Paradise in Coron
We stayed three nights are El Rio Y Mar Resort and wish we could have stayed a week. This resort is hands down the best resort we have stayed at in the Philippines. It's very secluded from the hustle and bustle of Coron yet close enough that you can still do the island hopping tours and excursions. The staff were exceptional from the time you arrive to the time you depart. The food at the ONLY restaurant was absolutely delicious. We were a bit nervous about there only being one restaurant however there were over 100 items on the menu and the chef and their team did an exceptional job of creating some truly wonderful dishes. They have a guitar duo serenading couples at dinner each night. Their collection of songs was outstanding as I did not see them miss one request. There is no shortage of activities on the resort. From hiking, to an array of water sports, to scuba diving and just lounging on the beach or by the infinity pool. This resort has it all. If you are looking to trying disconnect and relax this is the place for you. The rooms were nice but not over the top. Just what you need for a comfortable nights sleep. We will be back for sure!!
