We stayed here as a family of four. We booked at Room # 3 between July 18-22. We're so glad we took the advise of Ms. May (The Proprietor) who recommended we do the Malcapuya Beach on our first day because of good weather conditions. Though July is not the best month to go to Coron, we still were able to squeeze an average of 3 destination (beach, lagoon, wreck sites) for all three days.
She booked us for the following tours:
Skeleton Wreck (For SCUBA Encounter #1)
Coral Bay (For SCUBA Encounter #2)
Maquinit Hot Spring
We paid for each tour and entrance fee, separately.
We did the same when we went to Donsol, Sorsogon last year.
One of the key things to enjoying a pleasurable and worry-free trip is getting a great tour guide and a reliable boatman. We were introduced to Butchoy and Manong Ed aboard the Emmanuel (banca name) for the duration of our stay and were amazed at how wonderful, spectacular and astounding the Coron Islands are.
There is also the Amphibi-ko Sky Restaurant visible from the Pier Market and the Docking Area as a varnised brown building that has its own Ramen Bar giving a better tasting, piping hot ramen that will cool your pale heels from the trip and nourish you back for another.
The accommodations are basic and modest. Queen sized bed with options for extra bedding. Clean and hygienic bathrooms with hot showers. Cable TV for news and entertainment. Friendly and accomodating staff . Although electricity is scheduled from 10am-7pm, there are provisions for generator power for basic lighting and powering of smart devices.
Scheduling is really the key. Peak months are Jan-May. But that really didn't stop us from taking in the better sites. As first-timers, we were quite pleased and everything that was promised was made in confidence and was delivered to our satisfaction. There were a number of French, German, Australian and Korean family and adult groups were present as well as Filipinos. For a lean season it's pretty much well attended.
