My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon over Christmas 2011. I wasn't going to write a review, but looking back now, I thought I should write a review for ordinary people like us. We don't usually book 'luxury' or exclusive hotels, and so this was a treat. We booked this resort due to... More

My wife and I stayed here last April. I loved this resort. We have traveled all over the world and love the private and low key nature of this resort.. The staff was great from the very start. We booked our vacation and the staff helped us set up scuba, spa and tours before we even arrived. When we arrived... More

We spent our honeymoon at El Nido Resorts Miniloc December last year. It was the best vacation we had, ever. Although it was on the pricey side, our every penny was well spent. We reserved months in advance since we know that December falls in the Peak Season category. We also paid full in advance before we were able to... More

If you are looking for a vacation with no stress this is the way to go. El Nido Resort takes care of everything for you. Just show up at the airport for their private plane to fly you to this beautiful well-maintained resort. All the activities and equipment - snorkeling, kayaking, diving, wind surfing, island hopping etc. are offered as... More

This is a long overview review but I still can't forget the fantastic time we had at El Nido. It is composed of 4 hotels but I found Miniloc to be best at preserving the "local" feel without skimping on amenities. You will be provided with biodegradable products for use during your stay. The bathrooms come with refillable ceramic jars... More

Our first trip to Palawan with the family, we decided to book our trip with El Nido Resorts. We came here on the day bad monsoon hit Manila. While Manila was getting flooded, we were basking in the sun on a deep blue sea. Sad for the events in Manila but so thankful for the perfect weather to start off... More

Miniloc is a stunningly beautiful and picturesque resort, and gave us an amazing holiday. There were so many different activities on offer there and the guides were more than willing to help and participate with most of them, and snorkelling with them was so interesting and helpful. There were 7 of us and we stayed for 4 nights. Our favourite... More

Our 3 nights- 4 days packaged family vacation in El Nido last June was simply marvelous. The private plane to and from Palawan was on top of the package. Aside from the accommodation, the package included all the meals and the fun activities. While the accommodation may be simple, it was sufficient, comfortable and clean. The buffets had a wide...

One of the best island resorts we have ever stayed in. Location was perfect facing the South China Sea. Accommodation was well maintained for this type of lodging in a tropical environment. The "garden cottage" is ideal for active couples returning after a day on the water, whilst the "deluxe sea view rooms" tempt you to remain indoors far too... More
