We only stayed two full days in Coron so we had to choose from one of these tours. We already toured around the beautiful sights of Coron Island on our first day and we wanted to try and see what Palawan beaches are made of so we chose the Island Escapade Tour.
July 6, 2017
The best part about visiting Palawan (El Nido and Coron) is that their tours are already organized into groups, depending on the sights that you want to visit. You can just choose which tour you want and you can already see a lot of sights in one day.
I rarely write reviews about the hotels that we stayed in (maybe because they’re mostly just budget hotels lol) but The Funny Lion is definitely an exception! I felt that I needed to write about our experience here because we actually didn’t want to leave the hotel. lol
The check-in was a breeze. Their lobby was un-airconditioned and open, and it was just so refreshing to see such a sight. Nice hotels usually have airconditioned and high ceiling lobbies but The Funny Lion’s lobby was quite unique. I wasn’t able to take a photo of it because I only go there to connect to the wifi. lol (P.S. Their wifi is quite bad and there was no LTE signal inside our room.)
The hotel has two buildings, and this one is facing the pool. Our room was on the lower left side of the building in the photo below so it was really cool to have the pool just outside our room.
I played at the PFDA Ultimate Frisbee Nationals last May in Bacolod and an ultimate frisbee tournament always comes with a side trip. Right when we landed, we went straight to The Ruins. We rode a taxi to bring us to the Ruins and we paid Php 140 each for the taxi. There were 5 of us. The taxi driver just waited for us for an hour and dropped us off at our hotel after.
