My husband and I, together with our daughter stayed in Miniloc Island Resort for 3D2N. I've got to say that staying in Miniloc was the best decision we've made. Everything was arranged for us, all we needed to do was hop in the boat. All requests were immediately granted. I just wish we could've stayed longer. I love that upon... More

Stayed here during my honeymoon in Philippines. Initially was looking at other places in Palawan but this seemed too beautiful to ignore. This place is even more beautiful than in the photos, it was a dream staying here. The location of the resort could not have been any better. The rooms have a slight rustic feel to them but we...

I stayed in Miniloc Island for 3 nights and 4 days in 2008. It was my first experience staying in an exclusive resort and 2 days was too short to enjoy all the amenities. I needed to get away from the stresses of work and this vacation was the answer to that because for three whole days I was incommunicado!... More

We arrived, my two friends and I, and we were stuffed into a TINY cottage. After having stayed at their sister resort in Apulit we were taken aback by the smallness of their 3-person cabin. Our luggage is on the floor and desk just to make room for us to walk through to the WC. This resort is also overrun... More

The service is superb. the hotel is very much eco friendly and the staff never fail to remind the guests about this. I really enjoyed the benefits of staying in El Nido Resorts ~ sunrise kayak to big lagoon , kayak to small lagoon , breakfast in Lagen Island via speedboat, "owning" the Entalula Island for a couple of hours....
