Pros: - Extremely quiet - Good atmosphere and character - Friendly staff Cons: - Far away from the beauty of Coron and its surrounding islands - No compassion to assist us with our transfer to the island (which is stated "included" in the costs), even though we advised our arrival 2 months in advance, the manager only sent an email...

My family and I stayed just before Xmas 2012. Thanks goodness we weren't there at the same time as the people in the review below! The resort is very peaceful - no music so you just get the sounds of nature. The beach is not the best aesthetically but interesting ecologically with the mangroves. Great reef right off the resort...

I just came back from a 5 days stay in Coral Bay. We were a big group with many very young children. All in all, I had a bad experience (with the resort, not with the holiday itself which was very good) and I would not advise anyone to go there, especially with children or person needing special arrangements.

A very friendly and beautiful resort, rather close to Coron. Amazing food, nice rooms very close to the beach, amazing reef just outside! Also free kayaks, which gives you the possibility to go to nearby beaches.

We booked a five day stay at Coral Beach Resort through email/internet. I think the prices are reasonable. We went during the low season and we pretty much had the resort for ourselves. If you want a tranquil, quiet, restful, commune with nature, Coral Bay is the right place. If you want to party at night, this is not the...
