There is so much beautiful hotels and resorts in Puerto Galera but i choose Hollywood Hotel because of a uniqueness. I love the view and scenery,the swimming pool, the rooms are big and spacious, very simple and clean, all new white linens and pillow, comfortable bed, the restaurant is amazing with great and delicious food, facilities are fantastic. The staff are so friendly and helpful.. I can say this is perfect choice for relaxation to everyone..
The resort features a swimming pool, kiddie pool, bar and restaurant that can also be used as a conference hall with more than 300 pax capacity.
The maximum capacity of the resort is up to 150 pax making it ideal for company outing or any large group package.
Puerto Galera is only three and a half hours away from Manila, first by bus to the port at Batangas City and then by boat/ferry.
Overall it’s your quick, affordable getaway from the hustle bustle of Manila and yeah, I’d say it’s worth taking the trip.
From Manila, take a Batangas City bus, it should cost around more or less 140.00pesos (that is the current fare price in Quezon City). The best way to go there is to commute, bringing a car would just cost you the parking fee at Batangas Pier. Trips to Batangas City leave as early as 3AM for Tritran in Quezon City. At the pier, there are a lot of trips going to Puerto Galera, the best way to go to White Beach is of course to take a boat that will bring you directly to the White Beach. There are boats leaving every 30 minutes to 1 hour. If there are no more trips directly to White Beach, you may take a ferry ride to the port of Puerto Galera. Ferry ride costs around the same of the boat rides to White Beach. From Muelle, you may ride a jeep or tricycle to White Beach which will cost around 30 to 50 pesos.
