Although there's just too many words to describe this place, im just gonna be brief about it ao here goes. Location: perfect if you're looking for serenity. It really is just 10 minutes away from the town. Its also near Cherry bus terminal (a convenient mode of tranpo if you're coming from puerto princesa). Price: Rooms are reasonably priced and...

Lovely staying in these cottages that match European quality standards. The resort offers solutions that I never saw before in The Philippines and the staff is always handy, not being only nice and gentle. It is located in a very quite place where you can hear only the sea waves. Breakfast, which was included in price, was great, abundant and... More

We spend 4 nights at "Caalan resort" Taiyo's new name. John welcomed us at the city and picked us up. The place is beautiful and quite. We set and looked at the sunset with drinks :) the staff is very nice, the AC is so needed in hot days. (Works amazing!) And the room is clean and convenient. The day... More

We had the lovely experience of staying here for 5 days over New Years. The view from the Oceanview room is breathtaking. The host's (Naoko, John and his family) are very helpful and friendly and were a huge help. They provided very detailed information to us right from the start and are some of the most genuinely nice people I... More

We just spent 6 days in El Nido over Christmas at Taiyo Village. There are technically two names to the place, and the more recent one is Caalan Beach Resort, though they are the same place. The owner, Naoko, is wonderful and her staff can organize anything you want! We did Tour A through them and had a great boat... More

We booked this resort because is was hard to find some available at an affordable price. We ended up staying for 3 nights. The place is great. the only con is that you have to walk to get there, its a 10-15 min walk from the town , but that's the only con. Thus making this place a great one... More

Strangely we were the only guests, which is a shame as the resort is lovely. The resort is at the end of the beach and the price is good, unlike the first hotel om the beach which was fully booked and way too expensive. Rooms are big with many windows. We could choose any room for the same rate as... More

We stayed for three nights in a cottage for 2.000 pesos including breakfast. We still aren't sure if we payed too much since the calaan beach resort is part of Taiyo village and their price is 1.500 pesos per night. All in all it was a great stay. The resort is around 25min walk from the main city, pretty quiet.... More
