Stayed here 7th through the 9th of Sept. 2016. As their ad says very close to the ferry dock. And yes it was, we could see the dive resort from a long distance, even before the ferry docked, making it very easy to find our way. The staff was fantastic, the place had a very appealing rustic charm to it.... More

The people here in badladz are very accomodating. I had no problem asking questions and clarifying things. Two things I think they should improve on is the air conditioning and mattress in the room. The air conditioning unit is too small for the room space. They could also improve on their mattress, it feels really cheap. Overall, I was still... More

I did two fun dives here at Badladz. Gavin was friendly and helpful helping me book my excursion. Christian and Bon (who took me out) were professional and experienced. The dives were great, a huge amount of flora and fauna to be seen. I've never seen such colourful corals and the huge sea turtle was lovely to see. I advise... More

Kool Review, Thanks. Puerto Galera is THE Center of Marine Biodiversity in the WORLD and it has been a Marine Preserve for about 40 years. That's why the huge amount of flora and fauna " was to be seen. This place is truly AWESOME👌 Cheers Sean More

We went just there to dive. Three of my kids did the Open Water Diver, including my 10 year old daughter. The staff was very competent and caring, and the dives were just great. I shall not hesitate to come back. And by the way: Mexican food in the resort is nice, and the beer is really cold!

I have been there last year. I did my diving course within 2-3 days very intensively because I had really a short time. My instructor Gavin is a really nice, patient and very professional teacher. The resort is really easy to find once you arrive at Puerto Muelle exactly midway between White Beach and Sabang, so it is quite easy... More

We really enjyoed diving with this dive shop. Saff is nice and informative, ready to help and answer to your questions. Also, after the dive they give you a warm towel, to warm yourself up, and what I liked the most is that they are really flexible, if you want to dive, no problem, they will organize it for you.

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
