Amazing staff. Beautiful apartments. Great Location!”

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Squares Beachfront. The rooms were very spacious and had everything we needed. The beach here is calm and peaceful. The location is perfect as it's away from the hustle and bustle, but it is close enough to grab a bite to eat or visit the more happening areas. The staff was so hospitable and treated us like family. Will definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Puerto Galera.

Quiet, Clean Beachfront Hotel”

Clean, Large rooms, Lots of spaces outside to relax, Cold A/C

We had a wonderful stay at the Squares Cafe and Apartments. There is no actual cafe on the property but there is a great Mexican Restaurant right next door at the Badladz Resort that we ate breakfast lunch and dinner at. This hotel is very clean and the rooms are large and have cold A/C. It's a short tricylce ride from the port and should only cost 10 pesos. We had a quiet relaxing weekend swimming in the ocean, lounging on the lounge chairs and hammocks. They have a BBQ if you are inclined to cook for your self. PERFECT weekend away from work. Could find a better deal anywhere! Thanks for the great stay!

A nice place in a small fishing village”

This was our 4th time in Puerto Galera and 1st time to stay this area to celebrate our Chinese New Year vacation. The small fishing village was very quiet. And the beach and sea water were more appropriate for seeing than swiming. The room was spacious, nice and clean, and had a simple kitchen. The public market was only 1.2KM away and easy to buy something for cooking.

Kuya Rey is very accommodating and helpful, as well as the other staff. The group suite is a perfect size for a family. Guests can cook. A shuttle to and from the Muelle Port can be arranged.

Hidden Gem”

I was looking for a weekend getaway for me and my husband's family of 13. We booked last minute so there wasn't many choices left. The remaining White Beach resorts were expensive. Safe to say, Squares did not disappoint! 1. They let us check-in early because we arrived earlier than expected. 2. Their kitchenettes were so useful. 3. Their staff is soo friendly, they would offer recommendations. Squares is located at Small Tabinay. Muelle Port is the drop-off point from Batangas Pier ferry. Take the Father & Sons ferry so they will offer a free shuttle to Squares. The owner is one of the most humblest people you've met. My husband and I plan to return for a week or so. For questions, call Rose Warren +63 995 380 9680 directly as the phone number on Google is listed incorrectly.

Great find”

I wish I could say don't come here, so I could keep it to myself.!! Butvthat would be sobunfair to the owners.! This hotel is a wonderful find and great value. There were 4 of us and had 2 rooms. They are simple, clean apartments in a beautifully designed building. The grounds are nicely maintained and lead right into the beach. The kitchen area has simple facilities, including a gas ring cooker, fridge, kettle and simple intensity. I had booked 2 standard rooms, which were on the ground floor. I thinknall rooms look out onto the sea.. the staff are excellent and the owners are very friendly and helpful. For food shopping, the supermarket is a 200 peso tricycle ride for 4. If you want nightlife, the town of Sabang is 300 peso for 4. I would definitely come back for longer. It is quite a long journey to reach the hotel from Manila. The whole journey was 650 peso per person

Relaxing Moments”

Everything it had to offer

A truely wonderful place to stay, big rooms, clean and open with plenty of space, embrassed by tropical views draped in warm sun. It's located on the egde of "Small Tabinay Squares" which I found out was a well known Basket ball court with locals across Mindoro. To find it just tell your trike driver you want to go to Small Tabinay Squares Basketball court and they will take you right there. It has a beautiful clean private beach where the local kids catch little fish, and if you don't feel like cooking is right next door to a really nice and affordable restaurant with an awesome and welcoming staff. that runs The Squares is a total sweetheart. Her right hand man is just as you'd imagine some-one called to be, their cleaning staff are absolute treasures. Highly recommend staying here. *** Thanks Agoda , travelling with you makes travel a pleasure ! ***

If peace is what you want, then book here!”

This hotel is far from White Beach which is what we actually prefer. We are not really into partying and drinking. We just wanted to get away in the crowded place of Manila and this place gave us the serenity we are looking for. During our stay there's just few foreigner guests. The hotel is quiet. All you'll hear is the sound of the waves outside and our room is unbelievably huge! It's really an apartment. 1 bedroom, with sala, kitchen and washing machine! The only downside that I can say is the food is too expensive. However, you can cook as there's a market nearby. Will I go back? I definitely will!

Great quiet place to chill by sea”

Rooms overlooking sea are spacious, a little dark but nice. Good to realise this is a B&B (not a cafe). Big menu choice next door however, so sleeping here and eating at badladz resort a good option. It's a short tricycle ride to Puerto Galera where there's a few places to eat and small supermarket. The 2 ATMs unreliable. The website tip to go to Minolo Shipping Lines (terminal 3) at the chaotic Batangas pier very helpful.

It's not bad but could be much better”

The Hotel is outside of Puerto Galera and lays in a quiet space, the beach is messy as the locals don't care of any plastics and other stuff floating around. The hotel rooms are ok, but age tells, the staff is a bit sloppy, everything needs to be followed up and pointed to, the laundry is very old and needs replacing. For the price you pay you expect more. During our 16 days stay, 3 days the rooms were not made as staff were on leave on no fill in organised, that's not good enough. Just be a little more business wise and you can succeed...

Beautiful and great atmosphere!”

Squares was a very pretty and romantic get away. I was a solo traveler but I noticed that this place would be ideal for a romantic getaway for love birds. Out of the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas but still a very pretty location. I rented a scooter for my stay so I was able to go to White Beach and the water falls at my leisure. Would definitely stay again if the opportunity presents itself.

The place is very peaceful and cozy. If you’re avoiding crowds, this is the place to be. The staff are really friendly and accommodating. Functional kitchen really helps you save up on your meals. The place is near the wet market. The view is spectacular, great for taking photos. Beach is child friendly except that it’s rocky along the shores but the sand further into the waters is really fine and not grainy. You cannot build your sand castles though and I will suggest still wearing aquashoes so if by any chance that you step on a fish buried on the soft sand when you go swimming it wont creep you out but if you are cool with it, feeling the cloud-soft sand on your toes is amazing too. Kayak use is free but best to do it early morning when the water is shallower and very calm. They also offer some other activities but we were not able to try it given the short time we were there. All in all it is a great place if you want to relax and chill.

2nd time here this vacation”

1. location: ocean front view, room was 30 yards from the water. 2. nearby mountains and shape of cove are natural barriers to force if any storm. 3. kindness of staff...

I stayed here my first few days and then went off to see a friend in Angeles City. While there, all I could think about was my little niche in paradise. So we made a u-turn and went back for the balance of our vacation. It's very slow and peaceful on this side if the island...just the way I like it. The hotel next door has the best restaurant I've been to since I've come to the Phils. I believe it's called the International Restaurant. It's right next door and has the same spectacular views...ocean front tables and spectacular service. You can't go wrong here. If you ask, they will also bring you a motorbike to rent at a cheap price.

The amenities and the place design brings serenity. It is relaxing just by staying at the resort. It is 20 to 30 mins away from the white beach. The resort offers tours with their partner agent. The pool is clean. The place is well maintained unlike others that the photos is deceiving. What to you see in their photos is exactly what you get when you get there. Super happy and satisfied.
