Swiss-managed resort mainly targeting diver clientel for boat excursions to the Apo Reef. Very kind family-like staff, and open bar+restaurant area, most rooms in small bungalows across the area. Swimming/snorkeling at the beach possible but sometimes jellyfish (beware). Regular, multiple-day excursions to the Apo Reef, only very few other (attractive) dive spots nearby. Some alternative activities are promoted, just ask... More

We had a great 3-days 2-nights liveaboard with Apo Reef Club in May 2016, just on the cusp of the monsoon season. It was hot, hot, hot but the diving was superb, uwith excellent visibility, awesome 30-meter-plus reef walls, abundant and healthy coral gardens resplendent with macro, sharks and turtles galore, and even a nice wreck thrown in for good...

I really loved this place. On a quiet beach with no other resorts around, a quarter mile off the main road. Just the sound of waves, wind and birds. The staff showed all the best of Phillipine and Swiss hospitality and took care of my every need. The bungalows were private, clean, and with all the amenities except for a... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting the owner Michael, he picked us up from the San Jose airport. We stayed in the beach front bungalow and were surprised with personalized mugs and flowers on our bed. So sweet! The sunsets from our room were amazing. The crew on the live aboard was very professional and everyone at... More

The resort is pretty nice, but it's definitely over priced for the Philippines. In addition I found the management to be very money hungry; it felt as if their focus was to make as much money from me as possible, rather than to make sure I had the best possible experience. That really puts me off a place. The rooms... More

Never visited a place where I felt the most welcomed, comfortable and..on a holiday! Surroundings in the rural area of Occidental Mindoro makes you feel that you're part of something privileged, and the staff makes you feel even more so. If you're into diving, there's your place, too. Chance to see and experience the Apo Reef in it's glory is... More
