Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

Thank you to the entire Lagen Island team for making our stay so memorable! Going to El Nido has been a dream of ours for the longest time. We arrived at El Nido with a very smooth transfers, an hour flight from Manila direct to El Nido is very convenient and we arrived at the Island after a short boat ride and we immediately welcomed by Ms Jen and her staff with this welcome song and dance, we were really pleasantly surprised by the kind gesture of giving us some fruit baskets on our room upon arrival and seeing little pastillas sweets with a handwritten print out short story about local culture during bedtime.We stayed in their beachfront for 3 days with two rooms facing their famous Lagen Rock,

The room was absolutely gorgeous, we took advantage of the proximity of our balcony to see different fish and just enjoy the view during our stay.

The breakfast was fantastic and dinner was absolutely amazing! We were able to enjoy a bamboo raft dinner under the stars during our first night, and it was completely breathless to dine in the middle of the sea with our private Chef Jonel and waitstaff Klein and Daisy who escorted us on our way to our private dinner.Each day we were greeted with smiles by Rey, Rose, Gamie, Jack to ensure we are enjoying ourselves!

The resort also offers a complimentary snorkelling gear,kayaks, and paddle boards which we took advantage of it. We also did an amazing excursions outside and tried both tour 1 and tour 2 that includes lunch, We had enjoyed the water sports activity at Dibuluan specially the hobiecat, our special thanks to Ellie, Lover and Benjie who showed us the beauty of El Nido and to Frank who assisted us on our lunch at Dibuluan.

El Nido is such a gorgeous place! And El Nido resorts does their best as a part of environmentally friendly they used paper straws instead of plastic ones.

Over an endless list of resorts, El Nido is the best! We had a wonderful time-thank you for exceeding our expectations!

PS: don’t be afraid of water monitor lizards, monkeys, this island is their natural habitat and they are all lovely! “ take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints”

What a place!

We stayed in one of their beachfront and have enjoyed the unique views and peacefulness of the resort,you will also find varieties of wildlife and animals like squirrels,monitor lizard,monkeys. The resort was simply mesmerizing amidst the forest with the beauty of the flora around. The breakfast,service,activities,room cleanliness were pristine.

I definitely suggest the resort for a honeymoon destination!

After a year of work, finally sem-break arrived and my family was able to join me in my travel here in El Nido. It is the first time of my mother to stay in a luxurious resort and for her, her experience here was extraordinary. She loves her room facing the sunset view, the little coco arts given every night with her name written on a leaf, which she brought home for souvenir.The resort itself is enough to do the activities especially that there is a pool and kayak area, but we do appreciate that the activity coordinators who gave us a suggested itinerary and convinced us to follow the schedule as it is better to be ahead of other guests from the town especially in the famous lagoons. Even if we were tired to do it, we were convinced because we felt that they wanted to make sure we won't miss anything.After the tour, i personally thanked the staff for the very organized activity and pushing through their suggestion was worth it.The only regret that i can think of was that we were not able to try the wind surfing and hobiecat at the beach club Dibuluan because we were with a group of old people or other guests who were not interested in such activities so we had to adjust with their time.Maybe it was also a good thing so we have a reason to go back next time.Despite the regret, it was still worth it because my mother loves the beach and that's what's important. After a long island tour, still,there is a pool and kayak area which my family enjoyed back in the resort, so our three days was so full, we didn't even had time to walk around the other part of the island. Staff we met were always smiling and enlightens our day so it really made us feel at home.

Room Tip: If you want to be near with everything,choose one of the forest rooms near the clubhouse,ground floo...

My husband and I just returned from our two week honeymoon, 4 days of which were spent at Lagen Island. With the resort nestled in a cove of one of the breathtaking limestone islands of El Nido, Lagen Island is without a doubt the most visually spectacular hotel/resort we have ever stayed in. The only reason for not giving this hotel 5 stars is that the food is just okay for the price and we had minor issues when we arrived with scheduling our activities, though the resort made great efforts to remedy and ultimately we were happy with everything from that perspective. The food is buffet for every meal, though there is a menu you can order a la carte from, and all of it is just ok. We reserved the "Romance Package," which I highly recommend if you are a couple visiting for the value and what you get. It came with a bottle of wine upon arrival, a massage at the spa (which we loved) as well as a private half day excursion tour, and a private dinner at the resort. The issue we had came in that the staff was not clear on why we couldn't reserve our private tour for the day after our arrival and when they told us they would get back to us on when our tour and our private dinner would be, no one actually followed up with us. The next morning we expressed that we weren't pleased with the lack of communication and the resort worked the rest of the trip to ensure they over communicated with us, which was appreciated! They ended up comping us an additional private full day of a private tour, which was great. I highly recommend splurging on the private tour versus the group tour if you can swing it. Our guide was amazing and not having to be with anyone else made it feel really special. I also recommend going out as early as possible. We left at 7 am on our tour and beat all the boats with tourists from the town of El Nido who are not allowed to go out until 9 am. The private dinner was also very sweet. If it had not been raining, they would have set up a private table for us on the jetty or beach, but because of the rain they put us on a balcony above the bar. They made it special by decorating with lights and plants and you have a personal waiter and a 4 course meal from the chef. This was the best food we had all week! Aside from the sheer beauty of Lagen Island, the best thing about staying there is having access to the various activities and private islands that El Nido resorts has to offer. DEFINITELY take advantage of the various private beach clubs that El Nido has, in which they transport you by outrigger boat and you feel like you are on a deserted island, but with a bar, lunch and various water sports options. They are beautiful! Also, snorkel at Miniloc Island Resort...best snorkeling we have ever done! The pool at Lagen is also beautiful, and while the little cove in front of the resort wasn't that exciting, you can kayak or hike from Lagen to the private beach around the big rocks and that is nice. All in all, the beauty and ability to go to so many incredible islands in the vicinity makes Lagen a 5 star resort, but the food knocked it down to 4 for us. IF we could give it a 4.5 we would! Would definitely return and still HIGHLY recommend.

Room Tip: Get the Romance Package for a great trip with a loved one!

This is the best place to stay around El Nido. El Nido itself is a bit of a dump. In a few years it will be super crowded; everyone wants to see the lagoons and nearby islands. Lagen treats you well, is clean, and quiet. There is a cute bar if you feel like mingling. You are a short boat ride from the lagoons and they have kayaks for you to explore Lagen island. Breakfast was great! Lunch and Dinner wasnt that great but all in all we had a great stay.

Room Tip: we had a water cottage but you dont need it to enjoy Lagen. the water cottage is in about 3 ft of wa...
