“Beautiful place, food a let down.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2015

We had dinner here at p300-450 per person including drinks three times during our stay at the hotel and tried something different every time, unfortunately all of our meals were a disappointment. The pizza was okay but only if you enjoy a lot of cheese. We tried cocktails once but may have ordered on the wrong day as the regular bartender wasn't working.

The coffee and fresh juices/shakes are very good.

The place is a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the main town, away from traffic fumes. It is beautifully built and decorated and is right by the pool which is quite nice until people in nothing but swimwear start walking past your table. A dress code should definitely be implemented in the restaurant, bar and reception area.

Staff is friendly and helpful but, as is common in the Philippines, lacking in service training.

Great promise but there are better places to eat.

“Oasis in the heart of Coron”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2015

This hotel was lovely. It is new, clean and beautiful. Staff are super friendly, well trained and professional. The pool is gorgeous with a small pool for toddlers. Restaurant has amazing food, reasonably priced. Breakfast that we got included in our room rate was delicious.

The location is also good as it's in town, down a quiet street. You can walk to any shop or restaurant and ruk tuk rides are also available from the front door.

The rooms are clean, modern and spacious. TV has some great channels on it and rooms are cleaned each morning with fresh bedding, towels and free water, tea, coffee etc.

They also do the best pizzas I have tasted in a while. Cocktails are good as well as the smoothies and shakes.

Overall, this place has a really nice vibe about it, and it was great staying here. I would recommend it to anyone!

“Dry chicken, amazing cocktails and decent pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2015

We came here on our second night in Coron because of the decent trip advisor reviews. We started with a couple cocktails which were amazing but definitely not that strong. We ordered Pizza and Roast Chicken. The chicken was dry and the vegetables were undercooked and the chips were mushy. The pizza base was amazing but it was drenched in cheese! Overall we spent $1600php and it wasn't worth it for the atmosphere and food. Much preferred the food at our own resort (la Natura).

“One of the best in Coron town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2015

It was one of the best restaurant in Coron town. It's not sort of cheap, but compare price and quality, it's really good.
