Guest Review: Pangulasian Island

Absolutely amazing! One of the best in Philippine premium resorts! That’s how we can describe this El Nido resort, Pangulasian.

Our choice of pool villa was the right one because it had a nice view of the sea, mountains and boats — which greet you as you wake up, it was surrounded by trees and bushes for privacy and some shade and was a nice background while swimming in your own private pool (day and night) and had a spacious and well-designed bedroom and bathroom.

The food was sooo good! Better than other five-star hotels we have been to here and abroad. We learned later that the resort has a famous chef as its consultant. There were good takes on the traditional sinigang, poke bowl and calamansi pie, to name a few. Room service was for the asking for BLD, at no extra cost, and was quick and efficient.

There were so many activities to join which is part of the package, but for an additional fee, one can rent a private speed boat, which we did, visiting the beautiful sites, caves and lagoons, that will make you proud to be a Filipino. We did kayaking and paddle boarding, beach cove exploration and more. As an extra treat, our guide was a good photographer! It was worth every peso.

But the best thing to us was the impeccable service of all the staff and management! Everyone made us feel special and at home, with most of them remembering our names — from the resort manager, executive sous chef, front desk staff, room attendants, beach cleaners, resort maintenance and cleaning staff, boat hands and the lady doctor. All our requests were given prompt attention. Examples were the golf cart being available within minutes or immediately, and fast relief from the skin irritation caused by the planktons in the waters, which was prevalent in some areas at the time we were there (mid-April).

We intend to go back to experience more of the activities like snorkeling, and just enjoy the peace and quiet of the place. Kudos to Pangulasian Island Resort!
