      relaxing, exciting, comfortable

      It was actually a big delight that i was booked in Apulit. The only complaint I have is time limit for your transport towards your hotel. From port of taytay, its a 50 min boat ride which is free till 3pm. Anything after that till 5PM you rent the whole boat (5K). When you consider the proximity of taytay from puerto princesa and the flights available in all airlines, you are bound to miss the free ride (4 hours away form puerto or 3 and half if you skip lunch or breaks). You either stay a night in puerto and travel day after or take the chartered flights from manila which is P11K plus for RT. For couples its worth it,but in groups, a RT flight from manila to puerto can go as low as P3k to P6k. A group of 7 (my family) , its practical to fly by passenger airlines. As for the hotel, miniloc and all el nido resorts properties (there are 4) have one thing in common, exclusivity. Apulit is the only resort in the municipality of taytay and all its spots are catered by the resort alone (that I know of). Whereas in El nido, everyone has free access to neighboring islands. Anyone checked in the town of El Nido who books a private boat will have the same access to all the islands in el nido. You don’t have this in Apulit as you don't compete for meager space in El Nido Islands.. At lunch, it was like a parking mall of small boats as all of the guides had the same spot for lunch. Theres also a rappel site which was scary not for the height but make a slip and you'll have a cut as the stones were razor sharp. do it on a sunset and you'll have breathtaking pictures that no one has. The food was superb. for 500 USD divided by 3 in a room with unlimited seafood meal at night and all meals included, you can't go wrong. Theres even a happy hour pre-dinner at the bar. I would have preferred another night there. As for El nido, I rather be in Coron or Apulit again than be in El nido as it is just one big hype.

      excellent service on paradise island”

      many activities included, friendly and helpful staff

      we stayed 5 days at the el nido apulit resort and absolutely loved our experience. we flew in by iti via taytay (which we highly recommend instead of traveling overland from puerto princesa) and from the git picked up for a boat ride to the island. the entire transport was very well arranged and arriving at the resort's pier the entire staff welcomed us. the island itself is very small and stunningly beautiful. the cottages, especially the bathrooms, are very small, but nicely decorated and the balconies have lounge chairs which are ideal to enjoy the ocean view in private or watch baby sharks (harmless) swimming underneath your cottage. the food was just perfect, asian and western food buffet with shrimps galore and filipino specialities like halo-halo for dessert. we were lucky with the weather, so could join many of the activities on offer. angel, the activities manager, kindly and proactively checked up on what we might be interested in doing. we most enjoyed the island hopping and snorkeling tours with our very well informed guides. next to this we visited some caves on the backside of the island, went kayaking around apulit in the early morning, rappelled/abseiled 50 m from the cross, tried surfing and my husband went for trips with the resorts hobie cat a couple of times. every staff member is very well trained in the activity they are supervising as well as local fauna and flora and will be able to answer many of your questions. activities can be scheduled to your convenience and everything is included in the package. we would suggest to also take half a day off from activities to enjoy some relaxation time and the amazing view from the infinity pool.

      A hidden Gem in Philippines”

      All that goes with an Eco-Tourism destination

      Apulit Island Resort is the perfect getaway if you are looking for a private, relaxing, personal resort experience. My husband and I chose a 3 night/4 day package and were thoroughly impressed. From the moment we made contact with the resort staff (Taytay airport) we were treated with exceptional service. As we approached the island the staff were there to greet us, complete with refreshing drinks, local songs and bright smiles. For the rest of our stay we found the staff to be exceptional, always greeting us and most of the time calling us by name. We felt that they were genuinely happy to have us there and that they were happy to serve us in whatever way would make our stay more comfortable. The food was delicious. We found it to be well prepared, complete with a uniquely personal touch. Breakfast omelets, fried rice, fresh seafood, fruits and juices and a fantastic variety – overall there were delicious choices for every meal, every day. We also thoroughly enjoyed the activities available for the guests; fish feeding, snorkeling, island hopping, caving, private beach picnics, sailing. It was wonderful that all activities were included with our stay so we didn’t feel like we always had to decide ‘should we pay for this or that activity?’ Overall, we would definitely recommend Apulit Resort if you are looking for a quiet, island getaway. We will be recommending this place to all of our overseas guests!

      Best part of Palawan”

      Apulit Island is the perfect amount resort and adventure. It is a mission to get there (1.5 hr drive from El Nido and then 1.5 hr boat ride over choppy water when we went in Nov 2018 - price only included if you have Airswift flight each way) but it is well worth it. The island and surrounding area are in pristine shape. The water under the cottages is a breeding ground for blacktip reef sharks (harmless and so cute), the coral is the most alive I have seen in the world, and they offer a bunch of legitimately great activities included in the price (boats to private islands for insane snorkeling, rappelling that is hard and not just a tourist trap, informative nature walks..). The staff are very nice and helpful - special shout out to Jerek the grill master who was very attentive and made amazing food and to Maxine the envrionmentalist who taught us all about the islands flora and fauna. Wifi worked really well - best in all of the Philippines. Definitely stay for at least 2 nights!

      El Nido Resort, Apulit Island is by far one of the best resort we have stayed at. The staff are overly hospitable, down to remembering your name. All the included facilities were amazing. We went scuba diving (I do not know how to swim at all - but I love the water) Our instructor Ting made me feel safe and comfortable throughout the whole scuba dive experience. He held my hand and did all the adjustments to the tanks. As i completely had no idea. The receptionist Pau was super cute and very kind. All the staff were knowledgeable about the island and the environment and all had a strong connection which is what I felt made the experience more unique. I love their care for the world. Would definitely stay here again! Loved it!!! 😊😊😊
