This seems like the type of resort frequented by the same guests and old timers through out the year. However, as my boyfriend and I were looking for a last-minute place to stay for the weekend, it was our first time at the El Galleon and were comforted by the warm reviews. BAD IDEA. The moment we got here, the... More

Let me preface this review by saying I booked this place as a last minute getaway for the weekend and I'm not a diver. Maybe this is where I went wrong. So if you are a diver maybe this place will appeal to you. The best part about this place is the staff. They are super super friendly and helpful.... More

The place is well maintain, clean rooms, nice bathroom and the food is just excellent for a very moderate price. Staff are very nice. it is not a place for party it is a place to relax between friend or family. A bit away from Sabang girly bars it is very quiet and if you dive at Asia divers it... More

Stayed here over the new year period which was great as it was very lively and loads of people to meet. We found the rooms quite basic though and we were expecting more for the price. Maybe it was high because of the peak time of year but we had much better value elsewhere throughout the Philippines before and after... More

The hotel has rather larg territory including pool, restaurant, bar and own pier. Personnel is very friendly and helpful. Bad thing is inside rooms. They are equipped by old air conditioners and fridges, so all time you have to hear that terrible sounds. It's obvious that capital repair was long ago.

Great dinner... Reasonably priced, massive meals so if you are hungry... Come here... The menu has a wide variety but we felt like Italian and we had a vegetarian pizza cooked as good as I would expect on Lygon st in Melbourne and a Seafood medoly fettuccine along with a chicken korma just because we could.... Staff were very very... More

I've been to another "high end" resort there as well as in other destinations in the Philippines. This resort rates right up there at the top and is very professionally run. The rooms are situated around the property and I had the Seaview room directly above the restaurant area. Very clean and comfortable. The food was very tasty, a large... More

Excellent experience! We organized a trip for two families and some singles. El Galleon was able to accommodate us exceptionally well. Anie was an excellent front desk staffer that took care of our whole trip. Very pleasant and professional. The rooms are quirky and make you feel like you are living in a tree house. Until you open, and they... More

El Galleon is nice resort operating in conjunction with Asia Divers which seems to have the best dive operation in Sabang Beach currently. Having been all over the world and staying at all different levels of hotels this place is Average. It has good points and bad points. The good points are: the rooms are clean and well furnished for... More

This review has been a while coming so I'll do my best to condense many visits to this resort into one review. Put simply El Galleon is outstanding. Spend the extra few dollars & get a room with a view. There's a few steps but the views over Sabang bay are worth it. Try the penthouse with it's own entertaining... More
