Private and romantic resort with a scenic view

view, cleanliness, staff
The resort was clean and well maintained. The staff was courteous and adequately trained. It was a bit inaccessible from the main town as the regular tricycles cannot fit through the only alley going to the resort. You can either do 10 minute walk from there, or call the resort's own free tricycle service--up to 10PM only. The food at the restaurant seems overpriced compared to the other options in town. We didn't bother to eat there except for breakfast, which is included if you're staying in the resort; the menu didn't seem to offer anything better than what you could get in town for half the price. The room, on the other hand, is good value for money. The air-con was strong, it had hot and cold water, a personal safe and a porch where you could relax in front of the resort's garden. It could benefit with a bit of better lighting though. Overall, I'd recommend this resort for couples who want a bit of privacy and a good night's rest. p.s. the free wifi in the resort was useless

Loved resort

location, location, location
Perfect start and finish point for our overnight kayak trip. Loved the fact that you had double towel rails so we could identify and re-use our towels!

Great Value, But Poor Value for Tours & Taxis

Great value for accommodations & ambiance. Flexible with a 3P.M. checkout with no extra fee. Free trike from resort to the main street if you call/text them. The walls are paper thin between units so you can hear your neighbors private communication. Hot water rapidly changes from burning to cold. Annoyingly and dishonestly, they're 30-300% overpriced for tours & quotes that staff give for tricycle & van transportation. Don't tell them where you care going or let them arrange your travel or tours. They get a commission at your expense. Walk 2 minutes toward town on the tricycle pat toward the town and pay 30%-50% less on tours. Negotiate your own tricycle fees and expect the hotel to quote you as much as 3x the normal rate. For Example, pay 10-15 P (Pesos) for trike to town, 50 P to Republica Sunset Bar, 70-90 P to Las Colinnas, no more than 200 P to the airport, etc. Caveat: the resort will short-change you at every chance when making travel arrangements if you don't catch them. Don't let them make you pay more money for more passengers in a van. Pay for a van ride irrespective of the number of people. I don't regret paying for their boat tour, though because they provide a Kayak (100 P value), and a meal on the hotel's private beach on an island rather than on a boat & I became acquainted with other guests at the resort with whom I became friends. Restaurant is high priced with small portions, but good quality of service and food and nice atmosphere. The owners are friendly and personable. Don't take the 6-7 hr. van ride from Porta Princessa. If you do, then take a private van so you won't be jerked around on the rough road and squashed like a sardine. Expect to get motion sick in the van. Take the ITI flight directly to El Nido. Everyone I spoke with agrees. ITI offers great service but overcharges when they arrange for your transfer to the other airport terminals in Manila. Walk to the street and catch a cab for less than 200 P, rather than 750 P through ITI.

Excellent. but there is room for improvement

The staff service, the relative privacy, and the food,
It was farther from the airport than we thought, but the relative privacy was nice. We loved the service of the staff, and the executive tours were wonderful. The food was amazing, even the lunch on the private beach area during the tour. I would definitely recommend the Cadlao Resort to my family and friends. However, it was not perfect, We stayed at the Acacia and it was hard to adjust the water temperature of the shower, and the door of the bath/toilet area did not slide/close easily. But otherwise, it was the perfect vacation for me and my dearest friend.

Relaxing stay, beautiful location

Staff, comfort and accessibility
I specifically picked Cadlao as I wanted to a quiet location to unwind. I wasn't disappointed! The staff seemed confused at a woman travelling on her own (but this was a theme in the Philippines anyway!) but went out of their way to make sure I had everything I needed and was looked after. The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable, the facilities exactly as described and the food at the restaurant wonderful (although slightly overpriced). I would love to stay here again if ever I needed some more quiet time!
