    Great experience, highly recommended if you do not mind the steps”

    We were 3 people from Hong Kong travelling to Puerto Galera mainly to experience scuba diving. We are quite satisfied regarding the facilities, including the pool, restaurant, massage room, room condition, etc. Although you need to pay for tax and service fee for the food you order from the restaurant, the price is very affordable, similar to outside restaurants but higher quality. I would mostly recommend the massage in Manarra Resort, which was an amazing experience and really a nice journey of the soul. The environment and atmosphere was great, they would turn down the lights and play restful music. The staff here are great, much appreciate them as they helped us to get to Batangas when the ships were canceled on July 1 and we were surprised. In a word, we were quite satisfied and it was a pleasant experience here in Manarra, thank you!

    Very relaxing; good view!”

    My husband and I stayed at this resort from June 2-4, 2016. Starting off with communicating with the resort for our transfers in and out was handled well by their staff, Arlyn. Their room was great, food was good, their staff we're very friendly and accommodating to our need, The only problem we had was it was not really handicapped friendly or for senior citizens but we managed. And the only problem was rowdy foreign guests whose room was directly above our rooms making so much noise during the wee hours of the morning. The view was excellent. Overall, we had the most lovely and relaxing stay here at Manarra Sea View Resort even if we just stayed in our room. I would not hesitate recommending this resort to friends.

    The steps to Manarra is so challenging!”

    The view of the ocean, the cleanliness of the rooms and friendliness of the staff are superb!

    I now know how Kung Fu Panda must've felt when he conquered his old enemy, the Stairs. Had the same experience with Manarra. If you have a sedentary lifestyle and have not gotten yourself used to exercising everyday, then brace yourself for Manarra. Make sure to stretch tour legs well before climbing up to the reception. The experience would have been better if at the reception, refreshments are immediately offered to arriving guests. From the port of Sabang, the foot / entrance to Manarra is about 8 minutes walk. Then you'd have to pass through a maze of other hotels in the area while slowly climbing up the path. By the time you get a glimpse of the reception, you are already exhausted. Anyways, once you conquer the stairs, you'd never want to go down as the view is spectacular. Food served at the restaurant is great compared to the ones along the beach. It's pretty much quiet at the hotel so if you are really looking for some destressing and relaxation, Manarra is the hotel for you. Oh, and by the way, there's a spa at the hotel so you can have those tired muscles soothen out by the masseuse.

    One of the Best Hotels in Sabang Beach, Puerto Galera”

    My fiance and I stayed overnight in Manarra and I must say that the place is great. What you see in the photos are what you will get and more. We live in a condo so my fiance and I really wanted to stay in a hotel that have facilities that are better if not at least comparable to our condo's. I must say that Manarra did not disappoint with its clean and excellent facilities, helpful and very accommodating staff, delicious food, etc. I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who would like to stay in Sabang Beach for some snorkeling and Scuba diving. Keep up the great work Manarra! ;)

    The room and the view. Breakfast with a views with excellent service in their restaurant

    I loved the hotel and the view. With a view comes steeps ! But manageable and worth it Negatives ,felt disappointed by way of their response to email prior to arrival . Tried three different ways to contact them asking for clarity of getting to hotel on arrival by boat . I wanted to strike up a conversation amd also enquire about my concerns for travelling and arriving iat Easter weekend but I never got that far . Just an automated reply with my name from the Manarra and that they would contact me within 24 hours hours . Neve got a reply at all.. A local friend in Manila had to contact them on my behalf. They sent someone to meet us on arrival at Sabang which was great . Also just elect to have your room done on a daily basis . I stayed 3 nights and was asked as I left my room after the second night if I wanted my room made up , I just said no it's ok just change the towels and some fresh mugs . Came back that evening and not done, although someone had been in the room . The same sort of thing happened the day before too when asking reception on leaving the hotel after fmy first night stay. But once you phone down from your room and re request it cones with amazing speed!

    We booked a deluxe room in July for 4 night at Manarra Sea View Resort.The staffs is very friendly. The room was modern, large with a good aircon. They did not replace empty shampoo. Many steps to reach the room.But good for exercise. Trips should not be booked at the hotel as it is more expensive. Unfortunately they charge us for stained bathtowel. The last 25 years I never had to pay for stained towel, not in Asia, Europe, USA or somewhere else. Looks like the Management is trying to get every peso they can get from the guest. So we left the resort with mixed emotion.

    Great views”

    If you are prepared for all the steep steps, it's well worth the climb to the beautiful, spacious, clean rooms at Manarra. The views are gorgeous overlooking Sabang back across the water to Batangas and Isle Verde. Be prepared though with plenty of cash. We weren't warned in advance that we needed to put down a P6000 cash guarantee (even although we had already paid via credit card through Agoda) or surrender our passports (which we didn't have on us) for the duration of our stay. Unfortunately a couple of bad experiences with guests have led the otherwise excellent resort to treat the rest of the guests as potentially untrustworthy too. I don't know, maybe that's just normal in the hotel industry, but I didn't really appreciate it. We weren't able to put food charges on our room bill either but had to pay it individually each time which was a nuisance. The very nice massage/spa had to be paid by cash not credit card, etc. Speaking of the massage/spa room though - highly recommend a massage or spa treatment. The masseurs were very good, and if you have a manicure or pedicure you get to sit in lovely comfy seat looking out through a plate glass window over the incredible ocean view. Magical! Yes, we'll be returning, but we'll hopefully be prepared with more cash this time (which we prefer NOT to travel with normally).

    Loved our stay, super friendly staff. Our accommodations were airy, clean and spacious. We had a few small issues that were handled immediately. One minor detail was even corrected without us even bringing it to the staffs attention. The owner made sure to confirm all was well and i notified him it was superb, this level of attention and caring for a guests' stay is well appreciated. As others have mentioned in previous reviews the stairs (82 for our accommodations) are a bit of a workout , especially after diving or a night out drinking. The views from the rooms are beautiful and sortof make the inprompt to workout worth it. The room service is timely and efficient. The food is varied and tasty, the poolside bar is well stocked. The pool is very clean and inviting. The staff even made scooter reservations for us with a very reasonable priced local business. Thank you to the staff, management and owner for a marvelous stay!

    One of the best hotels in Sabang beach closer to the pier and road”

    I think Manarra is one of the best quality hotels if you want a room closer to the dive shops on the beach, restaurants and the road. The only drawback here is that thi hotel is located on the hill which means climb quite steep stairs in a heat of local summer which can be tiring even for the very young twenty somethings not even talking about the older generations. The rooms located on the top are penthouses, one level lower are suites. So if you want climb less you can actually choose superior which don't have a private balcony (there is a shared balcony where people pass) but in fact inside are very similar to the penthouse so there is really no need to pay more and climb higher in this particular case. Hotel has a good restaurant and they are happy to provide a room service. There is also a small swimming pool on the ground level which is Ok to chill out in the evening.
