The resort is picturesque, clean and comfortable. The staff members are quite attentive and eager to help. The meals are authentic, fresh, and delicious. The dive master is very knowledgeable and patient. This is a perfect diving getaway.
Great experience. Good communication from the staff. Got in two nice dives. The property looks like it belongs in the area and was super clean. The food was pretty decent with the pizza's being the highlight. The staff was polite and attentive to our needs.
Just a day trip for us this time, just to have a couple of dives and a nice lunch. as usual the crew there are outstanding and very helpful. The local reef is a nice gentle dive to finish off a wonderful day
The main goal was to get the kids PADI certified and to refresh my own skills. But wow did I get so much more. While this is certainly a diver's paradise resort (great set up for gear and camera care) it was just as valuable and enjoyable for the non-diver in our group. Snorkling at the house reef and opportunities to use other water -related fun equipment (though, in fairness, no one did during our 3 days - too busy being non busy reading, lounging, napping). The best was the care we received from the staff. The dive staff were helpful and knowledgeable. Elmer was a fantastic spotter, even of tiny creatures like nudi brancs and skeleton shrimp. Daisy helped us with every concern. All meals offered a good selection that all of us could enjoy. The best were the shakes we could…
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. The rooms, common spaces and pool are decorated beautifully with comfortable chairs and hammocks dotted around to relax and chill on! The staff are friendly, helpful and on hand to help with any needs. Diving is beautiful in this area and on their house reef we saw many interesting corals and fish (including an electric clam!) I would highly recommend this resort, I cannot wait to return
