Excellent location and facility. very professional staff, island activities. Bam-bam was our guide twice he is young but excellent and very nice. great happy hour. food could be better. they are trying very hard
Amazing honeymoon ”
My wife and I just visited Lagen Resort for 1 week for our honeymoon. The resort is beautiful and the photos don't seem to do it justice. All the staff are extremely friendly and willing to help with anything you may need. You can relax by the pool if you just want to chill out, but we decided to get out most of the days. We did a few different tours and I'd highly recommend Secret Beach and swimming with the Jack Fish if you get the chance. The food was also great and more affordable than I thought it would be. 2 for 1 happy hour 4-6pm every day was a bonus
I had a tear drop..surprisingly..when Jes and the team bid us farewell. The stay was indeed awesome and indeed El Nido Lagen resort is paradise. Hospitality was top notch all the way. Special thanks to Randy our tour guide for his professionalism on the island trips and snorkelling ..and BamBam the youngest of the team but great photography skills and captured the best shoot for the sunrise. I applaud the team for the eco- spirit and made me realise how much more we should and can do back home. Keep up the great efforts and El Nido will be here as our heaven retreat!
Very nice resort for relaxation, food were average. Disadvanteges: 1) Expensive tours with the resort 4000 peso/ person while in the town is 1200 peso, same boat with less time (just 4 hours while in town from 9 am to 5 pm) 2) The resort doesn’t have any scheduled transportation to El nido town, if you want you should book a privte boat which cost 7000 peso (135 $). 3) The beds were extremly uncomfortable and small. 4) The big lagon (most popular place) in not included with regular tours which cost 4000 pesos, you should book a private boat. 5) Something i didn’t like, even when you pay for regular tours or private, they don’t provide you with water !!. Finally, coming her is a trap, you’ll not able to see the town and buy any thing outside the resort(resuturants, super market,tours) I Recommends to come here and relax for 1 night, then transfer for the town and do the activities.
Best resort pool in ElNido area for swimming laps !
very beautiful place, staff are very helpful and pleasing”
This place is like paradise. The food is great. the people are very friendly, courteous and helpful. the view is breathtaking... the sea is always calm. but due to the transfers, it is not recommended for elderly with walking difficulty
This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed at. It truly is paradise. Tons of things to do. They also have island hopping tours (2 of them). Free boat service to the other side of the island to private beach which is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen and you will have the beach all to yourself. Great snorkeling. I was hesitant because I thought Miniloc would be better, but its not. This one is more private. The food is excellent and the staff TOTALLY goes out of their way. Can't go wrong.
memorable anniversary trip”
My hubby and I had the time of our lives at Lagen. Aside from the known fact that El Nido is breathtaking in itself, the staff's warm hospitality is most commendable too. They make us feel loved, important and pampered. Every detail to ensure our comfort is given attention. I especially loved that they dedicated a song for us during dinner and gave us an anniversary token too. I would love to come back to this heaven on earth.
A little private paradise”
it's a great place even for kids. i was worried that my younger brother would not find many things which which to enjoy himself, but i was glad that he did--a mini game room where he can play wii. on the other hand, my parents really enjoyed their morning hikes to the other side of the cove. personally, i loved that the resort offers pick-up with a speed boat on the other side--just one of the little things that shows how intuitive the service is. el nido is a great place to just lounge around, and, if you feel like it, to be active around. you can choose to stay and enjoy the beautiful view, or rent a boat for the day and island hop, scuba, snorkel, or kayak as much as you want. it caters to everyone. the only complaint i would have is the lack of food choices if you're dining a la carte. dinners are generally good, though. the restaurant really tries to mix it up every night, with some entertainment to boot.
el nido resort lagen was a experience i never expected, it's a place you have to see to believe. the views, serenity, food and activities made for the perfect island getaway. access to the other private beach clubs was a huge advantage of staying here. staff made sure our days were catered for as per our requests. will be back soon, and can't wait.
