The owner and the staffs are friendly. The resort is clean and quiet, a perfect place to stay after a day of island hopping. Also, the breakfast is delicious. My family really enjoyed staying there. Highly recommended for family and couples who are looking for a quiet place to stay at El Nido.

Coral Bay is well run, clean, and a real gem of a resort. We were meant to stay at Greenviews, but had a bad experience there and after one night, we moved to Coral Bay. It was the single best decision we made during our trip to El Nido. The room was spacious, spotless and comfortable and we had a... More

Very intimate as we were about less than 15 guests (mostly foreigners, locals started coming in after Xmas). Owner is also a foreigner. The husband is nice.

Had a great stay at this homey resort. It's right in front of the beach on the other side of El Nido called Corong Corong. There was only a handful or resort in this area and Coral Bay was the nicest in my opinion. The courtyard was very nice, everything was handmade except for the light fixtures and water faucets....
