Was there in July for one week. Small, quaint place with a spectacular setting. Service here is professional, warm and efficient. Annalyn handles all the Administration and she is amazing. Pedro the dive master is manages his team with skill and with all the attention to detail that is required. Diving there is some of the best I have ever done This place is a gem. Forget the negative reviews. Its made for divers who want to get off the beaten track. Rent a motorcycle from across the street and you are good to go !

Just finished another 2 week trip at sbsr (15+ times).And as always everything was spot on from the diving to the food, rooms, dive guides, boat boys and resort staff.My 14 year old son Jake completed his junior advanced open water course and im very grateful to Pedro for the time and effort and professionalism he showed. For anyone wanting fantastic diving and a clean modern resort u cant beat sbsr. Well done to the owners and there fantastic staff. Me and Jake cant wait to get back.

On our last (now 9 times total) trip to Sogod Bay Scuba Resort (SBSR) everything was above the top of the summit of the best, again.
Nice weather and clear waters, as usual.
For scuba divers this is the place to visit at least once in the life.

Overall Sogod Bay is a diver’s paradise and SBSR is the place to stay in there.
Book your stay well in advance.
There are not too many rooms.

Thak You all.
We shall be back.

Room Tip: We prefer oceanfront rooms.

I would recommend this resort and the diving. We spent 5 days here in May 2013 with another couple.The Sogod Bay Scuba Resort is a well run with clean rooms, good food, good dive boat and attentive staff. Our arrival pick up and departure arrangements, organised by the staff, were faultless. The diving was relaxing with very good viz with calm seas off a good boat. They run, what I would say is a safe operation. My wife really enjoyed it here & the diving...and that says it all. We would revisit when we are back in the Philippines.

Exercise extreme caution if the floor tiles outside the rooms, on the steps and balcony are wet as they can be very slippery.They need roughing up.

While we were there several guests arrived for their 2nd or 3rd stay. They spoke highly of their previous stays.

Sogod bay diving is mostly beach diving; therefore my friends and I decided to drive and just rent tanks especially since one of us is familiar with the dive sites around the area. We're all experienced dive instructors from another neighboring island. We just needed a place to stay and planning to do 1 day of boat diving with SBSR.

Low and behold, this did not sit well with the owner, Phil. The day that he met me, he was screaming at me in the middle of the road, early morning because he found out that we did some beach diving the day prior. It was too early for me that I didn't realize what was happening! Of course as i was waking up I got more pissed. Unfortunately, this was also the day that my friends and I booked the boat dives with them. In my 12 years working as a dive pro, I was always courteous to customers since "customer is always right" (even if didn't think so). The boat departed at 830am and got back to the resort at 1:30pm, not once did he acknowledge my group, considering that the dive boat is relatively small and he was the owner. What a way to make guests feel welcomed...I guess we were not because upon arrival at the resort he asked us to leave since he found out that we will do some more beach diving. I seriously thought Marcos(Philippine dictator) was dead.

But because we left this dictator resort, we enjoyed our mini vacation way better. We moved to Leyte Dive Resort and Adventure Tours in Malitbog.

The internet in this resort is very slow, they say don't blame them however if you go next door, Peter's Dive Resort it is actually of normal speed.

The sandwiches that they serve in this restaurant is exorbitantly expensive Php190....but it looks like a 5 year old made it. The way it was made and the ingredients put in, I say it looks like a Php30 sandwich. And don't bother asking for extra toast..Php55!

I asked for an official receipt upon leaving and it took them 1 hour to produce one!

End of may 2013, the 4 of us ( Lieve and Kristien from Belgium and Mark and Wim from Holland) enjoyed a wondefull week of Diving in Sogod Bay. Good sea view rooms, excellent food, very helpfull and friendly staf and very experienced dive masters. What more do you want!
Sea life of course! Thanks to do dive masters we saw pygmee sea horses, lost of frog fish! And beautifull coral gardens. Special was the very close encounter with the whalesharks dring our snorkling trip AND THE whaleshark that passed us at 20 meters deep dring our last dive of our holliday. What a way to finish it.
Not a location for general toerists, but perfect for divers!

Room Tip: Take THE sea Side rooms.
