We travelled the Philippines for 5 weeks and this was one of our favourite stops. We had not originally planned to visit Southern Leyte but we changed our plans last minute to stay there over the New Year & fit in some diving and Whaleshark spotting.
The owner,resort staff, dive and boat crew were all really helpful and acommodating and the room we stayed in (attached to the restaurant) was huge with a masisve bathroom and hot shower.
The best experience here however (even better than snorkelling with our first whaleshark) was the night dive at 'The Pier. This is a MUST for any diver with loads of cool creatures - octupus, cuttlefish, giant frogfish, ghost pipefish, stargazers, seahorses, decorator crabs, hundreds of hunting lion fish and loads of other critters all on one dive!
This resort is a must if you're looking to dive around Sogod Bay.
