My hubby and I stayed at Sophia's Garden Resort for 3 nights this March 2014. I would like to commend all the staff for making our stay a pleasant one. They are always very accommodating, warm, friendly and attentive. The property is not so big, resort only has 8 rooms but the garden is well kept and clean, pool is ok, and is a nice place to hang out during breakfast and dinner time. Beds and pillows are so comfortable, its so nice to sleep after a tiring day of island hopping and beach bumming.
The only concern is that the room walls are quite thin. We stayed at room 5, and unfortunately on our second night the family that stays beside us is quite loud. But Jeremy apologized to us for that and we told her that it was really not the resorts' fault. Also the cable signal is quite spotty, only a few channels available, but who needs a cable tv while you are on vacation anyway? I would also suggest to add a bit of variety to their menu, but then the food is quite ok. I love the breakfast that they serve on the garden or at the pool side, very relaxing. Wifi is ok, sometimes connection gets lost but overall its ok for checking Facebook and emails. They also charge a minimum of 50 pesos per person for their own van service if you would like a ride to the town proper ( Sophia's is around 5 minutes drive from Coron town proper or Sentro , as the locals call it) They also helped us arrange a boat for our 2 days exclusive island hopping tour ( we were not joined by other guests, we only paid for the boat)
Overall I would definitely recommend this resort to my friends and family who are staying in Coron. Priced a bit above average from the other hotels/ bb's around town but a relaxing stay is guaranteed. Thank you Sophia's!
PS. Malcapuya Island is so beautiful! One of the best beaches I have been to so far. A must visit in Coron. The boat ride is 2 hours though, waves a bit rough.
