Stayed at the resort for Christmas week. Highly recommended for families. We were in the family bungalow which had two bedrooms and a shared bathroom. Excellent service. Our flight was delayed - as was all flights getting out of Manila because of the holiday - but our shuttle was waiting for us at the airport as was our boat for... More

Not the easiest name to pronounce but a great spot for island hopping as it sits on Uson island, directly opposite Coron bay. The native huts are well appointed with good views of the beach and the house reef has some of the best coral we saw during our stay, right on your doorstep. The only downside was the food,... More

We visited the place a few months after it was ravaged by Yolanda last year, we were originally going to spend the days after Christmas and go back to Manila for New Year but due to a flight cancellation by Skyjet (we were informed 2 days before the flight!), we had to move our trip to around New Year because...

Our experience of Coron's intriguing and untouched beauty was complemented by the serenity and peace provided by the resort with its raw and unpretentious simplicity and pleasant staff. A few points to consider: 1. No electricity? No problem. The potential problem of no electricity during the day was buffered by the cool breeze of which can be freely availed in... More

We stayed in this resort for two nights as part of our 3 nights trip to Coron. The boatmen picked us up from our hotel in town and brought us to the boat that is waiting at the jetty. The resort is just a 15 mins boat ride away. The resort is located on a beach front of Uson island.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. We took their package that included island hopping and meals. The food is very good and they are open to requests. We were served with fish e.g. lapu lapu, crabs , chicken, ribs and etc. The choice for breakfast is limited. Service is excellent and friendly. The major downside is there is no ac... More

The last time I was in Coron is around 2-3 years and I stayed in this same hotel. The facilities have improved, now they have hammocks fronting the beach and new lodging. Just relaxing on the hammocks is soooo good. I rated this resort excellent mainly because of two things : food is superb. If you're a food aficionado you... More

Coron town on Busuanga Island is not a very appealing or secure place to stay so being located on Uson Island away from Coron town is one of the best aspects of Balinsasayaw Resort. The collection from the airport and transfer to the Balinsasayaw banka at the port was very efficient and it was nice to receive a cold welcome... More

My boyfriend and I booked a 3D/2N package tour with the Balinsasayaw Resort and had a really awesome time. The resort provided with the package a round-trip airport transfer which is definitely needed as the airport is 45 mins away from Coron Town. Once you arrive to Coron Town you take a 20 minute boat ride to the island where... More

the stay in the island was superb.the manager/owner miss rose is nice and accommodating. staff are friendly like princess, daren, servers and boatmen. quiet, serene and fresh air. very relaxing. the bad side (for me) is limited choices of food/menu. no brewed coffee. no half and half cream. will recommend.will comeback.
