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

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

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

we had stayed at the Mermaid for 5 days and i can say that it was an awesome experience for me. Staff are very accommodating and food are great. We did hidden treasure trip and snorkeling which i enjoy it very much. If you are a diver looking for a nice place to dive, i recommend you this place.

Because as ive said resorts are over crowded and some of the rooms located... More
