“May Holiday”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We stayed at Mike's from 9-12 May. Very nice clean place. Very good food. Beach front is not really great, but a 10 minute walk to the sanctuary is worthwhile. Bathroom fixtures need fixing though. Staff was great. Mike the owner makes you feel at home. my daughter played with his son and a neighboors daughter in MIke's house.

we took the dive package and have 5 days of wonderful scuba diving activities ...
The dive guides are helpful and know the dive sites well.

After one of the dives, i felt sick, (skin rashes and vomits)... Immediately Mike (owner) suspected that i had a minor decompression sickness or animal bites and administered O2 treatment. Thankfully, the rashes dissapeared after the treatment and I was able to continue with my dives the following day.

The food is good and delicious too..

To Mike ... thank you very much.

I was again lucky to step into just the kind of accommodation that suits me, being a single traveler.
This time I was traveling with a friend who left a bit earlier than I did.
At Mike's resort you will meet wonderfull like minded people, mostly divers, and will make friends throughout your stay.
I was lucky enough that Mike's niece and her partner from California were there at the same time and we became really good friends. I was invited to join them on tours and he brought us to the ferry when we went back to Bohol.
The accommodations a very nice, AC, TV, everything very clean and (very important) no houskeeping makes unnessessary noise if you want to sleep longer. (I hate this especially town hotel staff do this all the time)
However, I extended my stay more and more and would be still there if I would have found a flight from Dumaguete.
We will see again Mike, count on me xxx

Room Tip: All rooms are very much the same, but two superiour rooms have a direct see view and are larger

Mike's is a true hidden gem! With attentive, personalized service by Mike and his whole staff, wonderful diving & delicious food, my boyfriend and I loved our 4 days there. Dauin is a nice area, about 20 minutes from Dumaguete (an easy tricycle ride) and is nice to walk around. We spent a majority of our time diving with a wonderful dm, Marlon, but the whole dive staff was really top notch. The accommodations are simple, spacious and very clean. The food, especially the pancit, is delicious! No request was too big or too much, everyone was accommodating and kind. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

We have been diving in the Philippines for over 10 years and I have to say Mike's resort is one of the best we have been to for a combination of diving, the size of the resort (we prefer smaller) and friendliness. As Jarred (who we met there) says the boat crew rocked. Good bunch of fun guys who really looked after their clients. Right blend of professionalism and fun. The diving is great - a trip to Apo Island is definately recommended. The food and drinking at Mikes is very sociable - with Mike and Jo often joining in.

If you feel the need to stretch your legs there are a couple of other slightly larger resorts 2 mins walk up the beach. If you sail and want to stretch your legs more Mike has a Hobie 16 you can borrow/rent. We did and twin wiring around in your shorts and t-shirt is not something we get to do too often in London.

Go to Mikes. Unless your taste is for mega expensive large resorts you will love it.

Had opportunity to visit the Philippines with the family for the first time. I have been places such as Roatan, Cozumel, and Dominican Republic and this place by far had the best service and friendly staff. Mike, his family, and staff had all of our families names down on day 2 and treated us like one of their own. The main purpose of the trip was for diving and I'll tell you that the surrounding islands are some of the best. The dive crew especially "Marlan" rocked, they were friendly, fun, and treated everyone great. Boat crew always was ready to get your gear on and off for you and had hot coffee waiting after the dive. Rooms were nice and clean with clean water and shower waiting. Every night there was a "Dish of the Night" which had anything and everything for the whole Philippine experience. My wife got certified at the resort while she was there. She was quite nervous but Dive Master Bob took great care of her and now we have the opportunity to return for a second dive trip as a couple. We had so much fun and can't wait to see the crew and staff in the future. Thanks Mike and Staff :)

We made another trip back to Mike's, this time with our adult children and their spouses/friends. As usual, it was another great 8 days/nights at Mike's. This is our 4th trip back and some things never change; as in the great attention and service given by ALL the staff, the clean and comfortable rooms, and Scuba diving opportunities. Things that have changed is the new bar-b-que and bar area that was completed during our stay. We were slightly concerned that our adult children may become bored because of the small/quaint family atmosphere of Mike's, but they really enjoyed themselves. There is no doubt that when we return to the Plilippines, we will be staying at Mike's Dauin beach resort.
