Wonderful location but disappointing management
The location is amazing with the most beatiful coral reef I've ever seen. We travelled with a baby and only when we arrived there they informed us about the problem with the water facilities. We would like to have been informed about that before the arrival to be able to decide it if we stay there or not, specially travelling with a baby and they already knew about that. Our bedroom was the last one in the beach near the jungle and the second night we have a rat inside the room that eat some stuff, we asked to move and there were no free room that night but the problem was the awfull answer of the manager "it is normal to have jungle rats and if you don't like it may be you should live in a 22th floor in Manila", fortunatelly they changed manners and apologized and the next day they moved us to another room. The staff didn't clean the room for several days, we asked for and the only excuse was that the staff was overloaded. We almost lost our returning flight because they decided to go directly by boat to the town instead of droping us in the middle (3,5 hours trip instedad of 2 hours). They dind't coordinate between reception and the office in the city. On the other hand the stuff in the restaurant and kitchen were really nice.

Overrated & disappointing resort
View during the day, staff, the quiet environment
First, They do not tell you that you have to pay P2500 for van & Boat transfer going to & from the resort. Total is P5,000 just to get there and leave! Their "free" transfer is at a very inconvenient time of 430pm (which means u arrive at the resort 6:30pm). I think for the price of the room this should already be free of charge, or included in the overpriced room charge. P5k+ for a small cottage with no electricity during the day and no airconditioning & no working private bathroom with freshwater. They also have to inform guests before booking the rooms that their "dam" or source of spring water is not functional. Imagine showering with saltwater in your room--because the other option using "fresh" water is outdoors, in a shared, public & makeshift shower area (like a cheap hostel) which is only working from 5pm-8pm. Had we known this--we would have never booked for this resort. Food is expensive, overpriced for the small portions and it's not even delicious. Sizzling squid was not sizzling, tomato salad was actually just tomato slices. Also, the caesar salad has cucumbers and cubed tomatoes (tasted like a weird greek salad). We had to request for plates and utensils ourselves. But since2hours away from the nearest restaurant you have no choice but to eat here. Im glad we only spent overnight in this "eco-resort" because i could not wait to go back to coron town and stay in a cheaper hostel with better accommodations and service (like Sea Horse Guest House). They also say they have wifi in public areas but this is not true. The only good thing I can think of about this place is their friendly staff. I'd like to personally mention Maria, who waived the return fee of P2500 and made it free, because we were already demanding a refund for the booking. I would never return here nor recommend this to other people. Based on my recent experience, Coral Bay does not deserve their rating & commendations.

Unspoilt Island
We arrived via boat, chasing the sunset behind this unspoilt island. Perfect place to unwind and go at your own pace and have the chance to reconnect with nature and the important things in life. Staff could not have been more helpful.

A silent resort
Coral Bay describes itself as a silent resort - one of the few left in the world. It is in an island 1 hour away from Coron and quite peaceful. No noisy videoke bars, no water sports activities involving machines and no loud people. Unfortunately due to its remote location some facilities which we normally expect from a resort are unavailable. Electricity is turned on only from 6pm-6am and an hour midday. There are no air conditioned rooms and the water supply is not very strong. Despite this it was a great vacation especially since we were aware of these facts when we booked the stay. The staff (especially Sheryl and Lucy) are very warm and accommodating!

Best place to relax away from home.
Location, size of the room, very quiet & relaxing
We're the only Filipino group during our stay & we had a really good time. From sunrise to sunset, we enjoyed every bit of our stay. + flexibility of mgt & staff. Very friendly & warm reception + boat ride going to & from the resort + island hopping with Kuya Bong + pancit bihon & spicy squid (we ordered more than 2x) + free breakfast & free coffee, tea + no electricity from 6am to 6pm (I give this a "plus" since we barely experience this nowadays. We are forced to go out of our room to breathe fresh air & appreciate the beauty of mother nature). - limited food from the menu (suggest to add grilled food) - no cold drinking water even during night time Can't think of any negative thing to say, cz we really enjoyed our stay here & we are already planning our next visit. Cheers!

Best vacation ever!
Peaceful, Eco friendly, best service
We went there as a group, from the moment we arrived until the day we left, we were very taken care off. The manager was very attentive to our needs and very helpful. Everyone in the resort was hospitable and very nice. If you want peace and quiet and one with nature, disconnect from the modern world and its fast pace, then this is the place you need to be. You will be rocked to sleep by the soft sounds of nature. You will eat fresh catch of the day from the sea. Be greeted every morning by the beautiful sunrise. Visit nearby islands, be amazed by the beauty underwater. It's so sad that we had to leave. Thank you so much to all the staff and the manager for taking care of us and for making our stay as wonderful as it can be. Will sure be back!
