Location is remote with poor infrastructurePosted May 5, 2014 on Hotels
All day crowing from roosters kept by neighbours. Food portions are small. No credit card facility on-site; have to pay $70 to travel to Coron town and $70 back to get cash. No jeepneys or taxis in village. Transport is on scooters. Lots of insects in room. But beautiful sunset.

Needs to advertise re: hidden costsPosted Jan 8, 2014
Pros: The food and local staff. Location was v beautiful if hard to get to.
Cons: More work on the accommodation - putting in windows. More advertisement re: hidden costs
Location: Go to an island and go snorkelling - the best thing to do is use it as your base to take day boat trips.
There should be more description of the hardcore 1.5 hours it takes to get there via dirt road. Accommodation was poor - leaking toilet and no windows which isn't good when there are barking dogs and roosters behind your room. Food was great and staff very friendly but there are hidden costs which should be advertised more. Not too bad but there is room for improvement compared to other places we stayed in the Philippines for the same price - i.e. El Nido.

Nice staff, beautiful sea viewPosted Dec 27, 2013 on Hotels
All of the hotel staffs are friendly. Food is international and actually good. We went 1 months after the strong typhoon Yolanda, therefore many hardware of the hotel are broken. We didn't have water in our room, and electricity is not stable. It's a great place for young people to experience the nature. Beautiful sea view right in front of window. But for those travelers looking for comfortable holiday, Pier house might be too aboriginal for you- no hot water, no proper shower, no proper window to keep mosquito away...etc. On the contrary, if you are a backpacker, you would love this place for its kindness and beauty.

Pros: The staff - friendly and helpful, it was more like being a house guest than being in a hotel. And the sunsets across the bay, awesome
Cons: Again, it would be unfair to comment on this.
Location: I was there for the scuba diving, but there are plenty of other options for the non-divers, including beach and island hopping and kayaking.
It would be unfair to rate the this hotel on things like condition or comfort, seeing as how I arrived just days after one of the most powerful typhoons on record had ripped across the island. There was no running water, power was from a generator for just a few hours a day, and the damage caused by Yolanda was still being repaired - but I still had a great time there, and I would be more than happy to go back.

Not what we expectedPosted Nov 6, 2013 on Hotels
The location is BEAUTIFUL. The manager is very nice and helpful. He walks around without a shirt in his dreadlocks, which I thought was kind of funny, the atmosphere is very laid back and incredibly relaxing. However when we got there we were informed that there is no running water due to some plumbing work being done in the town. They had our contact information and no one had bothered inform us of this before arriving. It is quite expensive to get to the hotel, so we spent the night and left the next morning. Since we paid for three nights we asked for a partial refund but not have heard back.
