Amazing ”
La Estancia was a great escape from hustle and bustle of city life. The property was very well kept and the location was amazing to be right on the water. The staff were super friendly and went over and above to ensure our stay was most enjoyable.

Disappointing location”
If you are looking for calm and to be completely secluded from the rest of the world, then this is a good location (no internet, no phone signal, no transportation). It cost us 3,000 pesos to each way (6,000 pesos for 3 people just to get there). You cannot swim (jelly fish all over the place) and nothing to do except rent a canoe and go around. In brief, super boring. I stayed there for an hour and went to look for another hotel in Coron where all the action and nice beaches are

over all good”
Almost perfect if this resort beautiful views paradise... but NO tv in all rooms, NO refrigerator, NO Wifi ttoo and no hot water for shower, so you feel bord during the night only. If u looking for menu for food NO available Menu. you need to request to resort before your booking date., specially if you dont eat seafoods or if you have allergy for seafoods. but they serve any food but u need to request early beacause they go to market late. the food is fix price for 3 Meal aday for the price of 1,500php each person. so you need to request your food that you love to eat every meal... all staff if friendly and approachable. they offer Island hopping its perfect if you love adventures for you family. over all Good

Great place, almost perfect”
We enjoyed very much our stay in La Estancia. This is a very classy and simple design resort for few families/people, which turns the place very exclusive and makes you feel like living in a private island with superb service. The staff is great, with best level of personalized service and hospitality. About room facilities, I partialy agree with comments of Luisa C. (29 Jan 2016), since we got the same room with no mirror or the plastic chairs in the balcony (there is no classy design here, haha). Superb food... so be prepared for lots and lots of eating because food is spectacular. But note that you have to pay PHP 1.500 per person per day ($32,5 USD) and there's no other option around. No WIFI and no signal in the hotel (unless you go up the hill, 5 min walking), which turned into a nice surprise since we felt really disconnected and relaxed for the 4 days we spend in La Estancia. Family and guests chat and relax (or enjoy the activities of Busuanga) instead of been chating and messaging via the internet. Superb staff, place and experience.

Still a way to go before it can be world-class”
La Estancia Busuanga is situated in a beautiful spot, with tropical flower gardens and magnificent views of small islands and quiet, sandy coves. We were the only guest during our stay, but because none of the rooms in the new building (that's the building you see in all the pictures) were ready, we were put in the old cottage which had a very large room and a terrace with a table and two plastic chairs. The room was very clean, the bedding and towels were high quality. The room did not have a fridge or a kettle, so they brought thermos with cold and hot water when you asked, which it's not the same as having an electric kettle and being able to make a cup of tea at 3 am if you want. Our room did not have a safe, although the rooms in the new building did. The bathroom was clean but dark and VERY dated (the new building has nice bathrooms but slightly smaller rooms and terraces) with cracked tiles and rusty pipes, no mirror and NO HOT WATER, and the beds were so hard that after the first night we both had a bad backache, so the staff added a foam layer over them, which helped. In retrospect we should have insisted on staying in the new building, but we did not want to make the staff prepare a room in the evening when we arrived: make sure you do, because we feel we were overcharged for the accommodation we were given. It was not made clear to us that the place did not have Internet: apparently the last typhoon has knocked the tower down and service had not been restored. If you need to be connected to the world, make sure you check: we were supposed to meet friends on the next leg of our trip but, after 4 days of not hearing from us, they gave up and went elsewhere. The TV / movie room likewise was not working and, after inquiring about it every day, we gave up. Much has been said in previous comments about the food. We felt the meals cost too much (US$31 per person per day), not because of what was offered -which was very plentiful and good- but for what we coul

Slice of Heaven BUT Verify Location & Weather”
First Rate Employees, Private Balcony with Incredible View, and Feast-like Food
PLUSES: First rate employees (Manang Auring, her Ilonggo hubby, Manong Cornelio the veteran driver, the young lady cook whose lumpiang Shanghai was the best ever, and, of course, Kuya Les) who are very kind & constantly provide exceptional service, prompt & constant communication with owner, SPECTACULAR FOOD (esp. lumpia made with tinapa/smoked fish), private balcony with million dollar view, exclusive feel like you're almost renting your own island, very classy Filipino design, Filipino-owned, motorcycle ride of my life in muddy dirt paths during rains MINUSES: I wish I knew that the owner wasn't going to be there (despite many emails between us), location is both good (private island feel) & bad (too remote, a boat ride was necessary as of early July, 2015--with rare exception, see below) IN SUMMARY, the resort is very nice, classy but simple, but be picky weather-wise as we got stuck there for 2 days in non-stop rain during typhoon season (it only stopped raining for about half an hour or less--seriously). We quickly visited a nearby beach via a 10 min. banca/boat ride (Lolo's/Grandpa's Beach?) during a quick break from the heavy rains but, of course, we got caught in the middle of a strong downpour later on--mostly exciting but frankly scary in some parts. We were the only guests there so the employees' personal touch and THE FOOD made all the difference. NOTE THAT THE RESORT'S MAIN ROUTE REQUIRES A BOAT RIDE OF ABOUT 40 MIN. THEN LAND TRAVEL OF ABOUT 1.5 HRS. TO BUSUANGA AIRPORT. If the waters are too choppy or the weather isn't nice (my understanding is morning travel is much better so arrive early). FOR THIS REASON, TAKE THE EARLIEST FLIGHT IF YOU HAVE A CHOICE SO YOU CAN TAKE THE BOAT RIDE IN THE A.M. No developed roads near the resort as of early July, 2015, just dirt paths so if you're game clutching behind an expert motorcycle rider it could be very fun but slightly dangerous. I WOULD GO BACK BUT ONLY DURING GREAT WEATHER SEASON!
