The 6 hours land trip from Puerto Princesa to El-Nido was all worth it when we arrived in Entalula Resorts. The rooms we booked were the Beachfront and the owners were there to greet us & made us very “at-home”. Price is reasonable but do book months in advance to get good rooms.
You know that the staff are well-trained because they greet you with a smile everytime & everywhere they meet you. The room is just good for 2, but if you have another companion who does not mind sleeping on a mattress, then, so be it. You will be out the whole day anyway. The beddings & towels are replaced everyday & the bathroom is very clean, though crowded. Better bring your own toiletries if you are kinda picky. We love how they serve Breakfast, because it’s in front of the beach!
Just like anywhere in the island, electricity is out from 6am till 2pm. But what’s great about Entalula was, when we were having a drinking spree in the beach on our last night in El-NIdo, there was complete blackout!!! BUT, after some time, our resort was running on its own GENERATOR w/c only a few resorts in the island have!
I also recommend getting the Island Tours from the owner, because he has control of the Boatmen… aside from the Private Tour, the whole boat is for your use only - food is also from the resort itself & there are also free fins & goggles. Unlike with the other public tours you will find in the island, you will be w/ other people who you do not know & no other freebies! And just for your info, they have a CARTEL – meaning prices are the same wherever you go! For starters, get Tour A, for Cave-Lovers Tour B & for Beach-Lovers Tour C.
I would come back & recommend to everyone this resort!!!
