The staff was quick to help us make arrangements for a scuba diving excursion the next morning. All of the staff was very polite. Very clean restaurant, pool and surroundings, room. The food at the restaurant was delicious! The dive shop is great. The dive masters are knowledgeable and professional. The dive sites are the best I have ever been to. The prices are very reasonable. I look forward to visiting again.

The place is very homey.
Filled with Accommodating Staff and generous people.
The Food and Drinks are very good and fresh
The dive instructors are PADI certified and very helpful. They won't allow you to dive without assuring that you accomplished the guidelines set by PADI. Really really great place. Not too far from the diving spots.

Rooms are clean and the view is beautiful. Even just staying in the hotel is a bliss.

Thanks martinnico2 for your excellent review! We practice Safety all the time in our operations especially in diving so every dive will be much more comfortable and enjoyable to all of our guest. And since our dive shop is just less than 5 min away from the nearest dive site so all our guest will enjoy more bottom time than travelling on boat.

This is a great hotel for this area. The location is ideal. It is steps away from transportation (trikes,bikes) and a quick walk to the pier and all the dive shops and restaurants. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was ok. The room is basic but clean and the mini bar is well stocked and inexpensive. The room key is a real 'key' on a large chain that you leave at the bar on your way out. I booked a penthouse room which I now regret as it is just a regular room with a larger deck. The drawback is the four flights of stairs.

Thank you John B for your great review we appreciate your feedback. Mermaid is located in the center of Sabang which is just 2 blocks away from our Dive Shop (Mermaid Divers) and some restaurant, bars, convenience store, and money changing shop. Most of our room are basic (Superior Deluxe) but as you said it is cleaned and well stocked, but we also have a larger rooms with private jacuzzi and bathtub with hot/cold running water like the Royal Family Suite and the Pool Suite. And our Penthouse which you stayed have almost same size as our Superior deluxe but the difference is that it has its own private balcony and a outdoor jacuzzi and yes it is on the top most level that is why it has a view of Sabang bay but it has a more stairs. Let us know next time you are visiting us and we will give you a range of choices for our available rooms. Just book with us directly so you can have your options. Thank you very much for your review and we are looking forward on your next visit.

Pros:
1. Location of hotel was in the center of town, 2 minutes walk from everything (docks, trike stand, restaurants beach and bars) Perfect. However hotel itself was quiet and ideal.
2. Stayed in a pool view suite, which was outstanding. Very large room, two large clean double beds, great TV, lockbox, fridge and seating area.
3. Bathroom is large modern and clean, had a big jacuzzi type bath shower which has to be seen to be believed, beautiful.
4. Staff were friendly and accommodating, bravo to them.
5. Pool and bar area both very nice.

Cons:
1. WiFi didn't work in our room and phone signal was poor in this area.
Overall found it difficult to find any problems with this hotel, it was outstanding in all aspects. Well done.

Overall: The best hotel I have stayed in throughout a long trip, Would stay again in an instant and recommend to anyone visiting Sabang.

Hi simonmoto,

First of all we would like to say Thank you on your detailed review of Mermaid Resort. We are very pleased of your review but also we will not stop from there since we still have minor issues like the internet (wifi signal). Being honest with you that time you are in the resort there are at least 2 rooms that has problem reaching a good signal inside the room but that we are already addressed by adding additional access points to the spot/location that have a weak wifi signal. At the moment we can say that the wifi signal now in ALL rooms have a minimum of 2 to 3 bars and even in some of the room inside the bathroom have wifi signal. We also test it not only in 1 device but in multiple devices so we know where to place the additional access points to cover the blind spots. Again Thank you very much and we are looking on your next visit with us.

- The Mermaid Resort Team

A nice hotel but lacking in email communication skills. 2 emails sent and 2 replies received but neither answered my questions so we decided to book via an online booking agency. On checking in we received the horrible greeting of “Ohh you booked by Agoda so you are not entitled to a free breakfast, we can’t compete with their prices”, it was not the greeting we were expecting. I had a few minor problems in my room and they were dealt with very quickly however in saying that the superior room was very small with a nice large balcony. A double bed, table and fridge took up 70% of area only leaving one side of the bed easily accessible but with a wardrobe squeezed in between wall and bed with the result of no bedside table but strategically placed so you have something to beat your head against while sleeping, the other side I had to slide past to get into bed. Not long before noticing there is no light switches near the bed, you must switch the light off which is on the other side of the room and maneuver past the narrow passage back to bed and vice versa getting up, I could envisage a few skinned shins in the past. The room maids were excellent and the place was cleaned everyday and linens replaced, pity about the little sachets of hair shampoo and the lowly miniature white bar of soap they provide, something you would expect in a backpackers room. Be warned that although the safe works perfectly it is wall mounted above the only bedside table and protrudes from the wall so if you bend over to get something off the table it is right above your head if you stand up. Noise is a slight problem especially on the balcony but not so bad in the room as the hotel is right beside the main access road into the town, I cannot comment on the penthouse views but everything else looks inward from the balconies therefore nothing to get excited about. The bathroom is average sized and the shower has mixing taps and worked well, no variation in temperature. The extractor fan works very well and it should with the noise it makes! A well kept hotel and very clean throughout. Wi-Fi is quite good.
