I really need a lot to rate a place as poor but to me, Genesis divers, especially the Guest House, deserves nothing more. I have not much to say when it comes to the diving part, although I've been surprised that my certification level was not checked. I wouldn't qualify their equipment as in good condition, far from that. Accommodation... More

We wanted a place along Alona Beach and tried this resort. We were after comfortable sized clean rooms and this resort provided such. For the price, I would say it was a great value. Even though there are a lot of cheaper small resorts along Alona, their rooms were new compared to the other resorts in the area. Cleaning of... More

I have dove with this dive center 2 years in a row. Staff is professional helpful and caring. Both Noel and Junior as my dive guides were top notch. Equipment rental was good. Worst part was leaving. They serve great food at night on the beach. Thai food. Worth a visit for both activities.

Stayed at the Hayahay, as far as Philippine hotels in outer provinces go its pretty good. I have stayed at hotels all over Philippines outer provinces and for the price range I think it's pretty good. I got a room with aircon and the aircon worked fine...only draw back was there was only a sheet in our room, no blanket.... More

I stayed for four nights with three friends. As the rooms only have a bed for two guests, we purchased a mattress for myself. At first, I was hesitant to share the same cost as my friends with a bed, but the mattress was the same one my friends had, but just smaller. They even made the bed, gave me... More

My fiancee and I stayed here for two nights and couldn't ask for a better weekend. Knowing that our flight was going to arrive to Tagbiliran at 9:30am on a Saturday I emailed the hotel a few days prior asking what time we can check in. Within 3 hours I received an email back saying, "Check In time is usually... More

Very nice spacious clean comfortable rooms. Great people and service. Dive with Genisis divers and you get a great package deal. I have stayed here 3 times and will be back in December to celebrate New Years again.

I went on a dive trip with my girlfriends this June. Although we spent most of our time out at sea, we spent the remaining part of our afternoon and evening at the resort and at the various restaurants along the beach.
