We had a very good dive with Gavin in Puerto Galera. We had dived before but have no certificate. Gavin took us through the stuff very professionally with a smile and a joke. The waiting time, the preparation time, the dive. Every thing was very good. On the 24th we even borrowed their Christmas tree from the shop to big...

Its my second time saying at this hotel. The staff is always friendly and the owner is a great guy. The hotel is nothing special. I think its important to note the the owner also has to other hotels on different parts of the island. I would recommend staying at there studio apartment in Sabang.

We went here for our first-ever dive and we were not disappointed. The staff (especially the instructor, Gavin) has been really helpful and is very professional. He took care of every detail, from the briefing to the actual dive. No wonder they gained a good reputation on what they do! Keep it up! (Also try the wet burrito from the...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Badladz Dive Resort. The rooms are spacious and neat and the view over the beautiful Puerto Galera bay is gorgeous and probably the nicest view I had from any hotel room, ever. The hotel/resort is located at the Muelle Pier (a small port/harbour area), which personally I really preferred over the massive and very...

The hostel is located right next to Muelle Pier, so be sure to catch a ferry from Batangas that goes there. Accommodation is basic, but considering the price (and the fact that you will be outdoors 99% of the time) it is more than fine. The food at the restaurant is great and staff are super friendly, happy to give...

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
