This is an incredible place for scuba divers.Great diving,incredible staff,and an all around wonderful resort.They make you feel like family.The only downside was having to leave.A must for divers.If you choose the scenic rooms just be prepared for the climb.I would recommend this resort to anyone.

A little overpriced and tries to compensate with the view to the sea. rooms are nice and adequate but needs some serious attention towards the washrooms including showers and w/c. The major plus point is the view to the sea but to compete with other options near by such as Red Sun, management needs to focus. staff is nice and... More

Bad service and uncourteous staff. Most of the time, the staffs are all pooled together near the reception/ bar area watching TV and chatting among themselves. There bugs and mosquitos all over. Beds are itchy, the CR is really BAD. They don't change beddings and they don't clean the room. We were both traumatized by this resort experience, no way... More

I personally love El Galleon. However to write an honest review that will help you choose the right place for you. I have to give it a 3 star rating. The rooms are kept very clean. They are simple rooms with a foam bed that is not very comfortable. The shower is hot but the shower head is out dated... More

Located just a 2.5 hour drive (assuming no traffic) and a 1.5 hour boat ride south of Manila Puerto Galera offers some of the best diving near Manila along with a host of other activaties including; hiking, kayaking, waterfalls, and more. The island's beach areas have been turned into a turist hotspot with many bars, restaurants, and dive shops trying... More

Incredibly gracious staff - a great thank you to them, they're one of the best aspects of this place. The hotel itself has a relaxing terrace area overlooking the sea. As far as I can tell, its one of the better places to stay in a Sabang. I walked the area and there's really only three or so resorts here... More

Hotel was about 10 mins walking distance away from Sabang Pier. There's no pathway at some parts and you would need to walk along the beach. Lugging your luggage along would be difficult. Porters avail for about 100 pesos. If you have numerous bags, a 200 pesos boat ride would be easier. Check-in was a breeze. Staff were generally friendly.... More
