My wife and I recently visited all of the properties of El Nido Resorts. Each resort was amazing and had something unique to offer. Miniloc Island Resort offers great snorkeling with giant jack fish, delectable cuisine, and unparalleled service. The resort manager Mark Guerrero aka Big Mac is a tremendous asset to the Miniloc Island Resort for so many reasons....

This place is just sensational, the accommodation is superb and the meals are incredible. I know that sounds like a bunch of cliches, but that's just the way Miniloc Island is. The staff are super friendly and very attentive, especially in the restaurant. We were met by a group of staff giving us a musical introduction to the island, this...

Wow! Wow! Wow! Unbelievable! This was one great, one-of-a-kind experience! It's so worth it! We loved the place, it's home away from home, especially so, that the staff and crew are all so loving, respectful, accommodating, hospitable, & so concerned with our safety and security. They wouldn't answer our querries/requests with a NO, but rather, would present to you something...

We paddle boarded, kayaked, scuba dived, snorkeled, swam, got massages, and relaxed a ton. The location is excellent because you can go to the big and small lagoons by kayak easily and...

Am shocked to hear about the review about no life vests.. I had the exact opposite experience about guest safety..
