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.
An unforgetable experience”
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.
perfect place to be isolated from the noisy urban life”
when we compare the rate, condition, service quaility with the other resorts in Maldives or Bali, you will feel satifsfied! much cheaper but much greater. I miss all nice people in Vellago already.
Best place in El Nido!”
Place is perfect and staff really helpful and friendly! if you want a quiet place and romantic dinner by the beach watching sunset this is your place. Your room opens to a balcony with a magnificent view of El Nido beach. Snorkeling right by the beach!
The team is unbelievable ! Very kind and fun. They have special attention for you. The beach is beautiful but maybe too much crowded by the island hopping of El Nido. The food is very good also. I would recommande twice this place during the low saison. Nicolas and Alexandra
Wonderful vue ! Splendid atmosphere”
Nice accommodations (eco resort ) , nice and very helpful personnel. We enjoyed our stay and we surely recommend. Great food. Awesome vue and landscape. Price could be lower and adjusted considering lack of electrical power during the day. Beds could be bigger. In general we love it and we were very pleased.
Best choice for a relaxing 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!
Truly amazing experience. Perfect location, accommodation and staff. Rather expensive but given the experience this was worth the extra money. We have done quite some weekends and holodays in SE Asia and this was the best so far. Thanks to all the staff.
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.
A very memorable place”
It has an outstanding view of the sea, they have their own boat, very nice and accommodating staffs, but since they are on an island, the electricity power is only 6pm to 6am and no TV, but you wont need it anyway.
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!
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.
Chilled getaway in paradise”
Booked Vellago based on previous reviews and the stay was amazing. There are only 4 rooms so the staff are very personal and attentive to your needs. The room and view is perfect and the set up for evening meal changed every night. Breakfast delivered to your terrace was a great touch.
Idyllic private beach hideaway”
The resort is just 5 rooms tucked away on the end of one of El Nido's most beautiful beaches. Spending the day lazing on your balcony or down at the quiet beach bar mixed with swimming in the warm, crystal clear waters in front will leave you in a total state of bliss. Perfect!
Will come back..”
A really nice place, secluded, the rooms are great if you and your partner enjoy each other then the time spent here will be great. The beach and the view are amazing the staff is over the top helpful. Will return in the future the next time I go to el nido.
There were thieves, the end of the meal to the room to find the bag opened, should be a health waiter, no hundreds of dollars.
Nice view, nice room, extremely beautiful view. Food is great, staffs are very friendly and nice. Highly recommended
Staff was very welcoming and accommodating to every need. The food was great along with private romantic dining at night. Breakfast being served right on the balcony with your specific choice also for special diets. There was just a few things that could be different. The bathroom has no privacy if your significant other needs to use the restroom only option is to go outside on the balcony. We found the tours to be cheaper in El nido especially for the private speed boat I recommend Tour C the most for snorkeling depending on your taste. We didnt find it too bad that there is no electricity throughout the day just open the room up and the wind keeps you cool. Wifi was good for music but didnt get any luck for streaming videos on nights we stayed in. During the day tourist come in and flood the scene but they usually stick to the other side of the beach but it didnt bother us. Overall it was great experience and would suggest for couples to stay here for a private romantic getaway.
Wow, what a spot!! One of the best beaches in El Nido, amazing villas, delicious food and all the staff felt like family by the time I left.
Amazing in everyway”
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.
