This place is somewhere you stay when you have days full of activates as the location is secluded (it’s a simple boat ride to Coron town, but non the less, a journey every time and the activities are limited at the resort) However if your there to dive and island hope for a couple of days, this is a great...

When I found out that a friend of mine and his family are coming to visit Coron for the first time, I've wanted to give them an experience they won't forget - starting from the accommodation they will be staying at til the boat tours. It has been quite a test to find a nice accommodation in such a short... More

Coron doesn't really give a great first impression. The town is dirty, congested, and not a whole lot to offer. When they say you should stay at one of the resorts on one of the near by islands...trust them, and me...its a good choice. We were picked up by the resorts boat and delivered to our new spot for 4... More

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.

I'm so happy I discovered this quiet and relaxed resort on a litte tiny island (just 5 minutes boat ride) from Coron Town.

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
