My family enjoyed the quality and sincere service and practical amenities in this idyllic island resort. Eco-tourism and environmental protection are the buzz words in this little paradise. The seaside rooms are good for 4 family members.

There is not a single place to walk to (the "resort" is puny). The staff does not understand much English and was totally incapable of answering a simple question: "What prefix, if any, should one use in-country on a local telephone to dial an in-country telephone number?" (the correct answer is simply "0"). The food is mediocre at best. There... More

My wife (then-fiance) and I planned our honeymoon in Palawan for December 2014. Since El Nido Resorts are highly expensive, we were only able to afford to book two nights at the resort. After our wedding in New Jersey, we were excited to fly to the Philippines and begin our married life in a tropical paradise. Unfortunately, our trip coincided... More

I work in responsible tourism and the visit to Miniloc (as well as their other properties) has left me feeling so inspired (which doesn't happen often!). Not only are the resorts stunning, powered by the most welcoming and helpful teams, in the most incredible natural surroundings - but the way in which they DO tourism is outstanding and benefits both...

Nice, quiet island resort. A little bit pricey though, but all worth it. Rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious enough. Food was fantastic. Buffet meals every time. Staff was absolutely lovely. Everyone was accommodating and friendly, took into consideration every request we made, including making a 360 degree-turn while we're on the speedboat. Even helped us surprise our friend on...
