As the mini-bus were driving through this dirt track into the resort, I was kind of warning myself, "ok now, don't expect much". However, my days there, the dives, it's like a hidden gem, away from the buzz and nestle in nature kind of resort (you don't hear a whizzing sound of traffic. Dive operations are professional! I was assigned...

I stayed at Liquid Dumaguete only in order to get my OWD certification, booking few months in advance. When I showed up, they didn’t know my diving arrangement, and I was never greeted by any of the three people (Jim, Maria or Zoe) that I’ve exchanged emails with. I was introduced to an instructor named Carlo, and he said we’ll...

Well, this being a 4th review and I don't remember exactly which visit to Liquid Dumaguete kinda says enough already. Amazingly they made some impovements since my last visit :) Pool bar zone got better, more places to sit and more alive, probably because last year it was brand new.

We spent 3 days at Liquid and it was great. This was our first stop in the Philippines and our first time in Philippines and it didn't disappoint. My husband would dive all day and I would lay by the pool, on the beach or enjoy some good music and food at the bar. All and all I would recommend...

We traveled to Liquid Dumaguete as a family with the main focus to dive and that's what we got at Liquid. As a PADI 5 star facility diving is what they good at.

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...
