Southern leyte (sogod bay) is worth diving, although need to 3 hours travel from main airport. The sogod bay scuba resort room is clearn and comfort, if it is split air conditions is better. dive guide are good and try to meet your requirements. Resort staff are nice and help anything you need. Thank you all of you.

I had the good fortune to stay at Sogod Bay Scuba resort for 4 nights. My dive master Pedro Batestil was outstanding. Not only was he excellent as a scuba guide he is an exceptional photographer. The staff was great. Ocean view room. Food very tasty.

Spectacular diving with Pedro and Dave of Sogod Bay Scuba Resort. We were fortunate to have great weather during the low season, allowing us to dive often at the more remote locations. But I have to say that the pier night dive was one of my top 10 ever dives... and I've dived a lot! So many critters in a...

Dive with Pedro and Dave August 2016 and had a wonderful time. We did 2 dives in Napantau North, I dove with my older son 15 years old and we were with 2 more divers on that day. Pedro and Dave took care of us and made the dive as easy and carefree as possible. I would highly recommend this...

We love visiting here. It's small and unassuming, but such a pleasure to visit and stay. The staff are friendly and kind. Always happy to help. It's not a 5 star resort, but it's clean, comfortable and pretty. The food is outstanding and they cater for both local taste and international visitors. The pancakes and French toast are a must....

Stayed for 4 night. Lovely place with friendly people. Great diving, great dive masters and a very relaxed atmosphere. Rooms are simple but clean, light and spacious. They have a nice kitchen as well so you basically don't have to anywhere else.

Be it for macro lovers or wide angle enthusiasts, this place is a real gem. I am amazed how some people give a poor rating mainly because of poor internet connection or small tv screen... If a fast wifi is really important to you, I suggest you stay in a 5 star resort at the center of Cebu city... Remember...

First, keep in mind that you will NOT be staying on the beach side, but across the street from the beach. It's a nice enough apartment with I think 4 units, and it has a fairly nice, filtered view of the ocean. The room is spacious, but with a tiny TV, and most of the stations were foggy/snowy, no good...
