One of the Most Memorable Experiences in My Life”

Island-hopping, activities, staff that goes above and beyond

Going to El Nido itself is a one of a kind experience. But to stay in El Nido Resorts Lagen Island while you're there will make it a truly once in a lifetime moment. The staff will go well above and beyond your expectations. They'll know you by name, and they'll do whatever it takes to make your stay there a memorable one. They have an Activities officer that will help you plan and maximize your stay in El Nido, and they'll customize your activities according to your preferences. The hotel manager is an active participant; he doesn't just sit in an office. He looks for ways to enrich each of the hotel guests' experiences. If you're going to go to El Nido, don't short-change your experience by staying at another hotel that's less expensive. As the idiom goes, "you get what you pay for", but in the case of El Nido Resorts Lagen Island, you will get more than you'd ever expect. We'll go back there as soon as we can just to re-experience the beautiful moment that El Nido Resorts helped us have.

Exceptional”

El Nido Lagen Island is a very peaceful and relaxing Sanctuary. The hike, beach, kayaking, paddleboard all just wonderful. The surrounding area is also amazing. Corals are so healthy and the environmental approach to El Nido Resorts is one that will make these islands last in years to come. The price is extravagant for Philippines standards and many activities ( like island hopping) and food are not included in basic room price. Advertised room price on outlets does not include taxes. The taxes, service charge and supplement package ( for all inclusive) really makes the daily rate very high. It is just important to know when you are looking at this type of resort. The Service was wonderful and employees take care of every need. It was a once in a life time trip and glad we chose Lagen Island. Next time , though I will probably look for a more economical resort if ever in El Nido.

A Hotel that Needs Maintenance and Upkeep”

Location, Staff Service and Hospitality, Privacy

Lagen Island hotel staff and locals of Lio Airport were very hospitable. We took the full board accommodation which covered buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner; island hopping tours;lunch at Entalula Island after the morning's island hopping, kayaking, swimming and snorkeling. To avail of tour D (Secret Beach, Hidden Beach, Matinloc Shrine)I had to charter a boat for $100 for the first 4 hours and an additional $50 for the next 2 hours. I had the impression that A,B,C and D tours are included in the full board. The comfort room of the hotel needs locks in case guests are not honeymooners; wall paint is sagging and ballons with either moulds or sea water creeping on the structure. Lio Airport which caters to El Nido Resorts guests provide complimentary tea, coffe, soda, traditional snacks (merienda) like kutsinta. El Nido island hopping tours is a must see in a lifetime and El Nido Resorts bring you there in style.

We loved Lagen Island and cant wait to go back!”

Use of faciilites at Miniloc and two other islands when paying full board

El Nido exceeded our expectations. We did not realise that when you have full board during your stay, you can use the facilities of Miniloc, Entalula and Dirimbula islands. Everyday your activities co-ordinator will help you plan something to do - most activities are free (only ones that arent are diving and sea kayaking with a guide I think) We swam with jackfish, ate a beautiful picnic lunch on Entalula - freshly grilled fish, prawns and meats, salads - all servied on banana leaves. The staff are super friendly! We visited Miniloc Island the sister resort to Lagen Island and were glad we chose Lagen - Miniloc was beautiful too - but the rooms were older. This was our honeymoon and we stayed in a water cottage. I highly recommend El Nido Resorts.

expensive

we stayed for two nights at el nido resorts, lagen island, after staying five nights at a budget hotel on the main island. although it cost literally ten times more than the budget hotel, it was worth it. from the moment we began our journey from the airport to the hotel, we had personalized attention from the staff. they were extremely nice and accommodating. the resort itself was beautiful and well-appointed. the activities available at the various islands within the el nido resort family were definitely plentiful.

I have travelled and seen places around the world, but Lagen Resort in El Nido just blew me away. Everything from the transport to the stay was exceptional and breathtaking. Loved the nice and always smiling staff that remembered everything and made our stray great. The rooms are super clean and well kept up, the pool is a great place to relax. All the activities and the coordination were perfect – we just did not have enough time. I can highly recommend this resort – Paradise – to everyone. Even great for children. I will and have to come back soon … thank you El Nido Resorts for making my holiday so memorable. You put a Huge Smile on our Faces all the time.

