My partner and I spent four nights here to do some diving. Set on little la Laguna beach just far enough away from the seediness of Sabang, this was the perfect spot for a diving holiday. We booked the "fundiving package" which included 2 fun dives in the room rate. This also included the "poolside suites". The rooms were spacious,...

My wife and I stayed here from November 1 to November 5. From the moment we arrived we were warmly greeted by the staff with a mango shake and cool towel to refresh us from our walk to the resort. The resort is immaculately kept and every encounter we had we the staff was pleasant. Our spa suite was very...

My wife and I were there recently. Had a fabulous time and the staff are amazing! They helped us with securing tours in the area and anything else we asked about. They are the best! We recommend everyone to go there and relax. Enjoy the local sights. Especially the snorkeling! It’s fantastic if you are not a scuba diver.

You could call it a perfect package deal. Not because of the reasonable prices and internet deals but the whole experience from the moment I arrived on the beach to the walk back down the beach again with the staff carrying my bags to the boat home. It was difficult to fault. Was it the greeting and ongoing exceptional service...

The OOTB is an hotel for diving holidays. It is very well situated, close to dive center Action Divers, and far away from the noisy Sabang center. Staff is very friendly and very helpful. Rooms and villa's are very good for Philippine standards. The restaurant is excellent and certainly one of the best places in that area for dining.

Upon my arrival at the resort, the staff provided very tasty banana milkshake and icy towel for our refreshment. We received warm welcome from everyone there. The breakfast is extremely good!!! There are many choices and every single one is worth trying. We also had lunch at their restaurant. The dishes, especially Philippine food is so yummy that I still...

JB and his team have created a first class resort. Nothing is to much trouble, from the booking through to the return trip to the mainland. I recommend OOTB to any traveller seeking a quality holiday.
