The only place to stay in El Nido
If you wrote down a list of exactly what you were looking for in a hotel/resort in El Nido, Pangulasian ticks all the boxes. The key thing that makes all the difference is its proximity to the main attractions, Big Lagoon, Small Lagoon, etc. So when I left the resort in a speed boat at 7am, the tourists from the main island do not arrive until 9am or 10am. I had small lagoon all to myself for a full hour and no one showed up. I also enjoyed secret lagoon for a full hour before anyone showed up. These are some of the most beautiful places in the world, and you don't want them ruined with the sight of florescent kayaks and life vests. El Nido has put restrictions on the number of people that can visit each site, and the combination of sites that can be visited on the same day. So you will need to stay here at least 3 nights as you can't go to big and small lagoon on the same day. Pangulasian is a spacious beautiful resort on its own private island. The staff are friendly, the rooms are relaxing, the views are heavenly, it really is paradise. Like the Maldives but with views of nature and more greenery. The resort also has a small trail to a view point where you can watch the beautiful El Nido sunrise and sunset. Finally if you're an early bird, you can go snorkeling right in front of the resort and see sharks. Not just one small shark from a distance. I saw 7 different sharks right in front of me. Don't worry they are not dangerous, and fear you more than you fear them.

My family and I had an amazing vacation at Pangulasian Resort. The natural beauty of the island and the resort are second to none. The staff at the resort are warm and attentive, and the day spa is divine. A wide range of water activities are available, as well as a breathtaking private beach. The only area that requires improvement is the food quality (the cocktails were fantastic, though). I can’t wait to return!

10/10 Exceptional

A truly unique place and exactly as gorgeous as seen in the images. Get a beach villa. There are tons of activities provided by the hotel to explore nearby lagoons, and islands. I cannot recommend it enough. We stayed three days and I would have loved to extend. We also came during what should be the rainy season, but it also meant enjoying cooler weather and this is the tropics so no such thing as cold! The hotel says that you need to arrange your bookings with them for connecting boats but in fact its so so well organized from the instant you book your ticket with Air Swift to El Nido airport. Air Swift is a great airline and El Nido airport is wonderful clean and slick resort airport. It's a smooth and VIP service. They take your bags, give you a sticker and place you in the lounge and you're pampered all the way until you arrive to a very hospitable staff reception. The only fault in this beautiful, romantic and enjoyable spot of a hotel is that the food was not that good, breakfast was fine but I suffered for lunch and dinner options. It was really barely acceptable and very pricey and for a remote location it really needs to get better especially for that price.
