I normally don't bother writing reviews on here but after reading some of the comments below i feel it necessary !

I don't know if any of the people who have written some of the reviews below realise this, but Palawan/Coron is known as the 'last frontier' which means this is not the place to go for pedicures, fine champagne and 'soft/expensive' toilet roll. If this is what you are looking for STAY AWAY!

However, if, like me you relish going to parts of the world that are uncommercialized, beautiful and a little ruff around the edges, then Coron is definitely somewhere you should go. I have visited Coron 3 times now and by far one of my favourite places to stay here is Kokosnuss, where stopped 2 months ago. I normally stop at Pat & Tezz's guesthouse which is so cool but they were full, so tried Kokosnuss which was a little more expensive but well worth it. There was still a little damage from the terrible typhoons they had endured but this did not detract from the beauty of the place and the mellow atmosphere. The staff are great and so eager to please, the food was a lot nicer than most places in Coron and the accommodation is cosy and comfortable. Yes we had a few blackouts while i was there but so did all of Coron, and you know what, I think that adds a little bit more to the whole adventure of getting off the well beaten track !
And as for gheckos in your room making themselves 'audibly known every night' OMG, this is Asia gods sake, either grow some or stop at Club Med !!!

This place has improved a lot since my first stay 2 years ago.
Well worth a visit, please ignore all previous negative reviews. I certainly give this place thumbs up, set in a pleasant surrounding of trees and greenery. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

With regard to the comment about no television, power outages and darkness. This is Coron, this is whats is expected of rural island life and this is what draws people to these locations. If you want power, TV and lighting then avoid places like Coron. I can confirm that this resort does have a back up generator unlike many other places in Coron.

You should also remember to pack a torch, its second nature when travelling. Transport 20mins late, come on are you having a laugh, that was early by Philippine standards! You were lucky if you flight was not cancelled as that happens regularly in the Philippines.

This is a great peaceful resort that offers good value for money. I will definitely return next year.

Accessible to the town. Staff are friendly and helpful in terms of tour arrangement. Sad that this resort was damaged by typhoon Haiyan. The good thing is- it is near to everything. Large garden and fountain and well-lighted at night.

We stayed here 4 nights as a family in one room (room 4) and it was great. We got a nice warm welcome and a drink upon arrival. The gardens are beautiful and the swimming pool was a bonus to keep us cool.

Thankfully the room was available before midday which is unusual but welcomed. The room was very spacious with a large double and 2 twin beds for the kids. Comfortable mattress and good pillows. Towels were very clean. The bathroom is massive too. Good air on plus a fan to aid sleeping.
The staff were so friendly every time we went to speak to them. We ate breakfast once and it was tasty and filling to set us up for an all day boat trip.
Only 20 pesos per person in to town via Tuk Tuk. You can walk in to town but just have to keep your wits about you, walking on the side of the road. You can also easily walk to the Mt Tapyas view deck, which is well with the exertion in the heat. If we ever came back here I’d have no hesitation in starting her again.

This was our 2nd time staying at KokosNuss. The previous time was back in March, and we stayed 21 nights that time.
This time we stayed 18 nights.
Can't speak highly enough of the staff and the food.
We were even invited to, and took part in, the staff Xmas party !!
Such a fun night.
We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

This is a really nice place. The layout and landscaped garden is very pleasant and induces a sense of calm and relaxation. And the food and drink is great. But the best thing of all is the staff. Simply wonderful people - all of them. Some of the nicest folk you'll meet.
Oh and by the way - do ignore any comments on here about the place being full of bugs etc. It's not. There are no more here than anywhere else in the rural tropics (and less than in many other places I've visited). A certain amount of insect activity is par for the course in these parts and if you can't hack it - don't come!

The resort was a german owned property.
Stayed in the cave room for 2 nights. it was not exactly of what I expected but it is still ok. It is an improvised cave. The room was clean though.

You can ask for the grill machine, they will prepare you just need to buy the charcoal and they will lit it for you.

The room have:
2 small single bed
TV that is not working
2 bath towel
1 body soap
1 toilet paper
Hot shower (you just need to wait several minutes before it gets hot)
Centipede once in a while
Always close the door because the mosquito will go inside

I eat once for the breakfast but it was horrible.
I ordered pancake and it was not cook inside. You feel the flour really.
I ask to cook again and it was burned outside and still not cook inside.
Expensive and not satisfactory.

