Rejuvenating! I've been in this place last holiday and all the time I spent here was super worth my time. The beauty and the serenity of nature was an absolute reminder of how lucky we are as Filipinos. Me and my friend, experienced the wonder of the ocean, through snorkeling and kayaking. I felt absolute freedom and thrill. Aside from... More

My second trip to Scandi in 2014. While not a 4 or 5 star property, the rooms are comfortable and a great value. What makes this place worthy of an excellent rating is the staff and the Dive Team, and the close proximity to dive sites that boast the best coral reef I have seen anywhere. Owned by an American...

I stayed here June because it got good reviews, and was one of the popular "budget" places. I did not dive, but the place looks great for divers. The price of the the basic rooms is reasonable, but I wanted a nice view of the ocean ( which was beautiful), but the price was very expensive for a room with... More

We are sorry to disappoint you on the price of our special waterfront 1 bedroom suite. Our waterfront rooms at our sister resort next door start at only 36 usd per night. Most are 62 usd per night, apparently these rooms we all occupied. Our standard room price is 52 usd per night for a poolside room. TripAdvisor designated us... More

I did 13 dives with Scandi in May 2013, I didn't do all the dives I wanted so I returned this May to try a few more. From the moment I walked into the hotel it was as if I had never been away, genuine friendliness and all matters relating to diver were treated in a professional manner. I dived... More

First solo dive trip to Puerto Galera (on recommendations from mates) and have previously done Bali, Coron, Sipadan etc. Absolutely gorgeous coral, probably the best unbroken unspoilt coral in the region in Verde Islands. The diving standard here is excellent, Conan is a very responsible, sociable (if understandly grumpy (for a very very short while) after a big night out)... More
