We had a fascinating two-week trip to the Philippines (end of January - beginning of February 2014), during which we lived in 9 hotels of different price categories . Wellbeach Dive Resort is perhaps the best and most helpful among all of them, though among others there were more expensive and prestigious hotels.
Extremely convenient location on the beach. Almost directly from the hotel sea door the boat goes to the sea, driving those who wishes diving or snorkeling or simply have a fun boating. We went with a team of divers to Apo Island, snorkeling. There is a very rich marine life on the reef and this place is famous for its opprtunity to see the sea turtles, and we were lucky enough to see one of them!
The staff is very friendly and helpful.The layout of the room and throughout the hotel is well designed and pretty. Our room (Delux room seaview twin) had a balcony overlooking the garden with swimming pool and the sea behind it, was furnished with a table and two comfortable chairs.
We were very pleased with the attention to details that are often overlooked in other hotels: mats at the entrance (to shake the sand) and in the bathroom, spacious wardrobe with shelves and hangers, refrigerator, bedside tables, improvised safe, separate shower faucet to wash boots and costumes after beach entertainments.
It should be borne in mind that due to sufficient distance from major population centers , the hotel has a limited electricity supply mode ( it is switched off from 8:00 till 17:00) and the mobile connection is not good (Globe did not connect at all, SMART has the connection at certain points in the territory), but the wireless internet in the bar is not bad (when the light presents), has acceptable for such remote location speed. Since we were not much worried about the mobile connection and all the day long were traveling, these features didn’t darken our experience.
Good food for a very reasonable price.
One day we asked for a motorbike and it was immediately given to us without any problems. (You need to show the driver’s license when you make the lease) .
And we had a coupon from Tripadvisor on a free bottle of wine. It was immediately given to us and even dressed up in cute "diver’s suit".
The hotel itself is very comfortable, unfortunately pictures doesn't do justice to the original. I'd like to stay at this hotel once again being in this area.

Thanks to Guido and Gino. They are superb people! I enjoy my stay at Wellbeach. Done 2 dives at Dauin with Gino. He has special eyes for marco stuff -- I almost have seen everything (maybe except big fish like manta or sharks). The 3 dives at Apo were marvellous! Apo Island was well-known for turtles! You can see at least 2 for every one dive. Thanks so much to Guido and Gino. I would give it a thumb-up!

Was totally 7 days there, was great "non-limit" diving. I love diving since I am 12 years old and so I liked the way of the diving with the Swiss dive instructor there. One point was a little sad, could go only once to Apo Island for a daytrip as I was the only guest in the hotel. but in the meantime I was already 2 times at Apo Island it self. but will return for sure again to wellbeach once. good food and very clean rooms. the garden is well kept a little paradise. There is no other restaurant or bar near the resort but you can rent motorbikes.

this resort was for us an excellent choice for more reasons: the rooms were (kept) very clean, the staff was very qualified and friendly/helpful, the management very qualified and helpful, the kitchen very qualified and excellent menue, the dive equipement excellent quality and well maintained, dive guides very well qualified, dive support personnel very well qualified, transport to diving spots like Apo Island excellent with their own boat. Acceptable distance to Dumaquete with private or public transport. Very relaxed athmosphere.
