It's a beautiful place. The water in the ocean is crystal clear. I've been in different tourist spots but nothing can beat the beauty of this place. It's magical and an unforgettable place. Highly recommended.

As a lot of people already mentioned the resort is kind of rustic. That's not necessarily a bad thing but it's good to know it before the booking. We booked a Deluxe Seaview Room which was very small compared to the beach Villas we had before at other island resorts. The eco-friendliness makes them also relinquish amenities totally. You find...

Everything about this place is outstanding. The natural beauty, the climate, the comfort of the resort and the staff. The beach clubs and activities, as well as the private dining on the beach experience. Of course, the 2 for 1 cocktails at happy hour are an important punctuation for the day. Overall a wonderful place for an indulgent getaway.

The reason why I love this resort is its location - it is near the most beautiful island hopping spots in El Nido, such as Entalula Island, Big and Small Lagoon, and Matinloc (Secret Beach, Hidden Beach). I stayed at Lagen too, and although Lagen is more luxurious, Miniloc is more conveniently located. Takes 10-15min boat ride to go anywhere...
