Spent 3 days in paradise here, stayed in Villa which is set atop stanchions providing a great view from the balcony and offering modest privacy. Staff was extremely accommodating and very friendly. Cuisine is top notch, breakfast buffet is widely varied and well presented, lunch and dinner were both delicious (fruit salad, fish, crab) and fulfilling. Resort caters to couples but families were also present with plenty of things to do (hiking, island hopping, snorkeling, diving). Meals can be catered on remote island locations as well as locally on the beach making for a romantic rendezvous. Price is high but well worth it!
I really enjoyed staying outside the El Nido town centre, and Novie's made it that much easier. John Paul and the rest of the staff were genuinely caring and amazingly hospitable. If I could be half as good a host they are, I would be happy :).
this place looks nice on the pictures but when you actually get there you will soon realized that its different from your expectations. Forget about the restaurant service and the "Free Breakfast". Coffee is hot water and some cheap instant coffee which does not seem to be made of coffee beans. Ride to El Nido is PHP 50 (100 to go and come back). Staff is not helpful at all, they wanted to charge PHP 100 per passenger to call the van company to pick us up (Van company provides free pickups from the hotel and even drives by on the way to Puerto Princesa)
