Dahlmann from Denmark”
Just perfect place -you fill like in paradis - a place to relax and if you want to be active the free boat tours are all so good - the staff is accommodatin and so friendly - the food and driks are tasteful. Absolut excelent and to recommend !!!
Pros: no tv, weak wifi.. thats why u get to enjoy time with family and focus on nature. Cons: im a returning guest, back in the 90s, service families and staff are much warm and friendly. They dont hesitate to greet u. They were friendly to not only foreign guests but to locals/Filipinos too Choice or food selections and how they are portioned need to improve, big time! Especially if people are willing to pay the price the resort is asking for. Improve the food please!
Beautiful place, but needs some love”
The beach is private and easy for kids to snorkel on. I like the simple rooms without WiFi and TV. They are cool, even without Aircon. However, the pool facilities and sports are in desperate need of some simple maintenance and they have some odd rules. You can’t order a cocktail in the pizza restaurant and have to get it yourself (even if staff aren’t busy).
DO NOT EVEN THINK OF STAYING HERE!!! IT WILL BE THE WORST DECISION YOU WILL EVER MAKE!!! ”
Worst vacation I have ever had and it was all because of this God forsaken place. I won't get into the details because I am still trying to forget my 4 day nightmare of an experience here. I just want to warn other people to stay far away from this overpriced dump of a resort. They should close this dump and never reopen it again.
PERFECT RESORT for Couples!”
This is my 2nd time to visit Cocobeach, the 1st time was last 2004 during college days and my latest was last April 2017, and I must say the resort has improved a lot in terms of the lobby, the dining area, the entrance to get to your cottages. Thumbs up! We had the Hilltop deluxe cottage room number 77 which is above the mountains so their's a 5 to 10 min walk from the beach up in the mountains and it just gives you magnificent feel of nature, you will be surrounded by trees, flowers, once you get to the top the cottages are postcard perfect even the balcony of the rooms, it gives you perfect seaview, perfect for couples and if you want to relax. We never had any issues with the water in the shower, except the water was a little bit salty and it made my skin a little tight and dry, i would suggest bring your own soap and shampoo because they only provide a sample size which is not enough. My only cons is that you might experience a 5-10 min blackout which is not a big deal
Pros: beautiful garden, away from other resorts, for kids beach at low tide is a great rock pool/nature experience, food good for Philippines. Staff are very good, but struggle with special requests. Cons: beach is rocky and so good to swim shoes. Overall resort is looking a little tired and things broken 1 year ago are still broken. Owner’s need to do some maintenance, which wouldn’t cost much!
One of the better Puerto Galera Resorts”
Just an overnight stay but, coco beach was one of the better resorts i've stayed at in puerto galera (and there've been a few!). But, at approx AUD$100 a night it's out of my budget-i only stayed there because of my agoda points.
You can only get here by boat. This is quite straightforward. Go to Muelle pier and get a boatman to take you to Coco beach. They all know it and it costs 250 pesos. The resort is primarily frequented by Danish tourists on a package deal which leads to an odd atmosphere. In the evening it is very quiet. Does Denmark close down at 10.00pm? The food here is very good and there are 4 restaurants. The prices are good too considering you are a captive market. One thing I'm suprised hasn't been mentioned is that there are a LOT of steps. Some bungalows are quite high up and take some effort to get to. They do have a real jungle feel to them.I wouldn't stay for more that 3 nights as you could get a bit "stir crazy" as you are cut off from the rest of the world.
Coco Beach Island Resort is EXCELLENT! Although the regular rooms are a bit dark, the entire experience is superb! Although it is a bit isolated, it is the best place to be in Puerto Galera. We found a nice mix of foreigners and Philippinos. The morning free boat trips are wonderful. And the walk out of the back of the property to the Laguna beaches was beautiful . The snorkeling around Puerto Galera was better than El Nido and off of Panglao. We spent 3 nights there, which was just right for us.
