We stayed here for 2 weeks in December 2016 over Christmas and New Year. Prior to arrival the communication with the team was very professional. They arranged all of our transfers to and from Cebu which were all stress free and seamless. The drivers were always there ahead of time, the handover between the taxi and the boat transfer to...

Stayed here for 9 nights with my family incl two kids. The hotel is situated on the wonderful Bounty beach, but at the very east tip so it is nice and quiet. Beautiful white sand and clean water at sea. No vendors on the beach. We had two bungalows near the beach just opposite from the restaurant The Craig House...

They have two types of rooms, I chose the smaller fan room. It was great. Very good and comfy beds, clean towels, toiletries, big bathroom with hot shower. The room I stayed...

My friend who is a technical diving instructor elsewehere recommended to do my TDI Deco Procedures and Advanced Nitrox combo with Evolution. Good tech training is worth traveling for a little and I wanted to see treshers sharks. Had only one morning reserved for treshers, but that was enough! Saw plenty and few came up close.

I have gone to Evolution every year for the past 3 years. The thresher sharks are great, but most important to me is quality instruction, professional dive staff (including boat crew) and comfortable environs. I have tried to dive at other resorts that claim to have tech diving experience, but usually it is just an instructor with some tech gear...

Did a dive trip with them, accommodations and diving were settled almost instantly. Staffs were very friendly and helpful towards providing top-notch service, and dive instructors there were knowledgable and always willing to provides inputs in topics and techniques regarding diving. 100% going back for more training and more fun!

I spent 5 days + 4 nights staying, diving, and eating at Evolution and it was all fantastic. I'll review the diving and restaurant in the appropriate sections, but as far as accommodation goes, Evolution was fantastic. Really clean, comfortable, spacious rooms on the beach. The location is perfect- accessible to Bounty Beach (it's at the end of the beach)...

“Would choose a fan room as you don't get much extra but an AC for double the price.”

“The best fan rooms are on the corners. If you go in Spring or Summer, I highly recommend aircon as it gets hot and not a lot of breeze.”
