After 6yrs. I am finally back in El Nido but this time with my soon to be husband. We chanced upon this beautiful retreat haven in some brochures and decided to try it for a night, but we ended up staying for more nights! The ambiance is surreal - it brought us real privacy and bliss! The food were superb... More

We have spent amazing 4 days in Dolarog! After travelling around Philippines and visiting few places on Palawan we decided to take a rest in this little paradise away from any town or village. The hotel is situated near Dolarog Beach at the shore where you may get only by boat. A charming scenery of the resort and its surroundings... More

I am thankful for the nice reception of the resort. Edo and his staff are all welcoming, nice and helpful. I was happy with the overall cleanliness of the resort thought some guest who might be so critical might not agree. Electricity is limited because the supply is only due to generator set own by the resort. This is the... More

Having read the various reviews here on trip advisor we booked to stay at Dolarog with a little trepidation. We needn't have worried....From the moment we arrived our stay was punctuated with smiling willingness and competency. One should remember that nothing happens too promptly in The Philippines and isn't that the joy of stepping out of the rat race for... More

When reading the many bad reviews, and since we could not find any better available option, I thought: "how bad can u go with a $250 (!!!!!) a night..?". The location is absolutely amazing. Can't think of a better way to describe it. Rooms decent at most. Staff are very nice warm and greeting, although I have to add (unfortunately)... More

The Garden room was dark and humidit. Very big but very spacious. No water between 10-4 am.( couldn't have a shower after the beach) A similar room another hotel would be around 700 pesos. Even though it was so big, the resorts answer to my request for an extra bed for my daughter in the room was refused. Wonderful garden... More

I am surprised that people can criticise when staying in such a beautiful spot! Seriously people! The beauty of the place is the rustic feel - the porch areas of the bungalows complete with hammocks are lovely. The included boat tours (complete with all snorkelling gear) each day really make it - so much better than using the operators in... More

Food is at the lowest standard: - Breakfast far below what is currently offered in a small and cheap guest house. Overcooked eggs, scarce pieces of bread, canned juice. Beg for an additional cup of coffee. - Dinner is likely to be below your Company’s canteen level. Arrive early when grilled fish is prepared and fight for it as quantities... More

We went to Dolorog because of its location. There are amazing views and a beautiful beach (if you ignore the rubbish). On the first night the room was suddenly filled with thousands of ants on the bed, the towels, the bathroom and in the luggage, we asked for a new room. On the second night a Typhoon began at midnight... More

Good place to stay away from crowded El Nido. Pricey, but Island Hops are included, these make your day!(100€/night in a Bungalow) They will surprise you each day! just paradise. The Hotel itself is very simple, located at the beach, which is not so pretty. Food is OK, don´t expect nothing all over Philippines...stick with Pizza and you won´t get... More
