We decided to travel to an island far away from the current Chaos. We were 4 families. The hotel organized 2 very nice 7 seaters and then after a 2 hr drive, there was a speed boat waiting at the dock to take us to Puerto Gallera. (45 Min ride) As soon as we landed at the resort the staff welcomed us. Everything from there on was great! I stayed at the penthouse -- very nice with a large terrace where we grilled etc. This is a dive resort so largely divers come here. My daughter did her first drive as well. The bar area is really nice with friendly staff. Not exorbitantly priced-- food was great!! Loved it! Will be back!

Highly recommended! We had a great time with family and friends, enjoying the very professional service combined with the always friendly and welcoming atmosphere of literally everyone in the staff. While everything worked, was well organized and convenient, we felt like we were amongst friends :). I only had good things to say about the dive center and its staff, who prioritize safety, while making you also have a good time. Two thumbs up! Right now the construction is a slight nuisance, but once finished, the upgraded resort and the pool area will be great. The menu could use a bit more local seafood & fish options, but food overall was good. Look forward to going back very soon!

One of the very few places available for an escape out of Manila after 7/8 months of quarantine! We stayed a full week. So I was contend just seeing the kid out and about at the beach, in a covid free/safe environment! 1. Transport: These guys can arrange it for you (road/boat package). I however drove myself to the port (2-3 hours from Manila) . The boat ride (30-45min) is REALLY expensive (Php10,000 one way) so you have to be desperate like me!...:) 2. COVID-10 test : same day test is required to go to Puerto Galera. The resort has deal/arrangements with an accredited lab, so can be arranged quickly (~Php4500 pp). 3. Accommodation: I had to walk up few stairs (good exercise!) but the deluxe suite was so worth it!. All amenities needed. Very comfy bed. The Jacuzzi was fun. Superb view. I would however recommend that Management looks into fumigating soon to chase out the ants. 4.Food/Bar: No "haute cuisine" but it is OK. I would not take any "food package" as it turns out that there are exclusions that were not disclosed as such. Also, I found out a bit late that there were some restaurants opened a tricycle ride away, so worth exploring. 5. Other facilities: My daughter enjoyed the pool very much. The gym has potential but really need to be cleaned up, and equipment better maintained/upgraded. 6. Activities: Diving from 8 years old . Snorkeling trip was unfortunately not a good experience for us but Management swiftly addressed the issue, offering a commercial gesture in compensation. 7. Staff: All friendly and eager to help. 8. Others: Construction is ongoing next door as the resort is expanding but there is no noise nuisance. I would also recommend that restaurant provides receipts for daily purchases so that to avoid unnecessary inconvenience at check out. All in all, this place clearly has a good manager and if you are a diver, this is the place for you!

My wife and I stayed here three times so far. The rooms are recently remodeled well-kept. The food and the service is fantastic! And the best part of all is the scuba diving Conan The dive instructor Also the head of the dive shop help my wife with her advanced diving he was very patient and thorough.
