      Awesome spot for Scuba”
      Great for scuba. Great Filipino food buffet (average if you're pallet is westernized) staff is super friendly. Nice pool and the view of the sunset is AMAZING! Now the cons.... If out don't have you're own car and taking public transport. Good luck getting there. Water pressure is average to poor. Not sure if it was isolated to our room, however the plumbing smelt pretty bad (had to leave the exhaust fan on) It's no Ritz, but Overall it was a very pleasant experience!

      1. if u have no car, these dive planet is located in very tricky place there was no jeep, u has to use only tribicycle but some drivers didnt like to go here cause it took more 30m from city, 2. reception didnt explain anything when i check-in . they just informed me my check out time and gave my room key. so i needed to ask for detail things before they explained me 3. there was no shop,, only 1 resteraunt these plant operating ,, but they usually closed early evening and after 7pm, u cant do anything .. it`s already so dark,, there even dont TV or refrigirator, ohh. and the buffet they serve is very disappointing , ( actuaally u should pay additional 500pesos for buffet, but they dont explained it in advance,, ) if u have dinner , the waiter will bring u some pork and chicken that heated in oven... it was like buffet actually... 4. for those of u who like reading books under tree,, this places would be nice, but for me here was really boring..

      Location is a bit remote and difficult to get. We got a private driver from Airport (SGD 150) to bring us there. There is not much to do, and facilities around. It rained a bit when we were there. Staff is very friendly and accommodating, and you can just text the reception as room service. The reception is all the way down at the front (operating hours 8am-6.30pm) ⁃ The dining area was just mid way, above the reception (operating hours breakfast 7am, lunch 12pm-2.30pm, dinner 7pm) Food ⁃ food is nice and decent. You can choose between PHP 500 for buffet or PHP 200 for set meal (2meat, rice and soup) to which they give a gracious portion nothing much to do here except three things ⁃ Island hopping PHP 3000, 4hrs, 1-8pax, 2 dive/ snorkel location ⁃ Snorkeling ⁃ Diving ⁃ Fortunately when we went island hopping it didn't rain,

      I like the place. Not so satisfied with the "BUFFET" there was this one dish that I loved, when I asked for a refill they said there was no more of it. There were just a couple of customers and they ran out. How is that a buffet? Everything else is okay. Hopefully, they will be able to fix the dining system.

      Check in time is 2pm, we informed them ahead of time that we'll check in late. We arrived approx 11pm. Tip: price we got from Agoda (regular room) is approx 2500-2600 php food not included. If you book at Planet dive you can get it for 3500 with 4 (buffet)meals. We then just had to pay buffet breakfast meal valued at 500 (ea pax). Pro: Staff was so accomadating and let us check out late (4pm) since I finished diving late. Over all I recommend this place, value for money is good especially for divers. Regular room can accomodate up to 4 persons. They allow pets inside the resort (how cool is that) Cons: Resort needs upgrading.

      Great place for skin diving ”
      Had the place to ourselves for 2 days (Thursday and Friday). During our last 2 days though (Sat and Sun), the place was already packed with people. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay. The place is great for skin diving (which my boyfriend and I loved to do). The waters directly in front is the best spot for diving, I think, since all the other boats from other resorts go there for diving also. The only thing we didn't like was how expensive the food and rentals were. We ended up just eating out (10-min drive from the place, we found a local who would cook for us whatever we requested) for 3 days and we tried their set meals on our 4th and last day. Rentals of fins, snorkel and masks cost a lot for 2 people. I suggest they make it part of the room package. Anyway, good thing the room (including the bathroom) was clean and spacious. We also had the best view of the sea. All in all, we'd come back for another diving vacation.

      If you want to getaway to see marine life, nature, outdoors, this place is great. We stayed at a sea facing room with our own terrace. Food was great and worth the expense. Room, beddings very comfortable. Friendly staff. Highly recommended.

      great for snorkeling”
      The location is convenient from Manila, about a 2 1/2 drive. As is typical for Anilao/Mabini properties, food is served as a buffet, in generous portions but nothing special. The rooms have nice views but are generally pretty spartan. I was not thrilled with the bathroom, mainly because it stank like an outdoor toilet. The upside is that the house reef is just a walk into the water and the sea is brimming with various fish and sea life. Worth a stay but keep your expectations in check.

      Best 2 things are: 1 great stuff, 2. Dog friendly. I booked the date wrong, but the staff were able to handle my situation fast. Toilet in the room are clean, air-condition is great, only negative are the pillows, I suggest you bring your own if you are particular with it. Facilities are pretty simple, there is a long deck facing the sea with lounges, basically just it, I spent my entire day, snorkelling after the intro dive; sun bathing & reading on the deck. and my dog just chill, swims with me etc. there are a lot of stair way so if you are travelling with elderly if have to take note. but the rest are great.

      Don't stay unless your diving”
      It's too far from town proper. So, if you don't have a car, you'll spend around 300 pesos, one way for a tricycle. Going to the resort is not a problem since there's a lot of tricycle when you ride from a town proper but leaving the place is a bit of problem if you don't arrange your transportation. The room is clean but there's no TV. So, there's nothing to do here unless your diving. They don't have menu for food. They just have a buffet if there's a lot of people and then a set meal if you don't want the buffet. Buffet is 500 per head then the set meal is 200. The staff are ok, only few who are friendly and willing to help you. Wifi is bad and bad phone signal. So, If your looking for a queit place with almost no connection from the outside (no TV & slow internet) this is a place for you.

      The place doesn't resemble the name, but....”
      The overall experience was okay. The Batangas area has gone from extremely affordable crap places and high end luxury places when seeking accommodations. Planet "Dive" is headed in the direction of its name. Mold on the curtains, bath towels as thin as paper towel and coarser then your mother-in-law's sense of humor. Food provided in the buffet was cold, tasteless and definitely geared toward drinkers who drink and don't care about food or what they eat (ever). We ventured off the property for all of our meals, after the initial attempt to try a lunch buffet, no ala carte. Definitely has pluses for divers who dive, drink and sleep, with no idea of where they land at the end of the day of diving or care. However, if you are a couple seeking a little R&R and peace, this is not the place. Divers hanging out and drinking after dives are loud and go for sometime. Overall the place is a hike up and down, up and down stairs since it is on the hillside. Trikes end after 7 PM we are advised so getting one to get the heck away from the resort takes some planning. Great resort down the beach with clean facilities and great kitchen, called Buceo Anilao. Also, a 20 plus minute trike ride gets you to the La Chevrerie (way overpriced) has good food and menu (plus atmosphere. But again, this is the extreme on the bipolar of the Planet Dive's deliverables. Good for locals who don't have the any expectations.

      Unless diving, don't bother ”
      Fresh air, sound of waves and the road home
      The whole Island is a bit of a dive. Half an hour drive gets you to a 7/11 and not much else. I don't believe that I've ever been to a hotel that doesn't have a menu, and only serves a small amount of dishes. Unless you're there to dive, there really isn't much else for you. Wifi did basically nothing, no TV and no bar besides one type of local beer. It's quite dull, and no where nearby to escape to when you're bored. That's not their fault though, that part of batangas is more of an industrial area than a holiday spot. Beach is large stones and the stairs going up and down are unpleasant. Rooms was dull, but reasonably clean though.
