Reasonable rooms with good views over PG harbour. The Restaurant has some nice Mexican style dishes, well more texmex really, but a lot better than you might find elsewhere in Philippines....or even NZ. I went for a couple of dives which went fine considering the crappy monsoon weather on the day. Hot towels after the dive are a nice touch... More

This hotel has a great location overlooking the bay with the yachts in the back ground,we really enjoyed sipping a few beers in the late afternoon in the restaurant.

Thanks for the great review. I did not realise that the lighting was inadequate, we will certainly address this issue.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The best of the Puerto Galera resorts! Our hotel is small, quiet and very clean. Located on the Yacht Harbour in Puerto Galera Bay at the "quiet" end of the main tourist pier, Muelle Pier. Our location is very convenient for travelers. You will be only 6 km from both Sabang and White Beach making it the best of both worlds. This makes it a nice alternative to the crowds at both these locations yet close enough to enjoy these spots, far enough away for rest and relaxation. You simply MUST try our famous International restaurant. We are highly rated here on TripAdvisor and serve the best Mexican food on the island. If you have come to learn how to dive, whether you are a complete beginner and just started learning to dive, or you’re an experienced diver looking to expand your qualifications, you’ve come to the right place. Our in-house dive shop offers you everything you need to discover the beautiful underwater world of Puerto Galera – no matter what your skill level is. We’ll take you to the best diving spots in Puerto Galera, which is one of the most beautiful bays in the world. You will find that staying here at BADLADZ Dive Resort is great value for your money and offers many conveniences whether you're here to dive or to enjoy the surrounding activities. ... more   less
