4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights in August. Location is close to center of town, trike charges only 8 pesos per passenger. Airport transfer is standard 150 pesos. Breakfast is available on the restaurant on the third floor. 650 peso Kayangan Lake tour can be arranged thru the Front desk.
They have hot water facility in their typical Philippine bathroom. Excellent value for budget travellers. Very clean rooms. Nice view of the sea from the rooftop restaurant.

We rented a family room. Spacious with cable channel and free wifi. Rooms are clean but no hot shower. Breakfast is ok but they preparation for the food is so slow. They will still buy the ingredients in the market and wait for so long before they will serve the dish.

My husband and I got a tour package so we could not choose the place to stay for our trip but if we had a choice, we would not stay here.

Pros: Hotel personnel and manager were, overall, friendly and helpful, so that helped soothe out the negatives of this place. Location was nice as it was walking distance to a lot of places in town.

Cons: Our room was very small; I had read one review that mentioned this so I was expecting it but the reality was still quite jarring. You hardly can move because it really was just big enough for a double-sized bed, a side table, and a medium-sized table, that's it, which made it very uncomfortable and felt very claustrophobic to stay in.

They put us on the 3rd floor, which is accessible only by going up 3 flights of steep stairs so our room location was just below the roof deck where the restaurant is and from there, there was no avoiding the blasts of karaoke singing, which could go on all night long. I don't really fault the other guests for this as this is a hotel feature, but this is the last thing you want to hear when you come back to the hotel very tired and and wanting a relaxing night's sleep. They are supposed to be building a new wing, so I hope that they transfer their restaurant there if they want to keep the karaoke (still karaoke should never be part of such a peaceful place imo).

Also the bathrooms lack rails or hooks to hang your stuff on and the toilet seat has no cover. the whole bathroom gets wet when you shower.

On our second day, the water disappeared for nearly an hour in the morning because something went awry. Another reviewer had written that their water was an iffy thing so i hope that this does not happen regularly.

If you don't mind staying in a place this small and sleeping to the sounds of karaoke singing, then this is ok; but if not, you'd be better off elsewhere.

We stayed here during our honeymoon this January 19-21, 2012...I did love the Turquoise Room! :) and ALL STAFF were VERY accommodating, friendly and polite! :) We traveled with family and friends....hehe..a honeymoon with company!...but we all had the satisfaction and got beyond excellence services on the package tour that Ms. Bev offered us! ...Negative feedback: NONE! :) you may ask for a swimming pool which they don't have but who needs a swimming pool in Coron...you're surrounded by natural and beautiful bodies of waters so who cares for a swimming pool :)
