I recently spent 2 weeks in Puerto Galera and was referred to Badladz by a friend - and he was right on the money! While I stayed at the Badladz Beach Resort (a few minutes tricycle ride or walk away), I did my dives with Gavin & Paul at Badladz Dive Resort and was nothing but happy with them! The... More

We had 4 nights staying at Badladz Beach Resort and 3 mornings diving. This is a review of the diving and dive resort bar. The service that we had from Gavin (answering emails and sorting everything out for us), Morris our dive master (just for the two of us) and the boatman was excellent. We felt safe, well briefed and... More

I arrived at Badladz terrified of the water, swimming and scuba - but determined to overcome that so I could enjoy my wife's hobby (she's advanced with over 200 dives). Everyone at the resort was very sensitive to my very personal issues and helped me along every step of the way. I feel so close to them now as my... More
