Its my first going there on November of 2011. we arrived there for just a daytour with a group of 4. Beware of tricycles who overpriced in going to the meeting place usually should be around a P100. First impression was a waste of time cause the pickup station is a beach with full of trash but when the boat arrived it all paves off from the travelling part to the resort. First time on scuba diving, the place is full of corals, they also offer introductory lessons around P2,500 I think.. a bit pricey also for their accomodation but for the day tour of P1,100 which I think is also pricey covering the boat transfers, lunch and the entrance to the resort. The island is like a dream come true.very good surroundings. Overal very good cause the staff are accomodating which they let us have a room just to take showers or take some time to prepare and also gave us free merienda. Another factor was the trainor, he was accomodating (forgot the name) also, the diving spot, we saw different kinds of fishes (only imported fishes! just to note"haha"). Give it a try and you will never regret.
P.S. - to the management - hope you can still bring down the prices a bit more, cause I'm planning to go there at least once a year!
