                Pros -staff are friendly and accomodating -nice roof top sunset view Cons -breakfast is disappointing -my phone was lost inside the room after we came back from tour. I'm very sure it was there when we left for island tour. -you can get similar or better hotel experience at a lesser price -location is a little far so tricycle ride is more expensive

                We stayed in their Pride room which was amazing! There’s loads of complimentary snacks in which they replenish eveyday. Their restaurant is very beautiful and food was delicious. Their STAFF were all very friendly and helpful and made our stay there easier. It is also near the town proper in which you can just get a tricyle ride for about 20 to 30 Philippine pesos. We really enjoyed our stay and most especially the tour. We chose tour A with our own private boat which ( I highly recommend) to really enjoy your time. Over all my partner and I are both highly satisfied with our stay and would definitely come back. Thank you The Funny Lion ❤️

                Top notch service. I asked a simple complimentary birthday cake for my son, and what they did was over and beyond my expectations — a whole room setup with balloons, animals made from folded towels, and a happy birthday sign. Their pool os great and spacious, and food is expensive as expected for hotel food but they make up for it for taste and large servings. Will definitely comeback

                Commendable customer service. Staff were helpful and patiently addressed our queries, and requests. They also provide tour booking and recommendations on the great restaurants in the area. The location is safe in the sense that it is not crowded but strategically located in an area not to far from the city center.

                The room was exceptionally clean! The staff was Super friendly and is always ready to serve and help you! When entering the room, they provide a complimentary free goodie plus fruits and drinks in the minibar. Free snacks at the poolside from 3-5pm and a one for one cocktails from 4-7pm at the rooftop bar. The rooftop bar also had a stunning view! The only downside is that it’s a little inconvenient to get to the downtown, you have to get there via tricycle which cost 25peso/pax. Other than that, everything was perfect!

                Amazing rooftop Jacuzzi ”
                Lovely rooms and very comfy bed. The rooftop Jacuzzi overlooking Coron Bay was a highlight. Kenneth was very attentive providing us (with one too many) 241 cocktails whilst watching the sunset. The pool is nice but the smell of sewage made my stomach churn and there were constant building works next door, which wasn't relaxing, but appreciate that it's out of the hotels control. The breakfast was nice and the free cocktails by the pool were great (although 9.30am was sometimes a little too early for gin and vodka!) The massage wasn't great as they had to call an external therapist who was miserable and couldn't really be bothered. The hotel appears to be one of the best on Coron and we would really recommend staying here.

                Great Staff is the Secret Behind the Funny Lion!”
                The best part about the Funny Lion is it's staff. They are the backbone of the hotel, always friendly and working hard to make sure their guests are happy. The second best thing is the Rooftop Bar -- it has spectacular views and is a fantastic place to unwind and watch the sunset (maybe from one of the two jacuzzi tubs)! The Hunt restaurant is average and over-priced, but their breakfast buffets are excellent and the atmosphere is nice too. Rooms are comfortable but nothing special and the lighting in the bathrooms is very dim. I felt like I needed to bring my iPhone flashlight everytime I used the facilities! All in all, if you enjoy a quiet place off the main strip and don't mind taking a trike to town, then I would seriously consider staying here. They also have an inviting pool that tempts you to take dip--indulge!

                We had an exceptional time during our stay at the funny lion. The staff couldn't do enough for us to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The only thing I would suggest/enquire about is whether this hotel has the required Environment clearance certificate (ECC) since we saw a local news article during our stay which suggested that when the authorities conducted an audit on the various hotels/resorts, about 80% failed to comply or had no ECC certificate which is certainly disturbing. I for one, would be enquiring about this certificate if and when we visit these islands (inc El Nido) again since the government is mulling closing down these islands in line with Boracay if the local authorities and establishment owners do not get their act together. I don't want to sound preachy but as travellers we have a responsibility to not condone this type of behaviour where local establishments violate the rules and destroy the local eco system.

                Our stay at The Funny Lion was so good I can't stop raving to everyone when I got home. The infinity pool and Jacuzzi was divine! The rooftop bar where you can watch the sunset in a Jacuzzi while enjoying happy hour was amazing! But most of all, the staff are the best in the world! Kenneth & Richard & Earl & every single person made us feel so welcomed & genuinely cared about our day. The hotel also helped us book 3 day trips which were all awesome. Coron is a heavenly place. Honestly, can't rate this hotel more highly, hope to come back soon!

                I would highly recommend staying at the Funny Lion if you're headed to Coron. The hotel rooms are very clean. The massage services were loved by everyone in our group. The staff makes great cocktails; be sure to order a Mango-colada! The happy hour on the roof deck is great and you can catch beautiful sunsets from that vantage point. The location is a short trike ride into town. All staff at the Funny Lion was friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay.

                We strongly recommend this hotel. You will receive welcome gifts in the room which is a nice touch. The staff are very friendly and attentive! The food in the restaurant is great probably the best in Coron try the spice octopus. The view from the top flour bar is amazing there are two hot tubs there. Great place to be at sunset! The infinity pool is really nice too you will receive SPA treats there a long with cold water.

                The cleanliness and coziness of the room is beyond my expectation. Their consumable minibar with local sweets make me happy and their breakfast buffet is good as it looks too. I commend the staff for a job well done in making their guests feel valued. All our requests were attended promptly. Kudos!! If there is one thing I don't like about the property, it is the location. Far from the market and restaurants, and since the streets are not well lit going back to the hotel at night is alarming. Nonetheless, highly recommended.
