I have travelled extensibly through out Asia but have never come across a place quite like this - double the price for a very average room, triple the price for an OK meal and triple the price for an activity! No idea why this place hs had top reviews. I was shocked. The bed was uncomfortable - springs sticking out....

Thank you for staying with us as 1-night walk-in guests and for your feedback. We’re very sorry about the faulty spring on the mattress of the single bed in your room. We checked and replaced this mattress as soon as we read your review, and it is rather a shame that you did not mention the problem while you were...

Location - Quite far from town proper. Get a habal habal if you wanna go in and out of town. Customer Service- Superb.

Spent a few days at the Castle. Owners David and Delia run a great, little dive resort. The rest of the staff is awesome as well. The place is a very interesting white concrete "castle" on a high bluff next to the sea. The rooms (5 total) are very nice and western designed. When I say western, I mean the...

We spent a terrific week at Padre Burgos Castle Resort at the beginning of an Asian trip and the start of our retirement (after decades in the Far East.) While I hadn't intended necessarily to take a PADI diving course, the setup was too convenient not to take advantage of. I was assigned a personal trainer and overseen by the...
