Madison I. Families with older children Canada, May 14, 2015
Great resort but overpriced for the service level

Private bay, activities, loft rooms
The little bay is beautiful and the setting is quite unreal, but we were let down based on what we were expecting. There are tons of staff, but it feels like they aren't picking up around the place or there to make sure the guests are comfortable. There were towels and things like dirty plates and drinks left around a lot for the amount of guests there. The rooms were beautifully set on the water. We loved all the activities available and used them a lot. The rappelling was awesome! The food is a buffet and gets pretty repetitive and isn't amazing. All in all it was a beautiful place and we had a great time but the place could use a little kick in the butt.

Paradise Found

Location, Staff, Activities
behind the grill was the best weight staff and the nurse solely made my trip awesome as he made me feel better after I had arrived to the hotel sick from a previous illness I had prior to arriving. This place is truly paradise and I'd recommend to anyone and everything.

Honeymoon stay

Great food, Outstanding customer service and beautiful scenery
Definition of Paradise. It was our honeymoon destination and we loved our 3 nights stay in this Paradise of an island. The food selection was great and the staff always put you first. Only bad thing I could say this place is the 2 hour van ride from El Nido airport - it is painful but worth it in the end.

Best island resort stay ever!

close to nature, excellent service, all inclusiveness
It was a hassle free stay at Apulit. The staff performance were fantastic. We were treated with much hospitality the moment we stepped onto the humble little paradise and even way before that on the boat transfer. There is even a coordinator who helps you to plan out what you can do at the resort. We manage to even see turtles and baby blacktips just off the boardwalk. You can even snorkel with them! Water at the west beach is really clear and we feel like we were in maldives!! The landscape around the resort is magnificent. Rappelling is also a must to do. The guides are great and will ensure that you are really safe!! The staff also planned a surprise birthday cake for us as it was my birthday.Thank you for the wonderful experience!! Will strongly recommend anyone to go!!

Truly impressed! Trip getting there was long tho.

All activities and the schedule provided. Zero effort from me to try to set up activities. Great staf which went above and beyond! They need more shuttle times to island from taytay. Had to hire boat
Excellent. Once there, it is worth it! All activities and the schedule provided. Zero effort from me to try to set up activities. Great staf which went above and beyond! They need more shuttle times to island from taytay. Had to hire boat because I arrived there at 12 and didn't want to wait til 3 for next boat. I would return there in a heart beat tho

Awesome!!! A wonderful holiday

Staff, natural surroundings and sustainability
This was a perfect holiday!! ALL the staff is very attentive and SUPER friendly and the natural surroundings are incredibly beautiful. We stayed for five days and experienced all their activities, everything was very organized and enjoyed every piece of it. I felt very inspired by their love for nature, by their strong will to preserve their piece of paradise and the promotion of a sustainable way of living. We stayed at the loft water cottage villa, the room was gorgeous and every morning we would wake up to try to spot some baby sharks and trust me, you DO see them along with some other marine life! The food was always very fresh and with a good variety. Don't miss their picnic lunch! We loved the whole experience and would definitely like to be back!!
