What a beautiful property in the loveliest location. The breakfast selection was different every day with varying hot Filipino staples as well as pastries, cereal, toasts and eggs. The staff were extremely helpful and polite, catering to every need. The massages were the best, especially after a long day of touring the different islands all day. The location couldn’t be more perfect, far enough from the town so it’s quiet and secluded, but still less than a 10 minute walk to all the bars/restaurants/shops and tours on the beach. Every time we come to El Nido, we only want to stay at Cadlao!

Staff and service were top notch! Shout out to Cid, the Operations Manager for going above and beyond. He is awesome and always checked on us. Front desk and housekeeping team were great too! The only downside was the main pool. It’s still being fixed and shutdown due to heavy waves from December which is understandable. Food from the restaurant were extremely delicious specifically the Tanigue in coconut milk and seafood marinara! We will definitely stay again.

Cadlao has two different pools, both of which blend seamlessly into the beautiful backdrop of El Nido. The property is stunning, located directly on the beach so you can walk on the beach to the tourist area in the morning during low tide. The restaurant was phenomenal, and the bar made a truly delicious calamansi mojito. Despite arriving fairly late in the evening, we were greeted by the property manager with a virgin cocktail, and attentive staff who were quick to make sure our heavy bags were delivered to our rooms without our having to lug them around ourselves. I loved our stay, and would absolutely come back. However- some points to note: 1) they are an eco-friendly resort, so they reduce power consumption during certain hours, but they also have a generator to keep the fan and lights on 2) during high tide, at night, you have to be able to find your way through the winding back streets of the local neighborhood because the water will cover the beach entirely and you won’t be able to access the resort that way. It’s very easy to learn the route, but it’s worth noting if your vacation goal is to drink to the point of not remembering how to get back home

Awesome place. Had everything we needed and more. The resort is accessible to the beach and main shops with a tricycle for free or a short walk. Gorgeous views. Sid the owner was very personable and attentive. Will be returning soon!

We stayed here for 3 nights and the entire staff us so accommodating. Sid greets us when we arrive and I swear he never sleeps. We see him every where and he is so helpful and is truly looking out for his guest. It was it first time in Palawan and we had no worries from transportation to the hotel, getting around town and arriving safe back to the airport. I will definitely be staying here next time.

The staff was warm and inviting. The location close to town. And the view of Cadlao island - she was a spectacular, gentle giantess rising from the depths of the ocean. It was humbling to meet her every morning! And the buffets were amazing too!
