Reviews (6)


Our entire family thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Atmosphere resort.

The diving was amazing, we saw dozens of turtles at Apo Island, many sea snakes, beautiful corals and a huge school of jacks. The macro diving near the resort was also top notch, including the large house reef which can truly be done as a shore dive.

One of the best features of the resort is the snorkeling, which is shallow and right in front of the resort, and perfect for weak swimmers or small children.

The staff at the resort were all very nice. Amenities like the bar, 3 pools and spa were top notch. Any non-diver would still have an exceptional time at this resort. Food was truly 5 star, a rating I don't often give for food.

Rooms were very good, the standard suites and family rooms are close to the restaurant and pool, and more than adequate, even if a little sparse. Apartments are very nice and a "step up" for sure, but just a longer walk from the main resort area.

The dvie center is exceptionally well organized, each diver gets a camera station in a nice camera room, and also their own private "dive locker" to put their wetsuit , booties, etc.

The day trip for the whale sharks was one of the highlights. I thought it would be a little cheesy, but to see so many whale sharks up close in clear, blue water was a once in a lifetime experience.

I was glad I booked with Bluewater Travel , they were great in helping me select the perfect room, deciding when to go, and making sure the resort took good care of us. And they even got me a room upgrade for free. I'll be returning soon for sure.

High Quality resort with Excellent scuba diving facility, very spacious rooms, very nice bar and swimming pool.
You can choose between diving in the house reef, boat dives in nearby locations or to take a day tour to the nearby APO island or to one of the remote location such as Oslob to snorkel with Whale sharks or Siqijour Island.
the diving in the nearby location is mostly muck diving with a great variety of Macro opportunities especially frog fish that are found everywhere, the dive masters are very good at finding them and are accustomed to underwater photographers like me.

The staff is friendly and helpful and they aim to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
The only downside from my perspective is that the only option of food is the restaurant or the bar, the food is good but takes time that could be invested in an extra dive.

Atmosphere resort is an upscale resort that is a step above most dive resorts. If you want to be pampered this is the place. The diving is superb for macro, fish portraits, and wide angle at Apo Island. The diving is valet diving including the amazing house reef. I told them I could not do a shore dive due to my back. They convinced me to go and it was one of my top divers ever. I walked into the water and they brought out all my gear and put it on me and handed me my camera. The dive masters are excellent and will find you the smallest critters. The rooms are beautiful with all the amenities of a fine hotel. The food is very good but not great. Lunch and dinner are sit down and can take up some of your dive time if you let it. I did love the baked Alaska.

What an amazing experience. I was going primarily for diving and underwater photography . Very quick trip . Last minute my girl friend a non diver decided to join and amazingly turned out to be perfect for both of us.
I have never experienced service like that and i have traveled in many places around the world
staff was amazing - basically ready to take you any time . Organized gear , gave formal and detailed briefings based on your desires needs and skill levels and even carried gear to the boat . After the dive they give you hot towel and fresh fruit . They was a diver guide and a boat driver- _ almost didn't know what to do with such great service.
The macro sites near the resort were almost shocking to me . NOT huge reefs but coral heads and rocks but with the most amazing critters I have ever sen. I would not have sen most of it if it were not for the dive guides who clearly cater to photographers. They not only pointed out time shrimp crabs ghot gobbys and other but made them accessible for pictures and got out of the way . I Was stunned by it all . If you're not into macro probably not for you but if you are its off the charts
and shallow i think like 30 or 50 feet .
They are very safety conscious- checking gauges checking with me and safety stops.
Apo day trip a must - so much fun for diver and snorkelers alike - tons of crew and service on a really fun local style boat
great food great scenery and beautiful reefs with incredible wild life
There were typhoons in the area so water was cloudy but still had a blast - tons of sea snakes, garden eels etc
oh that reminds me they are so detailed that if you wan to see something in particular like mandarin gobbis they will take you out right at dusk and show you where they come out for only 15 min /day
NIght dive right off the beach was so great - guide carried back up gear and so much amazingly life right there!!!!
We did the whale shark snorkel which i highly recommend .
They drive you to a ferry and the van goes on the ferry to cebu- you really get a sense of being in the Philippines and seeing more then one place.
the whale sharks literally bump into you and because the fisherman feed them in the am they claim they are there every day . no flash allowed i brought a big slr housing - a mistake i would just use a point and shoot or go pro
be warned the place is packed with tourists and very crowded but still worth it .
Re the resort facility- its is very unusual - you can tell a lovor of love - every detail attended to and very good taste food and service very good
watch out for fire ants they are bad
its hot as heck but the AC in the rooms is great
outdoor showers very nice and believe it or not the internet works well in the rooms
massages cheap and fun experience in a beautiful setting
the adapter situation in the room is a little strange as its the regular two prong but for 220
the camera room is fantastco and has all the electrical etc you will need

One of the best little resorts all the way around. The resort is right on the water so you can just walk in. Macro photography is all that is offered in this region, but you can't beat the photos. The resort accommodations are amazing. Great photography prep room, good consistent wifi, friendly staff and the food the best quality.

You can't go wrong. I am going back.
