        Best in class customer service and amazing food! ”
        We love everything about Sangat Dive Resort! The experience was superb special mention to Kat and Marjo who was very accommodating and really explained well about the island, the resort and his very entertaining storytelling about everything! We felt welcome in the island since mostly are foreigners are checked-in here. Not much of locals which can be quite expensive. The food was amazing too, kudos to the Chef and team! The monkeys are very entertaining. Just be careful with your stuff. Marjo explained it well so luckily we did not lost any of our stuff. It's very secluded which I really like and it's a very clean resort. It's exotic too and you have the sense of privacy to relax. But I think something is missing here to make the people come back more... maybe you need to hire a community manager to make everyone feel that Sangat is their second home and they'll crave to come back very soon. Like a community of divers hidden paradise in Coron. But overall, it was great!

        If you wanna hear the waves and snorkel infront of your bungalow lay on a beach chair wholeday long, this is the best place. *there’s beach front bungalow and behind of them another bungalows are there. I recommend you to take beach front. You can have a wonderful view and the beach infront of you.

        The island and resort were paradise. ”
        The private island was beautiful and very well laid out. You had your private cottages well spaced for privacy. We were greeted by a family of monkeys, the only ones we saw on the whole trip. It’s location for scuba diving and snorkeling was the best!! 5 minutes from the best wreck diving in the Philippines. The garden reef was spectacular. The dive shop and guides were very professional with excellent diving. The only subject that could use a little improvement was the food. There was plenty with lots of variety but there entres could have been better. Best stay in the Philippines our whole vacation.

        Holidays at its best!”
        We stayed 3 nights at Sangat island resort and had a great time. The island is stunning! We were staying in a beach bungalow with a superb view and going to bed with the noise of the ocean. The room was basic yet comfortable witha nice balcony overlooking the shore. We are not divers but really enjoyed snorkeling around the island, the reef is beautiful. If you are a diver i would say this is the place to be. There is a great dive centers and the forst wrecks are just around the corner. The evenings and nights are also pretty cool with 2 bars and plenty of people to meet and speak with. Great time overall and we would definitely be back.

        Great place to rest and dive, a bit isolated from Coron! Ideal for couple’s or family holidays!”
        The resort is beautiful and the staff is 5 stars, it is a great place for diving adventures and to get some rest away from the noisy crowds of Coron. The only downside I would say is that nothing is included in the room rate so expect meals, tours and drinks to be an add on, the resort is also an eco resort that only has cold water for showers, food is standard quality. Appart from that everything was great!

        A perfect place to relax and dive”
        A superb setting - one of the most picturesque beach locations I've stayed in. Very friendly service and spacious, clean rooms opening onto the beach. Perfectly located for the famous Coron wreck-diving and very experienced and personable dive instructors (with the speedboat making trips much quicker). All meals are included and the food is very good, though could potentially benefit from more variety for longer stays. Generally though, absolutely superb.

        Don’t just drop in to sleep. One night stand is shallow, but if you must... I had 8:40 am arrival and spent much of check-out day at resort. The resort is located near many of destinations of tours and dives. Lovely facility built by a life ambition of Andy and his wife. Snorkel in the bay, kayak to Coral Garden. Three delicious buffet style meals. Paradise setting. Well run and managed.

        Wonderful place to stay”
        What a wonderful place to stay. We loved very much this house. 2 rooms, 1 is very spacious and the bed is just great. All I very clean, a wonderful private garden and a nice pool fresh enough to start your day. They're cleaning every day and you will discover your secret bodyguard Rocky, a lovely dog who will survey the house for you. the kitchen is very complete and you can easily feel at home. The zircon is more than enough and you have a cable tv (mostly Philippino and some US). the place is very quiet and SAFE. We rented a car and it was just perfect. You will need 15 min by car to reach Alona Beach or 15 min to reach Tagbilaran Town and City Mall. Perfect. Nothing to say negative here and we will surely come back. Thanks also to the maid and her husband, ready to serve you with smile. the only negative point is the beach : the closest one is biking beach and you can't go there by walk. So you need a scooter or a car. this is why we put only 4 stars for the situation

