The Two Seasons Coron Bayside Hotel is a great 4-star property that offers a unique and authentic hotel experience. Although not a beach resort, guests can still enjoy the magnificent views of the sea. It is perfect for couples, families and friends who prefer to be close to everything and easily experience the best tours and attractions Coron has to offer.
Once you enter the hotel lobby, you will be greeted by a stunning view of Coron Bay. The hotel’s interiors are inspired by underwater world, which is what Coron is known for. Here, you will find thoughtful details like an old anchor, antique dive helmets and artificial corals with blue lighting making the overall ambiance very soothing.
Offering 48 spacious and well-appointed rooms and suites, Two Seasons Bayside Hotel is less than 30 minutes away from town center. It has a very strategic location as it is very close to all the tourist spots and you can easily go into town to look for restaurant options. Compared to its sister resort, Two Seasons Island Resort and Spa, here it’s much easier and cheaper to enjoy the popular tours. This makes Bayside a great choice if you want to be close to everything but still enjoy a vacation in style.
The staff of Two Seasons Bayside Hotel are all attentive, friendly and warm. They are always happy to serve and they work hard to efficiently cater to their guests’ needs. During peak times though, service may be slow especially in the restaurant but other than that their service quality is excellent.
The design is a mixture of modern and tropical which is very relaxing and reflective of an island vibe. There is daily housekeeping available in the hotel. The surroundings and public areas are all cleaned and maintained properly. Since the hotel is brand new everything is in working well and should not encounter any issues.
The rooms and suites are very well-designed, spacious, and complete with luxurious amenities. The bathrooms are modern and very functional. But what really stand out are the suites because they take advantage of the magnificent sea views. The panoramic glass windows are perfect for taking in the sweeping views.
There is no beach at this property only the views of the bay which is really not bad at all. However, if you prefer to lounge at the shore and sunbathe on the sand, then the sister resort is the better choice. The infinity pool is very welcoming but it is quite small for a hotel this size and the water is not that clear so that is a point for improvement.
There is no better location than this hotel. It is far enough from the city center so it is quiet but close enough to all tourist spots in Coron. If you want to go to a different restaurant, you just need to hire a local transport and you can easily go anywhere. The hotel is also the jump-off point to other nearby islands including the secluded Bulalacao Island where the sister-resort is located.
Two Seasons Bayside Hotel is one of the very few high-end hotels in Coron Town. It is the only hotel that is worth your money if you do not prefer a beach resort or a boutique hotel. It is also a lot cheaper compared to its sister resort. Although you cannot enjoy exclusivity and beach here, it is still an excellent choice because you can get more for your money and you are close to everything.
Aside from the aforementioned facilities, Bayside also offers a souvenir shop, a conference room that can fit 130 people, 24-hour security and reception desk, free parking, and complimentary Wi-Fi access in all the rooms and public areas of the hotel. With Coron’s tourism industry still being so under-developed, there isn’t any other hotel nearby which even comes close to the amount and quality of facilities offered at this resort.
Two Seasons Coron Bayside Hotel is one of the best-rated hotels in Coron. It was opened to public in 2017 but the reviews are much greater in number compared to its sister resort. In TripAdvisor, there are 236 reviews and the overall score is at 4.5, which is excellent. 62% of reviewers gave it an excellent score while 4% gave it a low score. In Booking.com, the total average score is 8.8 with 536 reviews. Finally, Agoda.com has a slightly higher score at 8.9 with 219 reviews of which 95% said they will recommend it to their family and friends.
The Bayside enjoys a slightly higher score in most of the travel platforms compared to its sister resort which is a private island resort. We would like to think that the reason for that is because guests pay significantly lower prices in Bayside than on the Island and so they get more for their money in terms of tours and easy access to other places and restaurants.
Positive comments online are focused on the service, the rooms, the views, the location and the food. Guests complimented how warm and friendly the staff were. They loved that the rooms are spacious and modern and has complete amenities like TV and IPod docking stations. The Wi-Fi in all the rooms is also fast and reliable. They definitely loved the food and how tasty the pizzas and sisigs were.
Negative comments are just minor and can be easily improved like the slightly cloudy water in the pool, not replenishing the food trays in the restaurant right away, the inaccessibility of the Skydeck, and some instances of miscommunication. Surprisingly, even though there is no beach at the property, there weren’t any complaints about it really.
