Well, what a mistake that was..........I mean leaving Liquid, I could have, should have stayed longer, now I am going to have to do it all over again! The surroundings are gorgeous, the staff friendly, courteous and make you feel like one of the family, taking the time to know you by name almost immediately. The facilities, from the equipment...

We stayed at this beautiful resort on the say so of so many fellow travellers and experienced divers. They weren't wrong. The resort is beautifully and thoughtfully set out, with gardens to die for. We stayed in both the standard room and the superior room, just had to stay longer...! Both rooms were exceptionally clean and had everything you needed....

We stayed at Liquid for 5 nights. The resort is about 30 mins drive from the port, don't let the road coming into the resort trick you ;-) it's a bumpy last 5 minutes but it's worth the trip. The resort looks and is very well maintained and the style was very much to our liking. Our room had an...

I just returned from five days at Liquid. The resort was beautiful and the staff were all lovely. By the second day, most of the staff knew my name and room number! I had a lovely fan cottage with an unbeatable sea view. I was here for my Open Water qualification (eLearning) and everything went really smoothly. Shout out to...

I spent a week at Liquid with a group that came with me from the States. There were 9 of us in total, 6 divers and 3 non. We had a wonderful time and were treated very well by the staff. We dove mainly with Jun, but also had dives with Carlo and Adrian. The boat crew and DMs were...

After searching for best place to dive and get certification I chose Liquid. Upon my arrival ( road there was a bit rough but not as bad as some people make it out to be) was greeted by friendly security and staff, met my dive master Yu Ri Lim and had time enough to have some breakfast before things started....

As the mini-bus were driving through this dirt track into the resort, I was kind of warning myself, "ok now, don't expect much". However, my days there, the dives, it's like a hidden gem, away from the buzz and nestle in nature kind of resort (you don't hear a whizzing sound of traffic. Dive operations are professional! I was assigned...

I stayed at Liquid Dumaguete only in order to get my OWD certification, booking few months in advance. When I showed up, they didn’t know my diving arrangement, and I was never greeted by any of the three people (Jim, Maria or Zoe) that I’ve exchanged emails with. I was introduced to an instructor named Carlo, and he said we’ll...

Well, this being a 4th review and I don't remember exactly which visit to Liquid Dumaguete kinda says enough already. Amazingly they made some impovements since my last visit :) Pool bar zone got better, more places to sit and more alive, probably because last year it was brand new.

We spent 3 days at Liquid and it was great. This was our first stop in the Philippines and our first time in Philippines and it didn't disappoint. My husband would dive all day and I would lay by the pool, on the beach or enjoy some good music and food at the bar. All and all I would recommend...
