“THE BEST PLACE IN PG BAR NONE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2010

My friend and I go to Puerto Galera as often as we can (2 or 3 times a year) for diving and without doubt this is the BEST place to stay if you want upmarket and comfort. We have been staying here for a number of years now. The one time we could not get in (fully booked) we stayed at another resort close by, same cost but not even close in terms of standards!
They have the best staff, the best rooms and now the best restaurant in PG/Sabang/Laguna Beach(s). Again you wont find better meals for the price (and view) in PG.

Love this place and staff, cant say nice enough things!!!!
Cheers Clint

My husband and I recently took our 5 year old son to stay at Out of the Blue for a weekend. Our kid really loved it. He could splash about in the small, safe pool and with little beach at the bottom of the stairs that was great too. And no traffic to worry about! The rooms are huge and in our 2 bedroom villa he had plenty of play space. Very nice staff and lots of good food and wine for the grown ups. We used the roll on roll off ferry to get there and for our son that was another big highlight. We will be back.

I've stayed on a few Greek Islands and arriving at Out of the Blue is a bit like arriving at Mykonos. No donkeys though. The way the villas stretch up the side of the hill is bit daunting at first but the views are worth it. Great restaurant too - I couldn't believe the steaks and not your usual cheap plonk to go with them. Another surprise - the nightlife in Sabang. Just a stroll away (and a stagger back!!). Patong and Chaweng and Pattaya - eat your hearts out. Overall, not at all what I expected.

We are frequently going South for the weekend and the Out of the Blue Resort became one of our favorite places. It is easy to reach, nicely done and comfortable, good food and excellent service, whether in-house or for a boat trip. Very nice place!

Despite what the date on this review says, we stayed here in June 2008.

After having a God awful time in the Portofino Beach Resort, we actively sought different accommodation in resort and stumbled upon "Out Of The Blue Villas" by complete accident. The long concrete path (and many steps) is located right next to Action Divers (right hand side as you look at it) and in June 2008 it was advertised by a really tatty illuminated sign that puts you off. However if you walk along the concrete path (and up the many steps), you will find Geckos and heaven.

We moved in here frazzled, bitten and unhappy and left ten days later on a fog of bliss. If this Villa it was closer to the UK (about five hours flying) and the diving was more my thing then I'd certainly book in here in a heartbeat. However I'm not a fan of 'muck diving' and that's what primarily brought us to PG.

I'd agree with all the comments made about this is the only place to stay in PG etc. We had a one bedroomed apartment, with a large kitchen, lounge diner that could sleep more people if needed. I loved the way the wall to ceiling windows could be fully opened and we'd often sit there and soak up the view in the evening. It also offered brilliant seats to watch nature's amazing and dramatic lightening shows at night.

The place was spotless and from memory well equipped. We made friends with a local fruit lady, who'd plod up the steps and we bought delicately flavoured fresh juicy lychees and bananas (for flambéing) from her on a daily basis.

If we didn't fancy making breakfast, then we'd toddle down the concrete path, past Action Divers and up a couple of steps to Blue Moon. They did great Toast, Jam and cups of tea and such an amazingly clean toilet you could have eaten your toast and jam in there.

Back to Out Of The Blue Villas and the pool was peaceful and again had amazing views.

I have many happy memories of this place. Something to be treasured.

HI Le_Scribe. Thank you very much for you kind comments. You will be pleased to know our beach sign has been replaced. The one you saw was the aftermath of a very nasty tropical storm!
Also, we have come a long way since your visit with the addition of 4 Private Spa Villas and a great restaurant and bar called the Verandah, which is receiving great reviews. Hope to see you back soon.

Spent 10 days at Out of the Blue in room S3. Lovely double room with spa bath on separate patio. Immaculate room with everything you could need. Staff were very attentive and treated you like royalty.
After eating out at various places such as Capt'n Greggs and laguna Beach, the top place to eat was the Verandah at out of the blue. The food was superb, well presented and as you would find in any top london restaurant. On my birthday, they made me a cake and sang happy birthday. We don't usully go back to the same place twice but if we were to visit this area again, we would book.
Only negative point was the room information on the mini bar stating all the contents were complimentary and once they were used, tey would re-stock and charge. What they actually mean is the first 2 bottles of water are comlimentary.
The staff are commendable, Ems and Beth in the restaurant in particualr. They very quickly learnt how many cups of coffee we usually had and always had a smile.
The filipinos were very friendly and work very hard to make your stay a pleasurable one, we felt they all deserved a good "tip", it is a shame that some guests do nothing but complain and then either "tip" them in giving them 3 bottles of beer from the room fridge (£1.80) or state that they didn't go on holiday with enough money to pay for tips (on the way to the duty free shop) - all I can say is - shame on you.

Hi Chamberpots.
Thank you for your nice comments. It was great having you here. A real pleasure. And we have already fixed the room notice re bar drinks so other guests will not be confused too. We appreciate constructive feed-back, just as much as compliments, as it all helps to ensure we just keep getting better.
