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!
