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

Dive briefing were thorough, the dive guides know the dive sites to every detail, equipment is in great conditions, the service is amazing. Dive sites over the week offered a great variety from drift dives to... 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

El Galleon Beach Resort, Puerto Galera, I wasn't expecting a chrome & steel Hyatt so wasn't disappointed with the resort. It maybe old and built in local style not pre-cast concrete. but everything worked, beds comfortable and screens kept any bugs out. Wall mounted Air con units a bit old and noisy but cooled the room and we didn't need... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at El Galleon, our room was simple but very clean with nice view. Loved the walk in closet and the sound of the ocean in the morning. The restaurant staff is very attentive and nice. Asia Divers has a great set up, nice equipment area and nice boats, the jetty is a huge plus. The... More

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
