My husband and I stayed here for 3 days in their pool bungalow room. The room was fantastic, cute and had native filipino decor. The room itself is small, we found it somewhat difficult to open all of our luggages and have space for them on the floor - but the bed was super comfortable and romantic. The AC was... More

It is a nice hotel, the staff was really nice, and they look really cute with the uniform. The accessibility to the Hotel is really bad, the road has a hard access "filipino style", the best way to access is to take a trycicle until "la union" and then walk, if you don't want to walk the hotel is offering...

You have to walk past a cemetery at night to get back to the resort. No bottled water provided. This place is fine if you are... More

We stayed here based on the reviews and thought we would splurge a bit in order to experience the nice luxuries the hotel had to offer. It is a beautiful hotel with 2 excellent pools, a nice deck in front of your room and an incredible view of Cadlao Island. They really have many aspects and details down that cater... More

Cadlao resort was a lovely resort a bit out of town from El Nido. Getting to the resort was a bit of an adventure in one of the resort tricycles - the track is rough and you're not really sure if you're going to smash into someone coming the other way or not - they do it all the time... More

Located 10 minutes walk from main street of El Nido and with shuttle service to/from hotel to the center, it was a great place to stay. very modern has 2 pools and great restaurant, quiet. A bit expensive to what it is offering, smallish room with a big window to public area. overall, better than other hotels in its area.
