Our group would like to thank Mr. Marlon, our tour guide at Lagen Resort, for making this trip so memorable. His warm smile welcomed us at the airport. We were a bit apprehensive due to storm Carding, but he thanked us for coming and assured us that the entire team will do their best to provide a pleasant stsy. Each excursion was fun and safe! We learned so much about this beautiful place from him. Thank you to Ma’m Pia, the General Manager, and Chef Carlos for your excellence and expertise. We highly recommend Lagen Island Resort!!! Wonderful staff and facilities! Carlota C.

Amazing place to stay and experience the sites of El Nido. Management and staff are very accommodating and observant... you got what you wanted even before you ask it from the wait staff (Rey, Jojo, Gammie) Good job! Special thanks to our guide Benjie G for all the amazing sites and photos. He made sure we got to places before the hoard of people arrived. Awesome!

Amazing Palawan trip, made even more memorable because of the excellent service rendered by the staff of Lagen resort - Gamie, Jojo, Dave , Carryl, and the manager I forgot the name (welcomed and send us off sept 11 and sept 14) Our tour guides Rowell an Benjie who took very good pictures of our group. I will definitely come back and recommend your resort. P.S. We were fed well! P.P.S maybe the gym can get an "upgrade" :)

Spent the week here with a group of friends after our friends' wedding. Lagen Island Resort exceeded all expectations. The setting is spectacular (feels like a James Bond movie), there are tons of activities organized through the hotel (snorkelling, scuba, cave tours, kayaking), and the staff are incredibly friendly! Special shutout to our guide Arnell, the bartender Gamie and Jess, and our scuba instructors Rowell and Vladimir. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable!

Staff and management: Extremely professional, trust worthy, and polite before, during, and after our stay! They went above and beyond to ensure we were safe, comfortable, and enjoyed ourselves! The resort’s manager, Daisy, helped ensure we had the best experience ever! Room: The waterfront flats faced west, have balcony access with a partial view of the sunset! Comfortable room with superb privacy and quietness, good shower water pressure and temperatures, cold a/c, fast Wi-Fi (100+ Mb/s download and upload), and comfy beds! Activities: Life changing experiences and unforgettable sights. I don’t know how to swim and was kept safe by our activities coordinator Arnel! Go Pro and water proof case/bags recommended! My favorite activity was snorkeling and kayaking. Food: Fresh food and ever changing breakfast/lunch/dinner menu! Mostly meat and veggie dishes to eat with rice. Hearty meals to enjoy before and after an adventurous day! Service from Marina, Ange, Gamie, and Jess were superb—very warm and strong sense of urgency.

We went during the “low season” to celebrate our friends’ marriage. It was nice because there were less guests around. We had a spectacular time - the staff were so friendly, helpful and met our many tailored requests, including a special traditional Filipino dinner and a karaoke night. The resort is incredible - the pool is huge, the views are stunning and there are so many wonderful activities around the islands. Food was really great and they had unique dishes every day, both Filipino and international. This was one of the best vacations I’ve ever had. Very instagram friendly too 😁 5 star recommend 1000%!

Amazing service! We really enjoyed our honeymoon here. Everything has been planned out and made our stay comfortable, the activities were laid out systematically to suit our needs . The staff were all amazing from start to finish , Ma’am Jer , Ma’am Daisy, Sir Rey , Garnie, Jade, Marina who kindly let us borrow the pocket wifi and Sir Benjie who were our guide for the tours - Highly recommended , not only he is knowledgeable but he knows your needs even before you ask😁😁😁. After the kayaking and snorkeling , a massage is a must try. And don’t forget the food- the buffet is simply exquisite and the dinner under the stars is so romantic . Lagen Island Resort is simply divine. We will come back here again. 10000/10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It's our first time in El Nido. Food was great, we're assisted by the team of Mr. Jing Castalla. They even prepared a dinner with a very beautiful set up on our last day for our family and friends. Staffs we're very friendly and accomodating with the whole group. Absolutely worth going back with the whole family and friends.

We loved Lagen. They offered full board so we had delicious food from breakfast until dinner. Our tour guide, Arnel or more popularly known as Kuya Tams, was great - he was not only informative but very patient. He made sure we were always safe in our activities - kayaking, snorkeling, cave exploring and swimming. He also took our photos. The chef was also very accommodating and even gave us extra food we enjoyed. The manager Eds and all the service crew were really nice. The egg station chef patiently got our omelet orders, Gami and Jojo were also very attentive. They made sure we had drinks and fresh towels whenever we were at the pool without us even asking. They really made us feel so at home. Thank you Lagen. We hope to visit soon.
