          The best in Philippines ”

          One of the best night of over 2 months traveling in the Philippines. Views are out of this world and the staff are really helpful giving you the resort style service. Food was delicious for an affordable price. We paid more in places with no extra value as this beautiful spot you are in. The villa we booked is luxurious. They have an AC where online its listed as without. People complained in the reviews about not having a kettle in the room but just ask for hot water and they will bring it to you with no charge. Defiantly include this place on your Itinerary in Coron as it is better than Coron island tour itself which is overrated. Welcome drink was super good.

          Great resort on transit between owners”

          Great potential resort with new ownership doing their best to upgrade - we booked before the tramsfer and can only imagine we would have been very disappointed if some of the recent upgrades had not been done yet. Dive shop is ‘spot on’ excellent and conscientious operational leadership! After 5 days the choice on food menu was running thin but had great dinner across the by at al Faro’s.

          You can have better for way cheaper ! ”

          It looks like this resort is getting old... The room was clean, the view is nice, welcoming drink feel good as well. But for this price (90€) you expect so much better ! The pool was green and dirty The food of the restaurant is nice but super expensive (btw 300 to 700 pesos) and you have no choice because the "resort" is far from any town. There are builder making noise... Making fires and smoke... NO ! I'm sorry but this is not a nice hotel ! You can have better for way cheaper. I value our stay at 1200 pesos/night. So disappointed...

          Terrible ”

          We spent one night and the customer service we received was appalling. When we arrived we were meet by a staff member that told us that the resort was closed, when we presented the booking confirmation they seemed frustrated that as guests we were an inconvenience. The hotel itself is very old, the room was filthy and leaked throughout the rain onto the bed. The location, is very remote from any other town and you are stuck to eat at the restaurant which is over priced and terrible food. Would not recommend to anyone

          Beautiful environment for this only nine villas hotel. ”

          The property is vast and you feel like your almost alone on an island. We enjoyed the quietness of the place the pool and the kayak to explore the area. The view from any place in the resort is magnificent. Staff was nice and helpful. Sometime too noisy... Filipino style. Some breakfast were a bit cheap considering the price of the night. And the food was overpriced and some dish far from being good. However I did enjoy a few dish like the ginger chicken.

          *I knew the place was out of town, so no complain about the location, and seeing pictures online and its a resort, I thought this should be a good place to relax and chill, but i thought there would be at least some shops around, but it was basically in the middle of no where, with a tiny mini shop that is 10 mins walk away that doesnt sell much things. *Knew the room I booked didnt have air-con, cz I thought there'll be windows and shades with natural air breeze coming into the room, but only two old style window without screen in bedroom area, and was recommended not to open it after 6pm, otherwise bugs will fly in. and the room I had the first night was facing West, it was literally like a sauna room in the afternoon. They changed us to another room facing East, which was fine in the afternoon, but again, burning sunrise wakes you up b4 6am, some sort of curtain should be fit on window. *Didnt know the basic cottage had no hot water system, I wouldn't book the place if know

          Are you going to Coron to do island hopping ? Well this place has got a very nice view , nice restaurant , excellent staff BUT .. is one hour away by van from where all the acituvities start (island hopping etc) . We enjoyed it but would never go back . You are isolated in the middle of nowhere with no beach and the trip they offer are three times more expensive then Coron city (if available ) . If you want to say by the pool and enjoy the beautiful view then it is the place for you . Restaurant was very good and staff extremely helpful

          Beautiful views but not worth the money or hassle”

          Pros: Great views of the ocean, beautiful setting, decent breakfast but no variety, friendly reception staff, excellent communication with Rhoanne the manager, dive shop is great and diving is very close to amazing wreck dives, resort is close to Coron's best beaches Cons: Very rugged room. There are no screens, and since we had a no AC cottage, it was hot and damp. There are large slots in the windows and ceilings that allow many bugs and lizards to enter, and there is quite a bit of poop from the lizards and insects throughout the cottage, which will get onto your clothes, bags, beds, etc.. This resort is very physically taxing with the many stone steps without railings (at least 60) that are uneven and steep throughout the resort. The internet is weak and phone service are virtually nonexistent, even with a hot spot. The showers have no water heaters and are cool or cold. The Sun Cottage is very hot because there are no window coverings on any windows and it faces southwest.

          Great view! Serene resort/hotel. Great for laid back staycations”

          Firstly, the views surrounding the hotel is truly picturesque and IG worthy... It even has its own wharf so any boat-ridden tour from the resort would be very convenient for its guests. No complimentary coffee/tea inside the room which is standard for a 5 star resort. The word private should also be looked into in this hotel because the bathrooms overlooking the island are all transparent but sometimes, a staff would be crossing over and might see you while your changing clothes or even pooping. Other than that, its a really great resort with generally very hospitable and polite staff.

          My husband and I went which was perfect after the busy life in Manila. Maybe not suitable for teenagers that want the night life. Stay in Coron for that. This was perfect fit couples. Must go to different small islands. So beautiful. Not much tourist. Very laid back. Not so Much structure as you would find at major hotels. We usually book high end hotels. This is good for the money. And a good experience to have. Good for 3 to 4 days vacation.. Nothing more.

          Depends what you are after, and what your reference points are........”

          There are good things about this resort so lets start with those: The rooms are large, airy and comfortable. The bed is firm (foam matress on a solid base), and given its location, its very peaceful. Its an hour+ from Busuanga airport, and we were charged 2500PHP for the van each way. This was large enough for 2 families with 4 divers and 3 children.The food is tasty and there is a pretty good selection. The diving is well run and efficient - with knowledgable divemasters and guides, together with Gunther, making this side of the operation run very well. Overall, the staff do their best. Ok, now the downsides: Maybe this is a bit too quiet - there are no advertised activities, other than the diving - no trips listed, no one saying let me call you a trike to take you there, so do your research beforehand to know where to ask to go (as there are plenty of great sandy 'desert' islands etc within a 30min boat trip). Don't expect pool service - you'll have to walk up the 30 or so stairs to the restaurant and hopefully find someone to ask for drinks - mealtimes this is ok, but outside of this be prepared to wait...Ah, the pool - its fed from the sea so is salt water - which is fine and is done in many other places, however, despite it looking clean in many resort pictures no one skimmed the leaves (well, I did in the end), and no one had de-slimed the pool bottom in quite a while - again, I did to stop the kids slipping too much. There is NO beach (despite suggestive pictures on the resort website so leave the kids buckets and spades at home). Whilst the food is good it is generally overpriced for the area; this certainly applies to fruit juices and drinks in general. Expect to be running at ~4000PHP/day for 2 adults and 1 child for 3 meals and a few drinks. This is about twice to three times what you'll pay a short trike ride away in Concepion where there are 3 restaurants, who are attentive. Food is cooked to order which means you may have to wait, and wait, and wait -

          Great diving and nice rooms. Food and drinks are good but highly over priced. Pool resembles a pond. No Wifi connection. Staff try hard but severely lacking management and attention to detail. Dive centre is excellent but for the money the resort is far from good value.....

          Dear Simon, Please be informed that the Resort has a wifi now and I am working on putting television, aircon and intercom on all rooms. I am hoping to finish all these improvements by 2018. We also has a lot of activities now in the Resort. I am delighted to inform you that we found best solution for our saltwater swimming pool not to look like a pond. I just took over the business beginning of February this year so I believe I havent met you in person but I still want to extend my apologies for any inconvenience during your stay in our Resort and also to inform you about the improvements that we made to make guests enjoy their stay with us. Kind Regards, Rhoanne Bolohabo Resort Manager
