El Nido, Palawan, is a prime destination because of the fewer tourists that book a stay amongst its powdery white beaches. This makes it a top choice for those looking for peace and quiet, as opposed to the party vibes seen in other Philippine beach destinations like La Union and Boracay. But it’s this very restful, relaxing vibe that has allowed many resorts to crop up in the tropical spot – so where does one book for a tranquil weekend in paradise?
Charlie’s in El Nido has gotten rave reviews from happy customers, all leaving glowing comments about the polite staff and the accommodations which proved to be great value for money.

Cozy Suites At Solid Prices
One of the reasons why Charlie’s gets overlooked is that it’s not a beachfront hotel. Located 6.9 km from Big Lagoon El Nido and Matinloc Shrine, it’s also that very distance that provides charm, as it’s far from the touristy crowds that often surround the El Nido B&Bs near the white sand beaches. Further, Charlie’s is a much more serene place to stay that still offers top-notch amenities.
Apart from free WiFi and room service, Charlie’s rooms are all air-conditioned and provide flat-screen TVs, safety deposit boxes, and access to a fitness center and pristine outdoor pool. Suites also have their own private bathrooms with bidets. Certain rooms will also have a kitchen with fridge, oven, and microwave – definitely useful for those who want to save money by buying and preparing their own food. Charlie’s guests can also look forward to an Asian or a la carte breakfast – quite the hearty meal to tuck into before spending a day at El Nido’s beaches soaking up the sunshine.
Customer Service At Its Finest
The distance from the beachfront need not put you off, as Charlie’s offers transport to the town proper, the airport, and the beach – just ask any of their friendly staff to assist you in making arrangements. Their assistance is also invaluable for those making plans for day tours or water activities in El Nido. Planning an island hopping tour with their partner travel operator in El Nido is highly recommended, as this will give the full tropical getaway experience with none of the hassle.
It may not be directly in front of the shore, but Caalan Beach is only 3.3 km away, and El Nido Beach a mere 4.4 km away. With the help of the staff who speak English and Tagalog, it’ll be a breeze to arrange for easy transport to these lovely spots before making your way back to the calming interiors of Charlie’s well-maintained, modern suites.
Go for a long chilltime session amidst the waves, then head back to the hotel and enjoy a refreshing cocktail or smoothie at the bar. That’s the perfect treat to cap off the day! Hospitable staff, bang-for-your-buck suites, and easy access to the beaches – that’s what makes Charlie’s at El Nido worth it.
