My husband and I spent four nights at Atlantis in Puerto Galera and enjoyed every moment. We are still fairly new divers and the dive masters were incredibly flexible and very understanding. The transfer from Manila was remarkably smooth and comfortable (we ended up having a private boat!), and the welcome was very warm and friendly.
You can dive 4-5 times per day if you want, but we generally had the energy for 2-3 only. There isn't much to do besides diving, but the resort does have a spa with really affordable prices. We ended up getting 3 massages and I treated myself to a manicure and pedicure.
The food was fantastic. Absolutely delicious. The chefs can even make things to order, if needed. We enjoyed every meal at the resort given we bought that as part of our package.
For the avid underwater photographer, there is a photography room, and you can also rent an underwater camera if you don't have one.
I really hope we can come back. We went in mid-August, right before the high season began. The weather wasn't too bad and it practically felt like we had the resort to ourselves. What a fantastic vacation! The only improvement I can think of is to install mosquito nets in the rooms. We did have at least mosquito here and there, which made it difficult to rest easy.
