Sea Horse Guest House
Show reviews that mention
I stayed in this guest house for 5 days and 5 nights in a dormitory type of room. The best about the place is its location. It's right at the middle of the town where accessibility to any point of interest is easy. Staff are courteous and helpful. Food is somehow ok, facilities are of course not high end ok. Our room is quite cold even with AC off. Drinking water is limitless even coffee in the morning. All in all it is value for money, with its cheap price you can't ask for anything more.. except for the internet connection. I definitely recommend Sea Horse Guest House to other tourists planning to go to Coron.
Large Room w/Queen Bed - Rm # 4 - Comfortable Thick Mattress !!”
This place was a surprise, but a very good shot-in-the-dark choice. The room & the bathroom were extra LARGE. Most rooms are bunk bed dorm style rooms for backpackers, but this one was a private room. Excellent HOT shower. No fridge. No electric kettle (I bring my own.). Good TV. Wifi worked everywhere. No elevator. Temp adjustable A/C worked great. Only 2 choices for the included breakfast (6am - 9am). Choose the corned beef, skip the tocino (not very good). All you can drink excellent brewed arabica coffee, and Lipton tea bags w/hot water too. Eat on the 4th floor open air dining area. 2 doors down is the WG Diner for lunch and dinner. Good food & cheap drinks. Try their Shrimp w/fried noodles. Awesome !! Beers and sodas are just 38 pesos each. The best burger & french fries I found in all of Coron Skip the pizza - frozen cardboard. The best pizza with freshly made crust is across the street @ the Sea Dive Restaurant (320 pesos, order w/extra cheese, no extra charge). Also across the street is an outdoor sit-down Filipino eatery serving Filipino street food. You'll know where it is bcoz the thick charcoal smoke billows everywhere. You'd swear the place was on fire and burning to the ground. It's always crowded. When coming from the airport, don't worry about pre-ordering a van. There will be 20+ vans out there all wanting your business. Set fare is 150 pesos one-way per person to Coron Town. No haggling. Sea Horse is definitely a place to stay again, with Rm 4 having probably the most comfortable mattress in Coron. We stayed here 10 days. The staff was most welcoming.
Excellent but weak signal for 3G/LTE, wifi available in reception only”
Enjoyed our stay in Coron with Sea Horse Guest House as our accommodation. Excellent location, great staff, clean rooms, well-maintained facilities. Value-for-money since all bookings included breakfast (food in Coron is expensive). Except for the lack of wifi and the weak signal for 3G/LTE, this is a great place to stay!
The room where we stayed in is clean and comfy. They make-up room the rooms everyday. The breakfast was pretty good too. We get to have two slices of banana and oranges as sides. Must-see places and tours in Coron is very near from Sea Horse Guest House, mostly just a walking distance. Although Wifi was pretty slow inside the rooms.
Bunk Bed- Mixed Dorm ”
The staffs are very welcoming, accommodating and friendly. The typical Filipino hospitality. They'll assist you to whatever you need. The food, even though they only have 3 menus everyday, is okay, don't expect too much cuz you didn't pay that much. The room was nice too, have curtains and aircon. The comforters and bed are really nice and warm, they've got cabinet per bed but there's no lock, I asked the satff if there's lock available but he said no, and if I want to, I can provide it on my own, but I didn't get some cuz I feel like my stuffs are safe. Overall, my stay at Sea Horse Guest House is suberb, gonna stay here again if I'll go back to coron.
Peaceful, Restful Nights for Coron Backpackers”
I was suppose to arrive at Coron one day earlier but due to the inclement weather the Busuanga airport, our plane didn't land and was diverted back to Manila. My flight was rebooked next day. I was hoping to rebook my 2 nights reservation but there was no contact number of the hotel so I sent a request at Agoda. I didn't expect the response would be that fast and the hotel granted my request. I asked Agoda to provide me the hotel's number and gave me Angela's (hotel's GM) number. She did mention that Agoda called her about my request. She helped arrange for an airport transfer from Busuanga airport to the hotel (since the hotel is just new) for a reasonable fee. When I arrived at Seahorse, I was greeted by the hotel receptionist, and was courteous to direct me to my dorm room. There was already one occupant in the room, but I didn't mind, as this is common to any backpacker shacks. But what impressed me is the dorm room design itself, very clean, the bed is so comfortable, the shower room (with heater) was separated from the toilet room (good idea since both are communal to dorm mates), and has a locker per bed (there were 2 double-deck beds) to keep your stuff. The room has an aircon and a fan. The receptionist helped me find a good Coron tour at Calamian travels next day. He told me that any Seahorse guest can use Sunz En swimming pool area from 10am until 3pm for free. If for improvements, the hotel might consider putting a WIFI hotspot in 3rd level as the WIFI from the 2nd level can't reach our rooms. Also, put a towel hanger on each shower room. I will definitely stay at Seahorse when I come back to Coron with my fellow backpackers. For sure the Seahorse will be fully operational by then. There's so much left for me to do at Coron. Special mention to Alvin and Ralph (receptionists) for their excellent hospitality.
