Okay so it's not absolutely the worst place on earth but it lacks a lot... 1. The food is not great nor even ok to be honest. A veggie burger consists of letuce, tomatoe and cheese on a roll and a regualar hamburger consists of some spam on a roll. 2.loads of Mosquitos so be prepared to be eaten alive.... More

We stayed in one of the rooms that were upstairs from the beach and resto/bar. ALOT of stairs. The stairs weren't the problem though. It was the room, and the menu where many things were "not available sir" The room was basic and simple. So simple you won't find a chair to sit on in it. The bathroom was without... More

Very modest accommodations. And a limited menu. But the great beach and helpful staff more than makes up for it! For an area with very erratic mobile signal (or none at all), the resort has free wi-fi to give you the chance to communicate back home. Unless you don't want to, of course. And they have a generator. Electricity is... More

We stayed for three nights and had a wonderful time. The rooms are pretty basic and average but very reasonable and we spent most of our time down by the beach. The beach is lovely, and the restaurant right on the beach is great, the food was very good and good prices. There is good wifi by the restaurant, we... More

I have read the mixed reviews about Kiwi Dive Resort, and here is mine. I never meet Bruce the owner so I do not have a clue what he is like, but I found him very professional in replying to my emails. I read bungalow 2 was a good choice as it was down stairs and cheaper than bungalow 1... More

I've read several reviews regarding this resort, both negative and positive. Nevertheless, I tried availing of their diving services. I even emailed (I believe thrice) and thought there wouldn't be a problem. Much to my disappointment, I didn't get the service I was hoping to get. Based on my experience, I'd say the staff is good but the owner (who... More

I had decided to book a hut for three nights based on the reviews here - the owner required full payment, so I ponied up about 2000PHP on paypal to reserve the room. Unfortunately, once I arrived, I decided that I hated the room - it was dark, the lightbulb was a joke, and I couldn't even open my windows... More

Positives: Kitchen and food is okay, staff are very friendly and the place is cheap. Negatives: The room I stayed in was awful. I have backpacked a lot and have come across some shabby rooms before and this was right up there. Make shift bed with a wafer thin mattress. I had to lay two mattresses on top of each... More
