After a relaxed journey, we were welcomed to the resort with refreshing drinks. The resort is very well arranged and offers from almost every point a beautiful view of the sea, which is crowned in the evening with a beautiful sunset. At the bar you can round off the day with a drink, while the bartender Jay Jay serves exotic drinks and entertains the guests sometimes through a skillful show. The diving business is very well organized and the boat trips to the dive sites usually take only a few minutes. The dives are done in small groups and the guides organize the dives in a way that everyone has enough time to marvel all the many highlights and to take pictures. We usually completed four dives a day. The dive sites covered a very wide range from, macro, coral, night-dive and blackwater-dive. The diversity of Critter is unbeatable, so that as a photographer with each dive, you will always find several subjects to take pictures and also have enough time to try out new photo techniques. A special thanks goes to the entire staff, who always do a very good job, so you can really enjoy the stay in Buceo.

Property's Favorite Review
Excellent muck diving only 2 hours from Manila airport at Buceo Anilao. Dave and son Dood made is feel really welcome to their intimate family run resort. The diving is on a par with Lembeh for critters. In February the cooler water temperatures meant that there were more nudibranchs than I have ever seen anywhere in 30 years of diving. Scientists diving the same sites a couple of weeks before found 1000 species in a week! A fantastic introduction to Filipino food and hospitality, lovely people. The dive staff and guides were excellent at spotting the rare and elusive. Jimson was our fab guide. And nothing was too much trouble - I forgot a key computer lead back in London and Dood organised his poor Mum to go find a replacement in Manila and have it sent down to us. Loved our stay here, highly recommend it. It was only too short. Next time!

This was a great resort, the rooms were large, we had 2 double & 1 single bed, fridge & large ensuite. The service was excellent from Dave (the manager and part owner) and all of the resort staff. Our dive guides & boat crew and were wonderful, so happy and accomodating to all of our needs. The restaurant staff were always very helpful and welcoming. The meals were great and varied. The "bar man" was absolutely wonderful and extremely talented - made us feel like we were special at all times. Diving is what we went for & it met all of our expectations & more! The comfortable boats were so easy to dive from and the boat staff could not have been more helpful! Our dive guides were all extremely knowledgeable and helpful and they made diving so easy. The wide range of critters was amazing! Overall this dive holiday was one one of the best we have experienced! The entire staff are happy and welcoming and this resort has one of the best atmospheres we have ever experienced! Thank you to all at Buceo Resort, we hope to return in the not too distant future.
