If your in a trip for beach bum mode this place may not be right for you. Very far from everything, night life in puerto galera is located in white beach or sabang. To go to white beach you need to take a boat to muelle which cost 250 per trip and doubles after 6 pm. From muelle port, ride a 150 php trike to white beach. If your into late night beach party, staying in white beach would be best. Though swimming in area would be difficult since waves may be very strong.

Back to the resort, rooms were dimly lit and linens were quite soiled. Towels provided were also torn. No restaurants or food stalls around the area. Swimming isn't also recommended in the area because of the rough sea floor. It a very secluded place since the only way going to the resort is by boat. Some good points about the resort is if your into a nice quiet place this place may be good for you. Also, free breakfast may be availed anytime during the day but its just a piece of ham, fried egg and 3 pcs halved white bread which didn't satisfy us after a tiring swim in the sand bar and snorkeling along the coral reserves. Overall, I do not recommend this place if your in puerto galera for a good swim or a great night life.

simple, no frills, away from all the noise. ideal for travellers seeking peach and 'me or us time' on an island...the sea bed is rough..not ideal for swiiming..you can consider going to other nearby beaches though....the location is right on the beach, if you bargain well...a nice cheap cheerful deal is definately on the way..like i got, even on a long weekend

Very basic, cheap accommodation. Definitely not 5 star but great location if you like quiet, staff lovely, food good and reasonable. Rooms cheap and clean, some with shared bathroom. Very close to really nice beachfront Italian restaurant as well.

just returned from puerto galera yesterday, my fiance and i stayed in a secluded simple resort at dalaruan, puerto galera 15mins walked from Coco Beach. The resort is a beachfront but not ideal for swimming but better stay in bamboo rather in white beach (the beach is no good and it's too crowded). The room in Bamboo cost P1,000 only good for 2 and family room P2,000 good for 5. the only thing i didnt like in the resort they dont have a restaurant but the good thing is you can go to coco beach and pay P200 for the pool pass, the P200 is already consumable of food and drinks and you can stay on the resort to swim and use the pools. the room is not air conditioned but it's really airy and the room is really relaxing. kuya ben and his wife is very accomodating, you can even ask them to cook for your meals (of course you have to pay them). on our 1st day we went for snorkeling in long beach and pay him 800 (we were only two, for 5 persons it's only 1000) in long beach we rented a boat for 150 for snorkeling and 50 for the shoes cause you cant walked there with you barefoot. i think it's practical to stay in bamboo and then just go to coco beach for your lunch or dinner and swim. trust me the other beach are really no good, cocobeach they have good one and aninuan but the rooms are quite expensive. so there! but if you want to go to white beach and see the crowd, you can go to muelle and from there hire a tricycle for 150 that will bring you to white beach.( they dont even have white beach was disappointed, the beach have a no good aquamarine sand). always bring money when you leave the resort.

how to get there?
go to muelle puerto galera and kuya ben will fetch you there(P300) for the roundtrip transfer. Good for 2-4 i think.

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
