Great location, nice staff”
Summer Connection is situated at the far side of White Beach in Puerto Galera, which is good especially if you want to be away from the bustling night life. The hotel is right at the beach front so it's better to walk along the beach once you arrive from the boat terminal to access the hotel. The easy access to the beach and relative quiet of the hotel compared to others made Summer Connection a win for me. The staff here were nice and check in was quick. The standard room was okay, it had the expected amenities like air-conditioning and cable TV. The bed was good enough for two, the pillows were soft but the blanket provided was a bit thin. The water pressure in the shower was weak but at least the hot shower was working. There's a pool in front of the room but it wasn't working at the time I was there. Summer Connection offers free breakfast from 7-10am, where you have the option to choose a Filipino breakfast, continental breakfast, or omelette set.
quiet haven in busy White Beach”
We had a great stay. Kuya Nestor and the other staff were very friendly and made us feel well-taken cared for. The hotel is right at the beach and it's very refreshing to gaze at the sea first thing in the morning. It's towards the end of White Beach (so it's quiet and gave us a sense of having our own private beach) yet it's just a short walk to the center of White Beach where the souvenir shops and most of the restaurants are. Our room was clean and comfortable with good working airconditioner and hot shower.We will definitely be choosing Summer Connection again if we have the chance to go back to Puerto Galera.
The quieter place in White Beach, Puerto Galera. ”
I have seen a review where it says that the place still gets noisy and livestocks gets loud in the morning, that wasn't the case in my stay. We were comfortable in our room (Room 101) and the room was nice and clean. Staff was helpful, Altho the breakfast choice is quite limited and drinks that it includes with the breakfast is limited as well. The location was right at the edge of White beach, if you enter Puerto Galera (white beach) the opposite end of it is where you will find the hotel, which is away from the loud music and crowd if you wanted to go rest up early on the night yet close enough to everything else that its just a few minutes walk to any activities you want to do. If you get your room at a price that is less than 2k php that's great, if its around 4k php that's the normal rate from what I have heard. I got it lower than 2k php so the value for me is incredible specially at this peak season and I only booked it 4days before the said check in date.
A relaxed and homey atmosphere ”
We didn't want to leave yet! We have been coming back to Puerto Galera's White Beach several times already yet it is only now that we discovered Summer Connection. And how glad and satisfied we are! It's proximity to the night life is far enough to give you a restful sleep. Yet if you want to check out the entertainment, you can always walk and have fun. Thumbs up for the friendly and accomodating staff who even offered to help us with our journey back home to Manila amidst typhoon Egay's temper. Staying at Summer Connection is the best thing at White Beach!
Great place if you are looking for a quiet and peaceful resort to relax. Their location is far from the busy and party area of Puerto Galera. The room is clean and spacious, we stayed in their Nipa Hut room btw. Their staff are always smiling and very helpful, specially Mang Nestor. There is a small bar right beside Summer Connection who serves delicious food and drinks so you dont need to walk at night just to look for one. We will definitely go back. Such a wonderful place to relax!
Summer Connection is located at the very end of a beautiful beach. It is not new or super fancy but it is clean and quite and exactly what you should be looking for if you want a quite location. Even though it is at the end of White Beach, it is well within walking distance of the more active fun spots, restaurants and tourist hangouts. The Staff at Summer Connection is absolutely excellent, it is like staying with a fun family. They have a wide variety of room types and from what we saw, everything is kept clean and hospitable. Can't wait to get back!!!
It's 10/10 to us! Two thumbs up!!!”
Summer Connection is the perfect place to stay in White Beach. The room is soooo clean and their facility is so spacious where you can chill around with your partner/friends/family.. It is also at the beach side that makes it much perfect. And NO, it is NOT noisy in here at night. It is quiet and calmy. Staffs are friendly and nice. Our weekend getaway became perfect with this perfect accommodation. This must be highly recommended! Thank you Summer Connection. We surely go back here for another great vacation. -Angie&Bryan.
great freindly staff in a very relaxed atmosphere”
i would say this is the perfect resort on white beach. All water sports and outside trips are available here. There are b-b-q stations with large seated nipa huts which overlook the beach where you can relax without beach vendors bothering you. Kids can play here safely always in sight and there are lots of super freindly staff around to keep an eye on things. It is only 1 minute away from all the restaurants bars and souvenir shops along the centre of white beach, yet still quiet enough at night for young children to sleep. All in all we had a great time when we stayed here and would be happy to recommend it to others, not just families, but also groups, couples etc. Keep up the great work Summer Connection
Had a great stay”
I have stayed at White Beach several times over the past few years and our 4 nights at Summer Connection was the best trip by far. The location at the end of the beach is quiet and peaceful yet close to resturants and stores. The room was wonderful...and next time we will book the Nipa Hut. Our 3 year old had a great time playing in the sand right in front of the room. We rented a Jetski and also a motorcycle for an afternoon and rode to Tamaraw falls...a beautiful ride. Overall a great stay...Thank you Summer Connection and staff!
