The staff were the nicest people in the world. They all remembered your name and we’re very helpful. The Funny Lion has a nice rooftop bar with a beautiful sunset view and two jacuzzis. Great place to stay

Our stay was simply perfect. The hotel is amazing. The room is very comfortable and clean. The hotel facilities are also great. Breakfast is delicious. The pool is nice and beautiful. The roof top bar has a gorgeous view of the sunset and also offer 2 jacuzzis and happy hour promotion for cocktails and beers. The food is also very delicious! The staff was also a highlight of our stay. All of them have a impeccable service and are very kind. We asked them some recommendation for our 10-year anniversary and they prepared a romantic dinner at the roof top bar and it was simply amazing! The menu for the romantic dinner is simply DELICIOUS! Still about the staff, all of them were great, but I would like to leave a special thanks to the waiter Chris, he made our romantic dinner even more special treating us so kindly. To sum up: our stay was perfect and I highly recommend it!

Comfortable beds, friendly and helpful staff, reliable WiFi, good location, great bar to watch the sunset and enjoy happy hour. Aircon is a bit noisy but really cool. Recommended stay for couples, the breakfast is also just what you need

We came here for 1 night after a 5 day expedition through the islands in Palawan. It was a great place to relax in a bit with extremely friendly and accommodating staff. A great example of this is we would be lying around the pool and they would come and bring us water and continually top it up :)

Great hotel - would 100% recommend. Rooms were a great size and beds comfortable- complimentary juices each day in the mini bar. The pool was peaceful and a lovely place to relax. The staff were all incredibly helpful and were always on hand to assist with any trip/activities bookings. The rooftop bar was great for sunset and had lovely cocktails.

Enjoyed our stay here and would stay again. Very friendly staff and close to the town center. Staff was very attentive which allowed us to have a stress free visit. We enjoyed the restaurant and breakfast buffet. They have live music at the upstairs bar each night.

We first stayed at The Funny Lion Coron in 2015 and I'm happy to say that it's still as fantastic as I remember. For this trip, we were 3 adults sharing a Cub Room (2 twin beds + roll-out) but there was plenty of space for all of us. The bathroom lighting was a bit dim but the shower was spacious with great water pressure and plenty of hot water. The bath amenities - lemongrass-scented soaps, shampoo, body gel, toothbrushes, etc. - were kept stocked and the room was promptly cleaned at our request. We really enjoyed the daily breakfasts, especially the different Filipino/local offerings like smoked fish a rich hot chocolate drink made from local cacao. But a highlight was the rooftop bar with spectacular sunset views, a great 2-for-1 happy hour deal on cocktails and brick-oven pizzas (especially the 4-cheese with a small drizzle of locally sourced wild honey that really amps up the flavor). The hotel is a short drive to town via tricycle, which the front desk can arrange. They also make it very easy to arrange any land or boat tours, either private or joiners. But what makes a stay at Funny Lion truly remarkable is the amazing staff. There was no request made that they didn't put 100% effort into fulfilling, and they even took note of things casually mentioned. For instance, I told Cyrine, one of the restaurant staff, that I really enjoyed the crisp dried fish called 'danggit' during our last stay and she immediately offered to have it specially prepared for our breakfast the next day. And when we told F&B manager Ian that we loved the honey used on the pizzas, he offered to procure some for us. The staff at reception were also exceptional, particularly Kim and Jane who were outstanding with helping us with our daily excursions. In the restaurant, Cyrine, Jimuel, Meah, April and the egg station chef (whose name I didn't get!) as well as the rest were topnotch with their attentiveness. Chris and Boknoy mixed some fabulous sunset cocktails on the rooftop bar, and special thanks to Vince and Amiel who patiently waited with the transport van at the airport during our arrival when the airline put our bags on a later flight from Manila. Rest assured that staying at the Funny Lion will be one of the best parts about visiting Coron. We look forward to returning on our next trip to the island!
