We are 5 friends who are very familiar with the Philippines and had Apo Reef on our bucket list for quite a while! We were greeted by owner Michael on arrival and received and short briefing before heading to our wonderful sea view room. The sunset here at the resort is AMAZING and a few beers were had in the infinity pool before an early night. Up bright and early we headed out on the boat 3 hours to Apo Reef. 1st dive, shipwreck, nice and safe check dive but also stunningly beautiful, then on to another 9 dives loaded with sharks, rays, turtles, cuttlefish, tuna, trevally and octopus. Dive guide/instructor Sean was super happy all the time and made countless coffees for us, Chef Armando cooked up a storm for every meal, in fact it seemed like he cooked non-stop, all the crew worked their butts off the whole trip! We did a 2 night 3 day boat tour and it was just the perfect amount of time, I for one will definitely be back. I learnt that Apo Reef is the worlds 2nd largest reef, after the great barrier reef (and that's very expensive to do) so what are you waiting for?

Apo Reef Club is a small and very friendly dive resort. Very nice and comfortable beach front bungalows. Staff are all extremely helpful. Michael and his wife Mary go the extra mile to make their guests feel welcome and help them in any way they can. The overnight diving trip by Bangka boat to Apo reef Is very special. Facilities on the boat are very basic, but the diving is great. Especially if you are into the big stuff. Sharks and turtles on every dive! We would recommend this resort and diving with them to anyone!

Apo Reef is amazing and we loved the entire experience! My boyfriend and I got on the 2D1N expedition and did 8 dives, each one of them gorgeous. The management is professional with a good eye for details. The staff is just so sweet, we had a great holiday. I highly recommend ARC and would love to come back one day!

The true spirit of hospitality in a small, family run operation is a rare and wonderful thing, but you will find it at Apo Reef Club. To get there means taking the road less traveled, but its worth it if you want the best experience of doing Apo without enduring a long live a board from more remote locations. Its not luxury travel, but owners Michael and Mary do an outstanding job in delivering comfort, convenience, and value while at the property before and after the expedition. This set up is perfect for those wanting to enjoy up to 8 dives on this iconic reef. A clean Traditional Philippine Banca (Outrigger) boat is the vessel used for this trip. Set up nicely for ease of access for divers and snorkelers alike. Part of their success is due to a great staff of committed people. Sharippe the Dive Master is a quiet and considerate professional who gives his all to accommodate the various levels of divers on the trip. Armando the cook, and the rest of the on-board crew, are eager to please and they looked after the guests well. Food was “nothing fancy” but plentiful and well served. Water, tea, and coffee is free. Bring your own “special drinks”, but there are soft drinks and beers available at very reasonable prices. Ours was the first trip of the “Apo season” (October to May) and we encountered beautiful weather, calm seas, and great visibility. Lots of sharks and turtles, big fish, and am impressive wall We did not get the type of strong currents that are required for more “big stuff”, but what we saw certainly satisfied the group. Michael led the team and did an outstanding job in making it fun for all while ensuring safety. Its nice to see an owner that directly involved with an expedition. I’m just editing my videos and pictures, some attached now and later I will add a link to my youtube video. Thanks to Michael and Mary for a great trip.

We spend 5 nights at Apo Reef Club, two of those on the diving boat at Apo Reef. Michael and his whole team provided a great service durning our stay. We have been picked up directly at the harbor and already got first insights on the way to the resort. There we could enjoy a hearty welcome from the whole team, enjoy the first evening in the generous bungalow room with private terrace and sea view. For the planned two nights trip to the Apo Reef the next day we got a first briefing and a box from the well organized diving centre. The trip to the Apo Reef started next morning on the diving boat together with 10 additional guests, 3 dive guides and the boat crew. The boat has no luxury - it’s simple, clean and offers the relevant infrastructure for a relaxed two day trip. After three diving days at Apo Reef with a trip to the Apo Reef Island, we enjoyed two additional days at Apo Reef Club. Michael and team offered us during that time private trips to the surrounding highlands. Which was a great experience - thank you all - great customer service. Carmen & Arthur
