Coron: Mommita's Place: Friendly family, very central.

Mommita's Place is popular among backpackers and budget concsious travelers.

Location is really good as it's very central, 2 minutes walk to the boat quay where boats are moored. Restaurants, ministores, bakeries, ATM machines, transports are all around the place or some minutes walk.

It's a guesthouse, sort of a homestay, the family who owned the place also live just at the ground level while guestrooms are on the second floor. It has a two level balcony with several orchids hanging, chairs and sofa to lounge, you can hang your wet clothes on the second balcony, mini kitchen there too to make your coffee or tea which are provided free of charge, there’s a TV on the balcony and wifi is strong and free also.

The place have 5 rooms of different sizes, single, doubles, family-size rooms, spacious, simple, ceiling and/or stand fan, small TV, big beds, and it’s airconditioned. Crisp bed sheets and blanket. Very clean indeed.

Two big bathrooms on the second floor are shared and we always find it available. There’s also one downstairs. For your own safety, they’re locking the main door facing the main street, you just have to press the buzzer to get in, especially at night. Although the family stays there, they don’t get in your way nor bother you, you just come and go, no hassle at all.

The staff are very friendly, always smiling and very accommodating with any request. The owner (Mommita) can arrange all activities in Coron.

Double room cost 800 pesos per night for two people, coffee and tea unlimited.

Clean place, friendly family, free wifi, just no breakfast.

Great place to stay while in the beautiful island of Coron.

Nice and kind family, very clean place.

El Nido: Rosanna's Cottages: Ocean view to-die-for!

I was amazed by the view at the balcony facing the beac, if it was anywhere else in any vacation island, this must have cost a fortune. I didn’t expect that the rate for the rooms facing the ocean to be really reasonable.

Located right at the beach side and few steps away from all restaurants, bars, ministores, massage parlors, and everything that is in the center of the town, although once inside the hotel, it’s quiet, the only sound you hear at night is the sound of the ocean lulling you to sleep.

It's a 2 storey with a large rooftop, beside it is another wooden cottage for family. Nice high-ceilinged lobby where wifi is available, and where the reception is also located.

Rooms, although not that big but it’s enough for two people, spanking clean room, shiny marble flooring, large bed, clean sheets, big bathroom/shower. The rooms has balcony with an amazing view of the bay and mountains, simply breath-taking.

The owner is very kind, helpful. Beth, the cheerful reception is a sweetheart, making sure that you have a wonderful stay at their place.

The place is popular so book well in advance if you like staying on the second floor, otherwise the ground level is equally nice and you don’t have to take the stairs.

Small breakfast included served at the balcony, so you'll be taking your breakfast with the amazing view of the ocean.

Great views at the balcony, quiet and friendly owner and staff.

El Nido: Tandikan Beach Cottages: Budget place by the beach.

Take a tricycle (50 pesos for the whole trike) for the 10 minutes ride to Tandikan.

Perfectly located, it’s a beach front property. The duplex accommodation which have two family rooms are directly facing the ocean with a balcony, whereas 4 room have doors and windows facing the duplex but there’s a balcony at the end - the last room – facing the beach and shared by the 4 rooms, so whether you’re on the last room or the first, you’ll get to enjoy the view of Bacuit Bay on the balcony.

Rooms – small but clean and ensuite toilet/shower. Large bed enough for two, a table, an electric fan, if you need an airconditioned room, you get to pay a higher rate. We got the fan room at PHP600.

Staff – are very polite and friendly. Hot water in thermos flask provided for your coffee.

Island hopping tours can be booked with the owner.

Aside from the good-natured staff and owner, the best thing about the place is its location, you needn’t walk far as the cleanest part of the beach without seaweeds or murky water is just in front of Tandikan, walk 50 meters on the left and it’s a bit rocky and shallow, whereas some meters on the right near the port and the water is a bit greasy and murky from the big boats and ferries docking on the port. Also, tour boats anchors in front of the place, so no need to walk far. Ministores are on the street side entrance of Tandikan, where you can buy some grocers stuff. Restaurants too are few strides away.

The place is quiet, no noisy groups, but if you’re looking for a happening place, it may not be for you, although there are couple of bars and restaurants that serve beers and liquors couple of minutes walk away.

Clean place, budget-friendly room rates, friendly owner and staff, Tandikan is value for money.
Highly recommended.

Friendly people, budget-friendly rooms.

Tay Miloy Inn: Tay Miloy Inn

I stayed at this inn at a very affordable and the cheapest rate ever. So glad, that i booked it 3 months before i go to elnido, palawan 6 hours travel from the city of puerto princesa. I recommend this hotel for a solo traveller or even a large number of groups having a budgeted expense, aside from affordable rate, the owner Mang Rodrigo accommodated us very well. He make sure that we are satisfied at the most convenient way. The room we stayed much clean and has a drawer for our safety belongings so nothing to worry about.

The views in this inn has a great overlooking of the rock cliff.. Thus, its very near the chapel of elnido, restaurant and the most convenient place, accessible to the van transportation.

Manny's Guest House: A Humble Abode

A clean and affordable place to stay, Manny's guest house is suitable for backpackers both for short or long stays. It's homey ambiance makes you feel the true essence of probinsyano lifestyle. The 3-room guest house has a common comfort/bath room, kitchen and sala. Cool sea breeze can be felt as it is overlooking the Puerto Bay.

