Private Island Resort!
Amazing and super private resort. Great service!

8/10 Very good

Property itself is beautiful and the beach is gorgeous. Staff was very attentive. We had an issue with our bathroom and they came to try to fix immediately. The included breakfast was excellent, great selection. Overall though the pricing for food and tours was fairly expensive comparative to the rest of the area. Also, we had to pay for a lot of extras. For example we needed a boat ride to get back into town and were charged an extra 4000 pesos for one way ride. Additionally, we asked if we could bring towels from hotel on an excursion we booked independently and we were told they would have to charge us to take the towel (not a deposit, but actually charge us to use the towels). Overall, we had a great time though did notice these minor things that weren't expecting which is why I would give the experience 4/5 instead of 5/5.

10/10 Exceptional

A high-standard, luxurious resort.
Everything fantastic. The house reef is dead BUT there are daily sharks and many sea turtles, plus I even saw a baby manta ray! You can almost see them from your beach villa. Beach villa was wonderful, absolutely luxurious (outdoor and sunken indoor shower!). Definitely a luxury resort. Prices for the external boat tours to match accordingly. Food generally very good. Staff very professional and friendly. We had a wonderful time, thank you. One negative comment is I thought the massages were incredibly expensive. Certainly cheaper than the western equivalents, but, for example, double the price vs two similar island luxury resorts we also visited; these prices should be reduced. I would view the provision of massages less of a profit centre and more a service. Other than that, we were very happy. Please provide mosquito repellent for free, that would be a nice touch.

The property was excellent and we really enjoyed the quietness. The staff was amazing and the food was pretty good. Wished the menu was rotating though, but the fish was excellent and very fresh. We loved how it wasn't crowded and the resort didn't play loud annoying music. We will definitely be back!

10/10 Exceptional

We stayed here for our honeymoon. This resort has fantastic service, an incredible spa, excellent food, and a quiet atmosphere. The only downside is that it’s a 20-minute boat ride from El Nido town (with no boat service after sunset) so if you want nightlife this is not a good choice. The private island-hopping tour is a bit expensive but it was the highlight of our stay (along with the spa.)
