My partner and I have just left discovery island after staying for 6 nights there and for us it was perfect. Coron town itself is a bit of a dump but 10 minutes on a boat you are transported to a beautiful island with stunning views and very welcoming staff ... In fact they couldn't have done more! The room...

We need to look at different aspects. This review is solely about the resort/ hotel / restaurant. For the dive operator--which is unprofessional and dangerous in our opinion-- please seek our review in "things to do in Coron" by searching Discovery Divers Coron. THe note given here excludes the dive operation. 1- The hotel : we stayed in the individual...

I'm so happy I discovered this quiet and relaxed resort on a litte tiny island (just 5 minutes boat ride) from Coron Town. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Coron Town, but still be close enough to go there whenever you want, this is the place to stay! I stayed in a nice and...

Coron town is a dump, so the best option is to stay on one of the nearby islands for some peace and quiet. The location of the cottages is without a question fantastic. The view is splendid! Their landscaping is great as well with all sorts of lovely flowers. Their new cottages are particularly nice, so when you book, ask...

We choose this place because we wanted to relax and be away from town. I am so glad we did. Coron, the town, is very loud and ugly and I met two guests who moved from town because they wanted peace and quiet. Simple is the word I would use to describe the accommodations. We stayed in the cottage with...

Discovery Island is a great resort located just a ten minute boat ride from Coron town proper. The rooms offer excellent value for money. All the staff and management are friendly and being on an island gives the place a sense of community. The food in the restaurant is all excellent. If you need to go to town then a...

We visited discovery bay just 3 weeks after the typhoon. While there was some damage, they (especially Alan, the manager) made every effort to provide guests with a good experience. There was a generator to replace mainland electricity and a 3g dongle to replace internet. The location is just 5 min from town, so you can always have dinner there...

I stayed only 3 nights at the Discovery Island Resort but it was 3 very relaxing and nice nights. A public van was waiting for me at the airport and drived me at the piers of Coron Town where a boat took over to drop me at the resort. The staff was very helpful and gave me many tips about...
