My 2 week stay in this luxury dive resort isn’t enough!
Stayed in LLV for 2 weeks & had the best time. The rooms are comfortable, the pool is great for chilling & enough for doing a few laps after a dive or an activity outside, the food is amazing! As I am typing this I am craving for their Grilled Salmon & a chocolate shake.
The overall service is brilliant. Everyone is so accommodating & hospitable. Quality service! One thing I would really miss are the people behind LLV that makes it feel like home— Conan, Daniel, Jaime, Andy, Sherri, Luke, Kuya Dex, Kuya Jake, Ate Jesica, Ate Chris, etc. All great people! The reason why I would come back again & again.
My overall stay for 2 weeks is awesome, what seems like a long time is not even enough! Can’t get enough of this place!
