The staff at Apts exceeded our expectations. From Gary to Bong to security guards to housekeeper to everyone in between…. they made us feel like family. First off the unit is immaculate! We stayed on two other islands and in comparison the staff is more than 10 stars. The location is ideal as you are right in town near bars restaurants and all that El Nido is known for!!! We took advantage of the APTS island tour/speed boat excursion. Do not hesitate. You MUST take the hotel’s private excursions! The captain of the boat and his crew were phenomenal! No words can describe the meal they provided on the tour in an exclusive location. We are two couples from CA and expected the best and we got that and more. This was the highlight of our entire two-week Philippines island trip!!! Book this and bring your friends. It’s the absolute perfect stay. Thank you to Garry and the APTS staff and crew…. we enjoyed and appreciated…. and you know….all you did for us! Hugs and kisses from California!!! – Julie, Big Lagoon, January 2020
