Disrepectful Cashier Terminal Fee!!
Nov 2021 • Family
People at the cashier counter of Terminal Fee is so disrespectful! We are in a long line and we are just waiting 7AM before they transact our payment and they are just doing nothing at the counter and laughing as if there are no people waiting for them! No Customer Service!! There are people or are rushing to get it but it seems they dont care at all. If you dont want your job quit! There are lot of people who is deserving than those girls. The security guards are way more accommodating rather those 2 girls!!!

Showing off Puerto Gallera to our Australian friends
Jan 2020 • Friends
I was reading all your comments about all the negative comments regarding Batangas Port, so me and my husband and brother decided to have a quick run to Batangas port before our friends arrived, we decided to commute at Robinson's Pala2 at Dasmarinas Cavite cost 160pesos each, it was a good run , maybe 1.5 hours on SUV. Once we reach the destination we just hop out a few meters walk towards the entrance gate.. I was very easy , we never got mug or hassles, mind u my husband is foreigner.. I have been there four times , my first time was 1980, 2006,2016 and 2020. We got hassles on the second trip to Puerto Gallera, the vendor's won't leave us alone. We went there as a family with my kids.. it made years in my eyes and swore never to returned to Puerto Gallera. So we did a dummy run yesterday 10.01.2020 and we never got hassles..only the passengers are permitted to enter the gate of Batangas port..very coordinate and we'll manages, the tourist are safe, there is a big car park inside the Port which is gated, I guess it should be safe if you are bringing a car..

Pushed into corner and forced to pay extra..
Nov 2019 • Friends
Exactly as title states. We were rushed through the port, and as soon as they saw that we weren’t locals, (we live in PH but are western nationals) workers literally cornered us and wouldn’t let us leave until we gave everyone money - despite already having bought a ticket. As a woman, this was terrifying and I didn’t have a choice but to pay, even though I know I didn’t have to.

A Big Seaport
Nov 2019
A big port south of the City of Manila engage in the carriage of people and goods directly to most of the islands in the archipelago. Large shipping companies make this port their home. It is easy to book a seat with the 500seater ships docked everyday. However, a glaring downside is the lack of clean restroom outside the terminal.

Stressful travel modus vendors
Nov 2019
As a traveler we want to travel with comfort I cant even see where our terminal fee goes. Be careful on the vendors near the fastcraft area they will get your bags and force you to buy their items(pasalubong) its a modus a lot of people trap on it. “PPA WAKE UP AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT THOSE VENDORS THIS IS NOT ONLY US THINK OF OUR INTERNATIONAL TOURIST TOO SHAME ON US!

Disorganized Port
Sep 2018
This port is Filipino efficiency all rolled up in one area. The Philippines, and especially Filipinos, are wonderful!!! Friendly people and beautiful scenery. However, being efficient seems to fall down the list in what is important in the country. Instead of paying all fees one time, and making travel simple and easy (like in Thailand), one must pay 3 different fees at different places.....the wait is often uncomfortable in a hot and crowded room, lacking good food. The many places you can go to, like Puerto Galera and Boracay, make it worth the wait, but I still wonder why the Phil does not make it so simple to compete with other SE-Asian countries.
The silver lining: Because of the lack of efficiency the Phil is not as crowded as it could be and finding that "deserted beach" is still possible! :-)

Puerto Galera Trip
Jul 2019 • Friends
Many has changed since the last time I went to PG, in 2015. There were no more old boats, all are fast crafts and roro vessels.
Be there early, so you can get the earlier trips.
The CR's outside are filthy. If you have the ticket already, pay the terminal fee and get inside. The CR's are clean inside the terminal.

Facility and personnel cannot handle large crowd of stranded passengers. Seats are insufficient. Some personnel seem not trained.

Batangas Port in regards to Car Parking
May 2019 • Couples
Intendedto go to Puerto Galera but didnt wanted to pay P1700 to bring our car on the ship so i had to look for a safe, safe,safe parking lot for days worth of duration. First, disappointed to find out inside the Batangas Port was the Park and Sail but it was full by 10am. Guard there suggested to go to an "alternative parking" and hopped on his motorbike and took us to this empty but quite muddy space they call Parking lot.. it was inside an open space kinda of compound where a guard watches over it. It was infront of the hiway and was just infront of the trike lane as well. When we got there, i just had a weird feeling that when its dark there oir car wont be safe. Its just that nobody else parked there. So the guard who took us there suggested to leave our car as it was "safe". When i asked to take his picture as a guarantee, he then hesitated and offered all of a sudden another parking...lol. He then took us to this "hidden" parking lot away from the noisy streets and hiway. Upon reaching it, saw there were all this cars, suvs,vans parked inside..then i got the feeling of safety somehow. Then a lady with an umbrella assisted us and soon we parked our beloved mazda3 and then i thought if someone would attempt any carnapping or opening it wouldnt be us cuz there are so many more better looking cars there haha...as they say "Safety in Numbers.." If you are wondering what the parking lot was called for you i will tell you... D and D.. P200/day. She gives a receipt guys don't worry 😊😊😊 i hope this helps.
