              2nd vacation in Puerto Galera at Tamaraw Beach”

              My husband and I, really enjoyed our stay at Tamaraw Beach. This is the second time we stayed here. The beach was clean and so quiet and peaceful. It's not secluded but it's nice that you don't have to deal with a lot of people on the beach. The food was good and very reasonable. Our package included breakfast and that was great! They have a beautiful swimming pool too. The staff was really nice and very accommodating. They remembered us from our first visit and that was 4 years ago. The first time we stayed in Tamaraw was in 2012 and my husband really enjoyed it. He kept asking me to take him back to PG so he could see the owner Mrs. Singson (I hope I said it right) whose been super nice to us when we first visited Tamaraw. Unfortunately, Mrs.Singson was in Manila when we were there. I highly recommend Tamaraw Beach if you are going to Puerto Galera. We are looking forward to our next stay at Tamaraw when we go back to the the Philippines. Nhorie & Tommy Seaford, NY

              Tamaraw Beach Resort was a great place to visit whilst in Puerto Galera. The pool was very clean and picturesque with the clean beach and the staff were always happy to assist. We had a large group and were able to uses BBQ facilities to make our won food when needed. The restaurant food is also very nice. You are also close to White Beach where the entertainment is but can get back to the quiet of Tamaraw Beach. I would definitely stay here again. The rooms are simple but have a small fridge, a/c and TV. They also have a weight room and karaoke rooms, you spend most of the time outdoors and in the pool anyway.

              Tamaraw Beach Resort”

              Tamaraw Beach Resort is the place to stay at when in Puerto Galera when one wants to enjoy the beach. Its better to stay @ Tamaraw Beach Resort, where it's relatively quiet compared to White Beach. If one wants to enjoy White Beach and it's night life, it's just a 10-15 minutes walk or a short tricycle ride. The only drawback to Tamaraw Beach Resort is, aside from its own restaurant, there's no other place to eat at, in the vicinity. One can (call) order pizza @ Lucas', which I personally didn't enjoy.

              Worth it!”

              We stayed at tamaraw beach for 2d and 1n and it was a great choice. I hesitated to book at this hotel at first due to its location, which is off white beach but I'm so glad I did. The reception area was so nice. The hotel room was clean, so was the pool The ambiance was so relaxing. Staffs were friendly. Food was delicious but not pricey. If you're looking for a place to relax, this hotel is highly recommended. Sadly, we were not able to swim in the beach because of the angry waves due to typhoon odette. Location was a bit far from white beach but you can walk either along the beach or you can take the main road. We tried the second option since it was raining hard. Good thing the hotel shuttle passed by and gave us a hitch. We also enjoyed their game room. The only cons is that the bathroom door knob was not working which did not really matter. I will still choose this hotel when we have a chance to go back to Puerto Galera.

              One of the best in Puerto Galera! Definitely going back!”

              Thank you so much Tamaraw Beach Resort for the amazing service and hospitability the staff has shown during our extend stay due to the typhoon. Aside from the very spacious and comfortavle accomodation and the scenic beach front amenities, the staff was extremely helpful and kind to us and even went out of their way to keep us informed about the schedules and the status of the boat trips which were cancelled due to Rosita. Though we had to extend for 2 more days because of the cancellations, we had such a great time and I could never thank the staff enough. We will definitely go back to this place and I highly recommend this to other people as well! You get so much more than what you pay for and there's so much to do within the resort. Seriously, if you're planning to go to Galera, this is the place to go to. This was highly recommended to me by 2 other friends and I agree that the place is worth the hype. Oh and try the Tamaraw Adobo Rice for breakfast :) I really would like to commend the front desk manager and staff for the impeccable service.

              Nice Place, Great Location”

              Location, Nice Staff, Amazing Sunsets

              This is our third visit to the Tamaraw, and our fourth visit to Puerto Galera. The staff is always nice and attentive, every room faces the ocean, and the place is affordable for family travel. I like area and the resort because it draws a good mix of locals and foreigners. The hotel can arrange all the day trips or activities you want, including calling the ferry line to ensure that they come when it's time for you to leave. The free breakfast at the Tamaraw ranges from very good to below average. When the hotel is full, they have a buffet with a good selection of good food. When it is not, you get a few options and plate that isn't nearly filling. For the rest of the meals we like to wander over to White Beach for the day and eat lunch, and maybe dinner too, at one of the many restaurants there. There are plenty of shops to buy souvenirs there, and all of the water activities you would want are available there. Lunch/Dinner at the Tamaraw is not bad, but not spectacular. If you want a good pizza, go to Ciao Italia on White Beach, at the far west end of the beach (you can take the stairs down from the road, or you can scamper over the rocks from Aninuan Beach to get there). You'll pay more there, but the pizza is great. The Tamaraw is a nice, comfortable, affordable place. It could use a few upgrades, but it's a great value. You can go next door to the Sunset and pay twice as much if you want. It looks like a nice place. We've never been disappointed with the Tamaraw.

