        Great food! Great and helpful people! A great place to relax and do nothing. Various fish when snorkeling for its location at big lagoon! Never try to circle the island with kayaking because it’s too exhausted. We tried 1.5 hrs but haven’t reached half of the island~

        Perched Boutique Hotel”

        Close enough to the city, but far enough away for great views and access to the other islands. The room and the view was amazing. A hot shower would have been nice. The food was simple but good, a bit pricey. The tours they offer are very expensive, compared to booking directly with a tour agency. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would come back.

        Definitely a place to recommend. We stayed at Vellago to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and our engagement and from staff to the owner to everyone who crossed our paths, it seemed everything went above and beyond to make our time at special. We got the honeymoon suite and it was just a beautiful room with a stunning view. To top it all, I can only say: best meals we had in the Philippines.

        ROMANTIC PARADISE. Secluded . It really is PARADISE . White sand beach located directly in front of the resort also. Excellent Security. The food was fantastic as was Maria the Manager. Transport was arranged excellently, and I highly recommend the excursions to the islands that they provide ( private) worth every penny. The only downside to the Vellagio resort which is not their fault, is the island suffers from very poor wifi and has brownouts on a daily basis.

        This hotel is the best in Palawan! It all exceeded my expectations.”

        When we got there around 6pm, they gave us welcome drinks... The moment we came to the hotel after the 5min boat ride from town, I have already felt their warmness, kindness, and excitement. Everybody is just smiling and greeting us. (I was super excited and I felt their excitement too for having us and made me feel even more excited). I have been meticuluos and demanding when it comes to hotel and services but this... Even before i say a word, have provided me just what we need...The drinks and food are for a first class. We took the honeymoon suite and indeed!!!!! No words can explain how nice it is in person. Everything is just so perfect in this hotel. They gave us complimentary wines, dessert, fruits, breakfast always served in our balcony with the perfect set-up, they surprised us with dinner candle light set up, our bed are being made up with petals, they printed our pictures with their sweet thank u messages...everything is just full of surprises.. I cant believe it. It feels like im in a timeless dream when i was in here. The waves of the sea is just to calming and relaxing. When u wake up in the morning all you is are the islands of elnido, the birds, the trees, perfect!! They provided us everything that we need. They guided us from the beginning to the end. And really for the first time, i was being hurt when i have no choice but to leave as u see allt he staff waving their hand goodbye to you as u ride your boat... They made me feel like i am not just a guest but a family..... Kudos to the owner and staff... I have been to such hotels in the philippines and this tops it all up. Im trully proud and blessed to be a filipino..... If there is such this as a 10 star hotel because of the service i would rate this 10!

        Loving It!”

        Vellago is the best! The location is very romantic and the views are exceptional! We spent a lot of time on the balcony just listening to the waves crashing and we were amazed to see fireflies ( technically, firefly coz it was just a lone bug). The place is away from the noise and the hustle and bustle of the main town. Perfect for couples! The staff are excellent! They really go out of their way to cater to our needs. Kudos to Kristina, Bong and the rest of the guys! The food? Man, the food is great! It may be pricier but let me tell you, whoever is the chef? Never let him/her go! The food is absolutely delish and the portions are generous. My love went ga-ga over their fries. Me...i just about died and went to heaven over their bacon wrapped shrimps. Breakfast is the bomb! Overall, i couldnt have asked for a better weekend getaway.

        We cancelled our Maldives trip and decided to go to El Nido instead. I just read reviews about this resort and we were extremely happy we chose Vellago! The place is perfect for people like us who want a private and quite place. Food is very delicious! We love how the staff treated us. We were like VIPs, treated like their friend/family. I love how they put effort to check on our rooms always to fix the beddings and refill the water, coffee, tea, etc. Breakfast is served on our balconies and we have a romantic dinner by the beach every night! I will definitely go back soon! I already miss the breakfast by the balcony while enjoying the view and the beautiful sunset as well. I also miss their dogs - Brownie and Bella! Thank you, Vellago! Thank you, Jay and Herwin! Thumbs up to you guys!

        This is definitely one of the most beautiful hotels to stay at. It's a cozy retreat from everyday life in amazing El Nido. Be warned power only runs during the night for the rooms, but this for us was really nice because you get to disconnect from your cellphone and PC. Every night you can have dinner in your balcony or in a very romantic setting on the beach. AND every morning they bring your breakfast to your balcony so you don't even have to leave your very luxurious room. This was an amazing experience for us, it's a little bit pricey but it's worth it.
