Highly Recommended! Excellent Serice
This resort is one of the best in PH! They have excellent service, better service than other more expensive resorts in Palawan. The place is just amazing and food is super yummy. They also offer wide array of activitites for adventurous and not so adventurous guests, like me.
Great travel bubble package and experience!
So thankful we were able to experience the travel bubble package, inclusive of flights, accommodations, full board meals, and tours. We felt safe and taken care of from the private hangar, to the transfers, and the resort itself--where they were strict about having fixed (small) tour groups and times (you can opt not to join if you prefer to just stay at the resort); using masks outside of the room and in common areas; pool and facility reservations; and access to the rooms (staff aren't allowed to enter, and therefore, no cleaning/turn-down service, in an effort to keep both the guests and staff safe). Also appreciated that you had an option to take your meals in bento boxes in your room or in a controlled buffet setup in the dining area or by the pool--either way there was sooo much food, we never went hungry! There were some dishes that could've been tastier, and the rooms could use some updating (we stayed in the water cottage--best views!) but the friendly and efficient service definitely more than made up for it. The staff is up right up there with the El Nido sunset in my list of favorite parts of the trip. Thanks again, LIR!
Perfect and Safe Travel Bubble
We were really looking for a family getaway after a year of lockdown but also wary of the ongoing pandemic. El Nido Resorts was the perfect choice because they have mastered the travel bubble concept, given everyone on the bubble is tested, arrives, and leaves the island at the same time, no one else enters the island while you're there. You depart from a private hangar which eliminates potential exposure in a public airport. Everyone on the plane was tested and is heading to the same resort. Once you get there, all the staff have been tested and live on the island. Nonetheless, everyone wore a mask, practiced social distancing and other hygiene practices. El Nido was beautiful and empty! We had all the lagoons, beaches, and islands to ourselves. This is the best time to go.
Perfect family getaway
We were 6 families and they planned everything for us. From booking the seats on air swift, to all the transfers, meals outdoors, island and lagoon tours. We stayed at the beachfront villas which had the perfect view. Just to get away and wake up to the sea was a treat for us. They don't do housekeeping services , so they had a broom and dustpan in the room for us to use. Towels and trash cans were left outside for them to replenish.. strict Covid protocols ...The staff were more than helpful and hospitable. In the other resorts, renting a boat and booking the tours would be a separate cost but with El Nido Lagen everything was inclusive - including all meals. They assigned us life vests from the start of the trip which we used for the entire 4 days. We all had to bring our own tumblers to refill drinking water as they don't give out plastic bottles to protect the environment. Over all it was the perfect trip!! Must visit the caves, the big and small lagoons,, Miniloc (for snorkeling) and snake island which the dads loved the most as they sat around enjoyed the cold beer that the resort brought. . We haven't even been home 24 hours and we already want to go back! Shout out to the entire staff of ElNido lagen Resort! Thank you for that memorable trip!!!
First time to stay in el nido. We booked the water cottage for our family. Our party of more than 30 people (travel bubble) were very happy. From the terminal to the resort, the staff were very professional, helpful, and followed all the safety guidelines. The rooms were clean and spacious ( no cleaning during the stay due to guidelines), activities and island hoping were fun and well organized, the food delicious and plentiful. Would definitely come back and stay again.
