Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is an elegant, up-market option near the centre and port of Coron. The common areas of the hotel are attractive and the bedrooms are large and immaculate. The in-house restaurant offers an excellent cooked breakfast and good evening meals. Do not hesitate to stay here if you don't mind spending around Euro 100 a night.

We had 3 nights at the Corto del Mar situated in the heart of the main town and only a few minutes from the ferry and 30 mins to the airport. As many have already reported there are benefits of being the best hotel in town next to the locals, the shops and the restaurants but this is offset by the disadvantages of being the best hotel in town, next the locals, the shops and the restaurants. The rooms are decent and large, the food was ok and most of the staff seemed keen to help. There is a fabulous pool but the furniture and grounds need work and why don’t the bar staff be a bit more active in selling their product ? The hotel has a relationship with a couple of local boats that operate the day trips, ours was a disaster but hopefully they have improved by the time you arrive. Or pick one of the 100 others on offer outside the hotel and at a lower price. Enjoy……

We had 2 nights here - the hotel reception and restaurant is beautiful, lots of wooden structures and furniture and a lovely big pool. Staff - as everywhere in the Philippines - are so lovely. Our room was huge and comfortable. For breakfast there is a buffet as well as freshly cooked eggs/omelettes/pancakes made in front of you, which we thought was great. Very easy to walk to restaurants and bars locally - we would recommend Rapsa Nui food park, great street food and live music. The hotel does overlook the local neighbourhood- which is a great way to get involved, meet the lovely local people and buy some things from them to help the people and animals. Hopefully more people will visit and support, rather than complain.

A very nice hacienda style Hotel. Very clean and spacious room. The pool is very nice too. The breakfast buffet that was included was very satisfying. There location is ideal because its walking distance to nicer restaurants in town. With the location its sorrounded by locals. The only negative was the internet. It only works at the lobby. The staff were very helpful. They will cater to all your needs if they can. Highly recommended.

Had a great stay here last week. The staff are exceptionally nice, willing to help with any needs, but also let you go about your day with no bother. A lot of hotels try up sell or constantly ask if you need anything poolside.. Great breakfast and the cocktails by the pool are amazing. Only down side is that the pool could have used a leaf clean, but it was nice and quiet/ perfect temperature during the day. If you don't like kids running around the pool screaming and splashing, this is the place for you. I wouldn't recommend the seaview room if you are looking for great sea views, but the room/ bathroom were very clean, roomy, and the beds very comfortable! I would stay here again!

The hotel is really underrated! It was our favorite hotel of our trip in the Philippines. The hotel is very pretty! It is clean and has very very helpful and friendly staff. The food from their own hotelrestaurant was really good and not that expensive. The cocktails are very good as well. All in all a really good stay!! They can help you with several tours, scooter rental etc.

Corto del Mar, lovely hacienda style hotel with large and deep swimming pool in the centre. Great location in town with most things within 10 min walking distance. Rooms were very generous in size as were the bathrooms. Toiletries were sparse although really liked the soap provided. Breakfast was fine, definitely an early riser hotel as we came down "later" and many of the options were completely finished although good omelet station and bacon/pancakes to order. The negatives are that the hotel is a bit aged, towels were very thin and frayed, a few little stains on linen and the beds quite low. We had a lot of street noise in the early evening with dogs fighting and roosters crowing but it was manageable. Staff were great, very friendly and helpful to all requests. Little areas for improvement but overall would definitely recommend staying here.

