Thank you Giuseppe, Tiff, Paolo, Ariel, Joseph, the girls in the bar and all the staff behind the scenes and who’s named we didn’t learn. A beautiful experience made even better by the incredible staff, kindness and hospitality make Fishermen’s Cove an absolutely wonderful experience. The dive centre is excellent, diving was amazing, rooms very modern and clean but the food! The food was amazing, we are vegetarian and as soon as we pointed this out a plethora of new dishes were served just for us, no cutting corners or just removing meat from an existing dish, we were so well looked after I’ve got a little tear in my eye as I wrote this and reflect on our stay Thank you all x
Great place to stay with family and friends. The owner " Josepe " is a great guy and his attention over everything makes your stay more joyful. You served with perfectly cooked Italian food that makes an advantage for anybody to enjoy the food without being worried about the taste or the content of the local food. Great facility for scuba diving and snorkeling.
This a small dive resort owned and managed very capably by Guiseppe. A private taxi transferred the group of six of us from Manila airport to Batangas where a boat was waiting for us. It was exciting balancing along a wobbly gangplank to board one boat, then another precarious gangplank to transfer to our boat. Some boat transfers are arranged for the public ferries and soon the resort will have it's own boat for speedy transfers from Batangas. Giuseppe was there when we arrived at the resort. We had been travelling for 8 hours non stop and a Welcome drink and more enthusiastic greeting would have been greatly appreciated at that point. Anyway, we were quickly shown to our room. Guiseppe came to check that the room was OK and when I mentioned how thirsty we were he immediately arranged for a couple of drinks to be sent up to us and we were very grateful for that. Our room was on the top floor (4th floor) of the newer building and there were quite a few steps to climb up but the room was very spacious and it had a huge balcony with a wonderful view of the sea. As you lie in bed. (a very firm bed!) you can see the ocean which is a pleasant view, but as there are no curtains or blinds at one window and light curtains on the other big window, the light woke me up just after 5 a.m. each morning. The room could sleep four people so we had plenty of space for just the two of us. We used the spare bed for storing clothes on. There is one drawer, plenty of shelving and a couple of rails for hanging clothes from. The room was cleaned to an excellent standard. Bars of soap are provided so bring your all own other toiletries. Two 500ml bottles of water are provided daily. It would be nice to have water dispensers and refillable containers instead of plastic bottles. Halfway through our stay he arranged for a kettle and tea/coffee making in our room. That was much appreciated. The restaurant is situated overlooking the sea which is very pleasant. Apart from breakfast, the lunches and dinners are Italian. The meal portions are huge and I would have preferred smaller portions but have water / fruit juices included in the price, not as an additional cost. Instant coffee is included, but other coffee is charged for. The food is great if you enjoy eating a lot of pasta and bread, but not so good if you are gluten intolerant or would prefer a bit more variety. Four of our group didn’t eat fish, so we were given chicken or pork or sausage instead. For most meals we didn’t know what was going to be served until it arrived in front of us. I would have preferred to have seen the menu on a blackboard and be able to make some more choices. I will stress that lovers of home made bread, pasta, fish and salad will be really happy with the food. The diving was well organised and our guide was very knowledgeable. We only managed two days instead of five due to an ear infection but we saw an incredible amount of marine life in just six dives. If you'd like to check out the diving , then take a look at my YouTube channel 'Gerry Green Diving - Beautiful Scuba Diving from puerto Galera May 2019' Giuseppe definitely goes the extra mile to help his guests. He lent me his laptop for one evening and took me to see a doctor when I had an ear infection. Both of which were greatly appreciated.…
We went twice to Fishermen's Cove this year. The 1st time at Christmas and we did not know anything about the small resort, and a 2nd time during Xmas. It is a nice, laid back small resort, no thrill, very clean rooms (some are newer than others, try to be in the new building), great garden with a swimming pool and this feeling of being away from it all. The diving was great, staff very professional, and the diving gear in good condition. Overall, the staff is lovely, the food is a high point: nice Italian dishes all around, fresh fish and seafood. We will go back for sure!
Small resort focused on diving. The touch of the Italian manager can be found everywhere, especially on the food! special attention is dedicated to all the guest by all the resort staff (both at diving, in the rooms and at the restaurant). Great dives (mainly for macro) with the support of nice guides always available to show you many critters. Small but well maintained swimming pool, nice garden, comfortable and really clean rooms. we spent 9 days and we really would like to stay more! we are already planning next stay in this special resort. we'd like to thank Giuseppe, the manager, for all the support during booking and during our stay. see you soon!