Incredible relaxing experience”

After visiting Cebu and Siargao, we planned a whole week in El Nido. As we were looking for some relaxing time to close the holidays, Lagen Resort ended up to be a great choice :) we stayed there for 2 nights and staff was super nice and caring, helping us to coordinate our travel connections even with agents external to their network. The building is not new but you can see there’s an effort in maintenance. The sea rooms are so cozy and romantic, you have privacy and sleep only with the sound of the sea waves! There are many activities provided, most of them you have to pay an extra value as it would if you were doing them outside the resort. We did the island hopping group tours before going to the resort but kind of regret that as the groups seem to be quite small! Food has very good quality as well. Can’t wait to come back!

Heaven Retreat”

I had a tear drop..surprisingly..when Jes and the team bid us farewell. The stay was indeed awesome and indeed El Nido Lagen resort is paradise. Hospitality was top notch all the way. Special thanks to Randy our tour guide for his professionalism on the island trips and snorkelling ..and BamBam the youngest of the team but great photography skills and captured the best shoot for the sunrise. I applaud the team for the eco- spirit and made me realise how much more we should and can do back home. Keep up the great efforts and El Nido will be here as our heaven retreat!

Beautiful island getaway!”

Set in a beautiful lagoon, peaceful, tranquil and very friendly service.

we wanted to see el nido for the dramatic limestone islands and for the marine sanctuary. staying at the lagen island resort was a bonus as we got a great deal mid week. we had a forest room and it was spacious, well equipped and nicely decorated. i did miss the no coffee and tea facilities in the room at first but then realised you could call room service for fresh coffee at no extra charge. i guess this is part of their green policy, reducing waste. the resort is lovely and the gardens have grown out well since it opened 8yrs ago (could be a little older). the trips they organised were great days out to beach clubs where you got the only missing in the lagoon based resort, the beach! just remember there is no beach at the resort, but it's only a short boat trip to one of two beach clubs that also have lots of other activities too. the trips out do cost a bit but they are great fun and your lunch is included. the only slight negative for us was the food as even though it was a buffet, for a 5 star with this reputation, some dishes were just plain bland. we got served two different thai salads, or so they were labelled, but they weren't remotely thai.

Me and my Wife went to El Nido Lagen for our Honeymoon. We purchased the Water Cottage, along with the Honeymoon package. The Honeymoon Package was good but it was a little bit pricey. Many of the staff there were incredibly hospitable and attentive. One of the best thing about our stay was when we went on our half-day tour (included in the Honeymoon Package), and we decided to take the tour that takes us to Miniloc Resort (one of their affiliated resort) and see the Jack Fish feeding. It was quite an experience to see them up close. Also, since we did not get to eat breakfast at Lagen that time, we asked if we could eat at Miniloc and they allowed us to eat there. I'd like to mention Kuya Ray (restaurant manager) who was very friendly and was someone who treated us with respect. We chose this place to have a relaxing getaway after our wedding and we definitely made the right choice.

Tropical Paradise. Don't think twice before booking.”

We stayed here for 1 night (Water Cottage) but I would recommend at least 2 nights stay to capture the beauty of this magical island. Ask for room 109. Reaching there: Took a share taxi from PPS airport (6 hours drive) to port. A flight from Manila to El Nido airport is a better option and the resort will arrange a complimentary pick up. Pros: Extraordinary location, has a private beach. Sea cottages are built ON the lagoon which opens into the ocean. Complimentary snorkelling, kayaking, bird watching, forest hike, sunrise and sunset cruise. Diving, massages, and island tours can be paid for. Staff is very helpful and polite. Great biodiversity. Complimentary bottle of wine was delicious and really added to our honeymoon experience. Con: restaurant staff had no idea about the preparation of meals and couldn't answer simple qs regarding the meals (the server was unable to tell us the assortment of meats in the seafood pasta). If allergic please inform upfront. Otherwise it's perfect.

