It’s a family owned property and they treat you like family, they went out of there way to get us an island tour and stay longer than we booked. I would go back there and stay, the boat for the tour came to the hotel beach and picked us up really special.

Three nights in Carong Carong.
We stayed at Desert Rose for 3 nights in February. It is located in Carong Carong. It is a beach front hotel. The sunset views were amazing. They provided a basic breakfast on a plate served just outside your room. The management and staff were very good especially Nichole. The room itself was small. TV at uncomfortable angle to watch but with many channels.The drapes were not darkening.There was no blanket. All and all a good basic hotel worth staying at if you don’t mind not having the luxury items more expensive hotels have. I would consider the Desert Rose if returning to ElNido.

Good hotel with Great Staff
We only had one night here but it was good. The staff were wonderful and the location was convenient to several restaurants and transportation. The beach is not great in front but the beautiful beach is not far. Sunset views are fantastic

Too far
Too far from the main town. They transfered us to another room on our 2nd day which was a definite hassle. Breakfast is terrible! Dont book this hotel

Nice place with lovely staff and great view!
This place is excellent value with an incredible view from right outside your door. The staff are really lovely too. You'll need a tricycle ride into town as it's not central - about 30-50peso a ride but that's all part of the fun! You can book tours at reception too. I had a great time!

The owner is the nicest person i met on the Philippines, not a thing he wouldn't try to make your stay more enjoyable. Books tickets , offers shuttle service, offers laundry service, provides information, provides snacks, provides motorbikes all on a very kind and trustworthy basis. Couldn't have asked for any better. Hope to be back soon!
