We recently had the pleasure of staying here for 5 nights and had a great experience. Chindonan feels more like you are staying at a friend's lovely sea-side cottage than any sort of generic hotel. The owners and the staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the nightly dinner was nothing short of amazing. I mean, they even packed us a lunch when we left to go to the airport - what hotel would do that?
You're probably coming to Coron for scuba diving, and Chindonan won't disappoint. It doesn't have a dive center, but they have worked out an arrangement with Sangat Island (10 minutes away by boat) so that it is very easy to get your dives in. The best part about the location is that it is right by all of the wrecks, which take an hour to get to on a bangka if you are staying near Coron town. They organize some good activities for non-divers as well, from island-hopping day trips to snorkeling (you can even snorkel a small gunboat wreck just a few minutes away).
Keep in mind that like other resorts in the area, there is no A/C, and power is limited throughout the day (it cuts out at 6:30, early mornings for all). But that is more of a function of coming to the area - if you want a big beach resort with A/C then Coron is probably not for you, anyway.
We look forward to returning to Chindonan when we make it back to Coron-
