A boutique resort in the more quiet side of what is popularly known as Anilao, Batangas.

I came to Portulano with a group of friends from Manila. I have been to quite a few dive resorts along the coast in Anilao/Batangas and was expected Portulano to be similar. How wrong I was! Portulano is beautiful for divers and people looking for a retreat from the busy city.

To get to this resort, you must arrive by boat, which is about 15 mins from the end of the road. Getting to the resort was a piece of cake. We got there and Daisy assigned us to a bottom floor rood. Very nice room but soon it was obvious that the AC would not handle the room

Response from diveaddiction, Owner at Portulano Dive Resort
Responded 14 Jul 2018
Thanks for your feedback, the AC in the room you first stayed in is due for replacement and upgrade during the off season: August 2018, same with the mattresses. Just a note that the resort is not strictly just for divers, but a great place for skin divers, snorkelers, paddle boarders and kayaks, where there is abundant marine life to discover. But yes, not for your typical beach experience where there is a sandy beach you can wade in.

Experience 3.5/5 The resort is for people who are looking to experience a relaxing getaway while learning to master Diving. Though I did not try my hand at diving and do not have any experience at all, I can see that the resort comes quite equipped for the basic necessities
