The rooms are like suites with a small kitchenette. Decent A/C. The hotel is right on the beach 15 minute walk from Sabang center. Smoking is allowed. wi-fi is very bad. Then, they charge 4% on credit cards.

3 1/2 star place at a 5 star location. I think the staff are quite fantastic. Food is good as far as breakfast. We ate out for dinner at other places every night. In general I would rate Puerto Galera as a great "Guy Trip" as it is what it is.

Be aware that there is no beach l It is not a place for swimming unkess you want to swim in gasoline left by the numerous boat making a ballet dance from very early to very late ! Plastic rubbish on the beach. Also, the only way to arrive to the hotel is to walk 10 to 15 minutes carrying your luggage. Not recommended with kids ! Otherwise nice staff, breakfast is good, room is ok, but not 3 stars sorry.

From experience I know that there are much cheaper and much better accommodations around this area. Portofino has old rooms with ugly and uncomfortable linens, the bathrooms are on a very low standard or even under usual standards. The music was far too loud in the evening and when you sit outside, flies will attack you. The front view of the hotel looks much nicer than its rooms. Breakfast was included but they have a terrible offer and if you want an orange juice or pineapple juice instead of your hot tea or coffee, they will charge you extra. There is not much choice for vegetarians on the breakfast entree menue and if you would like to have an oatmeal, you have to pay extra. Service is not good enough. You might be very disappointed (that is a general issue in the Philippines), if you have been to other countries around and expect the same. They just don't know enough about satisfying a client yet.
