Located in the quiet “sunset side” of beautiful El Nido, Last Frontier Beach Resort is a 3-star beachfront property that presents luxury and quality at a lower price tag. This beautiful boutique resort is perfect for honeymooners and couples who want to stay in the heart of El Nido but far away enough from the center to enjoy that elusive peace and quiet.
Located on the shores of Corong-Corong beach, the property offers 6 bungalows, 2 honeymoon suites and 2 standard rooms – all of which equally share the stunning views of the Bacuit bay. Each room has its own spacious balcony strategically placed to view those gorgeous sunsets. Other properties in the area include Buko resort, Mahogany and Sophia’s beach guesthouse, but Last Frontier’s value for money exceeds all the other properties. Moreover, only Last Frontier gives utmost importance to couple’s privacy by not allowing children in the property.
The staff at Last Frontier are all well-trained and they are ready to go the extra mile to ensure the comfort of their guests. Filipino hospitality is their trademark and it is exceptional. All guests receive a very warm welcome and are treated like VIP’s all throughout their stay.
The beach area, the gardens and the outdoor pool are cleaned and maintained on a daily basis. Daily housekeeping is also available. The rooms are clean and toiletries and water bottles are replenished every day.
Only Last Frontier Resort provides cable TV in the rooms. Other resorts in the area like Mahogany and Buko don’t. The rooms are very spacious with modern amenities and plenty of storage. All rooms also have a balcony and the bathrooms are huge and include a rain shower.
The beach area is clean but not good for swimming. The water is too shallow and full of boats. The swimming pool is smaller than other similar resorts in the area but it is nice and clean.
Corong-Corong beach has the best sunset views and Last frontier offers front seats to that spectacle. It is also a short ride away into town. Nearby beaches and tourist spots are easy to reach from the resort. There are nice restaurants and bars around the area as well.
Last Frontier Resort offers almost similar services to Buko and Mahogany but it is a lot cheaper. Here, you can get your money’s worth and more.
The shower and toilet area in the Last Frontier is huge but not as luxurious as the open air shower offered in Buko beach resort. Although there is a spacious balcony, Mahogany’s villas are more luxurious with their own private dipping pool. Standard room amenities include: Complimentary breakfast, AC and fans, rain shower, cable/satellite TV, mini fridge, mini bar, hair dryer, complimentary water bottles, toiletries, coffee and tea making facility, storage area and a balcony.
The Last Frontier Resort is popular online and it gets fully-booked quickly. With only 6 cottages and 4 rooms in the main building, you need to book ahead of time in order to secure a spot. Compared to Buko and Mahogany, the Last Frontier rates a bit lower. The resort’s overall score is 8.4 with 171 reviews in Agoda. With booking.com, the score is 8.5, but there are only 85 reviews. However, in Tripadvisor, the last frontier got better scores at 4.5 with 114 reviews.
Most of the guests complimented the rooms and the spacious bathrooms. They also loved the restaurant and surprisingly, majority of the guests loved the food which is a novelty as food culture in the Philippines is still not at par with western standards. A lot of guests also found the location to be really good. Finally, the amazing staff were also highly praised

Some things to consider before booking your room:
For bigger families with kids and for larger groups, we highly recommend the gorgeous grand villa of Buko Beach Resort. For couples who have money to spare, Mahogany beach resort is a more luxurious option with bigger rooms and private dipping pools. If you are traveling with kids on a tight budget but still want a beachfront property, consider booking Sophia’s beach guesthouse instead.