Location was great, as it was located very near to the dock, very convenient when you have day tours planned for your trip. Staff were all so pleasant and accommodating, and would gladly assist you with your needs. You basically get what you pay for here since it's a hostel. Place in general was a bit old and need some renovating and repainting, especially with the toilets. Rooms and beds were alright. Wifi at the hostel did not work during my whole stay, would suggest that you get a local sim and use data instead and access internet from the roofdeck. Breakfast was okay too, but would have been better if given more options and bigger serving. They had unlimited coffee and tea during breakfast time. Tip: ask for towels and tissue paper from the front desk, they'd be glad to provide you with it during your stay. Overall, I would recommend Sea Horse Guest House and would stay again when I get to visit Coron!
Since you’ll be out the whole day, all you need for your stay in coron is somewhere to sleep and bathe which is safe, clean, with air condition (since its hot!), and hot shower to end your day! And Sea Horse guesthouse gives you all that! They also have wifi but is slow as everywhere else in Coron :( They also serve breakfast at the roof deck for free! Oh, and the view in their roof deck is amazing! I always look forward to eating my breakfast just to see that view (I could really get used to waking up and having breakfast there hahahaha). Their staff are so accommodating and helpful. I had broken my glasses the night before and don’t know what to do. Its a good thing I asked the guy in the front desk for help and he really fixed it! They also are helpful in pointing out places to go or eat. My only negative comment would be that there were no towels! But hey atleast they have hot shower and breakfast :)
Really great guest house for solo traveler.”
The location is located within the town, walking distance from most restaurants and food stalls. What I like it the most is the value for money, I think it is more than what your money paid. I spent around 1,300 pesos for 3D2N, which includes breakfast. During my stay, I didn't see any Filipino guest, most guest were foreigners specially solo traveler and couples. The only downside of it, I guess, is the bathroom/toilet. Though it is clean and has an exhaust fan, the toilet only has only tissue paper, there is neither bidet nor faucet. Their shower room has also a heater. In terms of breakfast, you have to choose whether continental or 'Pinoy' breakfast (Tocino or corned beef), both with fruits (in my case, banana and orange) and egg. Coffee and tea are also included. Some guesthouse do not offer breakfast especially with only approx 400pesos per night. There check-in time is strictly 2pm, but fear not, the staff will let you leave your bag in their counter. In my case, they let me check-in an hour earlier. The staffs are so friendly and consistent. Another PLUS is that they will let you use the SUNZ EN CORON hotel swimming pool (for limited time, of course, 10am - 4pm only) since both guesthouse and sunz en coron hotel are under the same management. This is recommended for solo traveler, and for group of 3-4pax. Like I said, it has a superb review for value for money, besides you went to coron to enjoy the tour and island and not to stay indoor :) They have fast wifi too, unfortunately, you can only access it outside your room.
Wonderful Sea Horse”
We originally booked 1 night at Sea Horse, to allow ourselves time to get into Coron and explore the alternatives, see what else was around and if there were other places on the island that would allow for a comfortable weeks stay on the island. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the room and of the roof terrace/breakfast area. The staff here have been so helpful with arranging travel around the island and all our other general questions we feel that they need special mention. This is aside from them always being extremely courteous and welcoming. We have enjoyed the stay so much we have booked another 4 nights here. Both times, staying in the dorm rooms. Definitely worth staying here if you're on a budget.
Great Location and Staff, Best Customer Service”
Seahorse Guest house was a nice place to stay in coron, if you are in a budget. The room rate was cheap but the service and accomodation you can get is superb.. We had a deluxe room with a city view and partial sea view. They have a nice roof top where you can have your breakfast. Though the breakfast was just so simple not much of a variety. I hope they can have other menus for breakfast. The staff was very accomodating. They will help you book the island tour if you dont have yet. They can also book airport transfer just simply inform them and they will be glady to assist the guest. They also recommend us a good restaurant to eat and drink some beer. Sea Dive Restaurant is a must try with an amazong view and also La Sirentta.
3D2N at Coron”
The cost for each night at Sea Horse Guest House is affordable and budget-friendly. The staffs are accommodating and the breakfast is delicious. The location is also good since it is in the Coron Town Proper and near the restaurants and other establishments. The only downside is the availability of towels and a little space for each person inside the 4-bunk bed dormitory.
