One word to describe our recent trip to El Nido Resorts Palawan - Lagen Island Resort, PERFECT! Everything is perfect, from arrival to the Lio Airport, we were brought to Lagen thru a speedboat. We were warmly greeted and welcomed by the staff! Since we had the earliest flight, fortunately with available room, we were allowed to check in and rest before the activities. Buffet breakfast was superb! Thanks to Ms. Bernadette and Mr. Jing who helped us arrange the activities for our 4-day trip. Thanks to Jake Lindo, our tour guide who is very knowledgeable, patient and helpful. Very persistent in teaching us to snorkle and kayak. We enjoyed the island hopping, kayaking in the Big and Small Lagoon, snorkeling and Jack fish feeding at Miniloc Island, Sunrise Cruise, Private lunch at Entalula Island. We were amazed by the emerald-green lagoon, prestine water, that one can view different kinds of fish. We enjoyed walking in the powdery white sand especially in Entalula Island. Thanks to Chef Carlos, Jun and entire staff for the great buffet, wide choices of salads, fresh fruits, desserts and viands. Fresh and grilled seafood are mouth watering and super delicious! If you wish to stay at Lagen, Lagen has complete amenities, pool, board games, billiards, gym, spa, playroom for kids, etc. Forest hiking and trekking is also available. Thanks to Ayala Corp management for helping protect and preserve the environment, for prohibiting use of plastics,and also promoting local employment. Indeed, these are noble and admirable endeavors which should be emulated by others. Lastly, thanks to the entire Lagen staff for making our vacation truly memorable and perfect!

Our 4-day beach adventure at Lagen Island Resort is the best and most memorable trip I have experienced in my life. Truly we experienced a world class service and amenities in this hotel. Congratulations to the management and the entire staff! To Chef Carlos, Bernadette, Ging, to all the Lagen Island Resort staff, we will never forget your sincerity in providing great service to all of us. From the welcome song and dance when we arrived, during mealtime, for room service, for arranging our daily activities. Your efficient and prompt service is very admirable. To Jack Lindo who served as our tour guide for the entire stay, he is very knowledgeable and articulate, very helpful, such a nice person! Again, to Chef Carlos for arranging special dinner for us, super delicious dishes, many choices of grilled seafood, pork, beef, salads, fresh fruits and desserts! For guests with big appetite, for vegans, for healthy eaters, you will love the food choices. The hotel can arrange outdoor activities like kayaking, snorkeling, fish feeding, private lunch at Entalula Island, or island hopping at Miniloc Island. Indeed, endless activities and endless happy moments at Lagen! We will be forever grateful for this wonderful experience!

A refreshing drink when you get off your boat that took you from the airport straight to the island to be welcomed by a staff serenade and a fish woven lay around your neck. After the briefing your just in time for your first full lunch buffet experience of “Filipino Cuisine Greats” and of course my favourite, perfectly grilled “Very Fresh Fish”. Don’t go looking for bird’s nest soup or lobsters, Eco Friendly means they will never serve you anything that had gone scarce or rare. Had a majestic experience of the “Sunset Between 2 Islands” offshore on a speedboat while sipping wine and nibbling cheese. When the sun had finally set and all goes dark, time to look up in the black sky (not exactly) to gaze upon the stars and yes, the Milky Way. Review your knowledge of the constellations and you will have a blast. Next morning is a date with our star friend at 5:30am. On board our “Uber” speedboat, offshore once again, witness behind the mountainous islands in the horizon... Sunrise!!! After pictures and shots have been taken, a side trip to an island all to ourselves except for 3 dogs that inhabited the place and our own Chef and Butler to serve us Breakfast by the Beach!!! Surely the best way to start a tan. Spent the whole day on the pump boat to visit another owned property, and other islands. We went snorkelling, kayaking, visiting secret lagoons, swam in clear blue waters. Nature at its wondrous best! Dinner this evening was a surprise. Again, the shuttle boat takes us to a dark secluded cove on the other side of the island where only small glittering lights were visible. Only to find out as we came ashore that they were candles lit to guide us to our dinner table by the beach. Yes, we had our own Chef and Butler. Gorgeous dinner! Our last day in the morning was spent hiking 45 minutes trough the forest back trail ending up in the cove where we had dinner the night before. They had a couple of kayaks ready for us to paddle back to our resort while witnessing the rock formations and crevices where the birds live. Worthwhile morning exercise. There’s more to share, not enough time, not enough space. An island is just an island. The amazing wonders of nature is abundant all over if you know where to look. But what really makes good memories and a lasting impression in both the heart and mind of anyone, are the people that enjoy their work and make things happen for you. This is a resort island of “cans” and the people are more than willing to extend or go beyond to see that smile on your face, or theirs. I’m just heart broken that like many very good things, they somehow have to come to an end. It’s hard to say goodbye. To the wonderful staff and people of Lagen, you made that mark in our hearts and that memory engraved in our minds. We love you all and your island too! God bless till we meet again.

