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

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.
