I can’t speak highly enough of this lovely resort. The staff were friendly and helpful. The decor and layout of the rooms were beautiful. The food was excellent well deserved that high rating The word boutique is over used these days to describe properties but this I can truly say is a boutique resort

We came to Puerto Galera as a group of friends on a dive trip. Out of the Blue was the perfect location and the staff were incredibly helpful. i stayed in the one bedroom villa room which has a large double bedroom with ensuite a large living and dining area and a small kitchen It was wonderful views from large windows in both the living room and bedroom out over the Verde Islands straits and Luzon Island The place was clean, well maintained and comfortable and I felt well looked after for the whole stay. The restaurant similarly loooks out over the pool and the sea and servces a good range of local and international dishes. Action Divers - a very professionally run dive operation is adjacent to the resort which made our dive trips easy and enjoyable Thank you to the whole team for a great week.

We had a wonderful week in the 1 bedroom villa! The villa is very spacious with large windows that provide a great breeze and view of the ocean. The room was well mainteaned and very clean. We enjoyed the on site restaurant!. We did try other restaurant in the area but the Verandah had by far the best menu selection and presentations!! Sabang is very walkable from the hotel location but you are far enough away from all the business!! We enjoyed diving with Action divers which is very conveniently located at the base of the hotel. Great dive centre. Small groups, relaxing and full service is provided with your dive gear. Thanks to all for a great week. Nancy and Rob

5 days in a family stay in this hotel located on the sea side. We booked a villa (n*2) and a suite with Jacuzzi (n*4). View from the room is over the swimming pool, from the villa is all over the bay. The connections between rooms is made by staircase with a very nice view over the bay and both swimming pools. We loved the furniture in the rooms, the very simple and elegant decoration, the wide windows, the view of course, the jacuzzi in the suite is wonderful, the villa n*2 is just excellent with a nice equipment and terrace. Service is very kind, very caring : you could ask for a boat for outside activities (snorkeling, beach hopping, ...), or a car to visit the water falls. And always very kind and nice ! We also tried scuba diving at the below Action Divers : very nice and efficient ! Restaurant is just great in service and food (see The Verandah). One suggestion : improve lighting of the living room of villa 2 which is quite sad.

Excellent hotel. Very nice rooms, good staff and superb restaurant. The restaurant was a bit quiet but we were there in November which was the low season. To get from Sorong to the hotel you either take a tricycle (a real experience) after which you have a 4 to 500 metre walk to the hotel or a boat transfer which takes you directly to the hotel. The hotel will organise staff to carry your luggage in either case. Action divers is at the front of the hotel.

We took the 2 bedroom apartment located on the upper levels for 4 days and loved every minute of our stay. Friendly and informed staff made everything so easy. Added restaurant was by far and away the best food we have had in our 3 visits to Puerto Galera. The wait and kitchen staff were happy to make great recommendations and modify meals to vegetarian dishes. Wonderful stay.

This is a favourite place for divers but there's plenty for non-divers to enjoy. The beaches and snorkelling were fantastic. There's a small town with shops and boat/bike hire close by. The restaurant was excellent and well priced. We spent three months in the Philippines and this restaurant was the best of our eating experiences. Go for the tuna! Also, use the Mindoro Sprint from Batangas to get to the hotel. A bit more expensive but certainly worth the extra cost. Beware the porters in Batangas! They ask for excessive tips - 100 peso per bag. We had a great time and would definitely consider returning.

it’s a amazing place to stay I wish I could have extended my stay. I booked studio room (should have booked economy as I was alone) and it was very clean and having all the amenities. All the staff Rechel – receptionist, Glen – bar tender and Mac were very co-operative. I forgot my kindle in the room and Rechel called my India number first and sent someone to handover it to me at Muelle pier

Although it's a little walk from Sabang beach center (about 10 minutes), we really enjoyed staying here. Rooms were big, had a great view and quite. The restaurant "the Varnandah" was amazing (best yellow fin steak I ever had). Every meal was beyond expectations. Staff was super friendly. The only con was the WiFi was good in the restaurant but but weak in the room. I would recommend staying here.
