  • 4.0.Fair

    It is a beautiful location but we cannot recommend it as the resort is very poorly managed, nothing works as promised, the management is incompetent and disorganized. The staff tries its best but cannot overcome these hurdles. The rooms are in okish condition. For the price there are better options in el nido so try to avoid this resort.

    Beautiful location in an island. Views are fantastic and has a small beach with white sand where you can go kayaking & snorkeling. Rooms are big and beautiful with very comfortable bed.

  • 6.0.Good

    Staff made assurances of tour availability before arrival, but had extremely limited availability upon arrival. Was limited to expensive private tour one day and had no options on 2nd (final) day, even though emails with property stated that all tours (up to 4 options) would be available and arranged upon arrival. While the property is beautiful and the one tour I was able to schedule was lovely, I feel as though they made assurances that they couldn't deliver. Note that outside boats are not allowed onto the property and arranging tours from the El Nido town when staying here is very inconvenient (have to take a 5:30am boat (for a fee) to the mainland to arrange for 9am tour). Resort restaurant had decent food. Massage was very nice alternative when tour was not available.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    A beautiful, tropical getaway in the Philippines. Matinloc Resort is a nature lover's paradise. Gorgeous, scenic views and breathtaking blue waters. Friendly and attentive staff to serve your every need. This location, however, can be a bit challenging to navigate if you have mobility issues or a disability requiring ramp access.
