Be forewarned.
Let me give everyone overall warning. This hotel is 1.5 hours from coron. It's very isolated and very very overpriced. There is only one restaurant and that's all the choices anyone has when staying here. I spent more money here in 4 days than the rest of my two weeks jumping all over Asia. I don't mind paying if the price is double in this case it can be as much as 6 to 8 times what it would cost normally. So be forewarned. The staff does provide excellent service. I did complain to someone on staff several times that their prices are way overpriced. Staff said they will look into it but nothing happened. It will cost an eve rage of 400 dollars to 500 us a day. Heard a bunch of the other guests at the hotel complaining but we had no choice.

isolated , pricey
the place is isolated. you need a 20 minute banca ride plus another 20 minute van ride thru bumpy trails for airport transfers and to get to town. for this, you have to pay P1500- per person, per roundtrip. the buffet food is 500 for breakfast, 700 for lunch and 900 for dinner, but the selection and the taste is not that great. the native cabana where we were billeted was dark. the bathroom, so-so. we paid for a "casa" which was the most expensive cottage, but they erroneously placed us at the native cabana which was a so-so. however, they refunded us for their error. nothing to do at night.. the staff, however, were friendly and eager to serve. will think twice, thrice, before going back to this place. every move has an unreasonable pricey charge.

Sweet & Bitter
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. http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g729733-d1085145-r322289919-El_Rio_y_Mar_Resort-Coron_Palawan_Island_Palawan_Province_Mimaropa.html#
