Diving was great. Very good service and all the Acacia team are very helpful. It is a great resort to stay in, even if you are not a diver. But the food is TERRIBLE. I was diving with a group who are pure photographers divers. We have our expensive equipment with us, left at the camera station. Each morning at... More

I've already been to this resort three times before and each time had been a (very) favorable and welcome experience - I've been meaning to write up something here for quite a while. Acacia is one of the newer Anilao resorts that cater to an upscale crowd. Anilao diving, for very many years, had thrived on the rustic feel a... More

I find Acacia more expensive than other resorts in Mabini. However, the food and the efficiency of staff are also better than places that we have stayed. The dive shop was well-equipped with everything that we needed. We had a extra small diver and Acacia staff reserved the equipment for us and we didn't have issues with sizing, etc. After... More

Acacia manages to combine a well laid out, well run and cosy resort with a great dive operation and probably the best food in Anilao. The staff are fantastic from the moment you arrive to the time you leave. The house reef is average, but most of the main Anilao dive site are a short boat trip away while boat... More

A group of us stayed here in April, mainly for scuba diving. We stayed in 3 of their Ocean View Deluxe rooms and we fell in love with the rooms. The room was spacious, had two huge Queen beds with connecting balconies, table and chairs in the room as well as on the balcony and it also had a very... More

This place was terrible. The Acacia Beach Resort would be a better choice or others... I would not go there for diving again unless I were an older lady looking for snails Nudi etc even then there's better choices than Aniloa. Food was not only terrible.. I did not trust it. My son and I joked about the Acacia Diet.... More

We arrived at Acacia after checking out several other resorts in the area. The rooms are very very comfortable and clean, the Dive is arranged efficiently and competently. We did not eat a meal, other than breakfast, which was pretty good, and laid out in a charming dining /coffee / hangout area under...the giant Acacia tree. Tea and coffee are... More

First and foremost, this is a non-diver’s review. Here goes. We stayed here in May 25 and 26, 2013 for a quick weekend getaway to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We were a group of 10 (7 adults, 1 tween, 1 baby and 1 pet). Resorts tend to have a difficult time managing a huge group. However, Acacia’s staff was more... More

We stay at Acacia Dive Resort in Anilao from April 23 to April 29, 2013. During that time we dove 21 times, 2 shore dives at the house reef and 19 boat dives. The resort was very attentive to your need. The owner, Oliver Ang also had his hands on on everything. Good impression started at Manila Airport when the... More
