Nice staff. Could use a couple improvements”
Place was clean, staff was interested in be helpful, and ac and hot water worked well. But there wasn’t any towel racks or anywhere to hang anything in the bathroom. Also, no toilet paper holder. Bathrooms are small and shower isn’t separated, so water goes all over. Oh and included breakfasts were good.
Place is clean. Location is great as it is close to the docking station and close to the "bayan." We had some hiccups in the room(water heater broken and no water coming out) but the owner and staff were very quick to respond. Sanho is highly recommended.
Value for money and near boat tour terminal”
Owner and staff are very helpful and accommodating. Near groceries 2 mins away. Near souvenir shops & Water refilling station, and restaurant. 4 mins away from Boat tour terminals. You must visit SANTINO'S GRILL. its a must.
Nice clean room”
A nice hotel near the port where you have the tour in the morning. Pros: big and clean room , nice breakfast on the third floor with view, good value for money, free and fast Wi-Fi Cons: I just didn’t like the bathroom. It didn’t have a window, it was small and there was no shower box so when you take a shower it gets messy as water goes everywhere. All in all it was a nice hotel for a short stay in Coron so I definitely recommend it.
Overall Avoid! ”
Positive - the market is 100m away.Expect to pay Western prices. 400m from the main shops. Wifi is slow as is common on any island but available in the bedroom. Negative - Karaoke bar across the road. It is very loud and they sing past 1am every night. There are dirt stains on the roof and smudges on the bed bases. The bathroom is small and awkward so the water from the hose of the shower will wet the whole bathroom. Breakfast is basic with one plate ordered the night prior but it’s nice enough. We arranged a transfer to the airport from the front desk for 5am. It arrived at 5:30am which was very stressful given our flight was at 7am. No apology or interest in our stress was given. We hadn’t slept because of the karaoke noise and early departure so at check out we forgot to ask for our room bond deposit back. The receptionist didn’t return it. I emailed them when I got to the airport and they apologised and said they’d go to the bank to deposit it. Never happened.
Hello Dear Thank you for spending time to write down reviews. I am supervisor here, First of all, We will apologize to you what you felt. We will try to find the improvement point. but We wanna explain 2 things. 1. about the van, We brief you pick up time is 5 to 5:30am. The van is franchise one not ours. so we can only book the service and the van is going to airport on time. If there is no proper explanation from our front desk, We feel really sorry. 2. about the deposit, We brief first time when you check in that you need to ask us to get deposit back when you check out. but when you asked us to get it back later in the airport, we would try to send it back. We kept talking that we have only 2 local bank and you insist on you having 1 bank only in your contry. So we will find the other ways then the front desk girl suddenly stop working. that's why we were late to talk. We will talk through mail again aobut this, we will send the email first. Regards
Simple but good accommodation near the boat trips and centre ”
Sea view from toilet window! Good service, free breakfast, clean room.
Good clean room”
Pros.. The room we had was nice and clean. Wifi worked well. Small fridge a plus. Quiet during the day and night. Walking distance to everything. Breakfast choices are great Cons..the front desk staff can surely try to make you feel welcome when you arrive. They can really make an effort to assist their clients when approached with requests. Example.. I ask them to book a van to the airport and their short reply was that the vans they use are full. I asked if the can get other vans and the answer was no, find your own van.. Which i did by walking outside and ask
Hello Dear Paul Thank you for spending time to write down good reviews. I am Tabby one of supervisor here, then about van, I think there has miscommunication. In These days, There had some problem in running van btw van agency and local municipal. I don't know exactly about this, they've discussed about franchise(?). anyway our pension has no own van, so used the van agency. so when they had problem, we also can't offer van. so these days, some guests used tricycle. but right now, it is solved, It is processing right now. Anyway sorry for this. wish we offer better service if we host you again. ^^ Regards
Coron itself is a rustic, authentic town and (while I can't speak of other accommodation) it seems as though you'd be pushed to find somewhere of a much higher standard in the location, the hotel exceeded my expectations and we had a great time in Coron. Reading some recent reviews before staying here I was apprehensive but it seems as though the owners have also read them because I'm pleased to say we were given a receipt with our deposit and refunded with no issues; the staff were friendly and spoke English at least on some level; our room was clean, spacious, comfortable and made up every day and our door was never left unlocked. It is also a central location so we could walk everywhere which was a big plus. However there was a large group of Korean tourists staying when we were there, I think taking up most of the rooms, which made for a busy and noisy breakfast. Breakfast itself wasn't great, wifi was weak and we kept having to ask for more toilet paper. The hotel is in a lively area so expect some noise, I had asked for a quiet room in advance but had no response to my messages. Overall a good stay but could still do with some improvements.
