I took a solo trip out of Manila to experience the widely popular Philippine diving experience--this was an absolute treat. The resort is remote, several hours due south of the Manila metro area. I received a very warm welcome from the numerous staff as a made my way to the common area. The resort is perched right on the beach,...

Peaceful location that isn't too far from Manila so a weekend trip is definitely doable. The resort is clean and quiet with beautiful sunsets. I dove with Rene, one of the dive masters, who was safety conscious and great at pointing out little critters that I probably wouldn't have seen. He also took a bunch of amazing photos of the...

I chose Arthur's Place because of one special reason.. they allow pets in their resort which is a PLUS for us since we always bring our fur babies with us every time we go on travel, the place is secluded but very clean and since we placed our booking on Friday we got the resort exclusive for us, LOL! though...

I revisited Arthur's with my daughter after an absence of 11 years (we'd changed countries). We used to be regulars. While negotiating the traffic is still something of a challenge, once there, all the hassle evaporates. The staff are as wonderfully friendly as ever, while the entry road is somewhat steeper than I recalled. The accommodations and food are both...

Comfortable rooms, accommodating staff, pleasant setting with the square patch of grass in the centre. A reasonable priced resort. Maryanne will help you organise your dive trips. It is quiet and thankfully, no karaoke! Air-con and fan rooms available.

We have been in Anilao twice, and It's first time for us to stay at this resort, but it's really amazing! Small size resort without pool & bar. Sunset view was breathtaking. アニラオには過去2回訪れました。今回初めてこのリゾートを利用しました。 Very friendly staff and crews. Japanese is not available. 日本語は使えません。 Seaside villa has an excellent view, next to the diving center. Lots of space with air conditioner...

My son and his girlfriend headed off to the Philippines for a 6 week diving vacation. All he wanted for his 30th birthday was to be at Arthur's Place in time for a dive. He may be half way around the world but there was no way I was missing his birthday. A quick email off to Marianne at Arthur's...

We are a group of divers based in Manila. This was our first time at Arthur's and we will go back. I have been to several resorts in the area and I was very happy at Arthur's. Rooms: most of the rooms face a small grassy area with a view of the ocean. Our room was clean and had a...

As the weather has a strong influence let us talk about June/July. • We went for diving and therefore the place is perfect. • Shore diving is not recommended. Due to the season there are big waves sometimes rain and the visibility can be very limited (around the base). • In June there are nearly no guests. • The Dive...

I have been there for one day inlcuding the night. The place is small but relaxing, well placed with sea front view from almost every rooms, personnel very kind. I did some snorkeling but unfrotunaltely the water is full of plastic floating debris (like most of the coastal area). My friends went farer for diving and they confirmed there are...

“The beach front rooms are always great to stay in but if you're a late riser, you might get the startle of your life with the boatman's revving of their boat engines in the morning as they pick up the divers.”
