This place is beautiful. Aside from the beautiful views, the staff are amazing, the buffet is a huge spread with delicious food, and it is very peaceful. We were welcomed with welcome drinks and song. When we departed, the staff joined us out on the pier, sang a goodbye song and waved bye as we floated away.

Filipinos are known for their hospitality, but staying at Miniloc took the word of hospitality to a whole other level. This has been by far the most beautiful place I have ever visited. I felt like I entered a whole different world, they truly represent the term PARADISE when you stay here. We originally booked our stay for 5 nights,...

We have just spent 5 fantastic nights in an overwater villa on Miniloc Island. We snorkeled straight off the beach every day and the water was warm, clear and full of fish and coral. We paddled to nearby deserted islands to swim and snorkel on our own as well as enjoyed some of the organized activities offered by the resort....

If you want to really be taken care of, the El Nido Resorts experience is a must. From the special airport, to the smooth transfer to the hotel, easy check in, and attentive staff. I can't say enough about how the staff was always paying attention to our needs.

Ahfo, Miniloc! Where do I start? I seldom write reviews, but then again, I seldom have experienced a vacation like this! From the moment we were approaching the island, we could see how El Nido seamlessly integrated themselves with nature. Far from the other resorts which stick out like a sore thumb, El Nido really got me with this one!...
