This is really one of my favorite place for vacation. I can go back over and over, and never get tired of it. Even if you are not a 'water person' you will still enjoy it. You can do snorkling, kayak, caving. The place is really beautiful and will be worth every penny. You can go as a group or...

This resort is one of my favorites, because of the relaxed feeling, secluded setting and amazing staff. Very good snorkeling and warm water,we spent hours snorkeling and so much freedom to go with kayaks wherever you want. Be careful for box jellyfish at neighboring resorts! Excursions were included and definitely worth doing. Over water bungalow has everything you need and...

Beautiful island, incredible snorkeling and kayaking, excellent service from end to end, and props for their emphasis on respecting the natural beauty of that environment. I stopped taking pictures because they simply do not do justice to the place.

This place is beautiful. Aside from the beautiful views, the staff are amazing, the buffet is a huge spread with delicious food, and it is very peaceful. We were welcomed with welcome drinks and song. When we departed, the staff joined us out on the pier, sang a goodbye song and waved bye as we floated away.

Filipinos are known for their hospitality, but staying at Miniloc took the word of hospitality to a whole other level. This has been by far the most beautiful place I have ever visited. I felt like I entered a whole different world, they truly represent the term PARADISE when you stay here. We originally booked our stay for 5 nights,...
