we very much enjoyed our trip to Lagen Island - very comfortable room and friendly very helpful staff. The water and surrounding scenery was so very pretty. Only suggestions would be to have the bartenders by the pool come around and offer drinks periodically, and to offer a broader a la cart menu at restaurant for those not wanting the...

Stayed in Lagen island for a weekend and the place is terrific. The resort is very private and there are no words to describe the beauty of the nature. I will try to give you all the possible details re my stay: 1. Getting there: we took an early AirSwift flight (7am) from Manila to El Nido (this is the...

We first visited Lagen a year ago, whilst looking at venues for our wedding - having previously stayed at Apulit, another El Nido resort on our first holiday together. We returned this year for our wedding, and it exceeded our already high expectations by a million miles. Ms Jen and her staff are so welcoming and friendly, they made us...

Although we stayed at a different resort, we were able to spend the better part of one of our El Nido days in Lagen Island Resort, lunching and enjoying the resort facilities at no extra cost. I loved the look and the feel of the place, the way it sat nestled amidst its splendid surroundings. Food was great! Ambience sublime!...

We stayed in Lagen Island Resort from Jan 24 to Jan 28th. The overall experience was outstanding. Staff at Lagen Island cannot do enough for the guests. The resort was curved out of an island and preserved the natural inhabitants and vegetation. There were monkeys, hornbills, water monitor lizards and other tropical animals resident to the resort. The water cottages...

Views are amazing, service is terrific, rooms were awesome, accessibility (if the weather isn't great) to other areas if difficult considering Lagen's location vs. other El Nido properties, the food gets a bit old after 2 days.

I recently stayed here for 2 nights (1 night cut short due to air swift cancellation!) so beware of Air Swift but no alternative really was a distress start, but it was a mechanical failure. The good thing is the resort said they would refund me missing day as think they are linked to the airline. Air port transfers were...
