Value
Our resort has been designed with the modern traveler in mind and we pride ourselves on offering excellent facilities and service at a very reasonable rate. All accommodation at Liquid are in the form of individual beach front cottages, set on a secluded section of beach in the Barangy of Bulak, Dauin. Our 1KM winding access road takes you away from the noise of the highway and makes it hard to believe that we are only a 20 minute drive from Dumaguete City. Featuring 2 outdoor pools, Liquid Dive Resort is located in Dauin, 7.8 mi from Dumaguete. The resort has an in-house PADI dove center, a coffee shop, a restaurant with a poolside bar, and a games area with pool table. Liquid Dive Resort offers PADI courses from beginners to professional level. Snorkeling and land tours can also be arranged upon request. Dumaguete Airport is approximately 9.9 mi from the property. We speak your language!

We were scheduled to stay at Liquid Dumaguete 03/14 through 03/21. We arrived on the 14th to be greeted promptly at the airport by our van driver. When we arrived at the resort, the check in was quick and a welcome drink was there for us. The rooms are very well laid out and very clean. The staff was amazing and paid attention to every detail. Tom (the manager) kept us up to date with closures and issued that we may experience due to COVID-19. He met us several times each day to provide updates on airport closings and transportation issues. Tom was working with other resort owners to stay abreast of travel situations. On Tuesday, Tom informed us that the local resorts in cooperation with the Philippine Department of Tourism had arranged for us to go to Cebu via a Coast Guard ship and then eventually travel from Cebu to Manila to transfer home before all airports were closed. Tom was amazing in coordination to make sure all his guests made it to Cebu and eventually Manila. We cannot thank him enough. This resort is amazing. The landscaping and groundskeeping are top notch. Everything is so clean and well kept. The food was absolutely delicious. We went diving with them for two days and the dive crew were knowledgeable and attentive. We were scheduled to stay seven nights at Liquid Dumaguete, but were limited to only three nights due to the virus impact. There is no doubt we will return and will be brining more friends with us. Our stay there was one of the best experiences we have ever had, even though it was cut short. Thanks Tom and the Liquid Dumaguete Crew!. See you soon!

We left Dumaguete City because we found it to be a typical tourist trap with tourist pricing. So we ventured to Dauin which is 30 minutes outside of Dumaguete. We heard that there were beach side resorts there. A good advice is to travel with a local. It can be easy to get lost.

When we came upon the resort, to be honest it didn't look like much. So we wanted to check the rooms out first as well as the dining menu.

We entered within the walls of the property. It was as if we were transported to a tropical paradise. These words cannot do it justice. It was so beautiful.

The rooms were all single dwellings made of bamboo. But it had airconditioning. As soon as I saw the room, I said "sold!".

The dining experience is casual. The food was native cooking. It tasted good. I am an American and advise to get more than one dish is you're hungry. The portions in the Philippines tend to be on the small side.

+ Small but nicely laid out resort. My accommodation was a detached villa which was clean but basic. Food is good with a fairly decent menu. The staff were friendly and polite. Apo island in my opinion was overrated as a dive destination It was pretty coral but not much big stuff around. Dauin coast diving was great for macro and the dive guide was good at helping find all the critters.

- The water in the accommodation was a strange orange colour. We never left for our dives on time it was a bit chaotic with staff seemingly unable to co-ordinate loading tanks and gear for the morning dives, I believe the owner was away at the time which may have been the reason.

Great wifi, clean sheets
However rooms were overpriced, dirty bathroom, someones black hairs in the sink, brown metal smelling water. Bathroom stank badly, toilet didn’t flush at all.
Staff seemed friendly, however some of them didn’t speak english and gave us wrong information in regards the restaurant opening hours and we 9 people left without dinner. My friend also got dead bird fell in her sink, which scared her like crazy!
Tom - person who runs the places wasn’t keen to fix anything, seemed arrogant and didn’t care at all.

Upon check-out, your group of 9 guests threatened a bad review unless a discount was given. This was refused and thus you have written your review. This has been reported to booking.com and you have been blacklisted there.

A very eco-friendly resort. The faucets and showers are all salt water (often an orange color with sand) but the bar will give you plenty of bottled tap water whenever you ask.

The scenery on the outside is wonderful and would completely recommend getting a day pass just to relax.

The food was very good and the staff were all friendly however not always professional. Upon checkout I paid the bill and my group was on our way to our next destination. Hours later we are contacted through mutual Facebook friends about a small fee that they forgot to charge us for and wanted us to return to pay. Eventually we were able to pay online since we were already hours away from the resort. However I have no idea why they didn't contact me or any of my group about the additional fee before Facebook friends considering we had been in direct contact before to make all the reservations.

It was a good place for a tourist to get a little food from home, relax by the pool and get a lot of good scenic pictures but I don't think I will ever return to this resort

Second visit to Liquid.

Things I love about this place: peaceful location, beautiful surroundings, nice pool, sea view, sociable bar area, great diving, tasty food, ice cold beers and wonderful staff!

I only wish the house breakfast included something other than just eggs and toast…

Overall a wonderful place to stay. Special shout out to Nhoe, Arjun, Alexes, Adrian and everyone else who looked after us!

The place was great and ambiance was amazing. We were able to relax and have some fun. Although the service in food is for improvement especially the time to serve it, it was still a nice experience. Staff was friendly and approachable. Rooms were nice and the pool was also great and well maintained.

Great ambiance, great food, friendly staff. Have been a few times now and have not been disappointed. The beach out behind the bar where the accommodation is has amazing views. There is pools to swim in and free wi-fi. I can't wait to go back again.
