      Hi, One of my friends from japan is visiting home and we're planning on going to PG on Jan 6th-8th 2013 and we're still students so we're on a really tight budget. I wanna know if this site is legit they have a good deal but idk if its a scam or not. " mygalera.com/promo-weekdays-..., http://www.whitebeachpuertogalera.com/, seajewelonline.com/PromosAnd...;" also if any of you knows any package deal for or less than 3000/person that would be great, and would we be spending less if we dont avail any of the packages and just look for cheaper hotels on the spot?

      Family Accommodation on White Beach

      by jwnchu66 Online Now Aug 30, 2012 at 7:54 PM

      Hi VT'ers,
      Been a while since my last post. Another where-to-stay question I'm afraid.

      Done my research and have been to PG before. But the situation is a bit different this time. The missus and I are returning to PH in November (16-19th) and would like to treat her family to PG outing.

      We are a party of 9 in total (couple plus five adults and 1 child under 5yrs).

      I was thinking one room for missus and I, and another for the clan.

      The only place on White Beach that comes close on price and location is the DreamWave Hotel. But I have heard of a few bad reviews about bedbugs and other such tales.

      We have stayed at Mandelluke Suites next door, but they don't have a room for 5 adults.

      Do you have any experience or suggestions for places?

      Reasonable standards for rooms and AC. Not budget but also not expensive either as I'll be paying for all.

      We also intend to not pre-book but to get to White Beach and then decide. Is this going to be risky since we are going during or start of peak period?

    • nice clean beach, not many bystanders, affordable, pet friendly accomodation and transpo, big waves?

      by Lil_e Online Now Dec 10, 2011 at 8:11 PM

      planning on vacationing for a few days in pg. saw whitesand beach in youtube and didn't find it appealing. looking for nice beach, clean, with restaurants that serve delicious but affordable food; like most, looking for affordable nice accomodation for 5 adults, 2 teens and 1 kid. we can stay in 1 big studio so long as there's ample number of beds. would like a native style cottage. and also would accomodate pets. what beach resort has this description? and of course, how much will we be spending? also anxious about transpo. will the ferries and banca and roro take in pets? how much will we spend if we brought our vehicle. we were told we can leave it in calapan, after roro, but we can take it all the way to the resort, can't we?

      oh, and yes, one more very important question needing an answer. are the waves big during this time of the year? dec. 2011? it rains almost everyday in manila and the adults are worried about traveling by sea and concerned that we might not be able to enjoy swimming if the waves are big or if it is "typhoony"

      Hi VTers!

      We're a group of 3 adults planning to visit PG for the first time. We'd like to stay in a peaceful place/beach that is not so far from crazy Sabang. We'd like to do some water activities during the day like snorkelling, island-hopping and probably, just probably, intro diving. Hiking would also be okay. At night we'd like to explore and enjoy Sabang ;). My querries are:

      1. Which beach to stay?
      2. Recommended cheap but clean accomodation.
      3. Recommended restos.
      4. Recommended hangout at Sabang.
      5. How/where/how much to arrange hiking, snorkelling, island-hopping, etc.?
      6. Banca options and prices from Batangas to PG?

      TIA fellow VTers!

      ANY DIVERS AROUND!?!?!?

      by kiddoc58 Online Now Aug 3, 2010 at 12:20 AM

      Hi, I'm considering a ten day trip to PI in mid September for diving. I only have OW cert(PADI), and not many dives since being certified two years ago. I was originally thinking of the Visayas, but I really would rather not use my travel time just to get to a more remote locale, (such as Cebu, Bohol or Sipalay, maybe next time), so now I'm thinking of PG which is relatively close to Manila and the airport.

      What about PG and the surrounding area? Does anyone have an opinion about diving in the area? I hear that Sabang is good with other spots also nearby.

      Any recommendations for diving site, operator/centers, rooms, eats and nightlife would be greatly asppreciated. I'm looking for someplace not too busy. I'm traveling alone and I don't need a 5* resort, clean and cheap would do just fine.

      Thanks fellow travellers

    • Tamaraw Beach Resort; how to get there?!

      by Decathlete Online Now Jun 14, 2010 at 4:05 AM

      Hey,
      we are going to stay at Tamaraw Beach Resort in Aninuan for a few days in late June. We'll arrive in Manila and the question is how to get to the resort?
      I guess we'll just take a bus from Manila to Batangas and then hop on one of the ferries to Puerto Galera. Does anyone know if we'll have to take another boat from there to Tamaraw Beach? I tried to get in contact with the people from the resort but I didn't get any reply.

      And one question about the weather: I know it's gonna be rainy season and it could be sunny or pouring down the whole day or just anything in between...but what can you "usually" expect? I wouldn't mind a rain shower every day as long as it's not too bad...

      Thanks in advance, any advice is welcome!

      Hi guys! I'm planning to spend my birthday (Valentines Day) in Puerto Galera. I am not familiar with the place since I have not been there yet.
      I need to know:

      1. How to get there from Manila?

      2. what's the best deal (cheapest) accommodation I could get since I am traveling alone. I don't need a fancy one.

      3. Is Puerto Galera expensive on Valentines Day?

      4. I have no contacts there yet neither do I know any hotel to stay. Is it ok to just go there directly and look for a hotel or do I need to book in advance?

      I would greatly appreciate any suggestions/help you could extend. I still have 1 week to plan for my getaway.

      Thanks and God bless!
