Utopia Resort & Spa
Ranked #23 of 54 Hotels in Puerto Galera
Reviewed 11 August 2017

This was my third stay at Utopia. We decided to try the Sampaguita Room. First, room is misleading because it really is a detached building. There is a living area with sofa, table and TV on the first floor. The second floor is the bedroom and showerbath area, and also has a TV. Each room has its own air conditioning so each room can be adjusted as desired. In between the two floors is a private balcony.

The bedroom and the living area have a lot of window space. In the day we opened the drapes and had plenty of natural light. At night we closed the drapes for privacy. The view from the living area is exceptional.

All rooms have adequate lighting. The shower has good pressure and plenty of hot water. We had excellent WiFi in our room and at the restaurant.

The menu at the restaurant has been enhanced with plenty of food choices. Cocktails from the bar all had excellent taste. If you don't want to eat at the hotel, you can use hotel provided free transportation to visit White Beach or many of the local eateries.

The hotel has laundry service and our clothes came back the next day and were fresh and cleaned.

The staff at the hotel go out of their way to help and be friendly. I would be amazed to find better service or a more friendly staff.

Room Tip: Sampaguita Room and Orchid A / Orchid B are my favorites

We stayed here in April 2017. Lovely hotel away from the small town and harbour its set up the the hills. Its surrounded by coconut trees, you really are with nature. Courtesy mini bus into town, a couple of nice little bars at the harbour, from here you can get a tricycle and go explore! Luxury hotel with first class facilities. Very clean. Fantastic views out to sea, nice gardens, nice pool. Short walk down steps to a small beach/water front. Food in the restaurant is first class and reasonably priced. Try the Philippine curry, delicious! Every aspect of our stay here was positive, a lovely place, with lovely staff. Would certainly stay here again!

We stayed here for two nights last December and surprisingly found a quiet place - we previously didn't know exist in such fun yet crowded beach such as Puerto Galera. Our room called the Sampaguita Suite dishes an 80s vibe that retains a classy touch highlighted by its veranda that afforded us a scenic view of the sea.

The food came in big servings with rich colors and taste. Our stay was made even better by the hospitality of the staff and Kelvin the owner himself who engages us in short conversations by telling us interesting story about the property.

I recommend this place for anyone wishing to spend time away from the city and be surrounded by nature and beautiful scenery. This property is perched atop a small hill so going to the beach requires a 10-15 minute walk, but it would be worth the effort as the whole property really encloses you away and usher you into a quiet hideaway - perfect for a weekend escape.

We are currently in this resort.
Pros: Beautiful views; nice clean room; always available driver (we are only guess on property); pool on site.
Cons: I would push to give a 4 stars for hotel only. Food is disappointing? For a price as a nice European restaurant food tasted well just first couple days we ate and now it is dry most of meals (unfortunately hotel is away from the town, not like we could go outside and eat anywhere also), plus we expected this place to have a great restaurant and for whatever reason they do not listen your requests. Example of tonight's dinner: after requesting before each order, that I prefer my food to be not spicy, still delivered uneatable, thing come either very spicy or dry meals. I am left without dinner, do not want to order anything else from this place, but having no microwave in room to buy/ heat other food. Never less it is take from 45 to 70 minutes waiting time. Literally our experience. Lately we preordering for time ahead.
Or woman who did massage did not seems professional nor listen where I would like more of her attention. We planned to have massage each day, but first experience was disappointing. Again, not sure what they claim 5 stars? Shampoos/shower gel mounted on wall or one set of complimentary instant coffe and tea? Maybe it is good for this country, but not good for a first impression. Owner, British man, maybe had a good intenssion but does not have a 5 stars level staff. I would not go there again, nor recommend to families with children
