Comments This trip consisted of 18 divers from all over the US. We picked Eagle point for several reasons. We wanted less stairs than some of the other resorts in Anilao, we wanted a pool, a restaurant that would cook to order if wanted, a functioning bar and rooms with adequate space, beds and electrical outlets. Eagle point met all of those requirements. The rooms were spacious, clean and had several plug ins. They also had a mini bar and a flat screen TV. Which were a nice touch. The dive shop was efficient and once we worked out what divers were going to be on what boat, the dive masters were assigned and we kept the same boat crew for the entire two weeks. Our package included all meals which were served buffet style. The food was good and plentiful although a bit repetitive after two weeks. Several of the group did order dishes off of the menu as well. They serve a pretty good pizza. The customer service was excellent. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. House keeping did a good job of making up and cleaning the rooms. The dive staff were some of the best that I have seen. All of our gear was taken care of from day one. The boats are the typical banca, small and space constrained but sufficient. They are also quick on the water and we never spent a lot of time going to dive sites. The lack of nitrox was disappointing. The resort advertised nitrox as being available but could not produce when we got there. Anilao is severely in need of a mooring system. The rate of coral destruction from the boat anchors is going to cause a significant delcline in the coral quality quickly if something is not done soon. That being said, Anilao has some really great diving and I would go back.

UW Photo Comments as is typical of most ops in Anilao there were no rinse tanks on the boats however the crew took very good care of the cameras making sure they were covered between dives. There was one small rinse tank on shore they could use a bigger rinse tank.
