Exceptional”

The place is simply amazing! You could really feel like you are on a tropical island! I loved the experience of showering outside with only the stars and the palm trees swaying in the wind <3 The huts are well kept, they look even better than in the pictures. Make sure to schedule the boat trip to the island earlier - we didn't and we actually ended up paying for it once again... Still worth it though! The place serves big breakfast and you could also get some food and drinks there - all natural and really tasty :) The island itself is definitely worth visiting, I think I'll never forget the shades of blue I've seen there.

Fantastic island. Good and bad things”

Good - private beach - amazing sunset - clean facilities - kind host Bad - food bit expensive than hotel. Not many choice. if you order food early, but someone already order food immidatly. So maybe you can not get what you want. Also easy to sold out menu... - it's difficult directions who want cheep to go to this island. We want to know where is boat place. But host didn't tell us kind direction. We took a tuktuk 700php, also tuktuk driver asked when we almost arrive boat place. We don't know exactly direction. Tuktuk asked small town people, kind town someone guy he drive with us for direction. We stayed 2 nights, we budget traveler so we can not stay longer here. You can do snorkeling, swimming. Easy to find clown fish . but I'm not sure about the price.

Not worth the money”

Paid 50€ for a bungalow that was essentially the same as the bungalow we paid 6€ for in Sibultan. Photos make it look like all the bungalows have views, but they don't - we had a view of the back of the bungalow in front of us and couldn't see the sea at all. Food is expensive and disappointing. Showers are outside with a small strip of fabric attempting to cover you, but really not covering much. The showers are also right in front of where all the staff sit behind the restaurant area, it's a bit weird (I had a lot of eyes on me while showering). Expecting a lot more from 50€/night. Beach is beautiful, but you could go there for the day to explore the shipwreck and then stay somewhere else!

Awesome!!”

Pros: the beach is marvellous !! White sand, very clean, you can go snorkeling to see a ship wreck You are alone on this island most of the time (there are some boats coming with tourists for around 2 hours in the afternoon), it’s very nice to be away from the crowd for a few days !! Shared Toilets and outdoor showers are very clean (it’s tap water, not sea salt water) The menu has at least 3 dishes to choose from and changes at every meal ! (Meat, veggie and fish) Electricity available from sunset to 9-10pm for the fan in the hut and to recharge your battery They offer the boat transfer, and can also arrange a transport from el Nido for a fair price, staff was very reactive when I contacted them, it was very nice Room is clean and simple (a mattress on the floor with a good net) Cons : nothing really, except it was quite hot actually in the hut at night but that’s a detail compared to our amazing journey there !! Recommend 100%!!! We had an amazing time !

Super Erfahrung”

Das Backpacker Island liegt sehr gut auf der westseite eine Insel mit mehreren Resorts, unter anderem ein Tao Expedition Camp direkt nebenan. Die Hütten sind im Prinzip nur Matratze und Mosquito Netz, dies reicht jedoch und fühlt sich and wie campen. Das Essen schmeckt hervorragend, Wird aber ohne Kühlschrank jeden Tag frisch geliefert, weswegen man bei Eiern aufpassen sollte. Alles in allem ein sehr gelungener Aufenthalt auf einer fast einsamen Insel
