Our instructor Karlo was amazing, very patient with my boyfriend who was doing his PADI open water, very professional and patient. Thorough teaching in a relaxed environment. He learnt one to one! I went on an advanced dive with him and he was excellent at pointing out fish and helping with any problems I had. 5 stars would definitely recommend...

Karlo Agao was our dive instructor for our Discovery Dive. Despite the fact that Mother Nature and the coast guard were not working in our favor making it so that ALL boats were prohibited from going out, he still made it a very good experience. I was a little (or a lot) apprehensive about breathing underwater, but Karlo was able...

The hotel is super nice with amazing staff especially Gretchen. The surroundings are a bit noisy which is a pity. Night time you hear the bumpa bumpa together with the sound of the sea. Breakfast does not have big choice but is good, I would have liked more fruit and some yoghurt and dark bread. I asked for dark bread...

Worth money? Spend time with watercolors and you won't regret the service that they offer. Friendly people, very neat resort. When it comes to overall satisfaction, very very satisfied with our stay and we'll definitely stay again in the same resort.
