The Atlantis Dive Resort was great all around including the front desk staff, the restaurant staff and the dive center crew and dive masters. Everyone was very professional and made me feel welcomed. The diving near the resort and at Apo Island and Siquijor Island was spectacular. I recommend the whale shark snorkel excursion trip for divers’ off gassing day before flying – truly an amazing experience.
Atlantis Resort Dumaguete
The Atlantis Resort Dumaguete in Dauin on Negros Oriental in the Philippines is truly a beautiful place. The scuba diving resort has 38 rooms in several styles from deluxe to Ocean view. In addition, the view of the ocean from the beach is spectacular, and the surrounding gardens have several species of rare plants. Enjoy our blog article on the Destination Spotlight: Philippines.

Stayed at Atlantis dive resort in Dumaguete and Puerto Galera; both offered great logistical assistance from airport to resort and top level diving, hotel and restaurant operations. Dumaguete offers Muck diving and many odd creatures, with excellent dive guides and Puerto Galera offers coral gardens also with many strange creatures. Dumaguete is very quiet and secluded and great for macro photographers and intimate groups, Puerto Galera is also great for clear water pinnacle dives such as verde island. Both dive operations are well run and professional. Housekeeping was good at both locations and dining was also fine. So if you want an active social scene Puerto Galara has many options. For photography and muck diving and a look at local Philippine markets and tours Dumaguete is great. At both locations the resort managers keep a keen eye on customers satisfaction and all dive, restaurant and hotel staff are friendly and professional. Either or both are a great choice.
We stayed 7 days at Atlantis Puerta Galera and 6 days at Atlantis Dumagette. Overall I would rate our experience as outstanding. The staff at both resorts put a lot of effort into making our stay memorable. The diving was great, the food well prepared, and the accommodations comfortable. I would heartily recommend either resort to friends, and I do plan to return at some point in the future.
Atlantis Dive Center has a motto... Arrive as a guest, leave as a friend. I will say, they do live by it. The food is second to none. I've been to several all inclusive resorts, and Atlantis had the best food. The staff knew our names as soon as we arrived. I was amazed. The staff would do almost anything to ensure our stay was perfect. The dive operation is one of the most organized I've seen. Everything happened like clockwork. We were in... we were out... everything just happened.
