We have just come back from a truly amazing honeymoon. We stayed at El Rio y Mar for 5 nights, in a Cedar Cabana cottage, which is spacious, clean and have an amazing view both during sunrise and sunset. Air-con in the room is great, hot water shower works well. This resort is very well organised, from airport transfer to islands excursions to spa treatments, very friendly staff and professional. They understand how to make their guest feel relaxed during their stay at the resort and on excursions.
We opted for the full board option, meals are good, especially the seafood and their angus steak. When we first arrived, the resort was almost at its max capacity, the resort had put on shows during evening meals. Bar tender Emil's fire dance was the most impressive of all. He was friendly and he also remembered my favourite drink - Mango milkshake whenever I visited the Port Caltom's Reef Bar! Darren who was our guide for the Coron Island tour as well as our day trip to the sister resort Club Paradise, he is very tentative and friendly... he led us to find the Sea Turtles and the giant clam at Club Paradise. We have also went for a hike up to the submit of the hill, it has a great view of the resort and you are able to see Club Paradise from there.
I know alot of people prefer Club Paradise than El Rio y Mar. Personally, we prefer this resort. Yes, it's a smaller resort, and yes, it has not much of a beach. But the rooms/cottages are bigger than Club Paradise, because it's a smaller resort, it brings people closer among the guests and the staff, and its just a bonus that they have the best floating spa ever! If you want to go to the beach, you can always make a day trip to the Club Paradise with their scheduled ferry.
If you are looking for relaxing romantic getaway, this is the perfect resort for you.
