Location wise, its the nearest hotel to the pier for island hopping. But it is several blocks away from the streets where there are local restaurants. The local restaurants, however, only offer basic food. The restaurant attached to this hotel has more choices, but a lot are not available. Big rooms, with their basic room a junior suite. Because its... More

We booked the Presidential Suite here. Our first room was ok but then I inspected the room and it was less than what I paid for. The stove didn't work, the seaside view faced an old market and the hot tub is a large tub. I asked to change rooms and they did. We looked at the third floor and... More

A mixed picture! The hotel had made sure the guy at the airport knew we were coming, and they guided us to the van into town. Remember though you have to pay 150php per person for this. Hotel is a massive square lump down on the reclaimed area near the harbour. Not exactly architecturally stunning! We got a room with... More

Having lived in the Philippines in the 80's, I discovered Palawan already quite some time ago... How could I have missed though the incredible Coron Island experience and I am delighted I got to experience it from the Coron Gateway Hotel & Suites... It's a rustic experience with the authenticity you can appreciate only after having seen the pristine environments... More

The hotel is in a strategic location. Very near the market and port so if you are heading for an island hopping trip, you don't have to worry so much about waking up so early to buy your food from the market and catch your boat ride. The hotel needs to be more maintained, especially salt water from the sea... More

A very nice hotel by local standards. Excellent location right next to the sea. A huge room with a big balcony with a view over the sea towards Coron island. A bath tub large enough for two people with the same view. A/C could have been a bit more powerful but it was all right once you kept it running... More

Positives: spacious rooms, great food, great staff, great customer service. When we had a problem with the Travel Agent on our return flight to Manila, the hotel staffs accompany us to the airport and the manager made sure that everybody was booked in a return flight before they left the airport. Improvement Areas: hope they can find a way to... More

The performances start at 7PM up to 11PM and may sometimes extend up to 12mindnight whenever there are still a lot of guests. You can also sing your heart out and even have... More
