Rooms are nicely furnished. Service was good. Location isn't good as there is nothing much outside the resort. But this applies to most dive resorts. What can I expect? Blackouts happened 3 times in my 4 nights stay.

We have found this resort to be more than adequate for the needs of a diver. The rooms are quite compact and basically furnished with a large bathroom. The food is very good and plentiful. If the resort is busy there is a buffet but if there are few guests then your food is served to you. The staff are...

I spent 7 days here in January of 2016. I was very satisfied with the accommodations; the room I stayed in, while not overly large, was comfortable. The Bathroom was spacious. The food was all served buffet style on the outdoor terrace. The food was varied and delicious. The food was a mix of western and Philippino fare. While the...

I have returned here time and time again for several years. The staff never seems to waver in their desires to satisfy even the neediest of customers. From photo enthusiasts to deep tech explorers... Acacia has all the requisite equipment to satisfy any divers hunger... Did I say hungry? Never here, their world-class chef creates some of the most amazing...

All the staff and management were very friendly and helpful. The food was wide in variety, quality and amounts available. The air-conditioned room was spacious and regularly serviced. It is well set up for service to divers, particularly. WIFI was fast from get up until 8:30-ish; then slowed until later that night. Still usable, just expect it to be slower...

Whats great about diving in the province is that its far from the stress that you would get when you're in the city. The Acacia Resort was a great diving spot for divers to enjoy. I've read some of the other reviews about this place and I could agree on some of them like the food is very simple and...

Excellent. 5 stars for all round service. Hot towels after a dive was a very nice touch. Hope the sound system is available for the next visit so we can finish the beers faster ;) Rooms are very spacious. Thanks to Pat and Bert and all the staff for making it special. Left with new friends.

Stayed for a week in this resort. The rooms are spacious especially the suites and deluxe room. The standards room are small but still comfortable though it's nearer to the reception so it's high up. The food here is awesome especially the desserts. The suit up area is slippery when it's wet so be careful.

I just spent a week here at this wonderful resort. While it lacks some amenities that I’m somewhat used to having in other locations, this is my first time in Anilao, so it may be the norm for the area. The entire staff was extremely friendly, and always greeted you with a smile. The resort is very clean, with somewhat...
