I stayed at Badladz Beach Resort (the sister resort, reviewed separately) and did my diving with Badladz Dive Resort. I was extremely impressed with the dive centre and would not hesitate to enthusiastically recommend it to anyone wanting to dive around Puerto Galera. I did 13 dives during my stay, including a night dive and a day trip to Verde... More

My girlfriend and I spent just over 2 weeks in various locations in the Philippines going diving almost every day. In our second week we headed for Mindoro and ended up in Puerto Galera. We had previously dived with a company out of Sabang and Badladz had far better equipment, the best divemasters we encountered on the trip and good... More

We had two diving experience with Badladz and have to say both were awesome. The first was fun dives for three during the first weekend of July '14 and the second was PADI Advanced dive course for two. On both occasions, Gavin from the diveshop was efficient in sorting out arrangements for us, right down to getting proper weights for... More

I've been bouncing back and forth between Badladz Beach Resort and the Dive resort for about 7 months total by the time I leave. I've just been working and relaxing and living it up the entire time! I love both places. Both have amazing sunrise views, and all kinds of adventures right outside your door, like diving, beaches, a beautiful... More

I stayed at Badladz resort on 19 July 2014, it was the rainy season yet I was still able to get 4 dives in, in only a day and a half on the island, I really appreciate the fact that they are willing to take you out diving even if you are a solo diver which in my case was... More

Don't be put off by 4 out of 5 stars, I'm a tough critic. Badladz Dive Resort is a simple hotel with a great staff and dive shop. The resort is quietly tucked into Puerto Galera right next to the ferry dock. The rooms are simple but very quiet. The restaurant was really pretty good and I ate most of... More

Really enjoyed my stay in Badladz Beach Resort. It offer clean small rooms (with AC) in reasonable price. It was very quiet there, but TV program and other activities can be heard from other room though. Personnel very friendly and helpful. I attended Open Water Scuba Diving course organised by Badladz. Everything went conveniently and professionally. Gavin is excellent scuba... More

Impeccable service from the hotel staff and the crew at the diving shop. The rooms are simple but comfortable. The Mexican restaurant is more than adequate and serves generous portions for a very fair price. It's the ideal place for divers on budget.
