Absolutely love this resort!”

the 3 best things were the design and quality of the room and bedsheets, towels, renovated & modern bathroom, modern aircon, large flatscreen tv great for watching movies, and the restaurant

My stay was fantastic. I already was so happy when I saw the great big lounging sofa on the clean, and colorful (tastefully done)veranda just outside my room. I loved my room with the care for high quality linens and towels. I was happy to see a small refridgerator filled with various food and drink at good prices. The safety deposit box worked excellently and made me feel at ease as I went boating, snorkeling and exploring around Puerto Galera. Malasimbo Festival brought me to Puerto Galera and my friends booked at another resort. My companion for Papa Freds couldnt make it but I enjoyed relaxing to movies when I stayed in at Papa Fred's. After returning from the festival late one night, I encountered the guard and this made me feel safe. I also chose this resort because it has a great restaurant. It serves the European food I enjoy. The location is central, convenient, and on the waters edge. I could easily access cheaper eats elsewhere if I wanted to do that. I rebooked another stay soon after returning to Manila. Thank you to the great staff Weng, Rosie, and Derrick who helped me arrange safe snorkeling and boating excursions at an affordable price. My Puerto Galera experience while staying at Papa Fred's was excellent. Thank you Papa Fred's !

Perfect for couple getaway!”

Location: Sabang is not as loud as the White Beach which has a lot of happenings at night. But it's better to swim at the White Beach. It has water activities such as banana boat, flying fish, jetski. Sabang on the other hand is more serene and relaxing. Scuba Diving is what the area boasts! For us, it's the perfect location for staycation specially that we have a wonderful suite at Papa Freds. *If you know how to ride a motorcycle, just rent one so you can go to the White Beach and at other areas of Puerto Galera. You can save so much with this! Room: Cleanliness could have been improved specially at the veranda area. But nevertheless, the room is big spacious and spacious! It actually exceeded our expectation. The interior is awesome! When we arrived, the Jacuzzi wasn't working so we have to report it. After an hour it was already fixed. Then here comes darkness, Jacuzzi under the stars with a glass of wine... What more can I ask for? Customer Service The manager at the check in counter was really nice and accommodating. It's such an easy check in process. She also helped us rent a motorcycle. Kuya, who fixed the Jacuzzi was also very nice and friendly. There's just this housekeeper who's like always irritated when she answers a question. Happened twice! I'm like, chill girl I'm just asking! Haha. And I can hear her talk as if the guest was not listening. I just don't want negativity so I let it pass. All in all we're so happy with our stay. And we'll for sure go back to runaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. My IG post have attracted a lot of my friends to visit the place and I'll for sure recommend it!

6 amazing days at Papa Freds”

We enjoyed so much our stay at Papa Freds in Sabang beach. We had a nice room with balcony. The room was bigger than we expected. We also enjoyed moments both in daytime and at night in the pool area. There are very comfortable sunbeds up there, and free towels. The restaurant was so nice too, especially on the top floor with an amazing view. We expected this to be a noisy place, but it was just so quiet and calm there. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely like to go back to Papa Freds again some day.

More than expected 👍”

What a great surprise to see Papa Fred's . I was expecting just another beach side hotel but this was different. Upgrade to an apartment type room I found everything to be great . The location is about a 2 min walk from Sabang pier and on what I would say is the quieter side of the town allowing for quit peaceful nights . The room is cleaned everyday by really friendly staff who go out of their way to accommodate your needs . I would recommend this establishment to any of my friends and would certainly staff if visiting Sabang again. Well done ✅

Very nice hotel. Just lousy city. Unless you're into scuba and need a girl.”

Stayed in the VIP suite. It's brand new. Very nice. Private pool. Huge flat screen tv. Jacuzzi that wasn't working. Beautiful view from balcony with loungers and HUGE papasan chair. Restaurant is pricey, but that's Sabang. I will admit it was one of the best dinners I've ever had in the provinces. Fresh crab, great filet mignon ( Papas is a steakhouse too), nice bottle of Argentine Malbec. A word about Sabang, it's primarily for scuba diving base and finding a girlie at night. The beach is not swimable, yuk. I booked there to be close to the ferry pier to return to Batangas, but weather forced the cancellation of the wooden bangkas for 3 days so had to shuttle 1.5 hours to Calapan pier for larger ferry. The weather was bad so there's not much else to do there. Sabang great for scuba base, looking for a girlie, not much else.

We arrived only days after a typhoon had struck the Island. Significant damage had been done to the islands power and communications equipment. Papa Fred's had enabled backup generators and were one of the few resorts to have power available early. Despite the typhoons efforts we had a fabulous new year and enjoyed the stay at Papa Fred's and dining in the restaraunt ..... Will stay here again

We asked for additional rags and the staffs provided some. The staffs are very helpful assisting us on everything we need and giving us most of the affordable deal.
