    Enjoy breakfast for 800 pesos per person”

    The room rate is very reasonable but we had many issues with our bathroom. We stayed in room overlooking sea. Shower (cold plus shower head broken), basin (hole in basin) and bath (only cold water) did not work. The manager was very apologetic, but they’ve known about the problem for months and haven’t fixed it. They offered to switch room on second night but it was so much hassle to move after tours etc. I know it’s not a luxury resort, but make simple things work. Any Breakfast is 800 pesos p/p. Go eat at Cashew Grove next door. Breakfast is overpriced, and there’s no menu, so you don’t know what you’re being charged before you check out. A good breakfast in coron costs 250-300 pesos. 800 pesos for 4 slices white toast, 1 coffee plus 1 canned juice just makes me feel bitter. On the plus side, the owner & manager are very nice.

    Such a trash can should never go”

    This is not the Palawan Sandcastles The Beach House. It's a Palawan Sand Animal Farm. The beach is full of dog and goat poop. There are no restaurants around. We have no choice but to eat the food sold in the beach house. But it costs 700 peso and is small and tasteless. The owners and employees are unkind, rude, and lazy. Accommodation is expensive, but bed and bathroom are dirty. You can't see the sun at sunrise. Go blind and take the money away. Such a trash can 化should never go.

    Good quiet base to do island day trips, canoeing and other adventures”

    Sandcastles is a place far of civilization, traffic, noise and air polution. Quiet and calm. Perfect to forget about your hectic daily life. It’s basic, but you‘ll have everything you need. The employees are very friendly and caring. You can get dinner, lunch and breakfast if you ask for it. The food is really good, but for lunch and dinner it’s just one daily thing and nothing else to choose from. But it’s a lot and it was always very delicious local food. The beach next to the accommodations is not that good for swimming, but you can take a boat to very beautiful lonely islands or a canoe to explore the amazing area on the water. You can do snorkeling in healthy coral riffs. We saw sharks, baracudas, clown fishes, baloon fishes and lots of other amazing paradise fishes. It’s a fantastic world to explore there under water! Like on many other accommodations on philippines, I recommend to bring your own mosquito mesh!

    Beautiful place with deficits ”

    We arrived by motorbike. The road to the place is quite tough with scooter. The place itself is beautiful - the beach houses are really, really nice with AC, but it was not really clean when we arrived. They have wi-fi which works quite okay. The guys there cooked good food, but you had to tell them early enough. Price for food was good. Another negative thing: they didn't have drinkable water there for us. We had to take it from stores or the resort 5 minutes walk down the beach. We often went to the resort closeby - which we very happy about. They provided food, water, pool. But in total we enjoyed our stay there!

    Seclusion, Staff Performance, Comfort

    My stay at Sandcastles was great! Loved everything. If you are expecting a typical resort: swimming pools, loud packed bars, gift shops, this is not it. But if you are looking to truly get away from it all, this is the place to be. Be reasonable, you are at a resort in the Philippines, you will have uninvited guests...mosquito net over the bed. Kayaking is a surprisingly offered activity.

    Nicht empfehlenwert ”

    Bei meiner Umrundung mit Motorrad habe ich eine Nacht halt im Sand kastle gemacht. Der Strand War flach und zum schwimmen nicht geeignet. Die Anlage einfach ungepflegt und dreckig. Müll bierkisten usw standen auf dem ganzen Gelände herum. Liege Möglichkeiten gab es keine. Außer ein paar Hängematten. Diese allerdings in der prallen Sonne. Das Essen war grausam. Die wollten für eine vorsuppe Hähnchen und Nachtisch 12 Euro haben. Mein Fazit. Als zwischen stop für eine Nacht ok. Aber mein Urlaub möchte ich dort nicht verbringen.

    Kleines Paradies mit kleinen Mankos”

    Das Hotel liegt abgelegen an einem kleinen Strand, genau das was wir zu dem Zeitpunkt gesucht haben. Wir haben uns einen Roller gemietet und sind eigenständig dort hingefahren, um 2 Tage einfach in der Hängematte zu liegen. Ich habe einen günstigen Deal bei Agoda gemacht, von daher war das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis für uns gut. Es gibt nur zwei Lösungen zur Verpflegung: einmal das Restaurant im Sandcastles und das Restaurant des benachbarten Resorts. Man sollte schon einplanen, dass die Verpflegung ihren Preis hat. Im Nachbarresort ist das Ambiente netter, das Essen selbst fand ich im Sandcastles besser. Wir bekamen auch eine Menge, authentisches Essen. Der Bungalow war der Hammer. Wenn man Ruhe sucht, ist das das Richtige.

    anlage war als adventurecamp geplant, so gibt es keine liegen sondern nur einige hängematten. baden nicht so berühmt, weil steine, seegras und oft niedriger wasserstand in der bucht. wunderschön gelegen. palmen und blühende bäume am strand. :-). auch einfache bambushütten ok/ luftig/ neu gemacht. gemeinschaftsbad war erträglich. nicht unsauber. man fühlt sich sicher und gut aufgehoben/ behandelt. was für mich als alleinreisende wichtig ist. wie schon andere schrieben, einiges preislich überzogen. vor allem transport 2000 (!!!) peso pro person/ aus coron. ich bin mit jeepney. angereist, 100 peso, fährt um 11 uhr in coron. teils schlechte straße/ nicht asphaltiert. 2 std. retour allerdings leider um 4am. auch ausflüge teurer als in coron. essen gut, teils exzellent, aber man gibt sich nicht immer mühe. alles in allem hatte ich schöne 3 nächte/ ein schnorchelausflug/ wenige und entspannte mit-touris. man lernt sich kennen, weil alle an einem tisch essen.

    people there is nice but very expensive pick up like 2000p for airport and 2500 to the town. They don’t have change as well. Not much to see. Only there for diving and wasn’t that good. 北部这个住的算比较便宜 人还不错但是接送真的太tm贵了. 单程2000起 就40分钟的车程. 我从镇上去机场半个小时也就150p 可以看的出区别有多夸张. 去那边只为了潜水 但潜水并没有很惊艳. 觉得不会再去北部这种地方 很无聊 什么都没有. 如果要去看海牛和apo 尽量从镇上去吧.
