World-class standards in a rural setting”
My husband is a former diplomat, and we have traveled all over Asia and Africa. Our guests were a retired Japanese businessman and his wife who had traveled to Europe and Americas. They wanted to see the best of the Philippines, so we decided to bring them to Coron. I knew that Coron suffered from frequent brownouts, and its hotels had primitive facilities. We were surprised that the Gateway had rooms that had world class standards, and no brownouts. Best of all the Gateway was next to the market, and we could buy crabs, lobsters, prawns, fresh fish, crayfish, which our boatman cooked for our lunch as we toured the islands. We tried the other restaurants, but the Kayangan Restaurant of the Gateway Hotel had a stable menu and reasonable prices. They had hired a new Restaurant Manager who made sure the food was interesting. They offered "promos" that broke the monotony of the regular menu. Of course, they also had crayfish, crabs, lobsters, fish, that they would cook any way you wanted. The only thing I was really unhappy about was that the Agoda had charged us almost 60% more than the rates that was being charged by the Gateway. Our bill for the hotel was P for six rooms or P per day. Had I just booked straight to the hotel, we would have paid only P3,600. That was P12,538 more or 58% more, a really sizeable difference. I am a hotel owner myself, and I was going to enlist my hotels with Agoda. I know that the Agoda should only charge the published rates. In this case, my Hotel Guests would be very upset if they found out that what was charged to them was 60% higher than what I would have paid for, specially since I was a local Filipino, myself. The Gateway arranged for airport transfers and sightseeing tours. They gave us the prices we should pay for these tours, which enabled me to set aside the money for the entrance and boat. I was happy with the Gateway, and except for the Agoda overcharging, it would have been perfect.
I wish I could come back every year”
We stayed in Room 202 (Junior Suite Double). There were pros and cons. Ultimately, for me, the pros outweighed the cons. But I'll list them so you can weigh them for yourselves. Cons: 1. If you've been reading other reviews, you might have come across complaints about stained sheets or towels. We also encountered this. 2. Even though we followed the instructions on how to indicate we wanted new towels (leave the towels on the floor), every day we came back and had to call the front desk for towels. 3. The wi-fi connection was weak. Our return flight was rescheduled so I had to access my email to download the new e-tickets but I couldn't open my email with the hotel wi-fi. Thankfully, we found a cafe with a strong enough connection (Fika Indulgence Cafe) to get the new tickets. Pros: 1. The room looks exactly like the photos online. For the price I paid, that was an excellent deal. Instead of being just a room to sleep in, it felt like an actual part of the vacation. 2. We requested a room on the second floor (got that suggestion from the reviews) and they granted that. They even gave us a corner room so we had a great view of the seaport. 3. The hotel's near the seaport, so if you're planning on going on tours (Malcapuya Beach, Kayangan Lake, etc) then it's convenient. Most tour operators offer pick-up and drop-off. We were always dropped off first and that was convenient because we had more time after the tours to go around town (Pedro's Gelato, Island Boy Grill, Coron Souvenirs and Gift Shop). 4. Extra pillows only cost PHP50 each. This really mattered to me because I can't sleep comfortably with just one pillow. 5. So many drawers. You won't run out of places to put your things in. 6. Electrical sockets everywhere. Super convenient. We never had to worry about which devices we could charge when. 7. The hotel staff was responsive via email. It was our first time in Palawan so we appreciated that they always made themselves available for questions.
Impressive hotel with great location”
me and my partner decided to visit coron palawan to celebrate my birthday and i didn't know its the best place to propose too! the day of our arrival in coron by air phil was very good no delay, just on time. outside of the airport was the vans waiting for the hotel guest to pick us up and send to our respective hotels. i was shock and see my name on their board and they are waiting for us, we didnt expect it cause its out of our arrangement to have pick up from the airport to hotel, i must say this is one of the amazing service provided by the hotel since we are unfamiliar with the place yet. we just pay php150 each for the fare. upon arrival to our hotel the frontdesk asked for the hotel voucher and let us in to our room near by the entrance facing the mountain and ocean side. were so impressed when we see the room with very spacious, clean, and very luxurious amenities. with two wide queen size bed and having very big bathroom was i love the most with this hotel room. its been one of the best trip with my partner happened to us by providing us this kind of accomodation and service. if were going to visit coron again,for sure will stay here and absolutely best for recommendation! thank you guys! more power and god speed!
We got large rooms that are of best value! We got to compare it with different other rooms of the same price range, the Gateway Hotel will give you more than enough space for your family at a reasonable price. The staff is great and provides us with what we need all the time (extra beds for massage, extra water, plastic bags, transfers and other things.) Location is also great since it is located at the center of the municipality of Coron
Convenient spot ”
What I enjoyed most about Coron Gateway Hotel is its convenient location, as it's at the heart of Coron town. The rooms are clean, its staff are friendly, and a breath-taking view is available by your window. Electricity fluctuates every now and then, but I guess that's Coron's issue in general.
probably the best choice of Coron Town”
before i decided to choose this hotel, i did check all the bad review for this hotel. it's noisy, and the water in bathroom may be small. however, i think it is absolutely right that i choose this hotel. the hardware is really good for this hotel, 4-star level and brand new. the air conditioner is cool. good room brought u good feeling. and it's location is so good, so you can just walk to seadive/bistro for eating. just bring ur laptop or iphone, so no internet in this hotel is something you can get compensation. our room number is 307, except for the voice of generator the local ktv sound could not be heard. actually i think for the noise, each people had their own tolerance. fortunately both my girl friend and me could take sound sleep. for the small water, we suggest u take ur shower earlier. the water for shower is pretty ok before 8pm, after 10pm, it is really small. the staff we met are nice. they are helpful. we didn't eat in gateway, but when i ask for hot water from the staff, they give me for free and with smile. just remember it's weakness and be prepared of it, you will really enjoy ur stay in this hotel.
