I stayed at Miniloc for three nights in May. I went there after three days at Pangulasian, where I could not stay longer, because it was full. It's true that the level of Pangulasian is much much higher (it is really HEAVEN), but there is also a huge price difference. Miniloc is still a very beautiful hotel! The island is...

This is our second time to visit Miniloc, and their commitment to excellence still holds true since our last visit three years ago. We stayed for 4D3N in one of their water cottages, and the morning view in our balcony is just amazing. The room is spotless, comfortable, and perfect for a romantic getaway. The package includes full board buffet...

I left Miniloc Island this morning after 3 nights and 3 full days on the island. I was on the fence when I booked here, mostly because of the price. Now I can’t imagine having made any other decision. This review is long because I’m going to cover everything I remember while it’s fresh but if you don’t want to...

Palawan being mom's hometown, we've always stayed there for a week or two during our childhood vacations (good old days). I've been to El Nido couple of times and have also been to this resort few times. The service here is impeccable! - professional, helpful, warm and friendly staffs.

If you're not the beach goer type then this place will win you over. Had intended going diving but didn't need to as it seem all the fish in the world is in this one place all swimming a couple of metres below the surface. Did some island hopping, each one was better than the next. Service second to none....

It was brilliant. We can't wait to go back! Due to the storms, we were unable to do any sight seeing whilst we stayed in town, so on our last day whilst staying at Miniloc, the activities staff did their best to show us the must see places whilst in El Nido. The food was amazing, we had private dining...

As we left the island, ALL the staff of this beautiful island resort stood on the end of the jetty, singing and waving goodbye until our boat was out of sight.

Surrounded by the simple beauty of nature, it just felt sooooooo relaxing. It is a place I dearly miss and wish I could go back to. I especially loved the experience of taking a boat to go everywhere and seeing sealife , private coves and other islands.

Palawan is a very unique place, we have had the fortune of traveling to many coastal towns and islands and this is now at the top of our list to return to. The rock formations or lime-stones, caves, lush vegetation, crystal clear and warm water make this place breathtakingly beautiful. The crew at El Nido was very welcoming, attentive to...
