We arrived from Puerto on the new Air Juan flight from Puerto Princesa and were met by the most helpful and kind staff. We were spirited away and a tall cool mango shake awaited us. We checked in , finished the formalities and were escorted to the most beautiful bungalow I have seen since Bali in the 80's Gorgeous outdoor... More

We took the ferry from Iloilo because it was shorter (12-hrs) compared to Palawan (18-hrs) on good weather. Iloilo also has international airport with direct flight to Singapore so it was convenient. We traveled on amihan season and the long ferry ride made me a bit uncomfortable (seasick) but the moment we arrived in Anino it was like paradise. Very... More

Those that are lucky enough to stay here will have an excellent time! The staff are friendly, the food is awesome, & the proximity to the beach is about 20 steps! For kiters - wind is cross shore, it is right on your door step (very handy, especially for lunch), it is a bit shallow at low tide, bring booties... More

If you want an exclusive place to stay. Without hundreds of other tourists with your own private beach and wonderfull house right at the beach. Go to quijano! Victoria is the best host you can wish for. She is a wonderful cook and a very nice person. Cuyo itself is a wonderful place. Beautiful island. Nice and windy, nice people.... More

My wife and I spent two weeks in March 2012 kitesurfing on Cuyo. The ferry rides to and from Cuyo were long, 21 hrs outbound due to weather, 18 hrs inbound due to delays. We travelled direct from Alberta, Canada so 48hrs door to door, next time we will stop in Puerto Princessa (we stopped on the way back and... More

We are used to travel on the Asian continent but this year, we really had a crush discovering the Philippines and specially, a little piece of paradise on the island of Cuyo. We are Kitesurfing amateurs and we have been able to ride every day just in front of our bungalow, on a beautiful lagoon with a perfectly oriented and... More

We travelled to Cuyo to attend a wedding last May 2012, but months before we already booked a cottage at Quijano Windsurfing retreat (also known as Anino Windsurfing retreat). Our friend (the bride) recommended this place and said that the resort is really nice and showed us a picture of the cottage from the outside. We checked out their website... More

we spent 5 nights here kitesurfing. Absolutely wonderful holiday. Ferry journey was long (17hrs) overnight but comfortable. We slept on top deck - pretty comfortable with mattresses. Ulrich organised someone to meet us off the plane at Puerto Princesa and he looked after us until the ferry. The retreat itself really is a 'retreat!' clean and comfortable cottages (only 3),...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Anino Retreat - formerly known as Quijano Windsurfing Retreat - is a small boutique resort located at the very quit Victoria Beach in Magsaysay on Cuyo Island in Palawan. With onshore wind slightly from the left side, it is the perfect spot for kiters for beginners and professionals and 100% safe and secure. You can kite inside the lagoon in breast deep water or outside the reef in the waves. Certainly one of the best spot for kite boarding / kite surfing in the Philippines. Cuyo island is secluded and quit, and surrounded by pleasant beaches. The Anino Retreat is located at a beautiful sand beach lined with coconut palm trees at the foot of small hill covered with trees. The Lucbuan Marine Protected Area (MPA) is located in front of the Anino Retreat. A great place for snorkelling and a great place to spend your vacation - the place where you want to spend your honeymoon. ... more   less
