Very friendly and helpful staff. 24/7 service. Complimentary refreshments in the mini bar and free water all day long. Clean and nice rooms with everything you need. Only minor thing is that the evening menu could have had a bigger variety of food to choose from, however, the breakfast buffet was really good. Roof top deck has a stunning view...

This hotel is offering you much more than just overnight stay and welcomes you with open arms! When checking in you are served refreshing lemongrass drinks, when you enter your room you are surprised by small complimentary gifts. You find flip flops to use in your room and hotel employees bring you ice cold water when you sit at the...

Great boutique hotel on Coron. Apx 30 minute van ride from USU airport. Small hotel boasts friendly staff. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Delicious buffet breakfast included several dishes, fresh fruit, great service. We enjoyed relaxing therapeutic massages and a couple of excursions.. only complaint would be that the air conditioning unit would go off.

I was very surprised - after a 30 minute drive from the airport I was greeted with a smiling face and a nice cool drink and shown to my room which as overlooking the pool. The roof top bar was also a welcome relief with happy hour and a view over the surroundings. Sunset was brilliant. Highly recommended.

Funny Lion has been exceptionally warm and accommodating to us (my family) and our love for adventure. Everytime we leave the hotel, they always pack us towels and bottles of water for us to bring before we go. They even provided us packed breakfast when they learned of our plan to leave for a tour early in the morning!

We will go back to this place for sure. Food is great especially if you come on the weekend with Saturday night barbecue and live local musician. Internet is not that great but sometimes its a blessing so you can catch up with some paper book or just relax on their awesome pool.

Stayed here with a friend in March. We immediately fell in love with the property. The nightly rate is a little pricey by Philippines standards but well worth it. The beds were so comfortable and we loved having cocktails on the pride deck every evening. They also bring delicious little goodies every night with their turn down service. The rooms...

The Funny Lion is a lovely boutique hotel. The room was extremely comfortable. The bed was huge and fantastic to sleep in. The pool area was also great with a very nice infinity pool and sunbathing area although sometimes not enough shade. The rooftop bar was a highlight. It was the perfect place to watch the sunset and the happy...