Best place to stay in Coron Town”
We are amazed that for the price of SeaHorse, the rooms and service are exceptional. The staff was the very friendly and very helpful (both dayshift & nightshift) & we enjoyed talking with them. The room is perfect. Clean comfy sheets, well-lit, spacious, chic design, and we even have a view of the sea (3rd floor room8). We had a very deep sleep during our stay (2nights). We moved to another resort (Coral Bay) and hotel (Villa Khadine) just to explore other options and they were both terrible! We kept wishing we stayed in SeaHorse all throughout the trip! Location is perfect also as we walked everywhere-- food stalls were across the street and also sari-sari stores, and the ports for the tours were nearby. This saved us tricycle fare & from limited dining options. There is also a security guard and CCTV cameras which made me feel safe. As a frequest world traveller, I have stayed in 5star hotels and resorts, as well as budget hostels/B&Bs here & abroad-- and i rarely write reviews unless they really deserve it. I highly recommend SeaHorse Guesthouse to everyone and I cannot wait for my next trip to Coron so I can stay here again. 5STARS! Thank you very much!
Great location, best sunset view!”
It was such a nice stay that i extended my stay in Coron at Sea Horse. Location couldn't be better - close to restaurants and most dive shops. Dorms are really clean and comfortable. Staff is very helpful and the terrace is a great place for a beer and meet people. I totally recommend Sea Horse. And i hope i come back soon.
Sea Horse Guest House is very good and recommendable. Very accommodating staff. All-smiles receptionists (Hi Kuya! Thanks for your hospitality!) Delicious and filling breakfasts, albeit very limited choices. You would feel at home in no time.
The de luxe room is quite huge with its queen size bed, it’s nice, however, it would be nicer if the room have built in cabinet and cooler AC. We requested to have the room be cleaned after we leave for our tour. The staffs are courteous, helpful and friendly. The breakfast is good though you’ll only have 3 choices. Wifi and network signal is weak at our room. Very good location because it’s near to the church, convenience stores, restaurants, bars, laundry shop, coron wet market, and the port. You can walk from the guest house to Mt. Tapyas. Recommended for those who travel on a budget and likes a nice room to stay after a long tiring day. :)
Value to Money”
My stay with seahorse guesthouse has been definitely amazing. It is my first time to experience being in a backpacker house and it was amazing. First is the accommodation is definitely comfortable. You have your own bed and you get to bond with the other guests in the room. I got a dorm room with four beds inside. There is a bathroom, a comfort room and a sink for vanity purposes. I just didn't like the idea of separating the bathroom with the comfort room. Probably just my preference because I like to take a bath and at the same time do the thing on the same room. There are no water to wash your booty on the comfort room so you would have to spend for tissue. The mattress in the room is in good condition and you have your own comfortable comforter and a pillow. Lockers are also provided inside the room. The receptionist is definitely accommodating to all request. He would definitely tell you what is possible and what is not. Again, you are in a backpacker accommodation and the room is not yours so please respect everyone inside. You can definitely find a lot of restaurants just right outside the guesthouse. You have your own selection of Chinese, Korean, and American restaurants. For Pinoys out there, there are a lot Filipino restaurants as well. Tours can be arranged with the hotel and definitely it is a good deal. During my stay I did not avail the town tour because most of the tourist attraction can be easily accessed by walking. The island hopping activity was definitely caught in the middle of a typhoon during my stay. I hope that everyone is okay and that everything is fine. I also meet a lot of interesting people. Sonya, if you get to read this please add me on facebook email@example.com. Thank you. I will definitely come back.
worth the splurge”
Expensive for the Philippines, Sea Horse is worth the splurge for a night or two when looking for a place with a hot shower in Coron. Easy walk to shops, restaurants, dive centers; really nice rooftop area with decent wifi (for Coron, this is still the Philippines). Breakfast is basic but well done.
The staff was super friendly and welcoming”
The 4 bedroom was more than comfortable! The only thing I didn't like was the shower (very small and could be cleaner). There are plenty of hooks in the room, which was good! Breakfast on the fourth floor is just amazing as you get to see the ocean from there. I felt refreshed every morning having breakfast up there. The staff was super helpful and nice! The location is just super, in the middle of everything, everything is in walking distance! Also a big plus, the guest at Sea Horse have the access to the swimming pool in another resort! I had a great time at Sea Horse! Everything was incredible during my stay!
Bunk Bed with Breakfast”
Sea Horse Guest house was reasonable for the price, with breakfast included and at the centre of Coron Town. Rooms are small but with A/C and big fan. You'll get 10% discount on the Spa down the road if you stay here which was nice.
