This was my second year in a row staying at Blue Ribbon. What I like most about Blue Ribbon is the staff. They have an amazing ability to make you feel like a regular and a local who's been coming there for years. This includes their reception staff, the restaurant staff, and all of their instructors and Divemasters. I took...

I made a last minute decision to come to this Resort after spending one awful night at a nearby Resort. I arrived here based solely on the outside of the Resort as I was walking down the Beach, turned out to be a Lucky Decision! After meeting Marcus the Diving Instructor, I decided to take the PADI Open Water Training...

A 10 mins walk from the Puerto Galera island jetty to the resort, and there isn't anyone from the resort to bring us over. Porters of the island are there but be prepared to pay a fee for that service. Room and crew is generally friendly and comfortable. Air-conditioner, hot shower, mini fridge and towels are provided too. However the...

Stayed here as a couple for five days, first time in the Philippines. For a diving trip this is a great place to base yourself but for a none-diving partner there is little to do around the beaches of Sabang. The rooms are quite basic, but the friendliness of the staff, the quality of the restaurant and diving operation are...

This place is really charming with nice bungalows and a small swimming pool. The price was 2000 pesos per night the bungalow ( 40 euros) after 20% discount as I dived there. The bungalow is cute, confortable with a good bed, good shower with warm water and air conditioning. The swimming pool is pleasant. The staff is friendly. For diving...
