Wow.... what a great place to spend time. Good room, small resort, good food, cold beer and amazing diving. Not to many tourist and diving companies. The crew really wants you to relax and enjoy the time. No rush and no worries πŸ™πŸ˜„

my wife and I came to magic oceans for the first time in 2015. i reviewed this resort back then. some photos were posted. in 2015, there were not so many guests. the resort was pretty new to diving community. coming here in at the end of 2018, I see that the resort has constant roll over of guests. it seems like the resort runs in almost full capacity. however, the operation is very smooth. the resort is still pretty quiet and relaxing. I post some photos. the resort is very well kept. there are more professionals running the resort, especially the dive shop. our room is in perfect condition. food is always excellent. I do recommend this resort and another magic resort.

We spent a week at the resort in late October and it was spectacular. However I will caution that the resort is not for everyone. If you are seeking a place where you can partake in nightly entertainment, party, easy access to shops and stores and interact with lots of different people, this resort would not be for you. For fellow travelers like us that are seeking an opportunity to get away, relax, unwind and dive it is absolutely perfect. I think overall this resort was the most relaxing trip we have had. The daily interaction with the owner and resort manager is nice as you know they are in tune with the resort as well as guest needs. The resort is located roughly 2 hours from Tagbilraun (don’t judge based on distance as it took us two hours to reach the resort

20 People from our dive club spent a week diving, relaxing and sightseeing at this resort. We had a fantastic time. The staff, food, and diving were excellent. We were well taken care of. We had massages, pedicures, a band with dancing which included the staff dancing with us. They made us feel like family. We were delayed in Cebu one night after the Ferry was canceled due to weather. They made calls and accommodations & transport to a hotel for us in Cebu then picked us up again the next day, A class operation you can't go wrong with.

I struggle with my review score, but I think the positives did outweigh the negatives. The resort takes a long time to get to once you are in the country. The resort is small so that's very nice. It has great bungalows, decent internet, its clean and the restaurant menu is very nice. The food is good, the fresh fruits are fantastic, and they have a pretty full bar. The drinks are very inexpensive. You can also get duty free at the airport if you like having a special drink in your room. I love the open dining area and how nice it is that you can sit with others at the resort and get to know people on a daily basis. The diving is good, lots to see. But there are some things that they need to improve on. The boats are NOT equipped with any medical supplies, oxygen,

Thanks for your review. Like Tripadvisor states, reviews are personal opinions and in general we respect opinions of our guests and try to learn from the reviews. But every now and then there are things written down that are factually incorrect, and we feel the need to correct the information given in the review. - There is absolutely without a doubt, ALWAYS first aid, medical supplies and emergency oxygen on board. - We mix our own nitrox from medical oxygen tanks. - All nitrox tanks are labelled, normal air is not. - Every single tank is checked for pressure before it's taken out of the filling area. We studied the rest of your review and we will evaluate it with the staff to improve our service. Regards, Magic Oceans Team
