This was my second visit to the dive resort.The first one was back in October 2012. It was good then and it is good now. The dive operation was as good as ever. The staff was friendly and helpful. They set up all your gear and offer you a hot towel after your dive. I had Jamie as a private...

Be forewarned the rooms with a sea view are several floors up and the walk can be tiring after several daily dives. Rooms are comfortable with cold A/C, hot showers and intermittent WIFI access. Lobby always has access. Spa offers nail care and massages or the front desk can order a massage in your A/D room for $17.50 an hour....

I have been staying at El Galleon on and off since 2002 and I still love it. I have been here for diving 6 times now. The diving is great, but I always feel like meeting family again when I am here. The Point Bar is conveniently located right at the foot of the dock and the restaurant serves up...

We stayed 2 nights in the luxury section of El Galleon resort - in studio of Waimea. At first we were surprised that we had to go quite far away from El Galleon reception (through other resorts and uphill) to reach Waimea. But the result was excellent - it is a secluded heaven of 4 beutiful cottages each of which...

I am continually blown away by the amazing service and great food at El Galleon. The diving was amazing and the dive team professional, thoughtful and fantastically friendly. We went over Easter weekend which I thought would be really hectic, but in fact everyone made us feel very special - as always. This time we stayed at their annex which...

The food here is excellent. The rooms are reasonable and lovely. The staff members are always there for you, extremely generous and helpful. The private transport which picked me and my friends up in Manila has been guaranteed with smooth and swift transition! Nice! Also went for a Discover Dive with Asia Divers in the Coral Garden of Puerto Galera....

The short review: Stay here, eat here, dive here, and drink here (after 5:30 p.m.) The longer review: Perfectly situated along a rocky strand (with an amazing, aircraft carrier of a dock), El Galleon is a no frills resort aimed at people who love to dive. The rooms are spare bordering on Spartan, but they are clean, cool, and offer...

Great resort with fantastic staff. Nice room with oceanview. Very good food and very cold beer at the bar. Diving is very well organised with great staff. Healthy reefs with lots of fish and small critters. The Verde Island trip is a "must do".

This is a wonderful hotel where the staff are so happy and friendly and do everything possible to make you welcome. I stayed in the hotel with my husband and I dived every day as the diving is a hop and a skip away..... next door. My husband does not dive but found wandering the streets in Sabang, interesting and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Renowned for its serene and quaint beachfront surroundings fronting Small La Laguna Beach, Puerto Galera, Asia Divers and El Galleon Beach Resort and have thirty air-conditioned rooms that blend into the tropical hillside. Majestic views of Sabang Bay and Small Lalaguna Beach, with a restaurant which extends to the water’s edge offering a great value in European and local cuisine, a small pool for learning how to dive, spa, and all the hotel amenities and necessities one needs to totally enjoy his/her stay. The dive facility is less than a year old and there is nothing like it in Asia! We have a diving platform with a large pontoon where boats can easily dock making it easy for guests to get on and off the boats. Divers have their own crate for storage in a spacious area, a dedicated camera room; you are well looked after by the crew who are there to help you with anything you may need. ... more   less
