“Great place to relax”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

I spent a couple of weeks at Badladz resort. The people there are awesome, the food is good and as healthy as you need it to be, and there's internet, so you can work next to the beach. We even did workouts around the resort. It's a great place to chill out, and you'll meet some interesting people.

My wife and I have experienced many resorts within the Philippines but our stay at Badladz was the most memorable. The food always well presented, always freshly cooked and always delivered to the table in time for us to eat together. (Not waiting).
The staff always welcoming and helpful to any requests.
The owners Maylene and Sean left nothing to chance to make our stay the best experience. Anything and everything we asked for was arranged (and where possible, personally guided by either Maylene/Sean) , shopping, tours, even the diving, and bbq were personally escorted by Sean.
Being a novice diver myself, Sean and his team of Certified dive instructors took me through the required refresher training to enable me to reenter the water safely. I cannot speak more highly of the attention given to making our dives safe. Thank you Adventure Resort, also owned by Maylene and Sean. Which by the way is genius. The Badladz resort is quiet, peaceful and yet only minutes away from the activities on offer at Adventure Resort meaning any arrangements can be made in the moment. Thank you so much to all the team at Badladz.

Room Tip: Rooms on upper level give the best views

We stayed at Badladz Beach Resort for about 2 weeks and had a BLAST! The beach resort is very suitable for people who want to combine their holiday with their (online) business due to the tranquility, clean facilities and world class food (which is extremely well priced as well)

Their dive-shop is centrally located in a beautiful bay and Puerto Galera has some of the most beautiful dive sites I've ever seen. Conditions are great and the instructors Jojo, Gavin & Gavin make sure every dive is smooth and enjoyable. I did my advanced course with Badladz which was simply GREAT. I can highly recommend dive sites like the Canyons, whole in the wall, Monkey beach and Sabang wrecks, there is so much to see and visibility is superb!

Sean will be able to take to a really nice place where you can do shooting ranging from 0.45 caliber to M16. In addition you can add some paintball, go-karting and a mud buggy to the mix and you'll have a guaranteed perfect afternoon. If you want to blow off some steam and have a nice night out after a busy day there are plenty of restaurants & bars in Sabang, which was always a pleasure. In addition definitely try the floating bars, were friendly girls and cold beer will be waiting for you..

I'll most definitely be back at Badladz and look forward catching up with the staff!!

Cheers,

Sebastian.

Lovely place to stay , probably the best food on the Island, everything seems simply delicious and huge portions, Mexican food the best in the Philippins their speciality such cute rooms , ok not huge but fitted out very nicely and most comfortble , but the staff is what makes this such a nice place to stay, they know how to treat there guests and the owner Myleen was more like a best friend when we had to go , , they cannot do enough for you here and the hotel is just a hidden gem , and the price for a room a bargain on the Island , see you again later this year,, we will return ;thank you Badladz .

Room Tip: All rooms are spotless as is the hotel .

Best place I've stayed at in the Philippines. Would stay there again if I return. The hospitality typical of the Filipinos is evident. Spotless rooms and restaurant, fabulous beach and pool, walking distance to the quaint downtown are more reasons I would return. While there our party golfed on a one-of-a-kind mountainside golf course, took an adventure tour into the jungle, rented motorbikes, watched the fishermen reel in their nets at night, danced and ate the most delicious fresh fruit I've ever tasted. We also shopped and bartered with the local merchants. A top shelf resort for a very reasonable price. Cheers to Mylene and her staff. Oh and one more point, if you happen to be there when Sean rolls in...you'll be treated to pirate stories and sunken ships and hours of the island's history as well as amusing tales of the Philippines as a whole.

Room Tip: No elevator so you may want to stay on ground floor.

I've stayed at this resort many times; this is my first chance at getting around to writing a review. Badladz is a great getaway from the doldrums of everyday life back in the western world. Excellent Mexican food and the staff are top notch with every whim. Small Tabinay is off the beaten path a bit, but all the trike drivers know exactly where it is. Do yourself a favor next time you're in Mindoro and book a few nights at Badladz, you won't be disappointed!!!

Hi ohhellno1 ,

Thanks for taking the time to write us a review , we truly appreciate getting feedback from our happy guests. I am trilled to read you enjoyed our Mexican food , we import a lot of the ingredients for those recipes and we believe it helps make delicious food.

We love our quiet spot here away from other busier areas on the island , a lot of our guests enjoying falling asleep to the noise of waves on the beach front.

We look forward to welcoming you back again.

Safe travels.

I have never seen paradise until I arrived at Badladz resort. I felt welcome from the very start. The staff was there for our every need. Food was very good & they prepared any way we asked. times it was very quiet & other you could hear people laughing with enjoyment of friendship. The views in the morning sunrise with the sound of the surf just kept us of relaxed.

Badladz arranged for us to scuba drive for the first time. I felt I was in good hands on our fist attempt, just awesome feeling. ready for my next dive when I return. this is one place you should not pass by..

Thank you Badladz for a great time
