Staff were friendly and attentive to our needs. Hotel is located at the top of a very steep hill but offers free shuttle service with a driver on call who can bring you to the beaches or the ports anytime from 7am to 10pm. Since the terrain is hilly, the buildings are built at multiple levels, and you need to go up and down many stairs (no elevators), so it's not recommended for PWD or the elderly. The deluxe rooms are large, and open out to a spacious balcony with a wonderful view of the mountains. It's very quiet and relaxing - a totally different vibe from the noise and crowds at White Beach. Resort is not on the beach front, but White Beach is a 5-minute drive, and Aninuan Beach is a short walk. What we liked is that given its "central" location and the free shuttle, we were able to explore all 3 main beaches - White Beach, Aninuan Beach and Talipanan Beach. They provide free pocket wifi, and free distilled water from a large dispenser, which are also much appreciated. The room is clean upon check-in, but they don't clean everyday (we stayed 3 nights and the room was never cleaned). It seems they only do it upon request. The mattress is of good quality, but the beddings are thin. They also need to replace the bath towels and sterilize them well. The pool is also clean but the jacuzzi was not working when we were there. The pool area has a small bar, but the pool itself is not lighted at night so we had to swim in the dark. The restaurant's food is good, but they need to improve the menu variety and food service was a bit slow (takes 30 mins. to an hour). We wanted to try their ATV at the Nature Park but the trails were unfortunately damaged by the recent typhoon. Resort amenities were basic but sufficient. This resort is a lot better than those located on the beach front which have similar price points but fewer amenities and less pleasant surroundings. Overall it was a good stay and worth the discounted price in Agoda.

Room tip: For a small price difference vs. standard rooms, choose the deluxe rooms which have a refrigerator and a large balcony with a view

Tribal hill mountain resorts is my Puerto Galera’s home. The owner of a hotel is from Britain, has been living in Puerto Galera for many years, knows everything about this area. The manager is Lea, who solves all issues and helps all the time, drivers Jessie and Jap are super operational guys who were ready to bring me / pick up before I was ready) The restaurant is an amazing place with a paradise view and delicious breakfasts. It’s not overpricy. The rooms are spacious, the view is amazing, the bath is so so) Sometimes there wasn’t hot water. The bed is perfect, king size. I read negative reviews about the lack of a hairdryer, a kettle and more ... I came up, asked, a minute and everything is there. You should just ask Lea) I’m not happy with the cigarette smell...when the neighbors smoked, the terrible smell was everywhere. The pool is quite clean and big. Filipino coffee on the terrace in the mountains, with roosters somewhere below, such a good morning) Thanks a lot! Hope I’ll back soon)

I was lucky enough to find this resort in early May 2019 for 6 nights. I loved every minute. Owen and his lovely wife Maying have built a beautiful resort in the hills overlooking the area below. The views from the restaurant are fabulous. There are many pleasant employees ready to enhance your vacation in every way possible. If you have time, try to get up to his Tribal Hills Adventure Park for a once in a lifetime experience. The attractions of White Beach are only a short ride down the mountain. Also, I found that the Mangyan village, nearby, was a unique experience. White Beach does not have any ATMs that I know of and the credit card network was not working upon my check out, so bring some extra cash before arrival. The girls that work in the restaurant are as sweet as sweet can be. Owen, Maying and the entire staff are extremely pleasant and helpful at every opportunity. I guarantee you will fall in love with this resort.

First time we stayed here was way back in June 2016 for a 3 night 4 day stay at their Deluxe Suite for 3 adults and 1 child. Despite the weather our vacation was superb.

After 3 years we came back as a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) plus 1 companion and stayed at their Penthouse for 4 nights and 5 days. Wife was 4 months pregnant with our 3rd child and with 2 restless kids in tow, comfort was a priority for us during this trip and their Penthouse gave us a feel of home. The Suite came with a fully functional kitchen with everything you need to make family meals. The living room had 2 sofas and a flat screen TV, and the bed room had 2 king size beds comfortable to fit all five of us. Best part of the Suite was that it had a balcony that gives you the best view of the area and more that enough space for the kids to run and play.

Since my wife was pregnant we opted to avail of their rates without breakfast as she loves to cook. We booked the resort shuttle (500 pesos back and forth) to take us to the town to get things we needed at the market. Do take note that there is a small grocery and small meat shops in the immediate area however because of my wife's cravings we made the short trip to town. Our shuttle driver, Jessie, was very accommodating as he showed us the market stalls to get the best meat cuts we wanted.

We took the shuttle daily to Aninuan Beach which is around a 3 minute ride from the resort. You have about a 2 minute trail walk from the drop off point before coming out to the beachfront fronting the Ayala's rest house which sprawls along the stretch of Aninuan Beach. If you want peace and quiet at the same time enjoy swimming without worrying about your belongings on the sand then this is the beach I'd recommend you go to however if you want to see people around you with resorts and restaurants as your backdrop and beach activities then I'd recommend going over to the White Beach area.

The only only activity we did was the island hopping which was organized by Val. He booked us a small boat for 1800 pesos (boat prices may vary depending on the size of the boat and the season) good enough to fit 3 adults and 2 kids. The 1st stop was the coral gardens which we all enjoyed - I suggest you avail of the smaller boat (about 200 pesos per head) once you reach the coral gardens to take you nearer as the regular sized boats are not permitted near the area. Take note that it is a long way if you opt to swim to the coral gardens from the drop point. From here we did not anymore go the the giant clam area anymore and decided to head for the island to enjoy the beach and have lunch. I recommend you pack your lunch and enjoy it when you stopover on the island, if you don't like to cook then the resort will be able to prepare your meals for you for the island hopping trip.

The other activities you can try are the Tamaraw and Aninuan Falls, the ATV trek offered at Tribal Hills, and Archery.

This was our last hurrah for a vacation before school starts and overall we all had a blast. We definitely will come back to Tribal Hills when my wife give birth and we will always consider it home away from home.

Service is excellent and we commend Shayne for taking care of our booking reservations for both vistis, Lea for taking care of our daily needs in the hotel, Kuya Jojo for shuttling us back and forth to the port, Kuya Jessie for shuttling around town and and Aninuan Beach whenever we wanted.

To the owners and the rest of the staff...Thank you much for making our stay wonderful! We will see you soon.
Jessie Val Jojo Lea

Room tip: Either the Penthouse room with a 360 view or the Deluxe Suite room with the balcony that gives you the sea view and mountain view.
