I just got back from about a week at Apulit and it exceeded my wildest expectations. This is an adventures lovers paradise and an excellent way to see the beautiful island of the Philippines, get away from the cold weather, and relax after spending some time in Manila. I’ve broken down my stay at Apulit for those considering staying here....

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and we must say El Nido Resorts (Apulit) is the place to be. We were quite surprised to know that all activities were included in the room rate! We rock climbed, took a sunset cruise, island snorkel, paddle boarded and kayaked. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The food was...

I went to El Nino Apulit in August 2016, that may have been a mistake. It was suffocatingly hot and the A/C in the room couldn't handle the heat. It sputtered and barely cooled the room which made for excruciatingly bad nights. The snorkeling was very good, but the waters in August were not as clear as they would have...

After long journey from Manila. This resort totally recharge me in a few hours. My first impression was about welcoming from staffs. That was so impressive. No need to find additional things to do here. Just sit back and relax. Food also good as well.

Fly Air Swift. This will take you directly to El Nido airport. From the airport, snacks are provided, then an hour shuttle to the port of Taytay. Another 60min of boat transfer to Apulit Islands. All resort employees are very friendly and accommodating.

Spent 7 days here and had a great relaxing time which was the intention after some full on time in China. 3 of us (adults) shared a 2 bedroom over water bungalow. Despite rooms being a little tired - noisy air con, windows needed attention as did curtains - it did not detract from the overall enjoyment of the location,...

We stayed for a week and totally relaxed into this special island. The cottages are a little tired but the location is fantastic. Our cottage had steps into the water and so you can snorkel on the reef just by your back step. (Best at low tide). Lots of free activities, recommend the morning trip to Isla Blanca, a real...
