I inquired for the seaview room via their mobile number on their website. The response was very quick. On check-in on the same day I asked for a discount as I wanted them to have the advantage of me not booking via the Online Travelagent like Agoda. They gave me 5% discount which I was happy with including breakfast. The...

In july, we went for the second time to this resort. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The standrooms at the poolside are spacious and clean. They have airco, which is necessary at this time of the year. The open kitchen is located next to the open air restaurant. The french chef works with fresh ingredients, his staff knows...

This was my first time in the Philippines, and I really enjoyed the El Galleon. The staff were unfailingly polite & helpful, the food was very good, the prices were fair, and the diving was great. The resort is right on the shore, has its own pier & dive facility (operated by the very professional Asia Divers), and the whole...

We just can't resist going back to El Galeon and Asia Divers. In between visits we dive other areas in Asia but nothing beats the diving in PG with these guys. If you love diving then you have got to go with Asia Divers and stay at El Galeon. Oh, and make sure to dive Verde Island - awesome! Thanks...

Room overlooking the dive centre was spacious, cool with a comfy bed. Safe didn't work properly and efforts to fix were lacklustre. Room is cleaned only on request. Shower is cold but not freezing. Hotel only provides tiny bar of soap and a small shampoo squirter, plus two complimentary small bottles of water. Use supermarket in town to buy what...

Hi Winnie, sorry to hear about your stay. Let me give you the take on this, our transportation like most nearly all resorts here in Puerto Galera contract the transport out, both car and boat.

Nice bar with a great view of the ocean. Great drinks list and good bar food too. Our first stop on the island in a huge thunderstorm and they let us sit there for hours as the storm passed. Great service.
