Best laid back luxury and top service in El Nido
Cauayan was amazing, the best treat we’ve had this year. The Beach Villa was extremely comfortable, the service was excellent, the staff kind and attentive. The food was very tasty, we loved every minute and wish we could have stayed longer. The attention given to our anniversary and my birthday was very appreciated. Congratulations to all staff and managers for running this property so well and making us feel so welcome! Truly the art of laid back luxury and top service! We will be back! Maria & Roberto
