We booked Cadlao during our trip last January 8-12,2021 (pandemic season). They recently opened Elnido and cadlao is one of the few accommodations that opened.
We were suprised that you have to pass through a cemetery to get to the resort. The trike also has to go to the shoreline before it can reach a cemented road from where the resort is located. We were also advised (only upon arrival) that we had to pay 50 pesos per ride contrary to old reviews here that this is free.
The room was ok and very cosy. The water from the faucent smells a bit rusty but understandable given that it’s been a few months since the resort had guests. The smell went away eventually.
The food is not at par to the price. The cost is to steep given the ordinary silog breakfast.
The trike driver and restaurant crew were nice.
It was very difficult at night and during hightide. The trike will not be able to pass the shoreline area and you have to walk. There is also no restaurants near the area. We only buy snacks at local tindahan (small stores).
So far its ok. They looked like they were badly hit by the pandemic. Hope the tourism will be up in the comings months.More
