I stayed at El Galleon back in Feb 2012 as a last minute decision to accompany a fellow diver on a dive trip. My dive buddy had pretty much arranged everything due tio him having stayed here a few times before. I can with no preconceptions for what would be my first trip to the Philippines. We arrive quite late... More

We had a group trip there in 2013 and I must say it was fantastic. The staff in the hotel were great, this with the dive crew made the trip well worth doing. The diving itself was a solid 8/10 with so much to see and photograph that the whole group will be going back in 2015. The Point bar... More

We came back to El Galleon and Asia divers at Puerto Galera knowing we will be looked after. We were not let down! We lead a group of 11 divers this time and every one loved it. The resort is soo friendly, rooms clean and well appointed and meals are extensive to suit anyone's needs. We also loved the Scuba... More

I went with a group of 11 divers to the El Galleon resort for 7 days. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well maintained. The food was good and not expensive with a fairly large menu. But the highlight of our stay was the diving.We did 3 dives a day on Nitrox and could have done 4. The dive crew... More

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

Renowned for its serene and quaint beachfront surroundings fronting Small La Laguna Beach, Puerto Galera, Asia Divers and El Galleon Beach Resort and have thirty air-conditioned rooms that blend into the tropical hillside. Majestic views of Sabang Bay and Small Lalaguna Beach, with a restaurant which extends to the water’s edge offering a great value in European and local cuisine, a small pool for learning how to dive, spa, and all the hotel amenities and necessities one needs to totally enjoy his/her stay. The dive facility is less than a year old and there is nothing like it in Asia!

Divers have their own crate for storage in a spacious area, a dedicated camera room; you are well looked after by the crew who are there to help you with anything you may need. ... more   less
