“THE WORSE HOTEL EVER!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2011

We booked 2 nights here during holy week and to our surprise, their rates jumped from PHP1500 to PHP5000 per night and that does not include breakfast, i have to raise my voice and speak with the supervisor to get the free breakfast. We had no choice because its fully booked everywhere. I DONT recommend to stay here.

Although we're from Aklan, where Boracay is, Puerto Galera has been my and my boyfriend's travel sanctuary for quite some time. Basically because of its proximity to the Metro and the beach and nightlife fun in White Beach. And for the nth times that we went there, we usually stayed at Madeleine's Place, which was quite okay.

On our most recent trip there however, MP was fully booked as it was summer time. After looking for another place to stay but not liking what we saw, we decided to drop by at Dreamwave. Lucky for us, there was available room and the rate was even lower than what MP gives us during peak times. Cool huh...

We spent 4 idyllic nights at the hotel and we loved every minute of it because it was quite comfortable. And we vowed that the next we come over, Dreamwave will be the place to stay. Hmmm...and it will be this January....no longer boyfriend-girlfriend...but as husband-wife....c",)

  • Liked — The price: very reasonable!
  • Disliked — I can't remember anything I hated.....

I've stayed at this hotel two summers in a row.

Our first experience at the hotel was a good one although we had some issues with henna stains on the bed sheets and were asked to pay for this even though we argued that the stains were there already. We accepted defeat as we should have checked and notified them prior maybe...

The hotel is in a great location... right on the beach front and our room was facing the shore with a small balcony area outside to admire the view.

It's a little further away (but still walking distance) from the bars which means that if you don't appreciate the music at night that you don't really hear it.

I booked direct with the hotel when I stayed in April of this year and the team remembered us! What a nice welcome back and we were allocated the same room as last year which was brill!!!

The restaurant serves good food, the staff are friendly, the rooms are clean, if you need internet access there are 2 PC's (connection is a bit slow though)... will definately be staying here everytime I go to Puerto!

I'm a frequent traveler and by far this has been the worst hotel from amenities to services. My family booked online as we were promised of bigger discounts;however, upon arrival, we realized that walk-ins get 10% discount whereas we don't. As compromise, the supervisor offered us "upgraded" rooms which also turned out to be a hoax since the new rooms he offered were one foot bigger than the original room, without any other amenities. The rooms looked new and comfortable BUT : the comfort room has no exhaust so basically the smell of the C.R. floated across the room, the bed has bed bugs we all went home with rashes all over our bodies, there were no complimentary toiletries, you even have to request for the mere tissue!!! The hotel is overpriced and I suggest you choose better hotels nearby for a much cheaper price than this. We regret having stayed at this hotel, don't be fooled with their "wonderful" advertisements on their website!!
