The rooms are like suites with a small kitchenette. Decent A/C. The hotel is right on the beach 15 minute walk from Sabang center. Smoking is allowed. wi-fi is very bad. Then, they charge 4% on credit cards.

3 1/2 star place at a 5 star location. I think the staff are quite fantastic. Food is good as far as breakfast. We ate out for dinner at other places every night. In general I would rate Puerto Galera as a great "Guy Trip" as it is what it is.

From experience I know that there are much cheaper and much better accommodations around this area. Portofino has old rooms with ugly and uncomfortable linens, the bathrooms are on a very low standard or even under usual standards. The music was far too loud in the evening and when you sit outside, flies will attack you. The front view of... More

I made our booking through Action Divers as I was also taking my Advanced course with them. They recommended this place as it was beside them and hence convenient. Upon check in, the staff were very friendly and greeted us with a smile. We reserved the Premium Beachfront view apartment and the view and location did not disappoint. The view... More

If you like your privacy, don't get a room at this hotel. As you can see in one of my pictures, from the outside people have a perfect view of the inside of your room. The window blinds provide no coverage. I wouldn't have been so inspired to write my review had I not woken up in the middle of... More

Stayed over Christmas with 4 friends and a 2 year old, Acommodation really varies in the hotel and I think your experience really depends on the room you have. Our room was the most basic in the price range and had a damp smell and no balcony area or windows which didn't face the public walkway, which meant it was... More

The pool is great! That is really where the praise stops as the rest of the place is a bit of a let-down really. The signs of wear and tear are obvious and the condition of the room I had was relatively poor, considering that the price of the stay for our group of cyclists was not cheap. I had... More
