    The only reason I didn't give the resort 5 stars is because you need to bring your own alcohol. Otherwise, it is a perfect destination for views, luxury and relaxation. I'll definitely be back!

    We booked our stay at the Mantiloc resort for our honeymoon. We had high hopes going in but ended up leaving 2 days early disappointed. The staff, and the hotel itself are both lovely. The food is not great (honestly, it’s just bad) and it’s double or triple what you’d pay in El Nido. My wife and I are vegetarian and there were very few options for us. Every other hotel we’ve stayed at all over Palawan were extremely accommodating, so if you have dietary restrictions… beware. There are monkeys, lizards and large bees on the island. One morning there was a large group of giant bees hanging from the patio right outside our door. The shower didn’t have hot water, the room didn’t have WiFi, the TV had only a few channels and given the wifi issues streaming was very limited. Finally, the island is 25min boat ride from El Nido and trips cost $1000 PHP per person. So if you’re traveling with a partner expect to pay $2000 PHP each trip you make to the island. At the end our stay we requested a refund given our experience and that we were on our honeymoon. We would have given 3 stars if the resort refunded us (even partially) or offered a sincere apology.

    Great experience at this resort! It’s a great place for peace and relaxation. The beach is amazing with some great snorkelling! They let you kayak to a close sandbar which feels like your own private beach! The staff is amazing and go above and beyond! The rooms are a bit older but very large with comfortable beds and clean! There is no alcohol at the resort but everyone was aware and brought their own alcohol if they wanted to drink. To get of the boat might be a bit problematic if you have disability or ability issues. The food is good but more basic we had a great experience and thought it was worth the price especially at peak season in El nido! We waited to get back into el nido centre to do our tours though as they were a bit more expensive at this place! We would stay here again and would recommend the place! Also the staff is just so amazing and go above and beyond!

    Excellent hidden and secluded private resort. Perfect for just relaxing and doing minimal activities. The staff is very commendable for being super friendly and helpful. The dinner buffet could use some improvement in food selection for the USD ~$30 price paid per person though. Look for Jed in the La Playa area. He's super friendly and very helpful all around! This guy deserves a raise!

    We enjoyed our stay at Matinloc. The resort is very luxurious and your experience is personalised. The crew was great and very attentive. We stayed at other resorts in El Nido but wished we stayed at Matinloc for longer. Lots of amenities and activities offered and the room we stayed in was gorgeous with an amazing beach front at our doorstep. To improve: - there should be more food options - better communication from the reservations team prior to the trip
