We pre-ordered six nights in a double room with transportation from Tacloban in April. We payed in advance via Western Union (I never did this before and will NEVER do it again!) and... No one came to the airport to fetch us up! Same story like further down here. The owner, Yvonne Ho, says she is in hospital in cebu.... More

We have read all this nice lines here and decide to book by Michaels Resort to have a good time there. But it seams, the nice time is gone there already. The hotel was all alone and empty, as we arrive. But from the neighboars, a pilippino guy come to open and give us a key for the room. He... More

Michael's could easily be a safe recommendation, but I am afraid I can't do that, as the mattress was terrible. I don't know if it is worn out or just cheap, it feels like you sleep on the wood, and makes your relaxation factor diminish. Besides this unfortunately key fact, sitting outside in the garden and looking at the bay... More

Based on internet recommendations for dive oriented accommodations in Padre Burgos, my girlfriend and I made reservations over the internet the day before our expected arrival. Both the web service (Agonda) and Michael's acknowledged the reservation, albeit automatically. In retrospect, I screwed up at this point and did not phone for conformation. Result was, after a long day of travel... More

Me and my friend stayed there for about 4 nights. It's a very beautiful place with a nice beach in front of your room and very clean. But the best of it are Ivonne and Mario. We didn't feel like guests we felled like family! They took care of everything for us and helped us with diving arrangement Mario even... More

A couple of friends and I stayed for a night at this quaint bed & breakfast as we were passing through the bucolic towns of southern Leyte. They currently don't have any dive-related services even though their name suggests that they do. But Yvonne, our very charismatic host, can refer you to nearby dive centers in Padre Burgos and/or outrigger... More

I'm not exaggerating when I say that Yvonne and her crew are the best guest house operators I have met. They truly made us feel at home. They treated us like real guests rather than just customers and did everything to make us happy and comfortable. During our stay I came down with something and spent days sick in bed.... More

Sometimes you find a place that you find very difficult to put into words, Michael's Resort and Dive is one of those. Nevertheless I will try to explain why we would recommend this place to anyone and everyone we meet. The resort is beautiful, native style huts right on the beach with a stunning view that are incredibly comfortable, spacious... More
