    El Nido is a beautiful place so I won't get into the beauty of the resort. The pics on the site does a pretty good job of that. The true value at Qi is the staff and the owners. They truly make you feel at home. The staff is very personable from the wait staff, cooks and cleaning staff to the tour guides & different activity instructors. The food was awesome every day and I heard more things are coming to the menu. I can talk for days about this place but you will just have to see and experience it for yourself. The owners are awesome and treat their staff with the upmost care and respect!! In return the staff gives it back to the guest!! Absolutely AWESOME place for a relaxing get-a-way!!

    If you are looking for shopping and tourist attractions, this is not the place for you. This is a TRUE relaxing resort. The Internet was slow but that was OK because it made me stop doing what I do on a daily basis and just RELAX and enjoy the beauty of El Nido and Qi Resorts.

    The perfect spot to relax in the peace and quiet. Small so everything was very relaxed and informal. Trips and equipment were easy to book. Food was delicious and the views were outstanding. Simply a beautiful spot.

    Isolated location if you're looking for a peaceful retreat. Great food at the on site restaurant and a lovely relaxed environment. Nice maintained pool and option of doing yoga every morning was a unexpected bonus. Amazing breakfast!

    Very costly to get from El Nido to the resort (2,500pesos each way) for such a sort trip. Given that a 5 hour van journey from Puerto Princesa to El Nido is 500pesos each. Kite boarding was not available whilst we were there and there was no other alternative. The beach wasn't very nice but the pool made up for it. The restaurant was costly even without VAT although the food was fantastic. It's a great place for a maximum 3 day trip but can't imagine occupying ones self for a longer period of time. The only excursion offered is island hopping, which is beautiful but again extremely pricey and snorkelling is non existent.

    We felt like we had our private island retreat. Although we were not the only guests, we enjoyed private dinners and felt like we had the beach to ourselves. After many trips to Boracay, this was a refreshing change! All the staff made us feel at home and we had excellent service.

    Not too convenient to El Nido town but for us we were happy to get away from the crowds.

    As the hotel is new we were glad to find there fresh furnishings made in authentic design with a wonderful artistic sense. No unnecessary details. Cozy ambience. White fresh towels every day, well smelling rooms. Staying there we felt as we were in desert island far from technological civilization. That was we really wished to feel cause we knew that Palawan Island is a Filipino national reserve. The Resort is situated in a green virgin wood territory far from El Nido village (they call it city but really to say it's a village). Walking in resort's territory we met peaceful wild animals living over there. Every morning, without even getting out of bed, we could watch as the sun rises from the sea. The owners - european couple, are very friendly & attentive to their guests, ready to help in any question. Staff - cute smiling Filipino guys, well trained service, good at speking English

    We were looking for seclusion and we got it. The beach and ocean front made it seemed you were by yourself in a beautiful island. The staff were very attentive when present except when everything closes down around 10 pm. Everything went right except for last night when everything turned upside down literally, Please see "dislike" comments.

    Lack of front desk at night became an issue when wife got really sick with diarrhea. If not for someone spraying for mosquito abatement, I would not have been able to get immodium to help my wife. Then water ran out due to the constant flushing so it just made situation much much, worse. Did not get water again until after 6am which made getting ready to leave by 7:45am difficult, you must provide guest access to someone 24-hours a day and please don't let water run out. We had to use our last remaining drinking water to flush to get rid of smell in room. Then we had no more drinking water until restaurant opened at 7am.

    A beautiful boutique resort set on a long, gorgeous beach. The service was consistently excellent. The large, outdoor shower in each room is tremendous. Superb meals. A great value compared to the other, much more expensive resorts nearby!

    The hotel is a 45 minute drive by van from El Nido and the hotel transfer charges were not cheap. The road is fairly rough and dusty in spots, so motorbikes and tuk-tuks are not great alternatives. Bettina is glad to combine riders, but it is not always possible. So, don't plan on many quick or easy trips into El Nido.

    Great location (very secluded), beautifully furnished and spacious cottages right at the beach, very caring owners and great food! Great place to relax!

    The resort is an hour away from El Nido and there is nothing close by. But for a few days very nice!

    I booked this for my friends and they loved it! Their comments - "Everything was excellent. Superb service, Bettina is so helpful. Incredibly welcoming and attentive. The décor and design are beautiful with real attention to detail. Delicious food too. Stunning setting - perfect to get away from it all!

    Beautiful resort, comfortable rooms. Very remote spot so really felt you were getting away from it all. Enjoyed yoga in the morning. Bettina was very welcoming and helped arrange island hopping and any other trips you wanted. Food was good although a number of items weren't available at all which was a shame. Kids (4 and 7) were made very welcome even though it's not specifically a family resort.

    It is a long way out of El Nido, (which we knew) so 8 days was a long stay in terms of the menu, travelling for different activities etc. If I was doing it again would probably split between 5 days Qi Palawan and 3 El Nido.

    Qi Palawan has wonderful energy, a dream location for those who seek nature, silence, smog-free environment. It is intimate, tranquil , meditative. Also ideal for people practising yoga & meditation as there is a perfect designated place for that. The cottages are spacious, big and comfy beds and bed linen, amazing bathrooms. All cottages have terrace with an amazing view. Management helpful, always available and honest.

    - You are in wild nature that also has some less comfortable consequences. - If you plan longer stays after a while you probably get tired of eating the same kind of food every day. However they are happy to satisfy special requests.

    Not crowdy, quiet, superb bungalow under the palm trees "like it should be". Almost flat water on most winds and empty beach - just for kiters.

    Some corals are too high in low tide. Menu are not so reach for more than a week stays.

    The food is incredible. Location is worth the bumpy 50min drive. Private beach and very clean villas. A paradise hidden away on Palawan and the owners were very friendly and helpful. I earned some massive brownie points with the gf :)

    As its a new resort the massages were ok but not amazing, even tho we still enjoyed them as the staff are still being trained.

    The owner's are really nice and the value for mony appears unique for Palawan!

    Do keep in mind that the beach is protected by a reef so the water is very shallow. Its fine for taking a bath especially during high tide, but for real swimming its not ideal. Note that the Bacuit Archipelago is on the other side of the island so if you intend to do island hopping there its a little farther and you might want to consider spending one night in el nido itself to visit it. Otherwise the resort offers great value for money island hopping in the area, where you have places all for yourself!
