          Depressing hotelSadly the hotel is not like any of the pictures, it would be difficult to give it any stars based on what I have seen. The room we stayed in which is pretty much the same for all the other rooms was small and very very basic and felt like it was in a basement. Directly under the reception and you could pretty much hear anything that went on in the restaurant including for some reason the TV that was constantly switched on for the guests!!! The bathroom was very inadequate, you literally need to jump over the toilet to get to the shower!!! The beach in the pictures doesn’t exist, it’s just a sanded area in the hotel. The staff were very helpful and probably best part of the hotel. The hotel charges too for nothing and the location is neither here or there!!! We arrived around 8pm and went to Alona beach for the night... didn’t waste much time as first thing in the morning (7am), hired a bike through the hotel and found another hotel.... Mithi... which I 100% recommend...

          not what we expectedwe booked the family room because description said 1 king size bed and 1 double bed. At the end there was a queen size and a single bed. We paid more choosing this room but at the end its the same as the cheaper loft room. Reception staff was not willing to compensate their mistake with a discount, some free drinks or at least a late check out. The hotel is at the sea. But you can not swim there. hotel access only by dirt road. Facilities like pool and subbed is good. room ok but small bed and tiny bathroom. restaurant and facility staff very friendly. reception staff needs training.

          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. -

          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.

          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!

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!

          The Dive Thru Scuba Resort is a really great Hotel”

          Staff - Attention to detai - Friendly service you feel like at home

          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!!!!!!!

          Our stay was good for relaxing but the beach is too rocky and cannot swim, a bit far from the hapenning but shuttle service available. You may not want to go out at night due to transportation is too costly.

          peaceful place to stay and great hospitality”

          confortable, quiet feel like home

          our first impression was bad because they forgot to pick us up from the pier even I told them about our ferry schedule by email. When I showed them my email, they apologised but not before accusing us not confirming them about the pick up time which was not true. After that everything was nice. Loft is not good for elderly because there are stairs you have to climb up and down a lot. Food were fresh especially fish and papaya. one annoying thing we have is they tried to charge us for extra blanket we asked, the room is so cool and they gave us only thin blanket. But when we complained, they removed the charge from our bill. Overall good place to stay but make sure they will come to pick you up, it is a complimentary service.

          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 !

          Always attentive and punctual to your needs”

          The place makes you feel relaxed and feeling like you're on a vacation. The staff are all friendly, from the receptionist down to the driver and security.

          It was a good stay, overall. It wasn't just that near to the beach front where one can actually swim. But they have a shuttle that will bring you there at a very friendly price. Food was good. The staff really takes good care of their guests from arrival to departure. I will go back. :)

          Very Very Good Service and good decorated hotel”

          Very good service provide everything, quiet for relax, staff were nice

          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.

          rocky road ,and the bed is 2 single bed combine ,this is not as what we expect “one bed” the frontdesk is not 24 hours available,if you looking for somewhere to relax this is better than alona , alona is for night life

          Relaxing stay!”

          Generally, we enjoyed our stay. Staff are so friendly and accommodating. Love the ambiance, its quiet and private. Its beachfront but in terms of accessibility, its a bit far from the highway. Renting tricycle is costly and renting a scooter can be a better option. So its good if you can drive. Have to commend the food, previous reviews didnt disappoint. Big serving, delicious and worth it!
