Liquid Dumaguete is an all-in-one place to stay for diving in the Dumaguete/Dauin area. Being located between the Bacong and Dauin boundary, it remains close to Dumaguete City but not far from the marine reserves of Dauin. It has rustic beach-front cottages. We stayed 5 days and took 2 dives at Bulak and Masaplod Norte. The 2nd level laid-back resto... More

12 of us from India, all Scuba divers, had a week long dive trip to this amazing place between 25.05.15 and 30.05.15. The diving was really an amazing experience. The resort is right on the beach, superb, very convenient . Resort Staff and dive guides are amazingly well behaved, helpful. Dive equipment were quite good. None of us had any... More

I was lucky to stay here for one fabulous week. My cottage was # 8 & had a magnificent unblocked view of the ocean. In my free time I sat on my porch & just let all my cares float out over the sea. I admit I had been concerned about no AC but I actually had to use a... More

Excellent service! Starting from the first email response to all the staff in every department... The cottages are just right - bamboo and nipa for local flavour with the comforts of nice bed, fan, lighting, good size bathroom, outdoor sitting area, and... hangers :-) , and simple yet effective decor. The food - A tasty mix of local and international... More

Friendly staff (from the locals to the foreign dive instructors). This is my first dive and my instructor (Steph - thank you) made sure everything goes well. Really great service; no waiting time. My only regret is not checking in here as the cottages and surroundings seemed conducive for relaxing and doing nothing. Quite far (if you walk) from the... More

Everything at Liquid was great from start to finish and really very comfortable and reasonably priced. We stayed 11 days and felt completely at home on day 1. The setting is beautiful, right on the coast in a lovely garden with cute fan bungalows, nice pool and very organised dive centre. The staff bent over backwards to help us during... More

I decided to travel to liquid dumaguete after reading positive reviews from Google, not just Tripadvisor. I got in contact about doing a padi open water course. Zoe responded very quickly and was thorough in confirming details and booking since I provided dates that did not correspond with a calendar. Zoe was quick to answer any queries and helped me...

Liquid was easily our favorite place to stay out of our many trips to South East Asia. The resort itself is gorgeous. The grounds are landscaped beautifully, and the architecture and design of the cottages and public areas were the best in their style that we have seen, ever. The workmanship is top notch, down to every last detail including... More
