“Great time, great stay”

Fantastic staff and food. Mike is the most gracious and down to earth guy. He went out of his way daily to make sure my family of four felt at home (kids 16 & 14). Oh yea, and don't forget about the diving. Besides the beauty of the sea the boat staff goes way above and beyond.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Mike's resort in late April/early May. Initially we planned on staying for only a week, but we liked it so much we extended our stay. The rooms are nice, clean, and comfortable. The menu/food at the restaurant was by far better than others we encountered while visiting the Philippines. Mike and his staff were very friendly and helpful. I hope to someday go there again! Overall, it was an A+ experience.

It's our third time to check in this homey hotel. What made us keep coming back is the overall "feel good" experience. It all starts with the nice beach ambiance, warm people, and great "extra mile" services from land to water and kitchen top to room amenities! Mike the owner, Joy the ever reliable "mini-Mike", Bob, Marlon and Ace as Dive masters, Bryan the chef and the ever cheerful ladies all around the resort in the kitchen and clean-up " ladies-in-waiting " sum up to a great thrilling feeling of coming back "home". Not to mention equally thrilled guests that we met all around the globe! Keep it up y'all!

Room Tip: This is great for divers and away from it all feeling.

We stayed here for 2 glorious weeks could not fault anything, our host Mike the owner with the customize Plan was there when you needed him with advise on the island , everything in the resort was top class very clean and tidy ,the beach is just micro seconds away,the beach is one of the best in the world .We would HIGHLY recommend this resort so people give it ago . The diving is absolutely Pandora, and you can go anywhere, anytime with the dive master ready most of the time. The Restaurant is open to your taste, add on cooking at your request, the wife Joanne is making sure the quest is having fun and satistied with the service. Even the dog resort "LOLA" is accommodating and watching over us while spending overnight outside the hotel in the beach.

I called Mike really early in the morning asking if he had a room available and was lucky! Mike and his team were really friendly, the food there is nice, staff is great and diving in Dauin was amazing. I do recommend and look forward to go back! Thanks!

This was our first trip to Dauin and was aware that there were many other resorts around the area. Like many, I chose to stay at Mike's after reading and evaluating the reviews here on TA. Am real happy that we made the right decision, as I can now say without a doubt that all the positive reviews are true! (i.e. good, clean and comfortable beach front accommodations, honest and friendly personalized service, variety and good tasting food, professionally run, well trained and equipped dive operation, homey and relaxing atmosphere, beautiful and well kept grounds, excellent value, etc.).

We also experienced first hand Mike and his staff's honest to goodness genuine care, concern and willingness to help (without asking) at a time of need. My son and I stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights in May as a planned jumping off point to dive and discover Apo Island. I also took this opportunity to meet and dive with my niece and her boyfriend who were also residents of Dauin. My son and I were diving Apo with another group that day when news came that my niece's boyfriend went missing after he went out free diving alone in Dauin's marine sanctuary. Dauin has a small dive community and news like this gets around fast. As soon as we got back to the resort in the late afternoon, Mike was on the beach waiting for me and my son and immediately drove us to the area where the search was on-going. The search unfortunately had to be called off because it was getting dark and would resume the next morning. Aware that I was the only relative around, and that my niece would be alone that night, Mike generously offered my niece a free room beside ours at his resort. You could see Mike's kindness and genuine concern as he also tried his best to console my niece that evening, ensuring without notice that all her needs was cared for. Without asking, he also organized and put together our search group of 9 divers that was to go out the next morning (also supplying all the tanks, equipment and transport for free). Although I have been diving for around 20 years, I am not search and rescue certified. Mike's dive training and experience showed that early morning as he remained very calm, cool and collected. He pretty much led, coordinated and mapped out a strategy with the coast guard and other search teams. And to top and end it all, it was Mike and Bob who also retrieved and found the body.

I was hesitant in including this tragic event in my review but felt it important to mention as it reflects Mike's true character and the character of the resort he owns and operates. His kindness, genuine concern for guests and staff, doing the right and good things at the proper time gives a whole new meaning to exceeding one's expectations. For this, we are very grateful to Mike, Bob and all his staff. Again, thank you very much and like many previous guests, we will surely be back!

We chanced upon Mike's Place and the experience turned out to be a happy coincidence. We were a large group/family (10 people including 5 friends, a very senior citizen at 82 yrs old, two teenage boys, and 2 young kids) and we blindly followed a recommendation by an amateur travel writer in an inflight magazine. It turned out to be a very wise recommendation.

The place is owned and managed by Mike and his Filipina wife (I forget her name though), and run by an excellently-trained staff. Everyone -- from the owners to the staff -- are friendly and accommodating, and took care of all our needs.

The place is extremely well-kept (very clean rooms, well-maintained pool and gardens) and the food served at the bar/restaurant quite delicious.

We didn't do any diving -- the place has licensed divers and instructors and is a major come-on for their guests -- but enjoyed the place just as well. It's quiet (and really pretty at night), has access to the beach (nothing to write home about but still a welcome addition), and the relaxed all-around vibe makes for a really great vacation.

Great experiences:
1) We came in without reservations but Mike took us in and had us settled in a jiffy.
2) Wi-fi is available throughout the resort.
3) Quiet and comfortable (it helped that the other guests were quite friendly, too).
4) The kitchen staff would accommodate our requests even if it wasn't on the menu.
5) The owners were always around to check if everything was in order.
6) The pool was very clean and well maintained (makes up for the fact that the beach is so-so and also since we didn't really do any diving).
7) The resort has about 10 or 12 rooms (5 or 6 on each floor?). Big enough to not feel crowded yet small enough to be quiet and relaxing. It makes for a great, more personal service, too. (We checked out a more "popular" resort down the beach -- which was a lot bigger than Mike's -- but found the place crowded and too noisy.
8) Rooms are clean and comfortable, and open to the garden and pool.
