Miniloc Island is designed to feel a bit like a rustic Filipino coastal village while providing touches of luxury throughout. Reaching the island requires a 45-minute boat ride from El Nido affording views of Cadlao and Helicopter islands on the way.

There are eight room types on Miniloc. Garden and Garden Family Cottages are set back amongst the foliage and sleep three and four people, respectively. Cliff Cottages offer panoramic views of the resort and Bacuit Bay but to reach these four-person cottages, you'll need to climb a few stairs. Beachside Rooms look out toward the water and provide ready access to the beach. Water and Waterside Cottages and Seaview Rooms are built on stilts at the water's edge. The cozy Cottages sleep two while the more spacious two-story Seaview Rooms can sleep four. Deluxe Seaview Rooms overlook the bay and highlight Miniloc's commitment to environmental sustainability. Each of these rooms is fully solar-powered and outfitted with energy efficient lighting and fans.

All rooms are furnished with indigenous Filipino materials and some walls are covered in sawali, woven bamboo slats. Every room has a balcony and air conditioning. Full board is included when staying at Miniloc. Meals are served buffet-style in the Clubhouse Restaurant. Picnics and private dinners can be arranged.

Damsel fish, fusiliers, and other tropical fish fill the waters just off the shore making for easy snorkeling. A resident 1.5 meter jack fish is often spotted and a daily fish feeding brings schools of jacks. Day trips to neighboring islands for kayaking, snorkeling, or beach time are available along with diving and plenty of family-friendly activities.
