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...

Despite the beautiful landscape, this resort is not worth the price paid: - it started very badly when we had to call at least 10 times on 3 different phone numbers to finally be able to talk to someone so we could have them organize our transfer to miniloc - when we asked for a private transfer from el Nido...

This hotel has a stunning location in a beautiful bay.There are lots of excursions to go on if you desire and included in the price. The rooms are simple but are a good size and we had a lovely view of the beach and sea. Anything you buy from drinks to diving attracts two additional taxes, 10% and then 12%....

Our stay in El Nido was nothing short of stupendous! From the time we landed, we were treated to excellent service by the customer-centered staff! AND, all throughout our stay, each and everyone on Miniloc Island took great care of us: smiling, personable, professional and ready-to-please. We found Miniloc Island cozy: the very warm and inviting rustic vibe; and we...

Room was great. Right in front of the beach. Their tour and the guide with us was the best. When going to El Nido Resorts, ask for Andy the tour guide. He will tour you around the islands and take great pictures of you :)
