Just completed open water cert with the Blue Ribbon team, great overall experience. Location is perfect, set back from bustle of main strip, but only a stroll away. The beach itself is not a sand beach, but the access to dive spots is awesome. Awesome staff, both kitchen and divemasters. Food is great, service is even better. Instructors show a... More

Resort: It's located on Small Laguna, away from the sleazy and dirty Sabang. A better beach option would be Big Laguna, which is about 5-7 mins walk. Rooms are basic and tired-looking, needs a major update. AC is very loud and tab water is from the well (I was told), which makes it salty and hard. However, everything is working... More

The Blue Ribbon Dive Resort is a small hotel on Small Lalaguna beach with a dive shop as an integral part of it. It is only 10 minutes from the centre of Sabang. The town isn't cute in any way, it is like a concrete shanty town. But the water front has lots of beach bars overlooking the bay. The... More

There are good dive resorts and then there are a cut above the rest. Blue Ribbon Dive Resort is a cut above the rest. From the moment I entered the resort I was made to feel like part of their family. And that is exactly what it is - an extended family made up of foreigners and locals - a... More

I have been to Blue Ribbon twice on separate occasions. I love their Chicken Cordon Bleu! Their bungalows were huge! There is also a deep pool for practicing/diving certifications. Diving was pretty good with the local divemasters.

This resort has pretty much everything you need for a diving holiday. Basic but functional rooms, normal to the Philippines with fridge and safe provided. Dive shop within the resort has knowledgeable staff, a flexible itinerary and good equipment. We loved the fact that the staff were there with free tea or coffee as you arrive back after each dive.... More
