I have been to Puerto Galera lots of times and usually stayed at White Beach (I've also stayed at Coco Beach before). This time, we opted for a more secluded resort and so chose Sunset at Aninuan. the resort does not disappoint in terms of location - it is ideal as it is sort of secluded (a rock formation separates it from white beach) and so is very quiet. Our group felt like we had our very own private resort the whole time we were there! It is, however, very close to white beach, just a few minutes tricycle ride (very costly thoughh, P100 per ride) or the staff can also arrange transport using the resort's own jeepney or you canopt to walk (15-20 minutes).
They have a lot of water activities (at no added cost) - like kayaks, paddleboat, snorkeling gears. There is a huge coral very near the resort where people can go snorkeling. The resort next door offers banana boat rides.
The staff is wonderful - from the bar attendants to Les, the manager. They made us feel welcome and special from the time we arrived to the time we left . There was always someone ready to help/assist us in our needs.
The food was a bit of a letdown as it was pricey (especially for a group of 16) and not very appetizing I must say.
All in all, my experience with this resort was very good. Just make sure you choose the rooms in the new wing/building. They are much more expensive but well worth it (we stayed in one of the old rooms on our first night but moved to one of the new ones the next day).
If you're planning on going to Puerto Galera, I'd highly recommend this place.
