              Pure relaxation”

              Absolute seclusion with everything you need at your fingertips
              nothing

              To start off I had a terrible couple of days due to flight cancellations by Cebu Pacific airlines caused me to miss 2 days of this wonderful resort. Finally when I arrived to El Rio I had forgotten all about my missed flights and was ready to just relax. As soon as we arrived by boat the staff was waiting for us on the dock to sing us a welcome song which was a nice touch to a warm welcome. Then the manager Alex, who was fantastic, gave us a quick description of the facilities and activities available. That is when the relaxation began. I can't even begin to describe how wonderful everything was from the room to the service. I give El Rio a 9 out of 10 and I am pretty picky as I have stayed in some nice places around the world. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone who is looking to get away with a loved one or someone just wanting to relax. They have a lot of activities you can do from diving to island hopping and I highly recommend the Coron Island tour. One word to desctribe this place......beautiful!!! While you are there get to know Mackoi the bartender. He mixes up some wonderful drinks and he has a great attitude on life. Then again how can you not when you work in paradise. If you are thinking about going to Busuanga I would suggest you seriously consider El Rio Y Mar as your home for your duration while there you won't be disappointed!!

              Best Holiday Ever!”

              Peaceful, Bar, Cottages

              We have just come back from a truly amazing honeymoon. We stayed at El Rio y Mar for 5 nights, in a Cedar Cabana cottage, which is spacious, clean and have an amazing view both during sunrise and sunset. Air-con in the room is great, hot water shower works well. This resort is very well organised, from airport transfer to islands excursions to spa treatments, very friendly staff and professional. They understand how to make their guest feel relaxed during their stay at the resort and on excursions. We opted for the full board option, meals are good, especially the seafood and their angus steak. When we first arrived, the resort was almost at its max capacity, the resort had put on shows during evening meals. Bar tender Emil's fire dance was the most impressive of all. He was friendly and he also remembered my favourite drink - Mango milkshake whenever I visited the Port Caltom's Reef Bar! Darren who was our guide for the Coron Island tour as well as our day trip to the sister resort Club Paradise, he is very tentative and friendly... he led us to find the Sea Turtles and the giant clam at Club Paradise. We have also went for a hike up to the submit of the hill, it has a great view of the resort and you are able to see Club Paradise from there. All in all, it was one of the best holiday we've had ever!

              Amazing stay in paradise”

              We have recently returned from an amazing trip to Coron where we stayed at El Rio Y Mar. From the very first moment we arrived on the island we were greeted with a warm welcome from the staff and we knew that we had arrived in paradise! The staff were extremely friendly and couldn't do enough for us during our stay. We had booked one of the cottages along the seafront, the room was very clean and had a lovely rustic feeling to it. The food at the hotel was lovely and a great selection on the menu – with an even better selection of cakes and desserts! The staff could not do enough for us and the evening of my birthday they gave me a birthday cake and sang happy birthday around our dinner table which was lovely. I felt so relaxed during my whole time at El Rio Y Mar, they had a great selection of cocktails and each evening we sat in the bar on the pier to watch the sunset. I would highly recommend this hotel and would love to return one day.

              El rio Y Mar, is a one stop resort, they almost have everything you need to see outside this resort, ambiance is superb, courteous, efficient and friendly staff. The food is delicious, their buffet breakfast food are different everyday. Stand up paddle boards and kayaks are free to use, anytime you need it. They have their own diving site and instructional diving facility. And the most captivating is their floating spa, you get to enjoy underwater view while having your massage. They have a snorkeling site with 100s or more different kind of fish and corals. Each cabana have different themes, we were in the Cedar Room and its fantastic, cozy and relaxing even if there are no television sets in every room, it's alright, wifi is free. I could go on and on saying good reviews, but one thing for sure, you will be relaxed and have a really good time in El Rio. Another thing, they also offer tours outside the resort if you want to explore more. You will enjoy the resort i promise you.

