Everything about this place is outstanding. The natural beauty, the climate, the comfort of the resort and the staff. The beach clubs and activities, as well as the private dining on the beach experience. Of course, the 2 for 1 cocktails at happy hour are an important punctuation for the day. Overall a wonderful place for an indulgent getaway.

In one word: fantastic ! Congratulations to all the Miniloc staff and particularly to the best manager of the world: Roy ! One of the best place I've never seen in my life with everything you need to be in paradise (activities, kindness, safety, confort, calm, seeviews, availability and delicious food !) The best resort in the bacuit bay !

The reason why I love this resort is its location - it is near the most beautiful island hopping spots in El Nido, such as Entalula Island, Big and Small Lagoon, and Matinloc (Secret Beach, Hidden Beach). I stayed at Lagen too, and although Lagen is more luxurious, Miniloc is more conveniently located. Takes 10-15min boat ride to go anywhere...

Palawan is heavenly but it's even more beautiful if you stay in a place like El Nido Resorts Miniloc! It's a whole different experience. Like the other El Nido Resorts, guests are greeted by the "singing staff." Immediately, one feels at home with the beautiful smiles and happy demeanor of the staff. Food is spectacular with a choice of local...

The island is small and beach area very small. There are not a lot of beach chairs, but since the resorts offers daily trips to other islands, most of the guests are off most of the day. We recommend that you take a private tour to the big and secret lagoon, at 7:30am to be before all the others coming....

We only have 4 days in this small piece of paradise but as at day 3 it is living up to expectations. High quality accommodation, superb buffet meals, with ample (wheat) gluten free choices, sheltered beach and house reef to keep avid snorkelling and divers occupied. The setting is stunning, nestled at the foot of vertical cliffs on 3 sides...
