Excellent facilities. During busy times they scheduled dive boats to leave
at different times to minimize number of people leaving / arriving at once.
4 boat dives a day. The pier is not to be missed - lots of growths with
lots of marine life. One-hour boat ride to Apo Island which has some of the
healthiest reefs we have ever seen with large groupers, schools (1000's) of
jacks and many turtles. Coastal diving was a mix of muck and reefs with
many critters - seahorses, pipe fish, nudibranchs, stone/scorpion fish,
sting rays, clown fish, lion fish, frog fish, mimic and reef octopus, etc.
One speedboat, mostly bankas (local outrigger boats) all back roll entry
with ladder exit. They lift BCs out of the water for you. Some dive masters
seemed to fall asleep on dives and kind of ignored us. Food was good, busy
time so breakfast buffet, order 1 of 4 from menu board for lunch &
dinner. Chef was outstanding and made us some specials upon request
(sashimi, lumpia). Good A/C and ceiling fan in rooms. Low water pressure.
We put this resort on our to-do (must-do) again list. Very friendly and
accomodating resort workers
