Staff are wonderful. Friendly and accomadating. It's relaxed and above all genuine. Peter and Neil the divemasters are very professional and knowledgeable and you are in SAFE hands with them. I can't wait to go back.

I have read a bad review on this resort in a tripadvisor forum so I wanted to write and give my experiences with my stay at Big Apple.

The diving: the resort has a full dive shop right on the property with great equipment and gear. I was most impressed with their wet suits because they all looked brand new. They do offer general diving and also dive courses. The cost for diving is 900 Php per dive (with gear included) which seems to be a good rate to me.

The room: I stayed in the suite room for 2,000 Php per night. Had great a/c, comfortable chairs in the room for relaxing and a nice bathroom. The shower was a hand held unit with an electric hot water heater. I always had plenty of hot water but water volume was not the best. Lots of closet space for your clothes. The negative was the bed matress. Your standard Philippines thin foam mattress with a wood base. Not the most comfy. The room did have a patio area with a big papasan chair. A nice place to relax and watch the pool area.

The pool: I thought the pool was great. Warm water and they did maintenance on it almost daily. vacume, net, chlorine...etc. The water was clear and I went swimming daily.

Restaurant: A good place to eat. Open 24 hours, they do play music but the area with the pool tables has the speakers so if you don't want to hear the loud music, just sit in the other section and you will be fine. Breakfast is good, tocino is great. Pancit bihon is also very good. Best item on the menu is the pizza. Problem is price. Very expensive. You can get good quality food for about 1/2 the price if you go to Small Shot or Relax. Stay away from their pina coladas and the apple pie...not very good.
