My husband and I recently stayed 3 nights at Sophia's Garden resort, just outside Coron, Palawan, Philippines. The hotel is a five minute trike ride from downtown Coron. We enjoyed staying out of town, as Sophia's was quiet and tranquil, but still and easy commute into the bustling, noisy town. The trike rides only cost $50P, or $1.25 each way.
The staff at Sophia's were amazing. They were all so friendly, and able to answer any question you had, whether about day trips, the food, or anything you needed at the hotel. There was a lot of staff for the small resort, so you were never looking for someone to help you.
The food was terrific, try the Tocino with the Philippine breakfast, or the French Toast was outstanding. The cook also made us a lunch to take on our second day of diving and they specially prepared some adobo one night for us since we don't like seafood.
Very nice pool, the grounds are gorgeous and well maintained, and the rooms are VERY clean. Much nicer then the more expensive hotel we stayed in Subic Bay.
