Where to stay in Palawan.

I will be traveling with my boyfriend to Palawan in early March 2012 for 3D/4N. This will be our first time to Palawan.

After do a bit of research I've narrowed down my options and can't decide whether to stay in Coron or Sabang. Whilst Sabang is near the undeground river I have read here that it is a short experience and that the beaches and marine life in Coron were more worth the time. I think Coron is higher on my list...but I could be convinced otherwise...

In terms of accomodation, we prefer to be in quieter and more secluded areas and we do enjoy our mod cons (air conditioning, hot water showers and electricity). We are keen snorkelers and intend to do an island hopping tour while we are there. We like the idea of being on a more secluded beach property than being near the nightlife or in town. Whilst Apuilt Island in TayTay would have been ideal, it is out of our price range -which is up to 10,000 php a night. We are currently looking at Club Paradise in Coron or Sheridan in Sabang. Although Sheridan doesn't quite have the Filipino touch we were hoping to experience. Does anyone have any other recommendations (either in Coron, Sabang or elsewhere)?

In addition, if we go with the Club Paradise option would it be worthwhile to pay for the full board? Will there be other food options on the island if we went for room only?

Also, is it easy to organize a Honda Bay island hopping tour from Sabang? It looks quite far on the map.

Sorry for the long post! Will appreciate any advice given!

the limestone formations that you will be able to see in coron is the same in halong bay vietnam. But the cave formations that you will be able to see in the underground river is the most complex in the whole wolrd.. according to the la venta group of scientists who explored the underground river.

With only 3 days I wouldnt base it around a 90 minute cave boat ride. A better use of time would be to fly in and out of Coron. We visited both this month and Coron has a lot more to offer IMO. Elnido is great too but you dont have time with 3 days
