Relaxing, lazy and peaceful

Staff friendliness, great beach view, waking up to sunrise in bed
8.3
We had a very relaxing stay which was perfect because doing nothing but swimming and chilling was all we were aiming for! Bantayan Island is the perfect getaway from the city's hustle and bustle!

Quaint beach front resort

Staff- extremely helpful and kind. Location- on the beach.

This is was a wonderful little resort located right on the beach. The staff was overly friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and nice, with a decent bed and very spacious. Water pressure not the best, but giant bathroom nonetheless. The restaurant was decent, but I'd suggest venturing out a block up the street to Cou Cou or the other restaurants on the main street. We did a spa treatment, which was very nice. We also did the excursion to the Virgin Island, which was nice, nothing special though. Internet had an awful connection, but I was on holiday and rarely touched my phone.

Nice staff, rooms were large, but shower was poor, either too cold or too hot

i definitely love this resort! i was stuck by the beauty of the beach. the room was a plus plus! really nice! the resort is best for couples. even though i stayed there with my friends, i will go back again for sure! the staff are really nice and accommodating! everything is worth the price. i can't wait to go back!
Restaurant Tip: The resort's restaurant closes at 8PM but there are restaurants nearby like 5 mins. walking distance.

Excellent service!

excellent service, romantic decor

there were 6 of us, so 2 of us shared a beach suite while the other 4 shared a 2 bedroom villa with living room. the beach suite was nicely facing the beach and had a more spacious bathroom. it was also cooler as it was enclosed. the villa we had was directly above the check-in lobby and also faced the beach.. each suite and villa had a balcony with sun chairs and a dining table for you to have your breakfast in the morning if you pleased. the rooms were less cooling as compared to the beach suites as the ceiling of the villa was an open concept thus the cool air was not enclosed in the room. there was an in-room mini bar, hair dryer and safe, and the drinks were reasonably priced. we had the massage there twice, once out on the sun-bathing area's massage hut facing the sea, and the other time in our room. it was php450 each time. on one of the nights we had the dinner seafood buffet in the hotel at php395 each, which featured scallops, bbq pork chops, chili crabs, calamari, etc. the toilet lights were a little dim, and we didn't get any hot water from the showers while we were there. on both nights there were brown-outs, but i think its quite a common things on the island! arlene and her staff were most helpful and very hospitable, friendly, and would do anything they could to try to make your stay a memorable and comfortable experience. as a person who is very particular about service, i have to say arlene and her team won me over with their hospitality during our stay. if we have a chance to travel again to the philippines, we would most definitely come back to coral blue oriental and spend a longer time there. we would definitely recommend coral blue oriental to everyone!
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: - at the entrance of the hotel there was a small convenience store owned by the lady living in the hut next to it. do not hesitate to knock on her door or call out to her if you require something, she's lovely too. - do walk out and venture to Santa Fe town and try some of the restaurants there. we had the best pork sisig throughout our 9-day stay in Philippines at Bantayan Island. - there is a guy who goes round selling Balut on a bicycle with a basket in front. he only goes around late at night, perhaps some time after 10pm? and he will call out "Balut! Balut!" (not for the faint-hearted) - we walked along the beach and found a guy who arranged our trip to Virgin Island for us. the boat rental along with the boatman and guide (Jhun) was php800, island fee for 6pax was php600 (we were told its php500 for a group of 5, and php150 for every additional person. Do tell the guide/boatman what you would like to eat there, they would be happy to go to the market to buy you fresh poultry & seafood, and upon reach Virgin island, while you're snorkelling, they would bbq grill your food at the cottages there (with all the other guides belonging to other travellers), and it'll be ready just in time for you to eat after your snorkel)

Great Rooms, Not So Great Staff

Really nice rooms and pretty view

i loved the rooms but everything was overpriced. the food and drinks take forever to be served and the food wasn't very good. it was burnt and the drinks weren't that great although the first drinks were free. they charge pesos per head for island hoping and 350 pesos for bicycle rental, while i met a very nice and honest tour guide at the port, named kolot that found us motorbikes for rent for only 300 pesos and island hoping for only pesos for all 5 of us. if you go to bantayan island, it is well worth giving kolot a call @ and just give him a good tip because he is very honest,helpful, and has a permitt to give tours. the staff at coral blue also scolded him for taking their business and i didn't appreciate that either. and one more thing was that it took almost 30 minutes for them to check us out a figure up the bill. not too professional.

Great Accomodation, Bad Service

Great Rooms
6.3
It was only the Manager and the guy who fetched us in the port who really attended to our needs the entire time. All the rest were either rude or did not know what "QUALITY CUSTOMER SERVICE" truly meant. Never mind that the place is a bit pricey, we expected quality service out of our money's worth.
Travel tip: Expect a lousy service from the staff. Call the manager should you have any concerns that need to be addressed.
