“Home Away From Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

From beginning to end, the staff of Asia Grand View welcomed us like we were family. Any request we had throughout our whole trip, everyone was eager and happy to help. We grew close to Roan, Shel and Jimmy and Maria. Roan helped us with the planning of our daily activities, she quickly saw what our wants were and made sure these wants were met with her strong initiative and passion. Everything we wanted and needed was quickly fulfilled, we were very impressed. Shel was our waitress during our stay. Always a smiling face and willing to adjust any order we had. My sister was sick during our stay and asked for ginger tea probably 5 times per day/night, the kitchen even ran out of ginger at one point but quickly went to the market to buy more. We were very impressed with the genuine service and helpfulness. Jimmy and Maria performed every lunch and dinner, striking up conversation and encouraging our family to sing along with them every time. They made our New Years very special :)

The rooms are very spacious and the beds are king-size. I was in a room with my two sisters, with an extra bed laid out on the floor. The bathroom is also spacious and clean, with a wonderful shower.

The food was the only disappointment we had while on our trip there. They are very good at certain dishes, but we were not impressed with the breakfast buffet. Although even after having a wonderful dinner in Corto Del Mar, we still would choose to stay in Asia Grand View every single time. As there are many other choices for restaurants I would recommend staying in Asia Grand View and going out for dinner occasionally. We spent every lunch on our banka (boat) with freshly made food, bought from the market for us every morning.

All in all, this holiday was a dream and it would not have been made possible without all the great people of Asia Grand View! Thank you!

Living here in Coron, we sometimes come to this place to have dinner.
We always try to order something different and so far everything is so delicious!
We also decided to have Xmass dinner here some friends. They arranged candlelight dinner on the rooftop, liveband music, a Xmass tree and gifts for the the guests as a surprise. the service from the staff is really good.
Thanks Asia Grand view!!

Room Tip: Have a cocktail on there nice rooftop during sunset! Amazing

My son's Ipad was stolen the first day in a locked room. After heeding the hotel's management and owner's help, they sent us a letter insinuating my son didn't have an IPad instead of truly investigating. The Manager here is two faced, she will pretend they are doing everything in their power to help you find your stolen item. The Owner is worse, she doesn't even know us, she insinuated in her letter to us that they didn't feel my son had an Ipad. What kind of hotel management does this? BAN this hotel! Consider this a warning! There is a thief still not caught but they will blame their own hotel guests instead!

asiagrandview, General Manager at Asia Grand View Hotel, responded to this review, February 18, 2014
Dear Guests,

We deeply apologize for all the inconvenience. The IPAD was already found and surrendered to the owner thru the kindness of Mr. Carlo Iyog and Mr. Bryan Parsons our guests who checked out last January 20, 2014. Accordingly, the IPAD magnetic cover had attached in the Safety deposit box, almost invisible to see, and Mr. Parsons had just double checked the safe by use of a flashlight and found the sparkle of an apple logo. Mr. Parsons and Mr. Iyog had graciously sent the item thru Fedex delivery and directly to the owner considering the time, customs, payment as they are also from the same country for which the guests had already acknowledged to have received. We are deeply indebted to Mr. Parsons and Mr. Iyog for their kindness and generosity, specially, in this kind of situation that it proves too that we have not stolen an item.

Thank you for your kind understanding.

We remain, very truly yours,


Carmela Geisert

We stayed in a deluxe room, which is designed to look like a cottage in itself. The room was very spacious and very clean, and it had a nice slightly rustic feel to it. The bed comfortable enough, but I found a few ants on it.

The resort itself was great. The abundance of flora AND fauna in the resort, as well as the use of wood in decor were a great touch that really made you feel that you are in the beautiful island of Busuanga. The rooftop had an amazing view as well - perfect for taking photos of the sunset.

The service was also superb. They were very attentive and courteous, and they would often anticipate your needs. The food was great as well and not very expensive by resort standards.

Overall, I loved the place and would definitely stay here again next time I'm in Coron.

At first you will think its expensive but the manager is very kind and easy to talk to since we're a walk-in without agents etc. So i think it made it at a very reasonable cost but its not all, they are all really accomodative and flexible to your request as long as it is still possible and that made my stay very convenient and still relaxing, total is worth it and the view is really grand as you eat your breakfast/meal. Hope be able to come back again :)

We stayed for 2 nights on March 2013 at Asia Grand View and we enjoyed it so much, although its expensive but worth the rate. We paid P 5,000. / night with buffet breakfast.
1. Very clean - even the garden is maintained
2. Good food - there's complete selection in the buffet table during breakfast.The food is a
little bit expensive but good.
3. Friendly Staff - they even let me borrow knife to cut fruits we brought in our island hopping
4. Service is good - we always have a hot pot of tea and hot water for coffee in the room,
and assist us in getting our banca for the island tour. Upon our request, our room is
upgraded.
5. Nice view - their restaurant is facing the sea, so you will have a very nice sunrise and sunset
while dining.
6. Quiet location - although its a little bit not closer to the port, even the tricycle can reach the
hotel. Its just 10 mins away from the port,
7. Big Rooms - although lighting is dim, it has clean and nice bathroom
8. Nice pool

Here is your choice when you plan your island hopping ( a must ).

1. If you are three or four, better hire your own banca, they will assist you to get one but make sure its not old, this way you can manage your own island hopping. 2 days island hopping is reccommended so you would see all the islands, every island is nice and its abounding in fishes and corals. You can take out food from the hotel for your snacks and lunch. Bring your own spoon and fork, tissue, water, fruits, and lots of water in the banca and one bag to collect all your garbage.

2. Join a group - ask the hotel for assistance. Food is inclusive but limited. They will grill the fish or meat in the banca, prepare fresh salad, while you are busy swimming. Bring your own spoon and fork if you want, otherwise you will use your hands to eat.

All Islands are very nice, don't miss the Siete Picados, fishes here abounds even in the surface of the water.

Room Tip: just request for upgrade if you want. all their rooms are situated nicely. premier rooms are closer...

We stayed at Asia Grand View Hotel for 5 nights and 6 days. The place was so relaxing. The amenities were so great. We enjoyed singing in the videoke, we had fun playing billiards, and most of all we enjoyed the used of the pool as we swam there almost every nights.The staffs were very friendly and accommodating, They will assist you wholeheartedly. Great breakfast buffet, and they also offer a wide variety of foods on their menu. The rooms were so clean, huge and very comfortable. The hotel also provides a free WLAN internet access and the signal was great. We would definitely recommend this Hotels for it's quiet location. AGVH is also a good location to explore Coron Islands.Two thumbs up for AGVH we highly recommend this place! We would love to go back and stay at Asia Grand View Hotel.
