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

The resort is touted to be the best in Anilao - my dive guide mentioned it was one of the most luxurious resorts in the area. At first impression I would agree. The grounds are nice, the staff extremely friendly, and the food both good and plentiful. The rooms are small, basic, but adequate. The AC works! My room was... More

We stayed here for a weekend as part of our dive certification with Manila Dive Academy. The rooms are basic but clean. There was plenty of bottled water provided and the A/C is good. The beds and linen were clean and comfy. The setting is gorgeous, with an amazing view of the sunset. You just need to walk out into... More

I live in Manila and Mabini, or Anilao, as people call the area, is practically my house reef. I usually do day trip from Manila, practically every week end during diving season. Last week end, I went for a week end with a friend who used to live here. We stayed at Acacia as other friends were there for the... More

Spent a week there recently whilst on course. Nice clean rooms, a good variety of food, really excellent service by all the staff there. The Dive Centre is well run and organized, very spacious and lots of rinse tanks and drying areas for the gear. I didnt rent gear but the tanks were in good condition and they were meticulous...
