We went for a dive vacation, but this trip turned out to be a tour of the local hospitals. It's always scary to get sick being so far away from home, but the folks at El Dorado made sure we were okay. They introduced us to an earthly angel who took care of us the whole time, and made sure...

Just returned from an 8 night stay at this resort. From arranging the reservation (thanks Merlita), to our pick up at the ferry terminal all he way to check out nothing was left for us to do but enjoy and relax. Staff were friendly and efficient and more than helpful. Had an especially great time with the girls at the...

We stayed here 2 days as part of a diving safari. The room was nice, spacious enough with aircon, large bed and good shower. There is a good pool, relaxing area, chairs, garden, restaurant. Beautiful. My biggest complaint (!) was that the wifi wasn't free - something you expect these days for resorts of this type.

My fiance and I stayed here for 4 days and we had a wonderful time. I learned how to SCUBA dive and obtained my open water SSI certification. The room we stayed in was one of the more expensive rooms and my only complaint was that it could have been cleaner. We had big lizards that lived in the roof...

I spent 1 week at this resort and I thought it was a very nice place. The rooms were comfortable. They included Shower, small refrigerator (Stocked with cold soft drinks and beer), TV with remote, and air conditioner. Just a walk down the path and you are at the beach. They have their own restaurant on the beach and the...

This is a lovely friendly resort where all the staff are very attentive. The full board is amazing but if you don't have a humongous appetite then I would advise only going half board! All the food was amazing and very generous portions. The Dive Society is well run with really helpful staff. Nothing was too much of a problem...

I have allready stayed here 4 times. My last time in 2011. This time i was only here for diving. I stayed at Thalatta Resort. (check my trip report). But that was a mistake.

We stayed there one week in a standard room mostly for diving. The resort is well managed and maintained,(bar, garden and pool really lovely and clean) many different types of room, the staff is very friendly and the restaurant was good even if they have little vegetarian choices. The breakfast is awesome. It's a very good place to stay, but...

We stayed here for a week after visiting earlier for a meal. The cheaper rooms are small but adequate and probably cool in the hot season.

Completely agree with some reviews here: - not really clean - unprofessional staff - old rooms - expensive accomodation (for what you get) and expensive dives - small pool - bad food - bad beach (ok, you won't find anything amazing in Dgte) ...and unfriendly and arrogant Swiss german owners
