And since you’d be having your time on the beautiful island of Coron, that also means you need an accommodation that is fit for your budget and won’t compromise comfort.
We found Coron Soleil Express Hotel to do that particular job that we travelers and couple travelers require.

Coron Soleil Express Hotel Room Review
Our first night was booked at Room 305 (Deluxe Room) of the Coron Soleil Express Hotel. The room is equipped with a flat-screen TV with cable channels, Wi-Fi, a seating area, a queen-sized bed, a shower room with hot and cold shower and complete toiletries, most of all, it’s clean. Here’s a short video of our room.
The Deluxe Room’s size is reasonable for its price. The ambiance is cozy and intimate and is just perfect for couples who are strict with the budget. The bed is remarkably comfortable. The wi-fi, however, is quite so-so. We personally don’t expect a 4G signal at Coron so that wasn’t a problem. Though, if you are working remotely and needs a strong wifi connection, I cannot advise using the in-room wi-fi. You’d have to go outside and look for a better signal to keep your work going or use their connection at the lobby entrance.
But with these amenities at hand, you’d really be getting the most out of your money during your stay. Truly a value for money, a bang for your buck.
