Diving in Sabang for two weeks and two Typhoons
We stay at the Mermaid Resort for little under two weeks and had a great time. I would highly recommend staying here. We will be back! Great staff, great food, and great location. Yes, sometimes it gets noisy because of motorcycle traffic but still great place. We stay in one of the Penthouses with nice terrace/jacuisy and while it did rain allot a couple of days we enjoyed the friendly and helpful staff. We also enjoyed their dive shop down on beach front - they have a brand new twin outboard dive boat which was great. Our divemater was Jeff and he did a great job of taking us to different dive sites each day. We had a chance to go to Verde Island for two trips and would recommend this because not only is the diving special - best site out of all of the sites we visited but also Jeff puts on a great cook-out on the beach over there. We also hired a moped for the time we stay in Sabang (from Puerto Galleria).
It was worth going to the waterfalls (take left out of Puerto Galleria) - they have nice swimming pools below the falls. We also went right out of Puerto Galleria and went passed white beach to end of pavement and then short dirt road to Lucas Resort for lunch. Lucas is a great place for pizza and acoustic guitar music - not to mention cocktails / beer.
