We stayed at Blue Ribbon for 4 nights to complete our Advanced Open Water Certification and some fun dives. Chris and Baz were great instructors who made the extra effort to ensure we enjoyed our time while learning new skills. The diving around Puerto Galera is good for macro. We did see one turtle. The Alma Jane was a great... More

Excellent value for money. Accommodation: Great looking chalets. Clean comfortable places. I still remember the fresh smelling towels and sheets. It was nice to have a private deck, except that we sometimes smelled a sewage drain from outside the property. I think only a few units were close enough to be impacted by this. I had mixed feelings about the... More

We just returned from an 8 night stay at Blue Ribbon and I can't emphasis enough what an exceptional experience Ryan and I had diving with this group. Now, a bit of background, my husband and I have traveled to 112 countries over the past 36 years and have had so many incredible experiences. Diving with Blue Ribbon is in... More

I didn't stayed or dived here but had ate here for five times during my 6-day trip here. Their food is steadily good, reasonably priced (around 60% of Papa Fred's or Veranda, although I really like the latter) and service very friendly. Their pizza crust is thin and of high standard. I was there last night when they have the... More

The staff at Blue Ribbon is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and I had a hammock for my room! The resort restaurant services good food at a reasonable price. If you are diving, the dive staff is knowledgeable and professional- I had a great time. I will go back again soon.

Some friends and I stayed in the Resort one year ago, and had an incredible time. Last month, we went back to Puerto Galera, and for some reason, a friend suggested we try another resort, which we did, and which is pushing me to write this review, as there is clearly no better option in Puerto Galera then Blue Ribbon......

Stayed for five days. Room was clean and spacious. Good shower and a/c unit. Staff friendly and helpful. Amazing food - best sizzling pork sisig I've had in Philippines. Really generous portions. Dive gear was in good condition. Dive master Jeff was very professional. My only complaints was about the tea - 50 pesos for a cuppa! There were a... More

Stayed here 3 days to get my advanced open water. Rooms are ok, good value, although shower could use some extra water. Staff are very very friendly, and nothing is too much asked. Kitchen is great as well! The jungle gym is great for your early morning excersise! Jon, chris and marcus are best you can get as instructers.

Ms. Shirly, Ms. Dianne and Mr. Marcus was very accommodating! They answers your questions the best way they can.If your a romantic person and wants just to chill and relax. This is the place to be. One thousand six hundred, good for 4 is quite value. The scuba instructors were nice, friendly and funny. The view of the sabang bay... More
