I was hesitant to give either 4 or 5 There is nothing negative about the resort The services are 7 stars service. The rate I purchased included full board and some activities like island hoping and visiting the most important land mark in the area which the small😍 and big lagoon. You can have your launch in one of the... More

Miniloc was a delightful surprise. We initially planned to book at the more expensive Lagen resort but we were glad we chose Miniloc. The small and big lagoons, plus the secret lagoon, are only a few minutes away by boat. Snorkeling was amazing right in front of the resort. The staff were very helpful, esp. Weng (Edwin) who was very... More

My first time at Miniloc Island, El Nido Resorts. I've heard about this island several years ago, but the hefty price tag made me rethink if it's worth my hard earned dollars. Finally, I got a promo from the SMX travel expo for 3 days 2 nights all inclusive of airfare via AirSwift, full board meals, airport transfers, and activities... More

When you arrive to the magical island the views are astonishing, it looks like the mountains of avatar; green, high, impenetrable mountain with a nice beach front and this little buildings below. It one of the best views that we had in our one month trip. We were in a water villa, beautiful on the outside and the terrace, but... More

Minoloc took my breath away! Everything was perfect. From the warm welcome when we arrived, sumptuous meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner), coziest room ever, great great service. The staff at Minoloc were trained so well to preempt our needs... The three days two night stay was not enough. The best place to be at!

El Nido is about 50 mins direct flight from either Manila or Cebu on a 50 seater propeller jet. Another option to get there is via 5-6 hours land trip from Puerto Princessa. From the airport a boat will take you to Miniloc Island Resort for 30-45 mins ride. The resort is world class in all aspects. The staff are... More

We stayed here for a wedding. Honestly, if it wasn't for the wedding, we probably would've never stayed here due to the price. But man it was worth it. Once in a lifetime experience meaning you gotta fork out more money than you usually do. Service service... really great service! They focus on every detail. We had our 1-year old... More
