The Perfect Dauin Resort
We loved our stay at Mike’s. The resort is clean and well-maintained, and had everything we needed. The rooms are spacious, AC worked great, and the beds are comfortable – a rarity in Asia that I treasure after enduring hard mattresses for a while! We’re underwater photographers and our room had plenty of spaces for drying, cleaning and charging cameras. Food was great and prices were fantastic.
I can’t say enough great things about the atmosphere and service. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful, and Mike is always around chatting with guests, making sure you’re well taken care of. You always feel welcome. And if they don’t have what you want, chances are Mike knows someone and will procure it for you. He brought in a couple to do a massage for us right in our room. We really loved the intimate atmosphere. And our dive guides were fantastic – great humor and really good eyes for spotting all the wonderful macro critters. We appreciated the small groups too – makes macro photography much more enjoyable when you feel free to spend time with a subject.
We dove three days at Dauin and one at Apo Island. Apo was some of the best coral growth we’ve seen in a while, and had lots of turtles and schools. We were equally impressed with the Dauin sites. There are a bunch of great sites right off the beach and I think only Lembeh Straights had more diversity of macro life. However, the critters in Dauin were more active than we’ve seen elsewhere. Maybe because of less divers? We hardly saw anyone else on the sites. The boat Mike’s runs is a large and comfortable banca.
We walked down the beach our last day peeking in other resorts and were really glad we had chosen Mike’s. We will be back!
