Hotel was empty... so not much noise from guests except when some Chinese guests arrived later... and that is the fault of Chinese... More

this Hotel is in the middle of Sabang and very close to local bars and restaurants. It is a nice place for family to stay with a great kitchen and very friendly staff. All the rooms been newly refurbished and have everything you need. I will stay again there on my next visit to Sabang Puerto Galera.

We spent a week in Sabang for our most recent dive trip. We didnt stay at the resort but opted to stay in the economy rooms located at the dive shop. The rooms at the shop are very clean and are always maintained to a high standard. They are currently remodeling to make more rooms but the construction did not... More

Clean and decent hotel, owned and managed by Europeans so they know what quality means. Great staff. Convenient location from the beach which is not ideal for swimming, but the view is gorgeous. Close to restaurants and clubs. I would recommend White Beach which is about 8 kms away for a more family-friendly atmosphere. Mermaid Resort made my vacation a... More

On seeing the resort I was a little disappointed as one got the impression it looked over the water. Our penthouse suite looked over a bunch of tin roofs with a tiny bit of water to be seen in between. The balcony was a generous size with a Jacuzzi when it worked. The room itself was very small and didn't... More

First time traveller to Puerto Galera. Our room beside the pool was very clean, restful and welcoming. Staff were friendly and accommodating. It was lovely to swim in the pool after a big day travelling and sightseeing. The dive resort has excellent management, equipment and facilities, nothing was left to chance. All equipment was labelled and placed in baskets with... More

Whenever I stay in Puerto Galera, I choose this resort. All staff is very familiar and friendly. The restaurant serves good meals even many kinds of menu. The rooms and facilities are kept neat always and we can get enough volume of water in the bathroom that makes us refreshed after diving. It's also convenient for traveler to settle room... More
