My husband, 12 year old diving daughter and I stayed for almost 2 fantastic
weeks at Atlantis, Dumaguete. We had an incredible time. The staff, from
the front office to the guys hauling the dive gear to the boat were very
kind and helpful. Restaurant staff knew us by name, and remembered what we
liked to eat and drink. The chef worked hard to please my daughter, and
made her special things. The dive crew was fantastic- most of the time we
were able to have DM Lemi (just for our family), a patient, sweet, fun guy,
who tried very hard to make us happy with our dives.  All the DM's were
very helpful and friendly.  We saw so many wonderful fish and critters.  I
am a total novice u/w photographer, and Lemi was so patient with me as I
tried over and over to capture some of the amazing sea life.  We did wish
they would institute a NO Smoking policy on the boat.    My husband got a
wonderful massage every day in the spa at the resort- very inexpensive by
US standards. Our room had air conditioning and a fan, and was comfortable
and clean. I can't wait to go back.  We booked our trip through Ken at
Ultimate Dive travel.  He chose this resort based on what he thought would
best suit our family's needs.  He did a great job orchestrating the trip
for us.  My pictures are at www.pecsfish.shutterfly.com.
