Ive been to this place for a day dive and for a weekend dive. You would have to go up and down steep stairs especially if your room is on the upper floor. Staff are fairly friendly. Food could be better. House reef is great: Twin Rocks. What I dislike about this place is it's difficult to get too, lots... More

During a tour through the Batangas Region we stayed for the night and half a day at the resort. The rooms were clean and large, but don't expect amenities like a television. WiFI is available, but is spotty in the rooms -- reception is best in the eating areas. While we were at the resort all food was served buffet... More

Located down Anilao peninsula wife and we spent an excellent relaxation week. Our (green) room was freshly renovated; does not exactly come with a view or a balcony, but was sparkling clean with great bathroom attached. Meals are on the terrace : our standard table was just facing the sea; food was varied and in quantities (systematically soup, meat, vegetable,... More

As many have said already, this property is very basic. Rooms are quite old, and with very simple furnishings. Think foam mattresses, etc. At the time of this trip it was just after a typhoon, so some of the amenities were not working (wifi, hot water). They can't be faulted for this, and did have a generator all night for... More

Planet Dive has become my go-to dive resort since I moved to Manila. Having tried several competitors previously PD has earned my repeat business due to: 1. it's location near the better dive sites, secret bay, secret garden and the reefs of Sombrero island 2. a good house reef (which you can dive for free after 2 boat dives) 3....

I recently made a weekend trip to Planet Dive with my two sons, purely for diving. We've been in Anilao before, but in other resort. I guess it is needless to say, that Anilao is one of the premium spots for diving. 30+ sites within striking distance of banga gives you plenty to choose from, and reason to come back.... More

Spent 3 days/2 nights here and my entire stay was very pleasant. The buffet approach when it comes to the meals is a very nice touch especially for divers who spends the entire day going in and out of the water. The resort staff are very nice and accommodating. Rooms are clean and spacious. As for the SCUBA center, it... More

We've been to a few resorts in Anilao, Mabini but Planet Dive is where we keep coming back every Lenten season. For one, it houses one of the best marine protected reefs in the country that guests from nearby resorts hire boats to see the Twin Rocks, which is right in front of Planet Dive. Buffet seafood is great. Nothing... More
