OK, a bit of qualifications--my partner has been to over 60 countries all over the world and stayed at numerous high-end resorts (and plenty of low-end ones, too...), and i've been to over 30 countries, so between the two of us, we've seen a lot of places. we both agreed that miniloc resort is a really special place. she said...

This was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The service was exemplary - the staff are incredibly helpful, and were particularly great when it came to organising a private dinner on a remote, candle-lit beach to celebrate our engagement. The facilities are excellent, and I would definitely go for Miniloc over Lagen - Miniloc feels more... More

Because of the low season, we got a good deal on a 4d / 3n package through a travel agent in Manila. We were actually hesitating between Lagen and Miniloc, but in the end decided for Miniloc and having seen both this was the right decision! We fell in love with the place the moment the girl on the pier... More

I've been to a couple of Southeast Asian beach destinations, and while the waters and beach are usually great, unless you're paying for a private beach, there will be some reminder of the outside world intruding, such as persistent hawkers and blaring, seedy nightclubs. El Nido has neither, just peace and quiet but plenty of outdoor activities. You're paying a... More

We initially booked our accommadations through a local travel agent in Manila while we were still California, which was a big mistake. We recommend just calling Miniloc Resort and speaking to their travel agent and booking everything through them (flights and accommadations). We were stuck in El Nido with no flight back to Manila, thanks to our travel agent, but... More

It was the best place my family and I have been to so far. Really paradise on earth! The limestone cliffs were a sight to behold, and to live against a backdrop like that was truly breathtaking. Swimming with so many different species of fish was a magnificent experience. The marine life in this place is a wonder. We never... More

This has got to be one of the most incredible locations in the world. Not just the hotel, but the entire Biscuit Bay area. Luckily when you stay at Miniloc Island (or Lagen Island) you get free access to the entire bay and all kinds of different islands. It's an experience you will not soon forget. You pick up the...

My husband and I stayed at Miniloc for 4 days and 3 nights and had one of the best vacations we've ever had. We initially wanted to stay at Lagen but friends advised us to stay at Miniloc instead. We had the opportunity to visit both resorts (plus two other island resorts that the resort company owns). If you want... More

How can they set an amazing lunch buffet on an picture perfect minuscule island in the middle of nowhere and have the food taste so good and fresh ? Glass of Chardonnay, no problem.
