Peters Dive Resort
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Padre Burgos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 March 2014

Budget accommodation at Peters Dive is hard to beat, with 2, 3 and 4 bed diver's dorms, each room with its own ocean-side terrace overlooking the very attractive Sogod bay. Add to that some wonderful dive sites unaffected by the 2013 typhoon. The night dive under the jetty was particularly good, simply astonishing in terms of variety and quantity of macro life. Indeed the diving was the best I experienced in 12 months diving across the Philippines, and the dive guides were excellent. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, though the food was a bit basic it was adequate. I enjoyed my 8 days stay immensely, and will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: The 3 bed dorm is the best, roomier and with a bigger terrace than the others

Diving during New Year. It's only a month after Haiyen Typhoon hit Tacloban but this resort has no effect. Only that we had to reroute from Manila-Tacloban to Manila-Cebu and took a long sail trip (5hr) in sleeping pod. Resort Manager helped us reroute and contact airline that changed our flight without notice.

First I got Condo room with large balcony on the top floor but later change to beach front bungalow because air conditioned broke. After I report unfunction air conditioned they are coming to fix it promptly and later notice that it cannot be fixed. So they moved us to another room and brought new one right the same afternoon. Only one fall back is the spring mattress. It is too soft for us.

Foods provided at every meals are tasty almost similar taste to Thai food. Dive sight is eye-catching with clear blue water and corals. Dive Boat equiped with restroom that is very comfortable to 2 dives trip in the morning/afternoon.

Really recommend for wide angle photograper.

Hi there, I would like to officially thank you Peter's dive resort and staff. They helped us a lot since before the trip started. We got information we needed from them and recommendation to what we need to know. We appreciated a lot when Cebu Pacific cancelled our flight just a few days before our trip and we informed the resort and asked them to help. They responded immediately and did everything so that we can make the trip happen. As a trip organizer, I felt so good that we have a sincere back up. They helped us reroute the flight, booked the ferry tickets and made all the things smooth. Travelling to the resort this time was full of new experiences and we had a chance to see how local people traveled.

At the resort, everything was perfect, the staff are friendly and helpful. Food was nice, rooms were clean. Everyone loved to be there and they had kind of perfect holidays. I really appreciated and did not know how to express enough thank for all the things you guys there have done for us. It surely one of the memorable trips in our diving life.

We will surely recommended your resort and once the situation with the flight is getting better, we will plan to go back again.

i was staying at peter's as typhoon yolanda (haiyan) barreled down on leyte. i managed to get the last ferry off leyte, to surigao from maasin (didn't really care where it went, as long as it was south), at 3.30 am, 24 hours before the full strength of the storm bore down. the staff at peter's was very, very accommodating, in every way possible. a special shout out for this reason alone.
oh yea, they do a good job with the diving and rooms, too! trips to napantao and limasawa are frequent, even without a full boat. a big plus. i look forward to returning in several months.

I am from the US and also been diving around the World with group of friends, and I am into a look around for good resort that I can make recommendations to come back to dive with. Apparently, since I stumble into Peter's Dive resort and came in for a lunch and to dive, hoping I could make at least 2 dives............ whoa! no dive master available and the front desk lady was not really that friendly, food sucks! Sausages were over cooked and dry..... Except ! the Dive Master after an hour arrived from another dive arrived........And diving is so pricey,,,,,,, we drove 164 kilometers to experience this? not good.... I will not recommend.......

Hi Stingray521,

Thank you for your review and we would like to ask apology for make you wait before you can do the dive. First, we are busy during that time and no available dive master. Normally, our dives starts around 0830 hours doing two dives and get back to the resort around 1330 to 1400. If you call us in advance or send us email before you come down here for sure we will have one dive master waiting for you to assist you for your dive. When you said cold reception lady did you mean that thing because she could not give you a discount for 1 or 2 dives which is very unfair for us. Paying the dive master and maintaining diving stuff are really expensive. For sure, being a IDC Staff instructor as you mentioned you will understand that kind of matters. We even just let you and your friends to use our swimming pool without permission to avoid any confrontation.Even our BOSS picking up the trash you left in the pool. Our pool is only available for staying guests. We would like to apologize as well if our Chef overcooked the sausage. You should give advise to our waitress or waiter and we will change it at no extra cost. Once again, thank you and we will do our best to handle this kind of situation next time.

There were only a few people staying when we were there, it was perfect because it meant the dives were really tailored to us. Such a picturesque place, it's really special to go to a place and stay in a room a metre from the waters edge and not be charged an arm and a leg. It's peaceful and quiet and the diving is spectacular - untouched coral, clear water and fish in abundance. If you go between April and June you might even be lucky enough to see a Whale Shark!

Room Tip: I don't think you can go wrong, they're all in a great location!