        Hidden gem for divers”
        Sangat Island Dive Resort is a diver’s paradise. It has as many as 11 shipwrecks around the island (ask resort for confirmation) and lots of coral reefs to explore, all within 20-minute boat ride. Each trip is only 1-1.5 hours with the dive itself 40-50 mins at 9am, 11am, and 2pm each day. You have enough time to come back to the resort for a break or a short meal before heading back out again for another dive. Personally I find that super relaxing and convenient. If you decide not to continue with another dive in the afternoon, you’re not suck on a boat getting sunburnt. Also, staff at Sangat is the best I’ve met in all the resorts I’ve been to (I go to resorts all over the world at least 2-3 times a year). They’re not just nice and professional, but also personable. One of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Will definitely come back! Highly recommend!

        That's what you call service”
        It's the service and people that makes it stood out amongst my travel experience. They took care of you without any fuzz from food, pick up, and the experience. They take care of your pick up from anywhere and sending you back to airport for free. It's full board so breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner are inclusive except alcohol. The food are excellent as they cater to local and international cuisine. My vegetarian friends are also taken cared of as they have selection of vegetarian food. They also serve soup, salads, desserts, and juices during meal. Food is enough for everybody. They have set times for meals: 730am, 1pm, 4pm and 730pm. But if you missed it, they are fine to prepare you something. On New Year's Eve, they prepare outside for us to party but too bad it rained after serving the dinner. They prepare 2 roast pigs for us. They allowed us to help at the bar and played music. Alcohol is strong, more than what you get at a bar. Value for money. Only con is wifi is very bad.

        Not nearly long enough”
        My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights here. The staff was more than accommodating, food wonderful, and views.. even better. We weren't necessarily there for the diving but did manage to sneak onto one of the tours as snorkelers which was awesome. Seemed as though we brought the winds and rough seas with us as we didn't get to do as much as we maybe would have liked due to this. All and all it turned out to be for the best. We enjoyed every meal prepared by the chef. Being a chef myself, I was pleasantly surprised with the authenticity, presentation and overall quality of each meal. Marie, Glad, Annalynne, Bryan were amongst the stellar staff members that waited on us hand and foot. Thanks in advance for your hospitality! We're already planning our return for next year. It was more than we expected and were sad to have only booked 4 nights in paradise. More reason to come back to share this beautiful place with our extended family. Thanks for the unforgettable time.

        Incredible location”
        The location is unbelievable. The staff is really helpful and caring, thank you Eliza for spoiling us and accomodating all our requests. We really enjoyed the food and coming from Italy we tend to be very picky about it.. There is fresh fish every meal, many choices of fresh fruit and vegetables beautifully cooked. Alcoholic drinks are very cheap as well. We particularly enjoyed kayaking around the island with stunning views of the islands and bays nearby and litterally no boats around. Diving is well organised even though we haven't been particularly lucky in terms of visibility. No complaints about the cottages. There is no air con and hot water but you don't really need it and to me it was a plus. Wi fi is very temperamental and signal is very poor. My only advice would be to provide some shampoo and an extra towel for the beach. Highly recommended!!!

        Fantastic dive resort - perfectly located for wreck diving”
        We had a fantastic time at Sangat. There are numerous wrecks that are accessible within minutes of the resort. They can be easily accessed by anyone with PADI Open Water (but equally the dive centre can help you to get certified too, which would also include some dives around some of the shallower wrecks). The rooms are large and rustic but charming. The food was on the whole delicious and balanced, including lots of vegetables/salad (which we found to be difficult to track down on menus in other parts of the Philippines). The beach itself and the beach bar are stunning, with an extremely laid-back atmosphere. All in all an incredible experience.
