Stayed for three nights and it was beautiful and memorable times , the view was so amazing from the beach with lots of vegetation surrounding the the resort which is beautiful to watch and enjoy the scene, the staff was so attentive and caring for the residents right from the start until we checked out , the boat trips we had with them were enjoyable with nice food and reasonable prices, the two owners were so welcoming and they provide the means of hospitality.
I will definitely plan to list it as one of the top resorts to stay in if i we had the chance to come to El Nido in the coming times.

Note: the staff was taking care of the mosquitos and sand flies in repelling them from the resort by a natural smoke so we didn't feel any harm from them during our whole stay.

I got in here by a mistake, I discovered a magical place Outside of town, very peaceful place, overwhelming nature, great food and music and the best service, a perfect place to enjoy a quiet weekend.

Loved this intimate and luxurious resort where you can do nothing or everything. We were resting after volunteer work in Luzon and chose a little of each. Island hopping/snorkeling/diving was probably our favorite thing. The instruction and equipment is great and we enjoyed the pristine coral reefs so much. The food is wonderful and the room very comfortable and creatively laid out. Thanks to Bettina and staff for a wonderful stay!

Qi Palawan was an excellent choice for an 8-day stay in Palawan. Accommodation in bamboo chalets with air conditioning was very natural, but it met our expectations. There is no refrigerator. Excellent is the outdoor shower. I recommend take your own towels from home. Drinking water is local in jugs with ice, but it's safe and great.
At this place there is absolute silence and peace. We recommend an all-day cruise on the islands and snorkeling in coral reefs provided by Qi Palawan. Price is 1400 PHP plus 200 PHP national park fee valid for 10 days. In price is included lunch and drinking for day. You can make snorchling with sharks and biggest clam on the world - Tridacna gigas...
The food is really very good and one can it compare with food in 5 stars hotels. I recommend tuna sashimi, tuna in chili, chicken in curry sauce or beef steak. Portions of food are big and prices are equivalent to quality - around 300 - 650 PHP plus tax 12%. Breakfast is somewhat uniform. I reccomend to staf more cheese, vegetables etc... 8 days stay needs more food for choice.
Mosquitoes and Sand Flies? Yes, there are many. It helps smoke (also scent sticks) and repellents. On beach can not be sunbathing because of sand flies. You can compensate it by boat trips on the sea. I recommend bathing in a great pool where you can order beer.
I certainly would not recommend going to El Nido where is a lot of people and noise. Only if you want to change the food you can order excellent seafood at El Nido beach restaurants. In El Nido is nothing except these restaurants and all-day boat trips around other side of Palawan island. This place is considered excellent with five stars.

Beautiful place, great food. The owner is a very nice American, who is certified as a master scuba instructor. I am not certified but was able to go scuba diving as the discovery level, meaning not below 30 feet and stay next to my instructor. We did the three island scuba and snorkeling and the picnic lunch and snorkeling another day. Free yoga classes daily in an open air thatched balcony. Also free stand-up paddle boards and their version of a kayak to take out into the ocean. We also enjoyed the cultural outing to a nearby village. Be sure to ask if they are doing the free cultural dance progam at the village while you are there. Loved the whole trip.
