We have arrived to Minilloc right after staying at Apulit. It was very easy to manage transfer logistics, as the resort took care of everything. When we were on board the boat to the way to the resort, we enjoyed the beautiful views of the perfect nature around El nido. When we have arrived to the resort, we were a... More

Miniloc is the central location for most of the nearby popular water-sport activities. The Lagoon tours, kayaking, islands hopping, wind-surfing, sunrise cruise, sunset cruise, cave explorations, hobie-cat sailing, snorkeling tours, are all inclusive in the Miniloc package. The Lagoons tours starts at 8:30am so we have an early start for touring the lagoons before the rest of the tour groups... More

This luxury resort has all the services plus incredible natural beauty. The staff are dedicated to providing a wonderful vacation experience with personalized touches of lagoon tours (little lagoon kayak tour and big lagoon sunrise tour are a must do) and songs on arrival and departure. The facilities are clean, well appointed with a relaxed feeling. It's not a dressy... More

My boyfriend and I with two other friends stayed here for 4 nights. It was a great resort with plenty of activities. Food was surprisingly good, especially the marinated BBQ beef! SO GOOD!! I read the review before booking the resort and stayed at Deluxe Sea View which is the most expensive room type. I like the room but next... More

This place really wowed me. The moment we checked in for our flight it was VIP treatment. All the way to the island, it was very consistent and just beautiful. I couldn't stop gushing about how amazing this place was. Not just about the natural beauty of the islands itself, but the hotel, the food, the service and the people... More

We booked straight from their site which was no problem the inclusive package including the ITI air transportation. If you have... More

Party of 4 booked a 3 night 4 day package including air directly on the El Nido website. The facilities were great, staff was always cheerful and helpful. Meals were mostly buffets with the exception of an excellent picnic lunch. Buffets were much better than resorts in the Americas. There is always something for everyone. Food was tasty. Must try...

From start to finish, Miniloc Island ensures that you and your family will have an experience to remember. Granted it is not inexpensive, but when you realize the room rate includes all meals and most activities, it is absolutely worth it. The staff is amazing, food delicious and surroundings beautiful. The only negative is that the rooms are a bit... More
