We really enjoyed our stay at Miniloc Island. It is located in the best position in El Nido to see the main tourist attractions. All the food, snorkel gear, kayaks, transfers to other islands, and some tours, were complimentary - this saves a lot of money! We were able to be dropped off at the Small lagoon at 05:30am in our kayak and were the first ones there, which was a truly special and unforgettable moment. We also visited some of the other resorts and definitely preferred Miniloc, it has some of the best snorkelling in El Nido on it's doorstep. It is also worth noting the you can have lunch at any of the other El Nido resorts to check them out, and they transfer you there for free.
Some small areas for improvement: The rooms are nice but a tiny bit dated (not that you are in them much). Also, the cocktail list needs improving. Service was great but could be better. Another big improvement would be to use the speedboats more than the traditional motor boats that took us ages to get everywhere, including the transfer from the airport. I have stayed at other local resorts and they quite often use a speedboat which takes a 3rd of the time to get anywhere.
All in all we would most definitely recommend Miniloc resort and would go back there again.More
