We had a great time at Liquid! The STAFF is phenomenal....Zoe Latimer is so sweet and funny and helpful. The front desk staff (especially Ness!) is very helpful too.... The DM's (Jun and Alan) we had were so good at what they do...pointing out the teeniest, tiniest, CUTEST underwater creatures ever! we also loved how they have a dry-erase board to give us very THOROUGH pre-dive plans...the most thorough dive briefings we have ever had in fact. We enjoyed Apo Island. We also loved how many choices we were given...we can do one dive, two dives, three dives, night dive etc. all on our own or with other people. I had a DM all to myself one day. small groups are always nice, and a change from what im used to (LARGE groups...ugh). The staff that assists the DM's are also so so helpful. they would never let me carry a thing on my own! We also took our enriched air class with Berlinda who is a wonderful instructor. The accomodations are comfortable. Liquid is advertised as a Flashpacker's resort and it was perfect for our needs (a couple travelling, on a budget since this was the first of three stops in PI and Palau). we are a very simple couple and care more for the diving aspect than the ammenities a place has to offer. that being said, the only reason I am docking a star is because the food at Liquid was a bit too salty for me. i prefer eating local food when on vacation and the Filipino options I had did not taste like home, nor did it taste like the restaurants around Dumaguete. The cab ride to town is 350 pesos by trike or 700 pesos by cab ONE WAY so we spent way too much time and money going back and forth for lunch and dinner. There is no fridge in the rooms and because they don't allow food in the rooms we spent too much time going back and forth for our meals. The drinks and bar snacks we did love though! Other people loved the lunch and dinner so it may be just because I am going to marry into a Filipino family and prefer my food a certain way ;) and they will accomodate vegetarian diets. all in all, i loved this place and would certainly go back.
