Anilao Outrigger Resort
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Mabini
Reviewed January 27, 2008

We were looking for a nice PADI sanctioned dive resort for a family of four. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. The diving and the dive masters were competent and knowledgeable. There was plenty of space for rinsing equipment, fresh water showers, and soap. The rental equipment was adequate. However, the dive shop was limited in available equipment. Recreational equipment (kayaks, paddleboats, snorkeling equipment, etc.) was easily accessible and usable although old. Most of the rooms and ancillary facilities were in a terrible state of disrepair. The rooms and most common areas were run down, dark and dirty. Some common areas were completely unusable. Some parts of the hotel were littered with junk. The hot tub was drained and filled sand and dead vegetation. There was a dearth of lounge chairs with few places to sit and relax. The rooms were spacious, but the bathrooms were small and poorly ventilated. Despite being told we could pay for everything with a credit card, we found later that many activities such as diving had to be paid with cash. The one bright spot was the food and dining area. The food was excellent and the portions abundant. This was very fortunate since there is no other convenient place to eat within walking distance. The dining facility had a beautiful view of the bay and was generally clean and well maintained. It was a great place to relax with a cup of hot chocolate after a day of diving. Additionally, the staff was always friendly and tried to be as helpful as they could despite the conditions of the facility. This could have been a great place for a dive vacation, but sadly the owners have allowed the facilities and services to deteriorate to unacceptable levels. Even though the rates were not high, it was not worth it.
