The hotel itself is well maintained, rooms are clean and spacious and staff really friendly and helpful. I really loved diving there. Nice dive sites and they do their best for divers. I couldn't keep up with an inexperienced group cause I was taking pictures so I had my personal dive guide all the way.

Hi Thanks for the kind words. We also feel that if you really want to focus on your photography, a personal guide for either you and your group is the best idea. You will either be rushed and never get the shot you want, or end up winding up the rest of the group that are waiting for you. Hope...

Me and 15 others visit this dive resort for 2 weeks. The staff are amazing, so helpful and just can't do enough for you. The hotel is very clean and well equipped. Normally on Holliday in 30 + degrees heat doing 3 dives a day, I would lose a little weight. However the food from the hotel was to good...

Hi Tina Thanks for your kind words and I'm very glad your group enjoyed their stay. I thought that running a dive center and diving every day I would keep at an ideal weight. Unfortunately because of the quality of our restaurant staff, I have put on 20 kilos over the last few years...something I really should do something about......

I will try and keep this short and to the point. 1. The rooms are more than functional with aircon, fans, maid service every day including fresh linen and towels. The rooms have TV with loads of channels (but that's not why you are here), and the mini bar (fridge) is well stocked and most importantly not a rip off....

Hey Guys Was a pleasure having all of you stay and dive with us. Thank you for the time to write us a review. It always means a lot to us. I think that is one of the most flattering comments I have ever read on Trip Advisor. It means the passion that we have for the resort and for...

I was part of a group that stayed at the Blue Ribbon Dive Resort for one week in April 2015. My objective was to experience as much diving as possible in the six dive days that were set aside. This amounted to two day dives per day as well as three night dives (Total of 15). The diving was excellent...

I was in Blue Ribbon twice (November 2012 and May 2015). It was to see, that the resort still keeps the same high standard, which each diver expects. - Who should go to Sabang? : recreational diver (there is a tech dive base in the area, but no any cave or deep ship wreck, so no meaning for a technical...

I chose this resort because of the comparatively high rate among those on the Sabang Beach, and also, to avoid the divers storm of other Chinese diving resorts. Frankly speaking, it's much better for staying and eating here. Diving is just so-so, but I still have some comments. (1) I arrived at noon. The reception desk was very friendly and...

Pub food standard but good pub food, delivered by attentive and friendly staff. Steaks cooked to order, no problems omitting allergy-foods from dishes and unsolicited glasses of water were perfect touches. Did I mention friendly service? Oh yes but it deserves a second mention because they showed that they care that you enjoy your meal. Once we'd worked out who...

Our goal was to get together in some remote dive resort to scuba dive, have fun and eat/sleep well. Only with the good nature of the hotel staff, the great diving and the good food at the hotel did we succeed in our quest.

This not a 5 star hotel, so if you like that kind of accommodation with a stiff formal politeness then this resort is not for you. The rooms here are basic and very clean.
