Villa Khadine Grandvista Resort
Ranked #42 of 69 Coron B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 31, 2012

We stayed at the Gran Vista Inn which (as the other reviewer had mentioned) is about a few minutes drive to town. I love th location since it's not so close to Coron Town and you still have that feeling of seclusion. The trike ride is not bad at all.

Customer Service experience here is pretty much spot on. We stayed and purchased the island hopping tour through the onwer and along with it breakfast and dinner when we got back from our day activities.

I must say that the people who work here are so welcoming, friendly and would go out of their way to make sure your experience is great. I wouldn't consider this whole back to basics a downside since I really have no problem with having no A/C in the room as long as there's a fan but traveling with 2 other guys (husband and brother-in-law) they felt that an A/C was a necessity so here's a few warning from me if or before you book Gran Vista:

1) No A/C
2) Electricity shuts off at around 2am/3am and is pretty much out throughout the day. Not a big deal if you plan on being out all day anyway which is exactly what we did.
3) The water gets shut off so some might find it annoying not being able to walk into your room, needing a shower and you have to tell someone to turn it on.

BUT.....

Don't let the warnings above ruin your trip here. I truly enjoyed my stay at Gran Vista plus they had an amazing view of a few islands in the very back of the property. Would I stay here again knowing what I know now? ABSOLUTELY.

This resort is perfect for those wanting to stay somewhere comfortable yet affordable. The resort of Gran Vista is a 7-8 minute ride out of the town. It's got eco-tourism written all over it and is ideal for being close to CT but not in it. It's clean and well run and better value for money than many other resorts.

The Castaway Resort is it's sister resort. Both the Gran Vista and Castaway lack the amenities of the bigger resorts but that's part of their charm. They suit customers for whom having just the basic necessities appeals.

Like the name sounds 'Castaway' really is back-to-basics but you are in great hands. The service from the staff at both resorts is excellent. Castaway is a 10-12 minute boat ride from CT harbour. The resort has it's own jetty and gives you a true sense of isolation.

The website for Gran Vista and Castaway has more information. You'll find the staff will help with trips and tours etc

I would thoroughly recommend staying here to customers NOT looking to be pampered but treated well and made to feel welcome.