              Location, Facilites, and Staff

              We stayed for 2 nights at Tamaraw Beach Resort and we had a blast! Their staff were so warm and accommodating which made us feel at home. Location wise is good too especially if you are looking for a peace of mind which is really relaxing. White Beach is 5 minutes walk away from the resort and you can go their if you want to explore Puerto Galera. All in all it was a great experience and will definitely come back to this resort.

              privacy, beach front hotel, affordable, caters to tours, free shuttle, excellent food

              You'll love the privacy offered by this hotel. The rooms are clean and the staff are friendly. I had a bit of a problem with the key to my room since it takes some skill to open the door. I found out that this was also the case with the other rooms. They also have a gaming room where you can play with "giant" chess pieces, table tennis, and even billiards. The food is also great! Meals are offered at on the average. Their Tamaraw Rice is a must-try as well as their pinakbet. Tip for the budget-conscious, most of their meals are already good for two. They also offer a very affordable tour. Word of advice, check their rates first before accepting offers from other tour guides. Their glass bottom boat tour of the island runs at which includes snorkeling, fish feeding, and island hopping. For an additional , you can go to Tamaraw Falls which is also a must-see if you're visiting Puerto Galera for the first time.

              This is my first time to answer survey and I'm happy to take part as I am really pleased with my family's experience in the hotel. Best value for my money. Same rate with that of those in White Beach but this resort comes with an infinity pool and is located in a quiet area. Ideal for family specially for those travelling with young kids. They also have a nice view of Aninuan sunset. I highly recommend for anyone planning a trip to Puerto Galera. They also provide free shuttle to pick you up and drop you off to Muelle port. Water activities are also available. I suggest you look for kuya Jess, hotel staff. He's really accommodating and helpful and can give you a good deal. You'll find everything you need here. Staffs are really nice and breakfast is great. Unlike other hotels that comes with cheap breakfast just to claim that they have it included in your accommodation.

Indeed it is an amazing experienced (first time in my history of hotel accommodation) that we are allowed to check in as early as like that. Staff and crews were all friendly and accommodating. Thank you to Kuya Joseph (Driver) for picking us up and sending us off at Muelle Port, he even assists us to buy tickets for Fast Craft (1:00pm slots) despite the facts of first come first serve basis.

              Best Bang For The Buck”

              For less than a USD40 stay/night, I highly recommend this resort. Location is just the right distance from White Beach - away from the chaos but still close to the action. Swimming pool is a nice option. And it is on the beach front. We had 4 rooms which I find exceptional for a Puerto Galera standard. Hot & cold water, bidet, LCD TV with cable, and fantastic view of the beach. Only con is that the resort is already showing its age. But this did not dampen our Puerto Galera beach experience. No other property can match Tamaraw’s bargain price, accessibility, and decent rooms.

              Great hotel with awesome pool and view”

              The private strip of beach, the clean pool and the spacious room

              I loved our stay at Tamaraw Beach Resort and would book them again if we go to Puerto Galera. The room was very spacious and clean, there was a nice, although small piece of private beach in front of the hotel. Clean pool too. The food was also good. Not spectacular, but good just the same.

              Quiet and Relaxing”

              When looking where to stay in Puerto Galera there were too many options! We decided on Tamaraw because it was located on a quiet beach. We were thankful we stayed here. It was very relaxing and quiet. The staff are friendly, the views are beautiful, and the food at the restaurant is delicious. I was here with two friends and we agreed the barbecue chicken was absolutely delicious. One of our highlights though was using the videoke room. You can also walk to White Beach within 10 minutes or hop on a tricee just outside the hotel. Even though it wasn't that warm when we were there, we appreciated the air conditioning.

