It's been a pleasure to stay at Vickys guesthouse. Very friendly people, and a extra star for Brenda! It's right by the water and a very quiet and peaceful place. Great rooms as well. Great food and a very homely place.

Brenda is the best host! She and her family run this place; it is a gem of Palawan- that is for SURE! Brenda guides, Mama cooks, and others help make it an unforgettable experience. Incredibly scenic and right on the water, it was hard to beat for location. Not to mention very quiet, as it is the last settlement of...

This guesthouse is in a quiet part of Coron so is great if you want to get away from the bustle of Coron town. The place is simple but made fantastic by Brenda who runs it and is also a dive instructor. I was travelling with my partner and Brenda took us out to look for Dugongs (we saw a...

After the worst experience I have ever had trying to organise my trip with Dugong Dive Centre I was luck enough to find myself at Vicky's guest house.How lucky I was. As a professional underwater photojournalist and Photographer, I had booked flights to Coron to search for and photograph the Elusive Dugong. We were able to find it and get...

I'm glad I arranged my dugong dive trip with Vicky's Guesthouse. Brenda was very responsive to my inquiries. She was very attentive to everyone during the dive. I would definitely go back and do more dives with them.

We had a wonderful stay. Brenda and his family did everything for us. The good was very delicious. One day we went for Dugong snorkeling and we saw one. We will never forget these moments. I did my first dive with Brenda (DSD) and it was awesome. Brenda is such a good instructor. Just go to Vicky's Guesthouse and enjoy!!!...

Away from the bustle of Coron Town, Vicky's Guesthouse is the perfect getaway to chill and relax. Situated right on the water, we could board the guesthouse's banca boat directly. Snorkeling and scuba diving sites are nearby including fantastic wreck dives like the Kyokuzan Maru. Excursions and meals are managed by the guesthouse so other then showing up with a...

Thank you Hesham for this awesome review. Apologies I haven't been able to reply earlier. Still a lot of catching up to do. I have not even tried my new snazzy strobe yet. :) It's always nice catching up and hope to see you again in the near future... maybe June? :)

We stayed in Vicky's guesthouse for two nights and it was perfect. It's located in a quiet bay with no sounds of traffic, music or people. The rooms are basic, but comfortable, and the food is very good (homecooked by Vicky)! We went for the Dugong trip and were positively surprised by how friendly and curious the animals were when...

I wish we had escaped Coron Town and come here sooner. It’s the perfect “all-inclusive” getaway. Super relaxing, right on the water, amazing staff, new friends, local experience, decent food prepared fresh every day. Ok, it wasn’t really all-inclusive — we paid for the accommodation, activities, and food separately — but since we did it all though Vicky’s, it was...

Thanks Chris and Kim! We hope to see you again at the guesthouse. By that time, we would have new kayak paddles - to give Kim a better sun shade! :)

This is way better than Coron proper town. Brenda provides you with a nice, windy , breathtaking stay in her remote location. It is very cheap to kayak among the mangroves or simply rent a boat if you're 4 or more. There's lots to see , from wreck diving to dugong watching. My favorite place in Coron. I wish I...

“Check if there are other guests around, because you can get one of the three rooms with shared bathroom by 600 php and you'll not be sharing with anyone else - so, in practice, you almost get a private bathroom room by the price of a shared.”
