This was my first time in the Philippines, and I really enjoyed the El Galleon. The staff were unfailingly polite & helpful, the food was very good, the prices were fair, and the diving was great. The resort is right on the shore, has its own pier & dive facility (operated by the very professional Asia Divers), and the whole... More

We just can't resist going back to El Galeon and Asia Divers. In between visits we dive other areas in Asia but nothing beats the diving in PG with these guys. If you love diving then you have got to go with Asia Divers and stay at El Galeon. Oh, and make sure to dive Verde Island - awesome! Thanks... More

Aside from the best place in Sabang, the company is well established for about 30 years. So you'll never go wrong if you choose this resort. They know the business enough that they'll never be wrong. The food is more than average for a nice restaurant but surprisingly in big servings. Likewise, staff is as friendly as the instructors of... More

Room overlooking the dive centre was spacious, cool with a comfy bed. Safe didn't work properly and efforts to fix were lacklustre. Room is cleaned only on request. Shower is cold but not freezing. Hotel only provides tiny bar of soap and a small shampoo squirter, plus two complimentary small bottles of water. Use supermarket in town to buy what... More

Nice bar with a great view of the ocean. Great drinks list and good bar food too. Our first stop on the island in a huge thunderstorm and they let us sit there for hours as the storm passed. Great service.

El Galeon and Asia Divers is a perfectly pitched mid-range resort that's all about services and convenience. No frills on the facilities and an excellent and diverse kitchen, if you're all about getting on with your holiday and not being interrupted all the time, this place is for you. The dive shop is 30 seconds walk away, there are lots... More

Majestic views of Sabang Bay and Small Lalaguna Beach, with a restaurant which extends to the water’s edge offering a great value in European and local cuisine, a small pool for learning how to dive, spa, and all the hotel amenities and necessities one needs to totally enjoy his/her stay.
