El Galleon made booking and planning easy, despite the major time difference, by returning all emails within 24 hours and answering all of my questions. The lodge is comfortable with excellent service. Rooms are quite small but the beds are very comfortable. The dive operator, Asia Divers, is exceptional, offering five dives per day. The dive sites are remarkably beautiful with a variety of undersea terrain including reefs that are stunning and in great condition. The dive staff took great care of all divers, caring for our gear between and after diving and offering superb guidance underwater. Rides to the dive sites were typically 5-10 minutes, except to Verde Island which is about 20 minutes and well worth the time and the surcharge. At this time the dollar is strong relative to the peso, so everything comes at great value to the American diver.

A fantastic time, in and above the water.

I’ve just spent 10 days at El Galleon diving with friends. I can’t say enough positive things about this resort. The rooms are comfortable and cleaned with care. The food is delicious and plentiful. We chose the full board option which made it so convenient to plan meals around dive times. Asia divers is one of the best dive operations I’ve experienced. They have a focus on safety and customer satisfaction. From the first day when we dropped off our dive gear until the last day of diving, our equipment was taken care of, tanks were set up between dives and all we had to do was have fun! The diversity of marine life in Puerto Galera is extraordinary. From thresher sharks to mimic octopuses, we saw so much. Finally, a shout out to Allison who took such good care of us. This resort has it all. Don’t hesitate to plan a dive vacation here.

Nice little beachfront hotel, very friendly and responsive staff. Well designed keeping vegetation in mind. Only downside is the air conditioning makes the noise of a jet engine. The hotel is only accessible on foot (10min walk along the seafront), but the staff will help you carry our luggage.

El Galleon Resort and Dive is the Greatest. I was there a month and will return! The resort is very clean and the rooms are serviced daily or as requested with high standards. The restaurant has some of the best tasting food on the island. The Asia Divers are a complete, safe, knowledgeable and well organized group. The underwater photography was excellent and I was able to photo many good pictures! The entire staff at the resort and dive shop are top of the line, meeting the needs of your experience. Also they have opportunity for off site activities for adventure. As a 55 year diver, age 77 and diver of the world, I HIGHLY recommend this resort and dive operation. I would like to recommend individuals at the resort but I cannot for they are all were great at their position and friendliness!

Just spent a week at an exciting resort full of fun people and alluring scuba diving. The service was excellent and food superb. I enjoyed a mix of Asian and western foods. A delicious assortment from juice bar and cocktail bar. I had a relaxing Thai massage after a long week of diving. Thanks to Darwin and boat captain Eric for keeping us safe and our dive guide Ann who pointed out local treasures such as Pygmy seahorses, electric clams, nudibranchs of various sizes and colors. The clouds of fish on the reefs were breathtaking. Compared to other tropical destinations I was pleased to find very few urchins and lionfish. The sites are plush. Our favorite was Verde island. A bit of boat ride but well worth it. The dive shop was able to help us with gear assistance and guidance. If you think this might be something you want do contact Ally the operation manager at the hotel and she can answer all your questions.

Excellent from first contact, for the 4- day stay, all dives and meals. Allison and her team are extremely professional, helpful and genuinely happy to see you. The Christmas Eve meal was delicious and the complimentary Christmas Day cocktail greatly appreciated. Allison also gave us an upgrade to avoid us having to change rooms in the middle of our stay - thank you! The Asia Divers are exceptional - I dived with four guides who were all knowledgeable but special shouts out to Rhea who absolutely loves what she does. My partner studying his Open Water certification speaks highly of Kat’s multilingual instruction in both English and Mandarin. Small touches like the boatmen and porters greeting us by name having not been introduced really set this dive shop apart. Sitting by the sea in the hotel restaraunt between dives was a pleasure. We would both be happy to return to the resort to stay again and to dive.
