Stayed here for 3days 2nights. As I just entered the laid back and cozy style of the reception, I'm sold already. Grace the receptionist is very friendly and helpful. She have all the answers on my inquiries and requests. Initially I have a room at the back of the hotel but I asked if there is beach front and they... More

Because the hotel was wonderful, but the diving was terrible. So...I put it at three stars. First off, the diving...I did two dives at Aqua Ventures. And because I was diving alone, I had to foot the bill for everything: the dive master, the boat, my gear, and my tanks (I've dove all over the Philippines, never been to a... More

My wife and I have been twice at Aquaventure in 2014 (April and November). We stayed 14 days each time and I would return again and again. The rooms are clean but basic (no frills) and the place is very quiet at night. The food is excellent the staff is super friendly, always trying to please you.The diving is mainly... More

Super chill place right on the beach (not that the beach is sandy and good). If you are diver then a good spot to be in. Very easy and quick access to all the Anilao sites. Resort is built funky with rooms tucked in all corners, giving you a sense of solitude.

I enjoyed 9 great dives at Aqua Venture in late May. This place is all about diving. If you want real peace and quiet ,try to stay on a weekday. On the weekends the atmosphere ramps up with lots of weekend traffic from Manila. I was diving solo , so I had a boat and dive guide to myself. All... More

this is as close as you can get to a live aboard diving experience without being on a boat. The resort caters exclusively for divers and their support crew taking care of absolutely everything so you only have to worry about getting the water and enjoying your dives then relaxing completely when you are ashore. The staff take care of... More

Our first time at Aquaventure was a father - son bonding session. It is a small resort compared to some along the coast there. Accommodation is basic, food is adequate, staff are great. The dive shop and the boat crews are excellent; they couldn't be more helpful. There was some crazy Frenchman with a dry suit and lots of exotic... More

Very good resort, staff was nice, and equipment was in good shape. The food was good and the dive package are very competitive. However, even if my partner didn't dive, she got charged the dive package all the same, which doesn't make sense I think. This could be the only reason why we wouldn't go back as we don't see...
