          Magical hidden island paradise”
          The location of this place is unreal! Go stay here if u want to be away from crowds and on a remote island resort. We stayed in the beach bungalows. Great size and better value for money than the waterbungalow. U are right in between big lagoon and secret lagoon. So I can paddle out there in your own without the crowds early in the morning. Only recommendation I'll give is to update SUP's as they not in good working condition. Food was ok, rather give less quantity and more quality. We will definitely be back!

          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.

          No problem with excursions, kayak, snorkeling
          there is a nice restaurant with a good choice, great service. the very friendly staff every day take you in a boat to different islands and coral areas for sunbathing, swimming and snorkeling, it is included in your staying, as well as a perfect buffet lunch on any islands during your daily trip. you can take a canoe at any time free of charge and visit the nearest small bays and beaches. there is no place for swimming at miniloc beach, no a swimming pool. the coral area surrounds the island-resort. in december 2012 they started making a stairs for going down from the pier for swimming above the coral. you can see different corals, fish and turtle close by miniloc and neighboring islands. there is no the sun after 3p.m on miniloc’s territory. each room has a mini-bar and air conditioner, a bath room has all amenities and a body lotion. there is no a kettle and tea, coffee bags in the room. it is worth to spend money for staying there because of nature.

          Pros. Rooms are antiquely designed, clean and roomy. Staffs are so kind and lovely. Every meal was so sincerely prepared. There's wonderful beach and sea right infront of your room where you can just jump in if you feel like it and swim with 1000 kinds of different species of sea creatures. Cons. No Tv but not needed. No pool but not desperately needed (it would be perfect if they had it but it's okay!) Have to order expensive drinks but not too expensive considering that you are ordering from a Hotel.

          the private reefs and the other elnido resorts available to visit.
          i loved milinoc and believe that this is the better one to stay at the time we did. there is another elnido resort currently being established at the time, which looked amazing. but was more expensive than lagen. we were glad we stayed at milinoc rather than lagen. i'm sure the rooms at lagen would be great, but the reefs and lagoons around milinoc were far better. we did not go on the group tours - just got a boat driver to drop us off with a kayak and snorkelling gear and they would pick us up at whatever time we requested. was fantastic. one morning we went at 6am before any of the tours got there - was fantastic. food: ok (we did al carte) rooms: beach front was good, but regretted not booking the water cottages, which were smaller and not as nice...but so but so much more appealing and better positioned.

          we stayed at miniloc resort in the garden cottage for 3 nights for our honeymoon in el nido. the resort was in the perfect setting, right infront a back drop of beautiful limestone cliffs. our room was right on the beach, it was clean with an island flare. the lagoon tour and entalula beach club are definitely must sees. the only complaint we have at the resort is probably the food. i would recommend bringing some snacks if possible.

          Nice environment and many activities to choose from. However, need to request for cold and hot water from the hotel staff as tap water is not drinkable. This could be quite annoying as you may need to drink plenty of water in such hot weather. Or else, you need to buy bottle water from the hotel.

          Just got back from four nights at Miniloc August 2009. What an incredible vacation! The staff at El Nido was world class, an amazing bunch of people. They made sure our activities were planned for the entire week, and made sure we were totally happy at all times. The food was very good, diving excellent, snorkeling incredible. The scenary is breathtaking, unlike anything I have ever seen, and I am well traveled. Great resort to go as a couple or family. I might bring a laptop next time, as there are no TVs in the room.

          Overrated! Poor customer service! Amenities rundown and outdated! Terrible experience!!”
          Airswift staff were excellent and prepared with umbrellas. Miniloc staff had 1 umbrella to accommodate a group of 9 travellers which slowed down the transfer to the resort. Unprepared knowing it was raining. The resort is too expensive for the amenities or lack of. OVERRATED!! Rooms are old and run down. Doors are heavy and require effort to open. Floors were slippery and a trip hazard. We put food in the fridge for our young kids however they spoiled because the fridge did not work. Bathroom was smelly. Towels were thin and had holes in them. Standard toiletries provided by other hotels were not provided in Miniloc. No slippers or robes. The variety of food options at the buffets were subpar. They were an island but had no coconut juice to offer. Dinner was late 7pm. The kids were allowed to eat at 6:30 but we were not allowed to eat til 7pm. We complained and no formal apology was offered. WORST customer service! (Exception of Mike and Joven) Highly NOT recommended!
