Coron was our first stop on a four week tour of the Philippines. We stayed four nights at the Discovery Island resort. You take a boat to the island, so it was very private and quiet compared to Coron town. The staff was great. Enjoyed the breakfast and coffee that were reasonably priced. There was one restaurant on the island,...

Sorry I have to write this but if I ask a dive master to stop doing dangerous things on a dive (I am an instructor so not just some nambie pambie n00b) and then they go ahead and ignore me I have to tell people to watch out. Firstly sharing air at 20 meters and continuing the dive because someone...

Discovery Island Resort is paradise on earth. It is simply beautiful. We stayed for 4 night. The rooms were clean, spacious and quiet. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly.

Lovely tiny island, a micro-paradise where you also can find people who enjoy the simple perfect thing in life such the fresh air, beautiful clouds and even the rain on your face. The staff is very kind and the food is great. Very convenient for diving the wrecks, thermo-climes lakes, reefs and coral garden around. We originally wanted to spend...

Spent nearly a week there and took two cottages with no AC. For the time of the year this was totally fine and not too hot. The resort is really just next to Coron and can easily be reached via a 10-15 min boat ride. Also it is easy during your stay to go back and forth if you need...

The way to get to the island is by boat only from Coron town. We stayed here for 4 nights. The staff are friendly and the food at the restaurant is resonably priced. Boat cost to town is 100 pesos pp and the children is free. The water coming out from the tap came from a deep well which had...

Leaving the madness of Manila, where traffic moves at a snail's pace, we flew to Busuanga airport on the island of Coron. The town of Coron itself is not very attractive, as there are lots of little hucksters shops and crazy tricycle taxis zooming up and down the street, creating a terrible racket, rubbish lying around attracting flies and pedlars...

Overall a good resort and value for money. Me and my family stayed here for four days. Resort is located on an Island 7 mins away from coron city. It is very quiet because of its distance away from town. The hotel staff is a big plus and were very helpful in giving info about town and boat tours. Overall...
