5 days and 4 nights Coron, Palawan Travel. Almost a week stay in Coron will be enough to cover the best tourists spots. Definitely one of our dream destinations fulfilled. Coron, Palawan best tourist spots are Kayangan Lake, Twin Lagoon, Calauit Safari, Mt. Tapyas , Maquinit Hot Spring, Malcapuya Island, Skeleton Wreck, Bulog Dos Island and more.

We had two accommodation for our trip, first we prefer lodge or cheaper hotel for our first 4 days for a cheaper price and a luxurious hotel for the last day to relax and unwind after a jam packed days of touring. I am the one who did all the reservations so here are the details of our Coron Trip:

Accomodation:
1. Balaibinda Lodge (4 days and 3 nights)
location: 22 Don Pedro St. Barangay 3, Coron, Palawan, Philippines, 5316

They have 6 kinds of room to choose from:

  • Roadside Queen Room
  • Courtyard Deluxe with 1 Queen Bed
  • Courtyard Triple Room
  • Superior Family Room (good for 6 persons)
  • Courtyard Queen
  • Roofdeck Triple

I found and booked the lodge in Agoda and at first I did get a Roadside Queen room since it’s the cheaper of all rooms. The hotel said that the room opens up to a busy main road. Street sounds may be heard inside the room even with closed door and windows. So i decided to change it to Courtyard Queen. Since the quiet rooms are in the Courtyard which is only available thru direct booking with the hotel and they cannot use my Agoda booking to reserve other room types. Upgrading to a Courtyard room using my Agoda booking will cost me more and is subject to room availability upon arrival. So i stick to my booking i made and actually it’s not that bad since we will just stay in the hotel at night.

Airport transfers is not required to avail in the hotel but will definitely save your time upon arriving when you avail it since the Coron Town Proper is more or less 22.2 kilometers from the airport.

By the way transfers are also available outside the airport but to less the hassle of looking I already included it to our hotel booking. Don’t worry, if you’re asking the price difference they have a standard rate of ₱150 per person per way (shared van).

Our room reservation is inclusive of daily plated breakfast for each actual paying checked-in guest. Breakfast is served at the hotel dining area 6:30-9:30 a.m. daily. It may not be packed for tours. They will ask you for your preferred breakfast from their menu upon arrival at the hotel.

Total Price of our reservation for two for 4 days and 3 night is P6,429.16 (Included in price: Tax 12%, Service Charge 10%) Payment for the transfer can be made at the hotel before checkout.
