My favourite dive resort in Sabang

I’ve stayed here a few times before pandemic and finally I am back. Perfect place for a diving vacation (and there’s a lot to see in Mindoro aside from diving). Top quality dive shop, exceptional team, awesome restaurant, and pool area. The staff is amazing – you are being taken care of every minute, all team members are professional and fun. My favourite dive resort so far.
