I just came back from a 5 days stay in Coral Bay. We were a big group with many very young children. All in all, I had a bad experience (with the resort, not with the holiday itself which was very good) and I would not advise anyone to go there, especially with children or person needing special arrangements.

Dear Ms. Helene. Well, well! It was for us and all other Resort guests and staff, very difficult with you and all of your 7 babies from 0 to max.4 years old. Occupying the whole restaurant, and turn it into a kindergarden, playing with our expensive dive and guide books. Childrens music on a laptop and no space for other...

A very friendly and beautiful resort, rather close to Coron. Amazing food, nice rooms very close to the beach, amazing reef just outside! Also free kayaks, which gives you the possibility to go to nearby beaches.

Should be on your wishlist! Diver or not, every single cent is worth it! We were very well taken care from the moment we stepped out from the airport. Their food satisfied our taste buds. All the staff were very accomodating and was very helpful in everyway. The owners took time to chat with us. Not to mention, Monica was...

Coral Bay Beach and Dive Resort was the last of a jam packed 2-week trip that my husband and I were on. We flew CEBU air to Busaunga Island where we were met by a man with a van and a lady assistant. There was only the two of us to be collected so off we went through the jungle...

We booked a five day stay at Coral Beach Resort through email/internet. I think the prices are reasonable. We went during the low season and we pretty much had the resort for ourselves. If you want a tranquil, quiet, restful, commune with nature, Coral Bay is the right place. If you want to party at night, this is not the...

My partner and I stayed here for five nights. The setting is really tranquil and beautiful and the resort is so relaxing. The rooms however I feel could do with some work. They just did not feel that clean and I didn’t feel comfortable. For the price you pay you expect a little more from the accommodation and it is...
