What a perfect holiday... A very peaceful island. Great customer service.Food was so yummy. World class amenities. We really enjoy the fish feeding, kayaking. Island spa was superb... Coron Island tour is a little bit expensive but it's all worth it. I wish we could stay there longer... Highly recommended and we'll definitely coming back...xoxo

We booked our reservations directly to El Rio's office in Manila and we coordinated our flight details 2 weeks before our scheduled arrival at the resort. We have confirmed airport and boat transfers as per communication through email with reservations officer Mafe. Unfortunately, upon arrival at Busuanga airport we waited for 30mins outside the airport expecting that there will be...

Location: It is an Island with many free activities (see below) around the area. The problem is it very far from Coron Town (Main Town) which offers CHEAP Coron Island Tours and food. Boat and Van transfer going to Main Town (30-40 minutes away) is very expensive. So, you will be stuck in the Island with very expensive food and...

From the pick-up at the airport to my departure, I have never experienced such an amazing customer service. The resort employees was a team of 3 for pick-up of 1 person. Even though the next flight was only 45 mins after my arrival, they drove me to the river/boat pick-up site so that I don't have to wait. The guys...

It was quite a very relaxing 3 days and a much needed down time at El Rio y Mar Resort. I love the ambiance, the food, and the fact that I can sit and just watch the waves. I go to go on a hike in the area-maintained by the resort. Did quite a lot of meditating and feeding the...

This is a lovely venue for a family get together. Quiet tropical getaway, with clean and spacious rooms, attentive and friendly staff, delicious food with lots of variety. Only drawback is the wifi but I didn't come for that. Although ask for a phone for your room. Other than that, my cousins and I had a wonderful time!!! I highly...

We booked 3 rooms and got free room upgrades from native cabanas to casa rooms! Our room is always kept clean and smelling fresh. There are towels everywhere in the resort; they are so generous with towels that we are even allowed to bring them in our island hopping tour even if we did not get the package from them....

I spent 2 nights in Rio Y Mar Resort with my sister in July. It was a peaceful quiet place, excellent for relaxation. The pool is small but clean, however there are other swimming options. The bar in the marina is a good hangout, same with the lounge infront of the Reception, the only areas with wifi access. Telephone signals...
