I went to El Nino Apulit in August 2016, that may have been a mistake. It was suffocatingly hot and the A/C in the room couldn't handle the heat. It sputtered and barely cooled the room which made for excruciatingly bad nights. The snorkeling was very good, but the waters in August were not as clear as they would have... More

After long journey from Manila. This resort totally recharge me in a few hours. My first impression was about welcoming from staffs. That was so impressive. No need to find additional things to do here. Just sit back and relax. Food also good as well.

Fly Air Swift. This will take you directly to El Nido airport. From the airport, snacks are provided, then an hour shuttle to the port of Taytay. Another 60min of boat transfer to Apulit Islands. All resort employees are very friendly and accommodating.

Spent 7 days here and had a great relaxing time which was the intention after some full on time in China. 3 of us (adults) shared a 2 bedroom over water bungalow. Despite rooms being a little tired - noisy air con, windows needed attention as did curtains - it did not detract from the overall enjoyment of the location,... More

We stayed for a week and totally relaxed into this special island. The cottages are a little tired but the location is fantastic. Our cottage had steps into the water and so you can snorkel on the reef just by your back step. (Best at low tide). Lots of free activities, recommend the morning trip to Isla Blanca, a real...

We stayed here for 3 nights mid October 2016 for my wife's 40th. The location is amazing, hotel surrounded by limestone cliffs. We had some initial issues with wifi at the resort and no hot water but the Manager sorted out our issues very quickly.
