“Great dive resort”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Planet Dive is an excellent resort for diving. You can see real reviews on its true Trip Advior page under Specialty Lodging in Mabini. The review by “Charles121223243” written on this page was made by Mr. Kirill Babaev, a linguist from Moscow, Russia. Kirill Babaev has another Trip Advisor account --- “cyrllo”, supposedly from Norway. Kirill Babaev is in the habit of making false Trip Advisor accounts in order to discredit people and establishments with which he has personal issues with. Fortunately his reviews are exactly like his character --- clearly lacking in honesty, substance and credibility.

In May 2013 Kirill Babaev went on a 10 day tour around the Philippines that included a trip to Planet Dive where he had a fantastic time. When it was time to check out of the resort however, he claimed that his bill was higher than what he was quoted. That claim is not true and there are only two explanations for Kirill Babaev’s reaction: 1) he was not paying attention when the price was quoted, or 2) he is in the habit of lying in order to avoid paying in full.

At the end of the day, Kirill Babaev lied to his tour provider three times. First, he said that he ran out of cash to pay in full because he paid more than he expected at Planet Dive. But he actually paid the resort with his credit card and did not use any cash there. Second, he said that since he did not have enough cash he would pay the remainder of his tour cost via bank transfer. Third, a few hours after he said that, he emailed that he had already ordered the fund transfer. He actually never ordered the fund transfer and never paid fully for his tour.

Obviously, reviews written by Mr. Kirill Babaev, as “Charles121223243”, “cyrllo”, or any other of his invented Trip Advisor personae are as unreliable and dishonest as the person who wrote them.

“Awful experience”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Planet Dive used to be a good place to dive. However, since they hired new dive masters including Mr. Leo Cuesta it went all wrong. The new people are just unprofessional, and this unfortunately hits badly the reputations of the place.
