My boyfriend and I contacted Liquid to inquire about a divemaster internship, we were so bowled over by Zoe's informative and enthusiastic response that we signed up and arrived on 1st September for 6 weeks.
We were picked up from Dumaguete and and greeted on arrival by the resort manager Jim, who was to be our instructor. Jim has a great teaching style, he is very approachable, engaging and from day one he really made us feel like part of the team. He was a mind of information regarding the theory elements of the course and we had a great laugh with him during our practical skills.
The resort provides the option for the DM/IDC interns to stay in what they advertise as dorm style accommodation but you actually get your own room. The bathroom is shared and there is also the added bonus of a small kitchen with fridge so that you have the option to cook for yourselves.
Liquid are a very sociable lot, dinners here are served family style with a set menu every night and there is always at least 1 member of the team eating with the guests, This gives a great atmosphere and sets the tone for the next day of diving. We had some great meals and in particular loved the Mexican dishes that were served - Darlenes cakes and cookies also deserve a special mention.
Tim & Zoe are the owners and have worked in the dive industry for a long time so what they don't know about diving isn't worth knowing. They pride themselves on being an affordable
resort for the modern traveller, but I think they are much more than this. They are warm, friendly hosts who always go that extra mile to ensure that everyone is having
a great time and enjoying themselves. We personally experienced their genourosity on many occaissions and seeing the amount of customers that come back repeatedly we are not the only ones who think this.
We absolutley loved our time at Liquid, it was so hard to leave that we stayed for 8 weeks. Everybody made us feel so welcome and we know like so many other guests who have been before that we will definately be coming back.
If you love diving or are thinking of taking a course then you should eat, sleep, dive, live Liquid and you will not be disappointed.
