We stayed at the Tayio resort from 20-26 of December 2012 and enjoyed it very much.
Since we booked long time in advance, we got the room with the most beautiful view to the ocean and islands. The resort is run by Naoko, a very passionate and helpful woman, which is concerned about the well-being of her guests. As standard, you just get breakfast in the resort, but on request they also prepare good dinner and lunch at very fair prices. In general the price level in the resort is extremely fair.
We are a family with two children at age 8 and 6 and Naoko arranged toys for them and special swimming gear - nice. She even gave them christmas gifts!
The beaches in El Nido are not good (stones and rocks), but 100 metres north (to the right), there is a small opening with the finest sand. It worked well for us.
