There were several choices in Puerto Galera, but we booked with dream hills condo because of the rave reviews that the owner received on the scuba diving lessons he provides to the guest. After booking it, I then called the owner, Alf, 2 months before we arrived to advice of our stay & the desire for scuba diving lessons. I then told him that we wanted to change the # of people from 4 people to 6 & was to pay the additional people when we get there. He then said that the only room that would accommodate us comfortably would be the big suit @ 861 sq foot because the 2 bedroom condo was only 699 sq feet & will be too small. We were all very excited as it seems to be a good size accommodation. When we got to Batangas, I called Alf, the owner & he then advised me that he wasn't in the island & was in Manila, needless to say, the disappointment starts. The 861 sq foot suite was on a steep decline that it was hard to get to & with my bad back had to settle on the 699 sq ft suite. I understand paying for the additional people had I stayed on the bigger suite (861 sq ft) cause it's more comfortable but since we downsized & space was cramp for 6 people, I didn't think I’d be expected to pay for the additional people to the tune of Php 500.00 per person per night - additioinal PHP 2000.00 for our stay on a smaller unit. Though the views were gorgeous getting to town was very hard as it’s only though motorcycles or going down some slippery steps. Had to do that several times to eat & we did get scuba diving lessons in the town proper.
The only saving grace on this stay was that the 2 ladies made our stay very comfortable, i gave it 1 star becasue of the 2 ladies otherwise would have been 0. Personally, would NOT recommend dream hills condo.
