The only place to stay in El Nido
If you wrote down a list of exactly what you were looking for in a hotel/resort in El Nido, Pangulasian ticks all the boxes. The key thing that makes all the difference is its proximity to the main attractions, Big Lagoon, Small Lagoon, etc. So when I left the resort in a speed boat at 7am, the tourists from the main island do not arrive until 9am or 10am. I had small lagoon all to myself for a full hour and no one showed up. I also enjoyed secret lagoon for a full hour before anyone showed up. These are some of the most beautiful places in the world, and you don't want them ruined with the sight of florescent kayaks and life vests. El Nido has put restrictions on the number of people that can visit each site, and the combination of sites that can be visited on the same day. So you will need to stay here at least 3 nights as you can't go to big and small lagoon on the same day. Pangulasian is a spacious beautiful resort on its own private island. The staff are friendly, the rooms are relaxing, the views are heavenly, it really is paradise. Like the Maldives but with views of nature and more greenery. The resort also has a small trail to a view point where you can watch the beautiful El Nido sunrise and sunset. Finally if you're an early bird, you can go snorkeling right in front of the resort and see sharks. Not just one small shark from a distance. I saw 7 different sharks right in front of me. Don't worry they are not dangerous, and fear you more than you fear them.

Great honeymoon spot
Was there on honeymoon. The island is beautiful. The staff are great and incredibly helpful- they went above and beyond. The rooms are fabulous and very nice. The property is lovely. The complimentary activities were perfect. The food was delicious and many options. We had a great stay and would recommend anyone go there. Perfect for families or couples. Also worth mentioning that the operations were seamless and was very easy to travel to thanks to the resort.

Um paraíso em Palawan
Estadia incrível. Hotel maravilhoso. Quarto amplo, limpo e impecável. Deixam mimos todas as noites e ainda nos brindam com chinelos, chapéus e bolsa. Quero voltar para este paraíso.

Site à couper le souffle, mais ...
Séjour en décembre 2019 pendant les fêtes de Noël dans une Villa plage. Le Pangulasian Resort coincé sur un îlot en pleine mer bénéficie d’un emplacement top et offre des vues à couper le souffle de l’aube au coucher de soleil. Le resort est résolument eco-friendly, ce qui est fortement appréciable. Cela ne justifie pas pour autant les quelques manquements qui sont pour nous rédhibitoires et ne devraient pas valoir au Pangulasian Resort ni les 5 étoiles ni le prix pratiqué surtout en période de fêtes. La restauration se limite à des buffets gargantuesques et souvent médiocres, même pour le réveillon de Noel ! Service à la carte pratiquement inexistant et disponible exclusivement autour de la piscine. Et quelle histoire pour avoir des mangues ! Salle et terrasse de restauration dépourvue de tout charme que un tel lieu devrait mériter. Le resort s’inscrit dans le « no-plastique » ce qui est plus que louable ... pour autant je n’ai jamais vu le staff nettoyer la plage des bouteilles et autres objets en plastique ramenés par la mer. La place n’est pas traité sous prétexte de protection de l’environnement et d’interdiction d’utilisation de substances chimiques, les mouches de sables peuvent donc prospérer .... aucune information préalable n’est faite en ce sens au clients devant utiliser sur eux des produits chimiques pour se protéger ! Pendant le séjour le typhon Ursula était de passage au nord du resort .... nous trouvons que cette situation et ses effets collatéraux (dont in

Facilities not maintain that well, and you have to keep calling front desk to fix these. You will feel it overprice and not meet your exceptions.
