The trouble with getting away from it all is often you get lost in the big business of tourism and this happens nowhere more than in your choice of lodging. Large resorts seem too often treat their customers like cattle and you sometimes feel like you need a vacation from your vacation.

Located 20 minutes south of Dumaguete, Mike’s Dauin Beach Resort has six standard and two deluxe roomsand therefore offers the comforts and facilities of a large resort but is small enough to give you the attention you need. Just a few meters from your room you will find a lagoon pool with a beautiful waterfall. Or if you would prefer you can go for dip in the resort beach.
The main focus of Mike’s Dauin Beach Resort is diving. They have a dedicated team of Instructors and dive guides available to help plan and guide you around the fantastic dives around Dumaguete’s coasts. The local dive sites near the resort are varied and fascinating.

Mike and his team of dive guides and Instructors between them have well over 50 years of experience under water. The resort offers full range of PADI scuba diving training from beginners to divemaster level.

When you get back from a day of diving or sightseeing, the resort’s bar and restaurant is ready to serve you a cold beer or a wide selection of food with an American and Mexican influence.
Mike, who hails from the San Francisco Bay Area, and his wife Joe Ann opened their Beach Resort with one goal in mind; and that was to provide not only a great place to stay but keep a friendly, relaxed family oriented place for both divers and tourists to Dumaguete.