Starting by the positive: -Room is very large. -Seems clean and higienic. -It was our honeymoon and they acknowledged it with some decoration in the room prior to check-in. - Pool is quite large with the deepest end being 7feet. Negative regarding the product: -View of the room was facing a slum. Lots of garbage in a corner, and the locals would engage in conversation if I would walk into the balcony to try and sell me private tours. -Product needs investment, the room curtains were ripped, the cushions in the pool are very dirty and worn off. TV is basic, no smart TV, no HDMI cable, no Netflix, no fire stick. As it gets dark around 7pm, it would be good to have something to watch at night. -Breakfast is just sad. I've stayed 3 weeks in the Philippines, I've come last year another 3 weeks, my spouse and therefore great part of my family is Filipino, so I'm used to the local food. Here I had the most disappointing breakfasts. Last 2 mornings I just had eggs and bread. On last day even my spouse mention to be the worse beef tapas she ever had. 1 - there's only one choice of juice. Orange. In a country where watermelon, Mangos, pineapple and coconuts are in abundance, it doesn't quite make sense that the choice is orange and just orange. Even Calamansi juice would have been a better option. 2- the soup option doesn't make sense for breakfast. Sopas, Arroz Caldo, Congee would make sense, but potato soup and pumpkin soup?? 3- Breakfast seems to be better if you go before 8am as it is when most guests have it. If you go after you get leftovers, some dishes already finished. -Last but not least. For a tourism business located in a remote island they should have more sustainability concerns, didn't saw any initiatives around the hotel. Negative regarding service: Is just sad overall, the majority of the staff lacks passion or training for hospitality. Examples: - Stayed 4 nights, every single morning the same breakfast staff would ask me my room number. Not once they agnowledge my name. -Same with reception, not once did they agnowledge mine or my spouse name. -If you go before 8am they seem to be fully staffed, after 8:30 if you need something you will struggle to find a waiter, as there's usually only one. - There's a lot of staff using their own clothes and no name badge, is confusing when you need something to know who should you ask. - Most times receptionists are on their phones not caring to look up and say hi or bye when you pass by. -The culmination of poor service was on my last full day in Coron. As it was already 2 weeks since we were in Palawan, we were looking for some non sea related activities, and we booked a AvT with waterfalls and eco Park tour with the hotel reception. It seems that they only have one receptionist at a time so whenever she went for break a gentleman with no uniform or name tag was covering her dinner. We booked with that person, who confirmed everything was done. One hour later probably when the receptionist returned from her break we got a call in our room asking what your we wanted to do, weird but ok. We gave the same information and she confirmed us we would be picked up at 9am. Next day by 9:10 no one had called us, so we went down to the lobby, the receptionist as usual was engaged in her phone giggling. I apologized for interrupting her, told her we were waiting for our 9am pick up and she asked me my room number and told me she would call us when the pick up arrived. But we didn't had anything to do, so we just waited there in the lobby whilst she went back to her private matters on her phone. By 9h30 am I approached her again asking if she could confirm with your operator if everything was ok as it had been a while. At this moment her face went white and she asked me again my room number, then she said, "oh yes, I forgot to tell you, your tour was cancelled". It had been cancelled since the morning, but now it was 9:30, all tours had already departed and we couldn't engage in any activity anymore. No one even approached me after this to apologized for the inconvenience. Overall I would recommend you to book The Funny Lion or Marina del Sol Resort, is places we visited and had much better service for similar prices.

Lovely Spanish style Hotel with fantastic staff, large room, comfy bed and great shower right in Coron Town. We used the pool which was really enjoyable, breakfast was good and the staff are really the very best. Only down side was I had asked for 2 single beds and had confirmation that was fine but arrived to a large king, having slept fine on one the night before with no issues I didn't think it would be an issue; I didn't sleep well so lesson learnt, I should have got it fixed and I am sure they would have accommodated me.

I was a bit underwhelmed on arrival, the gardens are not well kept and the paint work is a bad colour and not well done. They could make a lovely garden waiting area out the front to the left of the driveway - but it's just a messy spot not used for anything. Our rooms was nice and big, with a balcony looking over the slum (not the hotels fault), great shower. Fantastic buffet breakfast, especially my oats and pancakes. Nothing was too much trouble, all the staff were so helpful and probably the best I have experienced in Asia.
