We really enjoyed our stay, the whole 'staff' is really kind (Risa & Co :-) ), the room is very clean, the cook is great... No negative point ! We also did Wrecks diving with Discovery Diving, which was maybe more expensive than we expected, but at least the dive master and the divings were just perfect. NB : Actually because of our flight delay we missed our 1st night at Discovery, but the booking was very kindly modified to let us stay one more night with no extra charge ! Thanks again ! (ok this is low season, but we had the same issue in the next hotel : IPIL Suites in El Nido, and we there just lose 1 night...) Thanks and see you again :-)

Suspect more organised when owner is present to keep them up to speed Boat trip to town is either fun or a pain dependent on your outlook Specialise in island hoping and diving Native cottages good fun Remember this is remote palawan Water electicity menus are aspirational You will either love it or hate it He would be better served keeping his eye on the hotel Staff are very friendly and love playing pool with the guests Good value and very different

Friendly staff but expensive for what it is

quiet, nice staff

It was ok. The rooms are clean and the staff are very friendly but it is quite expensive for what it is. I.e. no hot water; it is not really a dive resort they just call a local dive master up who arrives with sub standard equipment (leaky tanks, no depth gauge); the tours are expensive and they charge full price for small children too; and the food takes FOREVER. Seriously it takes 45 minutes to make one pancake! Coron is great for a few days snorkeling and diving. Watch out for deadly box jelly fish during wet season (we saw 4 in 3 days!). There are better value for money places in Coron.

Marifel K. Couples Philippines, May 21, 2013
Quiet surroundings, nice sunset view, slow service

Location is great since it's not in the middle of loud and crowded Coron town. Food is not bad but service needs to be greatly improved.

Some days were nice, some days could have been better. Food is good but could use a wider selection. It is a little bit more pricey compared to those in Coron town. Restaurant staff need some training, service was slow and most of the time you have to ask for basic stuff like table napkins, condiments or a glass for your drink. Cleaning needs to be specifically requested...as the basic thing they do is take out the trash from your room. Towels on the floor basically means = I want them changed! But apparently here, you need to tell them that verbatim...otherwise they will assume that you want to keep your towels. Boat taxis need to be booked well in advance if you don't want to wait for an hour! Diving was great with staff, a little bit more expensive compared to other dive shops but you get your money's worth. Wifi was too slow but I guess this is the standard in an island-town. Since electricity is not very stable in, it was a very good thing that the resort has their own reliable generator. Staff was very helpful in everything we needed...information about tours & flights and souvenir shops in Coron. Staff were really friendly. The sunset view is just stunning! I recommend adding a pool to the resort and investing in staff training.

Great diving, but poor value for money

Quiet location away from bustling Coron proper

Stayed in a native fan cottage, and native it was. No wardrobe in the room, only the trunk of a tree which cut-off branches served as hangers. Light switches were smudgy and seemed not to have been cleaned for ages. Towels and linen was stained , they should be able to buy new towels and linen and change it every once in a while. Most of the staff at the restaurant was unattentive (rather watching TV or chatting with each other) and slow. Had to wait 10 minutes before we got our ordered drinks. Taste and quality of food was good, though. Unfortunately, ressort only has small stretch of pebble bech, no pool available. On the plus side, hotel was a good base to go diving.
