due to the excellent weather our flight was not delayed. Mr. Tawinis (the driver who picked us up) was very accommodating, he helped everyone with their things and was seated accordingly. It took us at least 15 mins to get to the resort. Welcome drinks were served (it was really delicious!) the staff was very pleasant and very obedient with all of the guests.

We stayed at La Vista Suite C and found the room very much interesting, the room was enough for us 4 girls. A nice and clean bathroom, a loft and 3 queen size beds. The food was scrumptious especially the sizzling tanigue. food costs around 200- 250. It was clearly explained to us that the food choices are limited due to the availability of what they can buy at the market.

it's a place where you can relax and get away from your "boss" since there is no internet connection and a limited coverage from globe. it's not as crowded as the other resorts that i went to. as soon as i got back from the trip i immediately checked their website and it didn't do the resort any justice.

go here and you wont be disappointed :)

Our flight was delayed for 10 hours due to bad weather but the resort owner (Dindo Narciso) is so nice and very accommodating despite our delay in schedule.

The resort is 15-mins away from the airport but its worth the drive. All the drivers at the airport know each other so they will help you go to your destination. Despite some rough roads going to the resort, it was worth it since the view is breathtaking.

The staff (Trini, Rommel and Jeric) is very friendly and provides personalized service. Had the best breakfast (fried rice, danggit and eggs). Rooms are spotless. Since the place is very remote, there's limited cellphone signal, no internet, no landlines and no cable TV but there's a wide library of movies (VCDs) that you can choose from.

I really appreciate the effort that the staff had given me and my friends during our stay.

1. I still have 6 insect bites from the bed. I don't know if they are from bed mites. There are a lot of insects inside the room. On our 2nd night, there was a tuko on the ceiling. Definitely there are holes in the casitas where they could enter.

2. I asked the staff to change the beddings on our 2nd day because of the insect bites I have and the musty odor of the sheets. They smell like old wet wood. They cleaned our room but they did not change the sheets. How did I know? Same stain on the fitted sheet I saw on our 1st night. There were no blankets in our room as well. I had to request for it the following day.

3. We got stock in our room because the double lock did not work. My husband tried to open it for 40 minutes at 11:40 PM. We need to get out of the room in case an emergency happens like fire, etc. We told the staff about it the following morning but nothing was done.

4. I asked the staff to put a light bulb inside the closet on our first day at the resort but they decided to do it on our 3rd day. I told her not to bother anymore because we were already leaving the following day.

5. We had to ask for hot water for the shower everyday because we there was no hot water in our bathroom.

6. My husband and I have to take our medications exactly the same hour each day. We would asked your staff to prepare our food at a certain time but they were always late.
On our 4th day (last day) I asked the night before if they could serve breakfast at 7AM. But they did not serve it until 7:15 and we were leaving the resort at 8 am. It did not give us enough time to do our last minute packing and bathroom visits etc.

There were 5 of us so the set breakfast were supposed to be for 5 people. They served only 4 plates so I had to ask them to prepare for another 1. They probably thought that since my husband requested for toast and jam, that would be the 5th plate.

I emailed this to the resort owner/management but no reply.

I personally chose this place away from Coron Town (around 30mins drive) because I prefer to have a quiet time from busy city life and after our Island tour, it is nice to just enjoy the quiet time just being there. The resort is not for everyone specially for those who prefer to have crowd, night life but it is for people who likes quiet and tranquil place. We stayed in casitas. They have a pool, a place for hiking although we didn’t have the chance to check it out. The resort don’t have network signal as some part of coron also don’t have but it didn’t matter to us, as we are on a holiday trip. There is no wifi in the room, only available in the pool and restaurant area which we also don’t mind as it is good to enjoy the holiday than to be virtually active. The best part of this resort are the people, the warm hospitality and the food (“,) love the danggit, seaweeds, halohalo and the fresh coconut juice. Thank you Busuanga Island Paradise for making our short stay sweet and memorable (“,)

We love the location. Secluded and quiet. If you're looking for night life, this is not the hotel for you.
If you're looking to getaway from busy life, this is the perfect place. It is situated 15 minutes from the Coron town.


Positives:
1. Clean and tranquil
2. Friendly staff
3. La Vista rooms are nice

Negatives:
1. Need better curtains to cover rooms. Especially the bathrooms, they only have simple blinds. This is a privacy issue
2. The hotel only provide courtesy ride to the town once daily. This should be unlimited to compensate for the remote location of this resort
3. Resort was too focus on getting airport transfer fee from us. Even when it was clearly written on our itinerary. We did not pay but the hassle of trying to explain was waste of my time.

