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.

We had a good time at the resort. It was relaxing, the food was and the hosts were quite accommodating. They proactively reached out to book ferry tickets for us when they realized that the seats are limited due to cancellations caused by the cyclone.

The location is a bit hard to reach and you have to walk the last 800 metres. Its a great place to stay if you plan to do diving and related activities.

Hi Gaurav Sorry for the delay in replying, but somehow we missed your review and sending a follow up reply as we always do. Apologies for that. It was a pleasure having you stay at Out of the Blue (OOTB) and, yes, it was a hectic time with all the ferry cancellations. But we were only too happy to help. You will also be pleased to hear that all the renovations to the walk way and path from Sabang beach, and the new shoreline infrastructure there, has been nearly completed. It is a much more pleasant walk now. We hope to see you again soon.

Out of the Blue is a perfect place to spend your vacation in Puerto Galera. They offer quality rooms for single, couples as well as for families. The rooms are stylish equipped and the room cleaning every day is top. The Veranda Restaurant with a stoning view to the Ocean, offers Breakfast wich is included in the room rate and offers great food throughout the day. The Service team and Kitchen staff is very professional and friendly. One of the good things is also that the staff are long time employees. Not much more to add on, just great and highly recommended.

Absolutely cannot recommend this place highly enough. It's a little further down the seafront but tucked away from the noise while still being right on the water. The room was immaculate and spacious, cleaned every day and (surprisingly) mosquito-free. The restaurant offers fantastic food at a great price and the whole place has a family-run vibe. And it's this that I rate so highly about the place. I was solo traveling over the Christmas holiday and the ladies who run the hotel were so so welcoming and friendly. They offered for me to join their Christmas dinner and kept breakfast open to me 15-20 minutes late so I could catch the 9 am dive and still eat when I came back. They were all so lovely, it didn't feel like I was alone over the festive period. If I am ever to visit PG again, I'll 100% be staying at Out of the Blue.

Thank you so much for having me and for all the laughs.
Michael

Great stay in beautiful Sabang!

This hotel was a pleasent surprise! It is true that ratings and pictures showed me it most likely be a good place to stay, but it was even more then that!

We stayed in a suite with Jacuzzi with view over pool. The room was very clean and spacious... Brand new Jacuzzi, big bed and absolutely everything you needed was already in the room.

Balcony with view over the pool, good aircon and 1 kg free laundry for everyday. It's really is a pearl just a few minutes walk away from the busiest parts of Sabang.

All spaces kept clean at all times, fresh pool and great view from Verandah restaurant where you had your breakfast facing the palms and the ocean.
Great breakfast included and also the food here was superb!

The only thing I was just a little disappointed at was the cocktails, they displayed drinks and served me something that really wasn't like that I was expecting ( glas, sieze, consistent).

But the most important and the hotels best asset was the staff working here...
Great service, very personal and friendly staff working hard to give you the best experience possible. Absolutely top customer service!

This hotel also has a a great relationshop with a great divingshop - Action divers that will provide a first class diving experience!

So don't miss out of this Pearl in Sabang! We will definitely come back here for our next stay!

Good luck recording from the pandemic and we will see you again soon!

Best regards
John n Emelie

This is our third time here and we really loves this place for the convenient location next to our favourite dive shop, for their hospitality and big cozy rooms. Food is absolutely amazing and we barely were able to go through all our favourite dishes during our 12 day stay. Would clearly recommend this as a quiet and friendly place but yet close to shops and bars. Risk of gaining weight though!

I must come back. Out of the Blue was meant to be a quick stop in the middle of our backpacking trip around the Philippines, but it ended being so much more. This place is truly a gem, with amazing staff, great food and even better views!

Our room was perfectly placed in front of the pool, with the beach steps away. The weather was amazing too - what more could one ask for?

Highly highly recommend this place, and will be sure to make a trip back someday soon! If you're coming to Puerto Galera, please do yourself a favour and stay here, you won't regret it.

Just excellent. We stayed in a poolside spa suite. Brand new jacuzzi (2 person) which we loved. Brand new split air cons too. Everything as expected in a 4 star resort. Staff and amenities first rate. Complementary breakfast in the Veranda restaurant was exceptional too. We will be back.

Can transportation be provided from Manila airport and, if so, what is the cost?
Answer from Smeagol101
Royal Tunbridge Wells, United Kingdom27 contributions9 helpful votes
Yes, it costs 150. USD for 2 people. Or you can take the sea plane run by Air Juan. This costs 4700 PHP per person and takes 30 minutes. The flight leaves at 07:30 so unless your flight into Manilla arrives very early you would need to stay overnight in the Sofitel hotel which is very near to where the sea plane departs.
