The resort is one of the best I have visited around Asia and the staff and management here are both fantastic. Everyone is super friendly and helpful and they really make the effort to serve you personally all the... More

Visited Blue Ribbon in middle of June with a friend, and from the Transfer in Manila Airport until we had to check out, everything was organized. First morning on Breakfast, everybody knows your name. Quiet location, walking distance to the center of entertainment (Bars, Disco, ...). The rooms need a refresh, indeed, as already stated in other comments, but how... More

This was our (myself, wife, 18 yr old, 10 yr old) first dive holiday after completing the Padi Open Water course last year, and our first 'dive resort' experience. We were not disappointed. We had arranged a transfer from Manila airport and our smiling driver Ernie couldn't have been better, even though our plane arrived 45 minutes late at 1.45am.... More

Had changed our trip to come to Sabang beach and went here instead of action divers and had a wonderful time. Just got done getting advanced training in Koh Tao and wanted to explore diving even more. They have so many dive sites here and the blue ribbon shop gives a very fair price. We had Jun as our dive... More

This was a great place to do our open water course as it was very professional and friendly, unlike a lot of the other dive resorts we came across in sabang! The instructors were helpful and patient and willing to answer any questions we had. They were a good laugh to learn with and the level of training was very... More

I'm just back from my first stay at the Blue Ribbon Dive Resort and it was a fantastic experience. The diving sites were truly wonderful and the dive masters experienced.

This place is professionally run by expats and it shows in the attention to details. The management knows how to train personnel and run a hotel. While not the most fancy place, it has all the essentials a diver needs (A/C, wi-fi, safety box in the room, clean showers with hot water) and the friendliest and the most attentive personnel....
