El Nido is my favorite place in the world. Stayed on Lagen for 3 nights. First day upon arrival we eloped at Cove 2. WOW!! Second day we did tour 1, third day we did tour 2. The guides are amazing and our group size was small (6 people total, or 2 other couples besides us). We loved the overwater... More

Three of us recently stayed at Lagen Island Resort and had an amazing time. It took us about a day to start planning how to return. We loved our water bungalow (also stayed in the beach bungalow, preferred the water units, had more windows and more light). All the rooms looked great, resort is small enough you can see the...

This resort is amazing. We had a water cottage room which was just beautiful. Its clean and spacious. All the staff are friendly and very accommodating. We were treated extremely well. We did a number of tours with our very capable tour guides - Randy and Thor. I have always been afraid of the water, but I was so confident... More

in the 3 times i've been here, i've never posted a review on trip advisor, so here it is. it's more expensive than miniloc, and for that, you get a pool on the island, and a great sunset view! food is just as good, as well as the rooms that have been newly renovated. life vests might need to be...

My wife and I decided to go to the Philippines and make Palawan our first stop. Based on our friends' suggestion, we chose this resort since they were well-traveled and raved how this was THE best place they ever went. How could we resist? The VIP treatment started after checking into our AirSwift flight where we were greeted by a... More

Save up and spend the money on el Nido Resorts. What you get is the experience that one dreams about; private access to unspoilt shores, coves, cliffs. A good activities director is essential. We had a good one at Miniloc. Lagen known more for diving. John F&B director was great in providing that extra something you didn't know you were... More

Am staying at Pangulasian but was able to stop by and visit Lagaan which belongs to the same company. It is more affordable than Pangulasian but you are able to access the same beaches and snorkeling sites. It has a tiny beach but is a great small hotel with great rooms which have just been renovated last year. I really... More
