I'll be back!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Feb 21, 2024
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.

We had a wonderful experience with a warm welcome at the hotel, creating a good feeling, especially since it was our 1st wedding anniversary. The staff made it special, adding an amazing lovely touch to our celebration.
Every single staff member is friendly, the food is excellent and the service outstanding! We can say this was one of the best places we’ve ever been. Thank you all and we hope to come back again sometime.

We stayed here for a week of the best diving I have experienced anywhere. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The food and service was absolutely amazing. They arranged for our travel to and from Manila in a private car and water taxi. I will absolutely be returning for another adventure.

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.

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.
