      Lovely getaway”

      Friendly staff, delicious food, value for money! Had my first scuba dive (I have no certification but they offer a 30min ‘Discovery Dive’ which was great. For 900pesos they can bring you via boat to snorkel in 1) coral ‘garden’ and 2) shallow boat wreck. We brought our own snorkel masks but rented their fins. Awesome view, starry starry nights. I even saw a shooting star!

      Cozy island stay perfect for water activities”

      We enjoyed our 4-night stay in chindonan! Beautiful island resort to unwind and scubadive. Also amazing housereef perfect for snorkling, right from the shore. The rooms had a beautiful view but could need a little facelift, especially the bathroom. Staff were very welcoming and overall the whole island had a warm community feel. Delicious home-style food. Scuba instructors were professional and also daytrips beyond diving were easily managed from the resort. After getting engaged during stay, the owner offered us wine for our celebration. What a beautiful gesture, which we valued much! Thanks for a memorable stay!

      Best resort for divers and Perfect experience!! Love this resort!! Will definitely come back!!”

      This time in Coron Island I stayed in 3 resorts and Chindonan is the best! I will definitely come back to Chindonan Dive Resort! Couldn't enjoy it more.... My mom is 60 year old and is a vegetarian but she loves this resort because the people are super friendly and very supportive whenever you have any request. The food is really amazing at Chindonan and also it has great diving instructors, diverse activities of fair prices, customized services... It's perfect for divers and snorkelers! It's also an eco-friendly resort which respects and lives in harmony with nature. The location is very convenient to do island hopping too! highly recommended!!

      The best place we had in our trip”

      The staff is very helpful and sympathetic. Everyone makes you fell at home what you’re not because you’re in paradise. The transfer was perfectly organized, 1 hour navigation in bangka from Coron city. We were welcome by a drink and had the opportunity to go out directly to an island hopping tour. breakfast are simple but good. The dinner is served at 6:30 and always excellent. In between a lunch/snack menu can fulfill what you need for drink and eat. We had a cottage posted just over the main building where from we enjoyed the view and the calm. We just heard the wind breezing trough the trees. It’s ecologically managed why you sometimes have electricity break. Whatever the WiFi is really good when electricity is provided. We can only recommend this place where we had great time.

      Resort is well designed and managed. Ideal for a 3-4 night stay. Staff were brilliant- resort team were very attentive, dive instructors are very informed and excellent teachers. Rooms are spacious & comfortable. Only comment would be to ensure that all the bungalows have A/C.

      My husband and I just returned from a three night stay at Chindonan, and we can't rave enough about our time there. The food was delicious, the location is perfect as it's super close to all the wrecks for scuba diving. The dive staff is professional and friendly and safe, and the wait staff are very attentive and sweet. We will DEFINITELY be back!!!

      Diving paradise ”

      Diving spots are fantastic but note that the "dive master" they have is incredibly rude and not educated at all.. he doesnt give you any information or story about the places you are about to go. Plus he seems unpleasant and not happy with his job which give you a very weird mood.. the hotel is ok no electricity during the day which can understand because is an island. Food is great. But i wouldnt stay here again. I left a day before my check out

      Amazing! Truly Paradise!”

      We spent great time in Chindonan, really loved it! It is quiet almost as a retreat center, there is nothing to do except tasty food and snorkeling/diving and billiards, there is noone to disturb you except birds and wildlife. There is no beach but so beautiful corals and fishes! I have never seen hundreds of parrot fishes hunting for food! So this place is definitely a heaven for couple on love, writer, artist or meditator who seeks silence, passionate reader and someone who really enjoy company of himself. This was exactly what we looked for! Thanks for amazing place, Pier & Pier! :)

Enjoyed my Stay in this resort as i was able to regenerate for a couple of days! Breakfast & dinner was good, however, food during lunch has limited choices. Hopefully, all rooms should have aircon.😊

      Wonderful island, very friendly staff, amazing dinner .... BUT if you expect .... - fan cooled room for sleeping - working Wifi or signal for calls - warm water in the shower - water pressure to be able to wash your hair - educated dive instructors - desk in your room as stated - electricity during the day - a fridge or safe in the room - beach towels Then you are wrong in that resort, as all this ... you won't get. No electricity during the day, no warm water, no internet, no cell phone signal, no water pressure to be able to have a shower, no educated dive instructors ... If you don't need all of that ... you will like it :)

      Chindonan Dive Resort: 3n”

      Calm clear water for snorkeling in healthy coral; Quite outstanding dinners including fresh seafood and creative salads; well-made cocktails; roomy, clean rooms with a view; free kayak use; Safe spring water. Cold showers, part-time power and hillside steps did not really bother us. Quiet and more efficient ceiling fans in bedroom and better Internet facilities would greatly enhance comfort. Transfer logistics take time and a sense of adventure. Flight delays up to 4 hours might thwart connections. Be prepared to ask for equipment and advice or you may miss opportunities. If you can waive a white sand safe swimming beach with lots of fish, then all in all Chindonan offers a peacefully remote and reasonably classy stay of very good value.

      expect to be detached yet to be pampered by nature”

      The chindonan Duve resort was a surprise. We didn't expect that it will be that peaceful and quiet. Our stay was really what we needed to re-energize and recuperate ourselves after a tough mountain adventure from Bicol. But aside from that, Coron is unique, with the fantastic beaches we visited . It is nature at its best. Chindonan location is indeed strategic, close to the wrecks and to interesting beaches to visit. Our room was very comfortable and I love waking up to have a tea in the balcony and just staring at the sea!! (unfortunately our room 8, was close to the housekeeping resident, and there was a day we woke up early by their morning rituals. In anycase, they immediately tamed down as soon as they were told.) The staff are all friendly and receptive to all our requests. The only surprise was all the entrance fees to visit the beaches which are valid if only there were also official receipts given back.... The only downside of the place perhaps are the choices for breakfasts and Lunch. I hope they soon can improve on this. Dinner was always good and interesting. We truly enjoyed our stay , moreover after seeing what Coron town has to offer-- one must stay and take refuge In Chindonan Dive resort!

Amazing natural beauty everywhere you look, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is just the best. Fantastic snorkeling right in front of the resort, with sea horses! I'm a bird lover, and I was thrilled with all the gorgeous, exotic birds flying around. The food was wonderful, and what a view from the dining area! I love everything about my stay and I look forward to visiting again!

      the service, the diving facilities, the location

      While it might be inconvenient for other people to not have electricity during certain hours of the day, this was perfect as it forced me to stay out of my room and enjoy the beautiful views and talk to the lovely people of Chindonan island. The staff was friendly and it was great to have an open kitchen for patrons to watch the preparation of the food. Nikolaj, the dive instructor is friendly and enthusiastic and very helpful to newbies like myself. The reefs and views were stunning and the fact that the resort had its own natural water spring was wonderful. The birds and the quests were so relaxing and I definitely recommend kayaking around the island. The mangroves are so peaceful and the water is absolutely perfect. I didn't get to see one of their famous seahorses but I certainly saw so many other things. This is an eco resort done right and the management should be so proud for having created an eco friendly and peaceful place to go diving.
