We booked our first new year weekend tat Dive and Trek to get away from our hectic Christmas and NYE activities. We were promptly picked up by our banka for a 20 min ride to the resort, and were greeted warmly by the staff. Our room was comfortable, although, I must say the hike to the third floor was a challenge for my aging knees. The food was excellent and entrees prepared for each meal completed each other - filipino style. Shout out to Florence and Arlyn and rest of the crew who were attentive to our needs and made our stay a very pleasant one. We also did an intro dive, which was very convenient. All equipment were onsite and our dive buddies were very patient with us. Cheers, Dive and Trek and keep up the excellent service. We will be back.

We were there on Jan.10+11 2020, and can't complain about the diving or the food. However I almost fainted when I paid our bill. The basic rate is 5000Pesos/day for accommodation incl diving, which seems ok when you consider 3 dives a day, so you come to about 1500 Pesos/dive. However on top of this comes a divemaster fee which is just as high, so your bill doubles to about 3000 Pesos/dive. And this is just way too high!!! Besides I have a suspicion about the beds. I have lots of bites on my body since we were there, and on spots where you normally don't get a mosquito bite. So I suspect that there were bugs in the bed!

I highly recommend families, friends and couples to stay in this wonderful resort. We came here as walk-ins yet we were provided with utmost hospitality and warmth. The service was amazing as the staff were very attentive to your needs. You literally don't have to say anything. They will immediately provide you with refreshments, offer you fresh towels after swimming/diving and serve you delicious food. We stayed in the high-end loft room which offered a lovely view of the sea and the sunset. It was just perfect for a quick weekend dive getaway. Make sure to say hi to the manager Ms. Arlyn Enriquez, we had a good chat over dinner and were treated like family. It almost felt like she's your aunt, welcoming you to her home. 😊❤️🤗

First, they came and picked me up at my hotel in Manila with private vehicle for almost nothing and then drove me back in Manila after my stay. The road, despite the heavy manila traffic at the beginning, was very scenic and the driver was like a tourist guide, providing me with a lot of local information. On the way back we took a different road, around Taal, and even stopped in some local coffee shops for tasting and buying local coffee. The accommodation was more than expected. My room had view on the sea, (I think they all have view), nice balcony, air conditioning, also very clean and stylish. The food was also great, they've cooked only local food, and with fresh fruits. I told them I liked the Philippine lechon (which is like suckling pig) and they've cooked it for me. This was my real local food experience. The diving was also great, great healthy corals, it was the first time I could see giant clams. There are a lot of things to see in many sites and easily accessible from the beach or the dock, all around the resort. The whole experience had been so good that I extended my stay. This is an amazing vacation spot or even short getaway from Manila. Great thanks to all the team. Special thanks to Arlyn, Leisa and Jacob.

Ive been going to Dive and Trek for the past 5 years since i learned to Dive there. Over the past few years it has gone through some management changes, which resulted in a poor experience as staff tried to readust to what was asked of them, and management who clearly didn't know what Customer Service was all about. That said, the past year the place has come back to what it was, a great getaway from the City, local enough to drive to, and remote enough to get away from everything! Food - The food here is great, buffet style from fresh fish, to local soups and fresh vegetables. They have a reasonably well stocked bar, but you can bring your own drink for a modest fee, and softdrinks and buffet are included in the overnight package. Accommodation - some of the accommodation is a little dated, but the AC works, the showers are hot and the beds are soft. If you want a more upmarket room, just pay a little extra for the newly built white homes they have built into the side of the hill. Diving - Dam - one of the best dive spots in the philippines for micro work, great mix of everything from fish to turtles, you will easily find Nemo, not to mention the swirling mass of thousands of Jack fish. Dive and Trek is a Marine Sanctuary, as such, they also support cleaning and preserving of the coast, not to mention the area they have setup to grow the Giant clams (a clam nursery? ). I cant recommend the place more if you want to get away, but be warned, cell/mobile signal is poor there, so your office may not be able to contact you all the weekend!!! :)
