A very friendly hotel near the beachPosted Mar 23, 2017
Pros: The friendlyness between and amongst guests and staff.
Cons: The door locks but I did feel safe.
Location: The hotel has no other hotels or shops nearby. However there were trips organised and one could hire boats or taxis to other locations.
This is a really friendly hotel. It is right on the beach. The hotel is isolated but this is made up for by organised trips and friendly hotel staff as well as guest. Whilst I was there the guests apart from me and one guest from Brazil were all German. We all spoke German but the hotel staff also speaks good English. It is a hotel used mainly by divers However, it is also good for snorkelers for whom day trips with picnics were arranged. As I am really keen on snorkeling the hotel arranged a small boat to take me out to the reef for 1 hour snorkeling at a cost of appr. £8. There is also a nice swimming pool and on the sea front there are deck chairs. I also walked along the beach every day. Breakfast was included in my deal. Dinner costs £8 but the food is very good and varied.

Quiet, relaxing placePosted Feb 8, 2017
If you are looking for great food, quiet, peaceful, family friendly place by the water, I recommend this hotel. It has simple, no TV, free wifi -allowing you to enjoy the beauty of nature.

Do not recommendPosted Feb 4, 2016
This hotel is close to nothing. It is about an hour away from Puerto Prinseca, and about 45 minutes to the closest beach. Although they have a private beach, it is not one for swimming, nor sunbathing. You have to pay a driver to get around, as there is no free shuttle service. Cost is 3500 PHP for a driver, wich is a dent in a buget just to get out of the resort. The only place you can eat is at the resorts restaurant. Food is mainly German, because it is German owned... Not to say absolutely disgusting. Food this poor should be included. It is a nonsense to pay for everything you consume when there is no where else you can eat! No hot water in the shower, no TV except in the honeymoon suites (and they don't work all the time). No wi-fi in rooms - only a hot spot available at the restaurant during meal hours, and sometime it is not available at all). Do not use laundry service. My clothes came back with a film a soap, damp and with moth holes. I could go on and on. Only good thing is theFilipino staff... Otherwise, don't book thinking it is a good deal. The food is triple what it costs anywhere else !

Peace and quietPosted Mar 3, 2014 on Hotels
The first time we went to Coopers Beach it was in season and it was just right, I don't think it ever gets overcrowded. We actually got engaged there, it is quite a romantic venue. There were a variety of very interesting people to converse with, however this time it was out of season and it was quiet with only a few guests so it was peaceful and a good rest. The staff are great, very friendly, the management make you feel like you're part of the family. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable and the bar is well stocked. Coopers is great for diving or snorkelling trips and I did avail myself of a dive. Kevin the dive-master is very professional and the boat is perfectly set up. The crew were extremely helpful in getting you out of the water.

Too isolatedPosted Oct 5, 2013 on Hotels
This hotel is beautiful and the grounds stunning but it is a huge tourist trap. There are no options... you must go to "their" restaurant, for instance because there is NOTHING ELSE in the area... no other restaurants, no shops, no WiFi, no people, no options... you are really at their mercy for them to charge any price they want. I was completely dominated by and dependent upon the owners for there are no taxis either. They asked equivalent to $70 US in pesos just to go to town. It's an hour drive but no one in Philippines charges that much. The prices at the restaurant were extremely high for Philippines. There is no choice on food... they have a menu they plan each night and if you don't like it... don't eat. I was just shocked at the prices... and stuck. They can ask any price they want because there is nothing I could do about it. They are a hard-working family and doing a good job... I just want options when I travel.

too far from everything, especially airport.....food was pricey and dinner so so since we were stuck with what they served and not informed of price etc...no shuttle after 5:30 pm and pricey if not staying longer than 2 nights,,,,,otherwise, nice secluded place..not much of a beach to walk on or swim..guess it's a dive resort..

Not a resort for who likes white sand beachesPosted May 2, 2013
This resort was very disappointing..they claim to be by the beach but then the beach is not for swimming at all.. Full of seaweeds and jellyfish.. The sand is also dirty..when they clean the rooms they don't automatically change the towels you have to ask forit. The resort is literally in the middle of nowhere.. No wifi no stores or shops nearby.. If somebody wants to have a very private retreat then I guess this is the resort for you

Perfect in every way!Posted Dec 31, 2012
Pros: The staff and the family atmosphere.
Location: Completely unspoilt. No other hotels for miles!
I stayed at Cooper's for three nights and was really impressed with every aspect of my stay. A free pick up / drop off to and from the airport is provided. The location is on a completely unspoilt part the coastline. They arranged for me a last minute trip to the underground river with minimum of fuss. If you want a completely chilled out place to stay with absolutely no concerns then this is the place to stay. The staff are wonderful and the food is of good quality buffet style, so you will never feel hungry. I just hope I get to go back some day!!
