Perfect 10”

If you are looking for a place with a beach front and at the same time with mountain view, El Rio y Mar is the ideal place for you. It is a private resort far from the city hassle. The resort offers for FREE different activities that you don't need to go somewhere else such as Mountain Trekking (Hard and Easy), snorkling, kayaking, paddle boarding, peddal boarding, 2 pool areas, billiards, tablle tennis, movie house, and mini library. You always have something to do even if the weather is not favorable - raining. Other exciting activies for a FEE are Scuba diving, Coron tours, and fish spa at the sea. Dugong Diving Center is owned and managed by well experienced diver with 25+ years of experience in diving across the globe. Dirk, the owner, ensures to provide guests with best diving experience even if you are a first timer and with physical disability. I am sharing based on my experience. As a traveller, another thing for my consideration is the hospitality of the hotel/resort staff for me and my family to feel at-home away from home. The El Rio y Mar Resort's staffs are all kind and always willing to help. You will feel welcome the moment they pick you up from the airport and you will be surprised by the resort staffs with a welcome song the moment you reached the resort. You can enjoy the bar's happy hour at the resort's port from 5pm to 8pm everyday with a perfect sunset view. If you are looking for a city vibe accommodation, I would say this is not the place as this is a private resort and you have to ride a speedboat for 15-min and van for 45-min to reach the city proper for a FEE. If you want to experience both city and nature vibes, the suggested itinerary is to enjoy the city hotels for a couple of days and move to El Rio y Mar Resorts for some nature vibes vice versa. For me and my wife who looked for more nature vibes with different activities to enjoy within the resort, El Rio y Mar is perfect place for us and looking forward to come back with

Honeymooners Paradise ”

My wife and I were here for 3 nights on our honeymoon. It was absolutely amazing. Constantly wowed by the facility and its staff. There were fun activities and great meals, including the romantic beach dinner they provided with five delicious courses. We were treated like royalty from the moment we were brought up the river to the pier and welcomed with cheerful song. It has been the best time of our lives and it's hard to say goodbye...better yet...till we meet again.

Peaceful & Private ”

Coron Palawan, undeniably holds a special place in our heart. People are so nice and respectful most of all it’s a safe environment in downtown area. The resort is so peaceful and very private. The service from the airport to the port and finally the resort is so organized. Great staff who knew how to serve the customer and the service was excellent. From the porch , we could view the sea, surrounded by mountains and feel the cool breeze. The view of the sunset from that point was mesmerizing. The location of our room was absolutely perfect. The scenery was beautiful. My boyfriend and I didn’t want to leave the island. We are definitely coming back.

Awesome stay and small and friendly hotel with excellent dive center”

We really enjoyed our stay at El Rio y Mar. The staff made us feel welcome right from the beginning, the rooms were spacious and equipped with all the necessary amenities. The integrated Dugong Dive Center was an excellent choice as well. We did 3 courses (AOWD, Nitrox, Deep Dive) and many fun dives. The crew is really great and we had some awesome dives at wrecks, the very nice house reef and of course also with dugongs. We can highly recommend the resort, it is one of the best we stayed in our numerous trips to the Philippines in the last 14 years.
