This is a small property, with about fifteen units situated in a U-shape around a rectangular swimming pool that is lit at night using a cool LED system that changes color. We stayed in the "family room," which has two queen beds and a small TV. There really isn't any "decor"--everything is white or whitish, including the sand-colored tile floor. The room seemed a bit barren at first, but we soon got used to it. Four raised thatched huts in the courtyard that have low tables and accomodate sitting in the Korean style are quite popular and are sometimes all occupied in the evening. Our unit didn't get much of a breeze--it had two very small windows on one side, and a door and unscreened window on the other--but the overhead fan did a good job of circulating air. Like many other places in Coron, the AC and hot water for the shower are available when the municipal power supply is on, which is from 1 p.m. to 1 a.m. The electric water heater for the shower couldn't regulate the water temperature, which swung from cold (when it was "off") to scalding (after it was "on" for a while), so we had to lean into and out of the meager stream of water as it reached the right temperature. It was clean, though they once used a bed sheet that had the remains of some chewing gum on it. We were tired and didn't think it enough of a big deal to have it changed, though I'm sure that would have happened quickly if we had asked. Service is friendly, and we made use of the free tricycle to town a few times. Its a wonderfully quiet place. (Exception: One night a cat in heat moaned loud and long enough to wake the dead.) Despite these quibbles, I heartily recommend Sunz En. The proprietress, Angela Kim, combines steeliness and friendliness, which is probably the right combination for running a place like this successfully in the Philippines. It has many Korean guests.
