stayed in this hotel upon recommendation.. we were a big group of 11 (two families... four parents and adult children). during our stay there were about 10 other guests... so not crowded at all. the cedar/native cabana rooms were spacious but without tv and wifi; toiletries - average; bed - ok; pillows a little on the too-hard side for myself....

I title this as such due to the fact that booking a vacation in El Rio would mean that you would already have an idea as to what you will be expecting from the place. You will expect the following: A nice White Sand beach - check; Comfortable Rooms (just make sure you take cottages 1 to 4 as well...

The service that we got here is superb, I must say. Everything is just so perfect. Staff were very much friendly and accomodating. Can't get over with the breathtaking view of this island.

Stayed here for 1 night after 3 nights at Club Paradise! They're sister resorts. I'm glad I only stayed 1 night, coz there really isn't much to do or see & was really bored! Lunch buffet was a joke! Ants all over the dessert & found a hair on one of the dishes. Staff were friendly but need training. It...

El Rio y Mar Resort Have you ever had a massage on a raft, 200m off shore, while gentle waves lapped and slapped against the bamboo? Let me say, it is blissful and well worth the effort of a dawn start, a plane, a minivan and a boat to El Rio Y Mar. The perfect place for a romantic getaway....

El Rio is in Northern Palawan, in the Coron-Busuanga area. You have to view El Rio in context with its sister property, Club Paradise (whose prices are about the same). Club Paradise was built first, and is on a private island with a truly magnificent beach - not a commonplace shoreline, but a vast accumulation of perfect white sand with...
