Clean basic rooms. A perfect base for diving. The Dive Master was excellent - he knew where to go and led the dives very professionally. There are lovely sunset views from the restaurant overlooking the sea. I would not recommend this for a beach holiday (there is small rocky beach where the boats are moored, but I would recommend it...

Not for staycation but good for diving. Good deal for accomodation including full board meal. However rooms needs refurbished. Kinda of old and smelly. Stay away from the room right beaide the front desk so creepy.

This is my 2nd time coming to this resort. The first time was a day trip last December 2016 to accompany my friends on their checkout dive. I recommend this resort for divers since their rates are affordable (if you plan on staying overnight for night dive etc) and they have professional dive masters and instructors to assist you. My...

Before everything else, please bear in mind that this is a dive resort and is constructed on top of a cliff/reef. Although it is located by the beach, the shore is not recommended for leisurely swims. Unlike other nearby dive resorts, this one did not require us to climb up and down a never ending staircase, this climb was bearable....

I was doing technical diving so the teacher was working with this resort. I booked a formula including lodging and food : breakfast, lunch and dinner.. The food was very delicious and with several choices. The room was small but clean and functional if you are here for diving.

Have to agree with another review which would separate the resort from the Dive Operation based here. The resort is just fine - the accommodation, staff, and food ALL GOOD. The diving here ALL BAD. Was assigned for the week to an Instructor/ DM - Mabel, who after the third day decided to teach a DM Course. After an attempt...

I did a day trip at Aqua Venture Reef Club, and the diving facilities were great. Really helpful and knowledgeable staff and boatmen, well-equipped, and the dive sites were numerous and fantastic (for a first-timer anyway, I have been told they are nothing compared to what you can see in other sites in the Philippines). If it would be your...

Stayed here for 3days 2nights. As I just entered the laid back and cozy style of the reception, I'm sold already. Grace the receptionist is very friendly and helpful. She have all the answers on my inquiries and requests. Initially I have a room at the back of the hotel but I asked if there is beach front and they...

Because the hotel was wonderful, but the diving was terrible. So...I put it at three stars. First off, the diving...I did two dives at Aqua Ventures. And because I was diving alone, I had to foot the bill for everything: the dive master, the boat, my gear, and my tanks (I've dove all over the Philippines, never been to a...
