Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
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 eight 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.

Delicious food in the restaurant. Rooms were spacious and clean with an array of toiletries. The managers were always quick to reply to queries and arranged transport to and from the port in Dumaguete. Be prepared for a wait for the food, especially at breakfast time.

I honestly can’t thank Corri and her staff enough for all their help. We rang the night before as my Girlfriend became very ill on our trip and they managed to squeeze us in for 4 nights! We had to change rooms due to no availability and the staff were very helpful. At 5am I

We strolled up for dinner, 7 of us and they accommodated us quite well considering how busy they were. Food was good (fish, chicken burritos, mushroom burger, chicken curry, veggie taco salad and pork adobo) but they did forget our red wine and then charged us but also took it

A great dive resort in a great location. We really enjoyed our time diving with Mikes and found the resort to be well organised, safe and professional. The diving around Dauin is world class and I would definitely recommend Mike's to show you the dive sites.

Mikes refused to let our two kids go on their dive boat!!! SO they suggested that we go to the local ferry port down the coast and grab a boat across. Which we did. And it was a great and cheap way to experience the turtles. The kids loved it.

The beach is fine. I walked either way every morning I was there. Good photo ops including locals drag netting along the beach for fish. You can get to the nearby resorts by walking along the beach for a different dining experience.

How much would it cost?
Depends if you just want a room or a dive package! Room rates run between $68 - $83 per night depending if it is a standard or deluxe room! Very nice and inexpensive small resort with very quiet and clean rooms. We love Mike's resort and go there often!
