I decided to get to Polaris on my own from the Tagbilaran airport. First I took tricycle to local jeepney station (50 php 10 minutes), took jeepney all the way to Mocpoc (40 php, 2hrs) - it's a final stop right at the boat jetty so no worries about missing the stop. Then hop on the boat across the bay... More

Polaris is a small and comparatively unknown resort and I suspect that most people who go there wish to keep it that way. Think of 14-15 dive sites with pristine walls and sandy slopes and only a few divers from 2 dive companies, and an occasional live-a-board to clutter them up. Add warm year round diving (unless you are unlucky... More

The hotel is very quiet. Beautiful sea with snorkeling easy to do with children. Dive center is ok, we did beautiful macro dives! You can ask the staff to have somebody to take care of the children if needed. The only thing which is less good is the food: no local food (too bad), and the rest is quite expensive,... More

The company chose to stay here for our outing and it's really outdated. Good thing that is near the beach area. The staff are very friendly, the selection of food is not so many and the ambience is just okay. The rooms is spacious enough to accomodate 4-5 guests with a thin-stuffed bed which is not so comfy to sleep... More

Pool, reasonable beach, friendly stuff, good rooms. all you'd expect in a resort of this price range. But... even though the italian pizza was pretty good (8/10 - lacking some central crunch on the base) the spicy seafood noodles were a joke. Pot noodles with few prawns and other stuff... Very disappointing.

It was more or less a last minute plan to have a break from work, so I decided that visiting Bohol to see the Chocolate Hills and the Tarsier Sanctuary and get in a bit of easy diving would be nice. Polaris Beach and Dive Resort suited my requirements perfectly. Getting there from Singapore was easy - a short 3... More

We spent a week in November at Polaris. I dove everyday with Jun Jun as my dive guide. He was excellent at finding all the amazing little critters that live in Cabiloa reefs. Dives were long, relaxed and full of amazing reef creatures. Not too many fish though. I also snorkeled right off the beach at Polaris...really great snorkeling. The... More

This resort is a brilliant place for a quiet getaway with friends or family. Cabins are clean and comfortable. There is nice pool with a shallow section for kids (and a lot of play equipment). The gardens are pleasant with a boat-shaped bar on the edge of the beach where the most spectacular sunsets can be absorbed while sipping on... More
