Comments 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.
