BEST BUDGET EL NIDO PALAWAN HOTELS
Let’s start with the most popular destination in Palawan—El Nido.
Located at the northern part of the island, this town is filled with many spectacular limestone karsts and its small islands are also exciting to explore.
You can go to secret beaches, join an El Nido island-hopping tour, eat sumptuous dishes and scuba dive.
In our search for cheap hotels in Palawan, the following accommodations in El Nido are our top recommendations:
1. Garden Bay Beach Resort
Where to stay in Palawan El Nido that's close to the beach without breaking your budget? Look no further than the Garden Bay Beach Resort in El Nido. Situated right on the beach, this is arguably the best hotel in El Nido Palawan that anyone can afford. Even stingy and budget travelers.
On top of the premier location, you can enjoy an on-site restaurant, bike rentals and of course, Wi-Fi so you could upload your Instagrammable pics immediately.
2. Lio Villas Resort
For mid-range El Nido Palawan accommodations, we highly recommend Lio Villas Resort which has been one of the best resorts in the Philippines.
Amenities you can look forward to include air-conditioned rooms, Wi-Fi, massage, bike rentals, outdoor pool and laundry service in case you are planning to stay longer.
BEST CHEAP HOTELS IN PALAWAN CORON
Coron, which is located off the northern coast of Palawan, is a true paradise and is your gateway to nature.
Aside from the mesmerizing landscapes, there are a number of fun things to do in Coron. From snorkeling to hiking, relaxing in hot springs, diving and taking a dip in the cleanest lake in Asia, you’ll probably want to stay longer.
There are plenty of Coron Palawan resorts but these two stood out for value and affordability:
1. Kokosnuss Garden Resort
With the numerous Coron Palawan hotels available, why Kokosnuss Garden Resort?
This Coron Palawan resort offers fan and air-conditioned accommodations, on-site barbecue and restaurant, Wi-Fi, laundry, and massage service. But the best thing about Kokosnuss is its location.
It’s a mere 5-minute walk from the town proper, 10 minutes away from the trailhead to Mount Tapyas Point and a 25-minute tricycle ride to Maquinit Hot Spring.
Your Palawan adventure couldn't get any more convenient than that.
2. Princess of Coron Austrian Resort
The Princess of Coron Austrian Resort is just over 5 kilometers away from Kayangan Lake and Twin Lagoon, and under 3 kilometers away from Maquinit Hot Spring.
