“Great Gem in Puerto Galera”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

When we arrived we were presently surprised to find a beautiful resort. It was even cooler when we found out we were the only 4 people on the property for the night. We had the whole hotel to ourselves.

The food was great we had breakfast late but since we were the only people at the resort they still served us breakfast well after the end of breakfast :)

Our rooms were very nice we had a upgraded suite with connecting rooms. The room itself was two floors with the bedroom upstairs.

Outside the room was our own balcony seating area. We spent much of the night enjoying the sounds of nature while sitting on the balcony.

Overall the place was excellent. The staff was very accommodating and the food was good. We will definitely be returning to Utopia. With only 7 rooms it will never feel over crowded.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade the cost isnt much once your in their lobby.

Everything about this place is quality, its peaceful & private,has wonderful views & all the amenities you'd expect from a 5 star resort. Combine this with the super friendly service makes Utopia a must stay if you'd like to treat yourself to a bit of excellent value luxury....
When i checked out i hadn't realised i'd left my digital camera by the swimming pool. The staff couldnt have been more helpful, they found it & delivered it to me in person fortunately before i'd left the island..
Another bonus at Utopia is theres a free shuttle bus service down to Sabang beach or Muelle Pier in Puerto Galera town, its a short ride around 10mins. This is a real bonus especially if you want to try out the local nightlife..

Our trip to Puerto Galera was organised at the last minute. We made a booking at Utopia Resort because the photos on their website looked nice and the price was right. As far as we understand, the place had recently re-opened after a change of ownership and renovations. Overall we were pleasantly surprised and had a relaxing 4 days. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool was a much needed escape after two weeks of travelling. The staff were friendly and helpful although still learning the hotel business. The free shuttle into town also meant we weren't isolated at the resort. We'd happily return and recommend the place to friends.