              Friendly staff, beautiful island, secluded & value for money

              El Rio Y Mar is a beautiful resort & we thoroughly enjoyed our time here (only wished it were longer!) Pros: the friendly and helpful staff, the quiet ambience, the hiking trail (warning: do not complete this in flip-flops like we did!!!), efficient tour bookings, a great welcoming & good facilities. We utilized the free wi-fi (which only works in a very small portion of the resort) and the games room which included traditional Filipino games like sunka. It is a little off the beaten track, a "10 minute" (by Filipino time) bus ride and then another 30 mins on a boat. Unfortunately it rained during our boat ride to El Rio, however the staff looked after us with ponchos on hand as well as snacks. We were welcomed with drinks & a song which was lovely. The native room was nice! View from the balcony: amazing. As noted before, mini bar prices were rather high & the food was not that great. I was not keen on any of the food, however my boyfriend really liked it (a matter of taste I suppose!) We did the island hopping tour. It was disappointing that we could only visit two of the islands due to choppy weather, but they were beautiful. Overall, a lovely place to stay. The staff will look after your every need. Not a lot to do, but this is definitely the place for you if you're looking for some place secluded and off the beaten track for some down time and relaxation. A gem in Palawan... definitely recommended!

              This was our final stop during our vacation in Coron. I had to cancel my booking from the other hotel because we wanted to extend our stay here. They were very welcoming. There was an orientation when we arrived. We had complimentary drinks, cookies and free bamboo straws. It’s a complete vacation stay. There is a hiking trail. They offer free use of kayak, snorkelling gear, paddle board and life vest. They have a game room, gym facility and 2 pools. There are so many features to mention in this resort whether you wanted to do water and land activity or just to relax. In summary, best place we stayed in Coron. The downside only was that our room had fly like mosquitoes, so I kinda had bite marks after our first night. Nonetheless, they are quick to response and cleaned our room. We’ll definitely return to El Rio Y Mar.

              Paradise and five-star service found in Coron! ”

              We loved absolutely EVERYTHING about El Rio y Mar. The service was five star, with the most friendly and accommodating staff we’ve experienced. The restaurant was delicious and with an incredibly diverse menu, we never ran out of new dishes to try. They offer everything from pizza to traditional Filipino cuisine at very reasonable prices. We stayed in a cedar cabana that was both spacious and clean. The best part was the easy beach access—right out the back door! We chose to snorkel, which was very good (lots of parrot fish, angel fish and others right off the pier!), and enjoy the beautiful pools on-site but the resort offers a variety of excursions and activities as well. We will definitely be back! Salamat, El Rio y Mar, for a fantastic vacation!

              Paradise!”

              Relaxing atmosphere, personal service. Cottages are right on the beach and you can hear the sea waves while falling asleep... A sense of privacy and intimacy. Great, welcoming and helpful staff. Great bar and bar services. A Doctor is on-board!
              Beach stripe is pretty small, although we did not find that a disturbance. Occasional Jellyfish in the water...

              El Rio y Mar is a magical place. Extremely relaxing and calm - the cottages are pretty close to one another, yet we had the sense of privacy the whole time. The staff performed amazingly - starting with a welcome song when we just arrived, through excellent, attentive service throughout our whole stay, and a goodbye song as we left. Room was spacious and clean, and we loved the native straw and wood design, as we did the proximity to the sea (~2m from our balcony to the water line!). The reef bar is amazing to sit at, and the bartenders are top-notch, and very entertaining. The resort has a very nice reef to snorkel at, but watch out for the jellyfish! We did not use the dive shop services, as we did our dives at the neighboring Club Paradise, but the dive master was very friendly and professional in answering all of our questions and advising us as to the dives available. The on-board doctor proved to be very helpful as we both got a very bad cold upon arriving to the Philippines, and provided us with medicine and advice; helping us to be able to dive during our stay. We received great, personal service from the resort manager throughout our stay, and became close friends with many of the staff, which for us made the stay even more enjoyable. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this resort to people who look for a quiet peaceful holiday destination.

