“Great location and facilities”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

The hotel is conveniently located in the center of the town. Rooms are spacious and clean. I love the dainty feel of the hotel. Staffs are friendly and hospitable. They also helped us arrange our tour via a travel agent so it was stress free for us. Their restaurant also offers wide range of food and drinks. One downside though, internet connection is a bit slow and wifi signal is weak.

If you're looking for a place that's comfortable, clean, and very beautiful, Corto del Mar is the place for you! My family and I stayed in the hotel for 4 days and we were taken care of by their lovely staff. There is a free airport shuttle going to their hotel and we were given welcome drinks when we arrived. The first thing that caught me was their swimming pool that looks very inviting when you see it. Their wooden furnitures and sculptures are also very beautiful. According to their staff, the hotel was designed by a French architect and it really looked amazing. Our standard room was spacious for three people. It was also clean and the bathroom was okay too!

On our first night, we tried their famous pizza and it was very good! Medium sized four cheese pizza was enough for the 3 of us. We also ordered Kilawing Tanigue that was also very tasteful. One of the best I've ever tasted! Food was amazing and is definitely a must try!

Their staff is courteous and friendly. Very accommodating too. They don't have a guard because they told us that in Coron, crime rate is very low. Well for me, Coron has the friendliest and nicest locals I've ever met.

If you're not very much on a budget, Corto del Mar is the place to be - for couples, families, and individuals traveling to the beautiful island. Will definitely recommend the place to my friends!

The service that this hotel offers its guests is definitely first class. The staff members, from the front desk to the maintenance, are well-trained and I dare say genuine in their desire to assist guests. But I specifically commend its front desk officers. They were very accomodating and efficient. One of them, whose name is Ross even shared, voluntarily if I may add, her personal wifi when I mentioned that the hotel's wifi was not working.
True to the past reviews in this site, the only problem that I think this hotel has is the wifi connection. The lack of a refrigerator is not that big of a deal since the restaurant staff were more than willing to assist and more so if you spend the whole day on tours. One thing I noted though is that the hotel can do more in terms of the toiletries. But still, considering that Coron is not yet that progressive, Corto del Mar is a gem of a hotel. It's clean. The pool, especially the heated pool, is noteworthy. The food is ok. Above all else, the service is great.

The wood used all-over this hotel is authentic! One staff told us those were even imported from Spain that's why the hotel took quite some time to be finished. Very very beautiful flooring, furniture, wall arts and deco. I love the over-all design! The rooms are spacious. The breakfast is great also. Their mango and honey jam is to die for! =) The location is near the port and you can take the tricycle to go wherever you want. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.

The best hotel in Coron town, close to everything. However it is essentially surrounded by light material housing aka shantytown or slum? What a contrast!
To see the splendid view of the sea and hills of the nearby islands, you gaze beyond the rusty patchwork zinc roof.
The compound has thick and high walls - and no gate - another contrast.
The rooms are the nicest by far- none have fridge, kettle - plus the bathroom is lovely- with soap provided only. Even the humblest pension provides a little more by way of shampoo or toothpaste packets. Another contrast.
Internet even in reception area is so weak - anyway, the people standing outside the walls can smile at you another mix.
Food is alright however there are very few tables in al fresco bar area - all this by poolside.
Tasteful period style heavy furniture in dining area which contrast with numerous plastiv deck chairs- another contrast. Surely they could have teak loungers, poolside tables and chairs with umbrellas?
It is very comfortable, well situated place. It feels like you've arrived somewhere special and then again I felt "not really".
Free transfer to airport - great service, no contrast!
And I heard that this hotel's owner helped repair many of the zinc housing after Yolanda typhoon.
Now that's a great service to their neighbours!
Excellent service throughout - that's the best I can say.
Largest pool in Coron town, kept clean.
I suggest flagstone path from building to pool, from changing rooms as well so one doesn't carry grass into the pool. Hard to help pool clean!

Like most of Philippines, needs a serious policy ogainst smoking. Cigar smell wafting through aircon system from room to room? Cigar smoking in al fresco dining area - by inconsiderate expats!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with sea view if you like.
