Great place to stay and dive”

Very friendly and considerate staff

scandi divers was recommended by a couple of work colleagues. a basic but comfortable hotel right on the beach at la laguna. it's close enough to walk into town and far enough away to enjoy the tranquility of the beach. good food and cold beer from the quaint bar and kitchen at the front of the hotel. all the staff were very helpful and friendly. the diving was professionally run by qualified international staff. i had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay.

Great Service & Experience at Scandi Divers”

Professional Dive Staff, Great low key location & Friendly Service

I stayed 4 nights at Scandi Divers in late October of 2012. My experience was great. The diving instructor was patient and knowledgable, and the equipment was modern and up to date. Additionally, the room was nice and had a 32" flatscreen and a DVD player (I had the premium/deluxe room). The food is good, not great (industry standard for resorts of this caliber) Scandi Divers is definitely a place I would return to in the future.

Very relaxed hotel to stay”

Helpful staff, quiet, relaxed, good price

we spend 6 nights here for our divetrip during cny. we had the premium room, which was in good clean shape. comfy bed, ok shower, enough space for all your luggage. quiet nights! they clean your room every day, if you want them to. there is wifi available, but no reception in the hotelroom, only in restaurant. also, sometimes the electricity had a blow out, but i guess you'd get that problem in more phil. places. staff is very friendly and helpful. we dived with scandidivers too, the groups weren't too big and the schedule and plans were very flexible. everything was relaxed. also, great spot if you want to do some snorkelling. step outside the hotel in the sea and you already see some great coral and fish. they can also take you to nearby snorkelspots. big la laguna beach is the most prettiest and quietest beach of all three (small la laguna beach and sabang) and therefore nice to get some sun. sabang is only a 15 min. walk, so plenty of restaurants available. we decided to treat ourselves with the vip-airport transport service, which was very convenient.

Perfect as a diver”

Stay there few days, room on the second floor. The diving center and restaurant are just on G floor, boats are by the beach just in front of the center, it was really really convenient. There is also a bar on the rooftop which is quite nice. Going to Sabang takes 15mn by walk, 10mn by motorbike. I really appreciated that stay !

Small and friendly staffed hotel.”

Friendly staff - helpful - nice food/cooking - clear and water just infront of the hotel

Small hotel, which can be reached only by boat (avail on request close by) or approx 15-20mins walk to/from Sabang downtown. Especially at nights and high tide not so convenient to walk (less illuminated). Rooms are suitable equipped, but also interior partly not in the best condition anymore. Good for divers, as all euqipment inhouse and daily divings offered. The always friendly and helpful staff grant a relaxing time. Good food available all day through. The upper deck invites for a sun bath, overviewing the beach. This part of beach offers clear and clean water, which is a pleasure to bath in.

Deluxe pool room”

Location right on the beach and snorkelling is possible from the beach although dive boats come and go off the beach.Staff was friendly and offered me a welcome drink when I arrived. Food was good. Room was clean but very average. The water in the bathroom had a terrible smell to it! There is a very small pool but nowhere to sit around the pool. I also stayed at Lalaguna resort that is next door and room quality was very similar however Scandi won out for being friendlier. Wifi worked well whilst I was there.

serene getaway”

food was great,. price above average but quantity was bountiful.

check in was smooth even if our booking was via online. we just presented a printed hotel voucher and afterwards were already lead to our room. it was supposed to be a husband-wife date but the babysitter canceled last minute so we had to bring the kids with us - it imposed no problem at all to the hotel. they just made us pay for an extra bed at an affordable price. overall the experience was great. we were just a bit disappointed at the size of the pool. we were expecting a bigger one.

The location is nice away from the girly bars in Sabang

the hotel, is nice the room is basic but it has some small pros as ac, small fridge and tv, anyway it is not a bargain at all the swuiming pool is inside the building and has littel space there is no place to sun bathing but you can do this in the sundeck a floor upstairs where the bar is located, the place is nice and quiet. the dive center there is small so it is ok to dive in the nearby locations but it could be difficult if you plan longer divings like verde island, anyway i got to go there also.

Quiet location staff were funny an eager to please

It was ok got off on a ruff start shower was backed up my first night there. Kind of embarrassing having a girl take a shower in a flooded cr. then towards the end of the trip my friend used all the hot water and it didn't work anymore.. One time i asked for more towels and only got one. think the House keeper had a day off from work and hotel staff not want to pick the extra duties for one day. The dive instructor there was not the best at picking locations to dive, only concerned with selling course's and grouping people in one boat not the greatest experience.. Will dive with diff person next time .

优点: 虽然不是图片的房间,是酒店后面的民宿,但2人订了一间房,给了2房一厅的民宿,可以煮饭。一间有空调,一间仅有风扇。出门20米可迖海边。 缺点: 房间紧邻氧气瓶充气房,从早上六点一直工作到晚上12点,噪音非常大,2晚都没睡好,有点担心若有游人吸烟设备是否会爆炸。 最不满意的是冲凉水很极小,几乎没有热水(水太小不够压力,速热热水器启动不了)。 海滩太安静了。如果不是在大拉拉古娜学潜水,一定要住小拉拉古娜(与沙邦海滩相连)或沙邦海滩。