The place is located near the port where the island tours start (which is the reason why you will travel to Coron). The surrounding is like a local community but their room is very clean, well ventilated and spacious. Breakfast was served every morning and you get to choose from the menu which is another plus point for the hotel. You no longer need to worry where and what to eat in the morning before the tour starts because they will serve you enough food that you need before you go on your island adventure. Hotel staffs were very kind, polite, helpful and hospitable! Ask them anything and they'll do it, they'll help you in any way that they can. For dinner or snack time, tricycle was very accessible for you to go to the town center and find a restaurant to eat. We ended up walking to and from the hotel whenever we go outside to look for food. It's not that far, about a 5-in walk.
Everything was good. This hotel is run by Koreans, we were happy with our stay. The only thing is that they dont understand english that well, so if you have problem with something it will be hard to explain something. Overall good hotel and great place, central location but not to loud at night time.
Pleasant stay with an exception”
the room was clean. the staffs are very attentive and will help you at the best they can. very near some stores, market and main road. it is run by koreans but staffs are locals. yes, i'd recommend the place but if you dont want to be spanked by a drunk korean at night, go somewhere else. i was downstairs by the door trying to get a better data signal and talking to a fellow guest when this drunk korean guy, which happened to be related to the owner and a dive master, joined us. he was definitely drunk and when we are about to go up to our rooms he called me and spanked me from behind. i just let it pass since i knew he was drunk. quite oppressing. i'd stay somewhere else next time.
Good wifi sometimes”
This is a Korean owned Hotel. The breakfasts are okay but if you order Korean food at night for dinner the food is excellent probably one of the best places to eat in coron. The rooms are large with good air conditioning and hot water there's not much Western TV channel. The beds are a bit hard but I slept okay. Of 6 outlets in the room only three work. There's something wrong and very difficult to plug in to some of them. Do not trust their airport transfer we had a 10:30 pickup scheduled. By 10:45 we have them call the driver a couple times. He said he would be 5 minutes and made up some excuse about traffic and checkpoints he ended up being 25 minutes late the trip to the airport only takes 30 minutes. After he picked us up he had to pick up more people to fill the van so we did not even leave Coron until after 1100. the time that we were supposed to be at the airport. then when we got to the airport and the driver asked for money even though we had paid the hotel the night before. He did not want us to go into the airport until he could call the hotel and confirm ....at this point we were done with him. Beware and plan accordingly
Great 2 star dive house”
this was my second time at this place. breakfast was 6-7/10 clean, at the heart of Coron. good place to stay
Comfortable stay at reasonable rates”
Recommended for budgetarian travellers who wants to have a comfortable and quite place to stay.
Reasonable place to stay”
Place is clean and comfortable. You'll not be disappointed with what you pay. They also have drinks to sell, however the counter will always say they don't have change for your bills. Lol
Reasonable place to stay within the Coron Town”
We had a comfortable stay at Coron Sanho. Accessible to shops and island hopping.
Very helpful staff, Clean room, Nice Bahtroom”
The room is clean, Small room but full of necessary things to stay-Airs, fan, TV, Fridge, Safe, many hangers, Bathroom is nice. Bed looks small but fit for 2 people.
Was supposedly a solo traveler however my friends was unable to get a ride and my room had 2 beds thus i offered them to crash in. The staff didn't bother to have an add on charge. The 1st room i got had a bad reception of the tv thus we were moved to a different room. The shower was working well however it seems like the door is not fully accessible since there is a washbin at the back of the door. No trashbin inside the bathroom. The food was great. Location was good since it is secured with gates on both sides and near to stores. Overall i had a good sleep.
Really great staff, decent value ”
The staff were so nice and friendly from the start. Helped us book our boat to El Nido and gave us fresh towels any time we asked. The room was ok, basic and did the job for us as we just wanted a base to explore coron. Location is good, few mins walk to all the main restaurants and tour offices and away from the noisy road so it was nice and quiet for sleep. All in all, decent value but nothing fancy. There was a weird musty smell in the room but it was always kept clean and the staff were supper. Breakfast was basic but fine.
Good place to stay in Coron for a fair price”
The building is in a good position, walking distance from the port and the town center. The room is clean and spacious. The staff is helpful and the breakfast is good, even if they aren't well organized to serve the included breakfast for guests who leave in the early morning (maybe give an alternative breakfast is a good solution!).
