Location, staff, food, rooms, privacy, amenities,
Specifically that week they had issues with Generator so no electricity all day which meant no wifi. But we acknowledge it was due to that incident otherwise surely would had been perfect. Mosquitos!!!
Amazing setting, amazing staff especially Herwin, never stayed someone and be made so welcome. Would recommend this place to anyone.
I stayed for 3 nights in the honeymoon suite. There are only a small number of properties (though they're planning more) which are all so intricately and beautifully designed, built (from wood) and furnished. The rooms are spacious and the bed is large and comfortable. They also provide a helpful Handy phone to use during your stay. Vellago is situated on an island off the main coast (7 commando beach) giving a decent level of seclusion and a setting that is absolutely breathtaking. Particularly for breakfast (a delicious range of egg options served with a generous fruit platter and fresh juice.. on our room's balcony. We had Omelette and Eggs Florentine. It's one of the best hotel breakfast we've ever had)... and also for candlelit dinner on the beach. During our stay we also had a massage. This deserves special mention for being simply brilliant. The masseuse found our aches, tension and pain points as she scanned our bodies with her hands and combined a range of different techniques in tackling them. We both felt a million dollars after that! As for the staff; extremely friendly, fun and helpful - especially Irwin (who was fantastic) and Jay and the boat captain (who took us to and fro town every day, morning and night!).
You're on a beach which is part of Tour A (the most popular tour) so there is the daily stream of tourists that breaks the seclusion (unlike other Islands like Miniloc which restrict access). Being on an island also means that this is quite an expensive resort so expect to pay a premium for everything (food, massage, private tours etc.). Whilst the dinner was generally very good (especially the Lemon Tuna and seafood platter) the chicken dishes were a tad salty.
This is a beautiful place to stay with the most welcoming & accommodating staff possible. They all go above & beyond to provide the perfect holiday. Rooms have everything you need, even a yoga mat. Breakfast is lovely served each morning on your balcony. They set up an unbelievably romantic dinner on the beach for our anniversary & special breakfast & were accommodating to our vegetarian diet. Thank you all so much, best holiday.
Bar closes at 10pm & last boat back to hotel is 9:30pm. Have to settle into earlier mornings & earlier nights routine but it’s worth it for the best beach in Palawan & such top notch accommodation & care.
The breakfast and location absolutely awesome!!! Sipping the delicious coffee, watching the crystal clear water on the beach, enjoying the amazing mangoes and pineapples on the fruit plate was unforgettable.
