Overall I can say this was a fantastic choice for our resort/dive shop. My girlfriend and brother and I came here for a short trip over New Years Eve this year. We were mainly here for the diving, but all the staff - whether they be dive shop staff (thanks Arman and Edna!) or the friendly and helpful restaurant/bar staff... More

We spent 4 days at Scandi. The staff is very nice and the diving team top notch. The restaurant is open all day and the menu is quite diverse. The Starbucks frappacinos (not cheap!), fruit pancakes and sweet and sour chicken kept my kids happy...as did the pool table on the roof...but they couldn't get Wifi in the room, only... More

Stayed at Scandi for 12 nights. Nice quite location, short walk to the restaurant and bar action of Sabang. Very friendly hotel staff. Good sized room, that was cleaned daily. Also dove with the attached dive shop. Professional, yet fun and relaxed dive crew. Everyone there was great, but a special thanks to Arman, Rico and Conan.

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
