A boutique resort in the more quiet side of what is popularly known as Anilao, Batangas. Portulano Dive Resort provides snorkeling and scuba diving services to Anilao/Mabini, Bauan, Tingloy popular dive sites. Wake up to the gentle sound of the waves with rooms directly fronting the sea with a bedside view of the ocean. It's a great place for both divers, non-divers having lots of private space to lounge and relax. Design and architecture is inspired by mediterranean colors accented by local materials and artistry.

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.

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

Response from diveaddiction, Owner at Portulano Dive Resort
Responded 11 Apr 2019
Thank you for your response, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you also for understanding the limitations of being in a secluded area, water pressure being one of them. In our area getting & ensuring a good supply of water is complicated enough logistically and is top priority and part of conserving the water supply not just for ourselves but the villages nearby affects water pressure.

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
