Electricity You can only use the aircon from 3pm to 8am the next day. But they have fans in the room. Room Stayed at Deluxe room. Which had minimal view of the sea. The room is small. The beds were comfortable and sturdy. The water though was weak at times. The aircon was okay. They do not have tv, a... More

El Nido is such a beautiful vacation destination with a lot of island hopping tour you can do. And after a long day of fun and action filled tour its best to be on a quiet serene place to relax. Cadlao Resort is just the place to be.. The staff are all very accomodating, attentive and will attend to just... More

What can I say about Cadlao Resort... Its simply amazing. From the moment I inquired about booking with them I knew I had made the right decision. Wonderful staff, incredible food, and the bungalows are 5 star! i wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else when we return. Ryan

Loved our time here. Beautiful property, Friendly and professional staff. Great food in the restaurant. We especially liked the tours arranged by the hotel. More expensive than those in town, but smaller groups and Cadlao owns a private beach on one of the islands where you'll have lunch. Tour C is especially great. The only thing that kept me from...

Stayed for 2 nights. Perfect visit! Loved the food in the restaurant (we ate there for breakfast, lunch and dinner!) A huge menu section! Open long hours too. Cocktails delicious! Nothing could beat the view of Cadlao Island!! Very relaxed vibe around the pool and sunbeds were great! Never a crowd and could never get sick of looking at the... More

It was tough to find a mid to high level accommodation in El Nido but this fits the bill. It is quiet (just far enough outside of town) best suited for couples or those looking for a bit of calmness. It is not luxurious but it is nice, clean, and the food decent. Do not expect a high level resort... More

We stayed 4 nights. The room was comfortable and clean but on the small side. All rooms face a nice well maintained garden. The room does not have a fridge and wifi signal is too weak to use. The bathroom was a good size but the shower was poor, we had a few cold showers after long days island hopping... More

If what you are looking for is a small nice, picturesque and quite place to spend you days in El Nido, Cadlao is just perfect. The small bungalows have their own toilet and shower, with a small patio outside where you can sit and reed etc. One bungalow has two "rooms", hence you are connected to another guest bungalow. We...

We were so glad we decided to stay at the Cadlao Resort. Yes, it was a little out of town (10 min walk max) and it was not made obvious when booking which we felt a bit confused about when the trike from the airport dropped us off in town and told us to walk and their trikes could not... More

We stayed for four days in February. Cadlao fit the bill perfectly for what we were looking for. Here's my summary: Rooms: Great for two people. All faced an interior green area that was well kept and landscaped. There is no view of the water from the rooms, but a small deck off the front of each room is equipped... More
