This is my 6 or 7 trip to Crystal Blue and I love it here. The macro diving is some of the best in the world. This is a small, family run resort. The food is really good, the accommodations are clean and well kept and service is excellent. The dive guides are knowledgeable, well trained and a lot of...

Crystal Blue Resort is awesome and I would highly recommend that you choose this resort if you are a serious, experienced diver. They have a wonderful resort manager/professional underwater photographer Mike Bartick and the dive guides are the best in my opinion in Anilao. Bring your bucket list of animals that you would like to see and they will find...

If I had to make a criticism, it's that the resort is built on a mountainside so steps are part and parcel of anything you do. But I could not find fault with the food, staff friendliness, helpfulness and efficiency, and cleanliness. I found it necessary to report one concern which was rectified immediately. It's a scuba resort, so forget...

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

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
