I spent my 2015 new year at blue ribbon. The location is beautiful, on what I found as the more secluded part of Puerto Galera, so be prepared to walk a bit to the main area. But if you like some seclusion and less people bothering you, this is a nice area. Food wise it is standard, mostly western. Restaurants... More

Stay there for 3 nights, will not say is bad but condition of the bathroom could be better. Food at the restaurant is not impressive at all and service at the dive shop is not as excellent as I want it to be as they do expect you to DIY on your gear, maybe I am a little spoiled by... More

My wife completed her PADI open water course here and I took a couple of fun dives. The dive instructors both local and international were superb. Extremely professional and patient. The price was significantly lower than most other places, but the service and equipment were all of a very high standard. Everyone was really friendly. The dive sites were excellent... More

You get what you pay for and they are honest about it. Basic accommodation, garden, small pool and thankfully no loud dance music blaring away whole night long. occasionally we did have septic smell coming through the restaurant. The mosquitoes were annoying - it was tough hanging out in the gardens, the patio, hammock or even inside our rooms with... More

Extended our stay 3 times. First time because I liked the place. Second time because the other half decided to finish a glass of fresh mango juice left out in the sun all day, third time because conditions were good to dive Verde Island. Last (third) dive on Verde Island, called "the washing machine": Blue Ringed Octopus.... check the picture...... More

I have had a wonderful experience at Blue Ribbon dive Resort; I spent almost two months at the resort doing my divemaster. I can't say enought about the place. Great dives, great staff, great management, great equipment and great accomodation. Everything there is just perfect to enjoy fun dives and all type of courses. From day one to the last... More

My group and i (Bruneian and Malaysian divers) came to Puerto Galera on 28th Dec 2014- 1st Jan 2015. I have been to 5 dive trips and this was my 6th dive trip. To be honest, this is the CHEAPEST among ALL. It's also value for money. 1. Sleep, Shower & Food. Nothing fancy, rooms are very simple, clean. I... More

I stayed at Blue Ribbon based upon a recommendation from a good friend who lives locally. Blue Ribbon does not claim to be a 5 start hotel, and to be fair it is not, however if you are after a quality dive experience, great food, and really good service you should check this out! The resort is part hotel and... More

During a business trip to Manila I decided to make an effort and try diving on my weekend off. I selected this resort based on the trip adviser ratings which were very accurate. This is not a 5 Star resort but it does try very hard to make everyone welcome with excellent service, great food and although the rooms are... More
