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...

We loved it. Didnt have any nasty encounters with rats or roaches as the people mentioned previously. We liked the charm of the wooden hut standing over the water, early morning view over the bay, the gentle rocking as the breeze flies freely throught he hut ( no glazing). There are many hidden corners with chaise-longues, hammocks, chairs. I felt... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and we were lucky we have not encountered any rats during our stay like what the rest had mentioned. The staff were friendly. Wifi speed was acceptable for whatsapp or general surfing of thr internet but struggled with the shower and water stopped running half way through because too many people were using at the... More

Its now 3:20am and there's three of us are sitting outside a room we paid over 1000 pesos for after taking advice from Lonely Planet because our room is infested with roaches -- take a shower and a swarm of roaches come creeping out the bathroom floor; pick up your backpack and yet another swarm of cockroaches scurry off from...

Stayed here for a less noisy less hot option after a bad night at Marley's, we were one of 2 occupied rooms, great wifi, but 2 rats had a brawl in our room in the middle of the night waking us all up with their loud squeals, one ran across my roommate's leg when she was sleeping on a TOP... More

We were recommended Crystal Lodge by some friends that had stayed in the season of 2013. Unfortunately since this, the guys a Crystal Lodge were hit hard by the typhoon. They've lost some of their main cottages as a result leaving the place fairly stacked up with piles of remains they've managed to save. Don't get me wrong it's been... More

If you want a taste of Filipino living this is a great place. The rooms are large - much larger than the average Filipino house - and fitted out in native style. The hammocks are great places to relax. Krystal, the owner, is really friendly. You are paying for simple accommodation and that is what you get. The bathrooms, in... More
