As I stayed with a diving friend, but do not scuba dive myself, my perspective on Liquid does not include the diving experience, which is obviously important for most visitors here.
Located near Dauin, Liquid is located in a secluded spot along the beach, but within walking distance of the national highway where plenty of busses headed to Dumaguete pass by if you feel like taking public transport on Negros.
The accommodation consists of separate little houses, each with a private bathroom, balcony and a view of the garden, ocean or both. The attention to detail in their construction is simply excellent. Aircon is, however, not available, and the showers operate on warm water from a natural spring that can vary in temperature between cool, lukewarm and hot. There is also a semi-salt-water swimming pool of decent size and nice temperature if you prefer that over swimming in the ocean.
Breakfast and lunch are served with a number of options to choose from, and the food is of very good quality. Dinner is a fixed menu, but you are always free to eat somewhere else, or requested something to be prepared for you if you do not fancy the meal of the day.
The general atmosphere of the place is very relaxed, and the owners and staff are very friendly and always helpful. They will surely make you feel welcome upon arrival, and be friends by the time you leave.
