We had a Polynesian style bungalow (one of the cheaper rooms). It was cute and comfortable. The drinks and food in the hotel are great but are a little overpriced. Unfortunately we couldn't do any diving whilst we were there as the weather was awful. Dauin is a quiet area so there isn't much to do outside of the hotel...

This is a lovely location, great muck diving. The one dive master I had was a bit lazy, trying to finish the dive as soon as possible. The dive operation as a whole was nice, but not very good at reaching out for customers to have a wonderful experience. I arrived after a dive trip in Palau and was really...

If you are looking for a boutique down to earth style stay this is the place for you. It's not fancy but is clean, adequate and hobbit style quaint with a local feel to it and that's what I want when I travel to a new country. It's small enough that even when it's full it still feels like you...
