Acacia manages to combine a well laid out, well run and cosy resort with a great dive operation and probably the best food in Anilao. The staff are fantastic from the moment you arrive to the time you leave.
The house reef is average, but most of the main Anilao dive site are a short boat trip away while boat fees are fixed and do not fluctuate as they do in many other resorts.
The rates at Acacia are slightly higher a lot of other resorts but the quality of food served and quality of the accommodation is far superior to other resorts in a similar price range. We've been diving Anilao most weekends for several years now and Acacia is our first choice by far.
The only down side, it can be fully booked quite often so booking in advance is normally needed!
