This quint, secluded resort is perfect for anyone looking for a getaway from noise and city life. It's a short tricycle ride around way from El Nido town. This small resort has a central courtyard with beautifully groomed flowers and greenery, and a pool overlooking the breathtaking views of Cadlao island. The sound of tropical birds and the smell of... More

Went there 3 weeks ago and it was a wonderful experience for me and my fiance. We were impressed by the place, it was peaceful and quiet. At first i thought it was far because we used to ride 2 tricycle from the terminal but then we found out that its just a couple of minutes away from town. The... More

El Nido is truly a spectacular place and Cadlao resort is a really nice place but the staff let the place down. You get the impression that they are just doing their job, there's no real friendliness. The rooms are really good and the amenities great , the location is a little way out of town but not really a... More

I had an incredible stay at Cadlao. The staff was incredible, the views were breathtaking and the rooms were immaculate. I loved sitting at their restaurant and enjoying their view with a cup of coffee in hand. I never wanted to leave! It's a bit of a walk from town- maybe 10 minutes, so not too bad. I liked the...

I found this hotel here on Trip Advisor and all I need to say is "Wow!" Rarely am I this impressed by a place. I really don't have a single complaint and I really enjoyed my stay. The restaurant is excellent. I had three dinners, one lunch and all breakfasts (which are included.) I usually try different places, but it's... More

You musn't expect too much coming to El Nido, because it is in a very rustic part of the island (Palawan). The rooms were well presented (albeit a bit small), with efficient air con and they were very clean. The pool is nice, not an infinity pool like they claim but nice. It overlooks Cadlao island. The restaurant isn't anything... More

This hotel is everything you think about in a tropical island resort. The rooms are clean and look out on to the manicured grounds. It's a short trike ride to town, and the staff is available throughout the day and evening to take you to town. The pool is an infinity pool that looks out on to the bay. While... More

If you don't want to spend a ton of money staying in the offshore resorts, but need a touch of luxury away from the hostel type backpacker places, this is a good option. We also stayed in Miniloc after this stay - -Cadlao is a good value. If we come back to El Nido we will stay here and just... More

Spent 3 nights at Cadlao and had a fantastic time – it’s a short trike ride (or walk) away from El Nido town so it’s very quiet and private. Cadlao is a small resort with a nice pool overlooking the beach towards Cadlao island. The sunset view from the pool and restaurant is awesome. The rooms are very comfortable –... More

This resort is absolutely great: Comfortable rooms, stunning view from the breakfast terrace, nice service and just about 10 minutes walk from El Nido beach, so very quiet. The restaurant is fantastic and not really expensive. We booked the executive island hopping tour incl. lunch on their private beach: Not to be missed!
