I loved the location and the helpful staff, rooms not too big but the a/c was cold, the bed comfortable, hot and cold shower and steps away from the town circle and a 10 peso trike ride to most places if you don't feel like walking. My only problem was spotty internet signal which cuts in and out but that... More

The hotel is in the town proper so it's walking distance to a lot of the restaurants and other things to do in Coron. We stayed in the roofdeck queen, I don't suggest this room for big people since the room is pretty small, only upside is tha this room has a fridge. Their plated breakfast is pretty good but...

Stayed in June 2015 (can't input this date in the drop down) and was really charmed by this place. Centrally located. Stayed along the road and noise was tolerable. Love the quaint courtyard and the overall design of the inn. Replies to queries are prompt and helpful. Will go back to this place if I ever have the chance to... More

Clean comfortable room came with a bathroom one of those shower toilets combos, cable tv and cold aircon. Only cons I could find was the breakfast wasn't the greatest, it's all ready on the table wrapped in cling film for when you arrive so was never piping hot. Also the staff wasn't the most helpful regarding maps around town and... More

The location is great.. the stores, eatery, bakery and everything is just walking distance. The beds are comfortable and clean. We love the rooftop where we often do zumba in the morning (using our gadgets), and we can hang our wet clothes. There's unlimited coffe in the morning. We often have leftovers from our lunch, the staffs reheat it for... More

The lodge is located within the town proper of Coron, perhaps book the courtyard area for less noise but then even though my room was in front of the street, I was too exhausted from the tours that the noise didn't matter at all. Breakfast was great! Staff were friendly and very accommodating. There's a bit of smell on the... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Took the courtyard room. Very simple setup and very quiet. Queen bed and shower. Aircon, and ceiling fan. Closet was a surprise... It is ONLY 8 inch DEEP! What in the world can fit in there... i don't know. Bathroom has sewer smell. We finally worked out why... They have a very powerful exhaust fan, and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights - We had an extension from our originally planned 5 day stay in Coron as we were captivated by the island's charm and beauty. The rate was very affordable (P 1800 per night). They have a lovely and beautiful courtyard situated in the middle of the buildings/rooms. The bed was very comfortable - my... More

I don't recommend that hotel, I advice all the traveler from CORON to go to the dive center 'Corto diver' and ask them to sleep there (really perfect place and cheap). The Balaibinda was not clean, the breakfast was not good neither. The good point is the location, that's it !...
