My son's Ipad was stolen the first day in a locked room. After heeding the hotel's management and owner's help, they sent us a letter insinuating my son didn't have an IPad instead of truly investigating. The Manager here is two faced, she will pretend they are doing everything in their power to help you find your stolen item. The Owner is worse, she doesn't even know us, she insinuated in her letter to us that they didn't feel my son had an Ipad. What kind of hotel management does this? BAN this hotel! Consider this a warning! There is a thief still not caught but they will blame their own hotel guests instead!

Dear Guests,

We deeply apologize for all the inconvenience. The IPAD was already found and surrendered to the owner thru the kindness of Mr. Carlo Iyog and Mr. Bryan Parsons our guests who checked out last January 20, 2014. Accordingly, the IPAD magnetic cover had attached in the Safety deposit box, almost invisible to see, and Mr. Parsons had just double checked the safe by use of a flashlight and found the sparkle of an apple logo. Mr. Parsons and Mr. Iyog had graciously sent the item thru Fedex delivery and directly to the owner considering the time, customs, payment as they are also from the same country for which the guests had already acknowledged to have received. We are deeply indebted to Mr. Parsons and Mr. Iyog for their kindness and generosity, specially, in this kind of situation that it proves too that we have not stolen an item.

Thank you for your kind understanding.

We remain, very truly yours,


Carmela Geisert

We stayed in a deluxe room, which is designed to look like a cottage in itself. The room was very spacious and very clean, and it had a nice slightly rustic feel to it. The bed comfortable enough, but I found a few ants on it.

The resort itself was great. The abundance of flora AND fauna in the resort, as well as the use of wood in decor were a great touch that really made you feel that you are in the beautiful island of Busuanga. The rooftop had an amazing view as well - perfect for taking photos of the sunset.

The service was also superb. They were very attentive and courteous, and they would often anticipate your needs. The food was great as well and not very expensive by resort standards.

Overall, I loved the place and would definitely stay here again next time I'm in Coron.

At first you will think its expensive but the manager is very kind and easy to talk to since we're a walk-in without agents etc. So i think it made it at a very reasonable cost but its not all, they are all really accomodative and flexible to your request as long as it is still possible and that made my stay very convenient and still relaxing, total is worth it and the view is really grand as you eat your breakfast/meal. Hope be able to come back again :)

We stayed for 2 nights on March 2013 at Asia Grand View and we enjoyed it so much, although its expensive but worth the rate. We paid P 5,000. / night with buffet breakfast.
1. Very clean - even the garden is maintained
2. Good food - there's complete selection in the buffet table during breakfast.The food is a
little bit expensive but good.
3. Friendly Staff - they even let me borrow knife to cut fruits we brought in our island hopping
4. Service is good - we always have a hot pot of tea and hot water for coffee in the room,
and assist us in getting our banca for the island tour. Upon our request, our room is
upgraded.
5. Nice view - their restaurant is facing the sea, so you will have a very nice sunrise and sunset
while dining.
6. Quiet location - although its a little bit not closer to the port, even the tricycle can reach the
hotel. Its just 10 mins away from the port,
7. Big Rooms - although lighting is dim, it has clean and nice bathroom
8. Nice pool

Here is your choice when you plan your island hopping ( a must ).

1. If you are three or four, better hire your own banca, they will assist you to get one but make sure its not old, this way you can manage your own island hopping. 2 days island hopping is reccommended so you would see all the islands, every island is nice and its abounding in fishes and corals. You can take out food from the hotel for your snacks and lunch. Bring your own spoon and fork, tissue, water, fruits, and lots of water in the banca and one bag to collect all your garbage.

2. Join a group - ask the hotel for assistance. Food is inclusive but limited. They will grill the fish or meat in the banca, prepare fresh salad, while you are busy swimming. Bring your own spoon and fork if you want, otherwise you will use your hands to eat.

All Islands are very nice, don't miss the Siete Picados, fishes here abounds even in the surface of the water.

Room Tip: just request for upgrade if you want. all their rooms are situated nicely. premier rooms are closer...

We stayed at Asia Grand View Hotel for 5 nights and 6 days. The place was so relaxing. The amenities were so great. We enjoyed singing in the videoke, we had fun playing billiards, and most of all we enjoyed the used of the pool as we swam there almost every nights.The staffs were very friendly and accommodating, They will assist you wholeheartedly. Great breakfast buffet, and they also offer a wide variety of foods on their menu. The rooms were so clean, huge and very comfortable. The hotel also provides a free WLAN internet access and the signal was great. We would definitely recommend this Hotels for it's quiet location. AGVH is also a good location to explore Coron Islands.Two thumbs up for AGVH we highly recommend this place! We would love to go back and stay at Asia Grand View Hotel.

I stayed at AGVH for 2 nights. I stayed here for some much needed rest and relaxation. I have to say, I got more than I expected. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. My room was HUGE and very comfortable. The place is quiet and peaceful. Being surrounded by lush fauna made me forget I'm just three minutes from town. The restaurant offers great tasting food in generous servings. The service that the people gave me here is top notch. I was planning to go to town to look for a spa/massage place but was impressed that they have a masseuse that can make house calls. I felt totally pampered during my stay. I left relaxed and completely rejuvenated. I definitely recommend this place!

just 3 mins away from town where the restos and souvenir places are. excellent service. friendly staff with special mention to the tryke driver who was very accomodating. Best place to have that relaxed sleep after a thrilling and fun-filled discovery of the wonders in Coron (Kayangan Lake, Mt. Tapyas, etc.) as it is away from the city noise. In this hotel, we feel pampered and well-taken cared of, best choice for honeymooners and family get-aways. :)

Hello, Ms. Beth Rosal,

Thank you for taking time to relay the details of your experience with us at Asia Grand View Hotel! We compliment also with other Island destinations in the area of Coron as we are near the town center, and as youve said, perfect stopover for guests who are coming and going from the different islands including from El Nido and Puerto Princesa.

I am glad that you had a wonderful visit. We hope that your family and friends will also visit us in the future!


best regards,



Ian
