We really had a great time in Miniloc. We didn't know what to expect during our travel especially since it happened during the pandemic. We tried hyping ourselves by watching YouTube videos about El Nido since it would be the first time my wife and I were going. And all those reviews paled in comparison to the actual thing! From booking to the actual stay, everything went absolutely smoothly! Romie assisted my wife through the whole booking transaction and to scheduling our PCR-Swab test with Qualimed. It was so comforting to know that all of those flying into the resort were tested and were going to shuttled from point to point. Also, it's salient to note that even the staff of the resort are tested before each set of guests arrive and after all guests leave. This really ensures that everyone is 100% healthy, and they also follow strict mask and shield protocols for the staff. As we arrived in the island, we were so stunned by how amazingly clear the water was, and Miniloc Island Resorts was tucked away in such a wonderful little cove. Andy, our escort on the boat, mentioned that they had majority of the tourist sites in Miniloc Island. The meals were pre-packed as opposed to the usual buffet-style, but the Filipino themed meals were so well prepared and were excellent! Don't be deceived by the term "packed meals" because we were absolutely stuffed after each seating. Roy was also kind enough to always check in on us, and we were having a great time. Angel, the Guest Activities Coordinator made sure our trip was filled with great tours and at the appropriate timing. She would advise if it it is an ideal condition to go to make sure we'd have a great time at each point of our trip. We loved having the chance to explore the tourist spots without the crowds and were assisted by Mario and Rico. Both very kind and courteous (in fact, all of the staff in the resort were of the same disposition). After each tour, we would hang around the pool and Gamie from the bar would make sure we were served with water and towels. On our last morning, for our "sunrise" activity, we made changes to our plans with Angel and she made sure that everything went smoothly for us. She arranged for our breakfast to be prepared by the kitchen and we took a short boat trip to Entalula Island where we literally watched the sun come up on the horizon. It was the most unique sunrise experience we've ever had. We sat on the beach, ate our breakfast, had coffee while the sun was creeping up over the mountains. All in all, this is our favorite island experience and tops our trip to many other islands we've been to! I'd like to also extend a very special mention to Mac and Eds for making sure my wife and I had a great honeymoon experience - from the complimentary wine bottle to a room with a spectacular view of the ocean. We are already considering booking again next year!
