It takes a while to get to Apulit. A prop flight from Manila to El Nido, a two and half hour drive to Taytay over broken roads, and an one hour boat ride to the resort using 2 boats. After this hassle, we were welcomed by the singing staff with some ginger tea and shown to our stand alone bungalow, reaching out on stilts into the sea. The room is comfortable and the terrace has a great view over the craggy island studded bay. The bathrooms are however too small for a luxury hotel. Another criticism was the food. Though plentiful and with variety, it did not reach a gourmet standard.
On the plus side, the young staff are eager to help and very friendly. service is prompt and excellent. As we arrived during typhoon season, a lot of activities had to be cancelled, but the island hopping excursion was delightful combining snorkeling and sand beach sites. A myriad of other activities are available including diving and rappelling. Although not at the top of the scale for luxuries, it is a delightfully relaxing place in a paradisiacal setting.
