I stayed at Badladz Adventure Resort for a budget dive holiday - away from all the bars and "entertainment" at Sabang. I was not disappointed. Badladz presents excellent value for money, has a great dive centre and is in a very beautiful and relaxing location.
The dive centre is very well equipped and staffed - if you don't have your own kit, their rental kit is in tip top condition. Gavin, the resident instructor, is great and a font of all knowledge. The dive guides were excellent - I saw loads of stuff as they knew exactly where to find it. Some of the sites however were quite far, although the boat rides were fine.
Resort rooms are simple, clean and are well appointed, with lovely views across Puerto Galera bay. Staff where lovely and I felt very relaxed and at home. There were also a few other small bars a short walk away, plus Puerto Galera Yacht Club is nearby for when you want a change in surroundings.
A great little find and particularly good for either larger dive groups/ block bookings, couples or the single solo diver/traveller.
