              Great for a relaxing as well as fun-filled vacation”

              Review of El Canionero Stay: Aug 7 – 14, 2017 Family with 2 children, Europe We are a family with two childern, aged 7 and 10, living in Europe and we wanted to spend a quiet vacation not far from Mero Manila. Using Google maps, we found Talipanan Beach on the island of Mindoro and thanks to Agoda we discovered the El Canionero Beach Resort. Talipanan was perfect for us. It was quiet, there were only about 7 or 8 resorts, all of which were hardly occupied as it was off-season. Nevertheless, it was reachable with road transport. A special trip with the tricycle from the town center to this beach costs 200 pesos. The beach is very long, and during low tide one could walk from the western end of Talipanan Beach up until the eastern end of Aninuan Beach. The water is shallow making it ideal for small children. The sand is very fine and although there are lots of stones they are smooth. At El Canionero Resort, we were very satisfied. The jewel of this place is the friendliness of the people. The staff would not give you the impression of being professionally trained like in most five-star resorts / hotels. But one would feel the sincerity in their smiles. They are likewise very helpful and reliable. We occupied a room with one big bed and a bunk bed. There were no closets but there were more than enough shelves to store our luggage. The toilet and bath, though a bit small, were functional and warm water for the shower was available. The fridge was a good idea. Our room was located at the beachfront. And we enjoyed the sitting area in front of our room where we spent lots of hours reading and snacking. In the resturant we enjoyed the pizzas immensely. We tried restaurants in the other resorts, but our children preferred the El Canionero pizzas. The following are likewise recommendable: crepes, fish dishes, shakes. The tables are situated around the pool in the midst of the garden. After meals, we often lingered, it was a very relaxing atmosphere.

              Place where you feel comfortably at home.”

              The location of the hotel, its general set-up is simple and very cosy. The beach in front and the forest in the back create a fabulous corner for complete relaxation.

              My family spent a wonderful long weekend in El Canonero Diving & Beach Resort in October 2011. The place is very simple but provides necessary comfort: we could take good care of our 8-months old daughter. Although the beach is very good, the resort has a swimming pool where my son was playing safely all the day through. The room was rather small but sufficient as we were spending most of our time outside on the balcony, on the beach, next to the pool or in two restaurants. (Important: do not swim far to the left side: very strong opposite current on return.) The staff is friendly and ready to help: we had called the resort in advance and had all the additional requests ready when arrived.

              Good Location, friendly and helpful staff”

              The resort could do with some refurbishment, the staff and all friendly and helpful and the food there whilst good is slightly more expensive than the other Italian resort a stones throw away. However, I've been to Talipanan over 6 times in the past 3 years and this time was vastly disapointed due to circumstances beyond the hotel's control the beach has degraded vastly making it difficult to walk along it due to the tide coming up to the front of El Canonero all the time. In the year since I last visited it's also been developed a lot which has take away a lot of the special feeling of the place. Good clean pool, being cleaned all the time and from what I saw they take their diving instruction seriously.

              Excellent Budget Resort”

              The owner is an Italian, and the resort's restaurant has an extremely wide assortment of excellent Italian cuisine. Their very big menu choices also include Filipino food and dishes from a wide variety of other countries. The great Italian food and the friendly and helpful staff make this budget beach and diving resort very worthwhile. My kids and I plan to return in the near future for scuba diving lessons and more diving experiences in Puerto Galera's many outstanding snorkeling and diving locations.

              Great location”

              El Canonero is located at Talipanan beach where it is not crowded (unlike White beach) so it is perfect for rest and relaxation. They have a pool which is good when you are tired of the salty sea and sand (they have a kiddie pool for your kids!). The food is also good, though a bit more pricey than the other restaurants available at the area. The room is a bit dark but it is spacious (Rm. 1) that the aircon is not powerful enough to cool the whole area.

              Looking for a stay at the beach?”

              Stay here at the beautiful beach in Puerto Galera. During season time it’s gorgeous here. If you can’t effort the expensive resorts around here than this is the right for you. Best value. The rooms are simple but the experience is unique. I recommend to get rent a scooter at the station down the street for a couple of days and drive around and explore. You wake up and you can go for a swim in the ocean or pool just steps away. The staff is very welcoming. We’ll come back.

              Vacation here was unforgetable!!”

              I still remember when I came to the resort. I was going with tricyle with my 4 friends (all girls) from Calipanan, and the weather is not good because its rain all day! The road to go to the resort is still need improvement because it is still rocks and a bit slippery. And I arrived at the resort at around 8.30 pm, luckily the resort still open. They are very helpful and friendly. The resort has a private beach and actually if it is not rain when I came, it will be a perfect holiday for us to spend our time at the beach and get tan.

              Staff answered a lot of questions for us and helped us with almost everything. Ate Diane was very accommodating and courteous. She assisted us all throughout our stay. The swimming pool was convenient for us since it rained the (almost whole) duration of our stay. The place was clean and pet friendly too! Pizza was great! They make their own ice cream too!

              Pros: The place is peaceful. It's the last resort in Puerto Galera Not too pricey but do not expect excellent facilities. Food is ok. Water is clear. Cons: The AC in our room does not cool the room well so it's like we just paid for the bed. The rooms needs renovation. Hygiene kits are very basic. The towel looks really old. Tricycle ride is pricey. Make sure to bring enough money because ATM is in "Bayan" pa which is 150 pesos worth of ride.

              Chillest place if you want to stay away from the noise! We extended our stay for a day and had no problem with it (though we almost couldn’t since it’s fully book that day). Nice and genuine staff, great food. It’s beach front (and located at the tail end of the shore) so we had no problem enjoying the ocean, and less people! Improvement on the facilities, they’re kinda old - maybe because they’re going for rustic feels - yet very clean.

              All excellent in location, cleanliness and staff are very accommodating. Swimming pool and beach are clean. Food is quite expensive but delicious and servings are generous. Problem is that the electricity is very inconsistent and can be very hot in the afternoon and evening. Though there is a generator, it doesn't cover airconditioning and fridge. All in all, ok.

              The receptionist was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel's beachfront location plus nearby restaurants make it really easy to switch from swimming to sleeping to eating. The room was big and very clean but could get an overhaul. The shower area was open overhead. Hence, you will feel the cold air from the AC while showering. My friend had to turn off the room's AC every time she showered because of this. A bonus point for our room was the abundance of shelves; there was shelving everywhere! For me, this is very important because I am kind of OC with my stuff. I like things to have its own place and the shelves gave room for our things and it also made packing up easier since the stuff were all in place. The swimming pool was clean enough for me. Around the pool were cottages and table and chairs and well kept bermuda grass. We were able to sleep and clean ourselves up comfortably. There's a big chance that I will stay there again.

              Close to beach and djungle

              We stayed at el canonero for 6 nights in december. Our first impression was that the hotel has a quite remote location, although quiet and close to the nice Talipanan beach. The restaurant was okay, but the menu was not very exciting. Nice beach but many annoying vendors, although, less than on white beach.
