Wow! Wow! Wow! Unbelievable! This was one great, one-of-a-kind experience! It's so worth it! We loved the place, it's home away from home, especially so, that the staff and crew are all so loving, respectful, accommodating, hospitable, & so concerned with our safety and security. They wouldn't answer our querries/requests with a NO, but rather, would present to you something...

Wow. This place blew us away. The staff were exceptional and everything about the place was remarkable. We stayed 4 nights and had the time of our lives. We paddle boarded, kayaked, scuba dived, snorkeled, swam, got massages, and relaxed a ton. The location is excellent because you can go to the big and small lagoons by kayak easily and...

Miniloc has the friendliest and warmest staff! Everybody greets you with a smile. The food was amazing! Full board meals. It was different everyday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Happy hour was from 4pm-6pm. Try their Cucumber Collins and Gimlet! Very refreshing! We booked the seaview room and it was romantic, perfect for a couple. You get a balcony with...

Everything was great from the time we got to the private hangar in Manila to the El Nido and back to Manila. Service was outstanding. Food was good. Our room was outstanding and clean. The activities were great. We would highly recommend Manioc Island over the other Island because of the activities close to the island. If you decide to...

Am shocked to hear about the review about no life vests.. I had the exact opposite experience about guest safety.. I was canoeing towards the big lagoon without a life vest and the activity coordinator came running to the lagoon area with a vest I had crossed the place so went on without it.. when I made the turn at...

It is actually my second time to be in this resort and I must say the El Nido's experience has been consistently good. Pristine natural beauty - from the clear blue waters, colorful corals , friendly fishes (jack fish) and unique limestone rock formation. You cannot ask for more. It is indeed a paradise and certainly one of Philippine's finest...

The location of the resort is very near to the El Nido attractions of Big Lagoon, small lagoon, snake island, Lagen resort, etc. However, the resort does not care about guests safety during water activities. For our island hopping and tour of lagoons, a boat ride is required. There were 15 of us in our group but the resort could...

ElNidoResortsPH, Manager at El Nido Resorts Miniloc Island, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your candid review. We are glad that you found our staff to be "friendly and fantastic." It is quite unfair however to say that the resort has "no concern for guest safety," because, in fact, safety and security of our guests are our main priorities. We did not dispatch the group for the activity without...
