Did not stay at blue ribbon as I was traveling with my family and blue ribbon only has small budget rooms but the rooms are also quite good for the cheap price. However we did dive with blue ribbon. We had breakfast at blue ribbon every morning because the good is that great! It's got everything from American breakfasts, cereals,... More

Hotel by the ocean. Unbelievably great scuba diving. They made Verde island trip easy! If you want that. We saw schools of barracuda. Schools of tuna pretty cool. Currents were strong visibility was great. Lots of nudibrachs. This place is Total experience. I love to scuba dive. They have it all.

Stayed 4 nights at Blue Ribbon and thought it was quite well run. Accommodations are basic but clean--all I needed actually for a diving holiday. Cottage was charming. The staff at the reception were helpful, friendly and accommodating. Shirly in particular responses quickly to all my email queries. I found the restaurant staff to be mostly funny--they seemed concerned I... More

Stayed here for scuba diving. The resort itself looks very dated compared to its neighbors (Think squatters house next to a skyscraper). Im filipino, so if you are too, expect to be treated 3rd tier not in this resort but all of sabang. Except for dive masters jeff and jun and d bartender, the staff including the dive instructors are... More

Sabang is a major diving destination with (literally) dozens of dive shops. With a dive shop every 10 meters, choosing between them can be difficult. I asked a long-time Sabang expat to give me a short list of dive shops to consider. After walking around to each of them and talking to the divemasters, I chose Blue Ribbon. The first... More

Accommodation is basic but fine but poetic license to the grounds that are portrayed in the pictures. A small pool and pokey garden at best. Food was alright, nothing great. Dive shop less than impressive, boat invariably left very late and only seemed to go to nearby sites but maybe I was unlucky there. I am always scepticle when a... More

My girlfriend and I traveled to the Philippines for the first time recently from Los Angeles and stayed at this resort. I am kind of in the middle between 2-3 rating because there was such a separation between the resort experience and the dive service. I usually write very positive reviews but there was issues that need to be resolved... More