              Awesome experience as always”

              This has been our choice of resort whenever we are in Puerto Galera - been here prior the construction of the building and pool - and the experience has always been very pleasant and memorable. I love the renovations they made - the pool is an exciting bonus. They allowed us to check in early without any extra charges, and they allowed us to change rooms given that we have a one-year old and we were not comfortable being at the top level - the view at the 3rd floor was amazing though because you have an unobstructed view of the ocean. We opted for the beachfront cabana - its proximity to the beach was very practical when you're with kids. As always, the stay was so relaxing and because we checked in on a Sunday, it was almost like we have the beach all to ourselves. The kids loved the pool. Room was spacious and clean - there's hot water in the comfort room though sometimes it's not working - not a big deal though. Staff are helpful and courteous. Will definitely come back.

              Amazing”

              I highly recommend this resort. Staff and crews are friendly and accommodating. If you will go to Tamaraw Beach Resort, try to book your island hoping tour within the hotel. The price is cheaper compared to other offers but the features are amazing. They have their own boat which is like a mini yacht. The bangkero will also give you an option/suggestions and will not pressure you when you will like to leave or transfer to another island. They also have hotel pick up/shuttle which we didn't expect when we booked online. =) I will definitely go back to this resort to bring my family and friends. =)

              Free drinking water, infinity pool, free use of beach items

              We had so much fun at Puerto Galera. We were a 6 people group and we booked the apartment type hotel room. It's complete with a fridge, gas stove, kawali, kaldero, sandok, plates, a knife, and utensils, with a dining area, and living area. it had 2 bed rooms upstairs, one with a good view of the beach but without aircon, and one with no view but has aircon. There are grilling stations, and you can even buy uling for Php 30.00 There are water dispensers around the area where you can get free water. FYI, drinking water is very expensive in Puerto, 1L absolute drinking water cost around 70pesos. It's very close to the white beach, we walked through the rocky shore. When we got drunk, we rode a trike back to the hotel for Php 100.00 They offered snorkeling tours, parasailing, and the like. It was just as cheap as those offered in white beach, but you can make requests, like for us, we asked for our trip to be earlier so we can leave Puerto by 12nn. two thumbs up!

              Relaxing stay in Puerto Galera”

              We booked superior rooms. good thing we were in 3rd floor coz we had a nice view of the sea from the balcont/hallway. Each room has a small table outside in the balcony/hallway good for sipping coffee in the morning. Rooms are good enough for the price. There are 2 double beds, plus extra bed/pull-outs are available upon request. There is also a mini refrigerator inside. Cable tv is also present. Wifi however is limited to the reception/dining area. Infinity pool was deepest at 6ft, but there is a short shallow part for kids. Dining can be near the reception or in the resto near the pools or near the pools. Food is good, best seller for us was the Tamaraw special. There arebasketball courts, table tennis and billiards area which can be used for free. Service vehicle to and from Muelle port is also available. They can also shuttle to White beach for a small fee (cheaper than renting tricycle if you are more than 4pax). Staff are also very nice. They allowed us to check in early when we arrived. Resort has its own beach shared with 1 or 2 resorts so it offers some privacy and quiet, but it is also 5mins away from White Beach area for other activities/resto. Overall, relaxing stay. The family enjoyed a lot.

              Absolutely worth it!”

              For me Tamaraw Beach Resort is a must stay that have it’s own private beach front. And it’s accessible to the long white beach where you can find bars and restaurants, trust me, you want to go to white beach but you don’t want to stay in there. Better stay in Tamaraw Beach Resort for its reasonable price and privacy as you would needed for relaxation. Will definitely be back here. Not to mention the breakfast is yummy.

              Very nice accommodation, the hotel staff are nice and provides good service

              we enjoyed our stay in tamaraw hotel it has a nice location you are near aniluan falls white beach and talipanan beach. they also offer you tours to tamaraw falls and tukuran falls also a must visit attraction in puerto galera. the waters are clear and its nice to swim in. they also have jet skis and kayak you can rent. the food is also nice and yet not as expensive compared to the other hotels we stayed in. the room we got is the cheapest but it served its purpose (for sleeping) for most of the time of our stay there we were outside in the beach or exploring the beauty of the place. they have cable channels though the tv in our room is small. the hotel could use a swimming pool, it would be nice if they had one. nevertheless we enjoyed most of our stay there and will be coming back in the future if given a chance.
