Coming down from the van, the first impression is that we made a wrong turn somewhere Because the facade didn't look much like a resort. Going thru the gate and down the pathway, it's literally a ghost town. No one was there to welcome guests, no reception desk in sight. Then after about 5 minutes, a woman appears and checks... More

We stayed in family rooms and standard room. We chose this resort since Greenviews was fully booked. Firstly we had huge problems with booking and payment through Hammington Tours & Travels. Better to book directly with resort and avoid the hassles. ++++ Fabulous view of the bay & amazing sunsets Lovely small garden and bar facing the bay Breakfasts served... More

We stayed in a Superior Room with Seaview for 2 nights. (Note: the sea isn't right in front of your room. We had a garden and some cottages slightly blocking our view) The room was very large There wasn't a proper mattress (only 2" foam pad). The shower had great shower pressure and there was hot water! I received great... More

We arrived at the hotel around 1:30am after a long journey from Puerto Princesa and were quickly taken to our room and assured that check in formalities would be taken care of in the morning. This was greatly appreciated. First impressions of the room was that it was basic but clean. The bed was relatively comfortable and the bathroom was... More

I did not have problems with the booking at this resort as the owner quickly replies to all my inquiries. Unfortunately the resort did not meet what I expected. The rooms are not clean as I expected it to be. Towels and bedsheets are old and dirty, good thing I always bring my towel. I just used by sarong for.... More

This resort is located directly on Corong Corong beach, a short tricycle ride away from the town. Its location is great to get away from the noise, yet close enough to eat/shop in town. We stayed in the VIP room and it was really great. Spacious room and good facilities. The balcony was huge and the views of the sunset... More

Admittedly this place is a little higher than our general price range but we'd heard great things about Corong Corong beach and unfortunately there were no rooms at Greenviews just down the beach (who also do excellent meals with specials each day). So with the reviews on here we thought we'd chance it. Everything was fine and the rooms were... More

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
