Loved our 6 day stay here - beautiful scenery and felt very looked after. We would love to return one day! Loved the hike up to the viewing platform and the island never felt crowded. We were lucky enough to see some beautiful sunsets - truly spectacular. Only small issues were the drinks were very slow to arrive. A simple...

Everything continues to be worth coming back to despite the VERY hefty price tag especially during the peak season. The only area that needs improvement is front desk service in terms of how they respond to customer requests and answer your queries. This is the only reason I rated them a 4. Front desk staff are the primary face to...

El Nido Resorts are basically three islands: Miniloc, Lagen, and the latest, maybe the best, is Pangalusian Island Resort. The manager, Mark Cerqueda looks after all your needs. Many activities to be done: snorkeling, swimming at the beach, or the pool, kayaking, visiting the twin lagoons, feeding the fish, playing pool, reading a book, whatever! We were a big group,...

Pangulasian is the most exclusive one out of 4 islands. The island is super amazing. First class service. Complimentary activities were all worth the price of staying there. We reserved the pool villa. The room had everything you need! We love how the island is private and not chaotic. Definitely relaxing. We visited Apulit & Pangulasian. Can't wait to go...

Booking is flawless through their own website. They start looking after you from the airport in Manila all the way to check out. The resort is just beautiful, staff very attentive. All needs catered. Activities are included and the visit to the small and big lagoon was a highlight. We stayed at the canopy villa as liked the idea of...

This is our second trip to el nido. Our first one was about 5 years ago when we stayed at another el nido resorts property, miniloc. At the manila terminal 4,el nido resorts have their own private lounge where they offer drinks and some snacks. It's good that they have this because the manila domestic airport can be chaotic and...

We stayed for five nights and in our opinion the perfect timeline to stay here. It's a beautiful island and we were looked after impeccably - it's not refined luxury like the Maldives; more a rough round the edges diamond, not quite the full international 5 star perfection, but therein lies the charm. The staff are not over the top...

Difficult to get to, and need to book 6 months in advance for the connecting flights from Manila, local airline Air Swift has limited seats. Once you get here, the amazing location, lagoon, turquoise sea, wildlife and attentive staff is really worth it. Not bling bling like other 5 star resorts, very good taste rooms and well thought out activities.

This hotel is really beautiful. If you are looking for a private island experience, then you can't go wrong with Pangalusian. This is the most expensive hotel we have ever stayed in and as it was over CNY, it was even more expensive than usual. However, we thought we only live once so splashed out for 2 nights. We stayed...
