I had to stay here as everything else in this segment was fully booked. I will keep it short: + Even though other reviews disagree, I like the location as it is not too busy around the hotel but you are in proximity of the centre + Solid Hotel with mediterranean architecture. + Spacious rooms - Wifi is not working in the rooms and mobile internet reception is bad (you are basically stuck in the 90s) - Only 9 sunbeds for all guests - Staff seems to be unmotivated (probably bad management here) - Design details (all chairs are somehow uncomfortable and very heavy, big sign of things that are prohibited at the pool, the bathroom is not well thought out etc.) - Blowdryer only only on request - the safe is not fixed and too small

Upon waking up, there was a huge cockroach crawling in the bathroom. I mentioned to the staff at the front desk, who said “is it still there?” And then “ok”. The staff member wasn’t surprised and offered no apology. Seems this is potentially a common occurrence for them, and they are not willing to invest in new drain covers, insect treatments, etc to prevent- like any other 4* hotel would do. I’ve done extensive travel across Southeast Asia, and while I have seen roaches in hotel rooms, never have I seen one in a room where I paid more than $50USD for. Paying $130 for a room where roaches are acceptable is just crazy. This is a vastly overpriced hotel and definitely not worthy of your stay.

I didn’t really take any photos for this review, I think mainly because I wasn’t particularly impressed by this hotel. Corto Del Mar is a Spanish style hotel, well located in the centre of Coron town, with a beautiful pool comprising the centre core of this building. So what was the issue? Well, I can say that the hotel room looks very tired, from up close. The grouting of the bathroom tiles looks aged and dirty. The towels are stained and not as fluffy anymore, definitely needing replacement. The pillows not comfortable at all, and specifically in our room the shower mixer was not working (the staff tried to fix it three times, but the water was either cold or boiling hot). Other than the lack of maintenance issues, the food in our opinion was mediocre, which also applies to

We loved this hotel in Coron! We ended up extending our stay in here instead of visiting Bohol. The pool area was great but limited seating. Standard room was great, no major complaints. However, we needed to ask for more pillows and the phone didn't work so we were slightly inconvenienced but nothing major. Overall, a really nice spot if you're looking for a 4 star in Coron.

This place has it all but if I had to choose one reason why you should stay here it is because of location . I looked at many places before I booked this place ,after I arrived I looked at some of the other nicer hotels I was looking at . Most were too far out of town , trust me this is not a place you want to take a long walk . Walking in the town proper is great but many of the very nice hotels are too far from the shops and restaurants. Some of the other nice hotels are on the busy streets , the noisy is nice when you are part of the hustle and bustle . When I go to bed I want peace and quiet , this hotel is three short blocks from the action , four blocks from the docks your dive shop will use , three blocks from banks , post office , fire station . It is on a dead end
