“One of Coron's best”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

You will find many accommodations in Coron that's accessible and cheaper but good thing we chose to stay at this place for 5 days/4 nights. We availed of the Courtyard Queen room on the first night and transferred to the Penthouse room for the rest of our stay. We could not have been any happier. For what it cost, it's worth it. Each room comes with complimentary breakfast which we look forward to every morning. Our fave were tocilog, tapsilog and pancake w/ bacon and egg. Both Courtyard Queen and Penthouse room has AC, fan (in case of blackout), hot and cold shower, and flat screen TV plus fridge and coffee making set on the Penthouse room. We especially liked the Penthouse room because it has it's own balcony and is on the roof deck area which has a good view of the sea, Mt. Tapyas and the town center. You can also eat on the roof deck area since it has tables and chairs. The bathroom was clean and well-maintained. Although the room was not that big, it's tastefully decorated and clean. The place also has an indoor garden which is refreshing compared to other hotels in the town proper which is kind of cluttered. You can also find artworks and native crafts everywhere inside the hotel which add to that "nature feel" interior. The staff were friendly and accommodating as well. When we arrived, they serve welcome drinks which we didn't expect considering that the place is not like a 5-star hotel or something. Also, this place is to everything. From the market, travel and tours offices, pasalubong centers, and port area. There's also a Zagu store right next to the entrance so whenever you get thirsty from all that island-hopping activity, you can just order your fave shake. And oh there's also WiFi which was fast during our stay. We're able to upload our photos right away when we got to the hotel. Over-all our stay here was stress-free, laidback and made our experience in Coron more fun. I totally recommend this place!

Room Tip: Choose the Penthouse room, it's like having a whole roof deck to yourselves! :-)

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days during our honeymoon. The place is located near the market and the reclamation park where most of the tour banca is stationed. Pharmacy is just 1min walk if in case you need some medicine. and nearby restaurants are just walking distance.

Service was good. Their receptionist were young and friendly. Maybe a little bit of training and getting used to different cultures would make them the best. I suggest they should know the concept of their hotel to answer some curiousity like mine. The hotel's concept was a bit of mexican, Filipino and probably Tagbanua (coron's natives) because of some native crafts displayed. I asked the receptionist but she didn't know.

Aircondition turns on and off. Once the room gets cooler it turns off for a while. They conserve energy since the entire town is dependent in generator.

Food is good. The hotel serve breakfast with more rice. Lol. Try their tocino and bangus meal. It's my favorite.

When my wife and I decided to comb Coron town proper for a decent place to stay for 1 night we found Balaibinda Lodge. It sits at just the right distance to the market and everything else in Coron town.

We liked the layout of the place as it allowed the rooms a view of the garden in the middle of the building. The vibe is fresh and airy. This lodge is colored white and is simple looking, but nonetheless it is clean and well-run.

Our room was decent. It had good airconditioning, TV, good showers. There was nothing to complain about. For the price we paid the hotel returned good value. Our room did not face the garden, but instead faced the street, but we did not hear the noise outside at any time during our stay.

The hotel's staff were accommodating. They called us in our room when breakfast was ready, and also watched over our bags at the lobby when we had to leave the hotel for some errands.

I like the location of the place. It is ideal for short walks to Corons' popular restaurants, the market and also the pier where all island tours take off from. Quite a good base for exploring islands day after day.

I would recommend Balaibinda anytime.

I've stayed at many place here. I have to say, this place was the best. There is attention to detail, and very nicely decorated. It is a calm place to come back to after a day of island hopping. The family who owns this place are such sweet people,and you can see that they know what they are doing. For the price they charge and what you get in return is very fair, unlike many other places in coron town, or actually most. The front desk staff are mediocre, but at least better than most places.

Room Tip: avoid street side

Clean and child friendly since i was travelling with my 2 girls i recommend this hotel very near to everything , resto, at the plaza, souvineer shops are just steps away from the hotel. Complimentary breakfast are included be sure to give your order during the night so that it will not cause you some delay any way i dont have that bad experience there, bed and pillows are soft and comfy, the bathroom work well, and most important the area are clean. Try to check out their penthouse since its in the rooftop i think more view to offer there. The food in this town specially at the resto for tourist who usually eat are a little bit pricey but orders are plenty and for share. you can also ask the hotel if they can prepare a food for you like dinner, and you just buy a fresh seafood in the market just step away from the hotel and let them cook for you just pay for cooking charge.
