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

My wife and I spent about a week in liquid from 03/27/15-04/03/15. We both took our AOW certification with Michelle and Stef (who were both very good and knowledgeable). My wife is not a strong diver so we had to tell the instructors and dive masters ( shout out to ROCKY, ALLAN AND JUN) that she might need some more... More

Hi Moki, Thank you for the very nice review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you thought our dive guides/instructors are doing a great job.

I stayed here for almost 3 weeks whilst completing my Staff Instructor course and I have to say there was not a single thing I can say I didn't enjoy (except leaving). Everything is exceptionally well run in terms of organisation, friendliness and the atmosphere really suits the whole experience and what Liquid has to offer. I stayed in the... More

Of our two weeks in the Philippines, our five days at Liquid Dumaguete stood out above the rest! First things first, Liquid is a budget dive resort: there is no A/C (fans are installed), the hot water is hot spring water (mineral rich), the dive boat is a typical local style home built craft, the base price is rooms only...
