I'll start off by saying that this resort has potential to be 5 star - as it's in a beautiful location, with breathtaking views and cute over-water villas. However, this resort is by no means 5 star - this resort is simply "tired". The mattresses are old, the bathrooms are tiny and not well kept, everything needs a good paint...

I was actually surprised to have ended up with Apulit Resort, not knowing that its the former Club Noah Isabel from some 10 years at least ago. My kids and wife were with me, and my son Vitto from a distance thought it was familiara s we approached the resort from the banka ferry from the private El Nido resort....

We stayed at Apulit Island Resort as part of a two centre holiday in the Philippines. After being at odds with myself on which rating to provide Apulit Resort, I decided that "Excellent" is well deserved, don't get me wrong there are rustic / shabby elements which for some, would make this resort less than excellent, however, if you are...

El Nido Resort: Apulit Island is located at one of the private island in Taytay, Palawan which is 4 hours van ride from Puerto Princesa and another 1 hour boat ride from Taytay Port. Apulit Island is an eco-friendly resort meaning a balance of architecture and engineering but not destroying the nature. For 3 Days and 2 Nights of stay...

Water cottage near boat pierr. Furniture is nice, bed and linen are good, balcony or deck with amazing ocean view. Very clean. I only did not like small bathroom-it is really small and wet because of that size and two people staying there. Beautiful grounds, excellent service- we felt very pumpered with all services. Beautiful restaurant but food is Philipinno...

After a 4 hour drive from Puerto Princessa, then a hour boat ride. It is was welcoming to be greeted by a band and singers as one was given a cold scented towel to refresh oneself, and cool drink. We had booked the loft accomodation. This has bathroom and shower downstairs. Large seating area with two daybeds, and balcony with...

We spent part two of our honeymoon in Apulit Island. The staff there were amazing! As soon as we met them from when they picked us up from El Nido and welcomed us to the resort - absolutely amazing people! They made us feel welcomed and relaxed. They organised the activities well and made sure that we were comfortable with...

I finally found my happy place! Everything about Apulit was amazing! Friendly staff, great hospitality, delicious all inclusive meals and complimentary activities. We snorkled, rapelled, kayak & paddleboard. The pool was serene. You can see fishes from the water cottage. One of my favorite places to visit now!

We stayed at Apulit Island for the nights of 27 February to 6 March 2017 (8 nights). The island is amazing – you will not be sorry if you choose Apulit. We booked and paid for a loft water cottage as opposed to a standard water cottage. However, what you should know is that even though the loft water cottages...

“We stay at Deluxe Water Cottage Room #41 which is right in the middle of east side cottages, near restaurant and pool.”
