From experience I know that there are much cheaper and much better accommodations around this area. Portofino has old rooms with ugly and uncomfortable linens, the bathrooms are on a very low standard or even under usual standards. The music was far too loud in the evening and when you sit outside, flies will attack you. The front view of... More

I made our booking through Action Divers as I was also taking my Advanced course with them. They recommended this place as it was beside them and hence convenient. Upon check in, the staff were very friendly and greeted us with a smile. We reserved the Premium Beachfront view apartment and the view and location did not disappoint. The view... More

If you like your privacy, don't get a room at this hotel. As you can see in one of my pictures, from the outside people have a perfect view of the inside of your room. The window blinds provide no coverage. I wouldn't have been so inspired to write my review had I not woken up in the middle of... More

Stayed over Christmas with 4 friends and a 2 year old, Acommodation really varies in the hotel and I think your experience really depends on the room you have. Our room was the most basic in the price range and had a damp smell and no balcony area or windows which didn't face the public walkway, which meant it was... More

The pool is great! That is really where the praise stops as the rest of the place is a bit of a let-down really. The signs of wear and tear are obvious and the condition of the room I had was relatively poor, considering that the price of the stay for our group of cyclists was not cheap. I had... More

We had great plans for our holiday accommodation and what was advertised was not what we got. Unit 31 ( Premium one bedroom beachfront) had a toilet that did not flush and when we told the management they said they would look for some parts in the morning and try and fix it! Even though we put up with that... More

It's been said by others and I agree, the whold Sabang/La Laguna Beach area is definitely for divers. The front desk staff and most of the bar/restaurant staff were friendly and helpful. There were a couple restaurant staff I think could take some smile training but aside from that definitely quite good overall. I stayed in two rooms during my... More

If you're not a diver, Sabang is likely not for you. If you're a diver, the room doesn't matter so much! Pros - Nice pool (small pool) and patio overlooking the ocean. We had breakfast here every morning and enjoyed our dive breaks here. Esther and Leann are the servers and they are lovely! - Close to our dive shop... More
