Host Review Score

balay Paragua is a Guesthouse offering air-conditioned room with private T&B equipped with hot&cold shower and bedit. The property has a 24-hour front desk that offers transport ticketing, tour services, laundry and massage services for a fee. It features a veranda as common area with limestone-cliff view, a seating area and outdoor furniture where you can take a COMPLIMENTARY coffee/tea offered all-day. Main advantage is LOCATION...Perfectly located at the TOWN-CENTER, balay Paragua is more or less 200m away or 2-3 minutes on-foot from Bacuit beach and a stone throw from the main town entertainment and food district, 30 meters from El Nido Municipal Hall and St. Francis of Assisi Church and a 20-minute drive to Lio Airport.
Conveniently located at the center of the town-proper, balay Paragua is the PERFECT gateway to Majestic El Nido. The place is a stone-throw from almost all of our guest needs and 2-3 minutes walk to the beach. Aside from RUSTIC and AUTHENTIC place, LOCATION is our most advantage.
