Cadlao resort is in Canlaan it's a bit far from the main beach of El Nido, approximately around 7mins by trike or motorcycle but it's also the reason why Cadlao resort and hotel is very serene and relaxing. There are no noises during the night. The surrounding and the garden is beautiful. The resort has a pool which makes it... More

We had a bit of a mix up upon our arrival to the port so the stay didn't start so great but we really enjoyed this resort. I really don't think the website does it justice (tho, I think the website was recently updated). If you want to spoil yourself a bit, then stay here. The view is just great... More

We stayed in four different hotels on Palawan and this was our favorite. The restaurant had better food than most although I would stay away from beef and cheese products here as well as the rest of the island. The food is more expensive than others, although still reasonable. It was served faster than other places on the island which... More

We had a wonderful stay in this hotel located 10min by walk from El Nido center. Everything was perfect: - Location : calm and in front of the Cadlao island (breathtaking sunsets). There is a small road that leads to El Nido beach or main road. The resort proposes free tricycle rides up to this main road (convenient if you're... More

We stayed at Cadlao Resort for 5 nights, after staying the first 3 nights at Mahogony Beach Resort on Corong Corong beach. We absolutely loved El Nido and loved both properties. We were happy to pay that 'bit extra' to stay somewhere clean,modern and beautiful. The restaurant is stunning, great views from everywhere you look in the resort- the website... More

We stayed here for four nights and were impressed by the pool, the room and the gardens. What really let this place down for us was booking the boat trips, we were recommended to do a boat trip through Cadlao as they have less numbers and the boat guides are really good so we did. We booked through the shop... More

It's 5 minute walk from the main beach. Very clean, quiet, with a pool on the beach. They have also a kayak for rent. The food is very good, with good shakes. The bed is big ang comfortable. very recommended!

We had a great time at Cadlao! My husband and I came for our honeymoon and stayed for 2 nights before transferring to El Nido Resort. Honestly, as beautiful as El Nido Lagen Resort was, I appreciated staying near town and it was WAY more affordable at Cadlao. We met a lot of cool young folks as well. We took... More

This place is amazing! To start with, they have accommodating and hospitable staff. The resort itself is just wonderful. Very quiet and relaxing. Cleanliness is superb. And, I love how they make and serve the food, sooo tasty. I would definitely go back 😊

The resort is really lovely and has the best views on El Nido mainland of Cadlao Island. I would 100% recommend doing the tours through the hotel, they take much less people than the tours that leave from the main town and you also have access to private beaches for lunch etc which is really nice, the tour guides were...