In the first week of May 2017, my family had spent one of the best summers to date...a visit to CORON in the beautiful island of PALAWAN, PHILIPPINES. Since we planed in from Manila to Coron via Busuanga Airport, we decided to stay in a hotel in Busuanga just 10 minutes from the airport - BUSUANGA ISLAND PARADISE. It was a choice that we never regretted. BIP is a beautiful resort hotel located in the midst of dense folliage at the foot of the mountains of Busuanga. The rooms we stayed in were "casitas"- modern huts, if you were to ask me. It was waking up to the chirping of birds, light early morning drizzles, listening to the sounds of crickets, geckos and bullfrogs come dusk...one for nature lovers who go for the peace and quiet of the country. The hotel offers free shuttle service to the main town of Coron which is about 20-25 minutes away. CORON was our main objective in going to Palawan and staying at BIP as our "rest place" after the daiy tours in Coron made our vacation doubly memorable, fun and exciting! So when planning a trip to Coron, choose to stay at Busuanga Island Paradise...in the northern island paradise of Palawan.

We were staying here for 3 nights and really loved it! The staff is really friendly, the rooms are very clean and also the bathroom was very clean! They have a nice swimming pool and offer a free shuttle to the city! It is a 10-15 minute drive to the city center. I would really recommend this hotel!!

Here are my Pros
1. Peaceful - It is far away from the town proper so a good and steady sleep is absolutely possible.
2. Staff service was great.
3. Free shuttle service from hotel to town and vice versa.
4. Free Breakfast was good.
5. Hot and Cold shower was available.
6. It felt good when people are addressing you as BIP guest as it may sound VIP to others. Lol!
Cons:
1. My main issue was the room I have booked. We booked the Casita which offers two double beds however, I did not notice that it was only good for 1 person. I have started my search for 2 adults and so I was under the impression that the room will be good for 2. Given also that it has large rooms. But I was wrong. It was probably my mistake as I was not able to caught it. So you better be careful when booking rooms at this hotel if you do not want to add extra cash.
2. Too far away from the Town which limits your hours to tour the town or do other activities as the shuttle is only until 7PM. If you missed the shuttle, be ready to pay trike for 300 pesos or rent their van for 1200 pesos.
3. They do not have HOT/WARM POOL and JACUZZI. It was just a pool and a jacuzzi at a normal temperature.
4. No In-Room WiFI.
5. They have big dogs that won't let you walk super early in the morning as they would bark at you. It is up to you if you would dare to do it.
6. Cellular signals are poor that you have to go to the main entrance to get fairly good signal.

Stayed here for only one night on the way to Ocamocam beach. This place is secluded and away from the hectic life in the city. The amenities were clean and the pool was relaxing. Can't comment about food or breakfast as we didn't eat while we were there but the hotel staff was super nice. If you're looking to get away and just want to enjoy the family and loved, this is a great place. Thank you for making our accommodations great and hope to be back sooner than later.

My mom, dad, and brother stayed here for 5 days/4 nights (April 20 -24). It takes around 20 mins from the airport to get here. Great location even if it's away from the town, but most big hotels are, no need to worry because really nothing much to do in the town proper.

Entering the resort you can feel the laid back aura of the place. Very quiet.Lots of birds chirping and greenery. There were only 8 guests checked in when we arrived (but the management said the resort gets really busy during weekends) because of that they let us allow to choose what kind of La Vista room we wanted, we opted for a room with 3 single beds that has an upper balcony with also a single.

The room spacious, equipped with 2 air conditioning (one for lower and upper floor) , we only kept one one because it gets really cold even on low. Bathroom is very spacious, even has a space for dressing up (which comes handy since the rooms' curtains are very thin) Television is provided by satellite cable that runs on prepaid load provided and serviced by management, although it did happen quite often that they forget to reload it but eventually they do. Wifi is can be accessed in the restaurant and pool area.

Brown outs occurs frequently in that area of Coron but would just last for like 20 mins, but the resort has generators so dont worry they start it up as soon as the electricity goes down, you wont even notice (at least not until night)

The resort follows a schedule on its trip to town but they do make exceptions when they can which they did for us. Drivers and staffs are very friendly (especially kuya Jun as our driver :) ) They offer tours but much more expensive than the regular (excluding meal and entrance fees) I recommend Coron Galeri which is the most popular and most reliable in Coron, such cheap prices that includes food and entrance fees with guides, staffs were also very accommodating and informative.

We had lunch at their restaurant after getting settled. The food serving is quite small on certain dishes. Breakfast buffet is only available if they have 15 or more so guest staying so we had set meals during our stay. You get to have 2 eggs of your choice of cooking and a choice between Dangit (fish), Longganisa, corned beef and continental (ham or bacon w/ toast). Bread, coffee and tea is unlimited, serving of rice is very generous tho.

Very laid back place that really takes you away and unwinds you after a tiring day of touring Coron. Great aura and people. Definitely a place to stay in Coron.

No. It's far from the main town and makes exploring the town difficult. The resort is quiet, peaceful and beautiful and the food is delicious but expensive.

Food was average. Fine for 1 night, but ventured into Coron for the second night. We did tour A, which we booked through reception, and highly recommend it.
