My friends and I stayed at Balaibinda Lodge, Coron due to its value for money package and location. We are a group of 5 pax, booked through Agoda and stayed at Superior Family Room for 6 (total cost for 3 nights is Php 11,400). The room is located at the 2nd floor, far back in the lodge. This is the... More

I plus 2 of my friends stayed at Balaibinda Lodge June 28-30, 2014. Aside from the good and very reasonable accommodation I value the kind of service and warmth hospitality extended by all the (smiling) staff. I feel "at home" and relaxed. Its my 3rd time in Coron and love to come back. I invite my other friends to see... More

Went to Coron from May29-June 1, 2014 and stayed at the Balaibinda Lodge. We booked the Roofdeck Queen Room. Some comments below: 1) The room was clean and the size was just right. It had a queen bed, a desk, closet, a mini ref, and coffee service. 2) Bathroom was clean although on the small side with no divider so... More

Excellent staff, excellent location. Coron is a small town and being in the center is so convenient. A short walk from the market, boat warf and eating places. Breakfast is basic but that's all you need. Power situation as of May 2014 is bad for the entire town but the staff tries their best to keep you ok. Being in... More

This hotel gives you a basic clean room and a clean bathroom. A basic breakfast is included. What is important to mention is that the generator is only for lights and electric fan. Blackouts happen often in Coron as we found out. On our first night there were 3, lasting for 45 minutes to 1 hour, all in the span... More

Calamian tours was able to transfer us here from Mt Tapyas hotel. Although it was Php 800 more per night, it was well worth it. The staff welcomed us with a cold glass of iced tea. The room was nice and clean. Bed and pillows were not cheap looking. Bathroom was clean and simple with hot shower. Breakfast is excellent!... More

This hotel is in the center of activities and close to everything. You can walk to the public market, shops, tour agencies and the pier in a few minutes. Very convenient location.

It's my 3rd time in Coron and this is by far the best budget hotel I've stayed in. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with enough space to move around. There's a huge space (bar area) on the rooftop with several tables and chairs where you can hangout. We bought some beers from the small bar across the street and... More

Basically we stayed there due to the fact that our last minute reservations made with Jasmine's place (down the road) was double booked on the last day of our vacation. I would recommend staying there (Jasmine's Place) first if you have the option of the two. The room was total basic, small. With good air conditioner. Market is literally across... More

Location: Right in the center of town and very accessible (literally) to the port, the market, the restaurants, the souvenir shops, the plaza, the tourism office and Mt. Tapyas among others. It is budget accommodation not just in terms of price, but also in terms of transportation as you can just walk instead of paying for tricycle. The downside is... More
