Amazing place, "last" paradise in the wold!! ;) If you like camping, you`re going to love this place. And even that you`re not a big fan of camping, you can still stay easily couple of nights here. So quiet and peaceful place. You can just stay in a hammock whit a good book or go to explore islands nearby. Snorkeling was an amazing as well. Definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to see something else than a fancy room in a fancy hotel! :D Tnx Karel!!

Thank you for your nice visit. :) Just letting you know that we just finished converting the big hut into like a home, with a picnic table, two permanent hammocks and its own electricity and lighting, for those who like some more comfort and prefer to avoid the tents.

Don't think I have ever been more back to basic than this. Loved it. Last week i slept in a tent, learned how to make a fire and open coconuts with a machete. Enjoyed reading my book from a hammock. ^_^ The snorkeling is really nice. The sunsets are crazy beautiful. If the touristy ABCD 'island hopping tours' don't appeal to you, don't hop on them. Live on one;)

Stunning island, the clearest of water, a plethora of sea treats, a plethora of travelers, living on an empty beach, cleansing the body, serenity far from chaos. A complete soul charging and spirit lifting place that trumps the big names and dull claims. This is a place like no other. A must do.

Thanks for your great visit Hugo and can't wait for you to come back! Was great partying with you. Converted the big hut into a home if you'd like more comfort and bring a date. :)

Beautiful Island, in the middle of no where, surrounded by several other island, great for snorkelling and exploring! Feels like you are in paradise, so unreal! Golden beaches, cooking on fire, camping in the jungle - perfect! Currently, no showers or toilet facilities but it's part of the experience. You can also get tasty fresh fish from the locals! Would recommend 100%!

Thanks for your lovely visit Elina. Got a porcelain toilet now, although not flush and need to bring in water with bucket, on cement septic tank with little hut. Currently building a shower but already got system to collect rain water, otherwise there is the water well at the back of the property. :)

A little hard to get to but really worth it! Be aware that it is very basic living and you provide for yourself, but opening coconuts on the beach and watching the sunset around the campfire that your dinner is being cooked on, makes up for the hole in the ground. Karel is a very nice and interesting guy, you'll enjoy your time with him! He has quite a few tents with mattresses along the beach. Most of them have shade and little "front yards". Feels private and is very pretty and charming. The beach is beautiful and the water amazingly clear! Awesome snorkelling around the island! He can organise a boat for 1500 for you to take you island hopping and snorkelling or rent out his masks for 50Pesos. Make sure to buy LOTS of food in San Miguel, and some veggies in San Fernando as they have more diversity there. Guests brining food onto the island is the only way of stocking up and Karel will buy all veggies off you. If you want things like tea, special spices, snacks, juice, bread etc make sure to bring it. We also got some drinking water even though he has water there. Best to buy things at the big shop between the bakery/pharmacy and the BRC hotel, Dorys is quite expensive. How to get there: From the tiny town of San Fernando/ Dipnay (2 hours from El Nido) I took the boat of some fishermen to San Miguel. Takes 4/5 hours. The ferry did not run, which happens a lot apparently, so either make sure there is one by asking around in El Nido beforehand or just go and hope that someone is willing to take you. If you rent your own boat it's 5000 Pesos unless someone is going that way anyways and so I only paid 500. The ferry usually costs 700 Pesos and the minivan to the coastal town 200. The boat dropped me off at Dorys in San Miguel, from where Karel had organised another boat to pick me up for 400. Make sure to text him before so he can arrange a boat, otherwise the locals want around 600 Pesos. All in all an amazing stay and I will be coming back!

I stayed five days at the place (at the new place in Dimancal Island as the owner had to move several months ago). It is lovely and I can really recommend it to nature loving people who want to escape the crowds. We slept in tents and cooked our food over open fire. The food depends on what people bring as the next store is 40 minutes away by boat - so if you want to eat something special (like chocolate ;-)) make sure you bring enough of it. If you bring food or other stuff for building the resort the owner will refund you the money you spent - he is a really honest guy!

We spent 3 nights in this beautiful place in pattoyo island. We slept in a tent and interact with the only family living in the area. Everybody living in this beach are genuinely friendly and warmhearted. They came every once in a while to check if we were ok or if we had food. The beach its beautiful and we were the only "tourist" staying there at the time. We cooked our own food because the owner was away for few days. The tents were cozy. The only minus we found its that some days were very windy. But the day that was calm the snorkel was great. I recommend this place to nature lovers and off the beaten track backpackers

Had the good fortune to visit this place as part of a tour package offered by islandhoppinginthephilippines.com. All three places were off the beaten track, not inundated by tourists, but this one took the cake. Lovely snorkeling in the area, can't wait to see how it develops.
