The diving course was great and Baz was a great instructor. All the staff at the resort were friendly and helpful. The diving sites were all very close. The only suggestion I would give would be to have the pool cleaned more often! ;)

Our group travelled from Canada to experience the diving in the Philippines. Our experience there was wonderful. All the staff was very helpful and friendly. I personally haven't been treated better by anyone in any of my travelling and diving vacations. The meals were good, rooms clean and well serviced. The diving team friendly and prepped us well for all... More

Blue Ribbon is not a big place, its not a 5-star hotel, nor is it the newest place in Sabang. Now that I have pointed out what its not, I will tell you what it is; the best place in Puerto Galera to dive. Having taken the AOW, Rescue, 6 specialty courses at BR, I find myself wishing I lived... More

We stayed 5 nights and completed our scuba certification with blue ribbon. The room was basic, but well priced and very clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant is extremely good. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Had dinner at the restaurant, excellent food and the staff were very kind and keen to offer top quality service. Had the frozen margaritas after which were perfect for the climate. The chillaxing chairs by the sea give a very relaxing way to enjoy small la Laguna - the hidden paradise of Puerto galera!

If you are not into diving there is little reason to go to Puerto Galera. One could only describe our bungalow as barely livable. Look elseware. On the positive side our breakfast server was sunshine and the the front desk was ok. The swimming pool looked suspect!

There is nothing 'flash' about this resort but has everything you need, with professional friendly staff from many different nationalities (Brit, Aus, US etc). Has its own restaurant that runs all day. All the food was good. Bar with a 2hr cocktail happy hour. Has a live band and BBQ buffet on Friday and Saturday nights with large selection of... More

The Blue Ribbon is a very nice resort in a quiet place. You can go diving or snorkeling next door. The music and food of the restaurant are very good. John has a lot of stories about music to share... under the bell ! Thanks John and all the team of the Blue Ribbon for your hospitality !
