“The Dive shop on Boracay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

There is a jungle of diveshops on Boracay. We were lucky enough to know someone that livets on Boracay that recomended us Water Colors. My kids Wanted to get a certificat and I'm very happy with Watercolors. They were very serious and safe about what they were doing. Divemaster Jenny tok very well care of my kids, she REALY wanted them to learn.
Thanks again

Soo charming people working at the place, love them! The setting on the beach of the north place is unbeatable. Cosy is the word for the whole place. They love diving and want you to learn diving but it's no need to while staying as a guest.

We went purely to Dive and we are glad to have chosen watercolors. Apparently there are a couple of locations, and we were located ON the beach very close to Willy's Rock, on White Beach.

The rooms are very basic, however very clean and the bathroom was more than ok. If you are after luxury then this may not be the place for you. The room we had was simple and practical, after 3 dives a day this was fine to come back to and just pass out.

The people, and management were extra friendly and my two travel buddies and I had a fantastic time. The Dive instructor was first rate. Very professional, a very good instructor and just a great person to be around. If I dive Boracay again I will be asking for her.

Would I go back to Watercolors - for sure!

Room Tip: We had the room without the view but that was enough for us. I imagine the rooms on the top level wh...

The place is small and at first sight seems like a diving shop, but when you go inside you will be amazed with the confortable rooms and nice bathrooms. And the veranda has nothing in front of it but the beach itself! Great Value. People there are the kindest you will ever find in the philippines!

Ah and the diving shop is great as well. I did my scuba course there.

Room Tip: Just get the rooms 2nd floor in front of the beach

We only stayed of one night and had a triple room, which was on the side away from the beach. It was spacious enough and everything worked well.

The staff, who also run the dive centre, were great. Really helpful and pleasant throughout the time we were there. They were accomodating and let us use the room past checkout time with no problem at all.

The best bit about the place though was the little cabanas to lounge in right on the beach, so cool and an excellent place to watch the sun go down. As it's Boracay there are lots of places for food/drink really close by.

We also dived with them and the divemasters were good; very professional, thorough but also really friendly.

I stayed in Watercolors for a very short stay (only two nights) but I had a great time there. It is ideally located on the beach, view on the see and sunset from the room was just amazing. My room was huge with high ceilling and a very nice bathroom, all very clean and well decorated.
Service was excellent, I was travelling alone but felt very well welcomed, thanks a lot!!
There is no breakfast but you can have tea or coffee and Jonah's, the best fruits shakes on the islands, is just next door for good and cheap meals.
I also had the great opportunity to dive. A very good memory. Thanks a lot to Jenny, I saw amazing things!
Last point is that it is much more affordable than the average resorts on the islands, with a very good quality.
The only thing I would mention is that it is located close to bars and discos and the music can be quite loud at night, specially on weekends. So if you are sensitive to noise, bring earplugs and you'll be fine!
I would definitely recommend Watercolors, this is very good value for money!!!
