Spent 3 nights here. Did some awesome scuba diving. Staff are very accommodating and Rhiza is very helpful. If you like quite and relax time but still like to have an easy access in town this is the perfect place. Definitely coming back here. The picture is the view from our room.

You have to pay for cleaning the room (!) They are not really enthusiastic or giving a lot of information about diving which is strange since it is a dive centre. The rooms are not that Nice. We rented snorkeling gear which were broken, i think that a diving centre should have working equipment. Also the snorkeling trip was not...

Discovery Island Resort is located on its own island. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place to be. They have a restaurant in-house and the food is really good. I don't mind not being in town among all the bustles. The boat can take you to the main island anytime until 11:00 pm. The resort can also...

Hidden charges. Unlike all the other hotels i booked the price advertised on booking.com was not the final price. They added a big tip on for themselves and the Tax afterwards making the bill 25% more than was advertised. This is misleading. No hot running water or even warm water just freezing cold water from the shower. When I queried...

The stuff is really friendly and we have nothing to complain about them. Also the food is nice at the nearby restaurant. But there were a few negative points: - The bungalow is simple and cozy but the price per night is too high. There is just a cold water shower and the water tastes irony. - The phonenumber we...

Expensive place, not good value for money. Staff is unkind and inflexible, mostly after more money. Restaurant was truly very poor, serving noodles from the prefab dried package. You cannot swim at the place or anywhere near. Rooms were spacious and clean,nice views.

Great place to stay in if you want peace & tranquility. It's in an island so you have to take a short boat ride going to and from the town. All the staff are friendly & helpful. The owner was very hands on & mingles with the guests. My husband & I really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this...

This is an island resort few minutes boat ride from the pier of coron. They provide you with boat to the town (vice versa) but you have to make sure to give an allowance for the timing as they are sometimes late. You have to inform the reception the time you need the boat from the resort and when you...

While we certainly enjoyed our stay at this hotel, a couple of things can be said. First, there is pretty much nothing to do on the hotel's little island. The beach/swimming area isn't really doable as the water is quite dirty and there can be jellyfish about. Second, with our family it became sort of a joke that there was...
