First off, for those who love to lay on the beach, on soft, white and fine sand, the Boracay "type" of people who wants to party and show off their bikinis and perfect bodies while perpetually posing for selfies, this resort is not for you, so move on to another location. I stayed there overnight with the family. We arrived... More

Our family stayed at Dive Solana for 2 days. My husband and I are not divers but for the youngsters they had a blast going on a very affordable one on one introductory dive. They spent most of the time snorkeling, swimming and sunbathing on the floating docks conveniently located a little way off. My husband also loved learning to... More

It was my first time in the Philippines and I was lucky enough to stumble across Dive Solana. I am not a diver but I heard from others at the resort that this is one one of the best dive spots in the world. I only stayed for two days but there is no doubt I will be going back.... More

My sisters and I are avid divers and we found this place perfect for a quiet weekend family get-away last April 19-22, 2013. The rates are a bit pricey compared to other resorts but they are well worth the price if you just want some peace and quiet with weekend diving (Anilao gets packed with divers on most summer weekends!)....

This was our first trip to the Philippines and we were so happy that we stayed at this resort. It is perfectly set up for divers and especially those who are photographers. Not only is the diving relatively easy with short boat rides, shallow depths, and great dive masters who know when and where the current is high, there is... More

The price of the room is per head per night, quiet pricey. But the servings of food is overflowing. (lunch-lunch) which is why the price of the room/head is pricey. Because that includes your BUFFET meals. And they must be paying good enough salary to their chef! He offers the best food!!! at all times. - 5/5 on FOOD The... More

Stayed for 3 days with 2 of my siblings, mother, and a 2.5-year-old toddler. The staff was attentive, patient and accommodating with all our requests. Food is worth noting; generous and delicious. It was my second time there and it was an even better experience than the first.
