CORON BACKPACKERS GUEST HOUSE: BUDGET ROOMS

We never actually stayed here but if anyone is looking for a cheap room you cannot beat this place that charges 380 pesos and upwards. There is a ref and oven where you are able to cook for yourself, free wifi, coffee, drinking water . Just check out their website, seems like a bargain, and it is also in a good location, a few minutes walk from the market and restaurants.

tita lilian's place: best accomodation!, best people!

it was the first time i ever went to coron and the homestay with tita lilian was one of the best experience i ever had beside the great outdoors and the nice people. the place is a little hidden from the main road but the view at their balcony is breathtaking!

you can choose from their aircon rooms which is a bit modern and their fan rooms which is made up of bamboo floors and sawali walls which is okay if you want to experience the whole provincial feel. but we opted to use their aircon room bcoz it was the height of summer and so we can have a good nights sleep for our adventures the next day.

we had an extended stay in coron because our flight from cebu pacific was cancelled because of bad weather, (which lasted for only 15mins!!!!) and totally pissed off most of the passengers especially me because airphils express plane left the airport after the rain has stopped for 30mins to an hour. cebu pacific did not even has the decency to provide us with an accomodation, even water because of their cancelled flight. tita lilian was kind enough to allow us to stay in the airconditioned room we rented when she learned of what has happened to us, even though we cannot pay for it because there is only one bank at coron
(and if i can remember it correctly it does not have a atm) and we ran out of cash. she even told us that we can stay for free but we know that it was business and it was peak season so we told her that when we reached manila we will immediately deposit the money to her account. where can you find a person such as she?

tita lilian and her husband, they are very kind, sweet and hospitable. they live on the first door along the catwalk like type bridge, even their helpers boyet and del are very nice and kind even though they are just kids.

tita lilian's place is a very well situated because it is near the public market, the church, mt. tapyas ( coz its near we went there twice) even the cebu pacific office. they can even prepare our trip around coron.

the accomodations they offer are:
airconditioned room # 1 shared t&b with fan room #2 - both good for 5 pax
airconditioned room # 2 with t&b - good for 5 pax
fan room #1 - good for 5 pax

- it has a balcony over looking the sea (where we usually eat)
- a kitchen (where you can cook your food or you can ask tita lilian to cook for you which of course you have to pay for)
- a dining area
- you can even use their tv with cable for free
- it also has a terrace-cum-dock where we were picked up for our tour around the islands of coron

we stayed on the aircon rm for php1500 a night and the fan rooms are even less than php1000 but that was april of 2009

Discovery Divers: Dive resort

The place is simple. No Aircon, or heater for your shower. But the place is nice and simple. It is spacious and there are also books available for you to read. Since you are in an island, you are in a private place. Food is ok. And the owner Gunther is very historically sound as well with regards to the shipwrecks around Coron

Good place to relax after diving
