The Dive Thru Scuba Resort is a really great Hotel”
I went with my wife to Dive Thru Scuba Resort and could not be more happy as the reviews we read are true and now we can wrote that you won't be disappointed. The staff is fantastic, all of them make you feel special and that you are at home in Bohol. From the moment their driver pick you up at the airport/ferry terminal your experience starts with an excellent service and a big smile from all the employees: drivers, reception, bar, restaurant, house keeping, security guys. They even take care of your day trips and have a driver always ready to take you wherever you want. No issues, no pushing, all done at your own pace. I have to mention that both owners are great too and they take care of their business and do all they can to please your necessities. I would recommend 100% this resort and more if you are a diver. We are not divers but even so we had a great time as we did day trips very well organised by the Hotel staff. Thanks to all at Dive Thru Scuba Resort!!!!!!!
Panglao is now hustling and bustling with tourist with a multitude of large resorts and hotels right on Alona Beach but Dive Thru Resort was the perfect resort that was small and quiet yet centrally located enough to ensure your vacation was truly a vacation. Although not right on Alona beach, the staff made it easy and assisted with calling transportation whenever we needed. The room was just what we needed and just as with the rest of the facilities — very clean! We also availed of the daily breakfast with, unlike all the other resorts, weren’t buffet style, but instead made to order with 2 choices each day with one always a Filipino dish that we are overlooking the water. I didn’t have time to take advantage of their on site diving facilities but many of the other guests were doing just that. If I were to come back to Bohol for my diving cert, I would definitely choose this resort!
Highly highly recommending Dive Thru to every traveller! I was travelling with my friend and we booked a loft room which is very spacious and nice to stay. View is absolutely beautiful from the terrace as sea is just in front of you. Definitely value for the money! - View: Dive Thru got very pretty view as it is just by the sea, from the resort you can see ocean just in front of you (as their images showed) - Convinence: if you book a one day boat trip, Dive Thru is a perfect place to stay as most of boats can pick you up right in front of the resort - Staff: Super friendly and helpful, always smiling and trying to solve your issues. We booked a boat trip from a travel agency but the boat was late, the staff in Dive Thru was trying her best to call the boat and ask them to come to pick us up asap - Food: Breakfast normally has 2 options, fruits, and juices and also coffee to choose from, was very good. And also food in the resort is very yummy and well-cooked with decent prices. -
A hidden gem !”
unlike some other places calling themselves resort just in name, dive thru scuba resort really was a resort ! the service was excellent ! there was free pick up from the seaport to the hotel on the day you arrive and depart arrange for you ! the staff were all very friendly and always smiling ! one of the best things was the tour they provided. for a pretty decent amount, we got a brand new van just for the 2 of us for the whole day ! besides they have a very cool diving training pool !
modern resort hotel”
i was having my vacation at my hometown bohol for a couple of days and i stayed this resort "dive thru".i was really amazed by it's beauty,very solemn & relaxing.i find it as a romantic place,perfect for a couple who wants to take their time;from the structural design,management & staffs(very accomodating)up to the foods it's worth it! two thumbs up for this resort,for sure i will be coming back:-) highly recommended for tourist who wants privacy, very accessible to the other resort @ panglao.we did dolphin watching,snorkeling @ balicasag island.virgin island (superb)note:if u want to go this isalands,you have to bring some extra money.
Nice and distant from hectic Alona”
We had very nice stay in this hotel! only 11 rooms in the whole hotel. very welcoming and friendly staff! everyone is always smiling and ready to fulfill your request - real individual service! the hotel boasts a nice view on the sea, quite rocky though (but this is a common thing for Panglao in general). As the season was low (although the low season means less tourists, but not bad weather) - the breakfast had 2 options each day, but were nicely cooked. the hotel is located 15 min walk from Alona beach (main attraction for meals&deals). our type of room was loft room - consists of a small room on 1st floor + bed on 2nd floor + small balcony giving to the pool (table + 2 chairs on balcony). small bathroom - but do you really need big one when you are on seaside holidays?! wardrobe for hanging cloths but a bit not enough hangers :) (+) hotel has a rather small, but deep pool for scuba diving trainings and just for fun (+) hotel has a scuba diving centre and all amenities for rent (+) very friendly staff (+) 15 min away from Alona beach allows to stay in quiet atmosphere (-) bad road condition on the way from main road to the hotel (-) room cleaned on request only due to low season and lack of staff General impression - GOOD!!
