Been meaning to write this review for a while! I travelled to Liquid Dumaguette in September 2016 to complete my Rescue course and Divemaster. Pre-trip all my questions were answered, I had been emailing Zoe regularly while deciding where to go and she was very helpful, replying very quickly and with in-depth information. When I arrived they had been expecting...

My friend and I visited Liquid Dumaguete in April 2017 and the staff here were really helpful right from the get-go of booking (sending us emails with lots of useful information and answering all our questions), making everything super easy. I booked an airport collection with Liquid – which is more expensive than a local trike, but seeing as this...

Michael, my instructor, was excellent. He was patient and very knowledgeable. I also got to learn with Carlo and Juan Carlos. They were so nice and accommodating as well. As for the resort, I can't say the same. We were initially only 3 people traveling but my boyfriend decided to join us at the last minute. So our reservation was...

Nice resort, almost on the beach but not really interesting if you don't go there for diving. Staff neither welcoming nor accommodating. Security needs to be improved: my sister in law started to be really sick during the night, we wanted to take her to the hospital. There was no hotel personnel in the resort except security guards who didn't...

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback. We are terribly sorry that your sister in law was sick overnight during her stay at Liquid and I was not available to personally respond overnight. We understand there is a distance from the hospital in Dumaguete - it was unfortunate they would not send an ambulance during this...

We spent 2 nights in this resort, and during the second night, one member of my family was very sick (nausea, vomiting, water loss...) and nobody was in the hotel to help us. Impossible to find a phone to call the hospital and the 4 security guards were very useless (no phones, didn't know what to do, no emergency kit...)...

Dear Alexandre, I am sorry that your family member was ill during there stay at Liquid. Following the conversation we had the following day it was apparent that the security here did help you contact the hospital in Dumaguete. It is lucky that paracetamol and water helped your family member recover quickly with no further symptoms. It was unfortunate that...

Just come back from a fantastic four days at this place. I am an experienced diver and the diving was top notch - a mixture of island days trips and costal dives. I am now a complete convert to the joys of back sand muck diving. Amazing critters everywhere. The rooms and grounds are lovely. The food is good and...
