“A good place for Relaxation”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

El Canonero Diving & Beach Resort........a beautiful place to go.We found out that it was a perfect place for us to relax .The scenery,the beach and the pool which kids like most (Blockbuster). Mr. Giorgio-the owner and the staff are very accommodating especially the cook who prepared delicious foods and pizzas for us. .We get more from what we expected. Our three days are not enough so we definitely be back there.A longer one....

Room Tip: all rooms are good coz as a big family(28) we had occupied almost all rooms

If you're looking for a relaxing vacation then this is the place to be... I just went there with my family & we are definitely thinking about coming back! Giorgio (the owner) & his staff are very accommodating. They are friendly & always ready to take care of our needs & requests... The food (especially the pizza) is great! Food prices are reasonable, too. The beach out front is absolutely to die for! It's a bit out of the way (at Talipanan, just a little farther than White Beach), but that's what makes it so great, because it's not crowded & the view is just stunning! The place also has pool, a bar, & plenty of options for snorkeling, diving, sightseeing, shopping... so there is never a dull moment ;-)

I definitely loved every minute of our trip... & so did my whole family! Thanks Sir Giorgio & all El Canonero staff for making our stay so enjoyable & memorable! Till we meet again!

Well worth the wait! Couldn't have asked for a better staff, a better owner, a better location.. and the Food, not at all that pricey for a tourist destination (not to mention DELICIOUS).. Thumbs up for the pool coz its a big hit for the kids (after all salty sea water kinda hurts the baby eyes), But the beach is beyond awesome.. Its private (hence you get to bask more relaxingly) unlike the crowded noisy beaches.. The room is what one should expect for a beachfront resort and its so spacious.. looking forward to going back there.. Giorgio (the owner) and his staff are so accommodating.. It wasn't at all expensive and the service was not cheap.. Mind you, we were a party of 24 and we were given a warm and homey stay.. I wouldn't have it any other way.. :)

Room Tip: All of them are spacious, no harm in asking for more towels or blankets if you are a large group..

I wonder how mismanaged this resort is. We regret purchasing the promo with MetroDeal. It’s like a decade before they get back to you on reservation….

sucks! if you dont ask for towels they will not offer you. we have complementary breakfast but it is just a bread with butter and jelly. 2 breakfast and same food. the room is so ughhh! the staff are not smiling, the place is dangerous, no lights at all. we went there because of the promo in the internet by indochina strings. we learned so much because of this experience. but we enjoyed our stay in puerto galera because we spent most of our time in White Beach. we just used el cañonero as our sleeping place.

Paid a hell of money to have a small room with lot of noise, terrible A/C machine, no space, no door between room and toilets ! No room cleaning at all. No service at all.
The owner only takes care of the people diving. Other customers are just ignored. 1 hour to get food (price of food is reasonable).
Never use the travel agency Asiaventures, they did not solve the problem at all.

if you are the kind of person that anything goes maybe this place might pass for you but if you are looking for peaceful and relaxing vacation maybe you should think thrice.you won't get a cleaned room everyday if you don't ask for it likewise no clean towel if you don't ask. you'll have to wait for eternity before someone takes your order.hospitality doesn't exist in this place,there's a beach front room but you have to take the smell, the noise coming from it's very near restaurant neighbor.while your eating the vendors sell their ware,totally unbeilevable.in other words this place sucks
