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

This was our last stay on th Philipines and we'd expected so much of it! It was really disappointing. They promised rooms with seaview on the beach... First of all we couldn't see the beach and the sea from our room UNLESS we were sitting on the terrace in front of our room. There was also no mini bar in... More

Finally brought my hubby and some friends to this resort as I enjoyed staying here last year with my sis in law. Beautiful grounds, good food. Don't know about the complaints about the water pressure but had plenty of nice very hot showers anytime of the day. Their boat excursions are above quality compared to those offered in town, except... More

We booked Cadlao because I thought staying near the town would be a good base point for island hopping in El Nido. When we arrived, we feel that the actual beauty and atmosphere of the resort exceeded our expectations. Our flight was cancelled by ITI so we immediately informed our resort. When we arrived, our room isn't ready because the... More

This review has been long due .. I stayed here in Aug 2014. I booked two nights stay here with family by contacting the hotel directly. I have stayed in a number of hotels and resorts in Asia, and clearly this place is not worth the value (I paid $150/night) by any means. This is ofcourse a lot cheaper compared... More
