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

El Rio y Mar Resort: Where the River meets the Sea

If I am to ask the best accommodation in Coron/Busuanga area, I will say it's El Rio y Mar Resort. As the name says, it's where the river meets the sea. The resort is surrounded by mangroves where guests can kayak. El Rio y Mar has three types of accommodation: native cabana, cedar cabana and the newest, Casa morena. If you are a couple going to the resort, I recommend you stay in the cedar cabana because of it's inviting ambiance. I recommend this resort to people who want to have a very relaxing vacation because you will not only enjoy here, you'll also get the value of your money through their services.

They have an infinity pool (i like it! ), kiddie pool, Port Caltom's Reef Bar (where you can lounge and drink your heart out), mouthwatering cuisine (i swear!), and most specially, the BEST staff!

El Rio y Mar staff will surely pamper you during your stay in the resort.

Kokos Nuss: Very nice place but a tricycle ride away

This is a very nice place, very well decorated with a charming garden but you cannot walk downtown from there, and there is not much just out of the door. To get to a local restaurant you'd have to take a tricycle. Or depend on their kitchen which is reportedly not very reasonably priced. The rooms are cute and toilets unique. The room prices are inexpensive.

Divelink Resort (better price for divers)

Divelink is a good resort relatively. It was once visited by the present female president of the country. However the published rate at the range over Php 4000 may be a bit expensive (check with its web site). I experienced a bargain rate. Being a diver, I joined Divecal diving centre which is linked with the said resort and I was offered a Php 1500 per person per nite including breakfast residence at the resort. Picked up by dive boat at the private pier of the resort. Very convenient. Google their web to compare

Excellent view. Secluded.
