I recently spent a week in the Phillippines and spent the majority of the trip at Out of the Blue and I have to say it was one of the most pleasant holidays I have ever had! From the moment I stepped foot in the beautiful, almost Grecian-like resort I was treated like royalty - the resort managers and service staff are extremely approachable and friendly.
The location in Little Laguna is perfect - a 10 minute walk to Sabang and Big Laguna, and only a quick boat ride to Coco Beach, White Beach and Puerto Galera.
The villas were impeccably looked after. Cleaned daily, my villa was always restocked with drinks, clean towels and sheets. The laundry service is also of a high standard.
Breakfast was a highlight - the traditional Filipino breakfast is a must! The resort's restaurant, The Verandah, was a deliciously convenient option for many snacks, lunches and dinners.
Both pools at the resort are very well maintained. The balcony pool offers stunning views of the ocean - just pure bliss!
Divers would be in heaven at Out of the Blue - there are just so many places to dive! As a non-diver, I was never short of things to do. During my stay I snorkelled, took boat trips to surrounding beaches, shopped at the local towns and swam at the beach and in the resort pools. The resort staff were very helpful in recommending places to see and helping out with transport.
I cannot recommend OOTB enough - I would DEFINITELY stay here again!

out of the blue is one of the wonderful resorts in mindoro or to be specific in sabang.. the place was not as crowded as to compare with white beach..if you are into diving and looking for a place to go to relax or a romantic one this is the best place..the resort is so simple yet so elegant and a value for money..their staff are very friendly and accommodating..thank you guys for making our stay memorable and romantic..thank you also for the helping me out for my surprise to my hubby..it was really FANTASTIC!!! but the only deffect is that they forgot to clean the aircon filter but to wrap it all up our weekend and 2nd anniversary celebration is good or should i say it was indeed an excellent one!!! good job OOTB ;)

Spent fives nights here recently. Very pleased. Will go back. Well maintained and run. One of the biggest problems with stays in the Philippines is many places are not kept up, Out of the Blue is being very well taken care of.

Mindoro is the closest island in Philippines to Luzon where Manila international airport is located. Accordingly, you can join it by car and boat and are not required to take a new plane. As a consequence, it is very crowded during the week end, particularly the Northern capital Puerto Galera and its seaside attraction, Sabang with the neighboring Small and Big La Laguna plus White Beach. If you choose to get there, Out of the Blue is a nice resort, not too big but upper standard, with a cosy accommodation including a nice swimming pool. You can have access for a reasonable budget to "villa" which is a large junior suite, nicely furbished and where you can cook in your private kitchen, which has been our choice all nights except one. Breakfast is included, classical international eggs and beverage, just beware the "orange juice" which is actually the famous "TANG" that consists in sugar and chemical. It is the only provision we can find for this resort, not too serious indeed. The welcome was warm and always smiling, the service is no default including a daily laundry which allows you to "travel light". Beware : there is no direct beach access from the resort, you have to negociate a boat to get to the fabulous surrounding sorkelling, beaches and scuba diving places (but it is worth the deal and a kind of habit to negociate daily at progressive discounts). The interest of the place is that it is 10 minutes walking from Sabang downtown where you find shops, bars, restaurants, one diving center each 5 meters and you cross also all the old fat whites guys that are coming here for sexual company (don't be surprised, it is frequent in Philippines). So in Out of The Blue you have convenience of downtown without being downtown. Once again we suggest to select accommodations located upstairs in height. Even if it is hard to join at the end of a busy day, the view and the ambiance are no comparison with rooms down the swimming pool. Overall a good location for starting in Philippines by Mindoro Oriental. Next time, extend your Philippine trip to other more remote islands.

We stayed for 2 nights,,, YES short, but memorable. Thank you Dani, Jea and Tricia. The best customer service.

Yummy food (i love the Aussie meat pie! Delicioso!), very nice and comfortable rooms (we booked JS 1, Villa 5 and villa 9), Very clean,,, sooo relaxing...

My compliment to Chef Rey also :)

To sum it up, i will end it with MLTR's song...

"But then you came along to my surprise and stole my heart before my very eyes".... - Out of the Blue

Room Tip: If you hate climbing up the stairs, choose Jacuzzi Suites.
