I had a pretty pleasant stay here! The staff really went out of their way to make sure we felt welcomed and comfortable! Our last night was my bf’s birthday, I wanted to surprise him with a cake and balloons. Most 4-5 star hotels have complimentary cakes and can decorate the room for you but I didn’t expect the service and help I got from the hotel staff. They helped me plan everything! they contacted a baker in the island, helped me place and order and had the cake delivered to our room. The staff also decorated the room with balloon and happy birthday signs on the wall. They did this free of charged, I only had to pay for the cake. They waited until we returned from our tour that night. One staff ran to the room and lit the candles while we were just a few minutes behind. My bf and I were actually quite surprised! It was so thoughtful of them, they really went above and beyond. They were all sooo incredibly nice and accommodating during our whole stay! They really made this place better!

We stayed at the Vela Terraces for our first time in Coron. The hotel staff are friendly and very helpful. The breakfast is a must is very good value. The only thing that lets this hotel down is the steps up to the top rooms, but the rooms themselves are clean and very well maintained. I would 100% stay at this hotel again!

Vela Terrace was a great location for our stay in Coron. AC was great, service was awesome (Also big shout out to Vincent for his excellent service every time we were dining at Manggis Restaurant), and food tasted amazing. Would book with them again.

We stayed for 4 nights. It’s a pretty little hotel in a nice quiet location about a 10 min walk from the town. Walking into town we saw many hotels and thought we picked the best one for our budget. The staff were all very friendly. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. I recommend bring a travel pillow though. The room has aircon. Everyone is given portable WiFi with a data cap. This seemed to work ok and we didn’t run out of data. There is a tv, though the picture image was grainy. There is a small swimming pool, you can take a dip to cool off though one stroke and you will hit the side. Unfortunately the pool does not get the sun, so very cold and can’t lie by the pool. There isn’t much to see in the town. We had to pay everything in cash at hotel and in town. There are ATMs in town. There is no safe in the room. We went on one excursion with 3 stops. One sunken Japanese gun boat, one coral garden and pass island. The best food we have had in the Philippines was on this trip cooked by the guides on the boat. If only we could find street food like this in the markets. We hired the boat just for ourselves for just a little extra money rather than doing group tour. The overall travel time on the boat felt like a couple of hours each way. Pass island was beautiful though we only stayed there for about 90 mins before heading back to Coron. It would have been nice to spend longer there to relax. The journey home on the boat felt like torture as they drove so fast water continuously sprayed on us. I recommend bring a poncho. We struggled to find food we liked everywhere in Philippines. A lot of people recommended the food at the funny lion. We went there one evening and it’s a beautiful hotel with nice vibe but the food was average at best and felt over priced considering what we could get for same price in UK. If you have midnight craving there is a 24hr McDonald’s a 5 min walk away.

I had booked this hotel for my trip with my family with nearly 2 months in advance. To my surprise, this hotel cancelled my booking (my assumption is they had overbooking) leaving me without accommodation in Coron only 7 days before going there and being high season, with very little chances to find anything decent I wrote to the hotel a few times to confirm the booking as requested and then the hotel mentioned (on a weekend) that they requested now 50% as deposit to keep the booking. As I was away in Davao for the weekend I saw this on Monday, to my surprise they had cancelled my booking leaving me again, without accommodation in a strange place. Very unreliable, and poor management of bookings which have bad consequences for their guests I am still waiting for a response from them.
