Had a great time with the crew at El Galleon. Really friendly staff in the resort and the Dive Crew were great. Verde Island was a top dive spot...from 20 metres and up...unbeatable. The food was good (local and more American/Asian), plentiful and good value....More

Thanks so much Tom. We really appreciate this and very happy you enjoyed your stay with us. We're very lucky to have our own private pier and it does make it very comfortable for our guests to use it for diving.

About
Description
Renowned for its serene and quaint beachfront surroundings fronting Small La Laguna Beach, Puerto Galera, Asia Divers and El Galleon Beach Resort and have thirty air-conditioned rooms that blend into the More tropical hillside. Majestic views of Sabang Bay and Small Lalaguna Beach, with a restaurant which extends to the water’s edge offering a great value in European and local cuisine, a small pool for learning how to dive, spa, and all the hotel amenities and necessities one needs to totally enjoy his/her stay. The dive facility is less than a year old and there is nothing like it in Asia! We have a diving platform with a large pontoon where boats can easily dock making it easy for guests to get on and off the boats. Divers have their own crate for storage in a spacious area, a dedicated camera room; you are well looked after by the crew who are there to help you with anything you may need. Less
