A great spot in Puerto Galero and just a few feet away from a lovely beach. The hotel is very clean and staff are so friendly that make you feel at home. Food always super tasty and they have the best mango shakes in The Phillippines! I had my first diving experience with Gavin Ohanlon, he is very professional... I felt very safe and had a wonderful time.

My wife and I spent two weeks at the Badladz beach resort in Peurto Galero in March and were impressed with the friendliness of all the staff and the welcome we received from the locals. We were blessed with good weather and managed to swim in the sea each day. The food was always good and varied .We travelled between the two Badladz resorts using the local motor cycle trikes which were plentiful and cheap. Badladz adventure resort is on the pier and has a in house dive shop, we are not divers but the staff there were very friendly and had lots of info for us for getting around and advice on places to go. We intend returning again next year for another spell at Badladz next spring. See you soon guys!

Hi Terry F ,

Thank you so much Terry for leaving us a great review.

I'm trilled to see you got a friendly welcome here and I will be sure to let the staff know in both Resorts the kind words you left for them. Anytime any of our guests need to know info about places to go or how much its costs to get around all they need to do is ask our friendly staff.

Can't wait to welcome you guys back for some more good food and next time you can try diving :)

Safe travels.

Spent about 10 days in Badladz. Location is great with the resort itself very clean and tidy with very attentive staff and really delicious food well above the standard in the Philippines. Rooms are well kept and very clean. The diving is also amazing with VERY knowledgeable staff who are both fun and safety conscious. I felt very comfortable diving with the guys who gave me some great sensible advice, big shout out to Gavin O’H who really knows his stuff. I will definitely be back to Badladz as the value and standards can’t be beat.

Well. Not exactly a holiday. I lived there for a while. I couldn't leave. I just loved waking up and walking on the beach, feeling the sand between my toes. In the afternoons, we drank San Miguel's and watched the sun sink beneath the horizon. In the evenings, it was quiet and serene, but whenever I wanted to party, it was a short ride away. Great staff. Best Mexican food in Asia (I swear). Give it a try. You won't regret it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the beach so you can hear the waves while you feel asleep.

I loved this resort.

The resort is big, and there's plenty of room to relax, both inside and outside. Outside, you have one of the most amazing views I've seen in my life over the ocean, the mountains and the bay. With the sounds of the ocean, animals and other nature in the background, I felt completely at ease the moment I got here.

The rooms are clean, with great beds, and a bathroom that actually has good warm water (unlike in many other places I've went to in Asia).

The staff is extremely friendly and made me feel right at home. They're (pretty) Filipino girls who all speak English very well which made it really easy for me to talk to them. They helped me out with any problems I had.

There's a big swimming pool (with a grotto) at the resort, and you're literally less than 20 meters from the ocean. I could start my mornings choosing which water I wanted to take my morning swim in!

One of the things I liked the most was the food in the restaurant on the resort. It was amazing! Freshly, deliciously cooked meals that tasted great. The price wasn't bad, either.

There are motorbikes you can take, and there's plenty to do in the area. Diving, snorkeling, paintballing, mudkart-driving - you name it! Then there are the massages, and the nightlife that's sure to blow your mind.

I wish I came here years ago.

Next time I'm in the Phillippines, I'll definitely come here again.

Room Tip: I'd like the ones on the second floor best - you'll get the best view.
