We only stayed for one night and two days of diving, the home itself can only be reached by boat so is so peaceful, I loved the basic rustic feel of the rooms and even tho they are simple I think a lot of thought had went into the style and decoration. We slept in one of the air conditioned rooms, room No.1 and what a view to greet us when we woke up. As the weather was a little choppy we were a little restricted as to what dives we did so managed two boat dives and one shore dive. Would love to venture a little further afield to see more next time, but all in all I couldn't find any fault. Daisy was helpful and the dive crew were also amazing and helpful. Food was excellent which is included in the price.

I've been to Portulano twice, and I'm already looking forward to my return. Both times, me and my companions received amazing service. The staff went out of their way to provide us with the best experience, even if they didn't have to. The first time I went, I forgot my booties at the dive center. Not only did they respond promptly, they also gave me options for the most convenient way for me to get it back. Arnel, the owner, offered to bring it with him to Manila, but since I didn't have time to meet up, Daisy, the resort manager, couriered it to me instead - free of charge! I was so impressed. It would have been so easy for lesser professionals to not bother returning it to me, or to do so at my expense. Instead, they provided me a service above and beyond what was called for

Arlen, Carmela and their incredible staff provide a true oasis with a relaxed, down-to-earth waterfront resort completely isolated for a perfect get-away. It was my first time diving with my wife who has nearly 30 years of diving experience and I must say I was very spoiled to dive such a healthy and diverse coral reef. I was very nervous learning to dive and Arlen was the perfect instructor. The food was great and surroundings are not to be missed. Great for skin divers, snorkeling and scuba! Highly recommend Portulano Resort.

This happen to be my first time in the Philippines and I understand there are many hidden gems there. I have my friends recommendations to this private resort about 3 hours drive from Manila Airport. First glance to this resort base on online photos and the road trip, I wasn't expecting anything great until we arrive at the pick up pier to the resort. The pier with the transfer boat resting, it is simply beautiful to see. Perhaps this is a regular sight for the locals here but for us it is simply amazing. The boat ride takes around 10-15 minutes to arrive at the beautiful lagoon in front of Portulano. As someone who adores personalised service and rooms, this private resort isn't my regular resort to stay but the service which makes you feels like this is home is different
