Let me begin by saying that this place is excatly how it looks in the photos and is as stunning in real life. We were taken in by the breathtaking views and the quality of the rooms and the service. We went here as two couples and had the owners villa for a few days and the rooms were spacious and luxurious-nestled away from the main resort with lots of greenery around us. The villa is built on the ocean so you can see the sea life from the villa balcony. Both the rooms and bathrooms were spacious and great. The food options included Filipino food so were happy about that. The overall food & cocktail options were plenty as you cant go elsewhere - the nearest mainland is 30minutes away. But we didn't complain as we could snorkel, dive and use the spa for massages. By the way, in the spa, when you lay on the massage table - there is a glass flooring so you can see fishes swim by under you whilst relaxing. The service was great too - the staff was available and friendly and prompt. We didn't mention the 2 birthdays that we were celebrating but they themselves found out from our passports and arranged a celebration for us. We really appreciated our stay here and absolutely recommend it to all who would like to explore the ocean and the stunning sights of the Philippines with good food, great service and some amazing villas with spectacular views.

We spent 5 days in this resort and had a wonderful time. The staff is incredibly nice, beach villa was amazing all with a very nice food offer. We really enjoyed the six diving adventures with Norien and good advices from Aurelio. We saw turtles, sharks and all kind of nice fishes and corals. The lagoons are a obligated visit and also relaxing at the infinity pool. Worth the visit!

I don’t even know where to start, Cauayan is amazing! We came here for our 10 day honeymoon and we couldn’t have been more happy. The staff are all lovely, the food is delicious, the views are incredible. Such a relaxed atmosphere yet still luxurious, we loved it. We had an amazing massage and saw a baby shark during. We went on the sunset cruise and both island hopping boat trips, these were all brilliant! We also had a private dinner on the beach which was such a pretty set up. We would highly recommend staying here, it’s out of this world - just stunning.

THE PLACE IS BEST SUITED FOR FAMILIES AND COUPLES...the food is delicious...the view was amazing.. the staff was sooooo FRIENDLY and accommodating...The PLACE is a haven...Its a PARADISE...Perfectly design to relax & chill...what more could i ask for..........

Very beautiful resort which has a great facilities and variety of activities. Wonderful beach view and amazing sunset view platform. Everything was perfect but only the internet signals were very low as well as the WiFi. The atmosphere was magnificent and unforgettable.

My husband and I were island hopping in the Philippines and this was our last stop. Hotel will send staff to pick-up from airport and transfer to resort's boat which will take you to the beautiful cove! We had a over-the-water bungalow (#1) at the end, and it was glorious! Beautiful sunrise view, privacy, clean, comfortable, good ac, good Wifi. Friendly staff, great food. Lovely spa with view into the water below! Excellent diving. Certainly glad we saved the best for last!

We arrived this Island and we greeted by their reception staff which they mentioned what to do in the island during our stay and it was very helpful to us. The rooms are ok which very resorts feel and their staff is kind and helpful. Restaurant is great which they offer catch of the day which they bought from local fisherman as they said. Must try the Island hopping and make sure you will be guided by Jimmy he so informative.

Perfect getaway for the family. Very safe and quiet, exactly what we are looking for a perfect moment to bond with kids and also highly recommended for newly wed couples. Breakfast was generously served, fruits and salad were being refilled every 15mins but if you are an early riser, trekking activity is waiting for you then you can catch the breakfast full of varieties. Noticed that there were some villa maintenance going on but it doesn't bother us much, I guess it's a preparation for high season. WiFi is good at business center area and good enough to communicate whatsaap and messenger from the room. Services were excellent and definitely we will come back on Christmas!

It was a disgusting experience: 1. You can’t go out of the island, only for check out or at the same time of the departure of the other guests. And no other transfers are allowed. You are caught! 2. Very poor breakfast. In the buffet you can only eat some types of fruits, salad and some sweets. In the menu, limited options. 3. The service is not a five star service: The welcome is poor (as if you would arrive at a hostel), there are no sign to indicate when you want your villa made up (so it can be at any time), some external staff complain you about the hotel (I can’t say Resort), no water when you sit down in the pool, 45 minutes waiting for 1 pizza, etc. 4. The boat captain cancelled the departure of the boat during 2 hours and a half in our return from El Nido to the Hotel just to rest(with pour rain included). 5. Wi-fi: you only can send text message (no photos, no audio). No Instagram, of course no videos, no apps in general. You have to pay 30$ per day and per device to access to mobile data. When I buy in Gucci, the bag is included. 6. 0 privacity. The villas are too close and all the spaces are connected and around the pool, so everybody has to see you at the pool while eating. 7. Excessive price in food and tours (more than 4 times the prices at the best places in El Nido). With no option to scape (no board available). 8. Lack of entertainment : no shows, always the same food, only one bar, no parties, ... 9. The level of water of te beach just covers your ankle and it is rocky. 10. Low quality of the bed: not king size, just two joined mattress. If you want a really good experience, please, avoid this hotel, they don’t know the meaning of five stars.

We had a wonderful time..they knew our names, celebrated our birthdays, went snorkeling, trekking to see the sunset, private island hoping tour. This resort is very peaceful, I wish they had other activities at night. I would recommend improving the wifi so guests can communicate with front desk to order room service or ask questions. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. Overall a great stay ..thank you Jeff and team!
