very comfortable, clean rooms, delicious foods, well trained dive professionals. Everything is perfect. The pool gives your relax after the dives, but sure with a beer :) The personnel is always trying the best for the guest.

I have been travelling and diving around the world for more than 10 yrs. I am a dive instructor trainer and dive center owner in Turkey. Magic Island Dive Resort was one of my best experiences! Manager Concheng, dive center manager Jamie, JaJa and all others were excellent. Kind, fun, helping and always around! They will take good care of you during your stay here... Excellent kitchen, clean rooms and very good room service. Nice pool, cosy bar and beautiful coral beach. Diving is also great here. Nice boat, top quality, good serviced equipment and great guides, Mavar, Dennis and Jason! Guys I hope to see you all again one day! Readers of this review: do not hasitate to book your reservation!!!

We were on a trip organized by Snorkel Ventures. We had a great time at Magic Island. The staff were very friendly and knew everyone by first name in no time. The snorkelling was very good. Jamie and his dive team were excellent. The guides did a great job at pointing out various marine life for us. In particular we want to thank DeLoy who was especially helpful in the water with my wife Margo and I. The food was very good, the accommodation excellent, and we even had some great live music on our last night. Thanks again to all at Magic Island.

My buddy Pete and i spent 8 days at this resort in October. What a nice little gem in the middle of the Philippines! The staff was excellent, warm and friendly! Food was very good and plentiful. The dive master (Manny) was really good, very friendly and helpful. Head of dive operations not so much.... The owners were on hand and very friendly as well. Everyone makes you feel at home. Cottages small but clean and efficient. The reefs here were beautiful, healthy and FULL of life. The long boats took you out to very close reefs for diving. Very calm waters with less currents and easy diving. Lots of varieties of small fish. The day diving with the whale sharks was truly awesome and a once in a lifetime experience! Just fantastic.Took the rickshaw ride (very fast and adventurous) into town to the market to see the lovely locals. Overall a great experience!

Magic Islands is a unique resort, small yet very well suited to support international tourists with all their SCUBA diving needs. There is an in-house dive center that is equipped with everything from Nitrox, to nice banka boats to any rental gear you could possibly need, an on-site restaurant that serves delicious meals, a swimming pool, sunbathing terrace, and even a massage area for those after-diving days when you want to relax and enjoy life a bit more. Ten cottages are surrounded by beautiful gardens and there is an ocean front looking out to a prime diving site where turtles are often seen. A short boat ride away is Pescadore Island, one of the top diving spots in the Cebu Island region, a place filled with many types of corals, colorful fish, and so much marine life that you will want to spend the whole day diving while you are there. Not a diver? Not a problem! The hotel staff can set you up with plenty of land adventures from waterfalls tours to mountain hikes to snorkling with whale sharks and so much more. The best part of staying at Magic Island is getting to know their friendly staff - they are warm and sincere, treating you like family and always trying to maximize your travel experience while you are there. Magical vacations indeed!
