I was torn between 3 and 4 star mainly due to the overly laid back dive center attitude. However, the hotel staff and room pushed it up to 4 stars.
I have been diving in PG for years and my normal hotel/dive center was fully booked, so I took a chance by staying at LLBC. I must admit the hotel beat my expectations.
I stayed in a sea view room, which had a great sea view (right on the water). It was actually a nicer room than my normal hotel. Bigger, brighter, better views. The hotel staff is very friendly and that makes a difference to me. Kudos to Mildred (front desk) who really was accommodating and helpful with my last minute booking, including private airport transfers from Manila to the hotel.
On the other hand, I found the dive center a bit too laid back for my liking. I had to ask repeatedly for a crate to store my kit. Which was then just left in the middle of dive center. I am a bit of a prima donna and perhaps spoiled from other dive resorts where your kit is setup and ready for you in the morning. I was surprised that the morning of my first dive ... my kit was just sitting in its crate still. Just not the level of service in general that I have become accustomed to.
I will def. be staying at LLBC again, the hotel is really a star in PG/Sabang. However, I will do my diving at my usual dive center where I can get the service I expect.
