Went for a family vacation and was not disappointed, the attention to detail were second to none. The staff treated us like family where nothing was to much trouble. The dive crew done everything for us and we never lifted a tank, my dive guide Marco was fantastic with his knowledge and critter spotting with a wealth of experience that shone through.
The food was exceptional throughout my vacation again with the staff looking after all our dietary needs.
I must thank the resort manager Toby for his gracious hospitality as nothing was too much trouble and treated us like kings.

We went with a group June to July 2014. The staff was excellent - if you asked they provided it. The massages were wonderful and very inexpensive, the perfect way to end a day of diving. We requested local dishes for diner instead of the fabulous food on the menu and it was all you could ever want. The dishes they made for us exceeded what we expected. We did a city tour on our down day instead of snorkeling with the whale sharks. It was a wonderful way to get to see some of the local shops and sights.

I stayed from 19(sat) jul to 25(fri) jul 2014 at Atlantis dumaguete.

1) diving ; I dived 4 times diving per day everyday. Dauin coast is paradise for muck diving. addition to that fortunately I saw a small Ray at night diving. It's real fantastic experience ever. And Apo island is super fantastic area of entire my diving tour. I dived with turtle twice with breathtaking coral. I payed another extra apo diving fee, but it's definitely worth of. during my stay the weather is not quite good because of rainy season of philippine. I have only 2 days fine visibility but that's undescriable. Thus diving in dry season makes more happy, but it's not bad in rainy season.

2) diving crew ; all diving crew are extremly kind and professional. I thanked 2 paul, dek, genie and the rest of crew, especially thanks to dek for being my buddy and gurdiance during diving, as I told you you are the best dive master instructor I've ever seen. That video we made together is for my girl friend actually, deeply appreciated again!!

3) atomisphere ; dumaguete is a small and exceptionally silent and calm place in philippine, I think. It's far from cebu, bohol and puerto galera's viable atmosphere. Feeling more relax and comfortable and the resort is located quite far from city, thus absolutely isolated. That means Nothing to do without diving.

4) meal ; toko is quite good. But I think toko in puerto galera is much better than dumaguete. I suggest what about switching dumaguete and puerto galera chef each other for a while to make an unequal balance right between two places.

5) resort ; is super fantastic. The one thing i wanna complain is there are so many mosquitos. My suggestion for this is using electical device for retarding mosquitos like some other hotels normally do.

6) cost ; atlantis is luxurious resort thus the fee isn't cheap, actually expensive. However considering 4 times diving per day and full board meal plan, it is quite reasonable price. But remember the price in resort in any item is twice or three times higher than outside resort, for example massage or beers.

7) conclusion ; atlantis is world class , Maybe the best in philippine. But there's lots of things to be changed.
Here are some of my opinions

1. Cost down massage service, it's usual not speecial. I experienced a lot of massage services in philippine and other asian contries, in my experiences the quality of resort massage is "Nothing special"

2. Diversify meal plan, atlantis is primarily aimed for american tourist. So meal is focused on american style. Although there are 3~4 menues including asian cousine, it's poor. In my opinion it's below the average. Actually american style food is not quite good. Just average or below.

3. Expand more dive geares in dive shop ; there are only limitrd items in the shop. I wanna buy fins but there are no fins. Although Considering almost divers who visit atlantis have their own gear, it's quite limited items in the shop.

4. Transfer between resort and city uncomfortable. The transfer cost actually beyond common sense meaning highly over priced. At least resort could offer tri-cycle call service on the request of their guest. I think that's the basic service that resort must offer.

Thank you SK for your awesome review. We appreciate that you pointed out areas of improvement, because we really want all our guests to experience a world-class vacation with us. While you gave us a fantastic review I would like to address a few of your comments above:

Mosquitos – drat those pesky things, and they are so much of part of a tropical environment. We try to be environmentally conscious and do plant citronella plants around the resort to deter them along with spraying insecticides, and it honestly does work quite well for the most part.

Our spa is designed to compliment our guests’ diving enjoyment, offering a wide variety of services ranging from a selection of 60 minute massages beginning at US$25, to our “Atlantis Signature” massage (90 minutes and currently US$35), to half and all day special combination spa packages that are value priced and include choices of treatments, baths and massages.

Both our restaurant and chef at our Toko’s restaurant get multiple rave accolades from guests (especially those with special dietary requests) and we’re disappointed that you did not find our menu offerings to your taste. On your future visits please speak with our restaurant manager and we will be more than happy to accommodate your requests. We encourage all guests to let us know immediately their culinary preferences. We do have a diverse clientele (with close to 50% being American) so we do try to vary our menu selections to cater to our guests’ tastes.

Lastly regarding the transfers. Indeed the fact that we are located approximately 30 minutes from the city of Dumaguete is advantageous to our guests wanting a relaxing diving vacation that is away from the hustle and bustle of the main area. We offer transfers to and from the local airport in our resort jeepneys (local style of bus) and taxis are available from P600 (approximately US$14) for guests wishing to venture into town during their stays.

Overall, it sounds like you really had a wonderful diving holiday with us. With two resorts and a liveaboard we offer three styles of vacations – relaxing and secluded at Dumaguete, an active nightlife at Puerto Galera, and our Azores liveaboard with three 7 – 12 night itineraries to Bohol, Malapascua – Cebu and Tubbataha. Each one offers something unique, but each provides outstanding diving, professional staffs and service.

The Atlantis Resort and its Azores Liveaboard boat is a superior vacation in every way. From arrival in Manila, the resort meets visitors and ensures they're taken care of whether flying directly to Dumaguete or staying in a Manila hotel for a day or two. Upon arrival. luggage is handled by the Atlantis staff. Upon arrival in Dumaguete, once again staff meets all arriving visitors, gathers luggage, and drives everyone to the resort. A week on the Azores boat is terrific. The dive masters are great at caring for all divers and finding marine life the unseasoned eye would never see. The boat captain continuously sees to all passenger's needs and selects great dive sites based on variety of sea life as well as weather and safety. The food at every meal is superb and geared towards Western tastes. Diving takes place from Zodiac boats with very specific briefing prior to each dive. A follow-up week at the Atlantis Resort is not to be missed. The restaurant, front office, maid service, and dive staff is A+ in every regard. The three daily meals offer wide choices to suit every taste. There are five daily dives available everyday (2 morning, 2 afternoon, 1 night) so divers can dive as much or as little as they want. Also onsite is a spa offering numerous services to include numerous types of massages at very, very inexpensive rates. If there was anything wrong with this resort or the liveaboard boat, I couldn't find it. I've stayed at many dive resorts around the world and four previous liveaboard
boats and these were the absolute best in both categories. Upon departure and arrival back in Manila, once again an Atlantis staff member is there to ensure travels get to their hotels or follow on flights. You cannot lose picking Atlantis and the world class diving!!!

Room Tip: Pay extra and get the deluxe Garden Suite
