“Peaceful hotel and great place for diving”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Really enjoyed my stay in Badladz Beach Resort. It offer clean small rooms (with AC) in reasonable price. It was very quiet there, but TV program and other activities can be heard from other room though. Personnel very friendly and helpful.
I attended Open Water Scuba Diving course organised by Badladz. Everything went conveniently and professionally. Gavin is excellent scuba diving instructor! Not only technically skilled but also has great attitude in safety and environment. We saw a large number of sea animals and most memorable was big turtle!
For diving this is the place!

Impeccable service from the hotel staff and the crew at the diving shop. The rooms are simple but comfortable. The Mexican restaurant is more than adequate and serves generous portions for a very fair price. It's the ideal place for divers on budget.

We stayed at the Beach resort and found it to be a great place to stay. It was quiet, but right on the beach. The staff was very accommodating and took care of everything we asked for. The owners were outstanding people as well. Gavin and Gavin at the Dive shop made my dives and my Brother-in-Law first scuba experience very memorable.

This was not my first trip to Puerto Galera, but was certainly my best. I had not made plans before arriving there, did not know about this location and was not able to reserve a room, but the secret is out and I will not make that mistake again. The diving with Badladz was excellent, as well as the value. The staff made sure that we had a great time, were very professional and knowledgeable. I am a seasoned diver and the sites that we visited were great! The Discover Scuba Diving program that they provide was the highlight of the trip for my girlfriends son, they took their time with him and it was a wonderful experience for him, this was especially challenging for him as he speaks little English. I will be returning here for my next visit and The staff made us all feel very comfortable and right at home. This is a "must stop" if you are planning a trip to Puerto Galera! Erik R.

I had a great time doing my PADI open water certification with Badladz. Gavin the dive instructor was very attentive and focused on preparing me to be a quality diver. This involved focusing very much on my interactions with what was underwater and having no negative impact. The one on one attention was absolutely awesome too. The whole place runs smoothly and it was a real pleasure to dive with them.