Paradise”

The setting is absolutely stunning, the staff was incredibly welcoming and attentive and the activities and grounds were the ultimate with a combination of adventure and relaxation. The absolute only thing I would even attempt to criticize would be the food. It was of good quality and fairly priced, but maybe not quite as gourmet as one might expect at such a spectacular resort. Overall an absolutely amazing experience for which we wished we had booked many more nights. Thank you El Nido Lagen!

Paradise - found .... eventually”

Paradise, getaway. Beautiful location and accomodation right on beach. Staff really friendly and helpful.

travelled late july early august so into rainy season. flights with "in-house" carrier iti. small turboprop. unable to cope with weather conditions (i would class as rainy and a bit breezy ... flown in much much worse. flights cancelled 2 days in a row. when eventually got there boat transfer rough, small open boat for over 1 hr in a bit choppy sea. got completely drenched. that said el lagen island resort was such a beautiful location the travel logistics were quickly forgotten. accommodation right on beach lagoon was fantastic. staff brilliant, friendly, helpful. food average, service very good. overall brilliant resort and location but travel logistics problematic and needs to be better for price paid.

memorable anniversary trip”

people, place, lagoon

My hubby and I had the time of our lives at Lagen. Aside from the known fact that El Nido is breathtaking in itself, the staff's warm hospitality is most commendable too. They make us feel loved, important and pampered. Every detail to ensure our comfort is given attention. I especially loved that they dedicated a song for us during dinner and gave us an anniversary token too. I would love to come back to this heaven on earth.

Beautiful location. Amazing staff. Unique place!”

Staff, Outlook, and Kayaks!

My wife, child and I decided to for one week to Lagen Resort at El Nido because we prefer the quiet, serene, and exclusive when we go away. The islands are absolutely stunning! What we didn't really think through was its suitability for toddlers. Because it advertised a "Kids Club" my wife and I thought it may be great to get some alone time also - didn't really happen. There is a small, unmanned room called a "kids club" with no staff or activities put on - consequently we did have to be our child's entertainment the whole time. This was the ONE setback for Lagen! (as well as the small rooms) - The beautiful staff did however always acknowledge and communicate with our son. Because of the above, we wouldn't go again as a family, BUT a romantic interlude?... perhaps.. Worth the high price? well, the rooms were relatively small, yet well appointed. Internet simply doesn't work well 90% of the time, so take your own mobile and hotspot it if you absolutely need internet. Still, the exclusiveness, and OUTLOOK of the rooms is spectacular, and that alone carries the experience! Food? So so.. we are vegetarians so although the chef made an AMAZING effort to accommodate us (thanks chef!), there was limited ingredients and vegetables available. The meals we did make were suitably nice though. Buffet breakfast and dinner? Pretty average. In any case, you won't be short on options when you eat and it is bound to be adequate. This beautiful place far exceeds that value you will place in the food anyhow! Staff - phenomenal, prompt, friendly, considerate, and beautiful folk. They really did carry the experience there and if anything "lifts the star rating" on Lagen, they do! Nothing is too much, and they genuinely seem to care. Any business should be proud to have these guys as their team! Sum up? AMAZING place! Experience of a lifetime! Not great for toddlers... food pretty good... and life experience? A place you will never forget.

Classy hotel”

Good service

El Nido Lagen is one the premier hotels in Palawan. The resort is very clean and the staff are very helpful. Food is expensive but they taste good. The sunset view in front of the hotel is also great.

Heaven on earth ”

The resort is absolutely stunning. We went for the end part of our honeymoon and everything from arrival at airport to check in was smooth and super efficient. The boat ride was spectacularly scenic. The resort hosted and array of wildlife so never a dull moment even just walking around or sitting by the pool. The resident water monitor lizards and macaque monkeys were always hanging about !! Staff were amazing and the food was really good. The tours arranged by the hotel were fabulous. The snorkelling in particular was breathtaking. The corals and sea life were so beautiful and plentiful. The el nido groups of resorts are a fabulous get a way. Would highly recommend this place for both a peaceful and tranquil holiday for some days and action packed for others.
