“A minute walk from the beach :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

'Twas a nice and affordable place to stay in while enjoying the island of Mindoro. Their staff were really accommodating and friendly. And what I can say, it was really safe in there, even if we left some of our valuable things in our room, when we got back from from our activities all of it were still there. To think that you'll be surrendering the key at the reception. If you want a safe and affordable place to stay in and just a minute away from the beach, try here at Sea Jewel Beach resort.

I've been here twice, first in 2010 and the most recent was last April 2012 with my family. If you are into outdoor activities and have kids with you, this place is the safest bet.

Good:
-A minute walk from the beach.
-Close enough to bar & restaurants.
-They got better matresses compare to nearby lodging.
-Homey.
-Competitive rates, varies on weekdays/weekends.
-Staff were accomodating but not the front desk old woman, I remember my encounter with her on my first visit because she wanted me to pay for the sheet.
-They manage your booking for your return ferry, just tell them what time do you prefer.
-No power interruption. There was a 30-minute brown out on my first visit and they were the only one who has a generator in the area.
-Tidy. Considering its proximity to the beach, the place was kept clean all the time. They got an outdoor faucet where you can wash the sand off your feet before entering the premises.

Bad:
-Poor airconditioning system
-Worse water pressure for a beach hotel
-There's no place for you to hang your towels & clothes
-No pool, not a big deal for us though.
-Service is mediocre

To sum it up, you get what you paid for.

Room Tip: Water pressure on lower floors are better.

Me and my partner had a great overnight stay at Sea Jewel last October 21, 2012. I would give an excellent rating for their service. It was so easy transacting with them with regards to the reservations. They will provide you also with detailed instructions for your itinerary. The staff was really nice and accommodating. Our room was very clean and we had a comfortable sleep. I would definitely stay at Sea Jewel again if ever we come back to Puerto Galera. Had recommended this hotel to a friend and will continue to do so :)

My friends and I (we're all 6) stayed in Sea Jewel this December 27 to 29. I'm impressed with the warm accommodation of the hotel staff, I love the clean dining area and our air-conditioned room, and I like their excellent food services. The room fee was not that big and most of our needs were provided: towels, extra mattress, pillows, hangers, hot and cold water, cabinets etc. Plus, we have free and unlimited internet access. The hotel was also accessible, it was near the beach area, restaurants and stores. We just walked to reach those areas.

To sum it up, we had a great experience during our stay and I really recommend Sea Jewel resort to families and friends who want to visit Puerto Galera. Keep it up!

I recommend Sea jewel Beach resort if you are looking for a place where you can relax and enjoy. Their staffs are very friendly, and yes superb accommodating. From Batangas port you'll feel that you're "VIP", their staffs will guide you from buying tickets to their resort.

You will experience better than you're expecting!
Two thumbs up for this resort!
