Which lodging would you recommend - looking for a decent place to stay near your Dive Shop. Please advice. We're coming Nov. 17 - 20th
Savedra, Dive centre has accommodation behind the dive shop behind a gated area. it's more expensive than the rest of Town but still reasonable. However, there are alternate places on the beach side facing the ocean that are actually cheaper and have a view of the sun set. I was happy with the gated hut's but If I were to stay again I would find a place that faces the sea.
If you really want that is very close to the dive shop you can go to Savedra resort. It has a good balcony facing the sea and has a very nice sunset view
There are few accommodations near as well can be walking distance
Find a place to stay at travelbook.ph which is like Agoda but offers much cheaper room accommodations. I stayed at Johnnil's Tourist Inn for Php 900 aircon room for 2. It's a tricycle ride away from the shore. We just hired a tricycle driver to drop us off to and pick us up from Kawasan Falls and the drop-off point for the island hopping. The roundtrip boat cost Php 1500 inclusive of life vest and snorkeling gear. Don't be shy to ask the locals and haggle a bit.
We stayed at Savedra resort, which is opposite the dive shop and the dive site for sadines run is just right in front of our balcony. However, there also many other resorts on that same road which all in walking distance to the dive shop :-).
