I am currently living in Hanoi, Vietnam for two years, and have been traveling extensively throughout the Southeast Asia region. In April 2014 I was very fortunate to spend five days in Puerto Galera with friends, obtaining my open water PADI certification through the dive shop at La Laguna Beach Club. This was my very first trip to the Philippines... More

Family of 5 with three grown children, so we took Room 303 overlooking the water (2 queen beds plus paid for extra bed - still plenty of room). The pool table was fantastic with the whole upstairs area having a great outlook. A pleasant 2 night stay, we are not divers but love a snorkel and there were plenty of... More

I chose this resort because of the great reviews written here, hoping I will also experience it. To my disappointment, the only thing that happened in reality was a review about poor airconditioning unit of the rooms, which was totally true. During reservation, I specifically requested the rm 303 suite room because of the sea front view and balcony, the... More

The hotel is ok but they nickel and dime you to death. The worst part is the dive shop however. How this place got a PADI rating is a mystery. The lady who manages the dive shop does not seem to know anything about diving, scheduling or running a dive shop in general. With so many dive shops all along... More

I used to visit LLBC with my family, in the 1998-2006 timeframe. In fact, this is where they introduced me to scuba diving, and this where I got all my PADI certificates. I have been away, and used a different resort. For the Thai Songkran holiday, I decided to go back to LLBC - and it was wonderful to visit... More

This is the second time I have visited the resort. First time was back on September last year for 5 days. This time I was back to complete 2 TDI Tech courses... As normal staff and the management were great, especially Dono and Dave. Tech course instructor Mark Cox was a great teacher.

Fantastic experience. Accommodation first class, facilities the same, great for divers and none divers. All the staff are excellent and go out there way to make this an unforgettable holiday. Great dining experience at any time of the day.

I was torn between 3 and 4 star mainly due to the overly laid back dive center attitude. However, the hotel staff and room pushed it up to 4 stars. I have been diving in PG for years and my normal hotel/dive center was fully booked, so I took a chance by staying at LLBC. I must admit the hotel... More

Through the years LLBC has provided comfort and a certain adventure, in varying degrees. Depending on the season, your state of mind and the years that have grown on you. Unlike a lot of the resorts in the country, this is a mid range resort that provides better care, excellent grub and sub zero beer...even for breakfast.

I was torn between 3-4 star just because of the poor service. I had stayed here once before in 2010. I was the first person to stay in the new Deluxe Beach Wing. I was in 401 at that time. It was the only finished room in the new wing. Other than the construction noise I thought it was awesome... More
