I wanted to take a quick trip out of Manila diving and would have normally gone across the water to Puerto Gallera but didn't want to take the chance that weather would turn bad (in July). On a recommendation I went to this place. I was one of 5 guests in the entire resort and I was there for just... More

We went for a two night stay Saturday- Monday, and had a great time. The suites are clean, and comfortable, and they have a view of the ocean. The snorkeling tours & diving boat trips were fun and worth the visit. Also, if it's your first time, this is a good place to get your diving certification. The pool is... More

I had always wanted to go to Acacia Dive Resort in Anilao. Had heard good things. The dive master was good and that experience was nice. I was disappointed in the quality and cleanliness of the resort and thought a day trip fee of Php 1500 was over priced for basically a buffet lunch. The rest rooms and changing rooms... More

I booked here for a couple of nights. There were only two rooms occupied out of the whole resort, mine and a couple of fellow divers. So, we had the whole place to ourselves. The food was fine, and made to order. Since the place was under some small construction, there were lots of lurking workers around which made us... More

WARNING: Google Maps is wrong about this resort's location. Google Maps said that it was beside Anilao Discovery Bay and Pier Uno but it's not! I think the more accurate location in Goggle Maps is the one that says "Acacia". So just follow the road and look for the sign in the right. It is before Eagle Point Resort (which... More

My 13 year old son and I stayed here for a diving adventure. Our reservations were made by our dive guide that we hired for our time in Anilao. We checked in with no problems. Room was ready for us on arrival. The room was nice and clean. Lots of room for all our luggage. We ate at the restaurant... More

The transfers from the airport were excellent. The accommodation was described as deluxe. Thank goodness we didn't book the basic! I would expect a deluxe room to have adequate storage space. We had to drag a wooden frame that comprised a hanging rail (with 3 coat hangers), with two shelves below from the bathroom to the main room to give... More

I stayed here for the best part of a week. Firstly, I mst express my gratitude for the efforts their kitchen made in meeting my group's dietary requirements. Most of the meals clearly demonstrated a willingness to help, including dairy and egg free desserts! The rooms though were a little disappointing, flimsy pillows, thin walls, no wifi. The diving activities... More

Visiting this Dive Resort for the first time. The hotel cost is based on full board, breakfast lunch and dinner is included. This is not a 5⭐️ hotel but mare like a guest house as it is a family run business. The rooms are basic clean and comfortable I opted for a deluxe room. The food is local but also... More

Bottom Line Up Front: If you're seeking out the unique critters of Anilao and would like to be pampered in the process... this is your place - seriously! The facilities here include areas to accommodate even the most avid u/w photographers. The house banca boat 'Chloe' is kept in top condition to navigate challenging conditions if you're seeking out dive... More
