It takes half a day to get to from Singapore with an hour of turbo propellers from Manila to El Nido, then a 60-min winding drive to the jetty where another 45-min speed boat ride awaits before the guests reach their destination and are greeted by the traditional performance by the staff. The resort was built by a Japanese over...

We spent a week in Apulit in the large overwater bungalows as a family of 4. My first recommendation is to fly into Apulit. We flew into Puerto Princesa and took a private van (4 hours) to Taytay. The flight was late the and van driver drove like a race car driver to get us to the dock on time....

Buffet offers a wide selection, many are seafoods, my favorite; customer service is impeccable and you can truly feel the warmth and sincerity of the staff's hospitality; the room, which rests on stilts, has a balcony which opens up to the vast sea; the entire place is simply relaxing and awesome. I couldn't help singing praises for this resort. I...

We stayed there for 2 nights 3 days. All activities are included in the packages and we really had a great time snorkeling, visiting the beautiful Isla Blanca, rappeling and using the stand up paddles and other facilities made available to us. We went for the sunset cruise but I do not recommend it if you are staying in the...

Let me tell you the good things first. The view is unbeatable, everywhere you look is breathtaking. The food is good but not exceptional. The staff is the best!

I am not sure that my review can do this resort justice because I really believe that there are very few places like it.
