Bamboo Beach Resort
Ranked #44 of 54 Hotels in Puerto Galera
Reviewed 14 June 2016

We stayed at Bamboo beach resort and the place is so serene, perfect for a relaxing vacation.

Owners are very nice and accommodating. Offered us a day tour at Bucana Beach just accross the resort and luckily we owned the beach to ourselves that day!

Family-run resort with Dennis the manager ensuring everything runs smoothly. Breakfast included in the price and the omelettes are tasty and filling. Ask for fresh milk for tea and it will be supplied. Rooms at the back are bigger but you get some kitchen noise which you get used to. A great budget choice compared with rival places.

It was easy check in/out. Staff was nice. Food was adequate. Room was small with no wifi even though the ad said there was wifi in rooms. Had to go to main restaurant for the wifi. There was no bar even though the ad said there was. There was construction work going on from 8 am until 11 pm. White beach is walking distance by road. Approximately 30 min walk but there are a lot of stray dogs on the road. The place was very quiet other than the construction work. Beach was nice but you will need water shoes as it is a bit rocky. I just felt it was overpriced for what you get. There is really nothing to do there but relax. There is no night life at all. You have to go to White Beach for that.

For those looking for a quiet place to stay in Puerto Galera, Bamboo Beach Resort might just be the perfect fit for you - away from the noise of other usually-crowded places like White Beach. You get a great view of the sea while having your meal at a nipa hut in the garden. The caretaker can cook the food for you during your stay at an affordable amount (we like her cooking!), or you can do it yourselves if you want to. She's also very accommodating during our stay; we can ask her anything we need and she'd gladly assist us.

I really had a good sleep in this place, too, since it's very quiet and not too hot or cold. The morning view is so refreshing. Complimentary breakfast is just okay.

Perhaps the only problems we encountered were no electricity for several hours (no generator) on our 2nd and 3rd day. It's a con for you if you're into partying in White Beach or exploring other places during your whole stay in Puerto Galera since it would require a banca trip which would cost 250 for one way, and doubles to 500 for night trip. That's only to and from Muelle port, you'd still have to go take a tricycle to White Beach. If you're a group of 4-6 and your budget permits, that wouldn't be a big deal anyway like in our case. Also, I think their price list for water activities and island hopping are a bit high (P1800 for 2 persons, for all activities like snorkelling, underwater cave, giant clam, etc. plus around P800 per beach like Long Beach for island hopping). But anyway, the service was okay and we enjoyed the activities so I guess that's good value for money.

Overall, I'd recommend this place to those looking for a place to stay when going to Puerto Galera.

Room Tip: The family suite (good for 5 persons) is a nice room to get. It has a veranda, a hammock, round tabl...

If you need a relatively low-key, secluded location for a weekend get-away, Bamboo Beach is a great option. The resort is nestled in the hillside at Daluruan, across the bay from Muelle, with some excellent views of the water.

The Couples room we stayed in was comfortable, breezy, and well-maintained. In the morning, it felt sufficiently balmy, even with just an ordinary electric fan to cool us. The kulambo (mosquito net) kept the bugs away.

The service wasn't always perfect (for example, upon arriving in Puerto Galera, we couldn't get in touch with the staff, to arrange a boat transfer from Muelle). However, the staff were generally willing to make up for any glitches we experience; overall, they were friendly and accommodating.

There were some minor cleanliness issues with the bathroom: dirt in the sink, used soap left over from the previous guests.

The complementary breakfast was filling, if a bit unremarkable.

But really, these are just petty quibbles. The relaxed vibe and glorious bay views make up for it.

Just one word of caution: it takes several (costly) trips to get from here to White Beach, and back. If you're after some heavy-duty partying in that area, especially late at night, you might be better off staying elsewhere.

Room Tip: 3A (Couples Room) is spacious and breezy. Very chill atmosphere.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Bamboo Beach is a very peaceful place in Puerto Galera. Located in Dalaruan, a small village in Puerto Galera and situated close to Puerto Galera pier, diving shops and beautiful beaches, Bamboo Beach Resort is second to none as a peaceful place in Puerto Galera or anywhere else in the Philippines.The resort has two family houses and a third house with two separated suites. One house on top of the beautiful, sloped garden offers splendid views of the sea, with Puerto Galera on the left and the Chinese Sea on the right. Both houses and the two suites are equipped with double beds, old Filipino-styled furniture, refrigerators and shower rooms with toilets. All the cottages are made in native style, with sawali walls and nipa roof. The windows has beautiful kapis pattern and is made of narra. The cottages have cool marble flooring and a big veranda made of bamboo. One unique feature about Bamboo Beach is that it is a small, private resort accommodating two families and two couples only. It is away from the city and is an admired alternative to the other busy and crowded beach resorts in Puerto Galera. Consequently, it is fully booked during most of the high season, and advance reservations are recommended. You can feel at home while away from home and you will never get tired of watching flowers in the surrounding area or the great view over Puerto Galera. If you are looking for a peaceful place in Puerto Galera or anywhere in the Philippines, we are sure that this is the best place for you. The tranquillity of nature and the ocean fresh air brings absolutely different ambience compared to other resorts in Puerto Galera and the whole island of Mindoro. "The Peaceful Place in Paradise" is only here, and will always be here. ... more   less
