I made a last minute decision to come to this Resort after spending one awful night at a nearby Resort. I arrived here based solely on the outside of the Resort as I was walking down the Beach, turned out to be a Lucky Decision! After meeting Marcus the Diving Instructor, I decided to take the PADI Open Water Training...

Really great staff, great atmosphere and the diving was exceptional. I arrived thinking I'd just dive for 4 days but decided on day 1 to get advanced open water cert. Glad I did. Instructor Marcus was top notch....really great. Dive staff is awesome. Was able to see Isle Verde which had to be one of the best dives I've ever...

A 10 mins walk from the Puerto Galera island jetty to the resort, and there isn't anyone from the resort to bring us over. Porters of the island are there but be prepared to pay a fee for that service. Room and crew is generally friendly and comfortable. Air-conditioner, hot shower, mini fridge and towels are provided too. However the...

Stayed here as a couple for five days, first time in the Philippines. For a diving trip this is a great place to base yourself but for a none-diving partner there is little to do around the beaches of Sabang. The rooms are quite basic, but the friendliness of the staff, the quality of the restaurant and diving operation are...

This place is really charming with nice bungalows and a small swimming pool. The price was 2000 pesos per night the bungalow ( 40 euros) after 20% discount as I dived there. The bungalow is cute, confortable with a good bed, good shower with warm water and air conditioning. The swimming pool is pleasant. The staff is friendly. For diving...

Too many good things to say about this little honey hole. First and foremost is staff. It felt like a family reunion even though I'd just met them. It was tough to leave. Many thanks for babysitting SiSa (Melody and Laurie) while I was away on dives with some very professional and squared away DM's. Front desk, dive shop, owners,...

My wife insisted we return here for the Indian food. With a big smile on her face my wife told me, "this the best meal I have had in the last year". They have a good, helpful staff.
