“Amazing place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

If you want normal service, then choose this hotel. There is a conditioner and refrigerator in the room. There was no problems with the facilities. Friendly staff. We were completely surprised that the towels are included in the room rate. There are 3 offers to chose the breakfast. It looks like the owners of this hotel know how to provide standard service for the customers. There are plenty of restaurants all around. Don't be lazy and try the sea food on Talipapa market. It lies just 10 minutes walking from the hotel. I do really advise this hotel to everybody, especially if you chose Boracay for diving. There are many ways for diving. Enjoy it!!!

Room Tip: If you travel as a group of friends, the hotel has offer family room called Barracuda (4 persons max...

My son and I stayed at DiveGurus Boracay Beach Resort for 6 nights while he undertook his Open Water certification. The rooms are simple but clean and well maintained with air-conditioning and roof safe's for your valuables. The staff are really great and the place has a welcoming family vibe.
Great dive team as well. Recommend to anyone looking to enjoy a more affordable destination at the quieter end of the beach.

During our stay at Boracay we went to the Dive Gurus because our hotel "Greenyard Inn" have an collaboration with them. I have already the "Open water cert" But Roxana took the open water certificate at the Dive Gurus. The Instructors (Christopher Harvey, Rainier Jon Dela Cerna, Timothy Baxter and Jojo Arboleda) they helped her to feel comfortable and really taught her well. Everybody at the Dive gurus are really professional and loves their work. Dive Gurus can also provide with nice rooms, and they have great food at the place with lovely staff that always carries a smile. If you go to Boracay and would like to get the best diving experience, go to the Dive Gurus. Best Regards Malik and Roxana

Dive Gurus was recommended to me by friends and it was the perfect choice of a dive school. Friendly staff, excellent dive instructors and good equipment not to mention the open invite to "sunset beers". Special thanks to Chris for making my dives unforgettable.

Was referred here by the staff of the nearby resort I was staying in. From the first contact, was very impressed by the hospitality of the people in Dive Gurus. Unlike in many, more industrial-type of dive shops, had the sense that they - Chris and Rainier & co. had the attitude of doing their best to make my diving dreams come true - not just offering "the standard packages".

Small things make a big difference: free coffee before and after the dives, towels provided etc. And the service attitude: when asked if I can dive a specific site the next morning even if it was not in the regular schedule, the answer was always "yes". Guess I was 'lucky' since the high season was not on yet but still, a great five star experience. Felt like a king, did not even have to care about the gear at all other than getting myself and the weight belt in and out the boat. Their boats were never stuffed full of divers which is something I value highly.

For all the 5 fun dives I did, I cannot remember (or even imagine) a more pleasant diving experience than the ones I had. Recommend without hesitation.

Visited Boracay late november and booked my friend and I into 'Discover scuba". Visibility is great and aquatic life is rich. I enjoyed myself so much that I decided to sign up for the Open Water Course. Chris is very warm and friendly and was willing to take me in as a student despite only having 1 in the group. instructor: student ratio of 1:1! I enjoyed my dives and am looking forward to more underwater adventures. The rest of the staff is very helpful as well. Always ready with smiles and willingness to meet our every need. Thank you Dive Gurus.

We dived with Dive Gurus in mid November 2013 and I was very impressed by the dive shop. I would recommend it. The price for diving is set across all the dive shops, so pick your dive shop based on quality and staff. The dive shop is a smaller set up with very good ratios of DM and Instructors to students/fun divers. The equipment is good and well serviced.

A number of the other dive shops on the island have a "factory" type feel to them. Loading up boats with heaps of divers and churning through certifications. Dive Guru had some nice small touches; free tea and coffee and being offered a fresh towel after a dive.

I've dived all around Asia and I'm a Dive Master myself and I was impressed by the operation.
