A nice way to enjoy Puerto Galera is at the Mermaid Resort. After getting off the ferry, Mermaid Resort is just within walking distance of the docking area in Puerto Galera. The rooms were clean and spacious. The mini bar had an excellent variety of options. The outside of the hotel was nice and aesthetic. Staff were nice and friendly.... More

The Mermaid resort is a great Sabang place for all those who want to do enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the beach and SCUBA diving. The associated dive shop to the Mermaid is only 7 minutes by walking and is in top shape. The name of the Resort comes from the the "Little Mermaid" the Copenhagen tourist attraction. The Mermaid...

I was so amazed at how big the duluxe room... More

Spent one night here in Oct 2014. Nice room with modern decoration, a comfortable stay here. About 5 to 10 mins walk from the pier. WiFi is strong in the room, hotel staff are nice and friendly. But don't expect too much in the pool

Small rooms, tiny bathrooms, and poor air-conditioning, for the price they charge, no worth at al, simple advise,stay away. i will not recommend this hotel as every things expensive but low quality, cut a long story short, look else where. Very bad attitude as if we are staying for free.

I should have reviewed this room over a year ago but haven't for simple reason. I did not want to compete with other travelers for the Penthouse room here. I've been traveling to and staying at Sabang beach, Puerto Galera Philippines for last year and half and stayed at or looked at almost all the rooms available and my favorite... More

The diving from Puerto Galera is world class. Verde Island is about an hour's boat ride away and it is home to some of the most diverse reefs on the planet. A superb nearby site is called The Canyons, and it is filled with soft corals and reef fish. This is why I choose to spend a week in Puerto... More
