The Funny Lion is simply the perfect resort for your trip in Coron. Rooms are big and clean. The swimming pools are amazing. Especially, those on the rooftop with the bubbles where you can have a cocktail in the afternoon after a trip. We really enjoyed our staying at the hotel. I have to mention that the breakfast is great and the restaurant also very good and reasonably priced. Only thing to improve is Internet connectivity in the rooms. The special thing of this hotel is the treatment by the employees. They are all fantastic. Momay, Bernard and Ian to mention a few people we met during our stay. They are all very nice and caring. Thank you so much folks!

When in Coron town, stay at The Funny Lion. Truly a service-oriented hotel. The staff are friendly, rooms are well-cleaned (& always smells nice after you come back from your island tours), food is good. The ambiance at the Pride View Deck is awesome.

Was pleasantly surprised by this resort! After confirming my booking, they reached out to me regarding airport transfers, and acceded to my request of shared transfers. We had an early flight and arrived around 8AM, and we were immediately offered us a wash up room with complete amenities. Appreciated the free refreshments! We went out for lunch and by the time we got back, our room was ready. The Pride Room is worth booking for the space. They gave us the best location also (next to the pool and the restaurant). Excellent customer service as they anticipated all our needs, and swiftly complied with our requests. Called reception to ask for a room spray because there was a funky smell in the room after it was cleaned and it was all good after. Reception provided us with towels each morning before we left for our island tours. As for the other amenities, really enjoyed the jacuzzi and the pool, as well as the sunset views from the Pride Rock Deck. Breakfast options were plentiful and superb! Our personal faves are the extra crispy bacon, danggit, tablea, and waffles. Liked that we could have eggs cooked however we wanted. Their coffee is noteworthy too. We also tried their buffet dinner and loved the cochinillo, tuna and other grilled fish. Had multiple servings of ice cream, too. Overall, great rooms and excellent service from Kim, Bernard, and the manager (wasn’t able to catch his name). Thank you so much for giving us a great stay. Highly recommended!

If your looking for a nice,clean quiet place to stay this is the one for you. The staff are awesome and friendly .The breakfast meal is great. You should try their pandesal and brioche and their homemade jams.Its a brunch menu you have lots of choices. Though wifi and globe network is a bit choppy...The pools area is a nice place to relax in the evening.Otherwise it's all great.

The customer service has been more than superb - from the time we set foot until we embarked for our journey back home. JB, the hotel manager, Kim, Bernard, Gabb, and the rest of the staff were more than accommodating, attending to each of our requests with urgency and care. Everything was excellent. The staff were very thoughtful about our drinks whilst at the poolside, offered help whenever we have a tour, towels were made ready for us too. The staff were very polite. Surprise drinks were found inside the refrigerator, too. Thank you, Funny Lion, was indeed fun, more than fun in fact. See you again, soon. RJ and Lloyd.

Stayed at The Funny Lion for 1 night. Place was truly amazing. Rooms (Pride room) are big enough for two pax. They value customer service and amenities especially the jacuzzi was relaxing since it is located at the roof deck with a view of the sunset. Things to note: 1. They are bit far from the town proper 2. There is no signal for globe users. They do have wifi but connection is a little bit slow
