El Galeon and Asia Divers is my favorite diving resort. The rooms are average, but the staff is wonderful. We have stayed once in the Oceanview room, but our 3 other visits have been in the poolside rooms. The Oceanview rooms are wonderful. Great view, but the climb up at night was too much for us. We ended up packing... More

El Galleon Resort and Asia Divers provide top notch accommodations and customer service. The dive center is wonderfully designed with a focus on making each diver's experience a fluid, excellent one. The instructors and dive guides at Asia Divers are some of the best in the business and the owner Allan Nash is ever present, with an attention to detail... More

"Expensive" was the answer when I asked my 16 year old how his dinner was New Year's Eve. Lovely setting and intensely focused service. Steaks, seafood and salads. I had many more interesting meals in Costa Rica but we were so happy to have a table and a nice meal on New Year's Eve.

We booked here on recommendation from friends as a good diving place. My two teenage daughters dove daily and loved the location of the sites - minutes from the resort. Asia divers is a well organized and equipped outfit. They have a beautiful large dock from which they operate and many boats. Our hotel room was clean and basic. Comfortable... More

Resort staff attentive and helpful. Rooms quiet and clean. Food very good and reasonably priced, Competent and helpful staff for diving with unexperienced divers. Dive shop has complete diving facilities and divemasters give good instructions, experienced, and nurturing. We travelled as family of 5 and all enjoyed!

We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is a great location just outside of Sabang. We stayed in a basic room which was comfortable and clean. This is a great hotel to stay in if you plan to dive, very well organised offering up to 5 dives a day. There's a bar set up on the pier at sunset along... More

I think you have to keep in mind the kind of place you are going to when you think about going to Puerto Galero for diving. The resorts are going to be pretty standard diving/beach kind of resorts; not 5 star establishments. This resort was very comfortable for us and ranks high on our list of similar places. This mine...

Came back here after 14 years and it's still offering nice rooms a short walk from the diving. If you are a serious diver, Asia Divers is the place to dive and this is the place to stay. If not diving, you may find this beach a bit congested and thhere are prettier parts of the coast, but for diving... More
