this is a fantasy trip for me.

price are good, environment is good, under water is good.
I love this island, hotel, the staff are all good and lovely. especially the diving instructor Omar and the waitress who has beautiful sound. I love this isolated island and probably I will be back for visiting them again . Their score actually more than 8.2, I will place 8.9. But if food choice can be more that would be perfect... it's too boring.

The Best

Staff, Honesty , The Dock Bar

El Rio Y Mar - in need of a comeback

The location, the staff, and the isolation
El Rio Y Mar had 30% occupancy when we were there in mid-March. While the hotel is in a beautiful river and sea setting, and the staff are wonderful - the hotel has a serious problem with providing value for money. You get a small allocation of water - and have to pay for more. The portions are super small - the size of the fried calamari appetizer is exactly 4 calamari slices - but there is a note that you can ask for more if you want to. Who would? The dive shop is gouging people - you pay for each dive, for the boat (by distance!) and for equipment - about double what you'd pay elsewhere. Drinks are more expensive than elsewhere. Perhaps the management could experiment with being generous and get more guests (the todo incluyo concept in Mexico and Central America works wonderfully well) - and this way their dedicated employees could keep their jobs. I doubt that by gouging very few guests will make up for the revenue that a full hotel would bring.

Wow what a spot on earth

Location peace view
Fantastic experience. Great view of the sea, wonderful staff. The whole staying was just great. Staff was amazing from the pick up from the airport to the warm welcoming and the goodbye. Room overlooking the sea. Peaceful and romantic place. Palawan is just a paradise. We just did not want to leave. Make sure you do the Coron tour.
