We booked the Coral Bay Resort for a three night stay in early January. The host and staff are certainly welcoming and a couple of complimentary cold beers on arrival to get over the "Romancing the stone" journey from Palawan's capital we're just what the doctor ordered. I have to be honest though and ask what is the fuss all...

We absolutely loved our stay at Coral Bay resort! It's a short 5 minute tricycle ride / 25 minute walk from town, located on the beach, with the best spot for sunset. You can swim and relax on the beach in front of the resort. It's lovely and quiet (no roosters, and the short distance from town helps). The grounds...

The Coral Bay Resort provides simple and basic accommodation with a rustically charm. The view especially from the beach front cottage during sunset is absolutely breathtaking and the place-to-be for photographers. For breakfast a basic choice is provided which includes bacon, self-made bread, pancakes, eggs, baby banana, coffee and tea. Service such as additional towels and room cleaning is provided...

Coral Bay Resort is the best resort along the beach in Corong Corong and we dare to say the best in El Nido. The location is just perfect. The view over the Bacuit Archipelago is overwhelming, the sunsets – the most beautiful we have ever seen. It is a very peaceful place which is only a short tricycle ride away...

We had originally booked our last two nights in El Nido at the Coral Bay Resort and paid a 30% deposit through PayPal. Coral Bay, however, claimed that never received our deposit and despite my continual (daily) email contact with both Robert and Alain explaining that we had sent the deposit via PayPal and that we still planned on staying...

Coral Bay resort, based 2 km from the bustle of El Nido in Corong Corong, is an exceptionally run, clean and beautiful jewel in the corner of the South China Sea.

The owner and the staffs are friendly. The resort is clean and quiet, a perfect place to stay after a day of island hopping. Also, the breakfast is delicious. My family really enjoyed staying there. Highly recommended for family and couples who are looking for a quiet place to stay at El Nido.

Coral Bay is well run, clean, and a real gem of a resort. We were meant to stay at Greenviews, but had a bad experience there and after one night, we moved to Coral Bay. It was the single best decision we made during our trip to El Nido. The room was spacious, spotless and comfortable and we had a...
