This place is all diving, you will have the beste guides/spotters available in Batangas. Food is plenty and tasty. Camera room available for set up and maintenance of your equipment. Nitrox is a must on the dives and well serviced in the dive shop, No worries on the boat, no hassle with equipment, the guys know what they are doeing

The dive masters are some of the best at finding the little things, tell them what you want to see and they will do everything they can to find it for you. 4 divers per boat, up to 4 dives per day. Very helpful crew. The rooms are clean, the staff is very helpful and attentive. Food is good and...

We spent a week here and were very happy with the facilities and setup. Staff were extremely attentive and helpful, rooms were clean and comfortable. Air cons were working and bathrooms were OK too with running hot water which is not always a given in this part of the world. Scuba diving facilities were excellent. Nitrox available, equipment well taken...

This Resort is known for the area you find hundreds of nudibranches. The Rooms accommodations are a bit hard to reach. There are a lot's steps up. To get to the Rooms the food was mostly Dry. Not too big in the way of variety very limited

It is difficult to write a review about this place, because it is not a bad place but it does not have anything specially that to highlight. The worst is to get there. Very complicated, specially during the evening / night. Then, you can not do anything there, just sleep and diving, but it is clear that you are not...

Everything was fabulous! The dive area was well thought out, and we never had to touch our tanks/regs/bcs, they were cleaned every night. Nitrox tanks were measured twice a day after the dives, so tanks were always ready. The boats were great, easy to get into, shaded, and one guide to every 3-4 people to point out the small stuff....

Crystal Blue is a comfortable resort, with nice meals and great service. The dive guides are great, the look after getting your gear on and off the boats and wash it at the end of the day. Most dive sites are under 20 mins boat trip from the resort and the macro life is unbelievable. The home reef - just...

This was my 4 trip to Crystal Blue and I will go back. Excellent dive resort, with a 4 to 1 ratio of divers to guide. The food is excellent. It is clean and well maintained. It seems that every time I go there they have made improvements. Anilao is world class muck diving and Crystal Blue is simply the...

My dive buddy and I just returned from a 10 day dive trip at the Crystal Blue Resort in Anilao, Philippines. We both agreed that it was one of our best. The resort is situated on a hillside going down the water. It is built vertically rather than spread out flat. There are a good number of stairs to negotiate...
