Had a great time staying and diving at Blue Ribbon Dive Resort! The room was clean and cozy with a great balcony with a view. Sunsets were spectacular. Diving was great - got my advanced open water certification and also enjoyed some new and different underwater experiences. The staff was excellent - very friendly and accommodating. Definitely recommend!

Blue Ribbon Dive Resort is a perfect place to take a breather during this pandemic. Just Wow! Beautiful sunset, live corals and colourful fishes just a few steps from the shore. Jonathan was so kind to manage a short notice dive. My first timer daughter learned some good skills and was instantly hooked. Thank you! You’re the best! No kidding. We sure will be back for more OW+Advance course & will tug along a few young divers. And oh the staff are very friendly, helpful and kind. Very safe and relaxed atmosphere! And of course, The Breakfast! Jon, you made the right decision, because you knew that you are right at the doorstep of the Center of the Center of Marine Shorefish Biodiversity and as the Center of the Center of the Marine Biodiversity of the World. Hope soon it will be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I also learned Blue Ribbon Dive Resort is very much on hand in helping the community around the area esp. the victims of the recent typhoons. So come and dive for a cause!

We recently spent 5 nights and 6 days with Blue Ribbon during Covid and during one of the most impactful typhoons to hit Luzon, and this area specifically, in quite some time. The weather impacted our dive plans and everything else for 24 hours and the Blue Ribbon staff were up to the task before, during, and after.

These are trying times and Blue Ribbon is a great example of adapting to the ever-changing regulations and requirements with the commitment of bringing diving and dive training to customers amidst the challenges. Getting over and through some of the hurdles placed by the local government was a bit of challenge and Blue Ribbon guided us through that well so that we could safely join their bubble and finally get some dives in this year.

The staff are all incredibly helpful and the atmosphere is relaxed and they work with the customers in a way that is refreshing and can-do (within reason).

We are very experienced independent-minded divers and it is worthwhile to call out the excellence of the DM and the boat staff. The dives were at our pace, well-led, and the DM adapts fabulously to the skill level he is dealing with. The boat staff are very helpful, recognize preferences in set-up, and manage any issues efficiently. What can we say, giant Hawksbill turtles finding us over and over again, mating octopi, schools of baby barracuda, dogtooth tuna, squid families, more morays and variety of morays than we can count, magical nudi-branchs, blue spotted sting rays, incredible reef dives and the magical creatures of the muck dives in Anilao...joy!

All in all, a wonderful experience and we are very grateful to be able to do some incredible diving in 2020 when all of our prior plans fell apart due to Covid. Thank you!

I'm so lucky to find this dive resort amidst the pandemic. Staff and even the owner Jon were friendly and accommodating to their guests. Rooms are spacious and clean. Food serving is very generous (this includes their free breakfast). I also had my DSD with them and Jon was patient with me all throughout the process. It's a perfect place for divers and people who just want to relax near the sea. Of course I will not forget that they have 4 dogs who are really sweet and will greet you first thing in the morning. I'll definitely go back in this place and stay longer next time.

Thanks, Kaye, It's comments like this that makes me glad we didn't decide to go out of business when the Pandemic started and we fought through it. Glad to get back to what we love to do!

I spend one week at Blue Ribbon Dive Resort with my hubby. We were looking for a cozy place where we could dive and relax but we got a lot more than we could have ever imagined. The minute we arrived to Blue Ribbon we realized we’d made the right choice. The welcome was very warm. You can see it right away that these people want to take good care of you. The whole staff is friendly and extremely professional. We did two morning dives a day, except on the last day when we also did a night dive. The gear was in mint condition. The diving instructors take their job’s seriously but with a smile on their face. They made sure that we got to dive in a different place everytime. We always felt safe, both during the boat rides and also during the dives. The staff were always there to help when we had to get the gear on or off. The dive sites were all different from each other. We saw sharks, turtles, sting rays, sea snakes but also a ton of nudi branchers. We ate at Blue Ribbon every day and appreciate the effort they have made with the food menu. You have a lot to choose from and it was all delish. The dishes we enjoyed the most were the lovely, huge and fresh salads and local dish, bicol express. All in all we couldn’t be happier with the whole experience. On the last day I felt super emotional as I felt that these people I just met had become my friends and I had to leave them. When I return to Philippines Blue Ribbon Dive Resort is the place where I'll be, no question about it.
