A silent resort”
Coral Bay describes itself as a silent resort - one of the few left in the world. It is in an island 1 hour away from Coron and quite peaceful. No noisy videoke bars, no water sports activities involving machines and no loud people. Unfortunately due to its remote location some facilities which we normally expect from a resort are unavailable. Electricity is turned on only from 6pm-6am and an hour midday. There are no air conditioned rooms and the water supply is not very strong. Despite this it was a great vacation especially since we were aware of these facts when we booked the stay. The staff (especially Sheryl and Lucy) are very warm and accommodating!

Remote and quiet heaven”
Friendly, remote and peaceful
The resort is a great place to getaway from the hustle and bustle of a city or town. The resort is located at a remote island and only this resort in the island. However, there is still enough to do if you want some activities. Great hikes on the island to have a brilliant sunset/sun rise view and to other parts of even more remote beaches. You can also scuba dive or snorkel nearby the resort - which you can swim to. It has a beautiful coral site. You can also walk/hike 45 mins to a village and greeted by extremely friendly villagers (a must do if you are staying at this resort). We received warm greetings upon our arrival by one of the owner. It feels like I arrived in Fantasy Island! He explained about the facilities on the resort and set our expectations right. No power after 6am, no air-cond, no hot water, wifi connections not stable and it may take about 30-45 mins to get your dinner after you order. Although these sound like a downside, I actually didn't mind any of them. It is very breezy at the resort so it's cool enough without aircond and it didn't feel uncomfortable at all in the room. Food is better than I expected and I am not surprised having to wait long for food especially when the resort is full during the New Year eve holiday. Wifi connection is unstable but I expected this being in a remote island - connection is much better on the hills or north part of the island facing South China Sea. Overall I enjoyed my stay but if you are looking for a place with air-cond, shops, wifi and convenience, you may as well stay in town.

Feels Like Home”
Excellent Customer Service, Great Food Seclection, The Best View
It was the best vacation. We really loved everyone. The staff was friendly and makes you feel really welcome. The view is stunning. My only issue is the electricity (runs only from 6PM to 6AM) and the poor wifi connection. I work online so it can be difficult for me to end my reports when I have no more laptop batteries and can't connect to the next. However, it still remains to be the best place to renew your spirit and enjoy a wonderful island life.

Great Staff, Excellent View, Good Food
I love the place. The staff were great and you would really feel like home. The rooms are nice and cozy. The only thing I have problems with is the electricity which normally runs from 6PM to 6 AM the next morning. But if you want a wonderful place to relax and disconnect from the modern world, this is the best place to unwind.

Nice spot, but management needs improvement”
We were 4 people occupying 2 cabins. The cabins are great and clean. Can't do anything about the weather when the wind dies down at night except turn on the fans or a/c, but when it's breezy outside, it's so much more comfortable (and eco-friendly). The staff are friendly, if not shy. It's most likely due to language barriers, but we think also out of fear from the owner. We found out later that they are not being treated by the owner fairly. The kitchen staff walked out one day and the rest had to pitch in to serve the guests breakfast. There were higher winds than usual the 4 days we were there, so incredibly, there was never any fresh seafood. Now, I understand that it's hard to get fresh fish when the weather doesn't cooperate, but it was very unfortunate that there is not enough planning to stock the fridge with provisions. We went island hopping and we had no choice but to order really awful sandwiches from the kitchen to pack for our lunch. We never had the option to contract the boatmen to get us some fresh seafood to cook for us on each island stop. This was the only island vacation I've had that did not have seafood! We were surrounded by so much water! The kitchen was also always running out of things--even fresh fruits were hard to come by. Non-Filipino meals were so bad too. The pizza was laughable, the crepes like wet sponges, the spaghetti deplorable. We had no idea how the other guests were ordering that stuff. For the money that their guests pay, I think management can afford to plan kitchen provisions ahead of time--this just goes with running a hotel and restaurant in the service industry. Management can also afford to pay their staff overtime fees so that they have a stake in serving the guests well. Perhaps they can hire a better cook as well if they pay and treated them fairly.

excellent eco friendly diving resort”
It's a lovely eco friendly destination which gives a opportunity to be PADI certified diver. The instructor, Filipe, is a really kind person, who will help you with your first steps in this new ''sport''. The resort in general is located in a very quiet island which is surrounding with many activities such as trekking, snorkelling, kayaking, etc. These options can keep you occupied during the day as the power is ON during the evening 6pm-6am. Though, there is not a stable internet connection. My personal experience was really good as i got my PADI and experienced all the activities. So, definitely i recommend the place. It's an absolute paradise.

