Arkipelago Beach Resort is all about the people. Their staff is one of the friendliest & competent that you would come across in the industry, and it is these very people that make me go back again & again & again. The resort is exactly what they sell themselves as, a No-BS, Value for Money, Comfortable, Homely Dive Resort to stay at. A place for scuba divers to chill at and unwind after their day out at the ocean. Rooms vary from the basic standard rooms right upto a mildly luxurious duplex villa with a stunning view of the ocean. All rooms come with the essentials for a Scuba Diver like me - clean bed & linen, hot shower, good aircon. They have a restaurant with an ever-evolving menu primarily focussed on Chinese, Filipino & a mix of European & American dishes. The menu is varied enough to cater to the ever-demanding taste-buds of the hungry diver & otherwise. Add to this, a wonderfully equipped & staffed dive shop, Arkipelago Divers, Arkipelago Beach Resort is your go to place of stay when in Puerto Galera for Scuba Diving.

What a real gem! I have had the pleasure of staying with Arkipelago and by all means, this is one of my favorite places. I truly love the attention and impeccable service given by their staff and management. Attention to detail is a norm here and Amy is always able and willing to make your request happen. Between Amy and Pedro, you can be assured of a wonderful and exciting stay like we have had! Whether you are an experienced diver or beginner like me, Pedro (with 28 years of experience) will insure you enter the water comfortably and confidently. It will be a total blast! Of course Amy has a whole slew of other exciting adventures waiting for those not inclined to get in the water (like my little one). Really, the accommodations and services provide are wonderful but, my favorite part is the awesome food and drinks! All of the food is homemade and the best part is you can make requests (like a good BBQ steak). Definitely try the beverages on any of the three decks, just can’t beat an evening drink on one of the decks with great company while watching the sunset or kids playing in the beach! Obviously, I definitely recommend this awesome place! Try it yourself!!!!!

Looking for a place to relax or want to take a short holiday from busy Manila? Go to Puerto Galera, stay and dive with Arkipelago Beach Resort. You will be impressed with the Service of the Resort especially the Managers; Mr Pedro & Ms Amy Magsino. The resort are clean, room are spacious. A simple resort yet make you feel at home. Want to have a stress free holiday, experience your holiday with Arkipelago Beach Resort, you will not regret! Had fun & relax Holy Week in Puerto Galera. Do avail the Private Taxi, it takes you only 40mins to d resort rather than the 2hours boat ride. The resort is able to organise the transfer.

My wife and I went there with friends last Nov 6-8. Extended our stay up to Nov 9 due to a mild typhoon. We're going back and bringing with us more friends to do their PADI Open Water Course there on Dec 18-21. Basically, it was a breeze. Amy and the entire Arkipelago team were very accommodating. They took care of everything, from our travel needs (getting tested, water taxi, etc.) to, especially, our diving needs. During our stay, their restaurant was still adjusting to the new normal created by the pandemic -- reduced manpower. However, that did not deter from the exceptional food they served. Other features you might find helpful are as follows: - the water pressure is amazing and the hot water was consistent - there's wifi in the establishment, though I did not have the chance to use, but the LTE was quite fast - the air conditioning in the rooms was surprisingly cool - the divemasters were fun and professional - it's absolutely safe as everyone is tested before setting foot to the establishment Just relax and have fun!

Our family enjoyed our stay at Arkipelago. Amy the GM gave the most courteous and attentive service that exceeded all our expectations. She was very organized that took care of our trip from beginning to end. Amy is Covid aware and made sure all precautions were in place to make sure our family felt safe while traveling. The villa was lovely, clean , and had a gorgeous view of the beach. Home made food was delicious and the staff always welcomed us with a smile every day. Pedro was patient and helped make our Padi certification fun and easy to understand. He was dedicated in making sure we learn safety and enjoyed ourselves. Special thanks to our little beautiful Mia for her dance lessons and hospitality❤️ There is not enough good things I can say about the Arkipelago family. We will definitely be back!

I was there one week, went elsewhere for a week and returned for another. Sabang Beach Is a very busy place, and displaces that the quiet and of the beach. This said, it is only about a 5 to 10 minute walk to the heart of the village. I stayed in one of the larger units [A villa], and my son stayed in a standard room. Both were great, but the villa certainly a little more special. There is a very casual atmosphere, and you get to know the staff pretty quickly. If you choose to eat there, you will find the food more than adequate. Definitely on my list for next year!

My dive group stumbled upon this deal at the last ADEX (2019). They made us an offer that we couldn't refuse! A total of 6 divers eventually made it! Amy, the manager, was very responsive right from the start. We were kept informed on the charges for diving, transfer arrangements and accommodation on the island. Everything was well organized. We received a very warm welcome on arrival. Rental gears were well maintained and looked new. The diving & boat crews were excellent and really went out of their way to ensure that our dives went without any hitch. All our dives were done with back roll boat entry. Dive sites are typically only a few minutes boat ride from the resort. There were some very accessible wreaks too. Rooms were adequate for the purpose but the wifi could be better. We stayed in the standard rooms. The pool view ones were definitely very impressive. Food wise, I wasn't terribly impressed but it's ok. It's very heavy on szechuan influence. I feel that their cuisine needs to be broadened. Breakfast was great! Staff at the resort (both restaurant and housekeeping staffs) were all friendly and polite. Amy made sure she spent some time with us at the end of each diving day to just have drink and chat with us. Made all of us feel very at home. She even arranged for a "Lechon nite"! All in all, we all had a great time! Definitely worth considering for your next dive trip to the Philippines.

I have been coming to Puerta Galera for around 14 years, and stayed in a variety of places. I can happily say that Amy and her Punta Galera are by far the best I have stayed in. From the initial contact, by both phone and email, where the replies were all very accomodating and helpful, my experiences have only been positive. The rooms are a good size, the aircon is efficient and quiet. Front desk staff were always happy and very helpful. The mini safe is a little smaller than most that people may come across, but still a nice feature in the room. I stayed in a Seaview room, which while not a full panoramic view, still had a very nice balcony. Definitely a great place to stay and I will certainly be happy to stay there again next time.
