Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 26, 2014

Spent a weekend holiday with my family in Marco Vincent Resort. An excellent choice for a vacation in the white beach area. The rooms were very clean, good airconditioning, cable channels on the flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi in all the areas of the hotel. They also have good selection of food to choose from. They serve your favorite refreshments at the coffee shop. Spacious KTV rooms with very good sound system. They offer various outdoor activities too. They also have a sunset cruise package aboard their luxurious yacht. Oh and best of all, they have very friendly and accomodating staff. I highly recommend this resort the net time you visit Puerto Galera. In fact, i'm already planning my next trip very soon.

We spent a week in Puerto Galera to celebrate our anniversary. Marco Vincent is the best hotel we've seen here. The room had strong AC, cable television with nice flatscreen TV, refrigerator, hot and cold shower with a bathtub to soak the stress away. The room is furnished and has a safe in the closet for your valuables. The pool in the center of the hotel was clean and gave great ambiance when relaxing outside our room. Even though we only planned to spend a couple days here, we couldn't bring ourselves to leave. The staff here is extremely friendly and always accommodating as well as fluent in English (no nosebleeding here). Mr. Nathan made our stay very warm and welcoming. Every time he was around he put a smile on our faces. He was never far away to take care of our every need and truly made us feel special. Ms. Marianne and Ms. Lorgine at the front desk made us feel like family while still being professional and taking care of us. Ms. Rizza and Mr. Roland, the hotel management, were very professional and took great pride in their work. Mr. Jez and the Aqua Bar staff on the beachfront were always warm, enthusiastic, and cheerful. Mr. Lito and JR, the cooks for the hotel restaurant, El Patio, were excellent and made every meal special. Ms. Adele and the housekeeping staff worked tirelessly every day making sure that even the vacant rooms were maintained daily, and I can thank them for having such a beautiful and clean room for our stay. The diving staff was fantastic and very thorough with all aspects of the dive. Ms. Faith brightens the dive shop with her smile. Mr. Warren, the divemaster, and Mr. Marvel were outstanding in assisting us with our first dive and Mr. Chot, the dive instructor, is amazing with his lessons and dive expertise making the entire Open Water Course enjoyable and informative. The diving staff knows all of the best locations for diving and love exploring them with you so you are in very good hands when underwater with them. Thank you to the entire staff here for making our trip to Puerto Galera such an incredible and memorable experience. Our anniversary was only 1 day but the staff here made the entire week feel like a celebration. A week filled with so much fun and adventure, we loved it here!

Went there last May with pldt officemates for our division teambuilding and planning. Great venue for such because they have function rooms and lots of rooms to accommodate all of us.

ROOMS: fully-furnished, there's no elevator though so you gotta move those legs if room is located at the 3rd floor. AC is working properly. CR is nice, with glass sliding shower doors

STAFF: friendly and accommodating. Assisted us in setting up the function room for our planning session. Also transported our NUMEROUS baggages without hesitation.

FOOD: buffet style. Food variety is excellent. Located on the ground floor and 4th floor.

AMENITIES: kiddie and adult pool that is open until the wee hours of the night. gotta walk for 5-7 minutes to reach the beach. Walkway is well-lighted at night.

CRUISE: since we had a group booking, we enjoyed a 2-hour sunset cruise! Food, drinks and music was offered during the entire trip. We thought that 2 hours is loooong but it wasn't. Just right. Actually(3 hour cruise would be better. =) )

We booked this hotel at the last minute and it was more expensive than other accommodations that we had before. However, the service and the rooms were excellent. We tried to catch the last trip to Puerto and the staff at the port in Batangas arranged a lot for us. The front desk staff was always there to assist and they even arranged a shuttle to Muelle port when the last boat on White Beach was full. Pool was nice, very romantic even if it's a bit small. We got a free room upgrade and it was a big room with a wonderful toilet and bath. Breakfast (included in the rate) is buffet but food was not spectacular though. Overall, it was a great stay. (Tip: You can request the restaurant to serve your order by the poolside)

A pleasent resort to stay. 200 meters from the beach where they have a restaurant and bar. Rooms are small but for a short stay there is nothing to complain. Very friendly staff.
Look out for the hotel representative at the port. You have to go through security.

The Marco Vincent Dive Resort is truly a one of a kind resort hotel in the Philippines. Despite all the noise, hustle and bustle of life in a Filipino town when you step into the lobby of the hotel you step into an oasis. The staff are courteous and efficient...smiles everywhere. The hotel is built around a large swimming pool that looks so refreshing you want to jump right in. The hotel restaurant includes a pool side dining area. Western style and Filipino foods are on the menu...all delicious. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel also has a beach side restaurant that is about a five minute walk from the hotel. If diving is in your plans, the Marco Vincent Dive Resort includes a full up PADI dive school. The resort maintains several dive boats.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.
