If you consider to choose this hotel , you have to read my review before you make final decision !!

I stay in Coron 6 nights , first three days at Two season bayside hotel , it's nice (You can see my another review for two season) . and last three days I choose Corto Del Mar because it's Top 3 hotel at Coron according to TripAdvisor reviews. And..... I was wrong!!! The worst service and hotel management I never seen !! In normal case , maybe this hotel is acceptable , but if they have big group guest , and those guest is rude with no courtesy / politeness , that will be a big problem !!! Here is the whole story ~

Apr.7 , this hotel have a big group guest visit named "M Security Tech Company" (hereinafter called "M-company") , They have a party at dinner time , and use speaker singing very loudly , it was fine , but they keep singing to 2 a.m. , Yes , "2 am" , I called to front desk about three times to complaint this , they always feedback they already informed M-company , but not work , that's all !! Karaoke is provided by hotel , and they can do NOTHING to stop this rude behavior , "Inform them" , That's all what this hotel solve this issue !! So I was finally fed up with this , I told front desk , If I still hear they singing with your Karaoke device , I will go to front desk and ask return my money , and change to the other hotel . so they stop singing , BUT!!!! lot of drunk people move to pool side which should already be closed at 11 pm , and they kept talking loudly , laughing , yelling .....
This time I directly open my door , and stare those rude guests , front desk saw my fury , use local language to ask them silence , and they didn't keep quiet for long , about 5 min later , they start talking , laughing , yelling AGAIN and AGAIN ..... can't remember when they stop , probably 4 am .
BTW , I have to get up early at 7 am , I have to go to airport on 8:30 am .

Apr.8 morning , I only slept about three hours , I go to front desk and try to escalate this to manager , Here is the brief of she talked to me ~
1. They did inform those guests to be quiet , but not work , so you can talk to M company by yourself (Yes , they ask "ME" , their guest to talk to M-company be quiet by myself !!!)
2. Most of guests are M-Company (So ? Is this means other guests have to tolerate this ?)
3. You are the only guest to complaint about this . (Other guest didn't escalate because M-company is a huge group stay at this hotel , they don't want to get into trouble , this NOT means other guest don't feel uncomfortable! )

After this useless conversation , I gave up , If you are looking for Coron hotel , I strongly recommend you to keep away from this ! Try two season bayside or others , if you don't want to screw up your vacation .

------------------------------------------
Summary of Pros/Cons
Pros:
1. Free airport pick up / drop off .
2. Close to pier and main street , can reach there by walk.
3. They have dive shop , can join dive tour easily

Cons:
1. Front desk and manage level service is poor , don't know how to manage hotel .
2. If there is any big group stay at hotel , other guest rights will be sacrificed
3. No beautiful scenery outside of window , face to pool , or face to local people house .
4. No Wifi in your room

AGAIN , strongly recommend you to choose other hotel if you still have other options .
I fully responsible to what I say here!

Room Tip: If you don't need balcony , choose Standard room , it have larger indoor space if compare with superior .

My family and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and it was more than enough of what we need for a vacation away from Manila. The front desk staff was quick to re-book our reserved room with no fuss, as we had to move our date of visit a day later than expected.
The hotel offers free shuttle service to and from the airport which is a great help. You will receive a complimentary drink upon arrival and a smile from the receptionist (Joanna) at the front desk. For package tours, the best advice is to book them in advance with the hotel receptionist because some spots are limited. Payment for the tour packages can be charged to your room. You can borrow several beach towels to take with you during tours. Wifi is limited only at the Front desk but some weak signal reached our room since we reserved the Sea view junior suite directly above the reception.
The room was spacious and had an awesome view, the few houses before the water which really didn’t bother us at all. This town started as a fishing village, so it is well understood that the settlers were here first and built their houses long before the hotel started operation.
The complimentary breakfast was good, I recommend Danggit with fried rice. Pools were kept well and clean along with the rest of the place.
I left my DSLR camera in the van on the way to the airport and didn't notice it was missing till we landed in Manila. The Front desk staff was quick to assist and helped us recover the unit. They went above and beyond what was required of them just to send my camera back to Manila by courier. I am very grateful to Ms. Joanna and the rest of the Hotel staff for their help.

We stayed here for 4 nights in January 2017. It's a great hotel with a beautiful pool and close enough to the docks but just off the beaten path so you have a bit of quiet. Great food at the restaurant but wouldn't recommend the bar. Drinks are way overpriced considering what you pay at other places in town. Staff are dicey, some were wonderful and some are clearly not suited for the service industry, particularly the restaurant servers. The bartenders were consistently fantastic but the servers were brusk, resentful and full of eye rolls and annoyed sighs with even 1 question about a menu item or a request for a water/coffee refill (which is free with breakfast). Not a deal breaker but I expected a bit better service given the hotel's price point.

Stayed 5 nights. Staff are wonderful. Dived with the affiliated Corto Divers dive shop and was able to charge everything to the room. You even get a small discount diving with them. Breakfast was excellent. We even ate other meals at the hotel restaurant which were good. Two blocks walking and you're on the main road through town where you'll find all sorts of shops, restaurants, stores, etc. being off the main road is best if you want peace and quiet. If 2 blocks is too much of a walk, then take a motorized tricycle for 10 pesos anywhere in town.
The only complaint that I have with the hotel is that wifi only works in the front desk area and even then very spotty. Depends on how many people are there trying to acces. Best bet is 5:00 AM - 5:45 AM. Another group of my friends stayed at the blue wave hotel and had much better wifi access.
Yes, I'm on vacation anyway but trying to check in for flights becomes a problem. Maybe they should have a dedicated PC/business center for important stuff like that.
I would still return to this hotel if coming back to Coron.

Hotel infrastructure is good but not perfect. There was a contact problem with the light beside the bed and as other reviews already state the water is not really easy to adjust and is either hot or cold. For a hotel in this price category we were shocked how bad the service is. Restaurant and room cleaning was ok but the staff at the reception was not really welcoming or friendly. We were also not provided any information about the hotel or surroundings. Compared to other Filippinos we met and talked to during our stay in Coron this was really surprising as everyone was so friendly! There was no hotel manager in the hotel who asked us how our stay is and whether we need any help.

We decided also to test the laundry service. The laundry smelled nice but was put back into the dirty bag! Everywhere else you get either a new bag or the clean laundry gets wrapped with plastic! You are better off putting the laundry to a shop down the road (direction to the loading area for boat trips).

Another thing to mention is that the complementary breakfast is really small. For everything you want in addition you have to pay.

This hotel could be so great and has a lot of potential if the above points are improved. For this price and the bad service I have to give it a 2* review. We were also not asked how we liked the stay at the check out. No good bye or have a nice trip. The hotel urgently needs a manager who provides training to the staff.
