This was the most fantastic place I have ever visited! The photos of this place don't do it justice. The staff was incredible, the food was great and the activities were more than enough to keep us busy for the length of our four day stay. Without any hesitation I would and will recommend Apulit island to my friends. It...

My husband and I and another couple traveled to Apulit Island in February 2017. We stayed 3 nights/4 days. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our trip. We were greeted by the staff, singing for us at the boat dock. Heidi, the resort manager also greeted the boat with brief rundown of available activities. During our time at the...

I recently stayed with family and friends at Apulit in three over the water villas for three nights.

We stayed for 3 days but travel time (1 hour airplane ride, 1.5 hour van ride and another 1 hour of boat ride) means that at most you get to enjoy if for just 48 hours. But on to the delights - view from the balcony of the water cottages is amazing and you can enjoy the sunrise and sunset...

This resort is outside the Bacuit archipelago quite far from the other El Nido group resorts. It is a long transfer which they make worse to pinch a few pennies (on our way there we waited 50min for tge hotel people to arrive from somwhere else) It was bought from club nova some years ago and probably never renovated.
