We were there in april 2017 for about 4 days which were really really awesome. Everything was perfect: location, people, food. Vicky (the owner) is really friendly. This Guesthouse is owned by the family which means if you stay there, the money goes to the family and not to a rich investor or something. LOCATION: you are in the north...

Great place for those who want to escape the tourism of Coron town. Had a great couple dives. Had a magical encounter with the Dugongs- Vicky's is one of only a couple outfits that can actually find them and cares for their preservation. Furthermore, Brenda is a wonderful human!

A great basecamp to explore the sorroundings and have a genuine, friendly and local experience in a lovely place. Thanks to Brenda we got to see the dugongs! Swimming with these creatures is a unique experience, not to be missed if you happen to visit Coron & Busuanga. We had the chance to see a female with her calf and...

Word of mouth really goes a long way! As divers we wanted to dive the wreck in north Coron, sadly the Dugong dive center's owner Dirk was a Jerk; BUT THANKFULLY a local from Riverhouse mentioned diving with Brenda from the Riverhouse. :) she is an absolute gem! Although her dive business is short of marketing, she sure provided the...

It's been a pleasure to stay at Vickys guesthouse. Very friendly people, and a extra star for Brenda! It's right by the water and a very quiet and peaceful place. Great rooms as well. Great food and a very homely place.

Brenda is the best host! She and her family run this place; it is a gem of Palawan- that is for SURE! Brenda guides, Mama cooks, and others help make it an unforgettable experience.

This guesthouse is in a quiet part of Coron so is great if you want to get away from the bustle of Coron town. The place is simple but made fantastic by Brenda who runs it and is also a dive instructor. I was travelling with my partner and Brenda took us out to look for Dugongs (we saw a...

“Check if there are other guests around, because you can get one of the three rooms with shared bathroom by 600 php and you'll not be sharing with anyone else - so, in practice, you almost get a private bathroom room by the price of a shared.”
