3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We decided to treat ourselves for a New Year experience on the beautiful island of Apulit, having stayed on many of the fantastic Palawan Islands in fairly basic accommodation we had high hopes. Unfortunately we were left with the feeling of being let down and ripped off. We mailed the hotel 2 days before departing El Nido to see if... More

My wife and I decided to travel to Palawan because we thought the El Nido - Apulit looked so beautiful, but we never saw the resort. We booked a trip for early January 2015 for three nights, staying in the water cottages at Apulit Island, for which we paid upfront about $1700 USD. The trip requires a boat transfer from... More

First of all I must say I'm surprised that there are negative reviews about this island resort, we had the nicest stay of any resort we've ever stayed at. Yeah sure the rooms are getting on a bit but its the people that make this place. We arrived with two little children (Iggy and Pia) and the staff, from the... More

First, I will mention the positives: very friendly staff, good food, and beautiful setting.Unfortunately, we left here feeling extremely overcharged. Other disappointed guest assured us that you get much more for your money in the rest of the country, so we look forward to that. One big source of disappointment is the unapologetic false advertisement. We booked here mainly because... More

The choppy waters were a challenge but once on the island, the payoff was huge. They thought of a well-rounded experience. All the rooms have an unhindered view of the Taytay Bay and rocks/islets dotted on the horizon. Some people may not understand why the rooms don't have TV's or wifi, so you don't miss out on what you paid... More

Apulit is a little of a drag to get there but it preserves it from the hordes of tourists. In simple words the island is beautiful, plenty of fun activities such as snorkelling, rock climbing, scubadiving ( we went primarily for scuba diving but at the end did not scuba dive much as it was not that interesting but we...

We have been anxiously waiting to visit the El Nido Resory, Apulit Island since last year Dec but had to cancel our trip due to the typhoon. We never gave up, instead postponed our trip to January 2015. I would be denying if i said the journey to the Apulit resort was smooth as the waves were rough and a... More

It was a long sought-after desire to be a guest at one of the El Nido resorts, and having evaluated all the reviews on tripadvisor, and an excellent video from a previous guest on YouTube, my husband and I opted in favour of Apulit Island over the other three resorts in the El Nido chain. Sadly, after a 5-night stay... More

The airline of iTi flew directly to El Nido and a transfer was ready to bring us to paradise. The original plan was to stay for 5 nights at Apulit resort, but once we arrived, the beauty and incredible friendly people took over. We booked an extra 3 nights to enjoy all the amazing food buffets , Flora, Fauna and... More
