The Funny Lion Hotel Coron – Location

The Funny Lion is located at Coron Town on Busuanga Island in the Coron area of Palawan.

The domestic airport is only 16.8 kilometers away and can be easily accessed with the hotel’s airport shuttle.

All attractions, like the Mount Tapyas and the departure points for diving and island hopping tours, are very close.

A tricycle to the center of Coron Town only takes about 7 minutes and costs 25 Pesos (about 0.5 USD) per person.

Room Experience The Funny Lion

The Funny Lion Hotel Coron has three different room categories; cub room, king room, and pride room.

I stayed in the pride room. It is very spacious with a size of 25 square meters and has one comfortable king bed. I liked how the room was furnished, and I felt at ease.

The Food at The Funny Lion

The Funny Lion offers a wide range of food. Breakfast is served in a buffet with muesli, bread, ham and cheese, fruit juices, a Philippine breakfast, and waffles. 

There is also a cooking station where you can order omelets.

Lunch and dinner are á la carte. You can choose amongst other pizza, seafood dishes, salads, or meat dishes. I tried the following dishes during my stay.

Shrimp ala Plancha: Pan-fried fresh Busuanga shrimp smothered with chili butter sauce, spring onion, and fried garlic.


Safari Garden Salad: Al fresco greens loaded with chicken, egg, and bacon tossed in citrus vinaigrette with crunchy peanut brittle.


Hunter’s Pizza: Pizza crust with parma ham, tomato sauce, and mozzarella cheese.


Cashew Crusted Prawns: Saltwater tiger prawns topped with cashew butter crust then baked until golden and served with garden greens with dalandan vinaigrette.


I liked the food and the attentive service. For your dinner, I recommend a table outside next to the pool.

You can either sit inside or outside next to the pool.
