I can't say a lot, because I didn't dive with this dive shop, but I'm writing because of three important reasons. First, we lived at the Dolphins bay hotel, and we chosen this hotel because of the dive shop, sadly, we were disappointed. At their web page we read that they are organazing liveboards to the famous dive site Anilao,... More

We spent 4 nights at this resort. Resort is very peacefull. Room was clean and large. Food was good and stuff kind. Beach in front of resort was great. We didnt dive but dive center and all equipment looked good. Location is perfect for trip to Sabang or Puerto Galera. Great choice for this kind of money!

So peaceful and the view is just perfect. I love that everyone of the staff, even the owners are so accomodating and warm. The stretch of the beach is paradise. I also love that this is far from the noise of the "white beach". Their food is also good!

I stayed for 6 nights and had a amazing time. The location is very peaceful with a nice section of beach. The food at the restaurant was fantastic-They serve a wide range of Filipino and more western food. The buffet breakfast offers a good range of food too. The staff were very helpful and answered any questions I had. My... More

When we arrived at the place (at the top of the resort), we were overwhelmed by the length of the stairway. It was such a long way down, but the beauty of the beach is just as overwhelming. We reserved the deluxe family room; directly in front of the pools which is very convenient. But we were told that we'd... More

We've been to this part of Mindoro for 5th time. After a year spent in the Philippines, this was the first time a hotel staff actually really ruined our trip and caused us a financial damage. What went wrong? 1. They forgot our booking and demanded extra payment from us. 2. They promised us to book a boat trip back... More

We stayed there for a night. The staffs are very accomodating and polite. The rooms are huge. the beach is beautiful and it's not crowded, it's like the place is ourselves only. the free breakfast included on the package is buffet style breakfast.
