a very relaxing and enjoyable beach outing”
White beach in PG is the perfect place for those whose intent is just to spend time swimming and lazing in a sandy beach. For fun but quiet surroundings, Villa Bienvenida is the best choice since it is far enough but walking distance from White Beach Resort and VM resort where the pub and nightlife is located (which last until 3 am, thus you won't be able to have a good night sleep because of the noise). I think the resort is reasonably priced at half priced of P1,788/night for two (since we were there in june, during low season) but would be considered too costly if its high season since ambiance is very simple, basic but clean. As advertised and delivered, hot and cold showers are there, towels, soap and tissue are provided, cable tv is working, staff are friendly and accommodating, food is delicious and reasonably priced but room is very basic with two queen beds and just a table with no lampshade. Aircon is working. If you are more after the ambiance of a luxurious hotel, Tamaraw beach resort in Aninuan (which is just 50 meters away and divides Aninuan from white beach by big rocks) is another option at same half price but has a swimming pool. But the beach perse in their location (Aninuan) is not sandy and has more stones and pebbles than white beach.
We went to Puerto Galera during the Holy Week. All other beach front hotels had huge crowds staying in front of them. However, we were able to get a lot of breathing space with Villa Bienvenida even if it's also a beach front hotel. My friends and family had a lot of beach space to themselves, even at night when the crowds are at their largest. The only concern was the speed of food service during breakfast. It wasn't fast but it's also probably due to the huge volume of orders. Will I stay in Villa Bienvenida again? Of course. :-)
clean, spacious room, good location”
Ms. Marie is very accommodating. She gave me their annex single detached cottage with veranda. The room was spacious. Clean bathroom. Its near the beach. I will definitely book in this resort again on my future visits to Puerto Galera.
Affordable and Good Location”
This was our first stay at this resort. It is located at one end of White Beach, placing it close to, but away from the loud entertainment section of the Beach. Our preference. It was also close to restaurants open for breakfast early in the mornings. While we missed a few of the amenities (welcoming drinks, drinking water, WiFi login) when we first checked in, the staff was quick to rectify the situation the following morning. The staff was complemented by several cats roaming the property, which provided me with added comfort since I have to leave two cats behind when I travel. As noted by others, the resort has open grounds which included shaded hammocks for relaxation. A very nice experience.
Good value for overnighters”
It was a short, overnight stay whenever we spend a weekend at Puerto Galera. Villa Bienvenida Beach Resort is a great place for on-the-budget travellers and overnighters. The place is clean, well-fenced and the people managing are great!
The room for two is huge and very spacious and clean. The hote is few steps away from sandy beach compared to other area its stoney. They have a restaurant and tables near shore with umbrella and the view of the beach while you eat. They have the best served food plus affordable price--compared to the majority of the resto nearby are overpriced. Just one con is that the servers needs improvement--- they need to be more attentive to customers who seats outside where the unbrella table is and be prompt with taking orders. I will definitey recommend and refer to friends and will definitey come back to this place again and again. Very friendly people and the owners as well are great.👍😍😎
Our stay at the Villa Bienvenida Beach Resort was pleasant. It is located on the quiet part of the beach but short walking distance to where bars with bands and fire dancers are. The room is basic with 2 queen size beds with a small table in between. The aircon is working properly. The bathroom has hot and cold water with clean towels. The television is small and the lighting not so good. The premises is well kept. The lady in charge is accommodating and pleasant.
Nice, quiet location at white beach”
The resort was ok. Nice, spacious, good airconditioning, and located at a quiet area of white beach. My only complaint is that shower water pressure was low and bathroom water not clean, not sure if thats how it is in puerto galera.
Good overnight stay”
Villa Bienvenida Beach Resort is a good choice for budget travelers. It has the makings of a decent accommodation plus it is clean and comfortable. Villa Bienvenida is located on the far end of the beach, thus the area of the resort is quiet and peaceful. No worries though as it is still accessible to the restaurants and stores in the beach. Staff are also easy to deal with.
