There are wide hotel options to choose from around Sabang area but Big Apple is one of the most affordable place I can find at the time we went there. The staff are accommodating and responsive. They are not so strict with the check-in and check-out time, in fact, they would allow us to stay for another 4 hours free...

Returned to Big Apple for diving after a great experience a few years back. The Divemaster, Bunny (Joevani Rafael), knows all the sights well, and was a great guide. Requested a trip out to Verde Island on my arrival (Monday) and after they advertised it in front of the resort for a day, was able to get out there for...

We spent about a week here. IMO, there are more luxurious resorts, but not better dive resorts. I felt like we got the most and best diving in the area for our money. While I would not recommend taking children to any resort on Sabang Beach (do your research before going & If you do take children, I recommend keeping...

We went here a few times in our brief stay in Puerto Galera. The location is good and beer is cheap. We also ordered pizza which was average. They had pool tables, many TVs playing sports and fun music blasting. On our last day, we went there for breakfast and to watch the NBA Finals; they accommodated us by finding...

We ordered a pizza and pasta and those were great but to my surprise there is a small plastic piece maybe from mozarella or anything from their kitchen. Can't believe I almost eat it! They need to check things around them when making food for customers safety.

The room I had (23) was large with a noisy air con that wasn't able to keep the temperature down at a comfortable level, and with a dirty filter and behind the filter the coil was clogged with bacterial growth..... Terrible bathroom with a shower that barely gave water. The lamp above the mirror didn't work. The exhaust fan needed...

This was my second stay at Big Apple and I knew that the majority of the staff had changed and also a new manager since my last trip. I was pleasantly surprised to find the staff were every bit as helpful as the previous staff and nothing was a bother and the service was exceptional! Unfortunately I can't say the...

Stayed here recently for a Birthday treat getaway, as we live in the area we wanted somewhere with a nice pool and good food. The rooms are reasonable, a little old and dated, but comfortable enough. The swimming pool water was quite clean but the sides of the pool could do with a good scrub up, signs that the pool...
