“Excellent dive resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

I dove 6 days with the staff of Atlantis Dive Resort in Puerto Galera, particularly Thax, Larry, Jake and PJ, all excellent dive guides that went out of their way to make my diving safe and productive (I am a pretty fanatical underwater photographer). Never had a bad tank, leaky O-ring, or any of the other problems encountered by all of us divers from time to time. Also excellent the work of the boat captains, always ready to help. Puerto Galera is not (in my opinion) a nice destination, as the main business of the town seems to be drinking and strip bars, but the underwater experience with this guys made it all worthwhile.

For photographers especially, Puerto Galera is a “Bucket List” destination being located in the world-renowned Coral Triangle. Thanks for recognizing that our dive team is indeed “top notch” ☺. This doesn’t just happen by chance, but is the result of frequent safety refresher training by our entire staff – including our restaurant staff.

I would like to say thank you to Kris and all the staff at Atlantis dive resort. They were very friendly, professional and safe. The instructors were more than willing to let the clients go where they wanted to dive on any given day. I have dove around the world and Atlantis dive was simply the the best company I've met in a world class setting.

My wife and I just returned from 4 days at the Atlantis Resort in P.G. and 3 days at the Atlantis Resort in Dumaguete.

All I can say is -- BOTH places are fabulous. The facilities are wonderful -- clean, beautiful and friendly; the staff is wonderful -- helpful and hard working; the diving is great and varied; the food -- well, let's just say I had to limit what I ate because I was afraid I wouldn't fit into my dive gear!

This was our first trip to the Philippines but not to dive resorts/liveaboards -- and it won't be our last.

We just spent three days at Atlantis Puerto Galera. The property is gorgeous, with a Mediterranean feel (white stucco and dark wood) and is immaculately maintained. Our room was spacious and had tons of storage. The restaurant was very good and I loved the Mongolian grill option. The dive operation is well organized and efficient.

But what makes this place stand out most is the commitment to customer service. The kitchen will customize your food; everyone knows your name. The dive guides work extremely hard to find the animals people have expressed a particular interest in. Do the night dives in the bay -- you won't believe what you can find under the hulls of the boats! The reefs are lush and colorful, and the structure at Verde Island was dramatic.

I liked the funky character of Sabang Bay, but if you prefer quiet, all you have to do is stay in the resort, which is very calm.

Room Tip: The seaview suites are really beautiful.

We stayed at Atlantis Puerto Gallera over the recent 2013 Christmas holidays, and the visit was as superbly wonderful as our previous 2 trips. Before we discovered Atlantis, we would travel to different areas for dive vacations, including many islands in the Caribbean, Fiji, Belize, Mexico, Honduras, etc, but once we went to Atlantis for the first time, we keep returning. First, the staff are amazing -- professional, friendly and attentive to their guests. Secondly, they run a great dive operation -- very safe, super knowledgeable dive guides, and they take great care of their divers. They have nice dive boats and most dive sites are really short boat rides away (like 5 minutes!). The dive sites are all interesting and varied; we take so many photos that it takes hours to decide the best ones. Thirdly, the food at the resort is awesome. The meals are delicious and they serve snacks after each dive. But most importantly, the staff that work here seem to have a vibe that is difficult to describe, like they really want you to have a great experience at Atlantis. I don't know how else to describe it, but it makes a difference. Lastly, it is a great value. I am planning a return trip right now...then another...then another...

We had an excellent dive vacation with these folks and the best way to sum it up is to say our expectations were exceeded and we have traveled all around the world diving. The culture at Atlantis Dive Resorts is all about first class service which was apparent starting with getting off the plane in Manila, the transfer to the resort, and every part of our stay. We did an all inclusive package which worked very well if you dive all day because we just didn't have the energy to explore other restaurants and the resort restaurant was purported to be the best anyway. It is always the individuals that make a trip special and our dive master and boat captain were absolutely top notch. We dove with Rusty every day and Tito operated the boat and helped with the gear. They were professional, pleasant, tireless, and helpful. I would request them again without doubt.

Our rooms were always kept tidy, our every need was accommodated, even to the level of the staff providing loaner shorts and shirts due to lost luggage (thank you again, John).

From the water or beach looking at the resort, it looks no different than the other resorts and dive shops. The second you walk in to their entrance you feel like you were transferred into a private oasis of calm and care. The was a sorely needed vacation for us coming from rainy and cold Seattle and we are already considering a return trip.

I read other reviewers mentioning it is overpriced. I saw some of the lesser priced dive resorts and the value at Atlantis is excellent. This place isn't meant for the diver backpacking around the world and grabbing a couple of dives here and there. Atlantis is a full service dive shop successfully competing with top level dive operations the world over and for divers planning their one or two trips a year - this will meet your expectations.

Room Tip: These rooms are all on different levels, terraces if you will. Pick your rooms based on your group...

So glad we "exceeded your expectations".
Our all inclusive packages are indeed a wonderful value for guests wanting to get the most value out of their dive vacation with us.
Hopefully this will be the last time you have to deal with 'lost luggage' (fingers crossed it doesn't happen on your next trip here) and glad our staff could help out :)

I recently stayed at Atlantis PG for a long weekend. The dive part of the resort is well managed, staff are very professional and make it a ‘fun’ experience. They give out little snacks during surface intervals, which was well received. The restaurant is probably one of the better ones in PG; food quality was high, although breakfast seems to be aimed at the American traveler with too many ‘sweet’ options, but nothing really ‘hearty’ on the breakfast menu. Restaurant staff are also very friendly, although service can be a little slow at times and a couple of times they completely forgot my orders. I tried the Spa, which was just OK. I would have expected a little bit more of a ‘pampering experience’. Instead it was quite basic, and you can get a similar experience at the massage place in town for half the price. The rooms are very basic and totally overpriced. At the rate they charge, one would expect a little bit more than a bar of soap in the bathroom and a single sheet on the bed that serves as ‘cover’. I got very cold during the first night and asked for a blanket the next day, only to be told that they did not have any blankets! In all my travels I have never come across a hotel or resort that did not provide blankets. I previously stayed at Out Of The Blue in a large Villa and I will do so again in future as the accommodation there is far superior and definitely more value for money.

Indeed our dive staff is very professional; putting safety first, and still they manage to have “fun” with our guests ☺, but sorry you didn’t feel you received value for your money during your stay with us. You mentioned that we have too many ‘sweet’ options for breakfast and nothing really ‘hearty’, but our daily menu offers quite a variety including a selection of eggs (cooked, fried, scrambled, eggs benedict, omelets and more), assorted fruits, waffles, pancakes and French toast, along with oatmeal with nuts and raisin, yogurt with honey muesli and even basic cereals with milk. I am also not sure why you were told that we do not have blankets because, though we do not have blankets (or hairdryers) stored in our rooms, we have them available on request for all of our guests. Out Of The Blue is indeed a lovely small villa setting in Small La Laguna Beach with only 8 accommodations, but for guests looking for an all inclusive dive vacation directly on Sabang Beach we are the premiere choice with forty rooms ranging from Deluxe to Executive Suites and Family Suites, as well as home to our PADI 5 Star Gold Palm dive center.
