After booking our flight to Palawan in March, we had to look for the right accommodation in El Nido that caters to our specific needs.
Due to the small size of this part of the island, it is somewhat difficult to find top rated hotel brands.
In our quest to find the right accommodation, we came across a lot of hostels and Airbnb’s but only a few top hotels to choose from.
We actually wanted to stay right next to the city center, so we continued our search.
A hotel in El Nido, Palawan
Luckily, we found the Sea Cocoon Hotel. If you are looking for a place that is centrally located, allowing you to explore all that El Nido has to offer with ease, than you should definitely book a stay at the Sea Cocoon Hotel.
The hotel is one of the top rated accommodation options in this area.
It is also surrounded by functional stores, a pharmacy, and it is just a 5-minute walk from the harbor.
The hotel’s motto is ‘your comfort is our pride’. The hotel manager, Eric, is friendly, super relaxed and helpful.
In addition, Eric will certainly go the extra mile to make sure you feel at home.
Welcome to Sea Cocoon 3*
En route the hotel, we saw only a few tall buildings and the Sea Cocoon Hotel’s four-story building is one of them.
It is perhaps one of the tallest building in the area.
Arriving at the hotel, we saw a security guard stationed at the door.
This gave us a feeling of safety and security. We walked into the pristine lobby and we were welcomed by friendly staff members who assisted us with our luggage.
After we checked in, the friendly staff asked if they could assist us with anything at all. All through our stay at the hotel, we never lacked anything.
What are the features you look for in a room when booking a stay in a hotel?
Top on the list will be a comfortable bed, spacious bathroom and of course cleanliness.
Well, you can get all of these and much more when you book a stay at the Sea Cocoon hotel in El Nido.
The hotel offers spacious, clean, and comfortable rooms.
The doors of each room are gasket lined, ensuring a noiseless stay.
All rooms come equipped with state of the art facilities including:
air conditioning, ensuite toilet, hair dryer, shower, in-room safe box, linens, towels, balcony, free Wi-Fi, and a large flat screen TV.
The balcony offers a great view of the surrounding areas. Unlike most hotels that offer spring mattresses, Sea Cocoon provides a memory foam mattress for a comfortable sleep. And when it comes to cleanliness, the hotel deserves a five-star rating.
Every day, after a full day exploring all that the island has to offer, we would always return to a clean room.
Sea Cocoon Hotel features an array of facilities including an outdoor swimming pool with chairs for lounging in the sun.
The pool is kids friendly and a perfect spot to relax. Free Wi-Fi available in all rooms. They have a 24 hour front desk and security.
Payment is fast and easy, as they accept major credit cards.
Every room includes a complimentary buffet-style breakfast. You can even choose how you want your eggs to be served.
Transfer and Tour Assistance
All staffs are exceptionally friendly and welcoming. If you want, the hotel can provide transfer and tour assistance.
They have a canopy walk and island hopping tours. Eric showed us the best places in the area and gave us great tips!
So if you have planned an itinerary or would like to explore the town to its fullest, do not hesitate to reach out to the hotel staff and they will be glad to help.
Also, they can help organize shuttles back to the airport. The customer service does their very best to assist guests with the requests they might have.
No other place in El Nido matches the hospitality, comfort and convenience that the Sea Cocoon Hotel offers.
Whether you are traveling alone, with your partner or as a family, this is the place to be.
We would stay here time and time again and would recommend this to anyone planning to visit El Nido for a couple of days!
