“Peaceful resort with accommodating staff!”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 via mobile

Its relaxing to stay in this resort and being in one with the nature. The staffs are friendly and they attend to your orders and need. The transportation going to Coron is not a problem since they provide early morning transpo since all the trips are in the morning. The breakfast wasn't much since their only few guest and the choices are not much too! I wish they can renovate their rooms to attract more guest in the future. The only thing I hate in general in Coron is you need to wake up early for the tours. I would still prefer a beach resort and lounge there all day. But nevertheless, Coron is a must to visit and stay at BIP.

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights.
We stayed in Manila and then came to this place.
We were so happy to be surrounded by trees. We enjoyed swimming in a clean swimming pool, having drinks in poolside or at the restaurant, using wi-fi at restaurant or sometimes in the room.

Good: 1. great location in the forest and their compound is clean. I saw some hotels on the way to Coron town on the streets. Maybe closer to town but no green. There is a hill behind hotel where you can have a panorama view. (10min walk on steps) Also there is a forest path where you can go hike. Lots of birds singing and it is very quiet. No motorbike sounds at all. 2. Staffs speak good English and try to help you. They seem to know your schedule and they are attentive. 3. Close enough to town to head for beach trips. 4. Big bathroom in each Casita. Hot water was always available. (not luke-warm, very warm) 5. They will only accept max 60 people. It is not a huge place. When we were there, probably 5 or 6 families/couples. Very quiet.

Not so good: 1. Restaurant was not a high light. Although they have variety of food both Philippino and Western. Breakfast was rather simple. Buffet with hot coffee, toast, serial, one kind of fruit (different every day) , garlic rice, stir-fried vegetable... eggs are cooked on your request. Still open-air restaurant was a nice and we ate all meals besides those we had at beaches.

I think you can spend a very eco-friendly but convenient (air-con, a little slow but wi-fi, cable TV, hot water) life there. Not a 5-star hotel but good value for money. We felt very lucky that we found this hotel. So convenient to visit beautiful beaches from Coron town. I highly recommend this place and we probably go back again soon.

Room Tip: Casita 5 has a wi-fi router. La vista (2 beds+1 bed at loft, connecting rooms) for family, La vist...

This was my 2nd visit to Busuanga Island Paradise (BIP).

My first visit was in October last year, and you can read my review dated 5th November 2012.

There is really not much more to my first review that i can add in terms of the glowing report i gave it, but therein lies the best advertisment for the place.
The fact that i went back a 2nd time, only 4 months between visits !
The ambience, serenity, location etc all make it the MOST ideal place to visit if you are looking for a peaceful, quiet, and beautiful spot to relax and enjoy life for a while.
Particularly so for couples !
The ABSOLUTE most memorable part of my 2 stays here have been the staff.
They are ALL quiet, gentle, humble people, who genuinely care for ALL their guests, and they have treated me on both occasions like a king !!
There is nothing they won't do for you, and nothing is too much trouble for them.
If there is a question you have, or something you need, all you need do is speak to any one of them, and they will look after you.
The staff at BIP are always smiling and happy, and will always greet you with a wave and a smile.
(a genuine smile, not the fake kind of smile you get at most other resorts/hotels)
At BIP, you are treated like a very important family member, not a number like at other places.
This kind of vibe is evident the minute you step foot into the place.
I intend going back to BIP as often as i can.
The one thing different that i did do this time around was that i hired a motor bike for the week that i was there.
To see the whole island, a motor bike is the only way to go, and they are really cheap.
I hadn't ridden a motor bike in 30 years, but on day 2 of having the bike, i set out on a massive trip around the whole entire island, which took me 8 hours.
This included stopping at several of the stores in the "Barangay's" (villages) for a cold drink and a smoke.
There is simply no other/better way to see as much of the island than by bike.
I hired my bike from Boyet in Coron Town, and his rates were really good.
Less than $100 for the entire week !
The van driver from BIP will drop you off there.
Boyet has been in operation for 17 years in Coron, and has the best reputation on the island for renting out bikes.
I cannot recommend Busuanga Island Paradise highly enough, and i am quite sure you will be glad you chose it as your place to stay while in Coron.
To all the staff at BIP, "Maraming Salamat". (thank you very much)
Can't wait to get back there !!!!

The resort is nestled in the mountain area of busuanga but only 30 minutes from the airport. What made the location beautifully natural were the white egrets and herons that would be there in the morning milling about in the grounds and there is a river than ran through the property. And with the constant sound of flowing water surrounding you, it was so spa-ish and Ashtangga yoga relaxing. My family of 25 adults and children booked the resort for 3 nights and had the resort pretty much all to ourselves. The owner was also there so I guess we were lucky.

Accommodations were simple and basic but were comfortable and made all in natural materials to fit in with the forest surroundings. The cluster of rooms side by side looked like the accommodations while on a safari trip in africa. Cable TV in the rooms in flat screen tvs mounted on walls, mini bar and refrigerator, airconditon and ceiling fans for european travelers and a spacious bathroom with biodegradable amenities. I liked the rooms clustered together as it has a loft for sharing room with 3 other people.

The complimentary wifi is in the restaurant area which was also decorated and furnished with appropriate natural decor that was simple but cohesive. the food was buffet since we were a group and with the owner there, it was always delicious and replenished all the time. the gift shop had all sorts of handicrafts and gift items/jewelry from palawan and banaue and was reasonably priced which was great. the pool area was big and with a small dipping pool for kids and a bar for cocktails was where we as a family group hung out often as well as the restaurant.

The staff organized, set up, prepared anything and everything we wanted at the resort and in the tours that we did. With a smile plastered on their faces. the best was when they organized the island hopping day and our lunch was on the reyes' private island which had a pristine white beach and quality of sand was so far the only one i have come across in the country seriously comparable to Boracay's white beach.

Everything is ok except that the staff at their restaurant arent aware of what's in their menu. We ordered the same dishes on two consecutive days but surprisingly they gave different set of food and they are arguing right in front of me when I asked them about the food. Jacuzzi is not working anymore according to them that's why it's a bit disappointing especially when you want to relax after a tiring day of tours.

Room Tip: This is a bit far from the town and airport but very relaxing if you want a quiet and decent place t...
