Dara Fernandez Cottages Jun 25, 2008
Finding a place to stay in the of season in El Nido is not hard. There are lots of small places renting out beach cottages on the beach.
I stayed at a small place called Dara Fernandez. It has got 4 cottages all with a small porch in front. The two are sharing the same and is therefore 100 pesos cheaper. I could not find any other differences between the cottages - hence I went for the one with a shared porch.
There is a nice view of the bay from the plot and there is a couple of palm tree just outside the fence which makes a perfect mark when you are walking home along the beach. As an extra bonus you can hang out on one of the hammocks in the front facing the see.
A great thing about this place is there is no bar which means it is quite at night and for some reason there is not any rooster hanging around just outside you cottages which give you the possibility to actually sleep after 3 in the morning. The rooms all come with a fan which will turn it self of when the towns generators is shot down at 6 in the morning. This got an unfortunate side effect because it will most likely wake you up at 6.15 sweating.
You can put your valuables in a safe at the owners house - but be aware that you may face difficulties getting them back because the owner will leave from 8 in the morning and not return until 6 at night. And on a Sunday the owner will be at mass before 8 only giving you a limited opportunity to get your stuff if you are leaving on a Sunday.