Cozy and great location”
We've been to White Beach many times so our expectations are adjusted. For us, this place was great, quiet and right on the beach. The rooms are being renovated but we stayed in an older one which had 2 beds, warm shower and was quite big so that's really all we need but it was old and not really pretty but had all we needed. The grounds are clean even though there was some construction. The restaurant has decent food, cold beers and brewed coffee that is quite rare in White Beach. I would recommend to someone looking for comfy yet standard accommodations.
Very nice place”
We were lucky enough to have the best room, first floor with view on the beach. Great scenery, close to all White Beach restaurants and shops, great restaurant just in front. One thing, the room is not cleaned everyday, in fact wasn't cleaned once in the 6 days we stayed there...
Villa Bienvenida Nov 12”
This hotel is in a wonderful location right on the beach and whilst not in the hub of things on White Beach it is within easy walking distance of the bars and night life. The food is relatively simple but the menu is extensive and to be able to eat on the beach only metres from your hotel room was an aspect we thoroughly enjoyed. We therefore did not eat elsewhere for our 4 days. However with the exception of the owner/manager, guests are “just tolerated” rather than welcomed by the extensive staff for such a small establishment. Each request – even just obtaining a menu – seemed to be a major chore for them and extracting a smile or even a verbal response took a good deal of effort. We always felt we were intruding on their time (and sleep!) by asking for anything. Additionally there is no cleaning of the rooms and if you run out of items such as toilet paper you have to go looking for it yourself. In that sense it functions more like a boarding house than a hotel. The suggestion therefore that it is a 2.5 star hotel is a nonsense and accordingly it is overpriced.
Best Hotel on White Beach”
Open grounds make it quiet and relaxing... not like other crowded hotels on White Beach. Nice little cafe has good food. The people are very friendly.
Overpriced, but one of the better options here”
overpriced (like most of the philippines)with zero amenities, not even towel bar in the bathroom, razor thin mattresses, paper thin walls, but decent wi-fi. i found white beach ok, but disappointing, somewhat like a giant ashtray with bottles and litter. water is clear and pleasant. beware walking beach at night as i encountered a snake at water's edge and almost stepped on it. my advice: go to apo island or palawan for a truer tropical experience.
Accommodation is basic but clean. The resort has a beach frontage and view which is excellent. It is located on the quieter side of White Beach but just a few steps away from bars and restos along White Beach.
Wonderful hotel!! Loved it.”
We chose this resort based on reviews. I think they are under rated as their rooms were nice. The staff was amazing and we really enjoyed their pleasant smiles and assistance when needed. Good place to stay.
nice place on the quiet side of the beach”
this place was set on the quiet portion of white beach, so the ambiance was way better than the crowded areas. also, the 24 hour resto in front serves good meals
I was lucky i had the room in fron of the beach, i enjoyed a very nice view every day on my balcony, the room was clean , the aircon and wifi very good, the staff is friendly and the food good, i will go there again
Great location and staff. That’s all.”
Pros first. The location is great. The best and cleanest shoreline along White Beach for me. Away from the noisy bars and the crowd. Accommodating staff. That’s everything good about it. We got the Queen size with balcony 2nd flr- the bed is just double, not queen size. Musty smell. It’s clean but musty. Same with the bathroom- you can smell drainage fumes. Balcony was supposed to be what we paid for but we couldn’t even open/close the sliding doors properly- it was a struggle all the time. We couldn’t even close the screen door at all; so it’s either we close the glass sliding door and not enjoy the balcony or leave doors open and let mosquitoes in. They don’t allow masseuse in your room even for a fee. I had to request for extra pillows as the pillows we were provided were so small and thin. Shame, the location was really great and spacious. Someone buy this hotel and renovate it!
On the beach”
Room was very basic. Stayed 4 nights, no maid cleaning (you have to request it), water flow in shower extremely weak, beds too firm. Live music next door blares into window from 5 pm until 1am. Good: location is right on White Beach, AC worked good, request beachfront with balcony- enjoyed sitting out there. Close to all the other cafes and bars along the beachfront of White Beach. Onsite cafe served delicious Filipino food. White Beach is a good 15 minute ($300 peso) ride from Puerto Galera or Sebang.
