Our Fil-Aussie family booked at the last minute 2 days prior to our trip and found Qi to be very unique compared to the bare bones backpacker and the mid-range accomodations in El Nido. We were glad that we chose it because it offers a very relaxing atmosphere right out the front of our family cottage. We were out all...

I spent 4 days at the beginning of May, if you're looking to enjoy and get emotional with the nature, this is your place. Located in the east coast of the Island of Palawan in El Nido, one hour driven from it, in the middle of the jungle with all the magnificent views. One of the maintained hotel I've ever...

Very modern and luxurious resort in a much more peaceful part of the island. Highly recommended if you’re a diver and fancy to do some diving in uncharted waters. Vary good food and attentive staff make an overall experience 5/5 .

Definitely enjoyed our stay in Qi Palawan. The food is to die for. All the food that we tried for 3 days were amazing. There is 3g/4g in the area so you would have to connect to the wifi at the restaurant. It was ok for us since the internet is fast and we realized that we came there to...

I never wondered that I'll experienced this kind of relaxation way up north El Nido. Qi Palawan really exceeded my expectation of vacation. Their structures, designs, services, foods, and even rest room were all in perfections. If you're looking for a "Exquisite place to stay" Qi palawan is the right place to be, and also, i almost forgot, the owner...

“Don't know if there is a bad villa as they are all near the beach, have a/c, & have views of the ocean. We were down almost at the end of the group of villas & it was peaceful and beautiful and a nice size room with small bath in room & outdoor shower/vanity sink area outside in back of room. I think there is one villa that is larger & has bigger accommodations but I never saw it. It is worth the drive of 50+ minutes from El Nido town to go to this beautiful place and enjoy the slower pace & beauty that is there!!!”

“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.”
