Island is beautiful. Service is awesom. Food is plentiful, but could taste better. Room is a notch above average. Am glad I went, but the price makes my stay only a once-in-a-lifetime stay. Give me a great discount and I will go again.

First of all, the resort is in a beautiful location and the diving from there was great. The house reef was amazing with lots of fish, we even saw a turtle. However, having lived in SE Asia for a while and visited several island resorts, this one felt overpriced for what was on offer. Only 10 day beds are there,...

Stayed here for our honeymoon. We were originally booked at Apulit island but because we missed our flight in the morning and subsequently missing the transfer to Apulit island, El Nido Resorts arranged our accommodation here (while we were still in Manila) for the night with the option to transfer the next day. We decided to just stay here to...

Outstanding staff and service 10 out of 10. Accommodation is not to a standard expected for the price paid. Food and other services are very good which would be expected. I will probably not return also considering the hassles of getting there.

Arriving there from Europe is a never ending trip, but when you do, you realize it was worth every hour spent on a plane. The island is just amazing and surrounded by dozens of other amazing islands. The atmosphere is unbelievable, the landscape one of the best I have ever seen. Small and big laguna are very close and with...

El Nido Miniloc was recommended to us by friends living in the Philippines, as having a very good reputation. Well, thank goodness for local knowledge, as El Nido is absolutely amazing! The restaurant served amazing meals, the accommodation was roomy and comfortable and the staff were first class. The resort even has its own private islands to visit with lovely...

The beauty of the island is beyond imagination. I have seen many photos before getting there and there does not seem to be a lens and a camera to capture the allure of the island. The resort is built into the lagoon to actually make it look even more stunning. We always seem to wish for an extra day in...

El Nido Miniloc is a must see destination and unique experience when in the Philippines. It's a great value. Just mention what you want, whether it is food or activity, the Miniloc staff will try its hardest to accommodate you. They're so attentive that they will come to help without you asking. Their service is on par with the more...
