My summer officially kicked-off a few weeks ago with a big trip to the Isla del Fuego (Island of Fire), popularly known as Siquijor. I already posted my travel itinerary as well as the details of my expenses last week. Now, it is time for the review of the resort where we stayed for three nights - the Coral Cay Resort.
The resort is located in the town of San Juan, where many other resorts are located. Before booking this resort, we read a few reviews and we (especially my husband) were kinda apprehensive about this resort due to the mixed reviews online. Some love the resort while some simply don’t like the beach, the ambiance and one tourist even said that the resort’s bar/restaurant is not ideal for family dinners since it is "full of loud and drunk American sex tourists with their Filipino girlfriends hanging on their arms".
RoomsWe stayed at Layo during the whole duration of our trip. Layo is a fan room (no air conditioner), with two double beds good for four people but can accommodate extra person for an additional charge. It also has a private toilet and bath with hot and cold shower. It also has a veranda where you can see the beach (although not facing it) and the swimming pool area. One night stay costs Php 1700 and Php 350 for extra person with beddings.
The room is spacious enough for four or even five people. The toilet/bath is okay as well except for the door which was kinda difficult to lock. I think changing the door knob will do the trick. The beds are okay too - not too soft and not hard either, however, the pillows are too thin and soft for my liking. The beds come with mosquito nets too. When we arrived at the resort, the mosquito net is already set up and everyday when we come back from our tours/activities, they are made up again along with the bed and used towels are replaced with new ones. The toilet/bath is cleaned everyday too.
