Mt. Tapyas Hotel
Ranked #38 of 68 Coron B&B and Inns
Reviewed 31 March 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 3D/2N. Location is great - nice view, quiet place yet it is walking distance only from the noisy busy streets. I can not remember if staff greeted us "good morning" or so but they helped us each time we approached them. Rooms are a bit small but it's ok, you won't spend there your entire day anyway. I recommend this place for those who are in budget yet looking for comfort and convenience.

We had a mountain view room but no mountain to view just the side of the rocky mountain with trees and shrubs. The room is spacious, bathroom is small, mattresses and pillows are not comfortable to sleep. The mattress is a bit hard and the pillows are very thin. Bathroom shower is hard to control either you get a cold or very hot water. Aircon is noisy and it also gets broken twice on our stay. The hotel did not have a backup generator for we did not have aircon on the first night of our stay due to scheduled rotational brownout around Coron but the technician was able to repair the aircon quickly after it gets broken. The food is average, they have a large serving. Staffs are very accommodating and friendly, though at times they were not able to get the correct order for our food. The hotel location is far from the busy part of Coron so the place gets very quiet at night. Its hard to call a tricycle (only means of transportation in Coron) due to isolation of the place. The highlight of this hotel is their rooftop, has great view of Coron in sunset and sunrise.

Overall we had a decent stay in this hotel. We were provided all we need on our stay in this enchanting paradise.

We stayed at this hotel in December 2012. It’s a typical budget hotel hence don’t expect anything fancy or luxurious. The room we stayed at was a little spacious though the toilet was small. It had a sea view which was facing the road which can get a bit noisy and disturbing in the evening. It was somehow disappointing that WIFI was only available at the bar and they only had instant coffee for breakfast, nonetheless the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a good thing that this hotel was close to the city center and you can just have a good walk in the evening if you want to go to bars and restaurants.
If you are travelling on a budget and if you want a clean place to stay at then then this hotel is for you.

Great ocean view with a rooftop bar with an even better view. The rooms were very simple with a firm Mattress and a hot shower. There is wifi in the lobby only, but my 3G network worked great. The food was great for all three meals fresh fruit with rise and the meat of your choice. The location was perfect; it was only a short 5min walk to the downtown, I gave this hotel a 5star rating because of the staff. They were always open to new suggestions: food items, travel times, and great helpful tips of the island. The GM "Shannon" was very helpful and even let me use her personal labtop to send a very important email. This hotel is perfect for the first time traveler to Coron. This was an amazon place and I will be a repeat traveler in the near future.

So it's either you get a great view of Coron Town and the nearby Islands or a view of cashew trees and shrubs.Room need some repainting. Mattress was hard. Sheets were thin. Water heater is not working at all. And aircon is EXTREMELY NOISY as if you are sleeping right next to a highway. And yes, they don't change the sheets nor clean the room---so after a day of snorkeling and island hopping expect to go back in a hotel room the same way you left it.Three nights and they never bothered to make up the room. Staff seem to be having a hard time opening their mouth a bit to say "hello" and "good morning."

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. There was a small issue when I arrived at around 5pm that my room was not ready but no issue as I enjoyed a beer over looking the awesome sunset view from the balcony. I cant stress the view enough it is magic. Room was very pleasant by Philippine standard and had all that you need I had a mountain view room on the top floor. Happy hour was good prices at the bar.

The staff were nice and most could speak average english. There was a young girl working the front desk and she was very helpful and has excellent english. The staff at the bar even made sure there was cold red horse waiting for me.

I found breakfast ok if not a bit pricey and I has one dinner which was good.

Location is great as you are not in the load busy center and to walk down is maybe 5min and don't walk up you just get a trike for 10p.

The place also had a constant backup generator which not all do.

Price is a bit higher than other but I found it t be worth it. Rccomend.

We needed a place to stay just for one night after finishing a from El Nido to Coron. As it was only for one night this place was fine.
The room had power, a hot shower and toilet with a seat which was a big plus as we didn't see much of this during the rest of our trip! The hot water actually worked unlike other places we stayed in the Philippines where the 'hot water' was actually cold.. As others have said it is a little bit more out of the way than the places right in near the centre of town, but the hotel are happy to book a trike, hotel transfers etc. We only had to wait about 5 minutes once they booked the trike for us to town. There is also a security guard out the front at night which is another plus.
Overall, it is nothing amazing and I wouldn't stay here for an extended period of time, but just for a night or two it is clean and comfortable with a hot shower!
