Very pleased with our choice to stay at Busuanga Bay Lodge. It is a hidden gem in Palawan. The views from every angle are beautiful and amazing. The facilities were clean, and the staff were all wonderful.
We stayed in Al Faro at the beginning of November, booked the tower room (honeymoon Suite) for 3 nights but we extended our stay with further two nights, we just didn't want to leave. It's the most amazing place we'd ever stayed. Loved the architecture of the light house as well as the bungalows. Nenita went over and above to make our stay as smooth as possible. She made sure every single guest in her place is happy. Whatever we needed, she was there to help us. Her crew was fantastic too, everyone is smiling all day. We felt like we were surrounded by friends and they were all working on making our stay happy. Al Faro is the perfect place to chill, put the phone away and enjoy nature. We have seen the most amazing sunsets from the hotel's pool!
I booked 3 rooms in this resort because there were 10 of us family members. The place still shows damages from hurricane Yolanda. I gave 2 stars for room comfort because one of the cottages we were given had no sink and had only a curtain for a bathroom door. The family room and the other room they gave us had good bathrooms. Also, if you are allergic to smoke, do not stay in the cottages that have thatched/native roofing. Apparently, people in Coron burn either garbage or dried plants. The smoke would seep through the room and you will be inhaling smoke. Request a room that have a solid structure. The shuttle service to and from the hotel was efficient and prompt. If you want to eat breakfast before your excursions, the hotel staff will cook for you. We took a package tour recommended by the hotel staff; a whole day excursion and very well worth it. The views of the islands were breathtaking. We went snorkling and saw lots of live corals. Be prepared to walk up the rocky steps toward one of the lakes. We went to Maguinit Hotspring; the road was not paved so it was a bumpy ride. We ventured to town on our own by riding the local transportation-motorcycle with a passenger sidecar. The tricycle driver took us to where we could buy cheap souvenier t-shirts. We ate dinner in one of the restaurants the hotel recommended. Prices of food in the menu were reasonable. If you are an adventurer and do not mind the inconveniences associated with an underdeveloped place, visit Coron.
My wife and I stayed at La Nature for week in November 2013 and were pleasantly surprised. It was right after the Haiyan Typhoon, but the disaster did not hold the hotel staff back from giving us their best service. The facilities is out of town which was a great break from the city of Coron. La Natura is perfectly kept and has tree houses, a massage hut, and the best food we've had in all of Asia. The service is great and all the amenities at the resort are affordable. Wendy is the absolutely best service person we ever had in our lives. She is genuinely nice and pays attention to every detail.
The only suggestion we had was to get AC units for the rooms as it is quite hot. They do have a ceiling fan so it wasnt too bad.
You must stay here if you go to Coron. Best resort in every way on the island!
