"location. one would go to el nido, palawan for r&r and to get away from the hustle & bustle of work. this goal was met by el nido resorts, miniloc island. the hotel is situated in a secluded cove that can only be reached by an outrigger boat from el nido town. it's peaceful, serene and quiet. a perfect getaway from the stress of the city. the beachfront the miniloc island is fantastic! awesome really! just bring your snorkel and walk a few steps from the shore and you're immediately in the beautiful marine world with nemo and his friends. different kinds of fishes can already be seen from the resort, no need to do some island hopping though that one is also something fun to do. we were informed by one of our guides that miniloc island used to be a dive site years ago. hence, the vast variety of fish and sea life living in its area. food. amazing! we booked for the "fullboard" option which meant that buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner were included in our fee and man did our bellies get full! it was a gastronomical treat! the fruits were always fresh. there were many varieties of food to choose from. the hotel has to work on shifting their grill area though. the smoke enters the dining area & annoys the guests. we had to move to a different area of the resto, away from the smoke. staff. the staff in miniloc resorts were nice, friendly and they always respected your privacy. had a hard time communicating through email with their representative from the manila office, though. i have received confirmation about our room booking from the manila office but not about the boat pick up. i had to call a couple of their contact numbers before i was finally able to speak with somebody from the resort in el nido to ask about our boat transfer. it would be great if the resort had a 24-hour hotline or online assistance service. overall, we enjoyed our stay. probably because my husband & i are outdoor enthusiasts. we were happy but not ecstatic.

"Going to El Nido itself is a one of a kind experience. But to stay in El Nido Resorts Lagen Island while you're there will make it a truly once in a lifetime moment. The staff will go well above and beyond your expectations. They'll know you by name, and they'll do whatever it takes to make your stay there a memorable one. They have an Activities officer that will help you plan and maximize your stay in El Nido, and they'll customize your activities according to your preferences. The hotel manager is an active participant; he doesn't just sit in an office. He looks for ways to enrich each of the hotel guests' experiences. If you're going to go to El Nido, don't short-change your experience by staying at another hotel that's less expensive. As the idiom goes, "you get what you pay for", but in the case of El Nido Resorts Lagen Island, you will get more than you'd ever expect. We'll go back there as soon as we can just to re-experience the beautiful moment that El Nido Resorts helped us have."

"We have been to other resorts in El Nido, but never had that quality meals or mixed drinks. From the moment we met the French GM, and the Spanish F&B manager, I was sure that we would not be disappointed. The drinks are truly special and two of them we had never experienced before. For every meal we chose between the fish, crabs or langoustines, which are presented caught fresh from the ocean on a platter for selection. The resort has a policy of never offering as fresh anything older than the day it was caught. The location is very special, as was the day tour on their own boat, which is far and away the very best we have seen anywhere in El Nido: very comfortable, not overcrowded as all the other ones you see, personalized and with an excellent crew and food. All four of us also used the top notch massage services at a unique spot on the island. The accomodation is good, but not excellent, and the facilities are hard to maintain. Overall a top experience, well worth the cost."

"We made the booking last minute (since we got scammed by a travel agency so be cautious when getting deals from agencies). I saw Matinloc and I must say the photos did stun me which made me decide to book. I have only heard of Lagen and Miniloc so I gave this one a try. The trip to El Nido was long but bearable since they have good roads already. When we arrived at the El Nido Hotel (partner resort of Matinloc) we were welcomed by the staff and asked us to wait for the boat transfer to arrive. It was rainy season when we went there but they really took care of our luggages (black plastic bags) and make sure they don't get wet. We took a boat going to the Matinloc Island and when we got there, we were welcomed by their warm staff. CHECK IN was a breeze and we got the premium suite (beach front above the reception). Their FOOD was awesome as well. They do not offer alcoholic beverages though but good thing is that you can ask their staff to buy it from the mainland. Just check with the front desk on the boat schedules. For the TOURS, i suggest you look outside the resort. There are a lot of groups offering tour packages in El Nido which normally ranges from 1,200 to 1,500 (with gear and food as well). Their packages are quite expensive. On the resort activities, they have kayaking and snorkeling gears for free. :) ROOMS are clean and really comfortable. They change the bed sheets everyday and the hotel amenities are just amazing. Literally you don't have anything to worry about. Overall our stay was awesome! Me and my husband did enjoy our quitet time together and would definitely come back with the family. "

"This is a charming, island-style hotel at the north end of El Nido Beach. The room was well-appointed, grounds were immaculate, pool was inviting, location was within walking distance to shops and restaurants in El Nido Town, and staff was welcoming and helpful. That said, I have to add that wifi is available only in the reception area during business hours. When available, it is painfully slow and loses connectivity to the point of dropping posts. Also, they are in the process of building a high-rise addition which, from drawings, does not appear to be island-style. Although adding to capacity, I'm afraid it will destroy the island vibe that was so peaceful and relaxing. Time will tell."
