I went to the Philippines to dive,but without any great expectations---following research on the 'Net. I was pleasantly surprised--the diving,especially the "macro" was incredible--a lot to do with my superb guide Rico.
An extra bonus was the hotel---I am used to pretty basic accommodation when diving,but this was top notch.Very clean and comfortable,terrific facilities--multi channel satellite tv,and a small swimming pool(why would you need bigger,the sea is 5 yards in front of hotel!!),pool table,two bars and restaurant on site--for a small hotel,I doubt it could be beaten. It was so good,I extended my 9 day package to a fortnight!! The staff could not be more friendly and helpful---in fact,I had to ask the room cleaner to not change bed linen and towels EVERY day(doing my bit for the environment). Another bonus,for me,was that it was a short distance away from the hubbub of Sabang town--although only a 1/4 hour walk or more usually a boat ride(always readily available).
I would definitely return,and would recommend it to any other divers--or just holidaymakers.