If you want peace and quiet in Puerto Galera but still want to be a few feet away from all the nighttime chaos, Summer Connection is a good option. Far enough from the videoke screams, but near enough the night bar scene if you so chose to partake. All in all satisfied, especially the nipa a/c huts for a little more privacy.
A memorable holiday”
We stayed in White Beach 30 yrs ago, it was memorable then and still memorable now. Summer Connection was the best choice of accommodation in Puerto Gallera we had. Quite & secluded but still walking distance to the busy White Beach main hub. Our room was right infront of the beach and had restful sleeps on our own regal beds. The staffs Devine, Che, Nestor and Manang the cook, were so helpful and lovable. Always there to help and were just like a family to us. The 'Beach Frog' bar and cafe was our watering hole, can't forget their mango shakes, rum & cokes and the yummy authentic 'fish & chips'. Norma was a delight to talk with, just like a sister to me.
Close to the beach at the calm part of White Beach”
I spent in Summer Connections some day during the holy week and I was warned before that it will be very crowdy with party all-night-long. In fact, it was like that but the Summer Connection Hotel is situated at the end of the beach, where it is getting far more calm and so I was not bothered by party-music during night time. The location is great and straight at the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was night, with running hot water, a working AC and TV. There was electricity 24/24. For me the Summer Connection is one of the better hotels at the White Beach due to the location.
A lovely resort and location on the white beach. Infinity pool at the resort was excellent. Room was clean. The staff at this resort was so caring to their customers. I recommend this resort to all travellers if go Puerto Galera and white beach. Norwegian traveller together with Filipinos.
Great place to stay in Puerto Galera!”
We stayed in one of the huts. It was spacious. The bed was comfy, the a/c working fine. They also provided simple amenities such as a hygiene kit (toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo and soap) .. best part about it is the view and the location. It's in the quiet area of white beach away from all the music and the parties. Kuya Nelson was super helpful and kind to us, as well ad the other staff. Plus! The Beach Frog right by summer connection serves awesome food (esp. The Fish and Chips!) .. will definitely stay here again and recommend. 😊
Quaint and cosy”
We had a very pleasant stay at Summer Connection. Our room was beautiful and we took the Nipa Hut. It was romantic, spacious and comfortable. We also had a rocking chair on our balcony. Summer Connection is located at the end of White Beach, away from all the noise, music and crowd. Perfect for a good night sleep. Would highly recommend this place.
Great Location ”
Hello to All, I stayed here with my GF for three nights. Nothing bad to report really. We had a great Ocean View room, was large and everything worked. Nestor the manager is supurb. Good cafe /bar on Beach, although is run by seperate people so no room tab. The best part of this place is its location at the quiet end of White Beach, only 4 minute walk along beach to bars and cafe's. To be honest is slighty overpriced but everything in Puerto Galera is anyway !! Would defineately stay here again if I went back to White Beach.
Nice and quiet & next to a bar with Western food”
This is our third time here. Great value for the hotel location and rooms. Hotel is away from all the annoying sellers and fire dancing, still easy to go to if that is your thing. Rooms are clean and very charming. Breakfast was okay. There is bar/restaurant next to it that serves good food (good serving as well)and happy hour deals on beer & cocktails! Little gems of Puerto Galera!
Great location along White Beach, a peaceful spot but still just a few steps from the restaurants and stores. It was just what we wanted. Staff is very helpful and accommodating. Food in the restaurant is great and at a reasonable price. The room is clean and complete but it could definitely use some upgrades. All in all, it's a great resort and will definitely consider staying here again if ever i'll be in Puerto Galera again.
We arrived at summer connection and was warmly greeted by Nestor the resort manager. As it was quiet he suggested we upgrade to deluxe, for a small fee. This gave us a view of the sea, a refrigerator and right next to the crystal clear swimming pool. Nestor chatted two or three times a day. He was more than happy to arrange tours and transport for me and my partner. As to the room itself, it had nice water pressure always, very clear and fresh. The air con quiet and clear. In summary, I really think summer connection combined with a talented experienced manager, ( Nestor ) is an unbeatable combination. I can recommend it without reservation. Les Rafton.
Stayed for 3 nights for Malasimbo festival ”
Best place to stay if you're attending the Malasimbo festival since White beach is the closest to the event location (more jeepneys going to White beach when you're on the way home and only takes a short 15 min ride). Aside from that, it has a nicer and quiet-er beach front perfect for just chilling during the day. I also love that they have free breakfast, a clean swimming pool, beach towels you can borrow, simple but clean rooms, a clean BATHROOM with a working toilet and hot shower (very important!!!). We would've wanted to get a room with a balcony facing the ocean or pool (same rate as the standard room we got) but it wasn't really that big of a deal since our room was still pretty close to those areas. Very good value for money for me! Will stay here again next year!
