We've stayed at Gran Vista twice already (May 2009 and June 2012) and had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Ms. Gigi. She's very warm and accommodating to guests. Her staff members are also very nice. Gran Vista is about 5-10 mins from town and this is the perfect place if you want to be secluded. The rooms are simple... More

We stayed in this resort on Feb, 2011 (super late review) but still cant forget the simple way of life there. When we arrived from exhausting trip, we checked in to our room, explored the place... we fell asleep on the cottage. We didnt have a single mosquito bite! The owner arranged almost everything for us... The trips and the... More

My husband and I stayed here for four nights at the beginning of February. The owner and the couple that worked at the resort were all so kind and helpful. They also keep the grounds in pristine condition. It is so relaxing and quiet out there! As others have mentioned, it's about a 7-8 minute drive on a trike and... More

Booked 2 rooms for 5 pax. One is a family room where we can all fit in but we wanted to maximize the space so we opted to get another double room instead. The place is very welcoming as the staff greets you and gives you a tour around the vicinity once you arrive at the location. The rooms are... More

I have been in Coron several times and stayed in different resort but our experience at Grand Vista and Castaway was unremarkable. This place is a great retreat from the city noise and pollution, in fact the cooler shades of the trees makes the afternoon relaxing and the breeze alleviate my inner soul and makes me one in nature.

We stayed at the Gran Vista Inn which (as the other reviewer had mentioned) is about a few minutes drive to town. I love th location since it's not so close to Coron Town and you still have that feeling of seclusion. The trike ride is not bad at all. Customer Service experience here is pretty much spot on. We...

This resort is perfect for those wanting to stay somewhere comfortable yet affordable. The resort of Gran Vista is a 7-8 minute ride out of the town. It's got eco-tourism written all over it and is ideal for being close to CT but not in it. It's clean and well run and better value for money than many other resorts.... More
