Beautiful, clean and airy rooms set in lush, green gardens. There's a lovely pool overlooking the sea and islands. The food at the hotel is very good too, dinner and breakfast. This place is a peaceful haven and a short walk from the centre of El Nido (~10 mins).

Seafood pasta in rich creamy white sauce was tasty and generous portion with shrimp, squid, mussels. Much tastier than tomato base sauce. Grill pork steak with mango salsa with rice was tender and juicy. My fish in banana leaf with mango salsa was a bit dry with no sauce. Service was good with 24 hr free wifi. A bit expensive... More

nicest but not the most expensive. Here they have real food with really good quality. Service is exceptional. If you book with them they can also pick you up. Price is higher than in other restaurants but affordable.

The restaurant was the only place we ate our meals because, it's just the best. Freshest and most delicious on the island for sure. We loved chatting with... More

We came to Cadlao after having been in very basic accommodations in Coron for 3 nights, then we had been on an expedition with Tao Philippines for 5 days. Our first night in El Nido, we crashed at a very basic but clean and nice place next door to the ArtCafe called "Aqua." But upon reflection, we decided that between... More
