We did not stay at the hotel but I participated at a scuba dive trip: Everything was well prepared and organized. My dive instructor Jacky (Jacqueline) was excellent! One of us became afraid when we went in but she could calm him down very quickly and we could continue the dive as planned. The whole team at watercolors is exceptionally...

My boyfriend and I and another couple came to watercolors not knowing what to expect. Our trip was absolutely amazing. If you are an avid diver and or thinking of getting your certification you need to book with them. Staff April, Gretchen, John and Andy were so great. Divemasters jaque and pierrick were awesome. They really went above and beyond...

From the moment we checked in, Watercolors Resort has exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival, they served us welcome drinks( wine and calamansi juice) cookies and nuts. They also have a whiteboard with our names written on it. The location is very perfect because you'll just have to take a few steps to get into the beach. The rooms are spacious,...

I booked this last minute and was impressed with the facilities, food and staff. My friends stayed at BlueLilly next door and preferred the food and facilities at my location. The location is excellent and the happy hour was pretty amazing.

We can't say enough good things about the WaterColors resort in Boracay. Upon arrival, we received a glass of wine, cookies and nuts out on the dining deck.
