Oceana Beach Resort
Ranked #47 of 53 Hotels in Puerto Galera
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We had been bringing clients to Oceana Beach Resort for the last 3 years. Our groups totaled to more than 400 people.

The over-all feedback is mostly positive.

1) Food is always generous and flavorful. Unforgettable is the barbecue they serve during dinner. Breakfasts are also filling and have varieties.

2) Service is personalized. We love the staff. They always do their best to accommodate all our requests. Special thanks to Sir Michael (the owner) who would often mingle with the clients at night and serve his special drinks. Ms Jenny (the Resort Manager) is always friendly and would do everything to provide our needs.

3) The resort itself is far away from the noise of White Beach. Made us feel like we are on our own private hideaway. It is also refreshing to see a garden beside the beach. The facilities needed sprucing up but we can see that the management is trying its best to update the look.

The resort is also family-oriented, meaning, the management does not condone unruly behavior from guests and "questionable" dealings.

If you are looking for a spruced-up, glitzy resort, Oceana is not for you. But if you are looking for a simple, rustic hideaway, then this is the perfect resort for you.

Can't wait to go back to Oceana this year.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with a big family, choose the villa infront of the beach. Its wide and spaciou...

Our first clue was when the tricycle driver told us it is not a resort and asked us more than thrice if we were sure we wanted to go to it. It has not been painted in 20 years. It's a total dump. After we arrived and saw in the lobby the dusty books with mildew as "the library," we were them shown hideous concrete bunker-type "villas." My aircon was broken and they offered to move my "room" a.k.a. looks more like a prison cell. I walked over to the "beach" which is nasty with broken glass and rocks. We left within ten minutes to find a new place and we got lucky as it was late on a Sunday night. When we went back to get our luggage, the staff didn't even ask us why we were leaving. I actually felt sorry for them. We didn't even try to get back our pre-payment for 4 nights as it was clear the whole place is a scam. I have never encountered this in 30 years of travel around the world. I can only guess the other reviews here are plants as part of the fraud by the scammers who own this place. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

Our family spent 3 days 2 nights on this resort in April 2013. This place is for family bonding, away from the crowds of the White Beach and the touristy places. If the reason to be in PG is for family bonding, I will recommend this place. The owner(Michael) of the place, Jenny and all the employee were all helpful in giving us assistance in spending our days in PG.
We had one complimentary dinner from the owner who is very friendly.
3 days and 2 nights is not enough if you really want to see more of Puerto Galera.
Beach side is not sandy but more pebbles than sand, and we didn't mind. Kayaking is free.

Room Tip: The second floor room where we stayed was the largest of all rooms and highly recommended for a fami...

We spent two days at oceana and it was very nice. We needed a place to get away from work for a couple of days and Oceana Beach Resort provided that. It is a little farther from town but you get the quiet secluded place to relax from the hustle and bustle of the town and white beach. The caretaker was nice and was always very helpful. Breakfast was provided and it was an ok filipino breakfast. The water was turned off sometimes so if you need to take a shower or need the water you just need to tell them to turn it on. The beach is nice and they have a kayak that you can take on the water and explore for free. Beach has little rocks so if you are looking for white sandy beach, this is not it. We took a trip to white beach and had a good time there one of the evenings. They have fire shows, food etc. Anyway, it was a good trip. Puerto Galera is not the best beach town in the world, i have seen better in Hawaii, Ghana and South Africa but it is a nice beach to enjoy

I have been to Oceana Beach Resort countless of times and every time I go there, the place gives me a serene and peaceful feeling. Being in the opposite of White Beach, the resort offers privacy and safety to tourists.

I especially commend the warmth of the owner and his staff. I also love it that they have many recreational facilities such as kayak, freshwater pool, billiards, pool, basketball courts, etc. to keep me and my company entertained.

Breakfasts here are fantastic. The slow-cooked / grilled porkloin is also delicious, very tender.

Of course, Puerto Galera is known for its underwater attractions. The coral garden in Muelle Bay is only 15-minutes away from Oceana.

Oceana Beach Resort is located in Dulangan Beach, far from Sabang and White Beach. The beach is clean and private.

Will definitely come back.

Room Tip: For families travelling together, the pension house is the nicest. It has a veranda fronting the bea...
