Verbier, Switzerland

The place is a bit more expensive than others, but the standards are definitely better. The rooms are quite big, but the bathroom was not clean out first night. The dive center doesent check a single thing, you could be a dive master or a new paid with one dive, no briefing, no checks. Not sure if that's everywhere in...

The hotel is nothing luxurious, but it´s very clean and comfortable. The highlight of the hotel is the staff: everyone is really nice and helpful, from reception desk to the restaurant or dive center. The food in the restaurant is fairly good. It is located 10 min far by motorbike from Panangsama beach.

It is situated 2 hours away from whale sharks watching, an hour from Kawasan Fall and Aguinid Falls. In Kawasan you can go rafting and cayoneering. In Aguinid you can climb up to...

Dear Demi, Greetings from Turtle Bay Dive Resort! Can you please elaborate more on your comments? We struggle to understand this because our resort has had very high occupancy all this year and so we cannot understand how it is possible that the guests were "alone". We believe that we offer some the best rooms in Moaboal both in size,...
