Great location!”

It was an amazing place to stay at for relaxation and chillin beach vibes. Enjoyed the variety of restaurant locations nearby and of course the beach is just few steps away. The room we had is bigger than most hotels and very comfy. The breakfast could have more selections, but still great overall.

Awesome Experience”

Isla Amara is such an awesome place to stay in El Nido. Lio Beach is just a few steps away. Their pool is warm but insects could get into it so probably need daily cleaning. Family room is big but the ac location needs to be changed. It is right in front of the door and does not get the whole room cold. Breakfast is good but need to add more selection. Tv cable has a weak signal. Wifi in the room is not working. No telephone either. Nevertheless, we had a comfortable stay and the kids enjoyed it.

It could have been better”

Our stay at Isla Amara Resort could've been better as we liked our room, overlooking the mountains and the pretty poolside. It's beachfront location is perfect. However, for the amount that we've paid, we expected a better service and amenities. We are aware that they've just opened that weekend however, the guests expectations should be their priority. It looks like the staff weren't prepared and trained well for it. Firstly, I specifically asked for a large bed when I booked ages ago as we are a couple (booking name is Mr and Mrs) however, they allocated a twin bed hence it took longer than usual to give us a room. The receptionist was really friendly tho and had apologised for the oversight. As the room wasn't prepared beforehand, bear in mind we arrived at 5pm, there were no towels at all and we had to request for them which took almost half an hour to arrive. Not ideal if you fancy a shower upon checking in after a 6-hour journey. The condition of the towels wasn't something you'd expect as it has stains and we had to ask if they are 100% sure that they are clean. The beach towels were in better state so we had to use them for the next day instead. We woke up one day at 6am with really loud noise coming from the generator which was situated just in front of our room. Thank goodness it wasn't on every day! We were booked for 5 nights so we expected housekeeping to pay a visit if not every day at least check on what the guests may be lacking in the room. However, it wasn't the case as we came back to the room after island tours with water jug not been refilled and no toilet roll. The wifi connection is only at the reception hence, there's no working TV channels at all. It would've been nice to lay on the bed and watch something on TV before retiring for the day. No hangers, no clothesline in the bathroom to hang your wet swimsuits, and no shampoo (broken canister). The choices on the breakfast buffet isn't great if you are a vegetarian. The price of a San

What a lovely hotel in Lio. The location is perfect, so near the beach, restaurants, Mercury Drug. Airport is just 5 minutes away via Trike. They upgraded us to a room with a beach view. The team was very friendly and accommodating and arranged our Tours very well. The breakfast was limited but I think it’s okay cos they just opened. They also refilled our water often. Thank you! We really enjoyed 😍 see you again!

Unaware of the Lio beach area, everything was a surprise until we got to Isla Amara. Aside from the chill vibes of the beach, the hotel was accessible to it and catered to our needs whilst our stay. This definitely won't be my last stay as I will plan out my next El Nido trip and come back here for more.

Straight to the point, best location”

We enjoyed our trip very much. Internet is good. Location is close to a lot of restaurants so you can really relax as much as you want on the beach (just a few meters away), or the pool. I gave 4 stars because I would prefer a wider breakfast selection. There are also a few leaks at the outdoor dining area so it's difficult to find a spot. My son is beside me now demanding to give the resort 5 stars.

The resort is clean and is accessible to Lio Beach and Lio airport. Not beachfront but about 2-3 mins walk to the beach. The area is exclusive, very private and secured. Very near rows of restaurants but most of them are closed during weekdays. Mercury drug is just beside the hotel. Breakfast is included not Buffet and with limited choices. They should improve the taste and the quality of food.

Really Pleasant Experience”

We had a fantastic experience at Isla Amara and Lio Beach in general. Rooms are spacious and clean. Staff were very friendly and efficient. We stayed for a total of 6 nights, they already knew what our preferences were. The pool stays warm even in the evening. Its close proximity to the airport is not a bother as there are only a very few flights in a day, it is actually a big plus because there is hardly any travel time to/from airport. It costs about Php300 to travel via tricycle to El Nido town (ask the front desk to hail for you). I gave only 4 stars because I would like a wider breakfast selection than what they offer at the moment. There were some leaks at the outdoor dining area as well so it was difficult to find a spot. Otherwise it would have been 5 stars for me. My son is beside me now and reading this review, demanding I give the resort 5 stars.
