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

From its accomodation, food and to their hospitality was exeptional! Im talking about personal service. They would even come where you are.we were laying on those outdoor beds overlooking the...

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...

I can highly recommend this dive resort! I stayed here in early September 2014 (low season) for 5 nights and I was totaly satiesfied. Compared with other of the many dive resorts around, the room and dive fares are very reasonable here. During low season and weekday the room rates are even more attractive. If you want to safe money... More

I have been visiting them since 2004. Excellent and friendly staff (Restautrant and Dive Shop). Food is great and rates are competetive. The changing rooms for day trippers are clean. This is our first choice whenever we do day trips in Anilao. I just wish they renovate their rooms.

We booked three nights at Aquaventure, but left after only 8 hours almost entirely because of the rooms we were offered. Our initial room was dank and smelled like it had seen its best days in the 1970's, and seemed like it hadn't been updated since then. It was musty, and the wall air conditioning unit made a lot of... More

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
