We had a great package deal. All in (roundtrip airticket, private transfers from airport to the resort, buffet food from breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner, SELECTED sports and activities and accommodation.DRINKS excluded). We stayed for 4D/3N. Every single day, is worth spending exploring the resort. Clear blue waters, clean environment, no tv nor internet, just pure nature interaction. We stayed...

Miniloc is one of the places in the Philippines that will give you your money's worth. The place is extremely fantastic from the cottage to the activities it provides. What was so great about the resort was you have everything that you need for a relaxing vacation such as kayaking, paddle board, snorkeling, fish feeding.... I mean what else can...

Out of the 3 resorts within elnido (miniloc, lagen, pangalusian), this resort is the best in terms of activities. Its near the lagoons and has a nice house reef... the food was better than in apulit but a lot of the rooms need updating.. we had the newer room but the aircon wasnt working well.. the management should also try...

If you want a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable holiday amidst lush greeneries, towering limestone formations, breathtaking views...then El Nido Miniloc is the place to go. I must admit it is quite expensive, but you do get what you are paying for. If you want the challenge of trying different restaurants, roughing it out in your island hopping adventures with less...

Stayed at Miniloc for 3d 2N and enjoyed every minute. Superb service particularly to our activities guide, Gee. The place is picture perfect. So tranquil and graceful. Will definitely go back and this time would stay longer.

When you use their chartered plane to get there, remember that you can only bring 10 kg of luggage, including carry on luggage. That is not a lot, and you pay quite a lot for extra weight. It is possible to store luggage in the airport until you get back, but we only found this out after we had checked...

At first i had hesitations in going with my family to miniloc but after the trip i really didnt want to go back home.everything starting from the airport lounge to the time we left the island was excellent. The only sad part about the trip was leaving the island. 1. The price is reasonable because it included airfare, the lounge...

Our return trip to Miniloc Island at El Nido reminded me again of why we love this place so much. Yes the facilities can be "painted" or spruced up but that to me would be missing the point of the whole experience. If you are looking for more modern accommodations then Lagen and Pangalusian Islands in their group maybe more...

I'd recommend this for couples who want ot spend some quality time. Miniloc island has no tv in the room and has no pool in the property, but with all other activities available this is not even a problem. Their rates are all in--- room, all day meals and all activities. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff are great....
