Beware of verbally agreement, always have miscommunication in this hotel... Agoda we can book at 1900+ but we book by email due to we need to do down payment of diving... Fine, we pay 2500 using email... different 500+ per night, we absorb it... since not big amount yea... 1. Communication between email booking personal and dive master pretty poor. 2. Next day, We wake up at 3am, and ready to go at 4am... end up captain assistant late... after we wait for 1 hour, the captain assistant not even here... luckily the dive master and captain willing to bring us to dive with limited manpower (appreciate the divemaster service given to us) 3.On last day, we went for day tour and we expecting late check out, we checked with one of the staff, she told us 200 per hour... we think bcoz of poor business due to virus, they drop the price... then we are ok with the 200 per hours.. once we check out, the price magically change to 300 as per rules stated in the room... We got nothing to say, due to the rules stated php 300.... so, we late 5 hours and we need to pay PHP 1,500 we felt scammed~ Not about money... its just the feel is sooo bad... 4. Toilet not providing standard toiletries. We expect more from PHP 2.500 per night hotel. 5. Public toilet door unable to lock (broken) Female wont be able to use it~ 6. The pool is dirty, full of sands. 7. Room is clean.

This is my 2nd time to stay with Baywatch Dive Resort. I have been to Bohol a few times before but going back here makes me feel more at home. We stayed for 5 dives and had some of the best burgers, good service, and awesome diving.

The twin room price is 2500 with breakfast, the resort is infront of the beach and beside hennan. We like the room coz its clean and the be linens smells fresh and new. They offer island hopping and diving services. Island hopping starts at 6am because it is the only time that you can see dolphins. Tour duration is 6hrs! Whew.. private boat is 2500. Gears are not included. Pool? Its 10 feet. Good thing we ask before jumping hahaha Pool is not that clean, there are sands on it, water is not clear. Wifi? No wifi! Tv? Yes, there is a cable tv. Food? Just fine. Try other resto nearby. But its really expensive, hehe How to get there? From panglao airport there are van that offers their service. How much? It depends on the driver. Theres a few taxi, but you have to wait.

My girl friend and I did our first diving experience there. The instructor was quite unfriendly and I really had the feeling he was only interested to get the cash. Was our first diving experience so we had to assimilate the basic but we could feel he was loosing patience when explaining l things in the pool... The diving in the sea was cool but my girl friend didn’t dive in the end as she got afraid and couldn’t overcome her fair (first time she tried so these things can happen). When the instructor realized on the boat that she would no longer dive - his only reaction was: “what a waste of money and time” immediately making clear that he would not consider any price discount (we paid 4500 PHP each which includes 2 dives in sea of approx 30-45 min each). I found it very very uncommercial!! Furthermore the instructor promised me a Certificate attesting my induction allowing me to skip induction course in other centers even abroad (in a certain time line) if I want to keep diving. When reminding him to issue such doc at the end - he said oh this will instead be sent to me by e-mail as this needs to go first via Sydney - all lie and he didn’t even have my e-mail address. So I gave it by principle but I knew I will never got it and indeed I have received nothing yet even though it’s been a week now... No really a place to avoid!! There are plenty of other diving centers there (close to each others) and I am sure they will offer you much better experience!

Simple but very worth it . the room was so nice and clean so homey feeling , amazing location. The housekeeping was very reliable and fast , but we waited for how many minutes for our breakfast to arrive. All in all , it was all worth it.

Dives were affordable and well run. Dive master Dennis (please excuse spelling) was engaging and relaxed. Departed and returned in good time and all the other staff were very friendly. Would recommend this dive company- not to mention the included lunch was pretty good as well!

The rooms are simple but has a very elegant design & lighting that can make you feel more relaxed. staff smiles & greets at you, everytime you pass by at the front office. Also the housekeeping service is very good & fast. they also have a restaurant at the beach opens every night and it's a must! you'll never regret what you paid once you've tasted their foods. I have no regrets staying on this hotel for a week. Great price for a comfortable stay.

we spent 5 nights in the resort with a very accommodating and attentive staff. for a reasonable price of 1900 pesos we were able to experience 5 star hotel feels. the AC was great, the bed sheets are tidy and most especially the room is just. we also tried diving in Balicasag Island, the dive master is very knowledgeable, patient and friendly. and barbeque on the boat was fantastic btw!!! their vegetable kebab, tiger prawns and lobster is also on top of my every day list, they're just so fresh, tasteful, has umami and smells good. so from a satisfied customer, you should really try their service. everything is worth it!and they also offer free flowing iced tea when you stay in their resort :D

We had dinner here on the beach for two nights. Food was good, reasonably priced. But they seem to be quite popular so you might have to wait for a long time. And it was a little too dark with the light they provided.
