Coron Gateway Hotel & Suites

This hotel has a very nice outdoor setting for having a drink with friends. There is a regular performer singing local songs, English and even Chinese songs. The performances start at 7PM up to 11PM and may sometimes extend up to 12mindnight whenever there are still a lot of guests. You can also sing your heart out and even have a duet with the very friendly singer.
The outdoor setting also let you enjoy the stars and the cool breeze blowing from the nearby Lualhati park.

i got the junior suite and it was a big clean room with a big bathroom and a balcony...the water pressure in the shower was really sucks you take for ever to take a shower and the hot water was occasionally if your lucky... the room got a flat TV, king size bed, mini fridge and a safe box. you have to sit in the hallway to get connected with their WIFI. they play music really loud at night till late hours which is sucks as i had to wake up early for diving.
i didnt like the food in the hotel restaurant not a lot of verities, small portions and i mean really small portions, tasteless and overpriced. i would stay there if no other choices but dinning somewhere else and that my own opinion.

Room Tip: suites with balconies

Our packaged here was so worth it! They gave us two really nice and big rooms, assisted us with our needs and they were very accommodating. We loved the location of the hotel since it is right beside the port and wet market. They also have a good wifi connection so we were able to show part of coron (port) to our friends via FaceTime. Two thumbs up for this hotel!

It's right beside the jetty port so it's very easy to start your tours especially the island hopping. The room and its toilet is very spacious for 4 persons. They have a bath tub but have problems with the water supply, so it took us very long to fill it up. Their restaurant/food had limited choices (dinner buffet) and the quality was sub standard. But the service was good and the reservations took note of our request for a bay view, yes we had a veranda with a very good view. Quite pricey but good enough because of its accessibility.

Stayed Nov 2011

Room Tip: ask for the bay view, the other side faces the market

Hotel is at the port so its the best jump off point for island hopping. You can get the help of the hotel staff to book for you boat rental and the price is very reasonable. A big boat we got for P1500 only for the entire day which brought us to all the key attractions at Coron. The boatman was also very kind enough to buy stuff at the market which he cooked for our lunch. The room is spacious, the staff are accomodating. Wifi though is very poor.

Fortunately I managed to find a deal that gave me half-price on the presidential suite other I would have felt bombed. The only things 'Presidential' about it was the size and the regular price! The shower worked only occasionally, there was no hot water during my three day stay, the toilet and bath both leaked (and by the water stains had done for a long time), the fittings were loose and one plug socket blew up!

The general state of the hotel is old and faded and worn. It has a good location near the centre of town and the staff are friendly but unable to rectify any of the problems I raised with the room. I was promise that a 'maintenance' man would sort out the hot water and shower every day but nothing happened.

In short the hotel is grossly over priced and needs a thorough overhaul.

Room Tip: Don't pay full price for the Presidential suite; you'll be very very disappointed.
