We immediately went to the booth of Calamian Islands Travel and Tours when we arrived at Busuanga Airport. The staff of the travel agency welcomed us with a lay made of sea shells. It was my first time to experience such a welcome and it felt so touristy =) After checking our vouchers she led us to a van that would take us to Coron Eco Lodge.
Coron Eco Lodge is a new two-storey hotel located along one of Coron's main road and built near the Municipality Office. They started their operations last April 2012. This modestly designed hotel has 22 room suites, free wifi and buffet breakfast. The hotel's reception area, hallway and room were delightfully designed. The room's 15 sqm space is enough for 2 single beds, it has cable ready TV, airconditioning and en-suite with hot and cold shower. The room was clean, smells good, comfortable and relaxing. The location was very convenient, near restaurants, bars, pharmacies and convenient stores. The hotel is also offering eco-tours and other outdoor activity package just in case you haven't arranged your activities with a travel agency.
When we arrived at the hotel another travel agency staff welcomed us. She was there to facilitate our check in with the hotel and inform us of our booked activities in Coron. The hotel staff also greeted us with a smile. After Dave filled up the forms, the hotel receptionist gave us our key and the bellboy immediately led us to our rooms.
The warm welcome that we received from the staff of Coron Eco Lodge and Calamian Islands Travel and Tours has given me a good impression about Coron Island. In 4 days that we stayed in Coron everybody has never failed to greet us with a smile. They were even very willing to assist us of our needs and answer our queries about going around the town on our own. Coupled with a reasonable price it made our stay in Coron Islands pleasurable, worthwhile and unforgetable.
