“Nice quiet place - would go again”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Small little resort, only 6 or 7 rooms. It is run by a friendly Swiss/Phil couple and staff is friendly and easygoing. Food is simple but good, extensive menu for such a small place actually (they also have lots of Swiss/German dihes apart from their broad choice of local dishes and seafood). The resort has a dive shop and is only 30mins boat ride away from world class diving site Apo island. If you are not into diving/snorkeling you can relax at the pool or just hire a motorbike to explore the region: visit some waterfalls, twin lakes, etc....

Would recommend and would definitely stay again. If you are looking for a quiet place, but still within acceptable distance from dive sites or places to visit in Negros (Twin lakes, waterfalls, hot spring etc...).

Wifi and phone connection is not stable throughout the hotel at the time of my stay, but after all you are on holiday, so no need to be connected all the time :).

We stayed at the Wellbeach Dive Resort, which is run by a Swiss, for 10 nights and it was very pleasant. The food was great and the menu with a big selection. The Resort is small but clean, has a pool and a pretty garden. Every room has direct view of the beach.
The Resort is about 35min from the city Dumaguete and great for people who are in the Philippines not only for the touristic stuff as there are no bars or anything near the Resort; so it is nice and quiet.
The Resort is located directly at the beach and offers great diving courses and excursions to Apo Island and the staff is very friendly and attentive. The beach is black and a little bit rocky but still nice to take a swim.
All in all we had a great vacation in Negros and the Wellbeach Dive Resort and we can only recommend it for divers and people who really want to relax at the lonesome beach.

We stay 7 day at the Resort and it was everything perfect for us.
The Restaurant serves very good food and all employees was smilling and friendly.
They have a beautiful garden to relax with plenty flowers.
Diving was great at Apo Island. Coconut point is excellent for a drift dive.
We can recommend this place to other travellers.

We got, what we payed for. A very nice room, at beatifull garden, a pool, good restaurant and a beach. The beach i small-pebbled but OK for swimming, beautifull clear water. By high tide you have to walk 50 meter to the right if you want to lay on the beach.

Ther owners and the staff are very friende and smiling.

We happened upon Wellbeach by accident. We’d tentatively booked at Malatapy Resort but heard some unfavourable reports about there (from one person, may not be correct)so tried further along the road. The hotel is a small german run operation, 6 rooms in a modern two storey block overlooking a nice pool, then another block housing the restaurant which is right next to the beach. it’s a dark sand beach and the water was quite choppy so wasn’t that appealing while we were there. All rooms have a sea view and a balcony. The room was clean and had two single beds pulled together. There was a fridge and A/C but no safe. The room was well decorated in modern style and the bathroom was good with a reasonably strong shower. There are no restaurants nearby so we ate at the hotels restaurant which wasn’t great and I felt a little expensive for what you got for the Philippines. My Pork and chicken Adobo certainly seemed a little light on the chicken. The room itself was about £40 which seems to be the going rate for European run hotels in the area.The staff were friendly and spoke reasonable English. We don’t dive but the hotel seemed to do well from its dive operation. Its also a handy place for getting boats to Apo Island which is around 30 minutes away by boat. In summary, a small, clean hotel situated by the sea, probably made more attractive if you aim to do some diving.

We were en route to Sipilay and stopped at Wellbeach for a couple of nights after getting of the Cebu-Dumaguette ferry at 1900 hrs. The hotel's about 30 min south of Dumaguette. It's quiet and clean, the gardens, while small, are immaculate and charming. The beach isn't great for swimming, due to a somewhat rocky seabed, but it's fine for going on a long stroll. Staff were very friendly and tried to please. The food adequate - no masterpieces, but absolutely clean. I don't think that one would want to spend many days here at one time as there isn't that much else around and, as I mentioned, the beach is rather unexceptional. But it's nicer than staying in Dumaguette!
A word of caution. We were grabbed by a motorcycle/taxi (about all they have in Dumaguette) as we got off the ferry. When we got to the resort he wanted 1500PHP! The resort would have sent a car for 600PHP. In the end, after way too much whining and complaining, we paid him 640PHP just to get rid of him (it should have been about 400PHP). But, that wasn't the resort's fault. Just a cautionary note for others if they get transportation from the ferry/airport.
