Spent nearly a week there and took two cottages with no AC. For the time of the year this was totally fine and not too hot. The resort is really just next to Coron and can easily be reached via a 10-15 min boat ride. Also it is easy during your stay to go back and forth if you need...

The way to get to the island is by boat only from Coron town. We stayed here for 4 nights. The staff are friendly and the food at the restaurant is resonably priced. Boat cost to town is 100 pesos pp and the children is free. The water coming out from the tap came from a deep well which had...

I wish I could write a review on booking.com too as I loved this place. Basic, simple, comfy, great food, fab views, great tours, lovely staff! It's got the lot. We were there for a week and had for fantastic dives, a lake, a coral garden and two wrecks. We also went on a day trip and took the boat...

Leaving the madness of Manila, where traffic moves at a snail's pace, we flew to Busuanga airport on the island of Coron. The town of Coron itself is not very attractive, as there are lots of little hucksters shops and crazy tricycle taxis zooming up and down the street, creating a terrible racket, rubbish lying around attracting flies and pedlars...

Overall a good resort and value for money. Me and my family stayed here for four days. Resort is located on an Island 7 mins away from coron city. It is very quiet because of its distance away from town. The hotel staff is a big plus and were very helpful in giving info about town and boat tours. Overall...

The resort is on a small island which is very peaceful. The rooms are basic but we were there to dive and enjoy the beautiful scenery, the rooms are a place to sleep, and contrary to what other reviews have said, we did have hot water to shower! The food is really good, probably the best fish and chips we've...

The staff (Dimple, Riza, Erroll, Reynaud) are attentive and helpful, the island is beautiful, the beds are very comfortable, and the food is the best you're likely to find in Coron. Coron town itself is a bit of a dump, so being on a private island away from the grime and chaos of the town was ideal. Will definitely stay...

We like to be at quiet places instead of in a city. So if you feel the same way, than this place is perfect! We stayed here 2 nights and were sad to leave. The room we got was nicer than we expected. The food is affordable and really nice. And the staff is so friendly and helpful! We dived...

We booked via Internet and upgraded ones we arrived and realise no aircon in the room and that would have been hell on heart .

Our stay was simply awesome. The staff here are absolutely wonderful and just so friendly and accommodating. I really felt as if we became friends and the island felt like our second home for the 4 days we were there. We were travelling with our 1 year, 10 month old daughter and the staff did everything to accommodate us even...
