Me and 3 other friends stayed at this hotel for 3d2n for a discounted price. Got the 50% off voucher from Ensogo inclusive of dinner.
RESERVATION - pretty okay. Ms. Michelle sent me an email w/ the attached file of their tour package and rates (so expensive - which made me avail somewhere else).
CHECKin and CHECKout - We arrived at 12pm. Unfortunately, the reserved Executive Suite for us is still being cleaned by housekeeping. Front desk allowed us to use a Jr. Suite room so we can leave our baggage and change for our 1pm tour that day. Had no problems upon check-out. We handed the keys, I took some pictures and we left.
ROOMS - Amazing. Super. Cool. Perfect. Hotel quality rooms, really. The Jr. Suite is awesome. It has a queen size bed, love seat, flat screen TV, tub, toilet w/ bidet, split-type aircon. We couldn't stop taking pictures :D The Executive suite has 2 queen size beds and pretty much the same as the Jr. Suite except for the love seat. Hot shower is really hot. Ow, I remember we had some problems with the Air conditioning unit at Room210. I thought there was power loss because the room feels really hot, like the ac is in Fan mode or something. No WiFi connection in the rooms.
FOOD - didn't like it. Bland. The restaurant looks great, formal table setting with complete silver wares. WiFi is available there but it's very weak to not working at all.
OTHERS - The hotel provides beach towels that you can bring during tours even if you will not avail of theirs. You may also request for extra pillows. Amenities in the room includes 8 bottles of water, organic soap, toothpaste, shampoo (Head & Shoulders) :D If you want to have towels replaced the next day, put it on the floor. If you are a gadget person, you'll definitely like the rooms because there's outlet everywhere. I think I saw at least 8 if I'm not exaggerating :)
STAFF - great housekeeping and front desk staff. Always smiling. The staff at the restaurant are also welcoming and accommodating. Thanks y'all!
I never experienced the "NOISE" other reviewers are talking about. I think because our room is on the other side of the hotel facing the port. Had a great veranda to watch the sunrise.
I'll be coming back to Coron next year for sure. If given the same affordable rate, I'll definitely stay here again because of their rooms.
