I would only come here to go diving with dugongs or if I had a big family group with lots of children who need entertaining during the day. The rooms are odd - you feel like you're in a log cabin in Canada not in a beachfront hut (and we stayed in the nicest room). The food and drinks are...

This is our best vacation so far! We had the best experience from the moment we stepped on the private motor boat that picked us up from a private river dock. Very courteous boat driver and a cabin man. Not to mention the very nice and informative private van transfer driver who did a little history class about Coron. Then,...

The Coron island area trip is a must, first time I have been snorkelling properly and I have to say the places we visited were absolutely amazing, I will...

Definitely a must see in Coron! Situated in the other end of Busuanga island, opposite Coron Town Proper, is the river and sea resort - El Rio Y Mar Resort. After a breath-taking cruise on a river with mangroves, then continuing to about 10 min on the sea, you will reach El Rio Y Mar. The place is a real...

The staff is really friendly and helpful from the very first contact. We added our teen daughter to the trip at the last minute and the staff brought in an extra bed for her, and she played volleyball with the staff almost every day we were there. Everyone made us feel very welcomed and at home. The rooms are not...

This place has some of the best beach and softest sands I have been to. A large coral garden is right at the dock, and we could see a lot of fishes (including a lion fish) swimming at the dock steps at sunset. A lion fish at the dock steps! Isn't that unbelievable! The western food is more delicious than...
