It was great in terms of being in a quiet, remote, and safe area enjoying great views of the clear water, limestone cliffs, and exclusive beaches. Their services were personalized and excellent! I highly, highly recommend this place.

I could still recall (last September 5) the moment I saw Miniloc, I was in love. In love with the island's beauty. It was amazingly beautiful and breathtaking. Remember the saying "love at first sight?", oh yes it's real! :) I don't know what's with that part of Miniloc Island where the water cottages are situated but I could just...

Went to Miniloc last year with my husband and 2 kids, stayed at ocean view villa. Miniloc offers a full board package which we got and food did not disappoint. We thought with being in the middle of nowhere we will be lacking with activities to fill our time, surprisingly we hardly ever noticed the time with so much things...

Summary Review: My rating is soley based on value for money. If money is no object or not the most important part of a vacation decision for you, then this place is a solid bet. If you are more like I am, and have high expectations with the higher price point vacation options, then this may not be the place...

My partner and I had stayed in Water cottage #1, the furthest cottage to the open water. I would highly recommend to ask for that cottage or to have any of the other water cottages available. Normally they don't post the availability of them on agoda/booking.com and other booking websites, you have to book it directly with them on their...

I stayed at Miniloc for three nights in May. I went there after three days at Pangulasian, where I could not stay longer, because it was full. It's true that the level of Pangulasian is much much higher (it is really HEAVEN), but there is also a huge price difference. Miniloc is still a very beautiful hotel! The island is...

This is our second time to visit Miniloc, and their commitment to excellence still holds true since our last visit three years ago. We stayed for 4D3N in one of their water cottages, and the morning view in our balcony is just amazing. The room is spotless, comfortable, and perfect for a romantic getaway. The package includes full board buffet...

I left Miniloc Island this morning after 3 nights and 3 full days on the island. I was on the fence when I booked here, mostly because of the price. Now I can’t imagine having made any other decision. This review is long because I’m going to cover everything I remember while it’s fresh but if you don’t want to...