Peaceful & relaxing”
The hotel and surrounds were a pleasant surprise! The staff make you feel very welcome. The huts were quite simple, but adequate. No TV in the room was not missed, and with the tropical climate the lack of hot water didn't bother either. The gardens, beach and swimming pools all made for a very nice stay. I would recommend and even go back again.
very much intersting place”
Guards are very helpful. Receptionists are very excellent. I was received with a nice welcome and helped immediately to get my room. Room is wide enough. Facing the garden but beach is just behind the room. Room is so clean. Wide bed. Satellite TV. Telephone line. Service to the room. Bath is so clean. Tidy. Hot water is not enough as the water heater depends on solar cell energy and some time there is no hot water at all. Hot water and air conditioning and tv are available only on the Heritage rooms only, all other types of rooms are with no hot water or air-condition or tv. Our agoda reservation was with the other type of the rooms and we had to pay for upgrading to Heritage room type. The heritage room is not provided in the agoda reservation. Internet is available in the room and reception area and restaurant but it is a very week connection that you cannot download a single document or a youtub file. It is just enough for reading and sending emails. There is a swimming pool. Garden is wide and well arranged. Has a nice restaurant. Cooking and food is so delicious. There are available transportation to the attractions and markets. boat service is available on call outside the resort infront of the beach. There is a specific family living in their home in the resort who is assigned for your service completely including the housekeeping and luggaging and to resolve all your problems and direct you to what ever tourist spots you like to go and avail you with boat transportation. I utilized the resort transport from Manila airport to Batangas port and then ride the resort boat direct to the resort. It costed me around 10,000 pesos because it was private transport. On my way back, I utilized the resort public boat back to Batangas port and then by van to Manila with only 800 pesos.
Perfect place to chilax and commune with nature. You should not miss snorkling at the coral garden. This is haven to diver enthusiast. Try to join their 101 activities such as table tennis, darts and others to complete your day.
We arrived this resort little late. Hotel staff very helpful and friendly. Ask for a free upgrade and was giving this already. The room was up in mountain and with azaming views. Just one thing no hot water. If back in this area would stay here again and would tell me friends to stay here.
Good but Good thats all ”
I loved the room and beach but not how I had to wait an hour and 15 mins for the boat after I checked out .
Disappointing service ”
Place needs proper trained staff. It's really disappointing. On arrival the told us we aren't allowed to take towel from the room to the pool and that twirls are provided at the pool area. We made our way to the silence pool. It's was from our room a 15 min climb up. As we arrived the staff told us there aren't any towels. It took us 30 min to explain that we aren't allowed to bring our own towels to the pool and that we been told here are some. The staff answer was that we should get down 15min walk. Get pool towels and then climb up 15min again. After arguing with us he finally agreed to find a solution and to get us some teils organized. It took almost 1h. At wait all the time we got hungry. Se we asked if we can order some food. The stay handed us over a menu. We pick what we wished to have and ordered it at the same staff that gave us the menu. But to our surprise he told us that the kitchen is closed. On my answer why he gave us then the menu then I'm still waiting. On my question if he can call the other restaurant to bring something up he just told us no. We have to go down 15min, wait for our order 30min and then walk back uphill with our food. Ridicules So we skipped the pool and went down to the resto to get something to eat. With the food I ordered an ice blended drink. As it arrived I asked for a straw. The answer was we don't have plastic straws. I explained to the staff that I didn't asked for a plastic straw. I just asked for a straw. For example like that one inside the menu where I ordered my drink from. A paper straw. The answer was they don't have paper straws. So I tried to explain a bamboo straw would be fine too. And again the answer was they don't have bamboo straws. Now I was really surprised. I pointed out that the souvenir shop 5m away owned by coco beach is selling bamboo straws then why does the restaurant doesn't provide any? The whole resort is out of bamboo but not even one straw for guest drinks is provided. He was so nice and
The best place to relax is in Coco Beach! Its simplicty will not stess any ine out, instead, will ge”
the absence of TV, airconditioning sytem in our kubo, and absence of refrigerator, plus there is. No wifi in the room, made us more inyimate and gave us, couple, enough time to talk and listen to one another. Just the perfect place to be for us after a week a hard work!
NEVER TOOK the TRIP but liked the SERVICE”
Hi, i would like to thank you all for changing my trip earlier, however since my kid was sick i couldn't make it. since i was told that i cannot change my dates again i couldn't request again for change in dates. However i would like to thank for accommodating my changes previously. Thank you Good service !!!!
This place is a paradise! A great place to take a break from the busy (and polluted) city life and relax. It's a shame we only stayed for a night so we didn't get a chance to try the activities. We'll definitely go back an stay longer.
