From what I saw of the accommodation options around Panagsama Beach, Quo Vadis Resort seems to be the best in the area for the amount of money we spent.
We had one of the budget bungalows with ceiling fan and cold shower. I think they actually had rooms available that were cheaper than ours, but I didn't see them. In any case, the bungalow we got proved to be completely adequate. It was spacious and kept very clean. The ceiling fan kept us cool and air-conditioning was completely unnecessary.
The location was also good. Since it's on the southern end of Panagsama, it's pretty quiet, but the party end is just a short walk away. There was a mini-mart just a few steps away where we could get any provisions we needed, and the Last Filling Station restaurant was very close too. That's where we ended up going for most of our meals while staying at Quo Vadis - their wood-fired pizzas are excellent! Quo Vadis has their own restaurant though, and the food there was also quite good. The staff were also all very friendly and helpful.
Of course it's not necessary for diving, but don't expect a sand beach for this or any resort along Panagsama. For that, you'll need to go further north to White Beach, which in my opinion, is actually less desirable due to its seclusion (which would certainly appeal to some). Quo Vadis does have a pool though, which was kept quite clean.
There are certainly more luxurious places to stay in the Philippines, but for the price, Quo Vadis is hard to beat.
