We stayed here in a seaview bungalow for 8 days. The room was on the small side but it has enough shelf space to keep your stuff and not feel cramped. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable (neither too soft nor too firm), and the AC was cold, though we ended up just needing the fan at night.... More

In all objectivity, I'm not really able neither to recommend nor to advice strictly against Cadlao Resort. But build your own opinion... we paid >140 EUR per night. * Location * Twenty minutes walk or ten minutes tricycle ride from EI Nido town you'll find a very well treated green garden between 2 rows of small double-bungalows. A clean pool... More

this really is an amazing spot. That view in the picture - that's the view from the restaurant. Add to that some great food and service and a decent cost, and you're on to a winner. Five stars all the way.

We looked around a lot in El Nido trying to decide where to stay. There is a huge divide in the accommodation with a lot of cheap options that did not really appeal to us and the ludicrously expensive El Nido Resorts on the Islands. We were tempted by El Nido Resorts but could not face the price tag as... More

A group of 8 of us (2 families with kids) stayed here Dec 2014. 3.5* facilities, excellent restaurant, 10min walk from Town, free Trike dropoffs and pickups from road head, small pool, on the waterfront but no beach. Very slow wifi available only in the reception and restaurant (not in the rooms). Giving it a 4 rating because its expensive... More

While we had a pleasant time staying at this hotel, the major issue was the hotel’s lack of beach despite its location on the water. The hotel does have one small pool, but does not own enough chairs for each guest. The quality of service was quite low—maid service was laggard and many of the staff members could not, or... More

ElNido is AMAZING. I went November 2014. The weather was beautiful. This is a good resort which we stayed at. The resort is a great place to "get away from it all" there are no TV's in the rooms which I actually liked. This resort restaurant is UNREAL. you will fall involve with the food. I think we ate here... More

El Nido seems to have almost only the two extremes on the tourism-spectrum: dirt cheap (and thus dirty..) guesthouses for under 50 euros per night, and then the super-luxurious resorts for over 500 euros per night. Cadlao is one of the few exceptions to this: a good value-for-money resort in the mid-range of the scale. Fairly new and well maintained,... More

The location is great - the open restaurant and the infinity pool overlook the beach and there is a stunning view. The bungalows don't offer a great deal of privacy as they face each other, nevertheless they are situated in gardens which are attractive and well planted and tended. We were disappointed that the rooms did not include a fridge... More

This is a good hotel with nice rooms and fantastic view out to sea and Cadloa Island from restaurant and infinity pool. The hotel seems very new and décor is good. The rooms are not very private as they all look out over the rooms opposite and neighbours are right next door but this is also a good thing as... More
