you dont get what you pay for in the restaurant, for a average disc of 300pesos, the quality should be 5 stars, its long way from that.

there are other great resorts with normal restaurant prices than this here...
it disapoint me a lot. but for dive and relax its okay.

I stayed here for two nights while I was learning how to dive (Open Water Diver) at Sipaway Divers, which is a PADI Dive Center beside the hotel. This hotel is very nice and just a 10 minute boat ride from San Carlos City and 5-10 minutes with single/motorcab. The price pr. night was 2.300 peso (50EUR), breakfast not included. I stayed in a Deluxe room and the air con and shower worked well.
The food at the restaurant is excellent and the portions are very good and reasonably priced for a hotel. There is a happy hour each day between 17-18 so you get two for one cocktails. They also have a small Zoo and the manager has a small pet monkey. Over all I would really recommend this hotel for everyone, everything is clean and nice, the rooms are partially Filipino style (foam mattress). You can have a full body massage for just 300 peso so I recommend going as often as you can ;)
If you speak German you will love it even more since the hotel is run and owned by Germans and most travelers are from Germany and Switzerland.

The only downside is that the insects like me, especially the Mosquitos and I forgot to ask for pesticides the first night, but the second night was a lot better. So if you are prone to insect bites remember to ask the reception to spray your room in the afternoon.

Room Tip: The bungalows have free WiFi in the rooms. The Deluxe rooms have air con.
