This area is paradise. If you are going to be in Manila for work or are planing a vacation to the region, go here. It is easy, inexpensive, unbelievably beautiful, and unique. Everything worked out very well for us. The room was nice, but we spent 99% of our time out on boats, at the pool, in town, or at... More

It's really lovely. Small hotel so everything is close and the staff were always friendly. Agree with others that the restaurant food is over priced. It was quiet and very relaxing. It is actually very family friendly, and we were very happy to let the kids roam the gardens (aged 8 and 10) . The free wifi is only in... More

I Chose Cadlao Resort and Restaurant primarily because of the view(more AWESOME when you actually see it for yourself!) and the good reviews in TripAdvisor. PROS: - resort has its own tricycle to get you to the resort itself (because of the resort location) - staff are friendly and accomodating - rooms and bathrooms are clean and comfortable - restaurant...

My hubby and I found this gem in 2012, newly opened. My hubby fell in love with El Nido and Cadlao Resort made it perfect for his first visit. The staff were warm and made us feel at home. Very calm, relaxing grounds, just heaven. Have been going to El Nido since long ago and can't wait to be back... More

Very quaint and relaxing beach hotel. We stayed over the weekend, and this hotel was quite comfortable. The pool is quite small however given the area, it is well suited. The view from the pool is beautiful. The rooms are clean, and the staff are also very helpful.

A great resort for the adventurist at heart. We went during the raining season and the weather was perfect. The low season allowed a break in prices. The hotel only had 8 duplex bungalows, so I can image it would be hard get in during the peak season. I believe Cadlao is easily the best hotel in El Nido on... More

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
