The Funny Lion

Accommodation with attitude

Located a short drive from Coron Town, the Funny Lion is a bright contemporary hotel with a unique safari theme inspired by Coron's own Calauit Safari Park. 

After a busy day exploring Coron Island or enjoying the amazing local dive sites, why not unwind with a treatment at the Sea Tree Spa or enjoy a dip in the resort pool.

As the sun goes down the rooftop Pride Rock Deck boasts an impressive range of happy hour treats, so you can soak up the sunset views from the twin hotubs with a signature cocktail in hand.

When it comes to dining, Hunt restaurant offers a sumptuous array of favourite dishes with a contemporary Asian twist.

Thank you for your great customer service

London, United Kingdom

I wanted to say a huge thank you to the Funny Lion for thinking about their future customers and making their cancellation/refund process very easy and quick in light of everything that is going on in the world. Such honesty from the hotel, a caring attitude and absolutely no problem in refunding our money (unlike some other hotels and airlines sadly). We are absolutely gutted that we will not be staying with you in April but know that once this craziness is over we definitely will. See you soon....we hope!

Great place to stay on Coron

Auckland Central, New Zealand

The staff are wonderful. The hotel is a short hop out of the central town. The hotel has a tricycle service into town, takes about 5 min and getting back is about P100 in a local tricycle or a 30 min walk. Very safe walk but you might want torch for some of the walk home. Rooms are large and well appointed.The air conditioner a bit noisy at night, so bring earplugs We loved the small touches the hotel offer. Little drinks in the fridge every day, a free foot massage at the pool, all unexpected and appreciated. The pool was really nice. Not too warm or cold, just perfect. And lots of sunny and shady areas. The jewel of the hotel is the bar on the rooftop. Amazing views and good happy hour cocktails.

Food & Drink

Pride Rock Deck

The rooftop Pride Rock Deck boasts two hot tubs with spectacular views looking out towards the sunset and a selection of wines, spirits, speciality shakes, cocktails and coffees. Be sure to visit during happy hour where you can enjoy drink specials daily between 4:00 - 7:00 pm, what a perfect way to watch the Coron sunset.


This elegant restaurant whispers old world charm with its hard wood adorned walls and antique furniture, however the dining here is anything but stuffy. Enjoy mouthwatering contemporary cuisine with a distinctly Asian twist and be sure to indulge in the Saturday Grill buffet where you can sample the finest grilled dishes.
