We arrived at Coral Bay around 1:00 pm. Bob, one of the owner was the one who met us. After paying, he took us to the family room with a large veranda overlooking the sea. The room was so big with three queen size beds if Im not mistaken. Parents bed was separated from the kids bed. The room is clean including the toilet. There is an AC and two ceiling fan. There is a dining table inside. Outside is the veranda where you can see the view of the sea with the islands around El Nido. Coral Bay only provide breakfast as part of the package. For lunch and dinner, we go out to the town and take our meals. It will only take us 5 minutes by tricycle.
Coral Bay resort is peaceful and quiet. Add to that are the accommodating owners, Bon and Allan (with his wife Mercedes) who made our 3 nights stay so great. They arranged the boat trip for the island hopping. They also asked us what breakfast do we want to ensure that my family will enjoy it. And the best is the effort they did for us to be able to watch the Manny Pacquiao/Marquez fight.
If there is anything bad about El Nido. It was the power interuption. There is a scheduled brown out in Palawan wherein during our stay has never been consistent. It was really inconvenient for us. I think Palawan management should fix this problem because this will kill tourism in the place for sure.
The tour, well...its awesomeeeeeee!!! The lagoons, the crystal clear water beaches in the island tour were so great that we enjoyed every minute of it. This was the first time that I saw these limestone structures. Great trip indeed. And the sunset? I can only say wow. See the pictures for your pleasure.
One more thing is that,Coral Bay is not asking downpayment or deposit for the reservation. You can reserve and if you dont like the place, you are free to find another place. That is how they guarantee the place to the customer.
Thank you Bob and Allan. Hope to see you again.
