“Great place”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

My wife and I stayed at Pa-Lao-Yu for 5 nights in May for diving and sightseeing in El Nido. We arrived at 3:30am and one of the guys had waited for us in reception even though we were over 3 hours late due to the van from PP breaking down. We did a couple of days diving with Jhong, he was an awesome dive master and was so helpful throughout our stay including helping us organise our transfer back to PP. The accommodation is also good, nice and clean. The dive gear is good quality and well looked after. The guys also organised two island hopping trips for us. Watch out for Iane and Jhong and their bottle of rum upstairs in the evenings though... Hope to be back some day!

I stayed for one night this May at Pa Lao Yu. The room is an ample size for 2. The doors and walls are quite thin, but luckily we didn't have noisy neighbors so it was ok. This place is facing the main road and not the beach. The beach is around 100m by walking. You have to go through Greenview Resort to reach the beach, which is not bad, but also not that amazing. Aside from a comfy bed, toilet and breakfast, there's not really much about it. I put 4 stars because the people running the place are nice.

My dive buddy & I stayed at this place for the main purpose of diving. The scuba gear were all new and our dive guide was very thorough too. We did 5 dives, island hopping, sightseeing over two days and the team took care of all meals, transportation, dives, etc to ensure that we maximised our trip.
Lastly, when we left to Puerto Princessa - we had left behind a pair of shoes. The PLY team happily found the item and sent it through one of the shuttle service to PPS.
I would highly recommend their service for people who want to enjoy diving and stay in a care-free / friendly atmosphere.

I did not stay at the Resort but I was diving with Pa-Lao-Yu for a few days. A very good choice !
Everybody is very nice and kind at the shop, diving with them is a lot of fun and very safe. They know a lot about the diving places and really take care to protect them as well...They are good organized, nice boat and good lunch! I really enjoyed and can totally recommend the place!

I could not agree more with the previous comment: People definitely make the place at Pa-Lao-Yu Dive resort. If you are looking for a professional diving experience in a family like atmosphere, then Pa-Lao-Yu Dive resort is the place to go in El Nido. I felt more like hanging out with my friends than being a guest in a hotel, and have lots of wonderful memories of my time there. I hope I'll soon have the chance to see all of them again and can only recommend the place.

People make or brake a place, at Pa-Lao-Yu Dive Resort they definitely MAKE the place. A professional team of nice people who just love and know what they are doing. We saw some great stuff under water! The equipment is brand new and of a high quality. We stayed at a nice room in the back, with a great view of the ocean (sunset=brilliant).

We spent two weeks at Pa-Loa-Yu en loved every minute of it! Thanks guys!
That is why we say: Pa-Loa-YUUUHUUU!!!

Room Tip: Room at the back, have ocean view
