El Nido Resorts Lagen Island
Ranked #2 of 17 Hotels in El Nido
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 March 2009

My husband and I spent 3 nights and 4days at Lagen for our honeymoon. Food (breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets; try their mongolian! put sweet and spicy sauces to your seafood and sotanghon noodles) and service were both excellent. There are a lot of activities to choose from. Don't miss seeing the small and big lagoons, as well as the private lunch (we tried the grilled baby back and salmon yummy!) which is free of charge but you have to schedule with your Guest Activity Coordinator in advance, or the private dinner with extra charge if you're willing to splurge. You get value for your money. Would love to visit again. They have a lot of promos during off peak season...

I love love love this place. I thought both Lagen and Miniloc were great. Miniloc seemed better since they have the snorkeling right in front of their facilities. However Lagen is just as great and beautiful because it has a great pool and better suites. The staff is warm and welcoming. Our rooms were good, clean and comfortable. We brought our Ipods, so we were able to listen to music since there's no TV in the rooms. But who needs a television when you go to a place like this? They are eco-friendly, food is great, scenic views are fantastic and well organized. It simply is paradise. I would love to go back again and again, but I think next spot to hit is Coron.

The resort is quite nice. The rooms were not as beautiful as they looked on the website. We had come from Manila and stayed at the Peninsula so maybe our expectations were high for the accomodations. The staff was accomodating and there is a nice vibe here.

El Nido Lagen and El Nido Miniloc are sister resorts. The El Nido resorts also have 2 islands that are affiliated with the resorts and offer food and activities. We paid for the inclusive package. Food and activities were included. There are scheduled activities and activities you can do on your own. The scheduled activities from the resort were nice but a bit crowded. I felt like I was on a schedule which is exactly what I was trying to get away from. There is regular boat service between the resorts. My wife and I started going to Miniloc(the sister resort) and had a great time the last few days.

Miniloc is not as modern as Lagen. The dining area is not airconditioned. It is more of a rustic Island feel. Miniloc is very close to the activities. It is a more relaxed, less formal feel. Snorkeling off the beach is amazing. Kayaking from the beach is amazing as well. At Lagen you can do these activities only when the seas are very calm. Also since Miniloc is closer to the activities, we were able to ask a guide to take us on private excursions and they gladly accomodated us. At Lagen we were encouraged to take part in the group activities

Do not pass on private dinners. There is an extra charge but it is an amazing experience.

We had a good experience. Since I prefer to explore on my own schedule, we had a much better time when at Miniloc. I would encourage travelers who like to explore on their own and who are excited about kayaking, snorkeling, relaxing on the beach (not really available at Lagen) to choose Miniloc over Lagen.

If you prefer a pool to the Ocean, airconditioning to breezes, and prefer to take part in large organized tours on a set schedule, and would like slightly newer accomodations. then Lagen may be the best fit for you.

Good luck and have a great time.
