I have been visiting Dumaguete with my grilfriend with the aim having a nice dive trip and enjoy good food plus accomondation - i believe my expecations were excelled. Form the very beginning (during the booking - fast reply, supportive and to the point) until our last day we both were very satisfied and felt been taking care of. The employees at the hotel were all very friendly, well trained, extremly supportive and obviously enjoyed working at Acqua Dive. The very nice couple (they own the resort) Sean and Chae were always approachable and very supportive (whether it was about the dives, trips to the city or simple food recommendations from their menue) in all matters. The food was exceptional authentic and truly freshly prepared, Western and Filipino dishes. The dives trips were great organized and our expectations well managed since we could influence were to go - after we recived a propper briefing about the dive sites. We definitely will come back, its a perfect place for a longer vacation or a weekend getaway (depends how close you are). Thanks to Sean and Chae for the arrangements!

AcquaDive owned by a beautiful couple Sean and Chae were extremely accommodating right from the start. Responses to my inquiries was extremely fast at the onset of my booking. Each and everyone of the staff greeted us and took care of us with so much hospitality and sincerity I could see that they were all a happy family. The rooms were very clean, spacious and comfy. Food had a good variety and reasonably priced. The Dives were well organized and very flexible with all our needs without compromising our safety. The Resort is close to Apo island and other beautiful dive sites. It is also close to the Boulevard where you can walk around or dine out.

This was one of the Most Memorable Birthday Getaway trip! My boyfriend and I have travelled around and experienced numerous diving resorts in Asia, AcquaDive is certainly at the Top of the list! Highly recommended!

Thanks for their arrangement for our very short notice request. It was great to stay in the resort. A big swimming pool, various cute creatures on the beach! We also could go to Apo Island directly from the resort and back to the resort, without taking other transit!

I would just like to thank the aqua dive team for the most memorable 3 nights in dumaguete. Me and my 12 year old son done the discover scuba diving lesson started in the pool then two dives at apo island. A big thank you to Anna Yates one of the dive instructors that made it so enjoyable and safe especially for my son I highly recommend Anna as your instructor. Unfortunately we could not stay longer as the trip was already planed and booked to travel around the Philippines. But we will be back and for longer next time with aqua dive.