Great Location and Good Service”
we stayed at the presidential suite. the hotel location is right there beside the wharf/pier where motorized bancas are anchored so we can deal easily with banca operators regarding island hopping and exploration tours. coron has so many things to offer and after the day's exploration we need to rest in comfort in order to get ready for next day's adventure and this is where coron gateway hotel provides comfort for people who want sea adventures like us. the presidential suite is big enough to accomodate and provide comfort for us.
Room Type: Junior Suite Pros: 1. Good location - port is just across the hotel, few minutes away from Coron Town Proper & Mt. Tapyas 2. BIG ROOMS!! as in literally big - you can actually run around the room. 3. with bath tub, shower, cabinets, with dining table & sofa 4. Accommodating staff - (10/10) 5. with cable Cons: 1. No foam bath for the bathtub 2. No heater 3. No outside call for the phone Nevertheless, I would still rate this hotel 10/10 since the pros are more than enough - definitely worth the price!
Nice hotel, great location but noisy environment”
This hotel is the only establishment in Coron town which actually deserves the name hotel. The location of the hotel is very convenient being in the middle of the market and next the quay where many boat are leaving from. However this of course results in a rather noisy environment. The 2 stroke engines of tricycles are just the start. Right opposite to our room was a little dive shop which used compressors to refill air tanks all night. But worst of all when the daily brownout came and the hotel switched on the generator the noise level became unbearable. This was made worse by the specific room which was directly above the generator. On the other side the rooms were nice, the staff waas friendly and helpful and all services still worked during brown-outs (hot water, aircon, internet) which is unsual for hotels in Coron. If I stayed in Coron again I would probably select this hotel again but try to get a room as far as possilbe from the generator. The hotel restaurant is good and reasonably priced in relation to other restaurants in town.
Very new and modern spacious room”
It was a pleasant stay at coron gateway. The room and bathroom were really spacious and clean. There is a huge tub in the bathroom. However, our room was facing the wet market. It can get abit noisy sometimes but it died down before our bedtime so it was fine. Thankfully there wasn't any awful smell from the market. We travel around without the 'taxi' most of the time as it is very well located. Walkable distance to mount tapyas and jetty. Staff were generally friendly and helpful except for one lady who didn't smile throughout.
good location, clean place”
I think it is the clean and modern place to stay in coron town. located right in front of the sea, next to the public market where you can see the coron's civil life.(Attention. there is no beach in this town. It is like a small harbour.) The hotel upgraded my room to presidential suite, which was really large & clean. There was kitchen in my room, but no cooking utensil.(anyways, you wouldn't want to make your own food.) They arranged island hopping tour for only me & my friend.(you can ask to front desk, no need to book in advance.)The cost was about the same as other agencies charge you, and you can have your own boat! However, I was annoyed by the noise coming from public market. They turned on the loud music on every morning from 6 a.m!!! The hotel restaurant was just ok. not really recommended. And there are good other restaurants in town, which you would like to try.
Great location, helpful staff”
Enjoyed our stay at Coron Gateway. The staff was very helpful and friendly. They helped us book a day-of island hopping tour 40 minutes before we had to leave and they were thoughtful enough to ask us if we required airport transfer the day before we were to check out. The room is enormous though outdated and the bed is very hard. Excellent location right in town and near to the water/boat launch. Would recommend!
Love this hotel! We got to check in at 9AM. Booked thru Agoda with a very big discount. Booked a junior suite. Room was big and clean. Hotel was near the pier and town; both walking distance. Would definetely book here again if I go back to Coron.
Very spacious and comfy!”
We booked the junior suite via agoda. When we first entered the room, we noticed how spacious the room is. The bed has an elevated flaform, there is a big sofa and table beside the bed, the bathroom is spacious as well, it has a bath tub but there is no drain cover so you can't actually use it. It is located near the port where you ride for island hopping tours, it is also near the public market, travel agencies, restaurants. The cons is that you have nothing to do after the tours as there is no pool and hotel restaurant, but for an affordable price, we did not expected a pool, you still actually get more than what you paid for.
The hotel's location was perfect for island hopping. It was right beside the port. The rooms were very nice and the food was good (although it did take awhile for the food to be served). Staff was very accommodating. We made new friends in the hotel. Manager, OIC, servers and even the owner. I will definitely stay here again when I go back to Coron.
V nice place right next to the city's marketplace.”
The best place we stayed at in the Phillippines - the rooms are spacious and clean. The price is fair, though not cheap. Good air conditioning, very nice staff. Very conveniently located in the city of Coron. The only minus is that due to the fish market right next door, sometimes it reeks of fish outside of the room.
Lovely place and lovely people”
during our first day in the hotel, they gave us the nicest room big room, big bathroom,the only thing is missing is the telephone because everytime we have a question i need to go to the reception area which is the same level, so we did asked to change our, but the room that they gave to us is smaller,noisier and the bath tub has some hole and damaged.staff service was good. we enjoyed our stay in coron gate way hotel.
Excellent location, friendly staff & room upgrade!”
our airplane ride to busuanga coron was cancelled, so we lost our 1st day paid hotel room! the hotel staff was kind enough to give us a larger room for our one day stay in busuanga! the room was huge, even had a kitchen, large bathroom & the bed was so comfortable! you can request for an in room massage service & that was just wonderful!
Excellent hotel in Coron. The room was very big exactly the same in the picture, excellent staff and there is a very good restaurant in the hotel with good price. I recommend this hotel!!
Go-to Hotel when in Coron”
Best location right by the pier (walking distance to boat tours) while in Coron. We have stayed in this hotel every time we visit Coron (6+ times and counting). Rooms are clean and big, and staff are very kind.
