I have just stayed at Blue Ribbon for 5 weeks doing my Dive Masters Course, i always stay here as the service is fantastic, diving is awesome and the staff are very good and attentive. I was made to feel very welcome as usual and virtually became part of the team, Baz's teaching was excellent and nothing was too much... More

Upon arrival I was greeted by a genuinely friendly staff. During my one month stay I experienced this from all staff members. Every Friday and Saturday is a homestyle BBQ and a live band which is a nice way to relax if you do not feel like going into the city. The in house food is also delicious and reasonably... More

Amazing long weekend at the end of September. Just showing up at Blue Ribbon for 3 days and 7 dives without planning in advance and you really feel home. Perfect dives and guides, friendly people and service. We love this place. One of the less places I recommend to friends to learn diving !

The hotel is very nice. The food is very good, a little expensive though. The choice is very big. The pool is clean. The whirlpool works and is open until 22:00. The rooms and the garden are nice built and maintained. The diving crew is friendly and professional. They know the diving spots very well, take care about sea live... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here last week for 3 days to celebrate our 10th year anniversary. We stayed in room number 6 just beside the pool. We had a memorable and wonderful experience! The room was big for the 2 of us and it has a terrace. The food was delicious and we were given a complimentary shot after... More

I have been here only 3 days. It was just awesome. Great place, food and diving experience. The diving instructors are professional and will show you one of the most beautiful diving spots in the Philippine Go there. It is awesome. You spend the day diving, chillaxing on the couch *in front* of the sea and enjoying food specialties. Unbeatable.

My colleague and I were in the Philippines on business, and when I learned he had just become a certified SCUBA diver, I said we had to hit Puerto Galera after our gig in Laguna. After spending some time online checking out the latest Sabang dive packages, I decided to go with the Blue Ribbon Dive Resort. Based largely on... More

We've spent 4 nights at the Blue Ribbon and we are missing it badly! When we arrived, the resort was kind of closed as they had a party (it was their anniversary). They asked us if we'd like to join them and we agreed. They picked us up and we went to a lovely beach and had barbecue, soft drinks... More

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
