Travelers' Choice
Mike’s Dauin Dive Resort is a small Hotel and Dive Centre located in Dauin, just 20 minutes south of Dumaguete on Negros Island. Our twelve rooms beautifully are only meters from the beach, as is our lagoon pool complete with waterfall. Our aim is to provide you with the highest quality holiday and diving experience and our comfortable size means we can provide you with a relaxed and intimate resort atmosphere. Most guests board our custom built Banca boats to dive or snorkel the stunning paradise of Apo Island only a short ride away. This premier dive site is one of the oldest and best managed marine sanctuaries in the Philippines. Expect large shoals of fish, many sea turtles and spectacularly colourful coral gardens. Closer still are the dives at Dauin, which are recognised as some of the best macro-photography sites in the Philippines with the chance of meeting Frogfish, Seahorses, Flamboyant Cuttlefish and the famous Blue-ringed Octopus.

Stayed with the whole family and it was simply amazing. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Staff are amazing, stayed for a week and never get tired of their food. Such a great variety and chef is so nice with all of our kid's extra request. Will definitely stay here again.

1st time to Mikes and very impressed. Large comfortable rooms. Well maintained gardens with landscaped swimming pool close to the beach. Good helpful service from all the staff. Tasty food with generous portions. The diving was professionally managed and the local guides are expert at spotting small and unusual critters on the reef. Mikes was the perfect place to chill and relax - too good in fact - it was difficult to get the enthusiasm to go diving :-)

Following my umpteenth visit to Mikes's, which is probably my favourite dive location in the Philippines, I've probably said everything in previous reviews so please excuse any repetition. The rooms are comfortable (with 8 original and 4 newly added) and set in a small resort with beautifully tended gardens and direct access to the beach. There is a small, well maintained, pool and an open air (covered) restaurant area, as well as ample additional seating throughout the garden. The cuisine is local Philippino, Mexican or European, with good sized portions of quality food, all cooked and served by the amazingly friendly and helpful staff who are all long term employees of the resort. The diving is exceptional. There are very experienced local guides, who take small groups of max 3-4 divers and, if there is anything to see, they will find it for you. The diving is done from either of 2 purpose built banqa boats and will take you to nearby Apo Island for superb corals, shoaling fish and turtles etc or locally along the coast for muck diving, where you see all the weird and wonderful - on just one dive this time, I saw 6 frogfish, ranging from minute to very large, 3 flambuoyant cuttlefish, devilfish, dragonets etc etc. Over the years, I have probably done close to 150 dives with Mike's and never tire of seeing the wide range of wildlife available. Numbers permitting, they will also arrange day trips to other islands and dive locations and local island trips to places of interest, if you're not divers or need a rest day. If you need training, there are excellent ex-pat instructors who can give the full range of PADI tuition. I am a BSAC Advanced Diver/Advanced Instructor and travel with all my own gear but the resorts hire equipment is of good quality and gear hire and dive costs are very reasonable. All in all, a great dive resort that I will be returning to in the not too distant future.

We stayed at Mike's for 3 nights in February. We chose the resort as we were interested in the PADI diving courses and dumaguete is a great starting point if you want to do island hopping in the Philippines. Transportation from the airport to the resort was organised for us and was hassle free. The resort is lovely and the staff were kind and attentive. The rooms are cleaned daily and we had a beautiful view of the ocean and pool area from our room. There is bar/ restaurant where good and reasonably priced food and drinks are served from the morning till late. But most importantly: If you want to do the PADI open water certificate, this is the place to go! Our instructor, Jonathan, was amazing ! The Dauin marine sanctuary is just around the corner and we got to see incredible marine life during our training! We didn't even need to go to Apo Island for the turtles as we got to see multiple turtles right there! Jonathan knows the area really well and even knows the turtles by name :) They went the extra mile to get us certified in a limited amount of time and we really enjoyed every second of it. Highly recommended!
