10 minutes after arrival, a staff member came to the room asking for immediate payment. I asked if she would wait until my friend was out of the shower and she said she would wait in the room with me. I asked her not to. I then had a shower ten minutes later and again she came in and demanded... More

Definitely NOT for the high-maintenance traveler. No aircon and all that jazz. Other than the obvious lack of amenities, for the price it is the best stay. If you can do without all that stuff, then you will love it here. This place had the best atmosphere of any hotel or resort or hostel or motel or lodge or whatever... More

Quiet, cheap, and great. Krystal made us family style dinner a few times, we just went to get the food and beer, and voila, 8-12 strangers are having a family meal and it is fantastic. Only a few bucks per person to feed and drink us all, and she is a great cook. Keep your receipts though bc she can... More

The place was nice and peaceful. Still recovering from Typhoon Haiyan. A stonesthrow away from the busy tricycle traffic and you have the seas as your view and under your room as well. The communal room have even better views. Speaking to Krystal and she tells me of their plan to rebuild the cottages that were destroyed to plant mangrove... More

I've given crystal lodge a five for character and charm. We felt very at home there. Although, it is a little dated here and there, but our Host Wang was incredible by helping us to get around. She took care of all our needs. We arrived drown in sea water as our boat trip from El Nido wasn't the most... More

Stayed for a couple of nights on my Coron visit after a couple of days of diving. The property was damaged by Typhoon, but managed to rebuild. The location is great because its in the center town where you walk everywhere very touristic. It is also surrounded by local restaurants. Wifi is ok although didn't use much. Our stay came... More

If you're really up for an "adventure" (Survivor Reality TV series style) maybe you can consider staying here in Krystal Lodge. I really want to say something beautiful about this place but I really have to be honest on what I have experienced here. I saw a review on a travel blog website owned by a Filipino blogger and she... More

Crystal Lodge has for sure the most beautiful view in Coron downtown. We realy loved staying here, Crystal is a charming and welcoming host. On new year's eve, she even prepared an incredible amount of delicious food for all the guests. We did not saw any rats and our double rooms were very nice. No hot water but it's something... More

Krystal Lodge is a nice place to stay. I stayed here for two nights and even though I was the only one, I felt welcome here. The lodge I had was basic but good and with a nice view! You don't see the owner that much. She's often away from the place, but if you're an easy going person that... More

The place is seriously overpriced. They give you a room worth P250 for P800, the staff is very unhelpful even by Filipino standards. During the stay, I saw one staff sleep with a guest and another staff have a domestic violence match with her boyfriend. And, they have no drinks or breakfast. Only good thing is the wifi but it...
