This place impressed us for the great people and service. Food was great too, love their freshly made bread. Dinner was always very good and served buffet style. Shout out to Jongco, for helping my daughter-in-law and my granddaughter, jumping in immediately when my granddaughter started crying. Some people may complain that the resort is somewhat dated, broken hinges, etc....

We had 4 night at Chindonan in January and it was a great stay! Very clean spacious rooms and beautiful clean water!! The restaurant was excellent by far the best food we had in our time in the Philippines. The only downside was we were in a room at the top of the hill so lots of steps to climb....

Well located for diving, this is a given! And the diving in Coron Bay is just amazing. The hotel is not nice and need a revamp. There is no beach and the exposure is north. The rooms are big but old and cold and the bathroom is not up to the price you pay. It is overall clean if you...

When booking the room you will be requested to pay half of the total booking. The boats that take you from Coron to the resort or diving or on excursions are in need of some TLC and a bit more comfort. The boats have no toilets and the chairs are uncomfortable with no padding. The resort has a small bar...

We stayed 3 nights and it was perfect for diving. Well located, reducing the transportation time to the wrecks; we dived with Joseph who was a really nice, reliable and knowledgeable dive guide. Food is good. Dinner is included in the accommodation and lunch is reasonably priced We used the free canoe to snorkel nearby -- there is a pretty...

Arrival: When I first arrived at Chindonan Dive Resort I was greeted by two lovely local girls when I got off the boat who escorted me to the eating area just a few meters up the jetty.

There is a place that could make u relax ,everything u want to do is diving .儘管有些不方便,例如:房間沒空調,只有電風扇,但我覺得電風扇就夠用了,洗澡沒熱水 而且水非常小,wifi的訊號也很弱,度假村也會定時停電,在這裡不用擔心太多事情,使用任何設施也都是被允許的,但必須自己為自己負責,沒人會看管你,這裏的食物份量也很夠,口味也不錯,另外所有消費會在退房當天做結清,可以付現也可刷卡,可以不用帶著這麼多現金在身上.

There's a lot of bad things you could say about this resort, but what people don't seem to appreciate is this is an isolated island and the resort has been built from scratch by the owners and they are constantly in the process of modernising it. Firstly I will say if you like luxury and variety, then this is not...

A place for wreck diving, no marine life. Wreck diving was good specially when visibility is good. Joseph, our diving instructor was really good and familiar with the area, thumbs up for him, The resort is very basic, no hot water and no water pressure, barely can shower and it was painful with the cold water. There was a Tokay...