People over Dive Thru Scuba Resort are very nice, provide pick up from ferry port, local tour price is very good!! will book again, if i have a chance to go Bohol again!!! Thanks Dive Thru Scuba Resort....
Beautiful grounds, great service, relaxing stay”
We had a great stay with Dive Thru. They were waiting for us at the airport (free pick up and drop off) and it took about 30 minutes to get to the hotel (at the end you turn off onto a big dirt road and then onto a really small dirt road that twists and turns to get you to the resort). When we got the the resort staff were waiting to serve us with iced tea/watermelon juice drink and to carry our bags to our room. All the staff were really nice. The grounds of the resort are really beautiful (even nicer than in the photos) and our room was good (deluxe room)--was perfectly clean and had working A/C and hot water. The bathroom was a little small, but it was fine. The resort is on the sea, but there's no sand. We walked to Alona beach on a trail along the shore and it took us about 20 minutes walking very slowly to get there (about 25 to the main part of the beach where it hits the main road). We arranged a land tour through the resort (~P4,000 for both of us) and a dolphin watching/snorkeling/Virgin Island tour (~P3,000). For the latter the boat picks you up right at the resort and the staff packed us a breakfast to take with us since we left before they started serving. My wife got an hour massage (~P350) and loved it. It's very quiet and relaxing, though this means it's hard to get out after dar--you have to call a car to pick you up and we were told they charge P600. It's easy to walk during daylight and it's easy to find transportation back from Alona (we took a tricycle for P100 including tip). The restaurant was good. My favorite things were the friendly staff and the beautiful atmosphere at the resort.
The Dive Thru Scuba Resort is a really nice place to stay. There were not very people during our stay, so it was quite, what i really liked. The people are really friendly and organized also island hopping and a snorkeling trip for us. I recommend this place!
Great little resort and diving”
I m very happy with my four nights stay. The staff here are confident young Philippine people and are always helpful. Dive guide JC is really cool and friendly. We went diving in Balicasag island and in our first dive we saw whale shark up close together with a big school of jack fish. Must be my lucky day as I have dive over 200 times and first time seeing wild whale shark up close. On the house reef dive, I saw 2 really big octopus mating. Again unbelievable. I have tried Bohol divers club and it is no where near as good as Dive Thur. My friend took his open water dive course here with the instructor King. He get his license in 3 days. Excellent. Thank you Dive Thur resort and hope to see u all again.
The hotel staff was the friendliest staff on our whole trip. They will go out of their way to help (a special mention to Richard, Thank you!) Great design of the place. However the Christmas dinner was a bit over-priced. A bit isolated but great to get away from the crowds. The place is very relaxing and has a great view of the beach. Has great activities to offer such as Island-hopping and Scuba-diving. Will definitely stay again when in Bohol!
Very nice place near alone beach!”
Nice resort with good beach view, good restaurant, message, island hopping and great diving!!! You could just stay in the resort and get everything in Bohol you need. The diving was great with the care of JR, our dive master, we, as a beginner we feel greatly safe!! The monkey sailors are great to give us a wonderful time in the three dives!! The location there is 10 mins by tutu to alone beach. But it is better than stay in alone, as we could enjoy the quiet and our own beach and swimming pool!!Altogether, the staying was great!!!
We had a great stay here and found it perfectly located. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the resort whilst only being 5 minutes drive from Alona Beach. We researched most hotels in the area and were so glad we chose Dive Thru. We ate in their restaurant twice and both times the food was really good in a lovely peaceful setting. We also ate at Alona beach and wished we had stayed at the Dive Thru instead. The room was spacious and clean and staff very helpful and polite. The dive centre was also of a high standard. Book you wont regret it.
Really enjoyable vacation in Dive Thru ”
Many thanks to all stuff who served us! They did a really good job solving all the issues and need we had. Dive Thru resort can provide all kind of service that you need to do - massage, tours, food, transport. Resort itself is nice with the facilities and rooms. At first when we were driving from the port to resort, we were thinking where the hell we are going, but immediately when we arrived, we realised that it's a really nice place. We enjoyed the cocktails and the pool the most. The pool is awesome, because of its distributed deeper (4m height) and lower area. The another good thing is its located near Alona centre where you can go with the motorbike within 10 minutes. Good luck and enjoy!
