Miniloc has the friendliest and warmest staff! Everybody greets you with a smile. The food was amazing! Full board meals. It was different everyday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Happy hour was from 4pm-6pm. Try their Cucumber Collins and Gimlet! Very refreshing! We booked the seaview room and it was romantic, perfect for a couple. You get a balcony with... More

Everything was great from the time we got to the private hangar in Manila to the El Nido and back to Manila. Service was outstanding. Food was good. Our room was outstanding and clean. The activities were great. We would highly recommend Manioc Island over the other Island because of the activities close to the island. If you decide to... More

Am shocked to hear about the review about no life vests.. I had the exact opposite experience about guest safety.. I was canoeing towards the big lagoon without a life vest and the activity coordinator came running to the lagoon area with a vest I had crossed the place so went on without it.. when I made the turn at...

It is actually my second time to be in this resort and I must say the El Nido's experience has been consistently good. Pristine natural beauty - from the clear blue waters, colorful corals , friendly fishes (jack fish) and unique limestone rock formation. You cannot ask for more. It is indeed a paradise and certainly one of Philippine's finest... More

The location of the resort is very near to the El Nido attractions of Big Lagoon, small lagoon, snake island, Lagen resort, etc. However, the resort does not care about guests safety during water activities. For our island hopping and tour of lagoons, a boat ride is required. There were 15 of us in our group but the resort could... More

ElNidoResortsPH, Manager at El Nido Resorts Miniloc Island, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your candid review. We are glad that you found our staff to be "friendly and fantastic." It is quite unfair however to say that the resort has "no concern for guest safety," because, in fact, safety and security of our guests are our main priorities. We did not dispatch the group for the activity without... More

We visited Miniloc Island, El Nido Resort last April 21-23,2015. From the Lio Airport we rode a jeepney going to the boardwalk. We transfered to a small speed boat and then a motorized boat. We travelled for 45 minutes. Then we were transfered again to a small speed boat going to the wharf of the resort. Upon arriving at the... More

El Nido is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited in my life. Beautiful lagoons, clear water, white sand...it was heaven on earth. Miniloc had lovely staff who were accommodating, friendly and helpful. I kind of don't want to say how special this place was so it won't be overrun the next time I come to visit... More

We have heard about El Nido resorts for a long time, but was somewhat hesitant with the price. So when we saw the promotion at a travel fair, we just have to grab the deal! And it is worth every penny! We got the full package that included the airfare, accommodations and full board meals. El Nido Resort has its... More
