“A PLACE OF SERENITY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

i brought my family at this resort last May 27, 2012 for a 3 day stay. It was a nice experience. We were met by the Italian owner itself Mr. Giorgio who is very nice in welcoming us. The room was "a OK" but not so comfortable for my two teenagers. The staff was nice but have notice that they were so slow in giving our needs/orders. The food was really "great" particularly the sinigang and the pansit and the pizza which my kids really have enjoyed, thanks to the cook who's named was Sharon whom we miss during our last day lunch, she took a day-off, and we really find the difference of the taste of the food (sigh) which end to be a take-out. The pool was really nice and beach was really great for its clear water that you could see some fish joining you while swimming. Mr Giorgio please put an intercom so that your client could just order using it and not wandered around looking for your staff. Nevertheless,Totally the place is indeed nice to spend a quite vacation. Would love to recommend to others..

Room Tip: the management should always keep every room very comfortable and clean for their clients to enjoy d...

Just the right place for people who want to commune with nature and who want to avoid the noise and bustle of White Beach. The beach is clean and so is the pool. The owner is easy to talk to and personable. Price is reasonable. The walk and ride to the resort is an experience by itself. The resort's isolation from the crowd adds ambience and mystic to its splendid location and the people visiting the resort. You don't know Puerto Galera unless you visit this place.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms facing the beach.

The title of my review says it all... If you want a great place just to unwind for a weekend or even less than a week vacation, El Canonero Diving and Beach Resort is the place you're looking for. If you like a breathtaking view of mountains in front of beaches and enjoy some activities like kayaking or maybe just take a dip on the pool w/o the usual loud beach crowd, this is a very nice alternative for your summer getaway... W/ a very hospitable staff, and nice food (a little short on menu though...) In short, We enjoyed this unforgettable weekend this year!

Room Tip: try the upper floors for a nicer view of the beach...

Enjoyed my weekend here, as the place is not crowded. Its so peaceful and you could just have the beach and nature by yourself. At night, you have the pool to swim at and Italian restaurant just around the place. Staff and owner were very helpful and accommodating. Highly recommended for families and friends who are looking for a place to just chill out.

One of the best places I've ever been. Accommodating staff, good service, complete amenities, safe environment, and people are so friendly! This place makes you feel at home. A place not too far away from Manila, with laid-back environment, great sea, awesome view. Worth every penny. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends, and I just can't wait to go back! Thank you guys for making our stay such a pleasant, memorable one.

We enjoyed our recent stay @ El Canonero! It's a beach front hotel with pool plus very accommodating owner and staff. It's really a place for relaxation, for sure i'll come back again and will recommend to friends who are beach bums like me. My summer 2012 ends with a blast...thanks to ECDBR :)

We had just our recent trip in puerto galera since its summertime for our kids. We found the Metro Deal package tour right for the number of our family members. We enjoyed our stay and we we really feel relaxed with its very serene ambiance tha'ts really good for relaxation not to mention the beach front hotel. The accommodation are quite good and complete with all the facilities you want to have when you're outside of your home. Truly an enjoyable vacation for all of us.
