For 3 months been planning where to stay in El Nido that is perfect for my family. Gladly found it at tripadvisor. The place is so simple yet brought serenity during our stay. The place is just 5 minutes away from town easy access from market and other restaurant and resorts. A tricycle cab is the main transportation of the... More

Coral Bay is a fantastic place to stay. The owners are down to earth, and knowledgable about the the surrounding area. They are helpful and bend over backwards to help. The staff are friendly and helpful and will go out of their way to help you. The front cabins are amazing. Look forward to when they have 24 hr electricity,... More

First we stayed the next hotel which was nice but noisy. As we didnt want to extend our staying there anymore we started to find a new and more comfortable place to stay. We were looking about at least 10-12 possibilities and found this hotel the best for value of money and location and the view to the bay. Also... More

We stayed in the quiet and nice little place during our visit to Palawan in May 2014. The "resort" is situated a few kilometers from El Nido town along the bay of Corong Corong and is much quitter than El Nido accommodations. The place consists of a few beach cottages and rooms and the first floor cottage overlooking the bay... More

This resort is just outside El Nido town proper, and i must say we were pleased with the location. Corong Corong is more quite and this side of the bay offers the most amazing sunset i have ever seen. We booked the beach front cottage, and we liked it. The room is spacious enough with a comfortable bathroom and A/C.... More

Came here with a group of friends. Transportation from Puerto Princesa with a private van (only 6 of us passengers) cost 14,000.00 pesos round trip. Did the arrangement with the owner Mr. Robert Horsley who is a very kind man. Travel took us a little less than 5 hours. We arrived around 13:00 and was greeted by a nice lady... More

This is exactly what we were looking for. Simple rooms, quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of El Nido town, and lovely and helpful staff. Although part of the resort is under construction and their kitchen is being redone, we still had the best breakfast here. Homemade bread, banana pancakes, eggs, bacon, coffee, bananas: all delivered to our... More

Nice resort in Corong Corong (50 pesos by tricycle from El Nido beach) Confortable and clean rooms. The view from the garden is beautiful, even is the beach is nothing really special. Good breakfast. Price a bit high but then El Nido is not cheap anymore so I guess that's one of the best option anyway. One thing that could... More

We stayed there just 4 nights. The resort not big one, but nice designed. Filipino's girls who working there just great, so friendly and responsive. Rooms are nice and clean, but the issues is a water pressure in shower and electricity: water pressure really weak, it's not dependent from electricity whatever they told you, and electricity is received from town...
