Have stayed here before but probably won’t go here again. The location and facilities are great but the service has definitely changed since last time. I think the staff and ownership has changed. When we first arrived we did not receive the same welcome as previous times. The quality of food in the restaurant has dropped. Breakfast used to be... More

I booked for five nights for my family of 14 people based on a friends recommendation. Cadlao resort didn't disappoint. We had two family villas and two garden view villas. The resort is intimate with a limited number of villas. The rooms had lovely modern Filipino decor. They don't however, have TV's or fridges, and it's because they pride themselves... More

The hotel: We stayed in a garden view room which was surrounded by lush greenery and well landscaped and manicured plants and a stone walkway. There are 2 nice pools to swim in. Both face the water of the bay. The bay itself is not that great to swim in but has a good view. The (garden view) room is... More

Stumbled on Cadlao while out walking one day. Had a look round what is a very well kept set of rooms with pool on a beach location away from the main hub of El Nido. Had lunch on two occasions and the food was excellent and not overly expensive. With it's location and ambience as they say you get what... More

I stayed here with my partner for 6 nights in June 2016 and had a beautiful, peaceful and relaxing stay. We loved the gorgeous view over Cadlao island from the restaurant and the infinity pool. Cadlao resort is just out of town about 10-15 minute walk which we enjoyed but can be tricky when it is raining heavily, you can... More

This was our second trip to Cadlao Resort and it was just as good as the first. The key things that we love about this place are the rooms, they're a good size, comfortable and incredibly clean. The restaurant serves up excellent food. There are 2 nice pools with a great view over the bay and Cadlao Island and the... More

The price was affordable considering the view that you have, the accessibility out of the resort in case you need to get back to town or out of El Nido fast, the free full service breakfast you get and all day juices daily (loved the fresh buko juice), 2 pools were well kept cottages and resort grounds, massage service, complimentary...

We stayed here June 1-4 this past year. This resort is amazing! The service is top notch and their restaurant there is top notch as well. We were welcomed with a refreshing mango smoothie from the long car ride from Sabang. We were greeted every time by staff. Booking island hopping trips or to visit any of the beaches nearby... More
