I stayed there for 4 nights. In superior room there is no window. And it's really terrible. Room is ok but I found much more better room for the same price (abwonder dive). I would stay here again. I made reservation on booking.com and then checked the rate on their site. Price on the site 2 times cheaper. Be attentive.

Visited Scandi Divers Jan 2017, and stayed there for a week. Lovely people, cozy atmosphere and skilled dive instructors. I took an underwater photography course with Roni who works at Scandi, which is highly recommendable if you want to take better photos under water. Very enthusiastic guy, who knows everything about photography ! Would love to visit Scandi again.

Stayed ten days at Scandi Divers, and it has been the best dive vacation EVER!! All the staff is so kind, professional and service minded. I can only say good things about this place concerning diving. Room rates are fair, clean, room standard is good! If I ever go to Philippines again, I would definitely go for Scandi Divers 👌

We spent 6 nights here in March 2017.... and simply loved it. Christine on reception (aka TinTin) was amazing, ensuring we had the best room for our budget, and throughout our stay was on hand to help, as to be fair all the Scandi team were. Dived with both Conan and Richard the PADI Instructors who were both superb, fun...

I stayed at Scandi's and LaLaguna Beach resort which is next door. Both places had clean but basic rooms. At Scandi's I had a pool side room. Chose these places to stay as I am a keen snorkeler and I was able to do some okay snorkelling straight off the beach. The beach is clean but many dive boats are...

I was visiting Manila and was totally bored of the city scene. Without knowing where to go, I asked the girl I was dating at the time who found this place. Scandi is tucked away in a land far-far-away. It's located on beautiful lagoon. Absolutely spectacular views, spare no expense. The best part of my trip was the scuba diving!...

Just came back from an open water course with ScandiDiver. I have been to many islands in the Philippines and I can say that ScandiDivers are far and away the best I have gone with. In and out of the water, they took care of me. Conon (our instructor) was the best. He made sure that we had everything we...
