One of the best island i visited. if you love peace and serenity , this is the place for you. In the morning there are few people come and visit to see the island mostly from the tour expedition and from afternoon till night wow its very quiet and relaxing. Away from the noise and crowded place in elnido town. The beach in front of the resort is great. The food they serve is super generous and really tasty. The Family staffs are amazing and very warm and welcoming and super helpful. Was there and no much people checked inn i guess only our room and another room is occupied. Electricity is just at night. I dont wanna go but unfortunately i pre booked everything in that vacation. would love to go back..

Excellent time spent on the island. We emailed to request pick up from the airport and the mini bus was waiting when we landed to take us to the waters edge to get on the boat across to the island. As we pulled up on the island it was WOW ... beautiful soft white sand, turquoise sea just perfect. The accommodation is very basic and the showers even more so..... there was no way I was going to strip off in a few sticks of bamboo with a scarf weaved through ! and no WiFi but it didn’t matter as this place is a chance to completely unwind. Watch the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. With no light pollution the sky is so clear I have never seen so many stars simply beautiful. There are only around 10 huts in the camp and everyone is so friendly. Food all very tasty and freshly cooked. Lots of grilled fish at lunch and dinner and pancakes for breakfast. A very enjoyable few days on the island.

Wow! This place is out of this world. We didn’t think it was real as it has no reviews and so cheap but it’s unbelievable! Stayed here 2 nights with my husband, booked last minute. We got picked up from our hotel in El Nido and dropped off on return all included in the booking price. The beach is basically a private beach - clear waters, a really cool ship reck a 5 min snorkel away with lots of fish, a raft to sunbath on in the sea at the front of the rooms. Run by a very lovely family, so friendly and provided us with lots of coconut juice! Volleyball, badminton and snorkel equipment all for free. Delicious food with big portions and lovely breakfast. Rooms very basic just a mattress and a mosquito net but didn’t bother us and we slept fine - no WiFi which is a bonus to switch off from the world. Black skies at night to star gaze. Electricity in the evenings when you want it. Lovely outdoor showers and very clean proper toilets. Also had a bonfire one night which was lovely. This place is insane and I don’t know how it has no reviews so book now before it becomes populated with tourists!! You’ll most likely have the best 2 days of your lives like we did

So apologies if this review is a bit gushy but my wife and I have just spent 2 days here and it’s the first place on our travels so far where we were so sad to leave! First of all - it’s real. We booked online and were quite sceptical that there were no reviews! Literally nothing - I was worried it didn’t exist... It’s real and it’s incredible. So for not a huge amount of money you will get collected from El Nido then driven to the north of the island before the husband & wife team running the place pick you up in your own boat! Dreamy. Then a short hop across the water and you are literally in paradise. Very basic huts (with nets) are directly on the beach. Ours was no more than 4m from the high tide... There’s a beach bar with reasonably priced food (huge portions) and drinks. They have free volleyball/badminton on the sand court. Free snorkels (no fins) and a frigging floating bamboo raft a hundred yards out into the perfect blue sea just off the sandy white beach! Then there are all the reefs & the wreck (a 1970’s cargo boat no more than 2m under max at high tide). The family who run the place are lovely and despite the slight lack of English we got on fine! They’re so lovely with plenty of free coconuts that the husband will climb the tree for you!! People from nearby accommodation as well as the odd tour boat come to the beach in front of Backpackers. There’s no contest! Just be warned the rooms are basic (but the toilets and showers so super modern and clean). Bring bug spray so you can stay out and see the Milky Way and all the stars after the electricity goes out at 9pm. Wish we could go back - It’s the slice of island paradise you’ve read about but never been able to find. Thanks Chris & Nat
