First, the resort is very far from the airport. It takes you roughly an hour to go there. Nowhere near the attractions and action. Its a very secluded place, this is a place where you hide. Beware, there were sightings of rats and a lot of sandflies. Spend your money somewhere else. Im glad we transferred. On the way out,...

Wow! Is there such thing as a 6 star resort? Because Qi Palawan is simply the Best! The place is so quaint, peaceful, secluded, beautiful setting and I could not stop smiling when I first arrived. The service was warm, friendly, attentive and top notch! Love the staff! The food there just tasted like home cooking and absolutely delicious! The...

If you're looking for some quiet time it's definitely the place to be. The location is far from el nido about 50 minutes drive. The food was good and the staffs are very friendly and accommodating. However it can be a little bit pricey. If you want to do island hopping in El nido proper it will cost you 4...

This is a nice option to visit the islands on the east part of Palawan, although a little pricey for what it is. The hotel is lost on a nice beach with no other construction/ business around. The beach is infested with sand flies so don´t expect to lay down on the sand. Upon your arrival you are given a...

Patina has put together a small piece of paradise. I don't know what El Nido was like before. Lots of discussion about how tourist have begun to ruin the wild charm of this area but this place is holding on to it partly because it's hidden a 45 minute drive north of the main town and partly because the intent...

I spent 4 days at Qi Palawan and loved the experience. A last minute decision due to cancelled plans I came here to get away from the noise and activity of ELNido. The first thing you notice is the peaceful isolation and attention to your comfort. The manager and all staff are just so friendly, kind and ever willing to...

For us was very nice to have the opportunity to scape from our busy lifestyle in the city. The resort offer us everything we need it for a 3 days unwind, beautiful rooms and gardens and refreshing and surprisingly good food. Service is on the 5* level hotels anywhere in the Philippines that we have been. Accommodating but not intrusive....

We stayed here for 3nights and loved every minute of it. The hosts were great and really helpful and friendly. The Huts are well decorated and the outdoor showers are impressive. What's not to like when showering under the stars?! We arrived pretty tired after long flights and transfers and were greeted at the airport by one of the owners....

“No real room / villa tips. We had plenty of space and everything we needed. Hot water was finicky but in most of El Nido, there is no hot water at all, so we weren't complaining.”
