Expensive place, not good value for money. Staff is unkind and inflexible, mostly after more money. Restaurant was truly very poor, serving noodles from the prefab dried package. You cannot swim at the place or anywhere near. Rooms were spacious and clean,nice views.

Great place to stay in if you want peace & tranquility. It's in an island so you have to take a short boat ride going to and from the town. All the staff are friendly & helpful. The owner was very hands on & mingles with the guests. My husband & I really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this...

This is an island resort few minutes boat ride from the pier of coron. They provide you with boat to the town (vice versa) but you have to make sure to give an allowance for the timing as they are sometimes late. You have to inform the reception the time you need the boat from the resort and when you...

While we certainly enjoyed our stay at this hotel, a couple of things can be said. First, there is pretty much nothing to do on the hotel's little island. The beach/swimming area isn't really doable as the water is quite dirty and there can be jellyfish about. Second, with our family it became sort of a joke that there was...

The place is quite and nice and peaceful, u can still hear the voices of motorbikes from the town but very faintly and only if the motor bikes are having a very loud noise. When you arrive in coron at the airport, there is a van that takes each traveler to his hotel as there is a coordinator in the...

Coron was our first stop on a four week tour of the Philippines. We stayed four nights at the Discovery Island resort. You take a boat to the island, so it was very private and quiet compared to Coron town. The staff was great. Enjoyed the breakfast and coffee that were reasonably priced. There was one restaurant on the island,...

Sorry I have to write this but if I ask a dive master to stop doing dangerous things on a dive (I am an instructor so not just some nambie pambie n00b) and then they go ahead and ignore me I have to tell people to watch out. Firstly sharing air at 20 meters and continuing the dive because someone...

Discovery Island Resort is paradise on earth. It is simply beautiful. We stayed for 4 night. The rooms were clean, spacious and quiet. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly.

Lovely tiny island, a micro-paradise where you also can find people who enjoy the simple perfect thing in life such the fresh air, beautiful clouds and even the rain on your face. The staff is very kind and the food is great. Very convenient for diving the wrecks, thermo-climes lakes, reefs and coral garden around. We originally wanted to spend...
