Paradise experience
Sumptuous food, hospitable and accomodating staff, great underwater reserves
Their warm welcome, wide array of food, great location, vast marine life reserves and sweet send off made us experience life in paradise and wish to keep coming back. Truly an amazing experience, perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Location is very scenic, exclusive and safe.

One with Naure
Staff, choice of water activities, food
The enitre trip was well organized, from the time you checked in to the private flight, arrivedat Lio and then transferred to the island and then repeated it uoon departure. So well organized that not a beat was skipped. Full marks for organization. Upon arrival to the island, you are greeted by the staff who welcome you in song. Check in is simpel process adn teh Activities Coordinator is there to plan your activities should you wish to do so. All activities were again well organized and very enjoyable. You could if you wish have no down time whatsoever. The rooms were disappointing; in need of renovation and refurbishment. There was a smell of mold, things were patched up and looked worn. The three meals were inlcuded and there was an ample amount of choice and very tasty food. Snorkeling is a must, visit the islands and the enjoy a day lounging and swimming in clear water with lots fo fish to keep you company. WiFi was iffy at times; okay in the main restaurant, not good in the rooms. Would fdefintiely go back again, but I would encourage management to do a refurb on the property sooner rather than later. Great for families, couples, solo travelers, in fact everyone.

Beyond excellent!
Location, People, Services.
My sister and I stayed overnight and it was one of the best vacations we had. I've been to a number of resorts around Philippines, but I have to admit that Miniloc Island Resort provides the best service so far. The resort itself was really beautiful. The room we had was deluxe sea view and the view from our room was breath taking. The staff were very very very nice and accomodating. The food were all delicious. Honestly, I felt that I paid less for all the wonderful services they have provided. That's how much value I got for the money I spent. I am really happy I went here. I will definitely consider coming back to this resort!

Unique but too expensive
Location. Exclusiveness, activities
Tobacco cost 10 times its normal price, apply that to everything. Being in a private island is not always an excuse. They tried to charge us 5000php extra for the transfer from the airport because we where the only 2 guests arriving at that time, the other option was waiting 4 hours for the next transfer. After several emails and calls they finally accepted and did the transfer free of charge (as agreed on first place) After 2-3 days there is nothing different to do apart from sunbathing (unless you are a diver) That said, the location is unbeatable, the snorkeling area in front of the hotel is amazing and the service very professional.
