Holiday description: 11 Night at the Atlantis Dumaguete
9 out of 10! Only thing stopping it being a 10 was the weather, and I know that was just down to luck.
We had a fantastic 11-night stay at Atlantis Dumaguete. The resort itself was very good – lovely food, almost all waiter-served with a different menu every day; beautiful gardens and a lovely beach; and a very good and extremely reasonable spa. The dive centre couldn’t do enough for me; they were happy to run local boat dives for a single diver, were very good a critter-spotting, and did all the carrying of equipment, and washed all my gear for me at the end of the holiday.
The dive centre had good facilities including an excellent camera room. I did a day-trip to Apo island – we didn’t have the best weather which affected visibility, but I think the dives there would be excellent in normal conditions. We also did the day-trip to Oslob to see the whale sharks which was brilliant, and even the car and ferry trip to get there was enjoyable.
