Almost good but baggage mishandled
Service is not that good, our luggage was taken by another boat and we were left behind. The manager was not very helpful.

I'm going to take the time to write a full review here, so if you really want to know about this property read on. The good: This was a beautiful resort and a wonderful place to stay. It was secluded, quiet, beautiful location and lots of facilities. The staff were wonderful, they looked after everyone so well, and just put everything they had. Not to mention the boat ride to up the river was really special. However... All the auxiliary prices are REALLY expensive. Given the price of the rooms, to get a bus to Coron, and the boat, transport only was 5500PHP for one person. Or 9000 if I wanted to do it with a tour. This is ludicrous and the biggest disappointment for me, was that this actually inhibited me from doing many of the things I actually went to Coron to see. This really upset me as the pricing was so prohibitive that it meant I wasted my trip. Which is a real shame. It kind of took the edge of the whole holiday. Keep this in mind when booking, because it really affects the rating I gave this place and could really affect your holiday.
