The rooms are a bit basic and the food in the restaurants is average but the overall experience is good value for money.
I took a minibus transfer from Manila and after a two hour drive took a boat ride across to the hotel which was about one hour. The shuttle bus is okay, a little dull but the bus was air-conditioned and as comfortable as can be expected. The boat ride is reasonably fun but I imagine it could get a bit choppy if the weather is bad.
The resort itself is clean and was very quiet when I stayed. The staff are very friendly and there is a lot of effort put in to try and keep guests entertained.
The spa was good value and fitted in with the overall feel of the resort, It feels almost family-run and whether you like your stay here will depend on the type of holiday you are looking for. For a basic but relaxing stay that offers good value for money then I would recommend Coco Beach. If you need more luxuries then you may want look elsewhere.
