A small Resort. It was clean and tydi. The Staff was very friendly. The kitchen do her best, for enjoying our meal. I think more typical Philippines meals where better then European meals. The Divebase ist in good condition, the boats are small and not so comfotable for the divers they are typical for the Philippines.

Small hotel human size far from the maddening crowd. Kindness, availability, discretion of the staff. Wonderful diving sites for photographers. Nice coral reef in front of the hotel. Weather was cloudy windy hot and sea was rough but it never affected the dives in the morning.

My wife and I loved staying at Sampaquita resort. The staff was fantastic, it was quiet and laid-back. Only down side where the French divers. This group smoked during surface intervals, and included one schmuck with a camera that was always in someones way, or kicking up sand, laying on the coral " for his shot", etc. Would stay again.

Clean and confortable bungalow, with fan and a/c. Friendly staff. Good food, altough the choice is a little bit limited. Very experienced dive masters. If you look for luxury rooms, silver plated cutlery and stuff like taht, this is not your place, but if you look for a cozy atmosphere to share with friends I highly recommend it.
