Great diving

Posted Feb 26, 2017
Stayed here Feb/17. The second time I've been here and will be back. Quiet and laid back resort with basic rooms. The prices are unbeateable for the room view of Puerto Galera bay. Dive team is second to none, a real pleasure to dive with. Exiting the water is a breeze with them. Equipement is in good condition. Giant clams a hi-light to see and all kinds of micro species. Will detour whenever I am in the Philippines to stay here in the future

False advertising

Posted Dec 12, 2016
The advertising is false, there is no pool, no WiFi, one staff member that never leaves the closet office and no blankets. Never stay here. The place should not receive a star rating above 2.

Hello Ryan. We are a budget hotel so we cannot pay someone just to carry your bags. That is 5 star service & 5 star pricing. We NEVER advertise that we have a pool at that location. The pool is at our Beach Resort. We state in all advertising that there is Wifi in the Restaurant/Bar. Not in the rooms. If it is too cold....turn down the AC. This is not frozen northern Canada ! Next time mate, read the information provided about the resort BEFORE you book Thanks Sean

Fantastico!

Even though we initially booked through the Dive resort, this review is for the Beach resort. Since construction was taking place at the Dive resort, the staff asked if we would like to move to the Beach resort instead; therefore we did the following day. Staying here would have been fine too, but we were looking for a bit of quiet if we were going to be at the hotel. Once we got to the other location, the grounds and staff were great, and there's an amazing beachfront to the property as well. The rooms were clean, and the food was great as well. All in all they offered a great space/environment,and the price was right. I would definitely stay here again. Kudos to Badladz and all of the wonderful staff!

Most important is the diving. Well organised dive shop on site. Good equipment well maintained. Instructor Gavin patient an thorough. Dive Masters Bhon and Christian responsive to conditions and my preferences. High level of skill, professionalism and personality. Very individual service. Huge variety of great dives. Well managed and reliable . The resort is dated but perfectly adequate. Aircon good fan useful. Priced appropriately. Wifi effective only in restaurant.

Good but not too good. I better took Badladz beach resort.

Yes, the Beach resort is better if you want beach & pool. Our Dive resort is more of an Adventure location. Hope to see you again soon Cheers Sean

Basic but clean.

Posted Mar 20, 2016 on Hotels
Had a few issues that were resolved by the hotel and although we changed rooms three times, the hotel was very accommodating. The area does not have a lot of shops or variety of restaurants like Sabang and White Beach. But they also don't have the party atmosphere either. Very relaxing area although there is no beach. WiFi cannot be accessed in your room. And the A/C operates only when using your room key. Overall, it is adequate for very basic accommodations. If your are looking for a 4 or 5 star resort,this hotel will not meet those requirements.

A very honest review, Thank You. Value for Your Money is how we are often described. Not a 5 Star resort BUT not 5 Star prices either. :-) Please remember, many 5 Star resorts charge extra for WiFi in your room and they also have AC that only works with your room key when you are in the room. Also - Our LOCATION is AWESOME ! Cheers Sean

Issues but satisfactorily resolved.

Posted Mar 19, 2016 on Hotels
Had to move 3 times d/t a sewer odor in the room and a previous reservation of our room that they were not aware of at the time. In each case, the hotel accommodated us to our satisfaction. Also, great location for diving with Badladz.
