              Pros- excellent snorkeling, kayaking, diving.... very romantic if you want it to be. Cons- you are committed to the resort for all your needs. We stayed only 1 night.... the plan was to stay 4-5 days but the place was booked. I’m thankful for that. Its very reclusive. The only way in is by boat. A night or 2 in this resort is plenty for me.

              This is my second time in the resort and it never fails to mesmerize me. It's not just the beautiful scenery but the impeccable customer service. The staff here are the kindest, most accommodating and friendliest people I have met. From housekeepers, frontdesk, boatmen, security, all were smiling. This is my home away from home. I will keep on coming back.

              Going to Coron with children can be challenging, so booking the right resort to stay at is important. If you're looking for place with a lot of available activities for kids and adults alike, then El Rio's the place to go. Only downside is that it's away from Coron town (on to the opposite direction of the island actually) so if you're looking to go to Coron town proper, then be prepared to book van/boat transfers. You might not really need to though, since the resort also has available tours and activities that you can book as well.

Availed of their Coron Island Tour and our guide was Andrew. He was very nice and accommodating. More power to El Rio Y Mar! And kudos to the very well trained staff! ️

              Awesome place, excellent staff, good food, commendable customer service Our only concerns were: - Our room was next to the dive shop, so we could very much hear their servicing activities including clanking of the SCUBA tanks - There was a drone hovering over the floating spa area while we were there, so that’s a bit of a security issue for the guests Overall we had a really enjoyable vacation. Thank you!

              We had a pleasant stay at this resort. Location was good on a peninsula of the main island. Snorkeling from hotel not great - some fish at Jetty so really you need to take the Island Hopping tour bour or the Coron Island tour (recommended) to see anything worthwhile. These are all extra charge on a sliding scale (3000-4000 PHP_ depending n the number of participants. There is also a transfer cost from airport to resort of 1500 PHP. Only option. Food is Ok and given that you must et at resort not too badly priced. . Ditto drinks but bring your own if this is importnat to you! Staff are very nice and helpful. Overall, a place for a laid back few days at an affordable price rather than a luxurious stay.

              This is arguably the best holiday my partner and I have ever had together. It was as if we were in an episode of Getaway or the Great Escape being on a secluded island resort sipping cocktails all day. We not only received the best 5 star service possible but we also received some lovely friends here. There was such great vibes here that we made good friends with quite a few of the staff. Being invited to shoot hoops in the afternoon and playing volleyball in the evening. We were so sad to have to leave. This place is honestly a slice of hidden paradise that cannot be found in many places in the world I’d say. Considering that this place really is a secluded island resort - the facilities are immaculate (although not modern) and there is great variety on the menu. I fully recommend this place! Also have to add that they’re very family friendly as we saw staff looking after kids while parents ate dinner and the such. So lovely. Do yourself a favour and come here!

              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!

You will never feel being rushed when eating. I love the entertainers during dinner time. We had a massage at the floating island, those ladies were wonderful. While getting a massage you have a view of fishes swimming underneath you. Overall, an excellent resort. ❤️❤️❤️

              We spent our honeymoon at this place and it was the best place for it after a stressful year of wedding preparations. Lovely and accomoating staff, stress free and eco-friendly environment, and pristine rooms. Would definitely stay in this resort everytime i visit Coron. There are loads of activities you can do too, expense free. But if you want to do island hopping and scuba diving, you need to prepare a fair amount of money. Food is great, but a bit pricey since it is far from the town proper..

              Staff are friendly and will do their best to care for you. Food selection is rather limited though and caters more to an international audience. However, you could purchase seafood from their stock and have it cooked the way you like for a cost that is actually cheaper than ordering from their menu. This is rather unknown to the guests and you will have to ask them. Facilities are great but expensive if you plan to go island hopping in the Coron area. The resort is in a secluded part of Busuanga island located in a cove on the northern part of the island. It is a destination in itself and the area caters to the higher end side of travellers, scuba divers (they have a well established diving center) or those who wish to have a quiet time with nature. As for me, I particularly enjoyed taking out their Hobie 16 sailboat and kayak. This is my home away from home.
