    Top notch hotel at Sabang- best room at Galera”

    I've stayed at over 40 hotels at Puerto Galera White Beach and Sabang and this by far is the best. Let's go over the highlights Food- Good price point at 250 to 400 with wide selection and generous servings. More satisfying than eating at Max or Barrio Fiesta. Staff customizes the meals as they were informed I do ketogenic diet Facilities- Theres a clean pool with enough sun shade, a good game room and superior diving equipment. The equipment looks brand new Location- Just a meander away from the busy restaurant strips and the cool Bikini Bar Rooms- By far the largest I've seen with bottomless water Being a hotel owner myself at Boracay (Aloha Boracay Hotel) and Batangas (Rinoza Resorts), I'm not easily impressed. But this place hit all the jackpots

    More good than bad”

    My wife and I travel alot, this was our first time to this part of the Philippines. We got the room with the best view of the sunrise and full ocean, the room wasnt renovated like the rest of the Hotel but we were told that up front. although the pictures of the view combined with the new room were a little misleading. The food and service was excellent. Communication of staff was the only challenge we had during the whole trip (my wife speaks the local language) once on our excursion to do activities arranged through the hotel, we got stranded at the dock with no pick up, so we had to walk back while tired from the day, second was while we were checking out, it would have been nice for them to tell us we could purchase our ferry tickets back to Manila through them so we wouldnt find the boat sold out on the long journey home and have to wait another 1.5 hours for the next one in a crowded tiny terminal. But more good then bad, we would come back for sure..

The staffs are very accomodating we were allowed to checkin earlier in consideration to a baby boy, though we are at the 4th floor of the hotel we enjoyed the room and the venue, the kids couldnt stop from running and playing, the room was spacious and neat, they also provided laundry services free of charge that quite nice for a hotel to offer. We enjoyed the pool and stayed most of the time, considering its open 24 hrs. I also arranged a special dinner to celebrate my husbands birthday and food and arrangement was superb.

    Rooms, Staff, Service

    This is my second trip. I have to say I love the staff who goes out of their way to make me feel welcome. I booked it online on agoda and they texted the number from my previous stay to make sure I would be picked up on time. I can't believe they even saved my old number. That shows they care about their guest. Really impressive! Its a beautiful hotel just a short walk away from the main beach. Its great to be a little away. Just 5 minutes walk actually. Great rooms and GREAT service with a smile. Only negative things are that the rooms are upstairs and I mean WAY upstairs! Its quite a walk and Im in OK shape. I had to walk about 5 flights of stairs to get to my room on the top. I guess its good to walk off your food, if your in good shape then get that room, lol. However the view from my balcony is INCREDIBLE and makes it well worth the hike up. I was disappointed with the food as they were out of stock of many of the items I ordered, and finally after I agreed on something, it was not too good. However right next door there is an awesome restaurant "Out of the Blue Resort" which is rated #1 on Trip Advisor and the food there is incredible. Besides the food I would say the hotel is AWESOME and I would always stay there! I would also highly recommend it to anyone wanting to go to Sabang!

    Lalaguna Villas Surprisingly Awesome”

    Location, nice pool, great staff

    The location was great, far enough away from the questionable activities at Sabang pier but close enough to walk there for food/drinks. I was told the pool is the biggest in Sabang, it's open 24 hours and nicely done. It's not an Olympic size pool but it is nice. Room was single room but had a nice flatscreen (blocked by a large reclining chair when viewed from the bed) but overall nice. The only drawback to the hotel is the charges for everything! The food is good but overpriced at the hotel and if you utilize anything in the room their is a surcharge. The only exception was in an-room water dispenser that was absolutely used daily!

    Staff, cleanliness, pool

    I stayed there for 2 nights and it is probably one of the nicest one in Sabang. There are only 26 rooms but they are quite big and comfortable. The room is clean and has its own router so the wi-fi is excellent. The only downside was that I was on the 7th floor but there is no elevator. So you have to be in shape to climb up 7 flights every time you go to your room. The pool area is very very nice and the staff is absolutely the best. Always smiling and ready to help if you have any concerns. Mt room safe was defective so they replaced it immediately. I will definately stay there the next time in Sabang.

    Staff, pool, service

    This Hot was exactly as the reviews described, a well run and reasonably priced hotel with a great pool and excellent staff. However...!! Sabang Beach is a seedy rubbish dump with run down area of resorts and restaurants lining the shabby beach front. White beach is better than Sabang, if you don't mind dog poo on the beach and the food there was the worst we ever had. If you go to Puerto Galera stay at Aninuin beach which was fabulous. Sabang was by far the worst place we have travelled to, we found one great restaurant at Blue Ribbon Resort but that would be the one highlight. We were really disappointed with sabang. .

    Stayed 2 nights in May 2019

    Not for people looking forward to fun and relaxing beach activities ”

    Pros +Good service +Room is big enough +Amenities (Room has kitchen and refrigerator, basic gym, pool, resto bar which serves decent brewed coffee) Cons - Place is for divers - NO beach to swim and relax (wish this was indicated in their description coz the next beach is 8-10 mins walk to the town and another 30 mins travel by tricycle at 300 pesos,one way) - The area (Sabang), in general, is dirty. Definitely, not maintained by the government -way going to the town (by land) is filthy -narrow pathways, no lighting, garbage everywhere -Towels didn't smell fresh. We requested for new towels since the ones they first provided didn't smell clean . The new towels were just slightly better.
