Awesome location, Wonderful Staff, Fantastic stay!
Our stay was simply awesome. The staff here are absolutely wonderful and just so friendly and accommodating. I really felt as if we became friends and the island felt like our second home for the 4 days we were there. We were travelling with our 1 year, 10 month old daughter and the staff did everything to accommodate us even helping entertain and play with our daughter. The food in the restaurant is really good. With a menu as diverse as Thai, Indian, Filipino, Korean and Italian, I wasn't sure if they could pull it off, but they did. The only feedback I have is that the deluxe room should include a kettle, some cups and cutlery... A fridge would also be great but, all in all, not a huge deal. The boat ride to Coron is only 5 mins, however we chose to spend each night in the resort restaurant and bar as not only is the food good but it's very reasonably priced! All in all a wonderful stay thanks to the awesome, friendly staff at Discovery.

First snorkelling holiday in Philippines
Being our first time in Philippines, Coron is definitely the best snorkeling choice with so many gorgeous coral reefs. All the staff of Discovery Resort were very friendly which makes our family of 6 stay a lot more pleasant. Although the food served in the only restaurant are delicious but having most of our 3 meals during our 7 days stay, the restaurant would perhaps consider increasing the food selection. Having a electric kettle in the room would be a nice touch to enjoy a hot drink sitting outside the room and enjoying the sea view. On the whole, all of us had a wonderful stay with Discovery Resort. Would highly recommend our friends to this resort:)

Fantastic!
A mix of island life with quick access to the town only about 10 minutes. Price is competitive with a very friendly staff! I would suggest to stay here if you want both an island experience and access to variety of food plus cheaper tour operators in the town

Needs a bit of work
Great two weeks, one week each with two groups of 3 friends each... Needs a bit of work on the plumbing and sewerage systems... That said the place IS in a developing tourism area of the Philippines and will become / is becoming better ... Better facilities at Busulang Airport e.g. WiFi.... will encourage development...

Over rated and not worth the money
The staff were excellent and the location is excellent.
The hotel is advertised as modern rooms, and this is not a fair reflection of the hotel. The rooms are basic, and not very clean. There is no hot water and you will get charged extra for additional towels. The food is OK, but they run out of lots of the menu, and it gets very boring... If you are heading to Coron, you need to bear this in mind. I believe it is overpriced and overrated. The dive centre is shoddy and not very professional, but the guides are good.

Home away from home
It's nice and quiet, away from the noise of the town, yet it's just a 5-minute boat ride if you need to go to town; value for money, very clean and well maintained
Very comfortable, relaxing, very nice staff.
