Comments Atlantis Puerto Galera is a delightful hotel resort. The buildings reminded me of the Flintstones.
Rooms are well spaced out around the property. Access to most rooms require use of stairs. The beds are very comfortable. My only complaint about the room was not enough bath towels...only two for two people. Each room is also provided two green striped pool-side towels that you cannot take on the dive boat.
The dinning room is large and well staffed. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. "Designer" coffees are available. Full bar.
The dive shop is well staffed with excellent dive guides. Diving is done from skiffs...they are not covered and required divers to wade out to board. The harbor is very busy and the water is filthy...trash everywhere.
