My stay at Cadlao was really nice. The free breakfast was delicious and I love that they give you fresh fruit and fruit juice. The staff was fantastic. Just be aware the road to this resort is a bumby one in a trike. It gets muddy if it rains. Loved my stay, I would stay again. Great service!! Great food!

Cadlao resort is an absolute must see and stay. Situated at the end of a windy and very bumpy and extremely wet road (path), it is very exclusive and quite hard to get to in the dark. We had travelled to El Nido by the bus and it arrived at 7pm at the transport terminal so we asked a trike... More

Whenever I think of El Nido I think about how amazing my stay was in this hotel. The staff was really nice, the room was very clean, and the location was great. If you're looking for a place that is away from the main stripe, I highly recommend this. This was also where I got engaged with my fiancée so... More

We traveled throughout Southeast Asia for about four months, and this was one of our favorite places to stay! It is really beautiful, right on the water with amazing views and a nice swimming pool to relax by. The rooms were comfortable and decorated nicely. The restaurant at the hotel was also very good and we ended up eating there... More

This property offers just about everything that opens and shuts. The rooms are well appointed, extremely clean and have great amenities. I especially like that they not only have barbecues, but dishes on which to serve the food. The views are magnificent, great restaurants and other attractions are close by. Great place for all ages and especially families. Thanks to... More

First of all may I say that my partner and have travelled within the Philippines for years and stayed in different grades of accommodations and know what quality service is. When we visited El Nido, we were aiming to have a relaxed holiday in a quite resort that is accessible within El Nido itself. There were not a lot of... More

The best solution in El Nido, a bit out of the crowdy city center but linked with free trycicle by the hotel and better as in the center there are always many noises. Nice little rooms, wonderful view on the bay, very clean. Staff very very kind and available for any need.

We chose this place because of the good reviews and really the higher price tag, expecting the hotel and service to match the price. From the moment we arrived in el Nido we were dropped some 700m away with no real explanation how to actually get to the hotel. Lucky we had a local sim and were able to call... More
