Went there mar 21, 2015. The place is awesome, unique and exciting. We got a seabreeze room, a nice and comfy room with a loft, my kids loved it, although i think it needs a good renovation. Just like apulit, no tv, but the free and fairly fast wifi was a relief. Food was ok and activities fun. Loved the...

From the 55 minute chartered flight in Manila to the 45 minute boat ride to the islands of Palawan, you'll begin to feel that you are embarking on a different journey, at least it's not my usual travel. Once you get to the islands of El Nido, there are four I think, be it Miniloc, Lagen, Apulit, or Pangulasian, it's...

Probably the most difficult review I have tried to write during my trip to the Philippines. On one hand here is a perfectly organised outfit- every pickup and excursion was perfectly planned and exactly on time. Staff was most helpful, assisting with the further organisation of my trip when Internet was down for two days. Fast and courteous restaurant staff....

The location is amazing. One of the most beautiful places I have stayed. The ocean is amazingly clear but not from the surface if it is windy and the sea is rough. We were there in January and had a lot of wind and some rough seas so the kayaking was tough and worse, the jelly fish were blowing in...

Thank you for your praises for the resort. We apologize if we didn't meet your expectations during your stay. Unfortunately, we have the regular Amihan and Habagat winds throughout the year, as we are situated on an island. Also, we cannot predict when there will be a lot of jellyfish, as nature runs its course. However, we will look into...

Miniloc Island Resort takes care of its guests' comfort from the very beginning to the very end of their stay. VIP treatment starts when you arrive to the El Nido airport from where Resort's shuttle gets you to the pier in El NIdo and then, by boat, to the Resort itself. At the arrival to the Island the whole staff...

This island is one of the most popular/busiest among the El Nido resort islands. The breakfast has great selection and really good quality.
