I brought group of 27 people here, and we loved it! We like quiet out of the way places, so this was the perfect match for us. We were accommodated easily, yet never felt crowded. With nature all around, and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and ocean it's easy to feel you're in the middle of nowhere! it's only... More

Even though we got soaked on the boat on the way there, they made it up to us with great service, lodging and food. Island hopping tour is a must! It is a place I'd definitely recommend to friends in the future!

Our family (two kids six and four years old) stayed there 5 nights in mid of Dec 2014. Really relaxing time, stuff are professionals. We did island hopping, diving, snorkeling, relaxing on nearby island´s beautiful beaches. I forgot kayaking. Main beach is not suitable for swimming, but I think, it is not important, this place is about boat trips. Yes,... More

We went for scuba diving and it was fantastic. The WW2 wrecks were fabolous and we took the pass island tour wich was amazing specially the coral garden. The hotel was great in every aspect except it didn't have very hot water, but for me was the temperature was perfect.

All I can say is that the manager come to the complete rescue when I and a friend were trying to locate a beautiful place to propose to our better halfs. We were initially pointed in his direction whilst staying at his sons hostel not far from his restaurant. He told us about the beautiful pass island and supplied a... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Discovery Resort. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, our cottage had great sunset views and the food was good. The cottages are clean, but don't expect anything fancy. The fanciness is in the island itself and in the fact that you have your own hammock to relax in on the veranda. They organize... More

Booked this resort for a honeymoon gateway with my wife. Arrived to the hotel by boat was mislead by booking.com that this was a hotel right on the island. I was a little upset by that, taking the boat to town was a little annoying. But now about the hotel, very quiet, great staff but the food and drinks were... More

The resort is located 5 min by boat from coron town. For 150P per person you can get airport transfert (30'). Rooms in the lodge are simple but relatively clean. Many activities are provided: Dimanglet island boat tour, Coron Island discovery, diving and more. Normally activities last all day long (9am to 5pm). There is a small beach where to... More

Through a mishap in booking through Orbits, I was unable to catch the boat to my original resort, I found this place just by chance! The pictures don't do it justice but most of all the staff really made you feel like you're in paradise! Very helpful and personable the rooms were NEW and clean, the food was good, the... More

I was travelling solo for 3 days and this place was perfect. The staff is friendly, they can organised everything for you. You can book island hopping tour for the next day once you arrived. They offer to rent per boat, which allows to discover the islands in a small group. This therefore ends up being a bit more expensive... More
