Planning as to where we are going to stay for our 18th wedding anniversary was easy - CORTO DEL MAR ! And such convenience because we are almost "locals" in Coron (diving regularly), and perfection because being acknowledged as such, the reception staff gave us a Deluxe room for the price of a Standard room ... sweet, isn't it :-) Standard room rate was about Php4,800 with daily breakfasts. We stayed 3D-2N which amounted to almost Php12K + . Staff is great, courteous, very attentive and always serve with a smile. Most food choices on the menu taste great, except for some beef dishes that hubby ordered ... beef in this country can be a bit tough, so my takeaway in dining in the Philippines is to never order beef nor lamb dishes as they can be chewy and fatty. But anyway, that's really non-essential as far as our stay in Corto is concerned because we love the place ... it was actually "love at first sight" when we first came here in 2013. Five stars in all aspects - room, bathroom, facilities, amenities, staff, service, room. I hope it remains so forever.
