This place could be fantastic, and the staff is why I have given it a 2 star review - without theme it would be one star. The issue is that the web site is somewhat disingenuous. The rooms are definitely not modern and there is no hot water provided - if you are going to charge the prices they charge,... More

Could be a fantastic resort and got 2 stars because of the staff. Certainly not the cheapest and for what it pretends to be not very good.The rooms at best could be described as rustic, meaning there is nothing inside but a small double bed, a shower and a toilet. They sort of work but in the shower, half the... More

We spend on this island three nights. Resort is 10 minutes by local boat from Coron town and offers accommodation in cottages or in two floor building with shared terrace and very nice ocean view. Room was cozy, clean with private bathroom, no AC but fan was fairly enough. They have their own restaurant with bar (mango margharita was the... More

Me and my friend stayed here for five nights and can only say positive things about this resort. First off, you have to realize that this place is on a private Island, 10 minutes boat ride from Coron. This makes it very quiet and remote, exactly as I like it. The pickup from Coron the day we arrived worked as... More

I had a tricky to start to my holiday - poor weather prevented my flight from landing, so I got stuck in Manila for 2 days. I contacted 'Discovering island resort' to inform them of issue and after some time, they adjusted my bill accordingly - so I didn't need to pay for nights I didn't spend here. I stayed... More

A nice resort on a privat island. Very close to Coron town, very convenient boat transfers to town are arranged ar any time. Staff in very helpfull. It's the perfect place for someone that want to be close to town and escape the noise. Bring cash, credit cards are acepted only in the bank in town. Karolis and Sarunas, Lithuania

Firstly I must make mention of the staff, Riza, Venus, Bev and the others were extremely friendly and accommodating. We stayed in room 8 as per recommendations on this site. It does have the best view, however all rooms have a great view :-) The rooms are basic, but clean. There is no hot water, soap, safe, TV or fridge.... More

I traveled during monsoon season, which should have ruined my solo trip to Coron, but Discovery Island is a destination in itself. A mere 5-10min boat ride from the main town, the resort is nestled within the most beautiful of nature, fronting a scenic view of ocean and other distant islands. Do not expect luxury and servants waiting on you... More

Peaceful, great staff, good food; easy access; a home away from home, I felt really comfortable and in love with the place that it was impossible not like the view in front of you. May not be a five star place, as the beach is nothing to speak of, but it compensates for being accommodating to guests' requests, advising you... More
