The room we had was alright. We found the bed a bit uncomfortable and it took us a few nights to find the right setting for the fan and aircon. When the weather is warmer I guess it will be easier to just turn on the AC. But for us with the cool weather it was hard to balance being... More

THANKS ;-) New beds being delivered Feb 2. ;-( Sorry they did not arrive before your stay. Warmer weather is coming too so you can use the AC ;-) Our dive crew is really the best aren't they! Lots of experience, expertise and enthusiasm. This is why we like having a small personal Dive Shop. So we can really have... More

Resort is nice, room is ok, and it is very well situated, staff is friendly. Dive instructor was very good, i felt very safe for my discovery dive! i expected a bit more from from the underwater of the dive spot, but it might be due to bad weather conditions at that time and it was only a discovery dive.

The accommodation was exactly what we needed, the staff were friendly and the diving was great. Located right on the water; it was a simple walk downstairs to the dive shop and the boat. My recommendation for the intermediate to advanced divers is to do Canyons; a fun and picturesque drift dive.

Having stayed at the Badladz Beach Resort I can vouch for the excellent value for money which Badladz offers. I dived with Badladz Dive Resort and the experience was extremely positive. I brought my own dive gear but the rental gear used by other divers was well-serviced and of excellent quality (Aqualung). The dives themselves were enjoyable (I thoroughly recommend... More

Gavin, our instructor, took us through all the details and what to expect when diving. We are very satisfied. He has the utmost respect for the environment and makes sure his divers know how to take care of it, and themselves. Thank you for a great time!

We spent 5 days diving with Badladz in Puerto Galera (my girlfriend did also PADI AOW meanwhile). We really loved the diving, amazing staff, food and the most important - free, working WiFi ;) I truly recommend Badladz if you plan to dive in Puerto Galera!
