First of all I would like to give my thanks to the staff that attended us. We are a total of 22 person..and thats a lot..its really hard to find a place that can accomodate such number, and whatsmore you owned the entire villa. This place is really good, and the price is really cheap compare to others for such a large group. Just that because its a mangrove you'll need to go to other beach if you want to have a nice swim and have some activities. And they have extreme water shortage, but were fine with it given they have such large water container we could just wait till its full again..hehe..that's how filipinos as long as were together and have a nice place to stay others doesn't matter at all. So All in all we had a great nice and happy memories in this place,my friends enjoyed it a lot. And we wished to come back again in this paradise.thank you and more powers!!!

The place was really nice. The housekeepers were very accommodating, they made excellent dishes. It may be a bit far from the white beach but the ride going to the beach was extremely exciting(not for the fainthearted). It's good that they have kayaks and boat FOR NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. The owner Suzie was also very patient with us during the confirmation even if we had to cancel one night due to our office schedule. She also helped us find transport for our trip (by referral). The place is ideal for those who wants to relax and step away from the hustle and bustle of the city and for a large group(we were a group of 15 plus 3 kids). There are just small things i noticed (but too small of a problem to be a problem, did not affect our vacation at all), when the power went out they did not turn on the generator right away, we had to ask because we are about to leave and need to charge our phones and we asked for an extra mattress but did not get it, maybe the housekeepers were too busy with our request inside the kitchen(we had so much request but still they delivered), but it was ok, anyways 2 of us slept on the couch because of the soccer game. The place is like a home away from your home. and there's free WIFI!!!

“A Peaceful and Relaxing Stay”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

people found this review helpful

Right after our trip from Boracay my wife and I went to Puerto Galera with our whole family and we stayed in this wonderful and spacious villa. We planned our Puerto Galera trip months ahead but we really had a hard time deciding on where to stay considering the big number of our group. We are a group of 7 adults and 4 kids. I spent many hours in the internet looking for a suitable place for our group until I found this place in Trip Advisor. Finding a hotel for an extended family is sometimes hard as most of the members of the group want to stay in one room or at least in a place where you can bond together even up to the wee hours but within your own privacy and without disturbing other people. The first time I found about this place I immediately knew this is the perfect place for our group.

Booking is easy. All you have to do is e-mail the owner Alan Burrel ( aburrell.ph@gmail.com ). I promptly received a reply from him with complete information of the place and reservation procedures. His wife Suzie is equally very helpful and patient in answering my queries. We met them when we arrived at the villa and they are a very nice couple.

The villa is spacious. It has 3 floors. The top floor has 4 rooms including the master’s bedroom that is facing the sea and the wonderful view of the island. It has a big veranda where you can relax and just watch boats pass by or just simply soak under the sun. The second floor houses the kitchen which is adequately equipped, the living room with sofas and decent size LCD TV, the dining area and a balcony with comfortable seats and a cushioned swing. Our three little musketeers just went crazy with this swing and this was their instant favourite seat in the house. The ground floor has 2 comfortable rooms that also offer a nice view of the island. I really like the fact that the rooms facing the sea have glass walls and doors so you can still enjoy the view outside even if you are inside the room. Each room has its own bathroom and there is another comfort room at the living room.

Getting there may not be easy but I highly recommend that you avail of their transportation package if you are a big group. This will make your travel a breeze. I took their land and sea arrangements for Php 12,000 (back and forth) and I can say it was a very wise decision. Tony who provides the van service is a professional. He picked us up from our house right on time same as when he picked us up from a port in Batangas back to our house. The charter boat “Poseidon” is big and you will feel very safe even if you are encountering big waves. You can contact Tony at +639278099143.

I also suggest that you avail of the services of their staffs for Php 400 a day. They would do the cooking and shopping for you. Don’t worry about getting short changed as it seems they are honest folks. They provided us with receipts of the things they bought for us which appear to be just within the usual price. This would save you a lot of time and make you achieve the main objective of your vacation which is to relax and enjoy. They also offer free use of their kayaks and they have a boat that you can use for a reasonable fee in going around.

Overall we had a very relaxing and wonderful stay in this place. I highly recommend this villa especially to a big group or family. You can visit their website http://puertogaleravillas.com/ to get more information.

This villa is amazing. It had fabulous service, tidiness and it is in a great location, with great views. I recommend it to large groups. We really enjoyed our stay here. If you are looking for a holiday to relax or to be involved in water activities, then this is perfect.

“Brilliant Villa & Staff”
Reviewed 28 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Many thanks to Alan for his patience during my reservation period. Our guest numbers kept changing but he didn't rush me into making a deposit until our plans got sorted out. The 50/50 payment plan was executed very well & I have nothing but praise for how Alan conducts his business.

We spent 4 nites in the Oceanside Villa & it was sensational. The villa itself is huge, gorgeous and provides incredible views of the surrounding bay & jungle covered hills. We spent a good chunk of our time just sitting on the main verandha, drinking San Miguels, listening to music & playing cards. The staff working during our stay was fantastic. They were very honest & provided us with receipts for every purchase they made for us (trikes, crates of beer, food, etc). In addition, they were fantastic cooks & made us some truly delicious meals. We were all very impressed.

The location of the property doesn't provide the greatest swimming conditions directly in front but you can hire the owners' private bangka for the day & tour around the neighboring islands/beaches at a very reasonable rate. Do yourself a favor and gather some snorkeling gear & head to Long Beach...very good coral & fish populations. A stop at Elizabeths' Hideaway Resort is a great option for lunch/beverages on a very nice stretch of beach. If you don't mind walking then you can access Big La Laguna in about 15mins & Sabang takes about 25mins. You'll pass through the local villages where everyone is very friendly & respects your privacy.

Our transfers to/from Muelle pier were flawless as was everything else about our stay at this property. I would highly recommend Puerto Galera Villas to my family, friends & anyone who takes the time to read this review.
