We booked this hotel at the last minute and it was more expensive than other accommodations that we had before. However, the service and the rooms were excellent. We tried to catch the last trip to Puerto and the staff at the port in Batangas arranged a lot for us. The front desk staff was always there to assist and they even arranged a shuttle to Muelle port when the last boat on White Beach was full. Pool was nice, very romantic even if it's a bit small. We got a free room upgrade and it was a big room with a wonderful toilet and bath. Breakfast (included in the rate) is buffet but food was not spectacular though. Overall, it was a great stay. (Tip: You can request the restaurant to serve your order by the poolside)

A pleasent resort to stay. 200 meters from the beach where they have a restaurant and bar. Rooms are small but for a short stay there is nothing to complain. Very friendly staff.
Look out for the hotel representative at the port. You have to go through security.

The Marco Vincent Dive Resort is truly a one of a kind resort hotel in the Philippines. Despite all the noise, hustle and bustle of life in a Filipino town when you step into the lobby of the hotel you step into an oasis. The staff are courteous and efficient...smiles everywhere. The hotel is built around a large swimming pool that looks so refreshing you want to jump right in. The hotel restaurant includes a pool side dining area. Western style and Filipino foods are on the menu...all delicious. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel also has a beach side restaurant that is about a five minute walk from the hotel. If diving is in your plans, the Marco Vincent Dive Resort includes a full up PADI dive school. The resort maintains several dive boats.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

My fiance & I stayed here for 3 days when we visited the Philippines and we were very pleased! :) The room was very clean, the pool also looked amazing! It was just right in front of our room & we really enjoyed it especially in the morning whenever we're having our breakfast, the view is just so relaxing! Btw, the breakfast is awesome, i've already been to so many hotels here in Canada and the breakfast at Marco Vincent Resort is my Number 1 in the list! The food in the buffet that is by the pool was cooked perfectly every time! The Longanisa is the BEST! :)
Now the one thing that sets this resort above anything else is the front desk staff! Everyone was so helpful in every need that we had especially the beautiful girl who checked us in named Marriane. The Manager Miss Rizza is very nice and even called about an hour after we checked in to see how we liked our room which was very nice. Then the night before we checked out she gave us another call to see if he could help us arrange any special needs upon checking out!
The service at the resort was superb! Staff ~ very friendly and helpful. This hotel is my new favorite place to stay in Puerto Galera. I'll come back to this hotel and would bring the whole family next time. The guest service here is absolutely amazing and very personalized. If you book a stay here you will not be disappointed!

I can never think of the most appropriate word to describe the experience provided by Marco Vincent Resort to my family. From the hotel room, to food, pool, staff, and amenities, everything was just so awesome! I've never seen such a cozy, peaceful, and attractive place for relaxation and quality time with my husband and baby, and fun times with nieces, and in-laws. From the very first day, the front desk, Marianne, greeted us with a genuine smile then offered complimentary drinks which made us feel very welcome. The manager, Rizza, made sure we have everything we needed to feel comfortable all the time, in and out of the hotel. The food attendants and housekeepers showed patience and kindness in performing their duties. I've felt sincerity and seen consistency in every employee. Everyone just made us feel at ease.

The location is a perfect one for a quiet place to rest. A little walk to get to the beach front would not hurt to witness the beauty of White Beach. Music, drinks, food, and friendly people added up fun to the night life in front of the Marco Vincent Divers and bars. Another thing that really made me feel special was the sunset cruise along the mesmerizing view of the beach then followed by a romantic dinner on an island. Rizza and the whole team made the cruise and dinner perfect! I wish I could also experience diving with the masters and capture the beauty underwater.

We even extended our stay for one more day for us to have more time to bond and feel closer while on a vacation. I would recommend it to my friends and other relatives. Indeed, one of the best gifts, superb getaway, by my husband was made possible at Marco Vincent Hotel and Resort. Thumbs up!

I am diving last 15 years and it was one of the best scuba vacations I ever had.

Hotel. Staff is very well trained and friendly. If any problems, resolved after you came back from diving. Amenities in a reasonably good shape for a tropical island. Seems like a best places in the area. Many thanks to Rizza (hotel manager) who build an excellent tram.
Food. Eat in the hotel. Different kind of food and personal is very responsive to your personal needs. They can arrange food in hotel or on the beach. Did try a several local places, does not worse it.

Diving. Dive master Warren and crew was an excellent. Every day something new, seems like he knows every corral in the area. Diving is very safe and service is very professional. Unfortunately after typhoon in November we did not have enough people to go to Verde Island but Puerto Galera area is interesting by itself. Hotel does not have direct shore access from the diving shop. No problems. Staff will move all your equipment to the beach or with a short drive they will launch a boat from nearby Marina. During entire week of diving we did not carry anything heavy, all was handled by the diving crew.

Dive shop is next to hotel. It has everything necessary with the exception of the photo room. I had to carry my camera and maintain it in the hotel room.

Underwater photography. Puerto Galera is very reach and diverse marine environment. Check out my pictures made on this trip: https://plus.google.com/photos/110061054982304076855/albums/5954816983850312369
Place is excellent for macro. Visibility was not always good enough for wide angle
House reef. Actually it is not a reef but sandy bottom. Good choice for a night dive. Very interesting. A lot of small creatures – check my pictures(link above) , 12 of those was made during this night dive.
Surrounding area. Cannot tell too much. We were happy diving, diving, diving.