              Despite the misfortune we've experienced due to typhoon Urduja and not able to explore the beauty of Coron's nature, El Rio Y Mar was able to lift our spirit up and still made this trip memorable for us by letting us experience how beautiful the people of Coron, specifically people of El Rio Y Mar, both inside and out. The cleanliness of the room, the quality of food served, and the smile and greeting from the staff are evident manifestation of how you value your guests. We are also very impressed of how understanding the management in regards to our request to move our booking a day later.

              Amazing place! :)”

              Fantastic place! We usually stay in real paradise place 2hrs drive from Manila (look up ourplacepicodeloro for example), but El Rio Y Mar is just perfect if you are in Coron area :) Fantastic scenery, beach, food, staff (guest service officer is not nice however)! Stay in Coron and do the tours there, then come to El Rio y Mar and relax! Take native cabana, it is just perfect and with direct access to your own beach :) Don't miss Dugong tour! :) Enjoy! The place is amazing :)

              Excellent Experience ”

              The resort is very isolated and relaxing. It’s not very big so it never felt crowded. Beautiful resort. The staff was excellent and always made us feel so great. Staff was a lot of fun too. The excursion to Coron island was amazing and our guide was great. Daily costs were reasonable. Food was fairly priced, around $20 or less for 2 people for lunch and around the same for dinner. Drinks were fairly priced too. Definitely highly recommend El Rio y Mar.

              best vacation”

              I can only say praises to this resort. The service and the location were impeccable. Of all the hotels I've visited this one's my favorite. El Rio Y Mar made my Papa's 66th bday a memorable one. Special shoutout to Chenee and Janine from their Manila office who was able to hand me the polo shirt I left in our hotel room. Service is top notch. It's just so heartwarming to see everyone greet you with genuine smiles. Please try to snorkel in the resort at around 8a. The variety of fish is just.. WOW! I loved it! Free snorkeling, kayak, snorkeling masks, fins, volleyball, hiking etc. What more can you ask for? Can't wait to get back!! PS My dad and I were the only ones who travelled. I chose solo traveller because I felt that it was the closest option.

              A Perfect Vacation even in Rainy Season”

              We stayed at the hotel for 3 days and two nights, how we wished we spent all our days in El Rio. After we stayed for a day in at Vienna Hotel, in which our first day was wasted due to cancelled flight, the services & experience we got from El Rio Y Mar is no equal to what we have experienced from of all of our trips here and abroad. It started with on-time pickup at our hotel, which we expected we will be riding a van together with other guest but to our delight, Van is a private for us, then a Private Big Boat and both Van & Boat drivers well mannered drivers, then a warm welcome by the staff at the reception area accompanied with a welcome song and drinks. That the Cedar Room is breathtaking with an outright access to the sea. Free use of kayak, padel board, Game Room, Gym, Videoke room which so clean and updated ang songs, aircon room too and free meds in the clinic. Only downside is limited food selection for Lunch and Dinner. Bar is great too. Definitely will get back

              Paradise at the El Rio y Mar”

              small and intimate, friendly staff, activities
              jellyfish on beach

              this resort really lives up to its sister's name, club paradise. what makes it paradise is that it is smaller, less kids, and a cheaper. you get great personalized attention from the staff, a rocking bar out on a dock in the middle of the river, plenty of water activities, and a dive master right on site! buffets were ok, but the snack menu is enough to satisfy if you don't go for the all-you-can buffet package (we didn't). if you need to connect, you can access the free wifi near reception and there are dvd players in some of the rooms. you really are in the wild here, we saw all kinds of lizards, jellyfish, and even a monkey! the only benefit of staying at the other resort is the lovely beach and snorkeling area, but i wouldn't give up what we had for that, since there are several boat rides over to club paradise where you can enjoy the beach for a day, and come home to the quieter el rio y mar.