Where time stands still”
I stayed at both Lagen and Miniloc and adored both equally in different ways. Lagen is the more modern resort, and when we went, there were less people and much more quiet. You don't miss not having a television. You're so busy and tired from the activities during the day that a nice beer at the bar during happy hour and an afternoon nap is all you need to round up a well-spent day.
very beautiful island but limited options. the pool wasn't very clean. for a resort like this the breakfast end in 9am which is early for some.
Wonderful resort! The food is very good!
Wonderful place!The food is very good!
El Nido Lagen Island is a very peaceful and relaxing Sanctuary. The hike, beach, kayaking, paddleboard all just wonderful. The surrounding area is also amazing. Corals are so healthy and the environmental approach to El Nido Resorts is one that will make these islands last in years to come. The price is extravagant for Philippines standards and many activities ( like island hopping) and food are not included in basic room price. Advertised room price on outlets does not include taxes. The taxes, service charge and supplement package ( for all inclusive) really makes the daily rate very high. It is just important to know when you are looking at this type of resort. The Service was wonderful and employees take care of every need. It was a once in a life time trip and glad we chose Lagen Island. Next time , though I will probably look for a more economical resort if ever in El Nido.
Best vacation in paradise”
We loved our stay in a beautiful over the water hut! The every member we interacted with staff was exceptional! The food and drinks were delicious tasted like home cooking. The property was what defines paradise! The tour was well organized and small we had an amazing time meeting the people we toured in tour A. We will be back to stay longer soon!
Amazing customer service”
The customer service is superb, personal and attentive. The food is amazing! Breakfast buffet had great variety and was delicious! Anything on the menu is probably delish too; ordered the tropical pizza and carbonara on the menu, amazeballs!!! The resort is clean, well kept, organized; the staff is friendly, welcoming, and very helpful. The spa is clean, and the massages were amazing!!! All in all, 10/10, would definitely recommend!!!
It is on the expensive side considering the amenities/facilities available - for instance the gym was very small and the a/c was inadequate. But the staff customer service more than makes up for these 'shortcomings'. Food was fantastic and the staff would go out of their way to make you feel special and right at home. Had a fantastic and memorable time. Frank from the restaurant was particularly great as was our tour guide - Marlon. Too many to mention actually.
Tropical Paradise. Don't think twice before booking.”
We stayed here for 1 night (Water Cottage) but I would recommend at least 2 nights stay to capture the beauty of this magical island. Ask for room 109. Reaching there: Took a share taxi from PPS airport (6 hours drive) to port. A flight from Manila to El Nido airport is a better option and the resort will arrange a complimentary pick up. Pros: Extraordinary location, has a private beach. Sea cottages are built ON the lagoon which opens into the ocean. Complimentary snorkelling, kayaking, bird watching, forest hike, sunrise and sunset cruise. Diving, massages, and island tours can be paid for. Staff is very helpful and polite. Great biodiversity. Complimentary bottle of wine was delicious and really added to our honeymoon experience. Con: restaurant staff had no idea about the preparation of meals and couldn't answer simple qs regarding the meals (the server was unable to tell us the assortment of meats in the seafood pasta). If allergic please inform upfront. Otherwise it's perfect.
Heaven on earth ”
The resort is absolutely stunning. We went for the end part of our honeymoon and everything from arrival at airport to check in was smooth and super efficient. The boat ride was spectacularly scenic. The resort hosted and array of wildlife so never a dull moment even just walking around or sitting by the pool. The resident water monitor lizards and macaque monkeys were always hanging about !! Staff were amazing and the food was really good. The tours arranged by the hotel were fabulous. The snorkelling in particular was breathtaking. The corals and sea life were so beautiful and plentiful. The el nido groups of resorts are a fabulous get a way. Would highly recommend this place for both a peaceful and tranquil holiday for some days and action packed for others.
