Peaceful Island Getaway!

Ambiance, Private Beach, Breakfast
Wished I stayed longer to really enjoy the beauty of this property. Good serving of American breakfast with homemade bread. My Seaview cottage is clean and inclued its own hammock where you can relax all afternoon. Bathroom was big also. Overall cleanliness of the place is great with the sea just steps away.

A Quiet Place to Relax

Great Staff, Excellent View, Good Food
I love the place. The staff were great and you would really feel like home. The rooms are nice and cozy. The only thing I have problems with is the electricity which normally runs from 6PM to 6 AM the next morning. But if you want a wonderful place to relax and disconnect from the modern world, this is the best place to unwind.

Feels Like Home

Excellent Customer Service, Great Food Seclection, The Best View
It was the best vacation. We really loved everyone. The staff was friendly and makes you feel really welcome. The view is stunning. My only issue is the electricity (runs only from 6PM to 6AM) and the poor wifi connection. I work online so it can be difficult for me to end my reports when I have no more laptop batteries and can't connect to the next. However, it still remains to be the best place to renew your spirit and enjoy a wonderful island life.

Really disappointed

location, view from room and very quiete place
Really disappointed about the food (too much choice and really bad quality) and the price of the transfer. Be carefull in avanced with the transfer. Othertwise the staff do minimum for a price that is not always justified. The only good point is location (very quiete and nice beach)

Diving OK but the hotel was a let down

It was Quiet
No air con, Bad smell from septic tank or the mangrove swamp at the back of the rooms,No sunbeds to relax and no beach to speak of. Would not recommend this hotel after three of the six nights we had booked we moved across t resort where the beach,reef and staff where exceptional.

Perfect getaway

Serene location, picturesque, friendly staff
I stayed at Coral Bay Beach and Diver Resort for 4 days and 3 nights in early March 2014. The resort is located in the idyllic Popototan Island and quite far off from the main Coron town. Warning: if you are looking for an island resort with an active night scene and five star/urban amenities (AC, hot shower, pool, spa, gym), go to Boracay/stay in Coron town/ or other high end resorts in Coron/Busuanga Islands. Coral Bay is a simple, serene well maintained resort with basic amenities. The island runs on a generator so the power is off between 6AM to 6PM. Wifi is available at the reception and dining areas, albeit limited - this didn't bother me at all as I chose to stay at the resort to relax and stay off the grid for a few days. Mobile reception for Smart telecom is limited to none - Typhoon Haiyan knocked off the Smart cellular tower in the island. All villas at Coral bay come with a hammock in the deck, for best views, pick the waterfront villas. The waterfront villas are about $65 to $75 USD a night - at Coral bay you get to see views that comes with a hefty tag price in other places in a reasonable, cost effective rate. Coral bay has its own house reef - its about 200 meters from the reception area. The water is crystal clear with rich and plentiful marine life. The dive center is well equipped. The owner, divemasters and the rest of the staff (office management, kitchen, housekeeping) are friendly, welcoming, and helpful.The resort has private boats for island hopping and has a speed boat for private transfer to and from the airport. The price for the speed boat transfer is a bit steep ($55 USD) but worth every penny as this gets you to the mainland in half hour as compared to the free, regular boat transfer that can take more than 2 hours. I highly recommend Coral bay and would stay here again. This is a little gem in paradise!

Peaceful hotel with a view!

Serenity, Food, Staff
Place was great! Stayed for one night. Unfortunately we weren't able to try diving because typhoon Haiyan was incoming. We'll be back again!

Genuine coral island experience

Location, food, environment.
This is a genuine coral island experience. If you are after a natural isolated diving resort with great training, and access to the best wreck diving in the Philippines, then this is it! If you prefer club med, then please read the resort conditions carefully to avoid disappointment! This is a remote site, with only water access, one of its attractions! We loved it and will certainly be going back soon.
