My family and I stayed at The Funny Lion for 3 days and 2 nights before switching to another hotel. After our experience at The Funny Lion, we wished we had just stayed there for the entire duration of our Coron trip - we didn't want to leave! The hotel staff were very thoughtful and provided my family and I with such a personalized experience; attentive and immediately tending to our every need. They had bottles of water and wet towels prepared for us upon pick up at the airport, and welcome drinks upon reaching the hotel. We had mentioned wanting to book an island tour for our 2nd day and they immediately took care of it for us, allowing us to enjoy the rest of the day by their pool and the beautiful sunset from their jacuzzi on their rooftop. The next day we were surprised to find packed bags of towels and bottled water waiting for us at the reception for us to bring on our island tour. The attention to detail and the staff's genuine desire to serve guests the best possible experience was very much appreciated by my family and I. The staff were quick with suggestions when we were unsure of where to eat our meals, giving us directions and calling over tricycles to take us whenever needed. Every day and night of our stay, we always came back to the hotel to friendly faces and warm greetings. We truly appreciated every moment spent in The Funny Lion and I never hesitate to recommend the place whenever I have friends traveling to Coron. The hotel may not be the biggest or grandest, but the hospitality the staff readily provides makes up for it 10x more. Plus, the scenery and sunsets seen from their rooftop bar are not to be missed! Truly can't wait til my next visit. Keep up the amazing work!

We stayed at The Funny Lion in early March of this year when we had to make an unexpected detour during our honeymoon trip . At first, I have to admit, we didn't consider the resort because of the name. We decided to give it a chance however when our friends recommended it. After all the reviews were good, the photos online looked nice and the location seemed to be fine. We were not disappointed! The friendly airport representatives waited for our arrival at Busuanga Airport. This has to be pre-arranged but is worth it for just a few pesos more than having to sort out your own transportation. Cold towels and chilled bottles of water were offered before heading to the resort in their van. We always appreciate this simple gesture when traveling! The resort is a pleasant, peaceful, safari-themed property with a lovely pool area that can be easily enjoyed the whole day. Just be a bit cautious when coming in and out of the pool as it can be quite slippery. The room we had was nice and spacious and we were greeted by lovely honeymoon amenities. Once in a while, we would find freshly made beverages in our fridge during the day and a delightful sweet treat from the Chef at night. I have to mention how wonderful it was to come back to our room after it was cleaned each day, it smelled so clean and relaxing. At Hunt, the resort's restaurant, aside from some items being either a bit too salty or too sweet, the menu choices are creative and mostly delicious. From the front office to the restaurant side, service was consistently good. Everyone was always engaging and friendly. A special commendation to JB, the duty manager and Thel from Hunt restaurant.

We had booked a stay at the Funny Lion for 3 nights but due to the lockdown the hotel had to decide to close it’s doors for a while. The duty manager, Jay, his service was of the highest quality. He really helped us out. We want to thank you, Jay, so much for all your help. Even though we didn’t stay at the hotel, we were allowed to make use of the jacuzzi on the rooftop. The view from the rooftop is breathtaking and the service at the Funny Lion is great. We will definitely recommend a stay at the Funny Lion. We will be back one day!

"Hi Esther! Thank you so much for your review. We're very sorry to know that your plans had to change because of the government-mandated community quarantine. Despite this, we're glad that Jay were able to assist you and still provide you with the warmest service during your short stay here in Coron. We're glad that during this short period, you were able to enjoy the view from our Pride Rock Deck--this is definitely one of the best views in the island especially when the sun sets. Thank you so much for your recommendation and we hope to welcome you once again and finally be able to stay with us when circumstances get better."

I wanted to say a huge thank you to the Funny Lion for thinking about their future customers and making their cancellation/refund process very easy and quick in light of everything that is going on in the world. Such honesty from the hotel, a caring attitude and absolutely no problem in refunding our money (unlike some other hotels and airlines sadly). We are absolutely gutted that we will not be staying with you in April but know that once this craziness is over we definitely will. See you soon....we hope!

The staff are wonderful. The hotel is a short hop out of the central town. The hotel has a tricycle service into town, takes about 5 min and getting back is about P100 in a local tricycle or a 30 min walk. Very safe walk but you might want torch for some of the walk home. Rooms are large and well appointed.The air conditioner a bit noisy at night, so bring earplugs We loved the small touches the hotel offer. Little drinks in the fridge every day, a free foot massage at the pool, all unexpected and appreciated. The pool was really nice. Not too warm or cold, just perfect. And lots of sunny and shady areas. The jewel of the hotel is the bar on the rooftop. Amazing views and good happy hour cocktails.

Hi kiwitripper64! Thank you so much for your review. We're very delighted to hear that you enjoyed your vacation with us. The location of our resort is indeed ideal for those who wish to have a relaxing stay after a day of adventure yet still a few minutes away from the main town. We're also very happy to hear that you enjoyed our amenities especially the views at Pride Rock Deck. It is also our favorite spot to watch the sunset with of course, our favorite cocktail in hand. Thank you so much for choosing The Funny Lion for your vacation here in Coron and we hope to welcome you once again in the future.
