“Great Dive Operation - Cool vibe and staff”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

I spent three days diving with Blue Ribbon.

The staff including Jon (owner), Baz (UK instructor) and Ariel (local instructor) were easy to deal with and more than accommodating in regards to choice of dive sites. From a fun divers perspective, that's a good thing.

The dive gear is new (scubapro and apeks regs) and the dive prices are probably the best in Sabang. The evening BBQs are good value and all you can eat.

The staff are willing to go out for a drink in the evening and provide local advice about anything you may ask.

Verde Island is a must dive. I'll be back to do it over 2 days!

We went to visit Puerto Galera and Blue Ribbon/Sunsplash only for a week but ended up stying there for three weeks!

Diving was exellent. There were different places and different things to see for the whole time. All the diving was done relaxed but still a professional way, the diving groups were small and it was very easy to make plans with Jonathan and Buz. Blue Ribbon's rental gear was new and well maintained. Only, could you make the sea a little bit warmer...

We were staying at the Sunsplash Resort with our two little kids (under one year and around two years old). Sunsplash had a baby cot for us and the bungalow was big enough to have room for us all. Shower was strong and had a warm water. Staff was very friendly and helpful. In the evenings they had barbecue which was very handy with the children.

1300 Pesos (less than £20) per night so you should not expect anywhere near luxury and my rating relates only to the accommodation and NOT the dive centre (I am not a diver). Rooms are basic, I stayed in a 'deluxe aircon double', to be honest to describe the room as 'deluxe' is stretching it quite far, there was nothing 'deluxe' about the room at all. I am not complaining at all (remember the price), all I am saying is don't expect luxury, you get what you pay for which is a a reaonably sized room with double bed (some new bedding wouldn't go amiss), a small CRT TV, some drawers, an aircon unit (worked fine) and a basic shower room. Note there is no balcony/terrace in these deluxe aircon rooms - you have to book a detached non-air con bungalow for that. Staff are friendly and welcoming and the location is pretty good, a 5 minute walk along the beach path to the next bay from the centre of Sabang so it is close to all that you need but away from the noise of the bars.

I have stayed and dived here several times now and wouldn't really consider going anywhere else. Excellent value and Gary and the crew take excellent care of you. Sabang is a stone's throw away but you have the quiet and relaxation of not being right in the middle of the chaos. Blue Ribbon is an excellent place to dive and Jon runs a tight ship. They have all new diving gear, fantastic people and a very flexible relaxed approach to scheduling and timings - everything is arranged around what you want to do. If you're coming to Puerto Galera I couldn't think of a better option all round. I'll be back several more times I suspect.

I did 24 dives with blue ribbon and would come back again. John, Baz and Ariel are great. Always helpful and friendly. Dive sites are minutes away and diver-to-dm ratio was very low 3:1. All the gear was new and in good condition. They were professional and helpful when diving and you can relax and enjoy a beer with them after. They are right beside Asia Divers and I would definitely go with Blue Ribbon again. Great for all but especially budget divers.

We were at another inn right beside, which we liked, but the water stopped working so we moved to Sunplash for 3 nights. Rooms are basic, but good value and had everything we needed. The area is right on the beach, quiet, and there is a nice garden. The staff was helpful and friendly. Great BBQ Buffet and drinks were cheaper than anywhere else we found. Other guests were friendly and outgoing.
