We got their during peak season (new year) and the hotel definitel NOT worth the money. Staff was trying hard but we had to wait and change rooms twice. I would not recommend it for more tham 2500 PHP.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Marc Vincent Dive Resort, Puerto Galera. The room, whilst no overly spacious, had modern decor and was bright and very clean. The room featured a large comfortable bed and the bathroom was modern, clean and well stocked with the necessities. Wardrobe availability would be an improvement, however. Hotel location was great being within a 5-10 minute leisurely stroll to the beach and the esplanade of cafes and restaurants. Hotel staff, both at reception and the housekeeping team, were all very helpful, polite, friendly and efficient. Check-in was very straightforward and the staff were always very accommodating to our needs. Breakfast was good, but limited in choice unfortunately. The pool, located central to the main hotel building, was very inviting, though a little chilly during the season we stayed there. We will be returning and recommend that other travellers consider this hotel choice. There are other less expensive hotels in the area, but you get what you pay for and the Marc Vincent Dive Resort, overall, was very good to excellent in most categories. We can say this with confidence since we are frequent and discerning travellers.
