I came to Puerto Galera for my PADI advanced open water class and I chose Badladz. It is not on the busiest side of the island but the location is convenient enough for you to have access to all kinds of public or private transportation (including the sea plane, which I had to take on the very last day of...

We took a chance to travel to Mindoro after the Typhoon and saw that this was rated 4.5 stars on TA. We got off the banka boat and the resort is a short walk from the pier. I asked to see the room before we committed to staying for 2 nights. I put a lot of trust in TA reviewers...

I took a gamble in this place, but unfortunatly for me, it did not fulfil my needs. The experience started off unpleasant. I walked up, and was greeted with disinterest by the person working the restaurant, who also was in charge of the hotel Check In. When I got to the room, things went downhill from there.

I was staying in BADLADZ for few days and did a diving course during my stay. Overall atmosphere was great, starting from nice place, reasonably priced rooms and good food and the list goes further and further to helpful staff and really professional instructor. Will definitely visit the resort again during my next trip to Philippines.

We didn't stay at the resort but decided to use them for our diving. Having not dived for a few years, we were a little tentative but I have to say the whole dive operation was incredibly well run and made things very simple. All equipment was set up and changed, so it was simply a matter of checking things...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The best of the Puerto Galera resorts! Our hotel is small, quiet and very clean. Located on the Yacht Harbour in Puerto Galera Bay at the "quiet" end of the main tourist pier, Muelle Pier. Our location is very convenient for travelers. You will be only 6 km from both Sabang and White Beach making it the best of both worlds. This makes it a nice alternative to the crowds at both these locations yet close enough to enjoy these spots, far enough away for rest and relaxation. You simply MUST try our famous International restaurant. We are highly rated here on TripAdvisor and serve the best Mexican food on the island. If you have come to learn how to dive, whether you are a complete beginner and just started learning to dive, or you’re an experienced diver looking to expand your qualifications, you’ve come to the right place. Our in-house dive shop offers you everything you need to discover the beautiful underwater world of Puerto Galera – no matter what your skill level is. We’ll take you to the best diving spots in Puerto Galera, which is one of the most beautiful bays in the world. You will find that staying here at BADLADZ Dive Resort is great value for your money and offers many conveniences whether you're here to dive or to enjoy the surrounding activities. ... more   less
