'Great Service...Amazing View'”
Being a nature lover, I love this place. The view is amazing, relaxing and spectacular. I enjoyed the fishing and private island hopping the hotel arranged for us...Just 10 minutes to the Airport. I definitely comeback and stay here again next time..
The river house is perfect option I think one of the beat what you can find in Coron dont worry about tours they can manage dor you everything ,the nature what is around is speechless just amazing perfect food and staff!!! best place where to stay!
Scenic location, away from the hustle and bustle”
Pros: nature all around you, super private location, spacious rooms and bathrooms, close to airport, friendly staff Cons: Since you are far away from Coron Town (45 minute drive), expect to pay at least 2,500 pesos (per vehicle) for a tour to pick you or your group up and drop you or your group off back at the hotel. You can also haggle that price down.
I was umming and ahhing for a while about whether to book the river house as it's located on the other side of Coron. If you're in the same predicament... Just book it! Judith the owner was absolutely fantastic. She was so accommodating to every single guest- she went out of her way to call the ferry companies when we couldn't buy tickets, she gave me medicine when I was sick, she organised a scooter to be at the river house when we arrived so that we could use it and organised an inroom massage for me at a great price (550 PHP). They have a lot of tours run through the hotel which are very well priced. Highly recommend doing the firefly tour (the stars and plankton are amazing extras!) And doing the island hopping tour. We had a private boat, esky filled with drinks and lunch and spent the day at three oustanding islands that we had all to ourselves. Cannot recommend this place enough. Value for money is an understatement. And the view will leave you speechless!
we only had an overnight stay here. the place is quiet, feels private and perfect for honeymoon. the location is great unless you plan to tour Coron town, it is quite far but they offer reasonable tour packages. busuanga airport is just 10 to 15 mins away. the view is amazing. since this place is one with nature, you have to accept that some flying creatures tend to stay there at night as well. food choices is limited but try their porkchop and lamayo breakfast, they have great quality home grown papaya for free. staffs are all friendly. they have corkages for outside food and drinks.
Best stay ever. ”
Spectacular hillside setting in the jungle above the river. Only 9km from the airport. Quiet and scenic! Each room is actually a separate little villa. Order lunch to-go, and their boat will take you island hopping. Food, service, and accomodations are all EXCELLENT. Thank you for a wonderful visit. J & C.
This is the place for a honeymoon!”
Optimize your stay in Coron and stay here for at least two nights. We loved the room, food and the island hopping they offered. This is the place for a honeymoon! Definitely bang for the buck!
Secluded but beautiful”
The Riverhouse is a beautiful place - set in a forest area with a stunning view of the river. The staff are wonderful - really friendly and helpful and they generally have very good English. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. There were some ants around, especially on the balcony, but as it's in the middle of a forest, you're staying in their territory! It's really peaceful with hot water, good air con and delicious fresh-cooked food in the restaurant. The Wi-Fi in the restaurant was good, but not so good in the rooms. They offer a lot of trips and tours, including kayaks for hire, and helped me to organise a tricycle into the town (1000P instead of the 2000P for their van). They are affiliated with the Dugong Dive centre, which was what made me choose to stay there, but in hindsight the dive centre is overpriced and you can get what they offer for a better price in Coron Town. Only downside to The Riverhouse is that it is very far away from anything - 45mins from Coron town and nothing nearby to even go for a short walk to. It's up a long dirt track from the nearest village. I enjoyed the peace and quiet while I was there and if you just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the towns, it's perfect. It's also worth noting that it is a steep climb up and down the uneven steps to their pier if you're taking any boat trips - it would be a challenge for anyone not in reasonably good health or who is not very mobile.
Quiet hideaway in marvellous space”
The Riverhouse is not situated in a touristic hotspot: overlooking a river-like fjord amidst the mangorves you find a quiet place off the beaten track. The food is delicious, the rooms spacy and comfortable, and the vicinity to the airport is great for all those who habe to leave early. Don't miss a private island hopping tour with a fisherman: they know the best places and the calmest passages between the islands ...
Would have loved to spend more time here!”
Good rooms, good food, good service and staff. Our boat island hopping tours started late (partly because I informed them late) but we were able to hop on a small boat, and took a unique adventure on its own to awesome islands and sights. I didn't know they offered bike tours also so would probably check it out once I come back. If I were to nitpick, I'd say they could cut cost on transportation in and out of the place. But I really understand why since their place is not that accessible so van/service rates are understandably higher than usual. Our experience was cut-short because we had to leave the next day but Riverhouse is just a very serene place to stay. The price is just right and the staff and our boatman were very helpful - even the owners were engaging and just friendly! I couldn't say more positive things about this place and the overall experience that I and my wife had capped our Coron stay to a positive note.
