“We made the right choice”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

I chose islands view inn because of the great reviews in tripadvisor and it did live up to my expectations. The room is not as grand as the rooms in other hotels but it has everything that we needed to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. The staff has good customer service skills, they are very courteous and attentive to our needs and I really grew fond of them. On our first daY at the hotel, i did not notice that I dropped my envelope containing our tickets for our flight back to manila. Fortunately, one of the staffs found it and slid it under our room's door. This saved us from a lot of hassle. Also, when I was at the lobby, i overheard the receptionist instructing another staff to inform one of the guests not to worry about the lost cellphone because the guard found it

The quality and quantity of the breakfast is fine. I was able to try their tapsilog, dangitsilog, american and continental breakfast and all of it were delicious. However, the quantity of bacon which was included in the american breakfast was too little and was not enough to fill our stomachs. Also, it would have been better if they included vegetables in their menu.

Lastly, the hotel has tours which are significantly more expensive than what travel agencies offer. The reason behind this is unlike with the travel agencies where in you have to share the van, the tour and the guide with strangers, the tours that the hotel offer is just exclusive for your group. In our case, we arranged our tour package and hotel accomodation with calamian travels and since its not peak season, we just shared our tour with a few people and we had a wonderful time for less amount of money.

Some suggestions:
*Pls include free shampoo and room slippers
add vegetables to the menu
*pls ask the crew from the jasmines hotel (the hotel right beside islands view owned by the same family) not to hang their clothes in the rooftop next to the hotel's restaurant
*add telephone inside the rooms so the guests dont have to go out for heir requests
* one of the hotel rules is they are not liable for anyblost belongings left inside the room. In that case , pls add a vault. This will make guests feel more secured.
* add ref/fridge inside the room so guests can keep cold water and take outs.

The inn provided just what we needed during our stay, our basic needs such as hot shower, clean beds, ac, and tv. It also has balcony and each room were provided of racks were you can hang your wet swim suits after doing island hopping tours.
It has a good location near markets and restaurants, and just a few minutes away to the port for your island hopping tour. There is also a nearby bakery where you can buy good breads for breakfast if you don't want to avail of the inn's breakfast.
The staff are also friendly and provided good house keeping.

We stayed here back in April 2012. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay in Islands View Inn for 3 days & 2 nights. The inn is situated within walking distance of various restaurants and the port. They also have a covered rooftop restaurant where they serve breakfast and various meals. I find it really nice that the staffs would go ask the visitors their orders for breakfast the night before.

The room we stayed in was clean and has sufficient space for us. Just an fyi though for those who like their shower and toilet separate, theirs are right beside each other. Personally, it wasn't an issue because the bathroom seemed clean anyway. :)

I recommend the place for those tourists who are in a budget. I'll definitely stay in this inn again.

My friends and I stayed at this hotel for one night after doing a 5 day excurcion thorugh Palawan. The first thing that I noticed ( and loved) was the clean, HOT shower. It was reviving. The entire room was clean, with much needed aircon and fan. Also includes a decent tv. Location was great and we could easily walk around town for dinner. Breakfast is also served on the roof where the food was decent and the view was great. Would recommend.

it's centrally located in coron town -- walking distance to the market, plaza, pier, restaurants, souvenir shops (and even mt. tapyas viewdeck).

it's clean and new, and it has all the basic stuff one looks for -- comfy bed, aircon, flat screen tv, hot and cold shower, breakfast, and helpful staff.

comparing it with the other logding options in the area, i'd say islands view gives you the best value for what you pay for.

My stay with my family and relatives at Islands View Inn was truly great and memorable. I am recommending it to my friends. At an affordable price, the rooms are kept clean and comfortable, except for the bathroom facilities. The hot shower and toilet flushing system caused us some discomfort, but it was tolerable. The hotel is just a walking distance from the market and from famous tourist hangouts. We availed of one of their packages on which they provide all our food for all our meals during our stay in Coron, even when we're island hopping. It was unlimited food every meal, and we were like feasting on delectable foods during breakfast, lunch, and dinner...

We had travel 5 days and 4 nights with Tao Philippine, staying in huts in islands, and we needed a comfortable room for 3 adults and hot shower. Island view inn answered our request by providing a clean and large room with 1 double and 1 real single beds.
They also reserved 3 seats in a van to go to the airport the day after for a reasonable price (150 pesos / pax)
They have also rooms for 4 adults,but we didn't visit them.
Recommended.
