Stayed in the rooms furthest back, right in front of the pool. The rooms are spacious and we could have stayed in one to accommodate the three of us. The bathrooms have fairly new appliances (toilet, sink & water heater) that work well; the decor could use some attention (tiles are broken, missing). Heidi was helpful during the booking process...

We went here a couple times during our stay and really enjoyed the happy hour cocktails and the freshly roasted spicy peanuts they serve along with them! The drinks are well made and are served with a smile. The menu is quite large... and maybe thats why food quality is inconsistent.. some things are very good like the handmade burgers,... More

Not for people looking for a luxurious stay, but for people just looking for (1) a comfortable place at affordable prices, (2) a friendly staff, and (3) safe, nice, knowledgeable, and qualified dive instructors, Blue Ribbon definitely hits the spot. My dad and I went there to get our AOW Certification. Their website said we had to do it in... More

The hotel itself is well maintained, rooms are clean and spacious and staff really friendly and helpful. I really loved diving there. Nice dive sites and they do their best for divers. I couldn't keep up with an inexperienced group cause I was taking pictures so I had my personal dive guide all the way.

Me and 15 others visit this dive resort for 2 weeks. The staff are amazing, so helpful and just can't do enough for you. The hotel is very clean and well equipped. Normally on Holliday in 30 + degrees heat doing 3 dives a day, I would lose a little weight. However the food from the hotel was to good... More

I will try and keep this short and to the point. 1. The rooms are more than functional with aircon, fans, maid service every day including fresh linen and towels. The rooms have TV with loads of channels (but that's not why you are here), and the mini bar (fridge) is well stocked and most importantly not a rip off.... More

I was part of a group that stayed at the Blue Ribbon Dive Resort for one week in April 2015. My objective was to experience as much diving as possible in the six dive days that were set aside. This amounted to two day dives per day as well as three night dives (Total of 15). The diving was excellent... More

I was in Blue Ribbon twice (November 2012 and May 2015). It was to see, that the resort still keeps the same high standard, which each diver expects. - Who should go to Sabang? : recreational diver (there is a tech dive base in the area, but no any cave or deep ship wreck, so no meaning for a technical...

I chose this resort because of the comparatively high rate among those on the Sabang Beach, and also, to avoid the divers storm of other Chinese diving resorts. Frankly speaking, it's much better for staying and eating here. Diving is just so-so, but I still have some comments. (1) I arrived at noon. The reception desk was very friendly and... More
