It's paradise for older folks who want a white, quiet beach without the noise of people partying. Plus you get a glimpse of nature with some wildlife - bats above you, birds of sorts, harmless reptiles, pawikans (but didn't get to see them). We don't dive but they do have that. The food and variety offered were good enough. Some were excellent but forget the breakfast. It's not what you'd expect for this type of resort. Hardly. We had a beach villa which gave us direct access to the beautiful beach and amazing views. But we had major hiccups. Like Celagui's review, our room was not ready by 3 pm. And the receptionist sadly showed what others have said about Coron hospitality - still reeks of colonial mentality. I was given the standard greeting without looking at me as she seemed busy on her computer. I was matter of factly told I have to wait till 3pm. We arrived before noon and had lunch first where the resort manager dropped by to welcome us. Nice touch which was when I requested for check-in after we finish lunch. He said he'll look into it. I guess he didn't take it seriously. While waiting, foreign guests would approach the same reception I did and the lady would jump to her feet with a huge smile as if greeting Brad Pitt. And she would immediately show them their luggage. I didn't look for that treatment, we just wanted our room. Then 3pm came and since I was not called out from where we were sitting, I approached again and was told to wait another 15 minutes. And their excuse? Too many guests. Why accept guests and take their money but use it as a reason for poor service ? We decided to just walk to the beach villa and wait by the veranda to hopefully pressure them to finish the room faster. My wife suggested letting go so we can enjoy our long-awaited vacation. So the next day we tried the beach but the wind was picking up and waves were higher and stronger for us so we headed for the pool which was mostly deep so for my wife who doesn't swim, she just enjoyed it by the shallowest area at the far end of the pool where there were steps. It was all good until 2 PADI instructors came in thru the same steps where my wife was along with 2 diving students. They wanted a photo and asked as to move away from the shot which was fine. Until they said they were going to actually stay where they were for the lesson. Another PADI lady actually insulted my wife by telling her to wear a life jacket or go to the kiddie pool. You cannot be ruder than that. I gave that lady a tongue lashing but we left quietly. The in the afternoon, the power went out. We got no advice from anyone so for the next 2 hours, every resort staff who passed by our villa I asked. Perhaps 5 of them said the same then "babalik na yan sir". Power will be restored soon. Then it was getting dark already when the head of their housekeeping dropped by to give us an afternoon treat. When asked the same question, she said "let me look at the circuit breaker". So I followed her to the back of the villa but since it was getting dark, we couldn't see clearly. She just said she will advise engineering. But I couldn't wait anymore in the dark so I took my flashlight and check the circuit breakers. 1 was off so I turned it on. Power was back. Aircon was back. And all it told me was that it's not only reception and those rude PADI people that did not care, engineering also did not care because all they had to do was send someone to check and turn on the tripped switches of the villas. Fortunately, this place has one fine resort manager who managed to save the rest of our stay. We told him about these incidents and he promised there will be no more. So other than those incidents, the rest of our stay was actually nice. We had dinner under the stars, the PADI people came again but stayed clear of us in the pool, power still went out but came back soon after. So I guess this place could be nice if you don't let the rotten apples ruin your stay.

Club Paradise is a Beautiful Island… with rich dive and snorkling spots, it’s a haven for turtles, birds, monitor Lizards, and bats. The beach and scenery is just fantastic. 

Aside from that, everything is just short of what you’d expect from a Discovery Hotel/Resort. Arranging the trip was challenging - reservations Department would take days (once, it took over a week) to respond to our emails. Details were incomplete or incorrect which led to a lot of frustrating back and forths. Day before our flight, the actual resort had to be reminded of our arrival as it was apparently not showing in their systems. 
First, the Front Desk was just weird. They weren’t as lively or welcoming as you’d normally expect. Reception and Front Desk people are the first contact of the guests and should give the guests a positive first impression. My wife told me that she was NEVER greeted by the front desk whenever she was there. No one would attend to her until she would initiate the conversation. They would also act as if our requests were a nuisance. 
F&B and Restaurant Personnel were warmer and more attentive to their guests. Some though, seemed to lack training as they’ve missed a couple of my orders… I even had to ask “aren’t you going to write this down?”… only to be told that he “got my order in his head” but failed to complete my order. 
The activities personnel were alright, but the Equipment like the Life Vests and Snorkel Gear looked and felt old and worn out. We had a great time snorkeling and doing island escapade. 
House Keeping was good but not solid as they didn’t really clean up the whole room well. There was a corner in our room wherein there was some wood chips when we came in… on our fifth day, it was still there. Maybe House Keeping needed more training too. 

