Pawlan - El Nido Resorts Apulit or Lagan

Jump to last reply

Hi All - does anyone have any knowledge/experience of these 2 resorts? My husband and I are looking to go for 5 nights in Dec 2012. We'll be coming from Manilla and we'll be going back to Manilla to catch our flight back to the US.

We are looking for relaxation, under-stated luxury, water sports (ie: sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, etc...) and hiking/rainforests. We don't care much about night life and as long as we can get a good bottle of wine and fresh seafood, we are pretty happy as far as dining goes. We also love a long stretch of beach to walk/jog in the morning and/or early evening.

Which of these 2 do you recommend in terms of cost (bang for the buck), getting there, promotions/discounts, ambiance, feeling of "seclusion" from the real world, etc....also, is Dec a good time to go?

I know there's another even more luxurious property opening but I'm not sure it'll be ready in time for our visit.

If you have any other recommended resorts in the area, that's great too.

Thanks.
