Reviewed 13 July 2014

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Mike’s for 3nights.
Everything in this place was amazing! Our room was very clean. Even the hallway was spotless – you can actually walk barefoot. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. It’s the kind of place where you just want to sit all day – relax and enjoy the peacefulness. We enjoyed every meal we had – I highly recommend their famous Burrito.
Mike and Joanne are AWESOME! They made sure that we’re ok and enjoying our stay. Thank you so much for your hospitality. It was a great experience and our stay in your beautiful home has a big impact in our decision to move to Dumaguete. We’ll see you again soon!

Room Tip: It's nice to stay on the 2nd floor so you'd get a better view of the beach.

This was a great chance to relax and enjoy amazing diving or my wife and me.

The resort is very clean and modern while still maintaining a rustic local feel. The rooms had individual air conditioners so could be adjusted to our comfort perfectly. Do make sure you bring conditioner if you have long hair to detangle after the dives. The common dining and bar area was perfect for our meals and evening drinks and the view was beautiful. The hotel staff were very accommodating and the service exceptional. I highly recommend having whatever the daily special is but everything we had off the menu was delicious as well.

The diving is top notch and our guides and boat crew took care of everything and pointed out the abundance of marine life. In 12 dives I saw as many critters as I've seen on the 1000 dives before. Come for the macro life such as frogfish, seahorses and nudibranchs but make sure you don't miss the rays, turtles, octopuses, and of course whale sharks.

The whale shark snorkel trip was great to be so near the largest fish in the world and is worth the fee. The dives on the nearby island afterwards were also amazing.

In all this was a great relaxing trip with friendly service and every amenity we could have wanted. When we come back to Dumaguete we will be staying here again.

Nice rooms, beautiful garden en wonderful view over the ocean. Mike is a great host, and is doing everything to make his customers happy. We participated to different trips which were all very worth it! We saw plenty of fish, coral, turtles, we swom with whalesharks... WAW
Food is rather basic but not bad. The only remark : If Mike is doing the utmost to make you feel good, we didn't have the impression that he could always communicate his sense of service to his staff. If it were for Mike, Service is a 5, but for his staff, it's a 3, which is ok but not excellent (except for the diving guide, who clearly also merits a 5).

This is definitely a place to be in Dauin, Negros Oriental!
We went here as a group of day-trippers; booked for a complete package inclusive of transfers to and from Dumaguete, Apo Island tour, buffet lunch and a lot more freebies! (thanks to Mike and Joy for the good heart) - surely a value for money.
I can't say anything, but everything is great about the resort and the tour!; the food and service are of the highest quality (so far in Negros Island) The resort is small, quiet, clean, well maintained and very private. If I would give a score to the service vans provided, it would be 2 (5 being the highest) - the vehicles are bit old and rusty.
Looking forward to try the resort room soon! It seems cozy!

Room Tip: The resort has 8 rooms; the pool side rooms seems better..
