Wonderful place off the beaten path that is well worth the venture. You won’t find anything close to this in the main part of El Nido. As others have said, don’t expect luxurious amenities. But do expect to be able to bask in the purest of nature, far away from the bustling sounds of tourism. An eco-friendly establishment that encompasses all the values we come to expect in preserving Mother Earth for future generations. Here, your doorstep is the beach and the entire beach is your front garden.

Staying here was like visiting an old friend’s beach home. Duli Beach Resort is a beautiful, impeccably maintained property at one of the most secluded and untouched places in the Philippines. It was a wonderful place to unplug, quite literally! You won’t find the most upscale of amenities and luxuries here. But if you’re looking for a clean, safe space to stick your toes in the sand and world-class hospitality, look no further. The wi-fi is wonderfully spotty, the evenings are adorned with stars and the sweet chirps of birds and insects. You’ll never be short of warm conversation, home cooked meals, and endless views. The small, clean, beach bungalows are a stone’s throw away from pristine waters and white sand. Close by are lovely reefs and a shallow, safe place for the kiddos to play in the water. Paddle boarding and surfing are available. Don’t forget your bug spray! If you’re lucky you’ll get a taste of Elma’s home baked Dutch treats, a bonfire, or a lovely rainstorm. You might find an old book or game of scrabble at the restaurant. Their young kids are charming, as are their pet chickens and friendly beach dogs. We can’t wait to come back next year.

The location is amazing, snorkeling is incredible, when the surf is good it’s gooooooood. But BRING BUG SPRAY, AND NOT THAT NATURAL SHI* YOU NEED DEET!!!!!! The sand flies are horrrible here and could very well ruin your stay if you’re not prepared. No ac, no Wi-Fi, power in the morning and in the afternoon, not at night or during the day. The food is really really good and the hosts are wonderful and extremely helpful. Over all good experience except for the sand flies and the heat at night. To be clear, we were here for some of the hottest days of the season, so I’m sure it’s more comfortable the rest of the year. They offer surf lessons and rentals, massages as well. It would be nice if the surf board rentals were at least discounted for the guests but… the price is fairly cheap to begin with. But still would be nice.

If you want, serenity, natural beauty, an escape from technology and fast pace, then Duli Beach Resort is for you! Refreshing sea breezes, stunning views, surf, and beach. Time your visit to see turtles hatch! Owners, Max and Elma, care about the environment, their staff, and your experience. Their hearts are big and their welcome warm. Carefully designed to be sustainable and with a small footprint, DBR is all about low key and low fuss. Switch off from stress and feel a part of nature and the DBR family. We came away feeling inspired, reinvigorated, and valued. This was a piece of paradise for us. We will definitely be back! Thank you to all the DBR team for making our stay so memorable and enjoyable.

Duli Beach Resort is as much about the owners, Max, Elmer and their family as it is the location, surf and accommodation. A 45 minute scooter, tricycle or van drive and a BUMPY road for the last 3km and you enter paradise. The only accommodation on that street of beach and everything you could Possibly want or need if you love to surf, boogy board, skim board etc. If you’re feeling unsure, then Dexter will help you find your surf legs. The way Elmer and Max have made their little piece of paradise environmentally friendly, a place for locals, tourists and expats alike is like nothing else!! We loved our stay and would recommend it to anyone wanting to chill Out, get away from the crowds and spend a night letting the sound of the waves lull you to sleep.

Quiet, secluded, Elma and her husband are exceptional to deal with! Very comfortable bungalow. Internet doesn’t work well but it’s perfect when u r that remote! The generator works just few hours a day and at night so u can charge your electronics. Great if you want to surf also and also great if you don’t! 45 minutes scooter ride from El Nido. My only issue is the last 15 minutes of terrible road you need to drive to get there on the scooter...Lots of hills, slippery road because of the rocks, i was really scared...and i met a few people that felt off their scooter getting to the beach...So just be very careful! Limited choices for food!

This is not a 5 star hotel. There is no hot water in the bathroom. Wifi is very very slow ... but there is something that today's world lacks ... Peace and quiet. escape from the loud world. Duli Beach Resort is located on a long beautiful and empty beach. It is quiet and peaceful here. The resort meets the basic requirements. There is a bar where they serve delicious food. The staff are friendly and helpful. If you want to go windsurfing or try your hand at this sport then this is the perfect place. If you want to get away from the whole world, spend a few days in peace and quiet, without all the hustle and bustle on other beaches, believe me this is the perfect place. It is worth noting that the resort's staff look after sea turtles. We were at a time when small turtles, after hatching from eggs, were released into the sea. amazing experience. The resort has its own windsurfing school. It is worth trying your strength. I recommend renting a scooter in El Nido and trips to nearby beaches and other places. I have 5 stars from me

We are a group of 13 people and we can’t describe in enough words how cool and how amazing is Duli Beach Resort .. we didn’t stay in their resort for nights( unfortunately ) but that didn’t stop us to keep going back in that Paradise .. The owner is a very very friendly guy same as his family same as his staff people..they are very welcoming everyone came in their resort rather for only 1 drink and sun or for long staying..drink, food, deserts are as u would expect (and cheap) .. Whenever u go in that area PLEASE DON’T MISSED, you can do so many amazing things : play volleyball,football beach, swimming,surfing ( or start learning in my case ) massage having very good and tasting food and drinks also enjoying the release off new baby-born turtles and many more .. thank you so much DBR thank u for all and hopefully I’ll see u soon Good Bless U

I can’t recommend this place enough. We had the most amazing magical stay at Duli beach resort. We stayed for 3 nights and could have happily stayed for more if our trip wasn’t so short! First of all the beach is absolutely stunning. We’ve yet to find anywhere else like it. The resort and rooms are sparkling clean. The family that own the resort are just so lovely and happy to help, it was really sweet watching their children playing and having so much fun everyday with the staff, really heart warming. You get a real family feel with all the staff and owners which makes it a really lovely vibe. Everyone has a smile, says good morning and asks how you are. The food menu was small but that honestly doesn’t matter when the food is this good. So fresh and flavoursome and the best food we’ve had in Philippines so far. The surf instructors Juan and Dexter were amazing and really made my partner fall in love with surfing. He went from never having surfed, to absolutely loving it after just two lessons with Dexter. The prices for the lessons are really reasonable when considering the attention you get. Finally, On this beautiful quiet beach at sunrise my partner proposed to me, so this place will always have a special place in our hearts and we honestly cannot wait to return. Thank you so much max and Elma for a brilliant stay we will definitely be seeing you again! Amy and Thom x
