Cadlao was a wonderful place to stay in El Nido. Even though I was there during Monsoon season, the lady at the front desk lent me a poncho for two days and each room had umbrellas. I thought the food at the restaurant was delicious and my package came with breakfast included. I booked my lagoon tour and I highly... More

We've spent 6 nights in cadlao Resort. We were so happy to find this magic place. The Islands tours begin at 9am and finish around 3pm. It s a pleasure after your tours to enjoy a wonderful place such as cadlao : its garden, its sunsets, its pool with view, and its quality of service. The young and new manager... More

We (2 adults and a 3 y.o. child) stayed there for 10 days. This is probably the best accommodation option amongst non-luxury resorts in El Nido. Ideal for a couple or a family that wants to go island hoping or visit beaches, and simply relax for the rest of the time. Very friendly and patient staff. The owner is always... More

My partner and I stayed in there for 5 days, the only good side of this property was it was away from the city proper giving us a quiet and peaceful holidays away from the crowd, the room was adequately furnished and the rest was a disaster. 1st, the service in the restaurant was awful, for breakfast, they would always...

A classmate and I were conducting field research for grad school in Manila and had just enough time to visit El Nido. I initially baulked a little at the price--I was thinking more of staying at a hostel--but in the end I am so unbelievably happy we chose this place. I think we were the only people there not on...

Stayed here over the New Year 2013-14 Holiday week with my sister in law. Hoping to return with my husband so I can show off El Nido to him. Loved that this hotel is away from town. Walked back n forth between the town, no problem as we needed to walk off the calories,though there was no problem getting a... More

This resort is located away from El Nido town and requires hotel's own complimentary tri-cycle ride to be reached. It is literally surrounded by laid-back B&Bs, community centre and bush. However, you can reach the town by foot in around 10 mins so it is still very convenient. The room is basic but comfortable and neat. The pool located just... More

A good place to relax and recuperation from the hectic work life, and definitely a good option for a rainy season, when you have to hide indoor and enjoy the scenery from the infinity swimming pool. Slightly more expensive than the other accommodation in town but worth the extra penny. In the end, it's not that expensive when compare to... More

We stayed at the Cadlao resort for a couple of nights last april and we enjoyed our stay a lot. The view from the restaurant and the swimming pool as well as the garden itself are both amazing. Like you are in paradise! The rooms were not too spacious, but nice and clean. The breakfast was very nice, as well... More

We stayed here for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon trip around SE asia. For our purposes, it was excellent. Location: As mentioned in other reviews, the resort is a 10 minute walk from El Nido proper (downtown). It's an easy quiet walk - quite pleasant if you don't have heavy luggage, but could be quite cumbersome if you... More