Best place to relax away from home.”
Location, size of the room, very quiet & relaxing
We're the only Filipino group during our stay & we had a really good time. From sunrise to sunset, we enjoyed every bit of our stay. + flexibility of mgt & staff. Very friendly & warm reception + boat ride going to & from the resort + island hopping with Kuya Bong + pancit bihon & spicy squid (we ordered more than 2x) + free breakfast & free coffee, tea + no electricity from 6am to 6pm (I give this a "plus" since we barely experience this nowadays. We are forced to go out of our room to breathe fresh air & appreciate the beauty of mother nature). - limited food from the menu (suggest to add grilled food) - no cold drinking water even during night time Can't think of any negative thing to say, cz we really enjoyed our stay here & we are already planning our next visit. Cheers!

Peaceful, Eco friendly, best service
We went there as a group, from the moment we arrived until the day we left, we were very taken care off. The manager was very attentive to our needs and very helpful. Everyone in the resort was hospitable and very nice. If you want peace and quiet and one with nature, disconnect from the modern world and its fast pace, then this is the place you need to be. You will be rocked to sleep by the soft sounds of nature. You will eat fresh catch of the day from the sea. Be greeted every morning by the beautiful sunrise. Visit nearby islands, be amazed by the beauty underwater. It's so sad that we had to leave. Thank you so much to all the staff and the manager for taking care of us and for making our stay as wonderful as it can be. Will sure be back!

Quiet Paradise!”
Location is amazing, with it's own house coral reef. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Peaceful in the middle of nature.
We had an amazing time at Coral Bay Beach and Dive Resort. The communication with the resort even months before our arrival was prompt and professional. Pick up from the airport is a good option as they will take you directly to the resort (50 min by van, then another hour by boat). We were welcomed by the manager with drinks and showed to our bungalows. The bungalows are simple, yet with good taste, comfortable beds, mosquito nets, and a decent bathroom. There is not electricity during the day, which was fine with us as we did want a relaxing holiday. The resort's staff were super friendly, accommodating to our requests and made all the arrangements for our island hopping tour plus a kayak day. My husband did diving through the Dive center and was really pleased with the instructor's professionalism, good quality equipment and just the beautiful spot to dive. We were with a group of two other families with young kids and they had an amazing time. The kids can play by the beach, swim in the shallow pool-like waters by the resort and still enjoy some snorkeling by the corals. We stayed 6 nights and had a wonderful time. If you want a relaxing place, beautiful exuberant nature and sea life, this is a great place to go. Food wise, you are a bit limited in the choices since you depend on the only restaurant in the resort and it can take some time for the food to come. However, the staff was really friendly and tried their best to accommodate us. Highly recommend Coral Bay Beach and Dive Resort.

This is a genuine coral island experience. If you are after a natural isolated diving resort with great training, and access to the best wreck diving in the Philippines, then this is it! If you prefer club med, then please read the resort conditions carefully to avoid disappointment! This is a remote site, with only water access, one of its attractions! We loved it and will certainly be going back soon.

One of the most untouched spots of coron area”
Underwater life, quietness, food
It's a very quiet island resort with rich offerings. Rooms were really nice. Staff was friendly. Due to time limitation we were only able to make discovery diving around resort area. Was more than enough, saw couple of lion fish, baby sharks etc. Open buffet breakfast, lunch snd dinner is maybe the most tasty amd fresh food you can find in Coron area. It's impossible to be bored on the island, resort offers FOC kayaks, pool, chess, dart activities. The only cons is the long transportation time to the island. Shortest transportation from corom town or air port to the resort takes around one and a half hour(45 minutes shuttle bus and 45 mintes boat ride) Due to transportation limitations it took 3 hours for us to arrive the island ( we were obliged to go to the airport first to pick up another guest and boat delayed around 20 minutes). But for our return the owners were helpful enough to arrange transportation to Coron town only for me and my wife. Make sure that you stay iat least 3 days so you can enjoy it fully.

Stunning resort, amazing location”
The food was amazing! And the remote location is unbeatable
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Coral Bay. We stayed four nights and wished we were staying longer. The couple who own the place are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated, mosquito nets provided (although we barely needed them) and you get your own balcony and hammock. Being located on an island on the beach there is amazing snorkelling, diving and other activities you can do. The bar was a bit pricy - but then again they would have to get everything delivered from the main island so it is not unreasonable. The power is only on 6pm-6am but this is not a problem because during the day you are out and about and the sea breeze is cooling :) Wi-fi is fast and always available. We had the best time and would love to return.

this was probably the best resort we have stay at. from the moment you made the booking to the moment the boat took you back to coron, you were well looked after. the danish owners were very welcoming and helped in every way they could. the food provided was of an excellent standard. the diving services available were of a high standard and the instructors were very accomodating. less that 50m from the resort there is a wonderful reef which is superb for both diving and snorkling. in fact this reef was in the best condition of any we saw in the philipines. the resort is very eco-friendly with generator power running from 6pm-6am. there is very little else on the island except for a small village about 1km away around the cove.
