Gorgeous Property and View
What a beautiful resort! The location and view is to die for. The property is on a hill overlooking the water and islands. The sunset is picture perfect. The Jooglo 2 Villa we stayed is of Balinese style. Our family of five felt we were transported to Bali. We enjoyed the ocean from our balcony. The crew and customer service are excellent. Kudos to Sarifa and Angy for the warm welcome from the front desk and for helping us book the private van and island tour. The restaurant service and food are excellent too. Thanks Clark and Royge! Highly recommend Karuna when visiting El Nido.

By far the best Resort we have ever stayed at in the Philippines. Everyone talks about the steep hill.... the problem isn't the steep hill. It is the 10000 cheeseburgers you ate in the two weeks before meeting the hill. BUT - there is a call button at the bottom push it and wait for them to get you! Don't skip this place. You won't regret it. We ate for 5 days (no alchohol) for 150 bucks... and the food was spectacular. I even trusted the water (sort of). Anyways - have fun and go to Karuna!

6/10 Good

The place is not easily accessible to the main road. I know the villas are in a cliff but hard to go up and down to go to main road. They have a tricycle to bring you down to the main road . We were told that coming back up to the villa we have to use the intercom at the bottom of the cliff entrance and they will send a tricycle to take as up. We came back at 9:30 pm and the intercom was not working. My husband and I have to walk up in darkness. It was kind of scary. We were short of breath when we reached the front desk. The receptionist on duty said they did not hear anything that maybe the intercom run out of battery. She did apologized and she is really nice . I was not upset with her but I was upset with the situation. I will not recommend Karuna . I will recommend Maramegmeg resort.

We stayed in Joglo 2 for twelve nights and it was honestly the nicest place we have ever stayed. The attention to detail in these villas is beautiful. They are well thought out and very spacious, and the view is spectacular. We made sure we were home to watch the sunset from the balcony every evening. The landscape gardening around the property is a beautiful mix of organised jungle! It is a bit of a climb from the main road, but we had a 125cc scooter, which had no problem carrying us both up the driveway. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Stay for one night, stay for one month; you will love it!
