A real no frill 5 Star resort for people that believe that real luxury is respect, peace, quietness, friendliness and good dives. An excellent stay in an excellent resort, with outstanding staff, and superbe dives. Not 5 star as in the Dubai or Singapore sens with useless obnoxious luxury. 5 star resort in the respect of the environment, quality of...

This review is based on a one night stay in June, 2016. Our room P5600 " $120 " was nicely decorated and VERY clean. The room had a refrigerator and a wall safe but no TV. The pool was also VERY clean and surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers. The restaurant and outside dining area offer a great view of...

Having been to different resorts in the Philippines, we have some places to compare and enjoyed our stay at Dolphin House very much. Together with my son I did a dive course and we felt very comfortable with the dive crew. As my son is only 10 he is limited to the depth how far he can go down and...

I chose to stay at this resort because of the wonderful reviews and photos. We had a lovely welcome and our stay was okay however the location was much further than I had expected and to get out into the town was expensive compared to other places we had been to during or trip. It was cheaper to hire a...

Stayed overnight during the week with 5 other people. We almost had the entire hotel to our selves. They have a good clean pool and amazing views of an endless ocean. The beach isn't for swimming but you can hire a boat to take you out to the reefs. They have a covered pavilion that sits over the ocean where...

It's a nice resort however there are a few bad points which our group encountered. Not too important but the wifi was very slow so just keep that in mind incase you need it. The menu for dinner was limited we could only choose from three dishes and was priced around 900php however if you wanted to go anywhere else...

Dear Stephen, first things first. 1. phpMenu: I am afraid you did not understand our fine dining concept. What are you waiting from a 5 star Boutique Resort, Fast food, eatery prices? is the equivalent of 18 USD for a 3 dishes fine dining dinner to much? Honestly the F&B division is where we make practically zero profit but we...

Great resort, as advertised. The pictures you see on the internet do not quite capture the thick tropical garden the resort has throughout. It looks like it has taken a lot of work over a lot of years to grow and maintain what they have going on there. And they keep it VERY clean. Even with all the trees and...

Dear JKK, thank you so much for you nice review. Yes, you were here at "bottom low season" but I wonder about what you call "a bummer", SPA not operating. This must be a misunderstanding and maybe the reception forgot to tell you that when we have only a few room occupied our therapists are on call. In fact there...

Beautiful finish to our Philippine holiday. Simply a lovely place to stay. Amazing to be able to snorkel a short swim from the resort. Staff were lovely and incredibly helpful when we were let down by transport to the airport that we had arranged privately (next time will book through the resort!). So easy to relax in the friendly atmosphere!...
