2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The El Nido Cove Resort is part of the LIO HOTELS GROUP which also includes the Huni Lio, Seda Lio and a few others. I was booked into the Cove but at the last minute was involuntary "walked" to a much lesser property, the Huni Lio. No compensation was offered by Lio Group and they did not offer even an apology. I booked a resort (# 7 in El Nido) and ended up in a Motel 3 1/2. I highly recommend you AVOID THE LIO PROPERTIES as your holiday may end up in the dumpster. There are better more ethical properties out there that may WANT your business.

It was an overall great stay. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The resort is very private and quite. The forest rooms had some maintenance issues which hopefully they were able to fix.
