Me and buddy joined Big Apple dive center for one day trip to Verde island because they were recommended as guys who organize diving at Verde at cheap price including boat, 2 dives and lunch.

Went there recently for a short break and I would go there again. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. After I have heard that they have a 24/7 Restaurant at the beachfront I was a little bit sceptical about the noise factor, but the rooms are in the backyard and you get not bothered at... More

Last month I booked a room for our arrival on the 26th / Christmas for a stay of 8 days. As always,... More

One of us has stayed at your resort before and it looks like your resort would be perfect for... More

We had booked this place for about 2 weeks, ended staying one night and leaving the next morning. The place is a total disgrace. Our first room smelt of urine and the bathroom ceiling and half of it had fallen off... We asked for another room and in the shower was a bucket for you... No water from the shower... More

For single men this is a great place for you to meet the locals and have some fun......... if you are travelling as part of a couple or family then this is not the place for you. Our room was 500 pesos a night and it was definitely a case of you got what you paid for - a dingy... More

Who: This places is great for single men (or those who want to have fun in the evening) coming to SCUBA dive. If you are a loving couple or family, this place is not for you.

Just spent 12 days staying and diving out of Big Apple Dive, Sabang, I paid for budget accomodation and the place I stayed in was good. The staff were very helpful and quickly sorted out any issue.
