Reviewed September 20, 2016

Room Tip: Equipment ok , all furniture in bamboo like the bungalow and excellent ma tresses. Room 16 facing th...

My wife and I loved staying at Sampaquita resort. The staff was fantastic, it was quiet and laid-back. Only down side where the French divers. This group smoked during surface intervals, and included one schmuck with a camera that was always in someones way, or kicking up sand, laying on the coral " for his shot", etc. Would stay again.

Dear Captain Pietro
Hello! from Sampaguta Resort
Sorry for the late reply to your kind review of Sampaguita Staff and Resort in general. We also have to appreciate the negative comments and try to use our guests inspirations and recommendations in order to improve the comfort and the fun for everybody.
We remind our Captains and Dive Masters that it's part of their job to try to show to the guests that a certain behavior above and underwater is not acceptable; but please agree with me that it's utopia that anyone of our staff will do such a ting, and risk to create an unpleasant situation, we also ask them to report the guests who do not respect the environment, sorry, this is also utopia. However I want to thank you for the good inspiration. We shall have a sign in the Diving Center saying: "For safety, and respect to your fellows divers please refrain from smoking on the boat".
Please do come again we have some surprises for our returning guest.
Warmest Regards
Gaspare and the Sampaguita Team

Very nice time spent on Sampaguita! Good service, good and profesional diving, nice facilities.
The whole crew(ground & boat) is very kind. Thanks to our dive guide Raymond. The diving was amazing in part thanks to him.
Hope they will keep this level of service for more years, may be we'll repeat.

Clean and confortable bungalow, with fan and a/c.
Friendly staff.
Good food, altough the choice is a little bit limited.
Very experienced dive masters.
If you look for luxury rooms, silver plated cutlery and stuff like taht, this is not your place, but if you look for a cozy atmosphere to share with friends I highly recommend it.

Excellent service. Extremely kind staff. Willing to help guests in everything needed. The best.
Could be improved the size of the bathroom (too small), and the diving centre. Too simple breefings with no info at all.

Dear Isabel,

Warmest Greetings from Sampaguita Resort

Thanks for your review and kind words to our staff. Happy that you enjoyed our Philippino food. In the spirit of Sampaguita we do our best to offer as much of a local experience a possible.
Regarding briefings, you are right, however, you must admit that our dive guide are excellent under water, very professional in showing the best of the biodiversity, helpful, and very concerned of your safety and FUN. underwater, they are rather shy of their poor English.
Regarding the bathrooms, I a pleased to inform you and future guest that not all bathrooms are small and we have a project to enlarge the facilities where possible.
Thanks for having chosen Sampaguita, we certainly look forward to welcoming you again in future.
Best Wishes
