Giving a homey atmosphere, Coron Village Lodge provides guests with affordable and decent accommodations.
We availed of their accommodation and tour package for our three-day stay in Coron which included six meals, entrance fees to all destinations, van transfers to and from the airport, tricycle transfers to and from Coron pier, trained guide and tour to Siete Pecados, Kayangan Lake, Twin Lagoons, Makinit Hot Spring and Mt. Tapyas.
We stayed in a two-storey apartment. There is a sala, kitchen, dining area and bathroom in the first floor. There is a television in the sala and an electric fan. A small table is placed in the dining area. Bathroom is small. Bath towels are the only ones provided and you have to bring your own toiletries. Two rooms are located in the second floor, both are air-conditioned. One room has three single beds. The other room has one family bed and a single bed. Rooms are clean but there are no cabinets. There is a terrace in one room. If you feel like going to the bathroom during the night, you have to go down to the first floor.
For our meals, we have to cross the street to the lodge’s restaurant. They prepare good food and in great amount of serving. Coffee drinkers like me will be glad as they offer unlimited coffee (but you have to make your own coffee). The restaurant is not that big with a few wooden tables. There is also a mini bar in it. The restaurant is not air-conditioned and not all areas are well ventilated. You have to pick a place where there is an electric fan. For leftovers, you can ask them to bring it in your room.
The guide that was assigned to us was very commendable. Aside from being able to impart a lot of things about Coron, she arranged and prepared everything, from our food to our transportation, during our entire tour. Things were well coordinated and we did not had any problems getting around.
Coron Village Lodge does not offer a luxurious ambiance that you get in lavish hotels but it does gives you a comfortable place to spend your nights with. Along with their tour packages, you’ll get a worry-free vacation in Coron, from your food to your transportation. Overall, Coron Village Lodge gives you good value for money.
