The resort is right st the shore; you can do shore diving, but unlikely as there r lots of stones and wavy usually. Food is good, but for 3-4 days only, not too variable. There r some other resorts around, but hard to gethere by road or shore. Mainly u will stay in the resort, around the pool or bar... More

I emailed Ronnie Corpuz at his email address given on their website to make a booking for 3 PAX over 2 consecutive weekends. After waiting for 6 days for a reply in vain I tried to phone the resort on the phone number of their website. Operator told me the phone number was incorrect. So I emailed again asking for... More

We stayed 4 nights here on a diving package. We were collected on time at the airport and traveled in a comfortable car to the resort, around 2 hrs drive. On arrival we were shown to our room which was a long climb up to the top floor. The room was tiny and aircon was noisy and old. We barely... More

We have stayed here many times over the past few years and have always had a great visit. The staff is very friendly and helpful and Bong, the manager, does a great and personable job. Staff turnover seems very slight and now when we visit it's almost like seeing family again. A year or so ago they remodeled the dining... More

This is my first time to dive in Philippines. My dive club chose Aqua Venture. This is a very good place for diving, especially our dive guide - Allen - who can always find things for us, even though the place we thought there was not anything to find. Night dive is another wonderful dive during the trip. All in... More

My cousin who lives in the Philippines took me to Aquaventure to do some diving. We drove from Manila and arrived around 11 AM. The resort was still able to accomodate our needs and we got into the water right away. We did a total of 3 dives. As a PADI Divemaster, I was able to observe the resort staff... More

You should meet Steven, better known as T-bone, one of the best among the fantastic staff at the resort. I celebrate my birhday at the resort every year with my diver friends and each time we have a great time, diving, dining and partying. Make your reservation for your group before you come.If you start early you can do two... More

I stayed mid week at the aquaVenture Reef Club and I am pretty sure I was the only one there. However, the place fills up on the weekends with divers from Manila; I noted the staff activity increased Friday afternoon for the new arrivals. The breakfast came with the room and it could easily feed three people. I had to... More

In eight days diving from Aquaventure Reef Club, we found a lot of pluses and a few big minuses. Plus: Service was friendly and helpful, especially from the dining and bar staff. The dive setup area is spacious and comfortable, with ample rinse and storage facilities (we used an outside dive master and boat, so no review here of ARC's... More

Aquaventure is an Excellent Scuba diver's resort, but not necessarily the best choice if you are a non diver. Conveniently located 2.5 hours away (drive) from Manila. I have been visiting this resort for years now, and they have constantly tried to improve their resort to keep up with the new modern resorts along Alinao beach. They have new beach... More
