    A wonderful experience”

    We came last May to this splendid resort as a portion of our honeymoon in the Philippines. We deeply enjoyed the large and comfy cottage on the beach, the small attentions waiting for us to come back to the room and the quality of the staff. Our only regret was to leave at the end of our stay!

    Amazing place! ”

    Speechless... The place located on a private island. We stayed 2 nights on villa water which had an incredible view of the lagoon, they thought about everything until the smallest details! Cleaning the rooms and the accessories, the food in the restaurant, the hotel staff and the personal attention to the hotel facilities and the highest level attractions! At the hotel you can meet beach turtles and whale sharks while making massage, the hotel maintains a perfect balance between nature and the luxury it offers!

    The views are lovely. There’s a lack of water activities. The Internet connection was pain in the ass and no mobile network signal. They only have one restaurant that’s serves all day dining. Bar was boring they should have some entertainment. I wouldn’t stay there for more than 2 nights as it gets boring for me. But staff were great and helpful.

    Fabulous experience from start to finish! We were picked up from El Nido airport via van & taken to the resorts private boat. From there we took the 15 min boat ride to the resort island. Would highly reccomend the beach front villas as they catch the breeze from the sea. All food & options were great, fab cocktails & drinks. Service from all staff was second to none! Would highly recommend this resort as it truly is paradise!

    Perfect resort to wind down and relax in. ”

    We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff and service are great and we had a beach front villa that we thought was good value for money and in a great part of the resort. The food and drinks are good quality and reasonably priced considering the type of resort and that you aren't able to shop around. Snorkelling from the beach is good, we saw a good variety of sea life including baby sharks, although you have to time your swims carefully as at low tide it is very shallow. This resort is great for switching off in, as you'll see from other reviews the wifi isn't great so if you need to stay connected you'll need a plan B. It was fine for social media, but I struggled to get a Banking App to work. The pool is good, towels and drinks service all work well and we found the staff throughout our stay to be really attentive. We paid a bit extra to have a private tour of the archipelago and again felt is was really good value for money, we got to see some great spots without loads of tourists

    What a stunning place! ”

    This place is more than you can hope for if you're looking for a nice couple of relaxing days on your own little island with water activities, board games, massage, bar it's really quite stunning. Hard to stay and also visit the mainland as the boat shuttles end quite early. So once you're on the island you might as well make the most of it while you're there and then stay in el nido mainland for a couple of days to experience both parts of this wonderful place. But really this resort is truly picturesque.

    Absolute Dream!”

    We felt like we were so secluded on this private island. It was amazing! If you’re looking to unplug from the world, this is the right place to do it. Since their WiFi isn’t that great, they supply all their guests with so many other activities. It totally sparks romance if you’re traveling with your partner. Must do’s: 1. 530am Sunrise hike (take the hard trail) it’s thrilling, you have to climb up limestone rocks, but well worth it for the view. 2. Kayak to a small beach 15 min to the right of the resort. Snorkeling here is amazing too. You’ll be completely secluded on this beach over there it’s crazy! 3. Do any of theirisland tours Breakfast is included every morning of your stay, and it’s delicious! Choose anything off the menu that morning. You have to try the Cauayan Cooler ;) Dinner is impeccable and so fresh. Reccomend trying anything they catch fresh that day. Service is top notch and absolutely genuine. They want to help you and make your stay absolutely fabulous!

    Honeymooners”

    The views are amazing, and the seclusion is nice. But there is almost nothing to do at the resort after 5. You can't leave the hotel except at the timings of the boat rides which are aligned with guests checking in and out. There would be no boats if there is no arrives or leaves the hotel on a specific day - unless you pay. Everything in the hotel is over priced, no pharmacy on island, and communication is very difficult. No phones and wifi is beyond terrible. They could easily set up a local network for the amounts of money they charge. Tours are very expensive in the hotel, and their gift shop. I think we bough a beach dress for about 60 dollars?! But the rooms are incredible, especially the mid water cottages - we loved that. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

    Dear John, Thank you for staying with us in your honeymoon, we are glad that you like the resort, villas and the amazing views. Regarding your comments: - We have daily boats for the arrivals and departures to the mainland, you can ride them free of charge. For special schedules, we also can provide it but with an additional cost. - We are located in a private island and we don't have pharmacy inside but our nurse has all the medicines needed for first aid. Any other additional medicines needed, can be provided from the town. - For the internet, we have a local network already working. Ou main problem is the connexion, because we are in an isolated area, we are using a satellite provider and is not stable all the time. We are looking on alternatives to improve it. We look forward to welcoming you again at the island in the near future.

