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

As a family of four we stayed for a week at this resort in the Philippines. Our two sons stayed in one of the chalets built on stilts over the water and we stayed in the lodge. Both accommodations were absolutely lovely! This resort is the El Nido resort to choose for water activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving, boating,... More

Once booked in this resort, customers can access full board meal, rustic accommodation, free tours with a tour guide on every activity and unlimited use of non-motorized equipments. Thus, we felt pampered, secured, well-taken cared of and memorable. Our tour guide named "BOGS" is so friendly and approachable. He is the kind of person who will treat you as a... More

Heaven on Earth! Getting there was a breeze, we were well taken care from the time we arrived at ITI. 1 hour flight + 40 minutes boat ride. Stayed in Water Cottage 2, furnishing may be a tad old but the room was very clean. Air-con wasn't working well, 16°C felt like 26°C. We tried lunch at Lagen, variety and... More

I went there with my wife and it has to be seen to be believed. The unspoiled scenery, the crystal clear waters and breath taking feeling as you cruise from island to island on a catamaran is something that remains with you long after you leave. As others have said, it is expensive but definitely worth it as a once... More

We had a great package deal. All in (roundtrip airticket, private transfers from airport to the resort, buffet food from breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner, SELECTED sports and activities and accommodation.DRINKS excluded). We stayed for 4D/3N. Every single day, is worth spending exploring the resort. Clear blue waters, clean environment, no tv nor internet, just pure nature interaction. We stayed... More

Miniloc is one of the places in the Philippines that will give you your money's worth. The place is extremely fantastic from the cottage to the activities it provides. What was so great about the resort was you have everything that you need for a relaxing vacation such as kayaking, paddle board, snorkeling, fish feeding.... I mean what else can... More

If you want a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable holiday amidst lush greeneries, towering limestone formations, breathtaking views...then El Nido Miniloc is the place to go.
