Atlantis Dumaguete

We had a fantastic 11-night stay at Atlantis Dumaguete. The resort itself was very good – lovely food, almost all waiter-served with a different menu every day; beautiful gardens and a lovely beach; and a very good and extremely reasonable spa. The dive centre couldn’t do enough for me; they were happy to run local boat dives for a single diver, were very good a critter-spotting, and did all the carrying of equipment, and washed all my gear for me at the end of the holiday.
