For me and my friends, the best place to be in this area of Puerto Galera! Room is really big, clean and everything is well provided. :) I would have rated if 5 if they had a restaurant. Good thing the hotel beside it has a restaurant that offers Mexican food. Price can be steep, but it's better than nothing....

I spent two very relaxing weeks in puerto galera squares café and apartments. The rooms are simple but very spacious and dispose of everything you need (air con, big shower, good lights, tv, rice cooker and water boiler). The most important thing is that they are clean. The garden is perfect to relax and the staff cleans and looks after...

It isn't your everyday, garden-variety Philippine hotel The place is poster-pretty and for a while there, you might think you were on a Greek or Meditteranean hideaway, The lawn is meticulously manicured and though it's beach won't hold a candle to Boracay, it is clean, wide and stretches long enough for one to do a quiet, contemplative morning stroll. It...

This is a very nice place and appealing to the eye on arrival. The hotel borders the beach and has a manicured lawn to lounge on in front of the beach. There are drawbacks though. The rooms are like apartments, with a cooking area, bedroom and living area. The Air Conditioner is in the bedroom, which means it does not...

Awesome time with family at The Square Cafe & Apartments. Excellent check in straight to the room. Nice living room space with a tidy bedroom and clean bathroom. Small kitchenette with all that is needed for a small family. We were 5 of us with 2 kids and good enough space for us as we ordered couple of extra mattresses....

If you are looking for a bit of night life and prefer a scheduled vacation with lots of amenities this place is probably not for you . On the other if you want a bit of Zen in a peaceful uncrowded location with great accommodation at a budget price this is the place.

Me and my wife stayed here during the long weekend of June 12-14, 2015. All I could say is that this place is very relaxing and private. You can almost do what ever you want here. Sleep in the beach bed, stare at the horizon, do some photography and many more. The staff is also very friend and they will...