Super friendly staff! Very clean, silent and bright rooms with amazing view! Delicious food.
Hands down our favourite guesthouse during our time in the Philippines. Kind staff, generous rooms made it so easy for our one night stay before flying out to Manila. Wish we could've stayed here longer. The firefly tour was a real highlight. Also saw bioluminescence for the first time! Thanks again for a lovely stay
We spent a night in the riverhouse after a few days in coron. We figured to stay because its closer to the airport (10-15 mins away) and the ambiance seems nice for a relaxing day. When we got there, we were immediately welcomed by mindful and courteous staff with our welcome drinks. They let us do an eary check in since we got there around 1pm. I recommend getting the deluxe room because the view of the river is astounding. The rooms are really clean, working TV with cable and 200 channels, wall to ceiling sliding door leading to your terrace, clean bathroom (hot and cold shower) and the area is cool sometimes u dont need the AC anymore :) THE FOOD IS EXQUISITE. the owner, Mr H and Ms Judith are very much hands on, they greet guests and mr H who seems like a food enthusiast walks u through his menu like a pro. We also did kayaking and the private beach picnic which was the best!!! A private island all to me and my beau! We really had a great time. Will be back soon!!!!
Far from the town, but the best service I've had ever.”
We were made aware that this was far off downtown Coron, but we didn't mind. We were looking for a more serene place to stay in, and The Riverhouse didn't disappoint. It's one of those off the beaten path adventures that would surprise you during your Coron experience. The staff were awesome! They were proactive to help you with anything, they even provided things we didn't ask for just to make sure we had a good time. Great value for money!
the silence is deafening, a slice of heaven in the Philippines ”
The owners treated us like family and the girls that worked in the restaurant provided great customer service and really know there job, the breakfast was great and the pork sing again was amazing, I will definitely return for some relaxation, salaamat
We loved our stay”
We were welcomed by Ms. Judith herself along with responsive staff and welcome drinks which were very refreshing. We loved everything about our stay there. Ms. Judith and the staff were very attentive to our needs. The island hopping tour arranged by the facility was perfect during our first day. They also helped us arrange other tours in Coron island. It located about 45 minutes from the town proper but it is the perfect location if you're looking for a calm and relaxing escape. They really took great care of us during our stay and even went above and beyond in looking for a birthday cake for my daughter (our favorite dulce de leche cake so far!). Wish we could have stayed longer.
Amazing view from the restaurant! So peaceful, beautiful... truly the best place to relax. You have to go fir their private tour! Wonderful! we did snorkeling in all the islands we went to... the only downside is, if you would like to go for the 7 lakes tour in Coron Town you would have to pay 2,000 return for their van service. Also the food is fantatsic! love their Aglio Olio and breakfast! ^_^
Unexpected view and unexpected experience”
I had hard travel for my business and finally I had one day to take a rest so I forced my wife to stay in here and both of us, we really loved this place. From Check-in to until Check-out, services were all fantastic and well accomodated us. Food for breakfast was quite simple but very good. I normally do not eat bread but dutch sytle of bread made me crazy in morning. In night time, dinner (Ox tough) made me crazy. After dinner, we had night tour as recommanded(0nly 800peso for one boat). You can see beautiful stars on Sky, on Land and inside water (You will know what I mean if you experienced). Overall, I choosed this hotel to come back again until my end of life. Hungry for more...!
A place for those who value privacy and want to relax in a quiet location. This is the place.”
Riverhouse serves good food. I like their version of lengua with wild mushrooms. We checked-in at this place after staying a couple of nights in another hotel near Coron town center. We decided to spend the remaining days of our holiday near the airport and away from where most of the tourists stay. We took the private island hopping picnic offered by Riverhouse. We paid 2,500 pesos visiting three private beach destinations. I prefer this kind of beach hopping option to the package tours offered by many tour operators because we were not pressured by time-bound itineraries of packages that load-up a minimum of ten tourists each trip with specific starting and finishing times. I will come back to Riverhouse on my next nature-tripping holiday.
3 days in fantastic place”
the river is not river. it is sea water. it just looks like river because of landscape ot the place. but it was not important to my family while stayng at the river house. i and my daughter rented the kayak and handled kayak on the river. although we could'nt enjoy it for enough hours because of my flight time coming back to Manila, it was fantastic experience to cruise through mangrove forest on the river handling the kayak. the people taking good care of the river house..... H, Judith, Elisa, and the others,..... i want to say "thank u !". i will visit Coron and The River House again if God bless me once more.
