The long weekend may have been gloomy at the island but the rain, wind, and the waves (oh, and the coast guards) weren't able to stop us from having fun on the island. Despite the weather, the management and staff warmly welcomed us upon arrival. We were able to tour the Big and Small Lagoons on our first day since...

Good review for this place is a must thats why even if Im months behind I wrote one. First, they are very convenient since they are the only resort who offer direct flight from Manila. Staff service is also commendable, they are knowledgable, very friendly and eager to assist. Rooms are spacious and clean. Food is abundant but average tasting....

Even though our stay was accompanied by a bad weather, the warmness of the staff was more than enough to offset the bad weather. Our garden cottage room is perfectly situated near the beach, we just need to open the windows to check out the beautiful beach scenery. The bed is comfortable and the room size is perfect for two...

The weather was really horrible when we arrived but the warmth of the staff made everything sunny and light not only for us but for other guests as well. During our first day, our awesome tour guide, Vlad, with his super awesome photography skills took some really great photos of us in the lagoons. Aside from taking us to the...

We unfortunately only got to stay here one night but wish we could have spent more time in these string of islands (Pangulasian, Apulit, Lagen, Miniloc and other smaller private islands owned by El Nido Resorts). Pros: The flight was included in the booking with pretty fancy waiting lounges just outside of Manila Airport and at Lio Airport with decent...

My wife and I stayed in Miniloc for only one day/night on our way to Apulit. The resort was very nice. The only negative I could offer would be the air conditioner in the room didn't cool off very well. It was nice and cold by the morning but warm at night. We scuba dived the one day were there...

El Nido Resorts is one of the best family getaways you can experience. The property is spread out across various islands and I stayed in Manioc Island. The whole vacation is relaxed and well managed from the time you check into the flight until the time you fly back to the private hangar in Manila. Abundant food, great service, a...

Me and my husband went for our honeymoon their for 2 nights(Aug 3-5). This place is awesome for us. We had the water cottage. It was a bit small but it's perfect for both of us. We didn't really spend that much time in the room because we are always out kayaking or snorkeling. The activities that they provide is...

I was turned off by the curt and offensive treatment I received from the reservations office in Manila, but all these were quickly forgiven as soon as we set foot in Palawan. The locals were warm, attentive, and extremely kind. To get to El Nido, we took a 50-seater plane from a private hangar in Nichols to Lio Airport in...
