The Funny Lion: A Hotel Review

The Funny Lion is a contemporary boutique resort on Coron, Palawan. The hotel features three room types and has a total of thirty-two rooms. The Funny Lion also became the landing point for a small group of fellow bloggers who had just finished TBEX.

The hotel is modern, stylish and has a young energy to it. The restaurant is also one of the best in town, and even those not staying at the property visit just to dine there.

My favorite part of the hotel was the pool, which is almost always my favorite part of any property I visit. The Funny Lion has a gorgeous infinity pool, and situated directly next to the pool is a large jacuzzi hot tub. Both overlook a cove of mangroves. This blending of modern and nature creates a perfectly peaceful setting.

The rooms are large and comfortable. If you’re able to book a poolside room, I recommend doing so. It was so nice to open my door every morning to have the gorgeous pool only steps away.

I know I said the pool is usually my favorite part of a hotel, but if you know me at all, you know that’s not entirely accurate. The Funny Lion has one of the best restaurants in town, and it gave the hotel’s pool a run for its money.

The Hunt Restaurant’s impressive menu features Asian fusion dishes, has many fresh seafood options, and the Saturday night grill buffet is quite popular.  I was able to try several dishes during my stay and was impressed by each of them.

The restaurant will even deliver drinks and meals poolside to your sun bed if you don’t want to interrupt your sunbathing.

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Funny Lion, and I will definitely return. My only initial hesitation was that the venue is located a bit outside of town, but the property handles this setback by having transportation waiting constantly outside the hotel. The cost for a ride: 10 pesos/.50 USD. If you prefer, the staff can even arrange to have transportation waiting for you in advance. My only initial cause for concern turned out to be a complete non-issue.

This looks like an amazing place to stay. I didn't make it to Coron when I was in the Philippines, only got as far as E Nido! If I did come back i would definitely try and stay here!

Wow. Looks amazing. I am not into pools, but I understand why you liked it. The view is beautiful. And I really like the nice room. It is not often, you can have a good meal in a hotel, so that i really a plus. Overall it looks really nice.

Looks like a very relaxing place. Coron is starting to get busier. I was there in 2015 and even thought about buying a property. This is definitely upscale.

It is really relaxing! It was a struggle to want to go into town. I was there in 2015 also and I can tell it's changing. I'm glad to have gone when I did.

I don't think I would ever be able to leave the poolside! It looks incredible! And the fact that they deliver food to you is also a bonus, since the food looks very yummy too. I did have to look up where Coron, Palawan is, but if I ever make it to the Philippines I'll have to keep this place in mind!
