Corto del Mar Hotel
Ranked #6 of 20 Hotels in Coron
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 4, 2017

Who would have expected such a beauty of a hotel in small Coron, home to Philippines' wreck diving? We were so impressed with the gorgeous woodworking, such as the front desk, chairs, seats, handcarved chess set, etc. The mosaics are equally stunning. We just spent the first half hour wandering around the dining area, huge pool, reception area, and garden taking pictures. We were told the hardwoods were trees that had been toppled in storms and the reception desk was made of an old Chinese sailing junk. Corto Divers is not attached, but they provide free transportation to their shop and the lodge or the pier for diving. The room was excellent, as was the food in the restaurant. The Corto del Mar and Corto Divers made a perfect combo for diving Coron's Japanese Marus and absolutely unique Barracuda Lake, with its 100 degree f. water at depth. A fridge, icy A/C, teapot, and large bathroom made the room very inviting. Would stay nowhere else in Coron after this visit.

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a higher floor if pool noise bothers you.

All is good at this hotel, and that is exactly the price you pay for it. Which is more than average in coron town. Towels for boat tours are provided for free, nice food in the restaurant, amazing staff. Only no wifi for the past 4 days but no problem for me personally.

I found this hotel to be a very good one. Upon arrival from the airport, the lobby staff were good and efficient. Our room was clean and bright. The view wasn't the best for there were so much poverty to be seen around the hotel. The complimentary breakfast and the chefs in this hotel are excellent. Their varieties of pizzas they cook in this hotel are excellent. Arris one of the hotel managers is friendly and very helpful. The staffs in this hotel makes their hotel a four and a half star hotel. The transportation which is by tricycle is very cheap especially going around the town of Curon. The amenities are not all there but your stay will be a delightful one. YES, I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Curon. It is a four and a half star hotel in my opinion. Thumbs up!

Room Tip: It doesn't really matter for theres poverty visible around the hotel.

We stayed there for one night, so this review might not be reflective of longer periods.
But still ...
Pros: The hotel looks great just like a Spanish fortress. They have a great pool. The staff was very friendly and willing to advise and help in everything. The Pizza is A MUST TRY.
Cons: Because we stayed there only one night, they initially gave us a room with very stinky bathrooms. So we called them and after 1/2 hour they gave us another room. On the new room the shower hotness and coldness of the water was like a wave, nothing constant, it was an unpleasant experience for me and my wife.
I think the location is central, but if I was a female alone at night I would not go out by myself, because it is located inside their neighbourhood.
Last tip, everything you pay for at this hotel is charged with an additional 10% service.

Room Tip: Keep track of all payments
