Dive guides (Om Maxi and Like) are good! Friendly staff but poor management and facilities”
The room is clean and nice but other facilities need an upgrade. -many mosquitos and flies. - diving equipment need to be upgarded (thank god I bring my own equipment). I saw one of diver use a broken BCD (looks ugly and dirty) -jetty and dive center shall be renovated. It looks poor and dirty. The sun deck is dirty. - The staff is friendly and helpful but the management system is a mess. On arrival in Sorong airport, I waited 1 hour in the airport for the pick up. I cannot reached any number available (driver nor resort). We ended up by hiring a taxi from airport to the port to catch the ferry schedule. - we have to re-planning the dive because they did not have enough fuel for the boat. - pricing is too high. - canoe /kayak is available for free buat very dirty. - the hotel/room is not private because some people/visitor can pass by. So we don’t know who is staff of hotel or not. For safety reason, its not comfortable. -food is good, tasty.

Excellent”
Great team always at your service and making you feel like a family. Thanks particularly to Maxi, Like and Ritna. They went out of their way to make us comfortable. However the main issue at the resort are the prices of activities. I understand the gasoline is expensive and it is remote (however tbh i didnt feel Waigeo was so remote, the city center has a market and shops with all things available at reasonable price). But one day trip to Piaynemo at 6.9 Million rupees is quite a rip off (even though it takes 1.5h to go). So better find other guests from the hotel to go with you and share the huge cost. Diving prices also are crazy: you need to pay USD75 for a dive (minimum 2 dives) so USD150, and it doesnt include the equipment rental! I have never been to any dive shop which makes you pay the equipment rental aside and at USD50/day. The owner should really review the pricelists, it is really out of the mind. Luckily the staff of this resort really made the difference!

Clean, comfortable accommodation on the beach. Wonderful, friendly staff. Amazing food”
Front Desk- Service was prompt, cordial, and thorough. No request is too small. Food- was consistently outstanding. Chef Ritna’s menu for lunch and dinner includes meat, local fish, lots of vegetables, rice, fresh fruit, and soup. They also serve a good hot breakfast and tea that includes these addictive crispy fried bananas. Ritna is an amazing chef. Her food is easily the best Indonesian food I’ve ever had. The dining room attendant, Lisa, is prompt, attentive, and always smiling. The staff is happy to customize a tour package and will work with you on pricing. Realize, when you book a tour, you are employing for the day a driver, boat captain, local guide, and personal dive guide, and don’t forget that gas and everything else there is very expensive. The thing that impressed me the most about Waiwo is that the staff was not only gracious, but, as a single traveler, so many of them went out of their way to make me feel at home.

Conveniently located near to Waisai port but boat charter price is exceptionally high . ”
Excellent staff service level with clean environment. Only set back is the boat arrangement which is costly if unable to gather a group for cost sharing. Boat charter to Wayag is costly at about 12-13million rupiah (about USD1,000). They blamed the high diesel cost (oil price is down) which will hamper the eco-tourism industry .

Just got home from short trip to Raja Ampat. Really rested in a remote place which full of pure nice nature and very nice people. The owner of the resort were very helpful and friendly as well as the ”
Waiwo Dive Resort is a perfect place to stay. The fine nature and a very nice staff is a good combination. The food was so good that I gained some kilos when we stayed there. Will go back again one day. Highly recommended for single travelers, groups and family with children to stay.

Big disapointment”
cotage located just 10 meters from the sea, food was quite good, staff tried to be helpful, but they do not speak English, so it was hard to explain everything
During 5 days of stay we had only cold water under the shower, plenty of times we experienced break in electricity (power) supply. The hotel is overpriced, the beer in the bar was warm, or the bar was closed, the price of beer exstremely high as for indonesian conditions. The prices of diving in the resort dive shop do not match the reality, double overpriced, the resort is located to far from the most beautiful places in this area so it is not possible to get quickly to the most interesting islands. Menager of resort was helpful and tried to help, to resolve some issues like lack of wifi, he borrow me the modem so it was fine. General opinion and impression is no good, almost every day there were big company events there,no conditions to have a quite rest.

Bijzonder goede personeel,zelfs gebracht tot aan de ferry en uitstekend duikindtructuur. ”
Goede ligging, goede personeelsleden, altijd klaar om te helpen. Een gekwalificeerd duikindtructuur (werk met volle liefde) Het eten is soms bijna hetzelfde. De Chinese gasten maken regelmatig lawaai, rookverbod wordt niet gerespecteerd zelfs aan tafel wordt gerookt. Een van de personeel deed niets als het gevraagd wordt om op te treden.

если Вы - дайвер”
отличный дайвинг с местным центром, снорклинг и только местные вокруг
Даже лучше, чем ожидал. В low season резорт почти пустой, всё, что есть - почти персональное. Отличный дайв центр с классными гайдами. плавать с ними - сплошное удовольствие. Местный риф тоже великолепный. Персонал приятный, отзывчивый, с отличным английским. Никаких проблем, сплошные положительные эмоции. Кормят хорошо, но без изысков. Пиво бывает не всегда)) Если вилла в саду, а не на берегу, то вечером может быть шумновато из-за соседнего бара через дорогу. но в меру. Если уходите плавать и оставляете ключ на ресепшене, то комнату уберут. В целом, за свои деньги вполне достойный вариант. Посетители - в основном местные, а-ля средний класс (тоже по-английски многие говорят свободно). иностранцев почти нет.

Dejligt resort”
Jeg havde bestilt 3 overnatninger på Waiwo dive resort, men fik desværre kun 2 da min flyafgang blev ændret, så jeg måtte tage tidligere afsted. Resortet ligger helt fantastisk, med dejlig sandstrand og gode dykker steder lige i nærheden. Resortets kok Ritna Lohonauman, laver fantastisk Indonesisk mad og yder en udpræget service. I det hele taget ydede personalet under mit 2½ dags ophold en meget god service og alle var smilende og hjælpsomme. Det var en fornøjelse. Da jeg blev nødt til at aflyse min sidste overnatning, bestilte og betalte resortet i stedet en overnatning på et godt hotel i Sorong. Desuden sørgede de for transport til havnen i Waisai og transport fra færgelejet i Sorong til hotellet. Det havde de faktisk ikke behøvet, det var jo ikke resortets ansvar at mit fly blev aflyst. Det eneste minus var, at stolene foran min hytte, ikke var særligt magelige. Alt i alt var det en meget meget positiv oplevelse at bo på Waiwo dive resort.
