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

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

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...

It is the nicest resort in El Nido. The whole family was sick and couldn't join the boat trips as we had originally planned. It was good to be in a resort where you didn't have to go far to get good food and could relax by the pool while we tried to recover. Staff was nice and friendly, the... More

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...
