HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 January 2017 via mobile

Visited Scandi Divers Jan 2017, and stayed there for a week. Lovely people, cozy atmosphere and skilled dive instructors. I took an underwater photography course with Roni who works at Scandi, which is highly recommendable if you want to take better photos under water. Very enthusiastic guy, who knows everything about photography ! Would love to visit Scandi again.

I stayed at Scandi's and LaLaguna Beach resort which is next door. Both places had clean but basic rooms. At Scandi's I had a pool side room. Chose these places to stay as I am a keen snorkeler and I was able to do some okay snorkelling straight off the beach. The beach is clean but many dive boats are...

I was visiting Manila and was totally bored of the city scene. Without knowing where to go, I asked the girl I was dating at the time who found this place. Scandi is tucked away in a land far-far-away. It's located on beautiful lagoon. Absolutely spectacular views, spare no expense. The best part of my trip was the scuba diving!...

Just came back from an open water course with ScandiDiver. I have been to many islands in the Philippines and I can say that ScandiDivers are far and away the best I have gone with. In and out of the water, they took care of me. Conon (our instructor) was the best. He made sure that we had everything we...

I and my brother went to learn Open Water in Scandi Divers and we had a great time there. Richard Morante is our instructor and we feel lucky to be his students.
