expect to be detached yet to be pampered by nature
The chindonan Duve resort was a surprise. We didn't expect that it will be that peaceful and quiet. Our stay was really what we needed to re-energize and recuperate ourselves after a tough mountain adventure from Bicol. But aside from that, Coron is unique, with the fantastic beaches we visited . It is nature at its best. Chindonan location is indeed strategic, close to the wrecks and to interesting beaches to visit. Our room was very comfortable and I love waking up to have a tea in the balcony and just staring at the sea!! (unfortunately our room 8, was close to the housekeeping resident, and there was a day we woke up early by their morning rituals. In anycase, they immediately tamed down as soon as they were told.) The staff are all friendly and receptive to all our requests. The only surprise was all the entrance fees to visit the beaches which are valid if only there were also official receipts given back.... The only downside of the place perhaps are the choices for breakfasts and Lunch. I hope they soon can improve on this. Dinner was always good and interesting. We truly enjoyed our stay , moreover after seeing what Coron town has to offer-- one must stay and take refuge In Chindonan Dive resort!

Paradise Found!
The snorkeling, the view, the peaceful relaxation and bird-watching
My stay at Chindonan Dive Resort was just perfect! If you're looking for a beautiful refuge away from the city, this is the place for you. Amazing natural beauty everywhere you look, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is just the best. Fantastic snorkeling right in front of the resort, with sea horses! I'm a bird lover, and I was thrilled with all the gorgeous, exotic birds flying around. The food was wonderful, and what a view from the dining area! I love everything about my stay and I look forward to visiting again!

the service, the diving facilities, the location
While it might be inconvenient for other people to not have electricity during certain hours of the day, this was perfect as it forced me to stay out of my room and enjoy the beautiful views and talk to the lovely people of Chindonan island. The staff was friendly and it was great to have an open kitchen for patrons to watch the preparation of the food. Nikolaj, the dive instructor is friendly and enthusiastic and very helpful to newbies like myself. The reefs and views were stunning and the fact that the resort had its own natural water spring was wonderful. The birds and the quests were so relaxing and I definitely recommend kayaking around the island. The mangroves are so peaceful and the water is absolutely perfect. I didn't get to see one of their famous seahorses but I certainly saw so many other things. This is an eco resort done right and the management should be so proud for having created an eco friendly and peaceful place to go diving.

Nice location but so over priced
Snorkling, location, local staff
We stayed two nights here but wish we could have left after one. Yes the Snorkling was great and the location was nice but for the money.....no way. My partner and I were given two separate beds which seperated as soon as you got Into them. The bathrroom door did not shut. Awkward. I guess we were lucky though as my friend didn't even get a door on hers. Or any curtains so her privacy was no existent. The shower had old used soap in it and our 'spring water' from the taps and shower was brown for over half a day. The water then completely stopped so no shower or toilet and no one offered to move us to an empty room. When asked if we would get a discount for the inconvenience we were told no. I would expect this from a one star. Not a 3. No air con in rooms just a noisy fan and as there is no power from 7am till noon so the room gets incredibly stuffy. The resturant however was good. Nice food and the Filipino staff were all lovely. No complaints there. We just wish the manager had the same attitude. He just wasn't bothered. Considering they have been there for 6 years the rooms were bland and lacked charm and the resort itself was full of concrete.

Couldn't ask for more!
Location is excellent- beautiful house reef, stones throw from wreck diving and world class snorkelling.
Very professional owners and friendly staff. Delicious meals, cold beer and location that leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. We cannot wait to return. Thank you, Per and Per!

Amazing snorkelling
Snorkelling, beautiful room, friendly staff
We loved our stay at Chindonan Island Resort. The rooms are huge and very clean with sea view. Staff is friendly, helpful and ways around to chat to and get advices and tips. Amazing snorkelling just at the front of the resort and even better just 10 minutes by kayak which you can borrow for free. With the free transport you can start relaxing as soon as you land. Would recommend to everyone.

A breath of fresh air
The people - were very accommodating, service is personalized; the location - really in the heart of nature with its snorkelling site; value for money - food and drinks are reasonably priced
It was really a breath of fresh air for me and my family- it was a great experience to be amidst nature. We enjoyed the staff were all friendly and accommodating. Food serving is more than sufficient-nothing short of a home-cooked meal. Best thing about this is that it is very affordable compared to other resorts we stayed in.
