We stayed here for a couple of nights and we found the staff to be excellent. Very kind, they always called us by name and enjoyed helping us with any requests we had, including a surprise birthday breakfast request with fresh cut flowers and delicious crepes.
Unfortunately the shuttle service is not efficient and we had to wait several times for long periods of time to get to and from town. They also didn't mention that in order to catch the ferry we had to go the restaurant "la sirenetta" and text when we wanted a ride. The first night going to the hotel we weren't aware of this, we tried to contact the hotel the evening before (via email) to arrange the shuttle but with no response.
The hotel had a nice relaxing atmosphere but unfortunately the lack of air conditioning and the uncomfortably high pillows it made for a difficult sleep.
Overall, its nice to get out of Coron town but the hotel is a little overpriced for the value (they charge for everything and they must cover the cost of transporting things to the island) and be prepared to wait for the transport.
