I.... love.... the .... Philippines

Badladz is a perfect example of why. Great food, hospitality, comfort, affordability. Oh.. and pretty girls everywhere you look.

Philippines is notorious for power outages, but Badladz did not miss a lick.

I tried out the Badladz Beach Resort for my last few days in Puerto Galera. As far as service its obvious the management has gone to great lengths to carry on with the great friendly ambiance they have achieved with the smaller Badladz Dive resort. The rooms seem just slightly higher priced, but then you have a pool a front garden area and a beach here. Its great for families as there are activities for all ages and it keeps you out of seedier Sabang. Again as in Badladz Dive resort the only complaint is the lack of in room Wifi. For a hotel as large as this facility wide wifi should be available!

Hello Mike
Yes wifi is an issue and if Smart or Globe or SOMEBODY could provide us with the appropriate bandwidth then we would happily provide it in the rooms.
The fact that we are on a secluded beach, removed from the "seedier Sabang", gives us the "great family ambience" but penalizes us with weak signal strength from the major Internet Providers.
We currently have 2 separate systems to supply Wifi in the common areas and are constantly searching for alternatives to upgrade our Internet because ....We live there too !
Thanks for your honest review :-)
Cheers
Sean

My first stay at Badladz Beach Resort but definitely not my last. I stand at Badladz from the recommendation of a friend very nice simple place rooms are nice very clean and airconditioner works amazing.
The owner Sean is a great guy always a nice guy for conversation he has lived in Puerto Galera for I think 17 years so if you are interested in anything just ask him he is sure to help.

I treated myself to a weekend there away from Manila what a great trip and an amazing place to stay. I have told all my friends about it. If you are looking to get away I highly recommend staying at BADLADZ you will not regret it.

Great place great service beautiful views right on the ocean I even thought to myself I could retire here. Everyone has their favorite places they like to go to and this is mine can't say enough love love love this place.

WOW, Super Awesome review :-)
So very Happy that you loved our peaceful little Beach hideaway ! You are right, i've been here for over 18 years now and Puerto Galera is the reason.
The Philippines is a beautiful place and BADLADZ is one of the best locations.

We really hope that you can come back & visit us again
Cheers

We emailed the manager beforehand and opted for the beach resort for some peace and quiet away from the crowds on the bigger beaches and port.

When we arrived, there was loud on-site construction work. We emailed the owner and manager about it. The owner, Sean, assured us that it was only for the afternoon and the manager apologised.

For the next two mornings it persisted. Getting woken up before 7am by hammering isn’t my idea of a good wake up call.

The manager apologised for not letting us know in advance and knocked a bit off the diving. A nice gesture.

We got a glimpse of peace and quiet the morning before we left. It was great but a little too late.

The staff were very friendly and mostly helpful. It was easy to get to and from town by tricycle. The food in the restaurant was average for the cash. The pool was nice - it’s worth noting that the dive school seems to use it for training too although not during our stay.

The room itself was decent enough. The downstairs standard rooms are a bit dark (no window) and smelt damp. Lighter ooms upstairs apparently weren’t available due to the building work. The WiFi was slow - apparently it used to be faster but the good router was taken for use in the office!

Yes,we are very sorry about the construction work when you arrived. We were just finishing up some renovations BUT i assure you there was NO HAMMERING before 7am EVER as our maintenance workers do not even start work till 9am. Might have been the fishermen on the ocean banging their oars on the sides of their boats to scare the fish into the nets. Sound really travels across the water.
The wifi was unavailable as SMART is upgrading the system to make it better and we all must suffer with this. We DID say you could use the Office Wifi which can be accessed in the bar.
Sorry that your overall stay was not pleasant BUT we did give you a DISCOUNT !
Somehow we thought this would compensate.
Thank You
Sean

In our almost 1week vacation, we stayed at Badladz Beach resort one of the best resorts in Puerto Galera. This resort is so relaxing, the room was so clean. The staff were so nice and well trained. The food is so delicious. This resort is perfect for a couple, family, friends and even a company trip. The location is perfect, you will see the beautiful scenery of sunset. The Inspection Company highly recommended the Badladz Beach Resorts for a truly great stay.
