Wow how devious a cosy guesthouse and nice looking man can be! The place looks not that bad when you got in and it gifs a homy feeling but sadly that is fake. I made a reservation in advance and I asked for a confermation one week upon arrival. In the emails we talked about a private room with inside... More

The place itself was very comfortable and even though there were constant black outs in Coron, we were lucky to get the Patrick room, which was on the top floor at the farthest part of the balcony (not the dining area) so it our room was nice airy. Jun, the owner was very accommodating and he is the best host... More

When we arrived at Ralph's Pension house we were told that they were "fully booked" for these dates, we attempted to explain that the owner had confirmed our booking, after we showed her his confirmation she said that they could give us the room he described for 1300 php per night but for 2 nights only and that we would...

I stayed here for 5 days over Chinese New Year 2013 and it was easily the worst place I have ever been! I was vary disappointed because the other posters seemed positive and the pictures of the hotel looked ok. But what the hotel failed to tell me (and the info is NOT on their website) is that they have... More

During our stay in Ralph's, I promised myself that I would give a fair and positive feedback to this lodge to vindicate recent negative comments. And no, I am not related to them. Our stay there was surprisingly pleasant for travelers who are working on a budget. If you are a foreigner or a local who is used to big... More

My friends and I went here last july. The owner, Kuya jun, was very accomodating, welcoming us with his warm greetings and introducing us to rich history of Coron. All food and itineraries were set to us. Our room was more than big enough for our group and provided us the privacy that we want. It just took time for... More

We stayed here more than a year ago. It was still number 1 (or 2) and i'm glad to see that the ranking for this place is going down. I feel I was deceived into thinking that this was a good place to stay. It wasn't terrible but it definitely wasnt great either. I cant imagine why anyone would rate... More

We stayed there for 1 night. The rooms did not fit more than a bed. The bathrooms were moldy and in a terrible condition. In the toilet there were traces of the prerenters and the smell made you feel like you were sleeping in a rotten dungeon. And this for a rate of 1000phil pesos. Additional the owner supllied us...
