Nice, clean and economical”
This is a new small hotel right on the beach. The rooms are very clean, basic and quiet. No phones or TV (at least in my room). Good shower with instant hot water. Staff is excellent. The manager of the hotel, Brian, when advised, with less that 24 hrs notice, that I needed to check out one day early refunded that day without any problem. One of the best dive shops in Sabang Beach (Sea Riders) is on the main level of the hotel. I had not done any scuba diving for 18 years and Mark who is the dive master, took me out for one on one instruction and dives. I can't thank him enough for being very patient with me cause I was quite scared at first and giving me one of the best diving experiences I've ever had. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Modern comfortable rooms and helpful staff ”
Clean, modern, comfortable rooms. Super helpful staff - helped arrange tours, laundry and directions. The only suggestion is to add bedside lights. If arriving by tricycle you might need a porter to move luggage 200m or so along a rough beach path. Nothing but praise for this place and it’s staff.

New, clean with great view”
Simple but clean room, very comfy bed and soft bedsheets. Water in shower is salty. We had a room with beautiful sea and Sabang view. Although, the minus was looking for this place as there’s no sign for this accommodation. We spent like 30min to look for it, and even local people did not know it by name. We tried to call the property but the number wasn’t working. Little hint: It’s a black building with sign: Sea Rider habitat/dive shop.

Dear Marcela, thank you for the near-perfect review and we're very happy that you enjoyed your stay. It's true that we have challenges with the water quality and signage - we feel bad that you had to spend 30 minutes looking for the place and couldn't reach us (we were on vaca too, island had weak to no signal at all). This is something that we are truly working on and will resolve by the end of this month (May 2018). I hope you can come back when able and I'll personally make sure to make it up to you -and show that we have made the necessary changes to make the place better. Safe travels! Bryan

Spacious and Very Clean Rooms at an Affordable Price!”
Everything was perfect for this little gem in Sabang! Property was right infront of the beach, the room was so spacious compared to most of the hotels/hostels/guesthouses in the area plus the price is way affordable and worth every penny! Other Guesthouses in the area can't compete with the cleanliness and facilities this place offered. Additional plus points to the staff who made extra effort to make sure my stay was comfortable. They were so nice and helpful! Thanks Habitat! We will definitely come back!

Roanne, thank you for the review and highlighting what we have been working hard to achieve since we started this project! We'll hold on to your promise of coming back and I'l make sure to be there to provide an even better experience! PS - I wish you would take that Open Water Diver course soon. It's really worth it and so much better than the DSD experience :)

Dear Tiong, Thank you for the review and I want you to know that it really helps small businesses like ours. We hope to see you again soon - we're in the process of building a cafe/sitting area overlooking Sabang Bay - should be done by July - and I know this is something that will be enjoyed by guests.

Dear Jason, To be called a "diving hotel" is spot on as our target market are really scuba divers here in Sabang, Puerto Galera - but of course, everyone are welcome to stay. Thank you for leaving a review - it truly helps a small business like ours. Take care and safe travels!

A must try!”
The location is perfect! just a minute away from the pier. Also has a dive shop on the ground floor! Saves you from a lot of walking honestly. Room price still much lower compared to the other hotels that we've stayed in, not to mention the design and you can tell that the room is well maintained. Shower water was a bit salty but bearable. I've had worse in other hotels in the area. The staff were accommodating. Overall we are very satisfied and we'll definitely come back!

Pros: Staff very friendly & Obliging. Managers went out of their way to help me change my booking without penalties, as we were not divers, which was much appreciated. Cons: nothing to report.

home away from home”
I love waking up to a beach view. The guest house is like a home away from home. The staff are accommodating, helpful and friendly. I forgot my charger and asked to borrow and one of them lent me one for my entire stay. I like the fact that you can prep your own food at the guest house kitchen to avoid expensive dining outside. There are accessible restaurants and eateries nearby. The room I stayed at was comfy and bigger than most hotel rooms in Sabang. I will definitely stay here again when I come back to Sabang for diving.

Basic and simple. Great choice for scuba divers.”
I really think it's a great idea that someone finally thought of making cheap but clean and comfortable rooms for scuba divers in Sabang, Puerto Galera. It really is a guest house and not a hotel so don't expect the same "grand" level of service. It's basic and simple which is just what I need. The shared kitchen is a nice touch. The 3rd floor area with a view of Sabang Bay is fantastic. I'll definitely stay here again and recommend for others if it's simple, basic and affordable they need.

Nice clean place ”
I had a nice stay at this location. The place was nice and clean, easy to check into but a little tricky to find on the strip. My stay was good but I have only one complaint. For some strange reason, the female managing the place had her kids running around and I was awakened at 7 am by the kids who decided to play and make noise at the table right in front of my bedroom window. So what I did was move the table and 2 chairs into the room so I won't be disturbed by the playing kids. I did let the female manager know and she did apologize. Other then that my stay was good and would be more then willing to stay there again.

Zimmer sind noch im Bau. Kein TV. Zuerst funktionierte aircon nicht, zuletzt war kein Wasser im Bad”
Das Personal ist sehr freundlich. Zimmer sollten aber erst vermietet werden, wenn alles fertig und intakt ist.
Reviewed December 09, 2017
Johannes, I can always appreciate honest and constructive feedback -but not the rants of a non-scuba diving guest who stayed in a guest house/town where scuba diving is the main attraction. Exercising due diligence before booking is a great practice. 1. The air-conditioner works perfectly. No cold air came out as the thermostat was set to the lowest point. Adjusting that knob would have fixed the "problem". 2. The rooms were completely done during your visit. There are 3 design finishes on the walls -ceramic tiles, paint and "a faux plaster" finish. I can understand how some would feel that the "faux plaster" finish may look "unfinished" but rest assured that it's clean, dust-free and an accepted trend worldwide. 3. Water was restored within 10 minutes of letting the staff know. Tank switching is now automatically done. 4. No TV - the property information provided here on Agoda states this. This should not be a cause of dissatisfaction if you read the "What They Offer" s

部屋にテレビと冷蔵庫はないけれど、それ以外は値段の割に良かった。シャワーの水温がなかなか上がらないけど、冷たいわけじゃないので、まずまずかな?

Dear Hidemi, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I would agree that it's nice to have a TV and a personal refrigerator in each room, but to balance costs and make sure that Habitat is within the "budget" class, we decided to instead have a shared kitchen and sitting area for all guests. About the shower water heater, I have just personally looked into it and it's working fine. The water gets hot, although not steaming hot. I wish that you informed us of this so we could have helped or clarified this. Thanks again and safe travels Bryan
