Me and my wife celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary at Miniloc and it's definitely one for the books. Staff are knowledgable and very accomodating. And you know what? Their food is amaaaaazzziiing! You can also arrange an exclusive candle light dinner for an intimate experience on your special occassions. My wife was very happy all throughout our vacation. Special thanks to the General Manager who they call "BigMac" for giving above and beyond service for us. We will definitely be back soon. More power to your team! 🖤

It’s my nth visit to Miniloc and yet I never tire of its beauty and warmth. The islands are unbelievably amazing and the staff treat you just like family. The service is superb, from the tour guides and the resort team. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, I love hanging out in the bar! Food is great and drinks are good. Considering the price is all in (full board and lodging), I’d say it’s value for money. I would definitely go back. It is my second home!

Younger sister & family had been here, and strongly recommended it. Its easy to see WHY they said that Miniloc is their favorite Palawan resort by far. The place is gorgeous, the coral & snorkeling areas as breathtaking but the best thing about this place is the STAFF. From the greeting you get, to the meals, to the quick responses & the final goodbye, the staff here are incredible & is the reason it's more fun in the Philippines! We tried snorkeling close by, but staff mentioned we would see more fish & better coral outside the main beach area. A few minutes later, a staff named Gold came by with a floaty so we could hang on as he swam us out to the deeper ends. We saw cone shaped coral, barracuda, the elusive sea turtle, and all kinds of fish that the whole trip took our breath away. Gold also took us to the Small Lagoon (take the early trip to avoid the crowd), & remedial kayak lessons, Andy gave us a very detailed & incredible tour of the Big Lagoon (saw the Palawan brown heron), & Kuya G took us out kayaking & snorkeling again at Entalula Beach. For families, kids will LOVE feeding the jackfish, going on the tours & town hopping. The remarkable thing abt this place is that it has it's own water treatment system, & they emphasize green policies. They even supply you with a lot of biodegradable soap & body wash so as not to affect the wildlife or plants. In the evening, we watched the Palawan macaque families walk about & had a massage. They also support local industries like bag weaving, etc. Thank you, Andy, Gold, Kuya G & staff for a GREAT first vacation. We will be BACK!

As my vacation is about to end, I’m so glad I was able to spent it here in Miniloc Island Resort. Out of all the island resorts of El Nido Resorts, I have to admit that Miniloc has by far the best food to offer. Literally you feast like a king! Since my last visit here at Miniloc which was before the renovation, the rooms and facilities are now all nicely improved. The newly added swimming pool is my favorite because of it’s cool design. The employees are well accommodative and friendly as expected. Finally, Miniloc is known being near the lagoons so having a lagoons tour is a must! Best regards to the resort manager!

We previously stayed in Lagen so we were looking forward to staying in the newly renovated Miniloc Island resort. We love the place --- it has a small beach, a snorkeling place, a new pool and nice rooms (we got a beachfront villa). The food is good but I personally like the food from Lagen more. Service is great --- everyone's smiling and helpful. This resort is definitely worth the price!

We had a great weekend with family and friends. Food is very good as expected. You must try their cheese sticks! It’s perfect with happy hour drinks by the pool. Great service indeed! We were lucky to have a great weather and island hopping was awesome. SEA you again Miniloc and thank you for making our weekend wonderful. Thank you Bigmac and his Miniloc All Stars team!

Beautiful is an understatement for this place. I have to admit that I expected highly of this place, and yet they have exceeded them! The activities they offer are wonderful! They showcase the beauty of the place and the different islands that we were able to visit. Part of the tour was to visit other islands under El Nido Resorts, which is also made us experience their beauty. Also, they promote the preservation of the islands and the world underneath the water. The food is not just good, but they are damn delicious! I had to say, one of the most overwhelming things about Miniloc Island Resort is the staff. They welcome their guests with their warm hearts. They made us feel like we're home and we're part of their family. The tour guides shared their knowledge of the places we visited. Special thanks to kuya Andy for going the extra mile to assist us (and he sure takes great photos!). On a personal note, he took part in overcoming my fear of being in the water (snorkelling, swimming with huge jackfishes, etc.). Also to sir Big Mac, the resort manager, for making sure we are always having a great time. Same goes for all the other staff! They definitely made our stay unforgettable. All the resorts under El Nido Resorts have their own unique beauty that make them a certainly incomparable paradise!

This is by far my new favorite destination in Palawan. I just love everything the resort offers. It is perfectly situated in the heart of Bacuit Bay and made it easy for a beginner like myself to snorkel and to access the nearby attractions. I admire how they manage to combine luxury and sustainable tourism (truly one of a kind and something that we as travelers should support). The resort is also worth every penny because the rate already includes the meals, the boat transfers and the water activities. (drinks not included) The minute we arrived in the island, we were already approached by their staff to orient us and to plan the activities during our stay. The food selection is also impressive and my favorite is the salad bar. The activities were well-thought and made us connect deeply with the nature. (We were able to see different species of fishes, corals and other plants&animals.)   They also have the best staff and I could really feel the sincerity in their service. (Andy is a great guide and made sure we get to see the breathtaking marine life of El Nido.) They welcomed us with open arms and treated us with utmost compassion that made us feel at home. Miniloc Staff- thank you for showing us true Filipino values while we are there. This is a vacation that we’ll remember forever! We are already planning for our next trip!

Stayed here with my family last May 2019. Everything was absolutely perfect. The guide during our boat trasfer from the airport to the resort was so informative. He named almost all the islands we've passed through. Impressive! Their rooms are spacious enough for a family of 4. I love our room, it was like a loft type villa and I couldn't go for a pee because my bed is such a luxury. Haha. I salute our guide(forgive me I forgot your name) for taking care, anticipating all our needs and making our trip such a memorable one. The resort facilities is one of the best! I had hilot from the spa and it was a top notch! The restaurant offers a wide selection of delicious foods. I tried all and it never disappoint me. Thanks to all the staff of Miniloc Island Resort for bringing us to the other dimension :) Kudos to Mac for giving us the 5 star 5 diamond resort experience! We will definitely comeback!

Incredible trip and breathtaking scenery and location. No pictures can do it the justice it deserves. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. The food and service was great but I would have preferred to see more vegan options ( I.e plant based meats/ burgers etc). Best place I’ve ever been. Can’t recommend it enough👍
