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

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
