If you're not a diving enthusiast but wants a nice place to stay in Dumaguete City, you'll like this. Rooms are individual cottages made of native materials, and all are facing the ocean, that's almost all there is to it in terms of "nice". The room rates are pricey but lacks the essential amenities, it has no cable TV, no... More

Kim, We are very disappointed not to have met your expectations. Unfortunately as you and your partner had initially booked a Air Conditioned room for a single night through an online agency and decided to extend your stay with us we were unable to offer you the same room type. Unfortunately this can happen during peak season. As noted the... More

My friend had won a four-night/six dive stay at Liquid. And frankly, when we arrived, I thought we had been had. Imagine my surprise to wake up for our first morning of diving to a veritable bamboo paradise.

I went to Dauin for two days of diving in the well known muck paradise that are around Dauin. The dives were incredible whit all the weird creatures that we found as seahorses, robust ghost pipefish, numerous Nudibranches, seamouth, tons of shrimps and some really cool mantis shrimps.

Me and my husband rented a hut without air con, which was perfectly enough as it is on the sea front you get a nice cool breeze coming in and the fan is more than enough to keep the room cool at night.

I selected Liquid Dive as a place for my husband and I to become Open Water certified, and we were not disappointed. This place is a 5 star resort, yet quite affordable, and both the grounds and the accommodations are stunning. It's sort of like a private little Eden for divers. The atmosphere is very chill, and all the guests... More
