My husband and I traveled here in July with family. We didn't arrange transportation with the hotel from the El Nido airport but we should have. We took a tricycle to the town (~10 mins/250 pesos) and the Cadlao tricycle gave us another ride to the hotel (5 mins/ free!) since the regular tricycles can't fit on the roads. Pros:... More

Totally loved this place, roome was clean and comfy, with an your own bathroom. Had lovely doors you could just open and sit on the veranda. Loved the pool with the view onto the mountains, very relaxing. All in all a lovely stay and a great place to relax.

For starters you can't go wrong with El Nido. By far the most diverse and all nature adventure destination in Palawan. That being said, resorts and hotels are a matter of preference based on your vacation plans. If you are there for your honeymoon, good for you this place is so romantic and mystical, but you wouldn't see all of... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights here. The place is clean, quiet and definitely have serene views. Perfect for tranquility and relaxation after the long drive to El Nido. Not a party place. On our first night my husband and I had a soothing massage outdoors. Foods was okay. Rooms were nice though our shower could have used more... More

The grounds were certainly nice, somewhat small but nice. It was the fact that I paid extra for the "Deluxe Bungalow" when they were all identical! The management told me that it was closer to the pool and had a better wi fi. It was so small a place that there was very little difference in where the rooms where... More

We had a bad experience because of the lack of consideration from the resort management. And if i have to go to El Nido again, I would surely stay somewhere else. Nobody would like to stay in a place when you get the feeling that they are out to make a quick buck. The resort per se is green. The... More

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...
