Very nice place with extremely friendly and service oriented people, feels like home after a while ... not like a ressort though which we think is a good thing.
Have always a boat available to bring you to the well known or less known places (private beaches), which makes you independent from the standard tours. Super nice and experienced crews.
Very flexible in terms of arrival/departure times and also in case of unforeseen circumstances, for instance bad weather.
Terranova, the way it was set-up was exactly what I was looking for. It was like home. I feel very lucky to have found it because I figure there are not one like it in the region. During the 5 days we spent there we got very close to the staffs who were ever ready though not trained to render us service, making sure they answer to our every whim. It was heartening. The food was good, the boat rides, weather permitting were interesting.
The only drawback was our arrival. Our plane was delayed because of the storm that rendered travel by boat dangerous so we were driven passing by a dirt road with serious potholes in the dark for hours. I would not like to ever go through that again ever. But our final entry to the property under a full moon was so enchanting that for a moment we forgot what we just went through. Everything was excellent after that. We will not hesitate to come back again.
Can't believe the our best getaway this year has ended. I'm happy and sad at the same time! Sad that we had to leave this paradise and happy that we get to experience Palawan in the best way possible. All thanks to Terra Nova Peninsula!
The service we experience here was flawless. Staff were very kind and skilled and everyone felt like family. The resident dogs are one of my favorite parts about our stay. Foods served by the chef were always well-prepared and delicious! My partner ALWAYS finished everything on the plate! Everything!
Villas are luxurious and has a tropical design made from natural materials. Design and ambiance of Villa 1 is perfect for honeymooners. What really separates Terra Nova from other resorts is that this ALL-INCLUSIVE getaway also gives you a chance to give back and help the Liminangcong community through the Guy Mazzoni Foundation.
Can't express how much we love this place! Would recommend to everyone! You won't regret it!
This was one of our best vacations by far! My husband, my parents, and myself rented this villa as the last part of our vacation and I highly recommend Terra Nova. The accommodation was gorgeous! The staff, AMAZING! Everyone was so nice and accommodating. The food was delicious and the island hopping was so personalized. We had the time of our lives. Thank you so much, Terra Nova, for giving us an unforgettable experience. I definitely want to return :)
We spent 5 days is this paradisiac place with Guy and his team that treated us as family instead of guests, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and we had a lot of fun with them playing volleyball and table games.
Highly recommended for a family o small group of friends looking for confortable and really nice accommodation with excellent food and service, away from the crowded El Nido town, but very close to visit all the beautiful spots/places around El Nido. as we enjoyed on daily trips with their boat and dedicated crew.
The beauty of the place is beyond description!!!
Thanks a lot!!!
When my friend Guy Mazzoni told me in 2014, he was starting a foundation in Palawan, I must say that I was a bit skeptical at first. But then he sent me enthusiastic emails describing his "life dream". To create a small eco-friendly social for profit business to help educate local communities about hospitality services, eco-farming, protecting their environment, bringing books and computers to deprived local schools, and setting-up a real dispensary in Liminangcong close by village.
So I flew from Tokyo where I lived at the time and asked my dear friend Silvia Christmann, life and executive coach like me as well as yoga instructor, to join me from NYC, to coach the foundation team about project visualisation and Emotional Intelligence based leadership. Silvia, Guy and myself spent the most incredible soul searching 10 days with the Terra Nova team and this is when I decided to also get involved, and help the foundation grow.
So here we are today with 2 beautiful modern eco-villas (see our other listing here on TripAdvisor) that can accommodate a total of 10-12 adults and some kids in the most amazing place. When you come here, you are more than a guest, you become a guest-donator and like family. All your healthy and delicious meals, all your island hopping excursions on your own schedule and with your own boat are included in your night rate. You don't need to pay for anything else, to enjoy true luxury without other tourists, far form noisy crowds and just like if it was your own upscale residence on your private peninsula.
So come to Terra Nova El Nido Resort for a real off-the-grid vacation and rediscover yourself in the process...
