Went here a few weeks ago and had a very nice time. The Badladz team were all lovely - both at the hotel and the dive staff, the rooms were great (the view of the bay in the morning was especially good), and the nachos were especially good. Probably not the *best* meal choice on my part to eat a...

We did our PADI Advanced Open Water course at Badladz Dive Resort. We really liked the professional attitude of our instructor, Christian. He took the time to explain us the assignments, to review the theory and to give us some tips&tricks to improve our diving. Besides this he also made the dives a lot of fun, so it was not...

I stayed at the Badladz Beach resort, just 5 minutes from the Dive resort. I visited the Dive resort frequently and did some diving with the fantastic crew there. I love this place and I would recommend this for anyone interested in diving or just enjoying a quiet vacation!

Went there in early 2017. Gavin (owner) was super cool. I had the pleasure of Diving with either Christian or Bon for 6 dives over 3 days and they were excellent Divemasters. Highly recommend them both. My only qualm was that it was sometimes tough to get sleep in their hotel, only because of roosters/partiers, which isn't badladz's fault nor...

Gavin and Chris took us on four dives over two days. They worked hard to show us the unparalleled biodiversity offered by Sabang. While the town of Sabang leaves a bit to be desired, all that washes away the second you go below the surface. Gavin and Chris took us to see multiple wrecks, a beautiful sea snake, sea turtles,...

I really loved my stay at Badladz dive resort. To start, the location is perfect near the pier in the peaceful place. In the morning you just have to wake up on time and board for diving. THE BIG POSITIVE POINT is the staff: friendly, helpful and patient. They always take care of you with a big smile. The restaurant...

We took a chance to travel to Mindoro after the Typhoon and saw that this was rated 4.5 stars on TA. We got off the banka boat and the resort is a short walk from the pier. I asked to see the room before we committed to staying for 2 nights. I put a lot of trust in TA reviewers...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The best of the Puerto Galera resorts! Our hotel is small, quiet and very clean. Located on the Yacht Harbour in Puerto Galera Bay at the "quiet" end of the main tourist pier, Muelle Pier. Our location is very convenient for travelers. You will be only 6 km from both Sabang and White Beach making it the best of both worlds. This makes it a nice alternative to the crowds at both these locations yet close enough to enjoy these spots, far enough away for rest and relaxation. You simply MUST try our famous International restaurant. We are highly rated here on TripAdvisor and serve the best Mexican food on the island. If you have come to learn how to dive, whether you are a complete beginner and just started learning to dive, or you’re an experienced diver looking to expand your qualifications, you’ve come to the right place. Our in-house dive shop offers you everything you need to discover the beautiful underwater world of Puerto Galera – no matter what your skill level is. We’ll take you to the best diving spots in Puerto Galera, which is one of the most beautiful bays in the world. You will find that staying here at BADLADZ Dive Resort is great value for your money and offers many conveniences whether you're here to dive or to enjoy the surrounding activities. ... more   less