              Amazing Haven”

              For the price we paid, the resort is an underrated heaven. The place was simple, serene and lovely. There was no sight of the hotel manager and we only see young staff and they were all so lovely and provided excellent service with a heart. The hotel team has nothing but geniune smile and gentle demeanour. Two names which stood out to us were Erika and Mark. Such a sweet service we had. It was simple and geniune. The resort was a home, mainly for its people - they are the true treasure. We will definitely recommend El Rio Y Mar to our friends and family.

              Nothing short of AMAZING”

              This is the second time i've stayed at El Rio Y Mar and cannot wait to go back again. Absolutely everything about this resort is perfect but the staff are the best I've ever come encountered. They are kind, thoughtful, fun, attentive and genuinely always happy to see you and ask you all about your day. They had beach volleyball every afternoon when we were there. Staff and guests were able to play which was a great bonding experience. The resort makes you feel super special and welcomed from the sweets in the room every afternoon to the string band that plays for you every dinner time. This resort has a strong homely feel and it's so hard to say goodbye!

              Look no further! The perfect relaxing getaway for families”

              We went to El Rio with our 2yo and 10mo kids. An all-in-one beachfront resort like this is a real find, as all the boat trips required to see the sights of Palawan are frankly too challenging with babies and toddlers. We spent 6 days at the resort and never felt the need to go anywhere. The diving and scuba are super right on the house reef, the spa has lots of services and trained professionals, and there are activities organized for kids and adults each day such as kayaking in the mangroves and jewelry making for kids. There is a kids pool and nice sloped shallow area off the main pool that are ideal for young kids, and they have pool toys on hand. Staff are warm and friendly and really try to accommodate all requests. We spent a rainy afternoon in the videoke room, but the library was out of service during our stay. Best of all is the food. We live in Manila and have found that F&B is consistently lacking at even 5-star resorts in the Philippines. At El Rio, we ate something different every day and were very happy with the Western cooking, even if some dishes were a bit too oily and there are quite a few fried items. Our cedar cabana was spacious enough for the baby to toddle around and we adored having the hammock and loungers on the patio and outside to sit and enjoy the start and night sky. It's also great that the only noises are those of nature and the live band. We saw monitor lizards, hundreds of fish, mudskippers, birds, butterflies...endless fauna to admire for the kids! The resort is amazingly stroller friendly, too. We will definitely be back with friends and family.

              Oasis in Coron”

              I have to admit, I didn't know what I signed up for when I booked a stay at El Rio Y Mar. One in preparation to come here must know it is VERY secluded and you should book their shuttle for when you arrive in Coron. When we finally arrived, we finally got to relax and really take in the experience they offer. It's absolutely amazing and great for couples or families who are looking for a more private experience. The food is great, and the staff is absolutely amazing. I wasn't feeling very well and the nurse was so sweet and attentive to me! We got to paddleboard, snorkel, feed fish, and so much more.

              El Rio Y Mar is a lovely resort and is more than what you could ask for. They made us feel welcome and taken cared of from the time we arrived up to when we left the resort. Staff are really helpful and courteous. I love the fact that they give out bamboo straw to guests, they think of nature- simple act that but with great impact. Free kayak use, videoke room. The infinity pool is gorgeous as well as the bar. There is a hiking trail with pretty views for sunrise/sunset. Had massage in the middle of the sea - which is a perfect way to relax! I suggest you put in spa music. Overall satisfied. Will stay here again!

              awesome service
              the mangroves in the resort can be creepy esp. at night

              El Rio y Mar exceeded my expectations from the moment they picked us at the airport to the time me checked-in for our flight back to Manila. Me and my girlfriend went there not expecting much about the beachfront. But it was actually okay. The reef bar w/ its resident fishes make snorkeling & even diving very enjoyable. The bay esp near the right end of the resort is gently sloping with fine sand. We loved the buffet dinner by the beach plus the performances. We stayed in a native cabana which we have no complain about. I still have much to say but it a nutshell, their service is excellent.
