Staying at Sampaguita is like staying at your rich Uncle's fancy beach house. There are very personal touches and the staff goes out of their way to make sure you feel at home. They even surprised my wife with a birthday cake, and arranged a 3 person acoustic band to play dinner music and sing happy birthday at the end....

Resort great for diving/snorkeling, reef and vertical coral wall off the resort beach. Food services good. Not many seating locations outside, no swimming pool, limit things to do when not diving/snorkeling.

Feels like somebody built this for his extended family, with an artisanal eye for beautiful bamboo furniture, ceilings and walls, comfortable sofas, pretty landscaping, good views of the beach and distant isles. The opposite of a slick newbie resort designed for would-be jet-setters. This one is intimate, designed for real people who know who they are and what they want.

I loved the traditional bamboo used throughout the resort.Excellent food and friendly, helpful staff. I would definitely come back. Very close to town, which is very convenient for an afternoon outing, yet quiet and secluded for privacy.

This is your little heaven! Our "Gangga Divers" Diving Center is manned by Excellent and professional dives guides who, as native, know the diving sites as well as their own houses.
