The excellent service starts at Manila airport where my family was met and transferred via aircon minibus and banka to the resort. Pretty much the entire staff turned out to greet us and settle us in.
The hotel is like a hidden oasis next to the sea front with an excellent and well maintained pool area. The gardener is constantly looking after the grounds and the whole place is meticulously clean and well cared for.
The rooms are very pleasant and comfortable with a minibar, hot water and TV (not that you need it). Again well serviced and no complaints.
I was on a 3 meal a day plan and cannot fault the choice and quality of the offerings. My wife is glutin free and the staff were extremely helpful in ensuring she was well catered for.
The dive operation (I am a PADI instructor) was as professional as I have seen throughout my travels. The facilities for cameras, equipment and training cannot be faulted. The dive guides ensured your equipment was in the right place at the right time and were excellent in their execution of the dives. I don't usually do "critter" diving but even I got enthused by the variety of things at Puerto Galera.
Overall an excellent resort that is well run and made by the professionalism and friendly/helpful nature of the staff. I would strongly recommend this place!
