Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

5/5 this hotel is so cute! Their attention to detail is great, recommend spending a little more for the nicer rooms. At night they come around and each time bring you a night snack complimentary 🥹 They were sooo good. Most importantly the pool, Resturant and rooms were all super clean. People were super friendly too. Massage was fantastic, recommend you get one while you stay!!

Hotel's Favourite
The most guest oriented resort I have ever been. Since the welcome we found a super nice staff and plenty of smiling. The resort is very clean, 20 min walking to the main street or 5min by tricycle (30 php p/p). From the resort y can book any island hopping tour or if y wish a motorbike with same price y can find downtown. If y don't want to go for a tour y can enjoy the two nice pools and the kindness of the staff that offers y complimentary snacks, ice cream and one day we also had a free 15 min massage. Every day from 3 to 5pm in the restaurant area in front of the pool y can enjoy a different complimentary banana snack and drinks and from 5 to 7 y can have a cocktail happy hour on the roof top bar watching the sunset in a jacuzzi pool. Breakfast is also ok; the only thing that I suggest is to empower the wifi connection which is not everywhere good as needed.overall we were super satisfied and we strongly recommend this resort.

Best resort in town. Amazing sundowners on the roof terrace. Giant poolside dinner buffets. Very friendly staff. Sustainability in smart and award worthy architecture: The new part of the resort is constructed by using used freight container boxes We really enjoyed the perfectly balanced mixture of activities and relaxing.

The Funny Lion has an excellent rating and for good reason. This is one of the most special places we have ever stayed. The staff were so friendly and helpful but without being overbearing. The facilities are beautiful and clean and never overcrowded due to several different pool options and there is an amazing roof top car/pools for sunset. They really go above and beyond, leaving fresh juices in the room and a night time sweet treat! We would 100% stay again and recommend you book early to avoid disappointment because this is where you want to stay in Coron!!
