“Good Value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We booked our stay to Coron last minute and booked a room at Jendi as it was the only nonluxury place available. After reading the reviews we changed our reservation from standard to cottage. We were 4 in our group, but still elected to get 2 cottages. First be aware that it is a steep walk down to the hotel form the main road, not a problem for us ,but if you have knee problems it wouldn't be enjoyable. We arrived late and the walk to our cottage was pitch black. The cottage itself was nice, but a bit old. Definitely a great value for what we paid (around $60). The bedrooms have AC. There was hot water in the shower (after we asked the staff to turn on water to our cottage).
The hotel is about a 10 min trike ride from town. It was nice not to have the motorbike and harbour noise, but we did have lots of dogs barking outside our cottage and boys playing early (pre6am) in the morning.
There is no restaurant, but they serve a decent basic breakfast of eggs, meat (bacon or ham) and toast. The coffee is instant (guess you can't have it all).
The staff wasn't very friendly and didn't seem to speak much English. We had a Filipino in our group and Louise wouldn't speak English, she would only speak Tagalo even when we asked questions in English.

Room Tip: Get a cottage instead of a standard.

Located a little outside of town centre (5 minutes on tricycle, 15-20 minutes walk) so you won't be bothered by noise of motorbikes. It's located on the pier so you can have breakfast or just sit there looking at the water and mountains.
Rooms are clean and cozy. 24h electricity, shower with hot and cold water, wi-fi.
Staff are very friendly and helpful - they helped me to arrange all of my tour trips, called tricycle to drive me to town, arranged van to take me to airport.
Overall great experience and if I come to Coron again I would definitely stay there again.

I stayed here with another girl friend of mine. A nice place for nature lovers with all the basics air con, water heater, multiple outlets for charging phones and cameras, and wifi plus a nice view of the sea, islands and boats. Our room was cleaned with a fresh set of towels each day. The staff were warm, polite and very accommodating to our requests, and dear Mrs. Watson was a friend and like second mom to us. They really took good care of us. We didn't see any menu but were offered that they'd cook us dinner of our preferred choice. Can't forget the big crab with alige cooked in coconut milk which made me double my usual intake of rice. It's also very ideal for families who are nature lovers. Am really planning of going back. A really great B&B place where you get value for your money.

Latter part of January 2012, I've been in Coron Palawan to experience the wonder of nature. Our family stay in Jendi Seafront Hotel. In that hotel we've met the accommodating staffs, who always attend to our concerns.

We decided to stay there for two reasons; to relax our mind and spirit, and to enjoy the tour to various tourist destination in Coron Island.

Generally the hotel and accommodation is budget friendly and we don't find any problem on the room, its clean,and there is available water supply as well as the tour is properly guided and planned, my special thanks to our tour guide who capture our smile in a most beautiful scenic views of Coron Island. Also the place is so calm which transcends into tranquility wherein anybody of us want to experience especially to person's like me who is always busy and stressful environment of metropolis.

We feel the place like home!

Thank you!
From the heart....

I opted for a "simple" place outside Coron and thought Jendi Seafront was what I indeed looked for. My room which had the view of the sea was comfortable. It had airconditioning but I opted and took advantage of the clean and cool air. The claim to fame of the place is the spectacular view from the dining area of the mountains and sea. Walking to the main town is about 20 minutes. I will definitely return to Coron and Jendi Seafront.
