This review is for Fishermen's Cove restaurant only, as I have not stayed in the hotel. Fisherman's Cove is located in Santa Nina, about 1 km outside of Puerto Galera town proper. To get there, you must have a motorbike or take a trike. The resort is Italian owned and operated and sits on a small cove. The good: the... More

Why do most foreigners think "nipa" style resorts are the best the Philippines has to offer. To a Filipino this is cheap "farm style" accommodation to be shared with all the insects and bugs that love nipa huts and bamboo. Plus Fisherman's Cove is not kept very clean, especially the bathrooms. I will agree the food was very good and... More

I was traveling solo on a dive trip to Puerto Galera & stayed 5 nights at Fisherman's Cove from 17-22 June 2014. The owner, Giuseppe ( he is a true Italian ), arranged for my pickup from Manila International Airport to Batangas & from there by a private boat to Puerto Galera. The connections went smoothly without any hitches. The... More

Lovely resort in a beautiful setting with excellent staff. We were picked up from the ferry on arrival in Puerto Galera by the owner Giuseppe for the five minute drive to the resort and from this point on we were made to feel welcome. By the time we had unpacked Giuseppe had prepared us lunch and then gave us a... More

I have been, again, in Fiehermens Cove. Giuseppe and his team are always ready to satisfy every single need, with a huge smile on their face. Excelent dining and food experience, genuine and abundant Italian food - seafood in most of cases. Rooms are neat and tidy, spacious with big bathroom, nothing luxury but very comfortable, service and cleaning are... More

My friend and I just happened to stumble upon this place in the low season and we were able to stay in one of their nice rooms for a night for a reasonable price. The rooms were clean and all had a nice harbor of your tropical paradise. The only thing I found lacking was there was no small fridge.... More

This lovely resort lies in a small cove just 5 minutes from the Muelle Pier in Puerto Galera. Giuseppe, the owner and his wife Sandra will pamper you, in particular your palate. This is one of the very few resorts in the Philippines where you will get three delicious meals a day prepared in an authentic Italian cuisine. Try the... More
