coron is a relatively new tourist destination, there is not much high end places to stay in town except for inns and pension houses. i was also aware of the water shortage in the area so i guess my expectations was not too high when i got in. a year ago when i was here, it was a struggle for mobile phone signal and wifi access is close to none.
i was there for business and had a tight timeframe. i requested my guide to make sure i am at a place where there is internet and i will not be bothered by anything close to stressful as i am here on a deadline.
coming up the narrow staircase was like opening a present.. it unfolded into a homey pension that even has a rooftop where you can eat, watch the stars.. see the moon.. quite lovely. we were also lucky to get a room in this floor which had three beds but we were charged only for two.
the owner also made it his priority that we are comfortable and even helped me with my work requirements in the island without much fuss.
they do not have a restaurant but you can request ahead of time if you want to eat there and be ready for a huge meal, freshly cooked and cheap too.
the pension is also close to everything especially the banks and the port where you go for island hopping.
but for me, the real treat is the wifi.. and those convenient nooks and benches where you can relax and work at the same time.
they also allow guests to bring in drinks and food from outside if you just want to hang at the rooftop and enjoy the view.
