“Time of our lives in paradise”
Reviewed 30 April 2011

simply fabulos rooms, coralreefs, the food was amazing every night, with different fish, rockloobsters and many other kinds of fish, the other dishes was amazing, the staff was always smiling and ready to help. The owners was incredible to make you feel speciel, and told us about everything that we could see and experiense.
The rooms was big and always clean, and had a fantastic veiw from the terrace
My wife and i came home efter 9 days in paradise, and we will be going back for more soon.
The water was drinkable and totally clean.
My wife had a meeting with a big spider, not poison, but pretty fast running away

Room Tip: Al the rooms are great

Stayed here from 25th feb thru 1st March and I have to say that the location is simply great. The staff is super friendly and they will take really good care as far as your breakfast and dinner needs go. The food tastes delicious and since i was a solo traveller I use to end up having dinner with the owners. They were really helpful when it came to planning my day trips.
The rooms are simple. If you are looking for some lavish resort with jacuzzi etc then this is not the place for you. I use to tell the owners to advertise the resort as "Eco" resort. They have natural spring water which is very rare on these small islands in philippines.

With the help of the owners i was able to plans day trip to go on different islands and do snorkeling. The resort is centrally located and all the great dive and snorkeling spots are very close by. If you want to relax and enjoy then this is your place. Oh and don't forget to dive in the house reef and ask Pierre to show you some cool sea horses.

A little hard to find making it the Philippine's best kept secret. Wonderful hospitality, minimum of guests, beautiful food everyday, dinner over the sea, privacy, cleanliness, a wonderful snorkelable house reef unspoilt and protected by the owners, and clean fresh water (a total scarcity in these parts). Divers paradise, with the reefs and WW2 wrecks just nearby. If it's glass, high-rise and swimming pool you're after, don't bother. If it's a healthy, comfortable, clean and friendly place to relax, download from a days (awesome) diving and prepare for the next day, look no further. Sangat (source of the major dive equip- new and well run/maintained) is a speedboat away.
Stop looking and trying to sift through all the options for this area and just get onto PERE, PERE and LONA via their Chindonan website.
For adventurers, lovers and adventurous lovers.

We stayed for 6 days in this wonderful Resort. And we could easily have spend 1 week more. The life under water is FANTASTIC. Have seen so many funny fish and colorful corals. And after a day spending in the water, is was GREAT to sit in the cosy bar, just relaxing and/or have fun with thw owners and staff. They are all so kind and friendly. The food was excellent. Fish, meat, rice, soups, homemade bread etc. etc.
After a "busy" day under water and hanging around, is was nice to have a good night sleep in big clean rooms. And in the morning when the birds "have waked you up", it was so wonderful to sit in front of the room/house... just enjoying the great view.
WE WILL BE BACK....

What a lovely place!!! It was everything I could imagine and more – from the gracious hospitality of the owners (Lona, Per x 2), the wonderfully pleasant and cheerful staff, the amazingly delicious foods from the spunky little chef, Aquila and the spaciously clean, comfortable, yet simple accommodations with a fantastic view – I DIDN’T WANT TO LEAVE!!!

Best place to recharge from a hectic life and just enjoy the nature and beauty of the Calamian Islands. Only spent three days, and wished we stayed longer.....definitely lots more to see ! Lona was fantastic at suggesting/planning daily itineraries, but she also left plenty of time to relax and enjoy the island as well.

Thank you Lona, Per x 2 and Chindonan staff for giving me an unforgettable and memorable experience !

A very intimate and beautiful resort in a private and quiet location approximately one hour by boat from Coron. Highly recommendable for people who like nature and a peaceful environment. The owners and the staff are most helpful and very friendly. The food is delicious. The milk shakes are super. Thank you Per for showing me the sea horses just five meter out from the pier. If you look for TV and karaoke look elsewhere. But if you want to be close to nature you have come to the right place.
Excellent diving nearby, both reefs and wrecks.

It was a very pleasant surprise. From the moment we were met at the post in Busuanga till the day we left. We were treated with such warmth and hospitality that had a personal touch. This is not what I had expected, it was far better. If you want a place like the Shangrilah resort, then this is not the place. It you want to relax, and just get away from it all. Then Chindonan is the place. I came for the diving, which did not disappoint. The strategic location of the island to a majority of the major wrecks is perfect. The dive center is in partership with Sangat island's dive center. The ease of accomodating me needs and those of my dive party made things seem effortless. I was only able to dive on 3 of the wrecks. Which means I will be making it back to Chindonan to for a longer stay the next time around. The owners and staff are the best at taking care of their guests. The resort keeps things relaxed and personal, no glits and glamour, just the blessings of nature all around you. The phrase " I've died and gone to heaven" comes to mind. The bay fronting the resort is one of the few places one can spot: sea horses. The house reef is perfect, and a great place for a morning swim.
Don't change a thing, I like it the way it is,
