First of all, I have to say the people on the island are super friendly and very welcoming. They were like family and we had the best time on the island :) A little about our first day: There were issues with my flight from Manila and couldn't get to Puerto Princesa for another six hours but luckily my partner...

After reviewing this resort on a constant basis via TA and staying in Overlooking El Nido the week before, I said to my family this will either be heaven or hell! It is, was it is and that is heaven. The transfers went smoothly and May (owner) was there to meet us on the island by name, with a refreshing...

If you are looking for quite, peaceful, with untouched beaches, options for snorkeling and diving - this is the place for you. A bit pricey, but full board and the food is nice. Also good opportunity to meet new people. Accommodations are very basic, but nicely located just meters to the ocean with comfy hammocks to relax and read.

This is the best place to stay if you're in Roxas. The island is so peaceful, you'll feel you have the island all to yourself. My family stayed for 2 nights and we totally enjoyed every minute of it. The staff are all amazing! They go out of their way to make your stay perfect. The food is equally great!...

Beautiful island in the hands of an incompetent management! Bathroom very dirty, bad food and very small portions, breakfast ridiculous, the fruit is canned in a tropical island??? Our remonstrances the manager refuses to listen and did not find her. Coming here means ruining his vacation

We have been to coco loco 3 times before the new owners took over. Unfortunately we did not even make it to the resort as the resort kept us waiting 4 hours with our children for a boat and then offered a boat that was beyond dangerous - we have lived in Asia for over 15 years and have been...
