My husband and I decided to stay at Dolarog beach resort because we were enchanted by the beauty of nature surrounded this place as seen in pictures. Despite negative feedback, we carefully went thru those reviews to find out the cons about this place so we can prepare for the worst. After spending 2 nights, we enjoyed our stay and... More

Located on a remote beach with a breath-taking view. Ideal for small children as sea water is very shallow. Transport to and from El Nido by boat (bit pricey), 30 min beach-walk away from tricycle station which can take you to El Nido. Good restaurant and Italian wine celllar goods available for purchase. Available: a sea pool, reading room,TV /DVD... More

Stayed one night at the end of a stunning holiday in & around El Nido. Was expecting the worst after some reviews but was (relatively) pleasantly surprised. First things first - yes it's basic, and probably more basic than the cost would lead you to expect. The rooms have slats instead of windows, no hot water (in our room anyway)... More

After reading extreme mixed reviews of this hotel, my husband & I were nervous to stay here, so we cut down our original 4 night stay to 1 night. We thought it would be a pretty poor experience due to some of the bad reviews we read, however we were decently surprised by most of our experience. We arranged for... More

The view was beautiful from there and the room was ok. But I didn't enjoy the service and food. No one gave us any information about the island, how to go to the town (as there's no road near the hotel, had to walk on the beach for 30 minutes to reach the road and take a tricycle for 10-15...

Totally overprice . The place is nice but there is no service at all and food is very dissapointing and definitely not yummy. Plain food and not tasty. With people not trained and management not taking care of anything. Our room was a zoo. With big spiders, antz everywhere and geckos. There is nothing complimentary in the room. No water.... More

Stunning location and good food. Helpful staff helped us with customizing trips and other needs. Sounds like other reviewers on here are expecting a 5 star resort at 3 star prices. We had a great time and would recommend to others. There is no internet at this resort, so plan ahead if you work from your phone/computer.
