The hotel is very well kept. It s a beautiful and peaceful place. The rooms are decorated with beautiful art pieces and are also very clean. I love the proximity to the beach. I found a little private spot to swim and enjoy the pristine waters. The food and service at the restaurant were wonderful, the waiters were very attentive, especially Jose, who was very kind and diligent. I love the gardens and the swimming pool. The hotel offers diving lessons, diving expeditions and rents the equipment. The staff at the hotel was very professional and friendly. The only thing I think needs to be improved is the wi-fi service. The wi-fi kept disconnecting and it was almost non-existent in the rooms. I had to go to the bar to get some wi-fi to take care of important personal and job-related issues. It was stressful at times, especially with the cancellations and changing flights due to the coronavirus. These days, travelers rely on wi-fi service in a hotel. Especially if it is promoted as a service the hotel provides. I stayed in the hotel for 10 days, the wi-fi service was very important for me. Other than that, the hotel is a wonderful place to relax, explore, and enjoy your vacations.

A lot of on-premise amenities (gym, spa, dive packages). Great snorkling path right to the reef. Restaurant was delicious. Staff was friendly and very attentive. Tour sites were relatively close from the property compared to staying in Cebu. Would definitely come back to do dive sites.

The service here was abysmal. The owner is a grumpy old man that wanders around the facility nitpicking at guests. The staff (rightfully) apologised for his behaviour but after a dreadful afternoon we took our custom to Club Serena down the road

This was the first dedicated dive resort my partner and I have ever stayed at and we were delighted with everything. Dolphin House has been designed with everything in very close proximity - the rooms, the dive centre, the bar/restaurant, spa and fitness suite. Our room was very clean, spacious, had firm foam mattresses on the beds and really good storage space. The team at the dive centre were great to dive with and had a range of lovely dive sites to choose from. We made good use of the spa and had fantastic Philippine massages from experienced masseurs. And ... to top it all ... the food was “to die for”. The chef had a wide range of mouthwatering dishes to choose from each day and she really knows how to make the most awesome deserts ! I’ll miss them greatly ! We got chatting to lots of other guests and make new diving friends here. A tip for others considering Dolphin House ... the journey from Cebu airport is only c.60 miles but the roads are very busy and you have to cross the hills to the other side of the island. Our journey took 3.5 hours but, when planning our trip, we had contacted the Dolphin House team and they offered us their service to collect us from the airport and take us back at the end of our holiday. It was well worth the peace of mind. Make sure you allow 3-4 hours for your transfer to/from the airport and you’ll have enough time. Really noticeably, all the staff at Dolphin House were lovely, very helpful and friendly. We had a great
