      Quite place to stay. Difficult to get to.”
      Discovery Island Resort is one boat ride away from the town proper. If you like to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the town, this is one of the place to be. The boat ride is about 10 to 15 minutes. If it is windy, you would have to wait for it to subside before you can get a boat ride. That's a bit of a hassle. Staff is very accommodating. Place is well kept.

      Best vacation in years!”
      Our group included our 86 year old father, 4 middle-aged adults, and 2 teenagers. We spent 10 days at this resort and wished we could stay longer. It was quiet and beautiful with endless options for adventure. A short boat trip connected us with all the activity the bustling town of Coron has to offer. The staff was friendly, helpful and often went the second mile to ensure that our needs were addressed. We divided our time between island hopping, snorkeling, and SCUBA diving. Marcel and his dive team were great and gave all of us a first-time diving experience we hope to repeat. We all want to go back!

      Very friendly staff and nice location”
      All the staffs are very approachable. They assisted us in all our concerns. The boat to go back and forth to the main island is always available early morning up to 11pm (if im not mistaken) with a waiting time that is acceptable. They also offer tours and will assist you in selecting the best option you want. We just had an issue with the boatman they assigned to us who we rented for a private tour because he was the one deciding on which place we will go and what time we will leave, which defeat the purpose of getting a private tour. But i will not take it against the hotel. Just make sure to discuss the private tour with the boat man together with the hotel staff so you will have a clear agreement since it will cost you double to have a private tour, make sure it will be worth it.

      Good to get out, but could be a lot better”
      It's awesome to be able to get out of the hustle and bustle of Coron Town to a lovely island of calm and chill and although the wait for the boat can be a bit annoying, you get used to it. What bothered me in this place was the price differential between booking online and booking on-site - which is fairly big (understandable considering the commissions to be paid) - but that's not the biggest issue here: the prices, once you are on the island are way above average for products and services that are generally a little bit below average. Especially when you often have to correct the staff, or help them count the right price to charge you.... The room was quite ok although the AC makes too much noise (incredible amounts of it) and generally speaking the place is fairly neat and relaxed... yet it seems like there is so much more potential to it and that it can be made even better. The diving from the island, proposed by the island's dive shop, which is separately owned, was great!

      Quiet peaceful place to re-charge. Wonderful natural setting, clean rooms and very accommodating and friendly staff. They hosted our family reunion of 37 people. We stayed for 4 nights and everybody had a great time. Pre-order your meals for breakfast and dinner if you’re in a big group. This is not the Ritz so please don’t stay here if you’re fussy. If you’re looking for a natural setting surrounded by lush vegetation and animals in a quiet peaceful setting, then this place is for you.

      Great location just a five minute boat ride from Coron town proper. Free boat taxi to/from resort until 11:30pm. The resort itself is a pretty good value - you get what you pay for, but the outstanding staff was a huge bonus! The dive shop was solid and the dive master RJ was exceptional!!

      The location is 15 minutes away from the home town. And the hotel provides a service boat to/from home town. The guest relations was really very nice. She is customer oriented and very helpful. You should discuss with her if you have specific concerns and not the ones in the restaurant which is not so flexible. The area is very quite still. The rooms are pretty basic. No white beach really to swim. It could be nice if they have a pool.

      Nice quiet island and resort - Coron reachable by boat in 10 Min.”
      We stayed 3 weeks at this nice place. Good to make wreck diving. Very nice staff. Riza, the philippin manager, cares very well for the guests! Only thing we missed is a housreef with snorkel oportunity. But as the island is surounded by mangroves - logically there is no reef (did not check this out well before). WiFi only available in dining/office area. When spending only a few nights both issues might not be that important.
