If you're not a diving enthusiast but wants a nice place to stay in Dumaguete City, you'll like this. Rooms are individual cottages made of native materials, and all are facing the ocean, that's almost all there is to it in terms of "nice". The room rates are pricey but lacks the essential amenities, it has no cable TV, no...

Kim, We are very disappointed not to have met your expectations. Unfortunately as you and your partner had initially booked a Air Conditioned room for a single night through an online agency and decided to extend your stay with us we were unable to offer you the same room type. Unfortunately this can happen during peak season. As noted the...

My friend had won a four-night/six dive stay at Liquid. And frankly, when we arrived, I thought we had been had. Imagine my surprise to wake up for our first morning of diving to a veritable bamboo paradise.
