Our team of researchers from BatStateU - VIP CORALS went to Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro to conduct our marine research last January 2020. We stayed in Scandi Divers during this period and they made sure our stay was as convenient, fun, and safe as possible. They went above and beyond when assisting us during our work, specially with logistics and communication with the LGU and residents. All the staff were kind and accommodating. Sir Medina was always exceptionally helpful and also very fun to be around with. All facilities and equipment were clean and well maintained. All health protocols were observed during our stay. We'll definitely be back again when we get the chance, perhaps even just for leisure. Thank you, Scandi Divers Team!
We stayed here for work last January. They were very accommodating and had strict rules regarding social distancing especially in the resto, which is good. Shos that they care for their guests. Rooms were clean. Each room was provided with sanitation kits. Lots of soap and towels. Disinfectant sprays. We felt really safe. Staff were courteous. Food was great! Affordable rates plus great service. We could not ask for more!
Since the locked down in manila, its almost a year for not traveling in PH, so we decided to go Puerto Galera to spend our vacation. The admin Anie of the scandi divers planned everything for us to enjoy our vacation, from the private transfer (van and boat) to the resort and Open Water dive course. The staffs and our dive instructor Rex and dive master Romeo are really friendly and professional. We are the only guest in house and also in big lalaguna beach I guess, so its really relaxing and quiet. Also you can explore more by renting the motorbike from sabang and ride to white beach and puerto galera. The dive lesson was fun as we saw the turtle, sea rabbit, stone fish, nemo, sea snake and electric cramp.
Good place for everyone a d everything, people there are nice, services are good, and the most important thing that, it's quite for relaxing. and good place for diving because of the pandemic, corals and fishes and sea turtles, and some time even sharks.
Location: Beautiful! Its in located in a pretty, peaceful bay. Surrounded by green Palmtrees and the water just in front of the resort. From the ferry in Puerto Galera its a 20 min drive. You can walk to Sabang in about 15 min, where you can find some shops and restaurants as well as a beachbar. Accommodation: Great! The AC is well working. The bed was comfortable and you wake up to the sound of crashing waves. The room was clean and the friendly housekeeping asked us every day if the room needs to be cleaned. And even some extras like tea, soap, coffee and water was included. Restaurant: Delicious! The menue has lots of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Its always fresh cooked with lots of regional ingredients. Its also possible to change dishes if you have any special needs like vegetarian. Stuff: Awesome! The stuff made us feel like home. Everyone of them was always helpful, friendly and kind. They helped us with our luggage, they always made sure we had everything we needed and even remembered our names. Diving: Breathtaking! Because of different experiences in Asia we didnt expect to be surrounded by a qualified and experienced dive crew. Scandi divers surprised us positively and we always felt save and could enjoy every dive. You will see lots of fishes, colourful corals and a few wrecks. Highly recommended!…