Manong Manny, the owner, and his wife are very helpful in giving tips and advices on the places you should visit as well as the directions on how to go to those places.

Krystal Lodge, Coron: Find Total Relaxation

I have always been passionate about rustic dwellings specially when my choice of place is near the beach. Out of seven options I read from blogs, I wouldn't change a thing about staying in Krystal Lodge. The thing that made me opt for it was the odd idea that I would be staying in a house built on stilts. Savoring the seabreeze relentlessly. I didn't even realize that my four days were over.

The view from the lodge is panoramic. Since it is beach front, you have the greatest angle of the sunrise, and the sunset on the side of Mt. Tapyas which is on the eastern part of the lodge. You need not go to the market port to take the boat for your island tour activities because the boat can pick you up straight from the lodge. Just a few walks on the bamboo bridge from your room.

hotel flueris: --hotel flueris--the best!

I'm really glad i picked this hotel. It has nice ambiance, clean and quiet. Close to the town proper.. walking distance from chowking, jollibee and a lot more!!!

unfortunately i can't tell you how much per nyt stay coz had a tour package with roundtrip flight from palakbayan.

what i really like about it is that they have their own pool.. an outdoor one though.. pero marami nmn plants to cover the pool so people can't see you swimming. Yun nga lang my curfew! hehe.. pero okay na rin... i don't think you could stay past 10 anyways dahil sa pagod all day you'll be out in no time!!!

Skylight Apartelle: Moderately Priced Accommodation

They accommodated our request for additional beds in our rooms since we booked three rooms (2 rooms with 2 single beds+2addtl beds each; 1 double bed rm). We reserved in their Manila office and paid upfront when we arrived. The rooms are clean although the additional beds needs more foam/padding. They have aircon rooms with TV but weak reception of signal. One bad thing though is that our breakfasts are always delayed! We even called in our orders the previous night so we can leave early for our Honda bay tour but when we arrived at the mess hall, our breakfast are not ready and worst, the cooks haven't even arrived yet! We waited for an hour and almost didn't wait for the breakfast since we were told by the tour operator that we might miss the boat. My tip: call in your breakfast choices and have them pack it in styro so you can just eat on the way to your tour. I called the reservation officer and the owner to let them know what happened and they were apologetic about it.

It's at the heart of the city, very near the market, fast food and town plaza. You can also book you tours via their receptionist. Travel brochures/flyers are also available at the reception so you can choose your operator/agent. What I loved the most is that Marge, the reservation officer in their Manila office always gets in contact with us to check our experience.

Duchess Pension: Cheap but Clean in Puerto Princesa City

We arrived in PPS via Cebu Pacific and after a short tricycle ride, checked in at Duchess Pension. The place is very ideal for travellers on a budget. The rooms are small but clean, has aircon and Trixie-the receptionist at that time was actually helpful when we couldn't contact the bus owner going to El Nido. It has private TB, no tv, and no view which we didnt mind at all since we were just staying for a night. It's also near the market and fast food.

We stayed here for just a night and woke up early to catch the Sweety bus at San Jose going to El Nido. It's nice because the Sweety bus even dropped by in front of Duchess to pick us up. It's a good thing since we saved up on our tricycle fare, was able to choose our seats for the long ride and loaded our luggages already.

backpackers: AUDISSIE PUERTO PRINCESA

The place is clean, well-maintained. However, we're disappointed on the H & C shower as indicated in their brochure. You need to request, literal pakulo ng water sa takure. But on the ambiance, nice and simple. My friends & I enjoyed our stay here, atmosphere is laid back. They're all nice, you can chat with other guests and if you're travelling alone you won't get bored. Most of the long-staying guests just play chess & watch tv together on the open dining. Of course all rooms have tv, it's fun watching with other people... they do serve beer of course! On our first night, we went to the market to buy seafoods. They charged us minimal amount for the cooking charge. The Cook (si Manang!) is really nice and our food was really delicious esp. the crab steamed in 7Up.
We hired their van going to El Nido, just the 3 of us and another couple in the hotel. Since it's off peak, we got great discount. The son of the owner drived for us, with a free sidetrip to
Sabang for Underground River. No wonder there are a lot of guests who stayed long there. Btw, their dogs are really cute. I miss Bubbles!

All staff & owners were accomodating & friendly. Room with a view 'coz it's near baywalk, you can see the sea at your window. Good location, walking distance going to the market and rizal ave. They can also arrange city tour and el nido tour.

Sea Dive Resort: Travelling to Coron

Kokosnuss is relatively far from the town proper. I would recommend Sea Dive Resort (http://www.seadiveresort.com/) which is just near the pier where you will catch your boat for the island hopping. The shuttle from the airport to Coron town is P150. The staff from Sea Dive will just be happy to assist you with your travel arrangements around Coron. If you are on a tight budget you may wish to catch the Superferry which leaves Manila on Friday afternoon and arrives Coron Saturday morning and leaves the island on Sunday evening. You get 2 whole days to see the islands. First day could be spent island hopping and the second day going to Maquinit hot spring and around the town proper together with some souvenir shoppling.