I didn't have much time in the Phillipines, we flew into El Nido in the afternoon and had a day and a half at the beach. They were very attentive at the airport, picked us right up, took us on a cart to the boat directly, all very seamless. On the boat we met the chef Carlos, who was incredibly friendly. The island is obviously gorgeous. Everythign there was very modern and clean and first rate. We got the island tours we wanted for the next day very easily. The pool is lovely, the food was absolutely delicious, the chef was really great and came out to meet us again and prepare a special dish. There was very pretty music at dinner, the first night relaxing, the second night was live, and very pretty, soft music. The tours were awesome, and we were able to get back very safely and easily to the airport. I hope to come back.

My girlfriend and I stayed 3 nights at the beautiful Lagen Island resort, during the slow season in September. We lucked out and had beautiful weather every day. The waters around the island are very pristine, very clear and amazing shades of turquoise when the sun is shining. We took advantage of the all inclusive package. The tours we went on were excellently guided. The meals were buffet style, and always had plenty of options and good variety over the course of three days. The hospitality of the staff was exceptional, with every member always making you feel welcome at the resort. Jen, the activities coordinator was amazing at working with us, always flexible with us and other guests as she helped manage our daily events. Sid at the front office was always pleasant and helpful with any requests during our stay. Melqui, who works the front desk at Apulit resort, also was wonderful helping us arrange our bookings and choosing one of the 4 amazing El Nido Resort properties. I would love to stay again at Lagen, or any of the other available El Nido Resorts again in the future. Thanks so much again to all the staff for exceptional service and hospitality!

Wow. Never in my life came across that level of hospitality, AMAZING views, and great food! The resort is isolated from anything else so it's a great opportunity to clear the mind. They also offer tons of activities. We came for one night on our honeymoon and enjoyed every minute of it! Surely we'll visit again.

Lagen, I first saw it only through photos. I remember when my sisters went there for the first time, I wasn't able to come because my daughter was just a newborn at that time. This time I was able to bring my daughter with me to this place. It was an absolute paradise! My daughter really enjoyed it over there as she just loves the water! The service was top notch and I really think the staff went over the top in their provision of service just to make sure we are happy during our stay. Everyday was an experience of a lifetime. My heartfelt gratitude goes to everyone at alagen island for everything they did for us. Our heart felt thanks to Ms. Jen Sir John and chef Carlos and to our tour guide Marlon for an extraordinary trip.

It was my first time going to. El Nido, Palawan and I must say that I was blown away by the beauty of the place. May sisters always told me of how wonderful and relaxing it was over there as they’ve been to Lagen twice already. I always wondered why they kept coming back but now I know why. Apart from its beauty, the warm hospitality by all the staff made me feel very much at home. Everything from the rooms to the foods and all outdoor activities were superb. I really enjoyed my stay at Lagen and I would definitely comeback multiple times given the chance to do so...... thank you to all the staff specially to Mr. John, Chef Carlos, Ms. Jen and our tour guide Marlon. It was definitely unforgettable to me and my family.

This is my 3rd time visiting the island and people asked... why don't you check other places for vacation? They were probably wondering why we keep coming back to this island. The reason is so simple.... our stay has always been wonderful. Hospitality at it's best. The dinner prepared for us at the sandbar was a once in a lifetime experience. The event was just perfect. Thanks to Chef Carlos Sir John Mam Jen and the rest of Lagen staff for making us feel at home and treating us like we are family. To our tour guide Marlon for always having a productive trip and also for making us feel safe everytime we go out for tour. Looking forward for another vacation with you guys. Thanks Lagen