Great Staff and Relaxing Holiday Locale”
We stayed at Dive-Thru for five days, and it was a great holiday. Although the hotel is not directly on Alona Beach, it is a quick walk along a trail to the beach, it was 7 minutes without kids and 20 minutes when I was carrying a beach bag and a 13 kilo 2 year old with an exhausted 4 year old walking behind me. So, it is definitely a do-able walk for anyone. The staff were absolutely terrific with the kids. They chatted with them, turned the bar TV to Disney junior when the wait for a meal was becoming too long, made terrific watermelon and mango juice, and were otherwise excessively patient, thank you to all! The problems? Charges for the little things- instant coffee in your room (35 P), rides in the evening to the main drag (200 P each way etc.) We got around it by either walking to the beach before dark and getting a motorbike ride back, or paying the 200php to get to a restaurant and then riding the motorbikes back (25 pesos per ride, much better than a tricycle on the dirt roads, much cheaper than a taxi (100-125 each way). The other problem, the neighbors burning their trash. There isn't anything the resort can do, and this is a problem throughout the Philippines. It is particularly bad at dusk and dawn when there isn't any wind. They arranged a land tour for us, the tarsiers and the church were both amazing. Skip the "zoo" Yucky, perhaps try the butterfly garden instead. All in all, clean, well maintained, zen-like retreat. We enjoyed ourselves and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dive-thru.
Very Very Good Service and good decorated hotel”
When I first come, my impression was - What a bad hotel! As the enhance was in non-pave road. (But really really love it) However once I first came, I really love it. When I arrive, they will give you a free drink in the lobby, staff will take photo for you without requesting everything. They help you to carry luggage to your room without asking for tips. Not like other hotels in Alona Beach, it is very quiet,no people will come to annoy you. If I go again, I will definitely Dive Thru for relax tour.
Dive Thru this Paradise”
What a gorgeous resort. An inspired architect executed a brilliant design. That sense of quality and luxury extends to every aspect of this paradise by the sea, built just a few years ago. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The pool is so beautiful, turning at night into a glowing blue object d'art. Even the water pressure in the bathroom is notable compared to every other place I've visited in the Philippines. The staff is promptly responsive to every request. The dive guide (J.R.) had a sharp eye for creatures large and small. And the food, ah, so delicious. I had every meal here over four days and enjoyed them all. Drinks, too (ask attentive bartender Albert for his mango-banana daiquiri). I do not hesitate to note deficiencies when reviewing, but this resort does it all well, eagerly and professionally. A small place, it has an intimacy the big resorts can never capture. But all the quality you could ever want.
It was a Great place. Staff were nice and friendly”
staff was excellent. drinks were resonable and karoke was fun. Will definately be there at Dive thru resort again on next Bohol trip. Resort is very clean and well kept. Service were excellent.
Great diving vacation in quiet place.”
I stayed with my girlfirend for lovely diving vacation. Diving was just awsam. Ryan was a great divemaster who made our diving an unforgetable experience. For Divers I must recomend Balicasag island. But also on house reef you will enjoy diving and snorkeling. Sea was very clear and calm. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed there during rain season but weather was great. Because of low season we have been there almost only guests. Prices were reasonable. Just for information not ment as complain: There has been some ants leaving with us, but not caused any problems and in the tropics I cannot imagine much how to get rid of them. Also if You have sensitive skin towels and bed sheets can iritate You because of some soap powder left on.
The best boutique hotel.”
I can only say great things about this hotel. Aside from the awesome architecture, the place is well-maintained and very clean, the food is really tasty, and all the staff are very courteous, kind, and you can feel they really want to take care of you. They are super accommodating and paid excellent attention to details even the tours/rentals they arranged on our behalf. Thank you so much for helping us surprise our friend who was celebrating her birthday on our 1st day, by arranging a cake. You guys are really really awesome! We will definitely come back and recommend you to our friends heart emoticon Thank you Dive Thru!
