Busy and I looked for a dive resort that is just near when we found Summer Cruise Dive Resort in San Luis, Batangas. This dive resort is perfect if you are in a budget but you want to snorkel, freedive, or scuba dive! So, if ever you want a quick weekend getaway, chill, or explore the ocean, you have to stay here.

Parking Area

We were supposed to be brought by this boat to the resort, unfortunately the waves are very strong. So, the boat man said he can’t bring us to the resort.

So, instead of taking the boat, we walked for 100 meters to reach the resort. At first we passed by some houses, then these rocks until we reached the resort.

3. Play with the Pets, or bring your own

YES! They are pet friendly. Summer Cruise has its own pets, these cats. They are very playful and close to the people, you can feed them if you want. I played with them, and I fed them a bit of fish, that’s why they kept on sitting beside us.

4. Read a Book

There is a lot of books in the resort, but most of them are in Japanese. Even though they are in Japanese, I tried to read one comics and it was a bit entertaining hahaha.

6. Try Fishing or Watch the Fish and Crabs

We never tried fishing, but we’re sure we can catch some by just standing in the resort because there are a lot of fishes around!

Fishing rods

Here is one of the crabs roaming around.

Here is our view when you just look at your side from the resort, there are a lot of fishes already. Plus there are Jellyfish around, but according to the locals they don’t sting that much. Some fisherman in the area pass by them and they don’t feel anything.

Happy and Busy’s Smileys for Summer Cruise Dive Resort

Overall we had a great time in the resort. It was a bit far from civilization so we really felt like we were in a very far province in the Philippines. Plus everything in the resort is affordable. We’ll bring our family and friends here soon so they can also enjoy it.

Cleanliness

The resort was kept clean even though once in a while there are falling leaves.

Facilities

Service

All of the staff are very kind and accommodating. One cook even knocked in our door and told us that she is going home so she cooked our food and she told us that the other staff can heat it up for us, or if we want anything else, the other staff can cook it for us.

Value for money

Everything is affordable! Especially the introduction to scuba diving. The rooms are also priced properly.

Location 

It is a bit far from Manila, and we had to walk a few meters or ride a boat to reach it. But it was all worth it, it’s not that hard too. It has a perfect location too because it’s just between the mountain and the sea, so we can easily see fishes and crabs.

Ambiance
