Guest reviews for Matinloc Resort

5 out of 5
A beautiful, tropical getaway in the Philippines. Matinloc Resort is a nature lover's paradise. Gorgeous, scenic views and breathtaking blue waters. Friendly and attentive staff to serve your every need. This location, however, can be a bit challenging to navigate if you have mobility issues or a disability requiring ramp access.
