My family had the best time in Apulit! I loved how the resort preserved the beauty of nature. The loft cottage had a staircase leading to the water so swimming and snorkeling were literally a few steps away. I saw a sea turle and shark swimming right under our balcony! The food and service were also outstanding. Thank you ms.heidi...

We loved our stay in Apulit! We stayed in one of their loft cottages and it was perfect! The exotic wildlife (birds and rainforest animals) and rich coral reef in the island is incomparable to the other el nido resorts. You will get the same quality of service and amenities that is given in lagen and miniloc but the beauty...

Best snorkeling I have ever experienced. Beautifully clear calm warm water and a tremendous variety of both coral and tropical fish. Highlight, Two inch long Papa clown fish trying to scare us away from his family hiding in the anemone. Not the place for you if you are looking to be entertained, no TV but really who needs it. Great...

If you ever want to stay in paradise, book this resort and GO ! From all the places I've ever been (and I can assure you, that's already a lot ), is this the one that made the best impression. Splendid cabins with airconditioning, clear blue sea with beautiful coral reefs (recommended for scuba divers !), an outstanding buffet every...

Second time visitor of El Nido Island Resorts (first time; Miniloc in 2013). Twice the size of Miniloc. Absolutely beautiful when you arrive, whether its the lunch-time check-in, mid afternoon or last batch, you get to see the multiple shades of blue or the gorgeous sunset as you arrive. A great way to welcome you and start your vacation. Many...

From the moment when you land at El Nido airport until you leave Palawan, El Nido Apulit staff will take care of you. It's a long transfer from El Nido airport to the island resort comparable with the other El Nido Resorts (Miniloc or Lagen) but being the only resort on the eastern side of Palawan it really worth the...
