About Papa Fred's Beach Resort

This relaxed seafront hotel enjoys a prime position on Sabang Beach's beautiful bay and is just a stone's throw from the town's restaurants and bars. On-site dining and a rooftop pool complement Papa Fred's Beach Resort's premier location and stunning views.

Straightforward guest rooms with plain decor and tile or stone floors feature flat-screen TVs, safes, and mini-fridges. Upgraded rooms add hot tubs and/or kitchenettes. Some quarters look out over the bay; most have verandahs.

Guests can enjoy water-sports and arrange diving tours for an additional fee. Other amenities include a sun deck, 24-hour reception, and free Wi-Fi. Airport transfers are offered (fees may apply) as well.

A casual and airy steakhouse with balconies offers international, meat-based meals and ocean vistas.

Papa Fred's Beach Resort is just over four kilometres from Puerto Galera town, and around 18 kilometres from the scenic Tamaraw Waterfalls. Sabang Ferry Terminal is a little over 100 metres away.

Positive Reviews

Superb location

Visitors to this hotel often identify its location as a high point. Being directly on the beach goes down very well indeed, as does having the town's restaurants, pubs, and bars within a very easy walk. The ease with which the pier/ferry terminal can be reached is deemed a big plus too.

Awesome views

The stunning vistas of the bay, with its sparkling blue waters and swaying palm trees, are something beguiled guests reference often in reviews. Evidently, the views from the restaurant and top-floor accommodations are nothing short of sensational.

Guest rooms tick all the right boxes

Travellers are, for the most part, pretty impressed with the accommodations at this hotel. With their comfy beds, decent cable TVs, and efficient air conditioning units, the (surprisingly spacious) guest rooms here provide everything a visitor might need to enjoy a comfortable stay.

Negative Reviews

Expensive restaurant food

While diners are, in the main, quite satisfied with the quality of the food served up at the hotel's steakhouse restaurant; they're uniformly unimpressed with the prices charged there. Dismayed visitors say the prices are on a par with those charged in top-class Manila restaurants.

Can't swim on the beach

Travellers are extremely disappointed to discover that, because there are so many small boats anchored there, the beautiful looking bay on the hotel's doorstep isn't conducive to swimming. Fed up reviewers say they need to travel to other beaches to enjoy the privilege of swimming in the sea.

Free Wi-Fi is a let down

Though guests are happy to find out the hotel offers free Wi-Fi, many are disappointed by its actual performance. Disgruntled reviewers complain the signal here is laggy and unstable much of the time.
