Badladz Dive Resort may be pretty basic as a hotel ... with simply-furnished rooms and a rustic, thatched-roof veranda for a restaurant ... but it is comfortable, the kitchen is excellent, and the dive-boat is moored on the jetty in front of the place. The view of Puerto Galera harbor, from the veranda and the terrace in front of your...

Good 4 days spent on Badladz Dive Resort where I could enjoy the dive certification with skilful professionnel and smiling hosts. The restaurant of the hotel is also a plus for tasting Philipinos food. I recommend the place for any divers who want to pass the certifications with the amazing undersea landscape with some turtles and giant clams.

A perfect weekend dive trip. From the car transfers from/to Manila, to the room, meals and diving, everything was excellent. The dive shop is 100m from the pier at Muelle, and I stayed at the beach resort which is a P50 tricycle ride away (5 mins). Gavin, the manager, was extremely helpful and the diving (including a trip to Verde...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The best of the Puerto Galera resorts! Our hotel is small, quiet and very clean. Located on the Yacht Harbour in Puerto Galera Bay at the "quiet" end of the main tourist pier, Muelle Pier. Our location is very convenient for travelers. You will be only 6 km from both Sabang and White Beach making it the best of both worlds. This makes it a nice alternative to the crowds at both these locations yet close enough to enjoy these spots, far enough away for rest and relaxation. You simply MUST try our famous International restaurant. We are highly rated here on TripAdvisor and serve the best Mexican food on the island. If you have come to learn how to dive, whether you are a complete beginner and just started learning to dive, or you’re an experienced diver looking to expand your qualifications, you’ve come to the right place. Our in-house dive shop offers you everything you need to discover the beautiful underwater world of Puerto Galera – no matter what your skill level is. We’ll take you to the best diving spots in Puerto Galera, which is one of the most beautiful bays in the world. You will find that staying here at BADLADZ Dive Resort is great value for your money and offers many conveniences whether you're here to dive or to enjoy the surrounding activities. ... more   less

“I liked my room on the first floor above the dining-room veranda. Be prepared to climb some quite-rustic stone stairs.”
  • There's not much in the way of storage for your clothes and other 'stuff.' but it's enough.
  • The safe is barely big enough for an iPad or a Microsoft Surface.
  • The desk has a flat-screen TV above it. I paid 100 pesos a night extra for the fridge.
  • Bed is low-down, but comfortable ... the safe's on the night-stand.
  • Puerto Galera harbor, from the broad terrace in front of my room.
