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

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
