“A hotel with a spanish feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

This is one if those hotels where you feel you're in a spanish era or a spanish hacienda.. I love even more the pool since you have options as to its depth, if im not mistaken they range from 5ft-7ft apart from the kid's pool.
Dont expect a picturesque sorrounding though since just outside the hotel is a residential area so you're view is pretty much blocked by rooftops.
Breakfast is veeeerrrry slow so you better order ahead before heading to the restaurant.
If you want a tour just tell the reception you want a customize and a private tour as this will save you a lot and you have the liberty to stay as much as you want in places you like. You only pay the boat and you buy your own food. (Entrance fees not included).
Pickup and airport tranfers are complimentary.

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very glad that we chose this hotel instead of Westown. Westown is a bit further from the town and the port, while Corto del Mar is walking distance to both.

What we like about this hotel:
- Location
- Ambiance, felt relax as we stepped in.
- Restaurant, they made very good pizza and pasta. I didn't expect much so that came as a surprise. Dining by the pool side was very nice.
- Friendly staff
- There were always Tricycles ready to take you anywhere outside the hotel.

What we dislike:
- Wifi rarely worked, Globe 3G worked in that area fortunately
- The town always had blackout, probably 4-5 times during our 2 nights stay. Not something the hotel can do about, they have generator to power the whole hotel. But in one occasion, the TV had no signal because of the power shortage?

We were given a room on the top floor, had a nice view towards the sea. The hotel is surrounded by small local houses, so it could get a bit noisy with people chit chat and cock's crow but that didn't bother us.

Very good and pleasant stay overall and will definitely recommend to anyone visiting Coron.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on top floor

Excellent location and the service was impeccable and always with a smile. Concierge organised all our tours and even organised an amended tour for our last day to incorporate our afternoon flight including a late check out to ensure we could take a shower and freshen up beforehand. Good food at the hotel restaurant and relaxing vibe meant a great stay there.

Conveniently located at the heart of Coron town proper. Very accommodating staff. I love the Mediterranean/Filipino fusion of their interior design. Don't expect a beach view because there's none. The pool is enough. Superb view. The room is clean & they're going green. They have a few rules to follow. Try their restaurant. It's not that expensive. They have organic stuff. Medium pizza is around 200-370 php & it's already good for 2-3 pax!!! Frutti Di Mare Pizza for the win. Prolly one of the best in Coron <3

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.

Room Tip: Low season June-December 31, 2014, Room 308 was fairly quiet and so was the aircon, water pressure i...

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.
