Amazing place for honeymoon”
Even though the communication before arrival was not pleasant, the whole time at the hotel was nice. A few things to highlight— 1. It’s a good spot for sunrise 2. Kayaking and snorkeling were fun activity 3. Two helpers accompanied us for hiking, which was cool. 4. They change menu between lunch and dinner.

Overall Experience is Majestic”
It was a majestic experience to sum it up. From the moment they pick us in ElNido to the resort, we were really impressed. The staff were friendly, the terrace suite room were beautiful, the sunrise and sunset were lovely. We also did hill trekking and kayaking to their sand bar beach. It was awesome. Thank you matinloc resort for the wonderful experience.

Beautiful”
Beautiful location, beautiful resort, perfect for a couple of days. We stayed for 4 days and it was lovely. The only criticism we have is the cleaning of the comum areas where the rooms are located, which is a bit poor considering the money we were paying and they should probably review the quality of their pizzas that were flooded with cheese making it a bit too... much. Other that that, it’s beautiful and the coral around the island is the most alive we’ve seen in our trip ( el Nido and Bohol before). I would definitely go back anytime.

Great overall... except the dining experience needs much improvement!”
The resort is beautiful overall. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The beach front villa is what made the trip worthwhile... located right in front of the sand and marvelous beach; and conveniently located next to all of the resort's facilities... well worth the extra money, rather than being in a room where you would have to walk several flights of stairs/steps. My only negative critique is the execution of the restaurant. There is only one restaurant option for the entire resort, and the execution of the chef is quite poor for a resort of this caliber, and fails in comparison with other resorts of this type of exclusivity. I would expect higher attention to detail in terms of the chef's offerings. Steaks and lobsters were prepared with incorrect doneness, as well as unacceptable waiting times for items being served. The restaurant must be reminded that it needs to be graded on a much higher standard if it wants to be an "international" resort.

Wonderful Stay”
My husband and I loved our stay in Matinloc! We felt the hospitality of the team starting from the boat transfer/pick up at el nido. The welcome at the pier of the resort was amazing as well! We weren’t expecting to be checked in early so we were really pleased when they informed us that we can proceed to our room. My husband asked me to mention how great the food was. Their adobo and Hawaiian Pizza are out of this world :) We loved the relaxing ambiance of the resort but moreover, the kind and helpful staff -always smiling! Thanks to the whole Matinloc team: the boat, front office, housekeeping, f&b teams - kudos to you all! Hope to see you all again!

Only great things to say about the staff and the resort. It was a great place to relax after a long trip from the states, and a great way to begin our vacation in Asia!!!

- Food not bad but nothing special... (our best meal was on a one day island hopping tour that was cooked on the tinny boat, was amazing.) - Slow internet, very few tv channels, long boat ride to location.... if food was better would of made a big difference, but price way to expensive for product delivered...

Secluded paradise”
If you want to get away from it all in El Nido then this is the place to do it. On a small secluded beach, with another private beach a five minute canoe ride away you can’t get much more secluded. The main beach is not big, but big enough for you to get away from your fellow travellers. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and spread out over the well kept gardens and cliff faces (you can even stay in a tree house). Food is good, without being breathtaking delicious. We spent two days there which was probably enough as the seclusion may get to some after a while (the island is serviced by a boat that comes 2-3 times a day, but otherwise you are relaxing in a pretty small area). The price you pay for seclusion is steep, but possibly if you’re staying here price is probably not an issue. The staff are friendly and helpful, albeit the check in process was a little hopeless. After being greeted enthusiastically by the staff we spent 30 minutes waiting for our room.

Worth every penny”
Courteous staves stood out the most. Food are a bit pricey, but justifiable because the location is far from the mainland. You will definitely enjoy kayaking around the area, that is if the waves are calm.

Everything about this hotel is amazing, from the moment they pick you up, the best staff in the hotel, amazing place, amazing beach, good breakfast, nice rooms. If you have the budget, go to Matinloc for at least 3 days and you will love it. Make sure you do the tours in the town, because in the hotel they are about 3 times more expensive.

Great Private Island Resort”
Great Private island resort! BYOB, bring your own beer! This resort does not sell alcohol but it is very easy to purchase in El Nido for very cheap. Be sure to know the boat schedule and time of your arrival so that you can catch a daily boat transfer instead of having to pay for private transfer. Nice small beach to hang out by the water or cool off in one of the two pools. They also offer private and group tours to all the islands around. The Lagoon tour was spectacular! Staff was very friendly and the food was good! Did not like that the bathroom in our room didn't have walls all the way up to the ceiling.

Can improve the facilities ”
You need to climb over 100 steps to get to the mountain villas which was not very nice as we were traveling with our 3 year old, he hotel considered that and upgraded us to the beach villas which was beautiful. More variety on food would be nice since it’s limited menu gets repetitive. We missed our flight to go to our next destination Puerto Princessa due to delay in getting to the airport, the hotel was responsible enough and offered a free land transfer from elnido to PPS.

This resort is by far the best place I have ever been. The rooms were beautiful. The entire resort was clean and breathtaking. The staff was extremely nice and helped with whatever was needed. My wife and I came here for our honeymoon and it was perfect. We also participated in the Lagoon Island Hopping tour and that was the highlight of our trip. The staff for the tour was awesome and the food they prepared and cooked fresh was delicious. I highly recommend this resort and we will definitely be coming back again.

Beautiful property”
Very nice staff, beautiful property all around, the transportation is tough due to boats needing to be scheduled for other passengers to be free, otherwise, unless it’s your scheduled in and out time, you will need to pay ~$100 for a boat ride. Also, be sure to BYOB as they do not have alcohol on the premise. They are happy to store it for you though in their fridge in the main area. If you know about those two things up front, it’ll be a much better experience for anyone.

We were in the Signature Suite (room 204) and the view is the most amazing view we ever had in a hotel room. This resort is really high-end. The staff is very nice, friendly and attentive! Location is in the east of the island so you will not see the amazing sunsets the Philippines has to offer.. Also, notice the resort is child friendly (we didn’t know that prior) and that no alcohol is served in the resort (BYOB)