The first room we checked into (Sunset Villa) was old but also the most expensive, I think. The TV was not a Smart TV, the floor was creaking with every step. The second room we checked into was the Ocean View room (we made the grave mistake of extending our booking prior to the actual trip) It was newer and had a more modern feel but the bathroom smelled stuffy when I first went inside. 

About breakfast - the choices were bad. It’s like I checked into a 2 star hotel. There was no bacon and no sausages. The bread was also low quality. Overflowing coffee was watered down some days. We made the mistake of staying 8 days so it was 8 miserable breakfast days. If you want good coffee, you had to order it separately. There was an egg station and Pancake/Waffle Station and that was the saving Grace of the breakfast buffet. But you had to wait in line to get your eggs. The Menu was like adobo, bistek, inihaw na bangus, pancit canton - for breakfast? Really? It was like eating left overs from last night’s dinner. 

Massage - the Massage was good. But the oil used smelled of VCO. Maybe a little too cheap on their part? 

Transport - there is only 1 beaten down golf cart for all the guests to use. So seniors and families with babies… be prepared to Walk. I myself had a Massage and I requested the golf cart to bring me back to our new room since it was raining hard. The masseuse told me that I had to Walk back since the 1 and only gold cart was being charged. I had to Walk through the murky, slightly flooded road with probably a lot of bat poop and bayawak poop in there. Oh well. The resort manager was friendly and accommodating. He actually made up for the weaknesses of his staff - specially the front desk. 

This resort is severely understaffed and the people are not trained that well. So not ready for pandemic-Liberated and travel excited people to flock them. Calling for the attention of the staff here was a chore. Some rooms need renovation. The Restaurant floors need renovation as well. You could actually feel people walking around because of the vibrations. Equipment needs upgrading and changing. There were several power outages as well as the generators needed maintenance and repair. Maybe it has something to do with the pandemic? Not sure. While the island itself is indeed worthy being called Paradise and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking, the total experience here feels like Purgatory. It’s a 3 star experience being advertised as a 4 star hotel/resort.

We checked in on time but our rooms weren’t ready and we were given our keys almost an hour after. The wait could have been longer if I didn’t follow up bec the rooms were already ready but they just didn’t let us know so we waited for nothing. I informed them a say prior that we had a senior with us and yet no one mentioned that our room was one of the farthest rooms. We ask if we can just rebook and just get the nearest room but they told us that they were all booked (even when their website says otherwise). They only have one golf cart and it’s low bat most of the time so most of the time my grandma was forced to walk even though she’s having a hard time walking. Also, the telephone was not working in our room so I had to message directly to the front desk but it would always take 30 mins for them to answer. We got a sunrise villa and they told us that there will be complementary coffee/hot choco and pandesal. They asked what time they should bring it. They suggested to have it brought to the villa at 5:30am but I said I’m ok with 6am. The complementary coffee/hot choco and pandesal arrived 7am and it made me late for my snorkeling session. It wouldn’t have arrived if I didn’t remind them of it. The food was just ok. Nothing special for a very high price tag. During the transpo from the island to the airport, the boat and van were all full and did not follow and social distancing protocols. It was so full that some had to seat on a monoblock inside the boat. We paid almost 25k per night and I think the service we got is not worth anything near that.

I realized that 7 days in the island is not enough. This is where you commune with nature. The monitor lizards, the herons, the bats..they are living harmoniously with the guests.It’s nature at its best. You just want to simply stare at the pristine beach and sip you favorite drink while basking in the sun. Seeing the staff enjoy their work will make you smile and you will feel they take pride in what they do. The service is not scripted and you know it’s genuine…purely from the heart. Maraming Salamat to all of you. Please take me back….