The garden had a small pool but they can do better with the designs.

They arrange airport transfer (150Php / person)

tricycle from the resort to nearby town is 10 Php only. Others can tell you the double price so beware.

Responded Sep 15, 2016
Dear Miss, Good day! first we really don't reply but you are too much!!! You never eat in our restaurant you always buy food in outside and asked to preheat in our restaurant and Yes we help you to cooked your food use our kitchen utensil for free cleaned your mess for free and No thank you! . Pancake is cooked already its very thin its look like that coz there is no preservative added you don't know anyway...but you are so special " maarte" a typical Filipina with foreign boy friend. It seems that you always have a bad review everywhere so you should stay in your home don't travel and next time if your standard is very high you stay in 5 star Hotel and eat in very expensive restaurant. And again you stay in a place with a big tress, flower, grass so its Normal that there is a mosquito para ka namang hindi taga Pilipinas. Centipede, tv not working why you don't complain while you are here when we asked you your answer is everything is Okey!. Again YOU NEVER EAT IN OUR RESTAURANT HOW COME You Can SAY ABOUT THIS. "You can stay but don't eat on their restaurant.." . KokosNuss Family

Kokosnuss is nothing short of a complete catastrophe. Upon our arrival we asked the staff to repair the broken shower in the room, but the repair was never done. After one night we discovered the ceiling leaked water all over, ruining some of our belongings. We then requested to change rooms, but the second room we were offered had obviously not been cleaned for several weeks (or months) and the bed was covered with old and fresh lizard droppings and other excrement (see photo. There was no sink in the bathroom. The “garden” became a lake with the rain with water literally several inches deep, meaning that it was impossible to leave or enter the room without having to cross this lake. When offered the choice to move to a third room, we chose to leave and forfeit our remaining pre-paid 5-day reservation rather than spend one more minute in this miserable dump. Upon arrival we were the only guests, but another family arriving subsequent to us also departed abruptly after only one night. The oft-mentioned excuse of super typhoon “Yolanda”, which passed over eight months ago, does not convince. We changed to another nearby Korean-owned hotel which suffered the same fate as every other resort on the island and now it is immaculate with no signs anywhere of any typhoon damage or excuses. It is no surprise that Kokosnuss remains empty, as it should. Anyone considering staying there is hereby forewarned: – STAY AWAY!!

Coron, Palawan is a beautiful place to go... but don't choose kokosnuss as your accommodation. they sucks... customer service is bad... you will even clean your own order, after you finish eating you will place the food tray in front of your room guess what? you will find it again the next day... so you have no choice but to clean it up on your own... customer service is very poor, rooms are not reasonable, bugs everywhere...don't get fooled by their website... look for another place!!!!!!!!

It's hard to take kokosnuss resort seriously, what with all the bizarre decor and fake stonework and faux greek and indian statues; but it is real. Unfortunately. I found it difficult not to imagine Barbara Windsor bursting out of a bush somewhere dressed in a grass skirt, or some bizarre BBC documentary going on with all the gaudi pink curtains, fake masonry and odd design. Again this was not a nightmare from 1960s television, this is real. Quite why anyone thought that a guest would be more interested in chinz and fancy paintings, than a room having a sink (one room lacks a sink) escapes me. Why anyone would think a large gecko leaving a poo on your bathroom sink would be 'cute' is also strange (we saw the gecko and his droppings). There are clear design flaws. The bathroom does not have a wall, leaving your bedroom partner with little left to the imagination when you visit the loo. There seem to be a lot of bugs, cockroaches, ants etc. also there are a lot of cobwebs from lack of cleaning. I would tell the owner but we were so keen to escape the place that we wanted to leave very quickly. There are problems with the shower (it doesnt attach to the riser). We complained about that but I assume nothing has been done. I believe that kokosnuss are more interested in fancy paintings and fountains. The hotel owner is probably banking on the new buildings being a success, but if the standard of service does not improve I guess this hotel will not get any better. I read that this hotel was German owned and (foolishly) expected quality and attention to detail. But what a shock. Ich war gar nicht zufrieden. What a disaster. Do yourself a favour and avoid this place at all costs. And now that I mention costs, it is far more expensive than it's worth, for a little extra you can get a clean and well designed room, a good restaurant and swimming pool at sunz en hotel, just round the corner. Avoid kokosnuss garden if you can.
