Casa Azul is an old colonial building lovingly restored and refurbished. It is of historical importance to Tofo as it was one of the first houses built here.

The brand new rooms are stylishly decorated and have panoramic views of the beach.

Asia Divers and El Galleon Dive Resort - Puerto Galera, Philippines
Asia Divers and El Galleon Resorts are located in Puerto Galera on the North East tip of Mindoro. Puerto Galera was originally a fishing community. Then in the 1980s, the Philippines Government discovered just how many species of fish and corals there are here and declared the entire area a Marine Reserve. Once a thriving fishing village, Puerto Galera soon became the premier scuba diving destination in the Philippines.
It was around this time that the El Galleon resort came into existence along with Asia Divers who have been catering for top class vacations ever since. The El Galleon resort is a premier diving resort just a couple of hours South of Manila, providing unashamed luxury at prices that most Westerners would expect to pay for a two star hotel. Hotel rooms in the resort start for as little as $56 a night.
The diving here is unquestionably the best of anywhere in Oriental Mindoro and some would say all the Philippines or Asia.
If you are looking for a beach vacation then come to El Galleon, the jewel of the Philippines, where the resort staff will do their very best to spoil you.
If you like to scuba dive, then let us tell you right away that our resort is smack in the middle of a marine reserve, created and protected by the Philippines government.
If you are looking for a romantic resort, this really is where y ou will experience the magic of the Orient. It's hardly surprising then that we are so popular with honeymoon couples here in the Philippines.
Our dive facility here in Puerto Galera is less than two years old and there is nothing like it in Asia! We have a huge private diving platform with a large pontoon at the end of it. No other dive shops or resorts in the area have this. Boats can easily dock on the pontoon making it easy for divers to get on and off the boats. Each diver has their own crate in the dive shop to store their gear. There are showers, rinse tanks, towels and drinking water right there. We also have a dedicated camera room with computers available for use and a rinse tank specifically for cameras. The dive deck has a lot of space, so even when the shop is busy you never feel crowded. It’s a very relaxed feeling, and you know that you’re being well looked after by the experienced diving guides and crew who are always there to help you with anything you may need.
We have some fin-tastic package prices with poolside rooms starting at $68 per night double occupancy, boat dives are $32 each, half board meal package is $30 per person per day.
