Palawan being mom's hometown, we've always stayed there for a week or two during our childhood vacations (good old days). I've been to El Nido couple of times and have also been to this resort few times. The service here is impeccable! - professional, helpful, warm and friendly staffs. Welcoming you with a song and welcome drinks, orienting you with...

If you're not the beach goer type then this place will win you over. Had intended going diving but didn't need to as it seem all the fish in the world is in this one place all swimming a couple of metres below the surface. Did some island hopping, each one was better than the next. Service second to none....

It was brilliant. We can't wait to go back! Due to the storms, we were unable to do any sight seeing whilst we stayed in town, so on our last day whilst staying at Miniloc, the activities staff did their best to show us the must see places whilst in El Nido. The food was amazing, we had private dining...

As we left the island, ALL the staff of this beautiful island resort stood on the end of the jetty, singing and waving goodbye until our boat was out of sight. My kids and wife were moved to tears and it has taken me a while to recover enough to review this ideal island experience. Of the 3 El Nido...

Surrounded by the simple beauty of nature, it just felt sooooooo relaxing. It is a place I dearly miss and wish I could go back to. I especially loved the experience of taking a boat to go everywhere and seeing sealife , private coves and other islands.

Palawan is a very unique place, we have had the fortune of traveling to many coastal towns and islands and this is now at the top of our list to return to. The rock formations or lime-stones, caves, lush vegetation, crystal clear and warm water make this place breathtakingly beautiful. The crew at El Nido was very welcoming, attentive to...

The long weekend may have been gloomy at the island but the rain, wind, and the waves (oh, and the coast guards) weren't able to stop us from having fun on the island. Despite the weather, the management and staff warmly welcomed us upon arrival. We were able to tour the Big and Small Lagoons on our first day since...

Good review for this place is a must thats why even if Im months behind I wrote one. First, they are very convenient since they are the only resort who offer direct flight from Manila. Staff service is also commendable, they are knowledgable, very friendly and eager to assist. Rooms are spacious and clean. Food is abundant but average tasting....

Even though our stay was accompanied by a bad weather, the warmness of the staff was more than enough to offset the bad weather. Our garden cottage room is perfectly situated near the beach, we just need to open the windows to check out the beautiful beach scenery. The bed is comfortable and the room size is perfect for two...

The weather was really horrible when we arrived but the warmth of the staff made everything sunny and light not only for us but for other guests as well. During our first day, our awesome tour guide, Vlad, with his super awesome photography skills took some really great photos of us in the lagoons. Aside from taking us to the...
