We had a wonderful stay in Sea Dream on July 16th to 21st 2017. The staff are friendly and made our stay like 'home from home'. The choice of food is excellent, especially the 'special menu' board and portion and presentation is exceptional.
The deluxe room is very spacious and although, it is showing signs of cosmetic repairs, the traditional and modern interior design is reflective through the resort.
During our stay the ambience of the resort was tranquil and peaceful as there were a only a few guest. The location is about half an hour from Dumaguete and they offer drop off or pick up services for a fee. We decided to use different types of transportation during our stay from local jeepney or yellow buses (this can flag down by the main road, a few minutes from the resort gate entrance) 10 pesos per person to Dumaguete or hired a bike/moped for a day or per hour. You can request a moped/bike tour guide which is a great way to familiarise with local road and traffic and see other villages.
There are different tours offers, however, the tour prices are base on how many people signed up. The whale sharks watching was our highlight of the stay. Although, it's a sardine of tourists waiting to swim with the whale shark, it is 'once in a lifetime' opportunity to be with these gentle sea giant.
The marine sanctuary is outside the resort, the beach is typical of Dumaguete coastline. Its rocky and volcanic sands.
The wifi signal is excellent and the front desk are always willing to help with any travel advice or offer local knowledge.
