“a shame...”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

This resort is. without question, one of the nicest in the Philippines and among the best I have been to in the world comfortably in the ranks of Four Season's in Nevis or even the Ritz in Naples. The staff are wonderful and the view cannot be matched anywhere; mountains to the North (less than 1km away) and a nice beach adjacent. BUT THE MANAGEMENT ARE RUDE, they seem to have an attitude whereby you are less important than they. My personal opinion, and please trust this, I am very well travelled, is to stay away, you will be on edge during your entire stay. I am not going to specifically recommend other options but there are many that are almost as nice and much more pleasant.

Puerto Galera is a destination of divers and backpackers, with this reputation in mind, it would be a far fetched destination for weekenders or tourists looking for a pampering rest & recreation vacation. Still, being adventurous we decided to go and try it out. Infinity Resort is a new high end residence that has started to tease our curiosity, still in its soft opening stage, we booked a 3D/2N stay. As expected, the place is still unfinished, as you enter the gates the garden is being landscaped and the additional rooms were still under construction. About 6 villas were already in operation. You can rent the whole 2 story villa or a part of it. Our room was the first villa from the beach, nice and tastefully decorated with beautiful wood furniture; and so is the entire resort. The T&B was very modern and quite roomy. The infinity pool was huge; and a large jacuzzi is on an elevated platform on the side of the bar which was very relaxing, unfortunately kids love to play in it so becomes a kiddy pool. The food is good, they have a German Chef who personally cooked the food we ordered. Since there were very few guests, we told the chef to just prepare for us the catch of the day and for breakfast we went for the chef's choice. One night, we had chill crabs, which was the specialty of the house, and it was pretty special! The staff are helpful & friendly, although we could feel that they are still groping their way through the service; you need a bit of patience through the opening stages since they are still not a well-oiled machine. The rest and pampering is definitely achieved, with the good food and luxurious accommodation, but on the recreation side, there is more to be had. There are kayaks at the resort that guests can use, free of charge, but the beach needs to be cleared of seaweed and I was told that the gravel is brought in by the waves from the sea so it is not so pleasant to walk through the shore. There are small modest resorts along the Talipanan beach, some even abandoned in the middle of construction, but nothing can compare to the first class standards of the Infinty Resort. Puerto Galera has so much to improve, transport (RoRo) from Batangas Port needs a serious upgrading and the nearby beaches & attractions are unsightly, almost like forgotten and unkempt, which left us feeling sad after a drive along the seaside. I can't help but think of the Infinity as a diamond in the rough.

Room Tip: Villas facing the beach
