                  Pros - friendly and helpful staff, variety of food served each day (no repeat), rooms and facilities beyond expectations. Surprised bday party arrange by the resort was lovely and memorable. Both adult and children had so much fun during island hopping and snorkelling. One of the best travel our family had. Thanks to all the staff and 100% recommends this place for vacation.

The long journey to get here was soon forgotten!

                  Apulit island resort is one of our favorite places to visit for 3 years in a row now. we love it there. the problem is that the scuba diving is too expensive to use, so we just snorkel each time we stay here. also it would be nice to be able to use the sailboat. otherwise it's almost perfect.

                  Apulit Island resort (El Nido Resort) is an amazing place. I definitely like to come back. I traveled to Apulit with my partner to have a luxurious stay for two nights at the end ouf our travel. The price per night is quite high for our budget, but once at Apulit most events are included. So we did two tours, went for night snorkling (small extra fee), had amazing food three times a day. So overall cost is actually manageable. Staff is very professional and genuinely friendly. Very clean and eco friendly. I could very easily spend a week at Apulit.

                  I love how the staff made us feel important and welcome! They were so attentive and would do everything possible to fulfill our requests. Water activities were great. Coral reefs were one of the best we have seen especially in the Isla Blanca. Though room and bathroom need a little upgrade, we would still recommend this to travelers who value privacy and quiet time. This place is beautiful and not so touristy yet.

                  We had a great time at Apulit, the location is perfection. The water and surrounding areas are just magical and we loved this part of the Philippines. The price is a little too much though for what you get. We have stayed at a few overwater bungalows and this was not one of the best. The balcony is very small and there is not much of a view from inside the room. The decor is very basic. Didn't really make you want to spend any time in there .

                  Amazing view from room, great snorkeling, all inclusive activities

                  I visited with my 2 sons,12 and 14. We were greeted at the dock with necklaces and cold drinks and singing. While they checked us in, we enjoyed our first buffet lunch. There were enough choices to keep everyone happy and the buffet-style dining was great for my two growing boys. When we got to our room the view was breathtaking, with the ocean right outside our balcony, beautiful blue and green water with other islands in the distance. We spotted black tip reef sharks swimming right below us.We stayed in the loft water cottage, and while it was clean and had a great view, the bathroom was quite basic, and the ground floor room was arranged quite strangely with just two single beds and a couple of tables stuck in. The bed upstairs was king sized and quite comfy and the room was very spacious. No wifi or tv, which was fine for us. The stairway leading down from the balcony to the water was not very well maintained and the water was filled with seaweed forests. It was gorgeous to look at from the balcony, though.The path was not well maintained, but on it we did see lots of huge monitor lizards and even a mouse deer. Snorkeling was great, with several gorgeous, huge reef sites all around the resort accessible right from the beach. Lots of giant clams, reef sharks, blue spotted rays, and we even spotted a sea turtle. All activities were included, which was nice. We went rappelling down the limestone cliffs-the guides took great care of us and we had an amazing time, not to mention the breathtaking views of the island from the top of the cliffs. We also went on an excursion to another beautiful island. Upon leaving we were serenaded again, and since it had been my son's birthday a few days earlier, they even sang him happy birthday and presented him with a gift- a souvenir t-shirt, which he loved. Overall, it was an amazing experience. If the resort grounds were better maintained and more attention was paid to the details it would be as close to perfect as you can get.

                  Wonderful location which fishes are just one step of your room. Very nice and helpful staffs, so warm are they. Love this resorts included almost everything (no extra charge) from meals to activities like snorkeling. You are paying what you get. The only bad thing is the room is a bit smaller than expected, and specially... the washroom is un-acceptably small.

                  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!!

                  Paradise Hotel, heaven on eart”

                  beach, location and privacy

                  Great resort, it's heaven on earth. We stayed here for a week and there's enough activities to keep you busy. The buffet food was good for the first two days but then it got very repetitive. The music they played at the restaurant was the same CD for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so it feels like a retirement home, they could change the music up. Apart from that we loved our stay

Staff is absolutely wonderful, and gave top notch personalised serivce.

                  staff, view, romance

                  I proposed to my now fiance there. We are going to return for sure. The staff is amazing they make you feel like you are the only ones on the island. The views are amazing. The scuba and snorkeling is the best I have ever seen. Although not proud of it I gained some weight while on the island as the food is/was amazing. I cant say enough good things about Apulit island....Truely the best place in the philippines.

                  New successful addition to El Nido resorts”

                  Fantastic service and dinning. Newly equipped cottage rooms matching comfort from a top city hotel.

                  The well trained and motivated staff make the stay and pleasurable experience with smiles a plenty and good music. The cottages are just above the beginning of coral reef and the view of the ocean is simply amazing. its a place to relax and enjoy as with its sister resorts its quite isolated and good for soma island hopping. They offer Kayaks and the best snorkling gear in the market to explore the regenerating reef which was pouched by local fishermen during the years prior to the resort opening.
