The place was nice but needs improvement. The room is okay, nothing special about it. Even though the pool gets cleaned every night, still alot of insects were in the pool The Best thing in here was their food, PIZZA!! A lil bit pricey but Delicious!! The staffs are accommodating and they give in to our requests. Overall, 6/10 needs...

We've searched places and happened to browse some goo reviews about this resort. And indeed, it the place is exactly what we are looking for. Uncrowded and peaceful with WHITE SAND plus pool!

I read the reviews here before booking but too see is to believe so I pushed through in staying here and indeed the location was perfect-peaceful and clean. The rooms are really the downside of it. 1. Location Perfect! Who says Puerto Galera is a crowded place? White sand, clear water, few people-mostly foreigners and clean! This is perfect for...

We transferred to this resort from another one after a very very bad experience. BEACH: My wife and I had the same thought when we first got there... We should have stayed here since day 1. The beach front was awesome. It reminded us of El Nido, Palawan. If you want a peaceful chill out vibe, this is the best...

We have spent here a couple of nights and the room are definitely pricey for what they offer. The bath is very small and airconditioning is noisy, and most of all there is totally NO internet, despite it should be included. The room are really few steps from the beach, which is spacious and clean. The swimming pool doesn't look...

A must place to stay in Puerto Galera. Away from the noisy white beach area. Friendly and accomodating staff. The Resort is run Giorgio Barello and his Son Ermano and his partner Mira.The private beach is awesome and the diving with Ermano the dive Master will take your breath away (not lterally) deep wall dives are amazing,also kayaking and snorkelling...

For second time around I still love this place. A very quiet yet relaxing, an island away from the noisy city. We had a perfect climate, ideal water tides and crystal water. In short we had so much fun. #WhenInGalera Tip: if you want peaceful and relaxing environment this is the place you surely need. Highly recommend this place.

The service was good. Rooms are average but clean. The resort is beachfront and very near to restaurants. What i love most is the rocky part of the shore which has a great view and has very clear waters. I prefer this side of Puerto Galera.

The room rate is very affordable. reasonable as they say. But unacceptable for the room amenities. When we stay there, there's only one soap placed inside the room and four towels only to think that we are five in the room. I guess that's their way of saying that's what we've paid for. lol. But the resort ambiance is very...
