“Review is only for the diving center which was great!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

The diving center is located in the Flower Beach resort. We stayed at Anda White but from looking from the outside the rooms appear to be very basic.

The diving center was great. We went with the German instructor Mandy, and she was fantastic. Really nice as a person and a great diver. We were also joined by the divemaster Eddie who was very nice and helpful. All in all we were very happy about the divecenter and the staff. We would for sure recommend the place.

We are from California. First time in Bohol and went directly to Anda. We saw a signage FloWer Beach Resort. The road going there sounds rough- a challenge to those people wanted adventure, but the prize is a perfect paradise when you arrived FloWer Beach and Diving Resort. It was such a great place to stay-in. We planned at first to stay only one day, but as we enjoyed the place, imagine we stayed 1 week. We had a perfect stay there. Employees are so friendly to us. The receptionist and other staff are so accomodating. The manager Jes entertains our needs and explains everything on our concerns. He offered as "Lambanog" (a local drinks) in the first night and explained it came from Coconut Tree (fantastic- 40% alcohol). Foods are very good from local to international menus. The gardens are so naturally beautiful- perfect! Rooms are clean. And the most of everything---- the divesites are so amazing. Divings here are so excellent. Perfect divesites. Dive instructors are so entertaining too...We 100+1% recommend this resort to all travellers. Prices from food to accomodation are reasonable. Not that cheap but it is ok. The only problem I encountered in this resort which i do recommend to the management is the uniform to all the staff. It sounds confusing who are the workers because they do not have uniforms (difficult to identify either they are guests or workers).... some workers are tattoed and smoked (not good to travellers who are health conscious)... Anyway, over-all rating is excellent!

Room Tip: Both standard and deluxe rooms are excellent. But we do recommend the standard--- its seaview rooms.

We were a little disappointed with this resort for several reasons. It has huge potential but needs some money spent on it. One of the windows in the beach side hut we had was cracked and the fly screen had holes in it. The grounds are great and are one of the redeeming features.

The staff were very friendly and helpful but needed some more training. The bar staff couldn't make basic cocktails (eg a margarita) and had to get them sent down from the restauarant. The food was ok but the portions were small and over-priced. The exception to this was the suckling pig night which was excellent.

The owners (Florence and Werne) were very friendly and helpful but I think they have been there so long, they are blind to some of the improvements needed.

There is a great dive operation and Eddie, the divemaster, was very friendly.

Room Tip: You get the view with the beach side huts but no a/c. The rooms with a/c don't have the view.

Stayed here for 5 nights (prebooked because of christmas): the good things were an amazing beach, a nice and friendly management and staff and a great located room. the bad things were an ok yet overpriced restaurant, not very clean rooms (rusty, leaking etc.), over priced for what you get (we always choose basic accomadation but pay accordingly), and though it is advertised as a diving center we were not able to dive since we had no padi certificats and the master instructor was on vacation (we did stay for 5 nights during high season so imagin our disapointment).

FYI, this resort has 2 seperate accounts in trip advisor so you should look at both of them befor you decide (just sort by flower beach resort and the 2 will show).

A good place to rest. Anda is a quiet town, but there is enough to do. The beachfront cottages are basic, but cleaned daily and have a fantastic view on the beach. The owners are a very friendly couple who will do everything to make your stay pleasent. The coconut "schnaps" is great!

A paradise atmosphere with white sand beach and rooms at the ocean front. The German owner and his staff are super friendly and helpfull. The restaurant serves very good and affordable meals. Although Flower beach resort is quiet there are a lot of things to do. Diving, snorkling, a walk along the beach to Anda, the waterfalls of Anda, etc. We really want to recommend this resort.

Rooms are large, clean, air conditioned and comfortable. Satellite TV for an extra charge. Nice beach, at low tide you can walk for kilometers. Dive shop on site. Large basketball court. Nice restaurant with a varied menu offering local fare. Free access to a computer/internet in lobby. Friendly and helpful staff. Cheaper than neighboring resorts. Grounds are very well kept, lots of plants/flowers. Would definitely return!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have a nice balcony/great view
