Just imagine... You are willing to spend nice holidays, having fun and relax. The hotel is well maintained, no big issues, rooms are clean. Rooms are just facing noisy night bars and Sabang main road. No rest possible. 85dB right by the pool! Of course, as you can not imagine that before. The owner just did not forget its wonderful...

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

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.

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
