Just returned from Magic Oceans where we spent a fantastic week diving every day in a combination of boat dives and house reef dives. The resort has been designed and built to be perfect for divers. I can't recall a better equipped dive centre complete with so many rinse tanks for each part of your dive kit; showers, area for dive briefing, personal area for storing your kit and large posters of all manner of marine life so you can identify what you've seen on a dive. Just a few steps away from the house reef and the boats as well. There is a review on this site that says that the diving is expensive in comparison to others in the Philippines. Well - what you get is impeccable service. The boats (three of them), are spacious and really comfortable with lots of shade if

Thanks for your great review. It's true that some people compare us to cheap local shops. But we're happy that you understand and have experienced that we offer a different product all-in-all. You were so lucky with that massive school of pilot whales! We still talk about it. Indeed you spelt my name slightly wrong (supposed to be Eef :-p ) Warm regards and hope to see you back.

My wife and I felt well looked after at Magic Oceans. The resort is stunning: beautiful landscaping, pool and bungalows, the garden flowers pretty and dive centre well planned. The diving was not spectacular but it was good overall. There is a new jetty under construction to enable easier access to the dive boat. The boat was comfortable but not as well configured as others we've been on. No individual box to stow kit in making it more difficult to check kit pre-dive, ensure all is on the boat before departure and finally to leave kit in when between the dives. Food choice at the resort was good and set evening 3 course meals were very nice. The restaurant did however lack attention to detail on occasions, lost in translation possibly (e.g. daily overcooked eggs,

Just come back from a week at magic Oceans and absolutely loved it. The bungalow was fabulous, the site was immaculate with the grounds, pool and beach cleaned daily. But most of all the Staff were just fantastic. Diving was varied and we'll run, the dive boats were spacious, clean and in great condition. The dive centre was spacious with an area for each diver and their kit. Plenty of room to get ready and big dunk tanks for when you come back. All in all a great site and we had a great weeks diving. I would recommend this to anyone at any level of diving.

We stayed in both the Magic resorts during the course of a three week holiday and both were superb. The diving was fantastic (certainly better than the weather). The dive team are great and the staff at both resorts could not do more for you. Both resorts are small and fairly remote so you spend a lot of time there, very relaxing. The boats are great and the diving is superb.

Right from the moment we stepped off the plane, the staff at Magic took over starting with the driver organized to pick us up who even stopped for us to buy some beer on the way. Once we arrived at the resort the staff were all very friendly and attentive to our needs. Our stay was absolutely beautiful! The food was delicious and always plenty to go around, if you didn't like anything the staff would go out of their way to change things around to suit your needs. The dive center was professionally run and the local guides are all dive masters who are friendly and knowledgeable and their ability to find some of the most amazing sea life and small creatures is excellent. We booked a dive with the Whale sharks which is well worth a visit. The whole resort is clean and well kept.
