Secluded and special resort. Plenty of options for entertainment--snorkeling, kayaking, fun beach bar etc. Ecologically attentive: do not bring plastic water bottles; they will give you an aluminum carafe, and sun hats too. Golf carts to get around in; always punctual. The

This Island is something else. If you want a relaxing holiday on one of the most beautiful islands in the world then look no further. Treated like a VIP from Manila airport, arriving at El Nido you’re picked up in a golf buggy and then onto a private boat which takes you straight

The environment was luxurious and clean. The staff was friendly and caring. Unbelievable nature and animals. We had a group of monkeys on our veranda, visiting us. And we saw a shark and turtles at the house reef.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
Exclusive resort in what is a truly stunning location. We chose a canopy villa hoping for the best views, but in fact the large trees obscure pretty much all the views. (A beach villa or a pool villa on the lower ground would probably have better views).
The food menu was about

This was a special experience, that started when we checked in for our Airswift flight to El Nido from Manila and were shown through to the small VIP room by the gate ! On landing, our luggage was whisked away whilst we met Alvin our resort host, who escorted us on a fast speedbo

How much cash should travellers bring considering only breakfast is included in the package ? Thanks!
Is it possible to take a boat back into El Nido and back if we want to have dinner in El Nido? How much would that cost each way?
Yes, certainly. The hotel provides all kind of boat services. I don’t know how much would it cost but prices in the Philippines are reasonable. Check if they have the service after sunset,

Is it possible to hire private boat operators independent of the resort? I messaged the resort for a price quote for a boat ride between Pangulasian and Lagen and was told two things that concerned me: 1) if you aren't a registered guest, you may not be present on the island (i.e. our friends staying at Lagen cannot visit us on Pangulasian, and 2) the brief boat ride to Lagen Island would cost 5000 php ($90), which seems high for the area. Are we going to be a financially captive audience at Pangulasian or will we be able to avail ourselves of some of the more affordable options the area offers?
unfortunately, u can only go to pangalusian through their boat. if u can afford to stay there, it’s a small price to pay.

I will be at El Nido Palawan, Lagen, Is transportation from airport to Lagen, land and water, inclusive? or included? If not what is the nearest airport to Lagen and where can I get a transportation from airport to Lagen Island? How much? After the Island, How many hours going to the underground river from El Nido Resorts, Lagen/Apulit or Pagulasian? Any transportation? How much?
The Lagen and Pangulasian resorts are part of same resort group. Lio Airport bear El Nido is closest airport - it is 50 min flight from Manila. These resirts include pick up at airport , ceremonial Fillipino greeting with music/ food- snack/ non alcoholic refreshing beverage . Then 30 min boat ride to Resort - was also included with island getting seranaded by staff and given cool drink and fillipino lei. I was at pangulasian and it was awesome service . We saw Lagen , it is on nearby island in same island group. We did not go to underground river - big one is in coron some distance away- enjoy Palawan a magical place

Why are the prices on the 4 Islands (Apulit, Matinloc, Lagen and Pagulasian)n different? Which of the 4 is the best? What is the difference between the 4 Islands?
They are all private islands and I love most Lagen... near The Cove 2 which you can enjoy the tranquility and nature hiking. Miniloc has more island hopping and water activities by visiting the small and big lagoons. Pangulasian is the most beautiful resort as it has private infinity pool each cottage with a stunning sea view ( I cannot say further as I did not stay there, just for lunch) Apulit is best for underwater sightseeing of technicolor corals and fishes right in front of your cottage and more wide range of corals at Isla Blanca. All in these islands have professional courteous boatmen. And the food is excellent in all types
