Arrival: When I first arrived at Chindonan Dive Resort I was greeted by two lovely local girls when I got off the boat who escorted me to the eating area just a few meters up the jetty. I was then greeted by the owners. Two gentlemen of Danish origin who introduced me to My Dive Guide to be. I arrived... More

There is a place that could make u relax ,everything u want to do is diving .儘管有些不方便,例如:房間沒空調,只有電風扇,但我覺得電風扇就夠用了,洗澡沒熱水 而且水非常小,wifi的訊號也很弱,度假村也會定時停電,在這裡不用擔心太多事情,使用任何設施也都是被允許的,但必須自己為自己負責,沒人會看管你,這裏的食物份量也很夠,口味也不錯,另外所有消費會在退房當天做結清,可以付現也可刷卡,可以不用帶著這麼多現金在身上.

There's a lot of bad things you could say about this resort, but what people don't seem to appreciate is this is an isolated island and the resort has been built from scratch by the owners and they are constantly in the process of modernising it. Firstly I will say if you like luxury and variety, then this is not... More

A place for wreck diving, no marine life. Wreck diving was good specially when visibility is good. Joseph, our diving instructor was really good and familiar with the area, thumbs up for him, The resort is very basic, no hot water and no water pressure, barely can shower and it was painful with the cold water. There was a Tokay... More

The diving on the wrecks was awesome and the dive instructors were very helpful even though we were inexperienced divers. All the staff were lovely and very helpful. The location of the resort was remote but allowed some time out. The close proximity to the dive sights allowed multiple dives a day and a break back at the resort in... More

I stayed at chindonan resort while I was on a vacation throughout the Philippines. The area that chindonan is located in is very remote and a great place to relax away from the hostels and shops of Coron Town. There are a couple small villages on the island and pretty much nothing else. The diving is fantastic near the resort... More

This is a pleasant place but no actual beach so if you are not a diver, there is not much to do except boat rides to snorkeling spots. Marine reserves nearby are in bad shape - clearly not protected from fishing. Best snorkeling is right in front of the resort since they don't allow fishing. Rooms very basic, plain and... More

My husband and I went on a long camping trip around the beautiful islands of Coron so we thought at the end of it we would "pamper" ourselves for 2 days at Chindonan resort.
