Still an awesome place to stay on a divcation.
Muelle is a picturesque sleepy little port away from the hustle and bustle of its larger rival Sabang. Badladz is literally 3 minutes walk from the pier. The food is good and the diving is better. Small dive groups, even had one dive with just myself and the dive master! If you are into loud nightlife then the place is not for you. The staff here are very friendly and will go out of their way to help you get the most from your divcation. Their equipment is in good condition and well maintained. The dive masters are excellent. The in house food is great and there are many restaurants in easy walking distance. If you do desire a bit of nightlife Sabang or White Beach are easy options by trike. I've stayed here before and will continue to stay here. The only negative I have is lack of in room wifi.

Family friendly dive resort in Puerto Galera
The resort is perfectly located, just few steps away from the Muelle Pier. Walking distance to shops for basic necessities (shampoo, drinking water, snacks) as well as restaurants and 2 local bars. The rooms are basic (only provide a small piece of soap and toilet paper) and clean. The simple restaurant/cafeteria/reception is always welcoming, serving simple meals and refreshments. As our family objective was to dive, we are very satisfied with the service provided. There's sufficient dive equipment. Bohn, the dive master that took care of my family was very helpful and patient. As we have 2 junior divers, he was always abiding by the allowed depth and ensuring that we still had a enjoyable time. Romel, the boat captain was also very helpful ensuring the kids get on and off the boat safely, helping us with the gear and sharing local knowledge. Last but not least, Gavin, Chris and the girls at the resort are always smiling and ready to help. After spending 4 days, we will definitely return for more as this place has lots to offer.

THE Vacation Spot!!!!!
EXCELLENT time spent here! The staff is, bar none, the best I have had in the Philippines. The Dive Masters are very well trained, safety conscious and very patient. If you are an experienced or inexperienced diver THIS is the place to go to enjoy your time to the upmost of your ability. I simply cannot say enough about my time spent here but rest assured I will always go back to Badladz!

Happy place for a diver!!!
For those who want to just dive and relax, Badladz Dive Resort is a good choice. For me, if you just want to dive and need decent accommodation, it's more than enough for it's very reasonable price. Don't go expecting a luxurious stay if you are traveling on a budget (yeah, I've read the negative reviews). LOCATION 1. Less than 5mins walk from Muelle port. 2. Near the main highway, convenience stores, market, and hole-in-the-wall dining places. 3. 5mins from a legit bank where there's an ATM machine and even Western Union. To me this is VERY IMPORTANT. ROOMS, FACILITIES, and SERVICE Good: 1. The place have balconies on all levels that will give you a nice view of the bay. 2. Rooms are clean, outdated but not dilapidated, yet well maintained. 3. I appreciate how they are environmentally conscious in promoting garbage segregation, less change of linen, less water and power usage, and rooms have electric fans should you wish to turn off the air conditioning and still have good ventilation. 4. Staffs are commendable. Very friendly, decent, jolly, helpful, and diligent. 5. If you stay at their dive resort, if I'm not mistaken, you can still use the facilities of their Beach Resort, which is really nice! Not so good: 1. While I understand that the Dive Resort is trying to be aspirational by having a really nice bar and restaurant (because some divers need lots of booze and good food after a dive), it would be complete if there is a training pool also, but the pool is at their Beach Resort which is only a km away. That's where they conduct also their pool training for certifications. Maybe if they have a bigger lot, they would've included a pool there. 2. I know this is not their fault, but there seems to be power fluctuations in the island. You would notice it in the air conditioning. But at least they have fans should the power supply becomes low. Generators may or may not be a good idea because of the noice that it will produce. 3. Wi-fi is only available at the restaurant area. :( Overall, this a really convenient and very good place to stay for extroverted-introvert dynamic people, like myself. You get privacy, but if you decide to go to the crowded spots, local transportation to those places are just in the area.

I stayed for the first time at Badladz Dive Resort and had a fantastic 3 days of diving with Chris and Gavin who gave me some excellent tips to help improve my diving. Being low season meant the resort was quite, the dive sites were not crowded and the water temp. was 28c. If you want nightlife and more restaurants/bars then Sabang is only 15 minutes away by trike. I followed Sean's advice to travel down from Manila using the bus and boat which is very cheap and all went well (recommend you watch his video). The only problem was getting the taxi driver in Manila to get me to the right bus station. Gavin told me afterwards that unless you are staying in Quezon City (then go to CUBAO Bus Terminal) then your best option is the LRT BUENDIA Bus Terminal. When I arrived everyone made me very welcome, the rooms were spotlessly clean and the bar/restaurant girls (Mary, Venessa and Mabel - see pic) took great care of me. I was very pleased with Badladz as the diving, food and staff exceeded my expectations. PS. I was thinking of going to dive and stay at BIG APPLE, but I found that its right in the centre of Sabang with a 24 hour bar. So if you are a good lad or lady, I recommend you stay and dive with BADLADZ!
