Definitely recommend this quiet and welcoming resort on a semi-mangrove sea shore! The staff is great, with key persons able to provide all necessary info for tours and activities as well as organize them very conveniently. Food and drinks at the resto-bar are good quality too and requests can be easily accommodated. Enjoying colorful sunsets with a fresh drink is... More

Great staff and very comfortable, clean cabanas overlooking the ocean. There isn't anything else to do on the little island other than to relax in a hammock or visit the resto but a quick boat ride to town or neighboring islands can be booked quite easily. I recommend bringing a phone as it's more convenient to send a quick text... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. It is about ten minutes boat ride from Coron. Our room was clean, secluded and just what we needed. Warning that the shower was cold. The food was delicious and there was a huge choice of drinks available. The resort is quite, peaceful and set on a hill so I... More

My partner and I have just left discovery island after staying for 6 nights there and for us it was perfect. Coron town itself is a bit of a dump but 10 minutes on a boat you are transported to a beautiful island with stunning views and very welcoming staff ... In fact they couldn't have done more!

We need to look at different aspects. This review is solely about the resort/ hotel / restaurant. For the dive operator--which is unprofessional and dangerous in our opinion-- please seek our review in "things to do in Coron" by searching Discovery Divers Coron. THe note given here excludes the dive operation. 1- The hotel : we stayed in the individual... More

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Coron Town, but still be close enough to go there whenever you want, this is the place to stay! I stayed in a nice and... More

Coron town is a dump, so the best option is to stay on one of the nearby islands for some peace and quiet. The location of the cottages is without a question fantastic. The view is splendid! Their landscaping is great as well with all sorts of lovely flowers. Their new cottages are particularly nice, so when you book, ask... More

We choose this place because we wanted to relax and be away from town. I am so glad we did. Coron, the town, is very loud and ugly and I met two guests who moved from town because they wanted peace and quiet. Simple is the word I would use to describe the accommodations. We stayed in the cottage with... More

Discovery Island is a great resort located just a ten minute boat ride from Coron town proper. The rooms offer excellent value for money. All the staff and management are friendly and being on an island gives the place a sense of community. The food in the restaurant is all excellent. If you need to go to town then a... More