    Fantastic birthday stay ”

    Fantastic remote island! Lovely for a few nights to get away from hectic life!The staff are extremely friendly and accomodate to all of our needs. When first arriving at island it is breath taking the scenery and beach are out of this world, and the trek to the top is a must! Although just the one restaurant here, the food was excellant, a good price for the quality in comparison to Perth (AUS) prices...The tuna steak was delicious about $21 (aud).Sometimes they may run out of one or two dishes but what do you expect staying in a remote island! Our room was lovely and clean and although we stayed when there was a typhoon they gave us a USB with hundreds of decent popular films to watch! Every evening they knock on our door with a sample of a local delicacy, which is a nice touch before evening meal. The only downside is there are 5 taps for the shower/bath which can be quite complicating at times! Also if you are into fitness the gym is very small and could do with updating equipment.

    I LOVE this island! Beautiful! Outstanding customer service, plenty of activities including snorkeling, kayaking, 2 hiking spots & other beach activities, saw a reef shark, delicious food, 10 min complimentary massage, all included! I stayed in the Lagoon Villa, love the privacy and location. Would definitely stay here again. Things I wish would change. I found some wash away garbage on the other beach, I kayaked over there, I wish they would maintain this part of the island as well, other than that, the whole resort was clean! Also I wish they had better internet. I would love for them to have a zip line, rock climbing, a swing and some poi fish in their pond. I heard there is a cave in the island too, wish they have it available to see! Overall this island and resort has a lot of potential. I love it and would highly recommend!

    Leisure”

    Cauayan Island Resort is indeed a beautiful destination for a relaxing vacation. A place to unwind and enjoy nature. WiFi and TV may not be available at times but there are other things to do. I found this place on line and booked a beach front cottage. There are so many to see and experience here: the towering cliffs around the resort, the blue sea in front of the cottage and the sounds of waves throughout the day and night, sea turtles and schools of fish, birds chirping, sunrises and sunsets and much more. So get fre Day with your camera eready. The resort staff were very welcoming, helpful and always ready to assist and answer questions. During the beach tour, the tour guide and the crew ensured that guests were informed and safe. I recommend a bring along abwater resistant bag to protect those phone/cameras. The food and drink selections at the resort restaurant and bar were plenty and they were all good. Seafoods were fresh! I highly recommend Cauayan Island Resort!!!

    The hotel and its staff were realy lovely. Everybody is genuine kind and its just so pretty there. Everyday is like you are looking to a postcard and u feel like you are in heaven.we did a beach tour which was faboulous, so many heavenly and hidden small beaches, breathtaking. I would recomment a minimum stay of 3 nights. I saw many people come for 1 or 2 nights but then u can’t realy enjoy the hotel. Its the perfect place just to relax and do basically nothing.

    Great stay at Cauayan Resort”

    My wife and I loved the place! Food was excellent, as were the accommodations. All the staff always greeted us with a smile and made us feel welcomed. We took the Beach Tour while we were there and it was a great day of fun and adventure. We also had the After Sun Wrap and Massage at the Spa and it was excellent also. Our only disappointment was having to wait nearly 3 and a half hours to check in, but understand that check in time is 2 PM and our plane arrived at El Nido Airport at 8:50 AM. There also seems to be a little bit of an aversion to paying cash when services are rendered. We were constantly encouraged to charge everything to our room. I have always been a pay for it now type of person, so this is my preferred method. We were allowed to do it, but be aware that paying in cash means the staff will have to go to the front desk to get your change/receipt, so it may take a little longer than expected. But, all in all, we had a wonderful time and will return here.
