“Great place. Peace and quiet.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013

To start with, I was very reluctant to go to Puerto Galera because of the stories I have heard from friends. I braved the trip and true enough you will be hoarded by hotel tour guides who will ask you if you already have a room from the pier till you land on the shore. I went my own way and scouted for the perfect place to have a drink but away from all the noise, good food and very friendly staff. I found a neat cottage tucked away on the far side of the beach. Quiet. Beautiful sound of the waves and the perfect breeze where you can relax and just read a book. A quiet drink at the bar, Beach Frog, with the friendly British owner, Allan. I met Kuya Ben and Ate Norma who accommodated me like part of their family and spoilt me by guiding me with what to do around the island. If I am to daydream, I will hear the waves and wish that I was back there with my beer and my book. A place that will always be part of my summers.

Room Tip: a choice between a nipa hut or a room. both are great options since you are at the quiet part of the...

We stayed in a beach hut. It's very basic and old, but mostly clean, had an amazing view of the water, and the location is great. Away from all the noise of central white beach, but still within sight and a 2 minute walk away. The staff were nice and helpful. The food was really good for the price. Also, the frog bar located in front of the hotel is a great place to hang out. Ask for a classic margarita!

A group of us just returned from a 3 night stay. The rooms were clean but very basic (bed, fan, and old school TV). Our room had AC but you have to ask the front desk for a "key" in order to turn it on. Overall the room was comfortable. Also, only some rooms have hot water. We did not know this and had a room without. Breakfast was included with our reservation and it was decent, the pancakes are worth a try and the fruit smoothies.

The resort is located at the far end of the beach, which is great because its much quieter, especially at night. All the action is a five minute walk away, so I found the location ideal.

The staff is super friendly and helpful. They will book anything you want, such as ferry back to Batangus or activities like renting Kayaks.

Also note, the hotel did not provide soap or shampoo, so be sure to pack your own. I did not and had to buy at the little shop next door, which wasn't a big deal, it was just unexpected.

This is one of the few resorts that has actual beach front view. The place has basic amenities but in pueto galera its just what you need. The place is clean and well kept, the owners are friendly to their guests. The real bonus is that its walking distance to the noisy part of white beach but when you need to rest you hardly hear the party noise. Its quiet and the beach part is shaded early from the sun so as early as 3:30pm , one can swim without worrying about sunburn. They offer shuttle service with their van to and from the pier so let them know what time you will be arriving so they can pick you up. There is good wifi at the resto and the beach huts but not in the rooms. No hot shower and if it rains, the small creek you have to cross may get your feet wet. So far its the only two negatives of the place. Will be back there whenever I want a vacay in white beach , puetro galera.

Room Tip: Get the nipa hut.

We stayed here for three nights over CNY.

The room we had was very simple, but I am guessing it is the same as all the places along White Beach. There were two double size beds in the room, a small tv and a washroom and that was it, but when you are at such a beautiful place as White beach, you don't need to spend time in the room other than for sleeping.

The bathroom was basic and only had cold water and there was a small terrace where clothes could be dried. We booked through Agoda and breakfast was included, which was generally good, but I got some food poisoning from the longanisa on one occasion as it hadn't been fully cooked through.

The staff are great and very friendly.

The biggest draw though, is of course the beach. It is a stunning stretch of white sand, far superior to that of nearby Sabang and the vibe is far more relaxed, without the mass of prostitution that there is Sabang. It was beautiful; to walk along the beach to the end of White Beach or scramble around some rocks for another kilometre of glorious views and an almost deserted expanse of sand.

We arrived as a couple to White Beach, Puerto Galera. A nice man took us to the quiter side of the beach where we were greeted by Nester, the resort owner. We got a sweet room on the beach and enjoyed it very much! You can ask for A/c or without for reasonable prices! All in all, very satisfied couple!
Thank you:
Gal and Adi
