Sea Jewel beach resort is located a short 3 min walk from white beach Puerto Galero. If you want to wake up and see the beach and hear the ocean this is not the place you check in to. The view from your window is not great either.
But let's focus on what is nice about this place shall we?
Mort important, this hotel has 24 hour security and it is clean. The staff was always helpful, and breakfast (not included) was just as good as any other place i tried on the beach. I stayed in two rooms here, both were clean with silent aircon and clean sheets/towels. The big difference was the balcony in room 301 where i dried my wet clothes and beach towels after a day of swimming and snorkeling. So ask for a room wit balcony, the price is the same.
Another nice detail is that they have a backup electric generator. This is helpful, i was in PG two weeks and the electric system went down twice. It took a few seconds, the generator kicked in and all was back to normal with light and working Aircon.
When it was time to go home they booked me on the boat and made sure the little shuttle stopped and picked me up outside. Free of charge, with a friendly smile.
So nothing negative..? OK - the water pressure could have been better, but trust me, you can't do much better for 1500 pesos. I took my time when i arrived and checked out several places.
