Since we found this lovely place in 2011 we have been there 4 times - for us it is a peaceful little paradise. Nice rooms with very comfortable beds and chairs on the terrace/balcony. A beautiful garden - now with new relaxing sunbeds and a pool - which is the main attraction for the local families at weekends! Delicious food...

This Resort is magic! Very peaceful surroundings on the steep coastline of Mabini. Very good service and food. Romms are nicely furnished and each has an own Terrace area, aside from the homely lounge / terrace area on seafront. We come here for diving regularly, and it's MAGIC. Not only for the world reknowned "Anilao" divesites, but the overall way...

I just came back from my 2 weeks trip from Philippine organised by SLS Photography from Vancouver. We were there for the purpose of an underwater photo workshop. The Resort is nice and cozy just a few steps away from the ocean. The dives are done from little boat and the valet service from the boat crews before and after...

Stay here for three nights with friends. We took the beachfront cottages. All meals are included and are tasty! The rooms are bungalow style, but not very clean. Most electric appliances, towels, sheets or furniture in the rooms are dated. So if you stay here, try to spend as much time as outdoor. I did two dives in three days....

This was our third trip to the Philippines and Dive Solana. We were so happy to return to this resort. It is perfectly set up for divers and especially those who are photographers. Not only is the diving relatively easy with short boat rides, shallow depths, and great dive masters who know when and where the current is high, there...

Moneys worth in terms of accomodation and meals. The place was pretty well kept compared to resorts in the area. The only turn off was the amount of floating garbage along the coast. Would have been great if there was a pool.

I've come back to this place a couple of times over the years. It's a nice, quiet and relaxed place that is never crowded. I really appreciate the food (I always look forward to the soup after diving!) and truly enjoy the view of the sunset. The spotter/guide is quite good and on one dive, I was able to tick...

Thank you for taking the time to providing us with some valuable feedback. Indeed we are fortunate to have a very wide beachfront (about 2,000 sq m beachfront) providing each guest with lots of private and uncrowded space to hang around and dine. We are glad our dive guide/spotter helped you find 2 critters in your wish list. We hope...

A wonderful to be: Oversee the sea at sunset, enjoy dives immaculate and rest superior - what a great place to have been to! Aside from great rooms, there is a wonderful terrace, loungers on the terrace and a great dining area - an offer of superb food to top te feeling of being welcome.

The resort has potential but misses on service and the food. The resort could probably use a facelift as well. The all inclusive concept and buffet style eating is not my thing and quality of ingredients sub par. It has a nice location and nice view but really value for money is not there.
