Comments This is just an addition to the Panagsama Beach diving.
Most resorts in the Philippines ( except New Eve's Kiosk) ask me to send divers. And, the mgr. or owner say that the leader of 6 to 10
divers go free for lodging and diving.
One owner even offered to pay for a bus or van from the airport to his resort.

And, the tourist board of the Philippines in San Francisco can help you with quotes of resorts ( say) around Anilao (near Batangas) or say resorts such as Club Paradise, Sabang Inn and SeaHorse resorts at Sabang Bay on Puerto Galera.
The Acaia resort did cost thousands yrs. ago; but, the Sun... resort next to it had a much cheaper cost since the dorm was empty; food nearby was only a few dollars compared to $25 for dinner
