Long Beach , CA
United States

The Philippines are known for great macro and wide angle underwater photography and Atmosphere Resort and Spa is one of the best places I have ever stayed. What made this place so special is that I was traveling with my girlfriend who is a non-diver, but loves to snorkel, and Atmosphere is perfect for both her and I. Atmosphere is the only place that I have been to that offers a snorkeling guide (just like a dive guide) that showed her around and made sure she got to see all that Apo had to offer. He even would use her gopro to video her so that she got a personal video. We also went on land excursions to the market, the waterfalls, downtown shopping and to the Soup Kitchen that Atmosphere sponsors which was a very special place to see. It is worth giving up one of your dives to see the kids at the kitchen and how happy they are and how dedicated the people who staff it are.

Atmosphere is a world class RESORT and SPA. The suites and one bedroom apartments are like having your own private deluxe home on the property. Complete with Kitchens although the food is so good there, you don't need to use them. The well manicured grounds include lush vegetation, palm trees, a seaside negative edge pool, restaurant, Bar, gift shop, dive area and camera room with individual cubes. I can not say enough about the Spa service and facilities at Atmosphere. We bought a package that included 6 treatments and each one was unique and relaxing. You must try the Water Massage!

Diving: I have dove some incredible macro and muck sites in Anilao, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea, but the macro/muck at Atmosphere was truly special. Mimics, wonderpus, coconut, and hairy octopus species were regularly seen. An house reef was one of the best sites hosting an active colony of mating mandarinfish, multiple species of lionfish, frogfish, pipefish (ornate, robust, etc.) eels, rare shrimp and tons of other unique finds. Every dive was like a scavenger hunt with the dive guides assisting as much or as little as you wanted. Not only was the macro incredible, but the 30 minute boat ride to Apo Island provided great wide angle options with an abundance of turtles, walls, drift dives, sea snakes and schooling fish. And for an add-on, you can take the ferry over to Cebu where you can swim with the whale sharks of Oslob.

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.

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

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.

Visited on 05/2012 - Submitted on 01/28/2015

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.
