“Magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

I wanted a place away from White Beach or Sabang, yet close to all the diving and beaches. So I chose The Manor. I can confirm that this is the most unique and stunning property in Puerto Galera. The luxury for value was fantastic, the service was great, and their diving and spa people are top notch. I will be coming back next year for two weeks and will stay in one of the suites, it is worth the extra money!

The Manor at Puerto Galera is perfect for people to relax and unwind. I can say its one of the best hotels we ever stayed in all my travel experiences. Upon arriving at the hotel, you can already tell why it has a high rating here in TripAdvisor. The view of the bay is breath taking, the place most relaxing and service is really great. Its perfect for people wanting to unwind and relax, away from all the hustle of the city. I had the best sleep in months in this place, the place is so quiet and tranquil. The food is excellent, from the free complimentary breakfast to the main courses, no need to go out to other restaurants. I'm not really a guy who likes painting but the art decorations especially in the lobby is a nice addition. One of the things we always look out for in a place to stay is the Wi-Fi connection since my work requires me to always stay online, and The Manor's wireless internet connection was good enough.

Me and my partner stayed for two nights and would definitely extend our stay if not due to my limited time for this quick vacation. The only reason I'm not giving a perfect 5 rating is because the beach is too far from the hotel itself (about 10 mins walk), and the walk back is kinda difficult because its uphill.

Room Tip: Get the rooms facing the Bay for the best view

Within minutes of arriving we extended our stay from 4 days to 8! Kinda sums up this review!

We 'splashed out' on the best room in the house . . . . . . .OK, I lie . . . . . . .we only spent 5,000 Peso's a night on the best room in the hotel and it is an absolute steal.

Loved the comfort and views to die for. Ms Em is a gem.

The best recommendation of a hotel is deciding if you would ever go back. Well - if we ever visit Puerto Galera again there is nowhere else I'd stay. Luxury at rock-bottom prices.

Room Tip: Has to be The Presidential Suite - superb.

The hardware at The Manor is almost 5 Star but the rest of the hotel, sadly, doesn't, in my opinion, even rate 3 stars.
The building is splendid and unique. When I did my research I found that it was built in 2008 as a time-share property. It seems to have been for sale, as a whole, ever since. The views from most of the rooms are superb but there's a price to pay: The Manor is located on top of a hill and must be accessed by what can only be described as a "goat track". In and around the property there are A LOT of stairs. The whole place is very nicely furnished and features some weird and wonderful art objects (NOT a good place for kids to run about in).
Our room was blessed with a great view but a bathroom designed for stick men with a drain that flooded and a hot water supply that took 5-10 minutes to work. And the only way to contact the front desk, apart from negotating dozens of stairs, was by texting the manager.
The gardens are nice but the main "infinity" pool seems to have lost its "infinity" edge some time ago. We took lunch on the terrace (which also seems to be the restaurant). Not a bad sandwich and fries but no wine list and just the dregs of a bottle of cheap Chardonnay or a bottle of Spanish plonk to choose from. We decided to go to Sabang for dinner - a most unpleasant journey.
We slept well - the place is as quiet as a monastery (honeymooners take note) and tried the free, cooked breakfast, It was substantial but had me throwing up violently 4 hours later - and I'd had nothing else to eat in between.
If you desire 4-5 Star hardware and splendid isolation, The Manor is for you. But for an ideal, beach location, with great food and lots going on nearby there are much better places to choose in Puerto Galera.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room - particularly the bathroom - before you check in.

My wife and I just spent a great weekend surrounded in quiet comfort, luxurious and well maintained grounds, pools, facilities, with views and art worthy of appreciation. Absolutely beautiful. Attentive staff made our stay relaxing and took care of our wishes. Meals were delicious and the staff friendly. You can tell the owner has really put a lot of care and love into this establishment and into providing a great value for his guests. You won't be disappointed. Give 'The Manor' a try!

Room Tip: With the great rates, don't be afraid to splurge on the larger rooms like the Presidential Suite...

We stayed at The Manor at the beginning of January. The Manor is located on a hill, not far from the town centre, and offers stunning views of the area. As soon as we arrived we were instantly upgraded to the best room in the house, the Presidential Suite. Amazing! A huge room with separate private sitting area and windows overlooking both sides of the hill.
Em, the manager of The Manor, is simply amazing. She is incredibly welcoming and instantly makes you feel as if you had known her your whole life. She helped us with everything, offering suggestions for excursions, arranging scooter rental, in-room massage and anything else that we may care to ask for.
The rooms are very clean, beautifully furnished and comfortable. Included in the room is a set breakfast that changes every day (we were there two nights and we had eggs on the first day and pancakes on the second). WiFi is available in the internet room, which also offers computer access for those who don't have their own laptop. There is a lovely stretch of "private" beach nearby and, in the opposite direction, access to the town centre via a free boat shuttle provided by the Yacht Club. All in all, we loved it there and were very sad to leave. A special thank you goes to Em for her excellent management skills and for making us feel so welcome. Highly recommended.

This is a great hotel with wonderful views all around.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Stayed in two rooms, both nice, but the presidential suite was something else..
