            Serene Place and Great location for Snorkeling”
            We stayed for 4days and 3nights with my wife and our 3-year old boy. We arrived at the resort Friday afternoon and to our surprise we are the only guest in our first two days in the resort, which is very good because as if we owned the whole resort for two days! The resort offers free use of small "bangka" that you can use for traversing the Balinsasayaw Garden Reef. The Garden Reef is amazing! the water is shallow and you can easily see the corals and colorful fishes swimming around. We brought with us our snorkeling gears and we really enjoyed the underwater views, we have encountered 3 different families of clown fish and there are garden of giant clams. As for the rooms, our room is ok we were assigned to room no. 1 , though at one point the water in the toilet and bath became a little muddy maybe because there was a hard rainfall the night before. It has air-conditioning unit and the interior is good very relaxing. The resort has hammocks and cabanas to enjoy for relaxation.

            Everything was great, but the food was terrible”
            We enjoyed our time here, especially being able to do wonderful snorkelling right off the beach. Beautiful sunsets, and great mango cocktails in the shade of the little cabannas on the beach! Overall it was a very pleasant stay and they were able to arrange really good tours for us. Our only complaint is the food, which is a problem for us as vegetarians - and you are stuck on the island. The food was really not to our liking, a bit too traditional (birds nest soup and deep fried mini fish with bones and all, etc!). We are vegetarian (but we do eat fish) which they were able to cater to..but you don't get options... but really the food was not enjoyable and one night I couldn't eat the food so I ate a box of oreos for dinner from their dusty shelf of american food!

            Location: abt 7 to 10 minutes boat ride from the coron town. Affordability: It can be average to above average. I.e. Tour package is above the median cost for tour package offered in coron town. The lunch to dinner package are affordable and taste good. Breakfast menu is limited and the cost is almost the same with lunch to dinner package. Quality -Services: awesome! Very helpful staff. Humble and attentive to your needs. -Facilities: Average. There are continous revitalization of facilities and development too. When checked in be sure to lock your room to avoid flying insects to get in. Overall, you cannot be wrong in choosing this resort. Basic needs are met here. Also, it is serene and peaceful.

            Should be much better”
            Quiet and secluded location with beautiful views and fantastic snorkeling right in front of the property. However, we did not have a good experience. Though meant to be a little rustic, which we are ok with, the room we were given simply was not acceptable. Dirty sheets, smell of sewage in the bathroom, and worse of all we found a rat running around. We asked for a different room, but could only be accommodated 1 out of our 3 night stay. Regrettably, we were forced to find another hotel. As it currently stands, Balinsasayaw falls short of minimum standards. The price is not that much different from some of the better hotels in town. Though it offers exclusivity, we didn't find it to be a reasonable trade off for the conveniences, access to tours, restaurants and competitive pricing you will find in Coron town. Balinsasayaw has so much potential. With the proper improvements to the property, I would recommend it for a short stay that offers something different.

            I would recommend this place for people who wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. There is no internet connection, cellular signal is just enough for calls and text/sms. You will have a great view of the Coron Island every minute of the day because it is just right there in front of you. There are things that can be improved to make the place perfect for a getaway. I hope they maintain the no internet connection because that is the purpose of having a holiday/vacation.

            Tucked away from the town and busy touristy life, this place is a haven for peole who just want to relax and have a unforgettable and priceless view of the famous rock formations of Coron. The staff are very accomodating and welcoming. As well as approachable. The facilities are okay, free paddle boat that can go up to their floating barge or CYC Beach. The only downside is the cleanliness going to the cottages. But all is well. You will not make a big deal out it when you're there

            Too many fundamental issues that need improving Much of the resort was a building site (or in need of repair). Rooms are basic, which is fine, however bathrooms are not designed for a high turnover of guests & use. Staff were terrible- at first I was sympathetic to them as they may not have received much guidance or training from managers, but after two days it was very clear their attitude was at fault- they had no interest in looking after guests or doing any work. We had to ask for rooms to be cleaned, the resort amenities were not looked after (blocked toilets, litter everywhere), the so-called restaurant may have well been self service. Staff only started cleaning the beach on the last day after several guests spent a long time picking up rubbish including plastic and glass. Location is great, but state of resort detracts.

            Are you looking for att quiet, nice place without a lot of people this is the place. We stayed for eight nights in a family villa and for us i was an amazing experience. All the staff at Balinsasayaw are very nice and helpful and we felt very cared for The food is great, it is a lot of food and there was no risk that we ever felt hungry. The location is perfect only 15-20min by boat from town . We went on one daytrip and an outside touroperator picked us up from the island. Amazing day with good food, snorkling and a lot of swimming. The only thing we missed was the wifi and especially the kids. We would love to come back and look forward to trying the big pool they are building ..

            The view from the resort and its cottages are the best. Even at full occupancy, you still get privacy. The beach is good for snorkeling and swimming, and they have stand up boards and kayaks for rent. Since I was traveling solo, they arranged for me to join a group tour for snorkeling and island hopping. The cottage I had was not luxurious, but for the price and the view, it's really good value for money. I would recommend this for people who prefer a relaxing vacation away from it all.

            Felt like babies being well cared for in the resort. Staff are friendly and always happy to help. No hassle booking tours and you can hire equipments for water sports, we even got our one for free from their easter egg hunt! Sweet! Their meals are definite value for money, didn't expect much but wow! Amenities and rooms could do some maintenance as there are lots of bugs and sometimes lizard droppings, but we are mostly out and about the resort as there is so much to do. If I could just reccomend that they get a better alcohol/wine list. Also, it's a pain to get phone reception and there is no wifi available.

            Solo Traveler Beware”
            You are very isolated from Coron when you stay here.. You can get to town at night, but it is not easy and there is a curfew from the hotel. I felt bad because I asked to go to town two nights, I had to pay for it too. Everything is extra inc dinner which you really have no choice in paying if you stay there. I did not enjoy the food. I had 3 breakfasts and 1 dinner. There are no options. You eat what they give you for dinner.. There were 2 english speaking staff. All were friendly and helpful though. The room was what I wanted.. Private/quiet. They didn't clean the room once though. I wanted peace/quiet but also wanted access to options and he city. If you want these things easily then do not stay here. This place is better suited for families or couples who don't care about those things. Also beware the airport transfer they arranged to pick me up was nearly an hour late, I only made my flight because it was delayed. It was very distressing. Wouldn't stay again
