Upon arriving in Coron we were already ready to get out of the busy city filled with tricycles and streets smelling of exhaust. We even had reservations in town (at Coron Eco Lodge it was awful) and walked out even though it was prepaid. We knew we were going to dive and heard great things about the diving crew from...

The rooms were very well kept and comfortable. The wait staff were all very warm and accommodating from the moment we arrived. They were always willing to answer any questions we had about anything from island hopping to any tours. Risa did an awesome job at explaining how every tour would go. Arlene was very friendly and carried herself with...

Really nice little hotel on its own island. Good hearty breakfast each morning. Owners were absolutely lovely. Slightly annoying that you have to wait for the bus to get off the island and into town but it wasn't too much of a hassle. The bar they own in town was great too!

The hotel is comfortable and clean, we had a room in the lodge with AC and fan. Yes, as people said, the shower water isn't hot, but it wasn't a problem for us as in the afternoon/evening the water was warm and the weather is hot any way. The service and people working here are great, they are so nice...

We really enjoyed the location of our stay on a quiet island away from the hustle-bustle of Coron. Coron is nice to visit, to browse in the shops, to hike to the lookout and to have a meal, but returning to the island was always a pleasure after a day of snorkeling, island-hopping, etc. As with most things, there is...

A very shot boatride from coron, the rooms are simple with cold water, but beautiful view and clean. The best thing about this place is its nice people working here and great resturant/bar which was a social area. If the party of coron calls, its a 5 min boat ride. Its a little overpriced and without a beach or swimming...

Every hotel has its good or bad, just need to know what you will be getting, here is my experience for your reference: There are things which I like: 1, it is located on an island which is 10-15min by boat, which can always be arranged by hotel or Blue moon bar in town, can always deposit your luggage in...

This place could be fantastic, and the staff is why I have given it a 2 star review - without theme it would be one star. The issue is that the web site is somewhat disingenuous. The rooms are definitely not modern and there is no hot water provided - if you are going to charge the prices they charge,...

Could be a fantastic resort and got 2 stars because of the staff. Certainly not the cheapest and for what it pretends to be not very good.The rooms at best could be described as rustic, meaning there is nothing inside but a small double bed, a shower and a toilet. They sort of work but in the shower, half the...
