We had a wonderful time during our stay. My husband and my brother enjoyed several dives with Wilson. He was an awesome DIve Master! I only got to dive once at The Twin Peaks and it was beautiful! I enjoyed snorkeling off your beach.
On our trip back yesterday, my husband, my son and myself, all agreed that our stay at Solana was the best considering the people, the lodging, the food, the DM and the dive sites. We've been to Boracay and Puerto Gallera too.
The "baon" your staff packed for us for our trip to Puerto Gallera was excellent and such a brilliant idea. It made me feel like I was leaving from my parents' house- one of those family traditions. To see a lot of your staff wave goodbye as our shuttle boat drifted away, made us feel sad to leave.
Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat!!! It was a great experience at Solana. We will be back.

The diving was great and with the help and guidance of Celso, he made this for us, an unforgettable experience!!! All staff was brilliant and very helpful at anytime. We loved the atmosphere and the calm of the resort. And last but not least, the chefs did a super job with the food.
We wish Pete, Mary Ann and the rest of the management success for the years to come. They truly made us feel that we are in a home away from home. What more can you wish for on a diving holiday?

Solana is a place where the sun is bright
Solana also has such a beautiful sight
Solana is a place with lots of fish
And we also have a big kitchen dish!
Solana is a place where I have fun
Right under the bright warm sun
Solana is a place where people enjoy
And children even like the toys!
Solana can't get you out of my mind
Solana you are so much fun to find!

Thank you Solana for the wonderful stay!
Calvin Tang, Seattle WA Atlas Omega Northwest Dive Club
Had a great time at Solana, Anilao! Wonderful diving with highest density of great dive sites. Only need 10 minutes of boat ride to any of 12 or more dive sites.
Beatrice is the most beautiful with soft corals and thousands of small fishes. Secret Bay for critters and muck diving and Arthur's Rock for tiny to medium sized squids!
The service staff is never without a smile and always helpful.
I love Solana Resort. It is like a home away from home.

We had a really good time staying at Solana. The weekend was very peaceful, the service was great, the meals had a lot to offer for different tastes and well presented. The cottages facing the ocean are a great option if you are going with your soulmate, very romantic during sunset. The diving center is very good and they were very helpful with everything that we requested.
We would highly recommend Solana if you are planning to have a great time (diving, snorkeling, walking around the beach)!! We are looking forward to visit Solana in the near future.

I really enjoyed my stay at Solana. It has a very homey atmosphere and made me feel like it's my "own private resort." The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. The food is tasty and the service is very warm and cordial. I highly recommend this place and look forward to bringing my friends and family there for a weekend break.

My family and I had a wonderful time at Solana. You've done a good job renovating and sprucing up the place. The rooms look quite different with the new 'decor' but Solana hasn't lost its unique charm. I especially liked the new addition you placed above the dining area.
The staff were pleasant and polite. The servers did a remarkable job at each meal time. We were very pleased with the food and the attentive service.
My daughter enjoyed playing with the toys in the garden. The crayons and pens at the table by reception were perfectly suited for quiet activity.
My six-year old daughter says that Solana feels like an extension of the house or lola's (grandmother's) house - the big difference is, it's right by the water. She didn't mind the 200+ steps going down and going back up.
Thank you for a relaxing time away from the city.
We will definitely be back - soon I hope.

Solana was such a wonderful experience to us. It has definitely redeemed the once tired and worn out Anilao.
I like the family run style; 24 hours water and coffee bar with fruits, simple and balanced buffet meals, clean white towels etc. One particular compliment to your choice of bottled water; no smell of minerals!
Your charming resort resonates the Nordic spirit of "just right", no excess, no unnecessary abundance..in space, in provision, in a lot of things. You have played well the delicate balance between comfort and constraint.

We are just back from Dive Solana where we experienced Filipino hospitality and a wonderful overall stay. We praise Dive Solana Management and the entire staff. Everyone there is devoted to make your stay a superb experience. Diving in the area is a MUST and Dive Solana diving staff make it a memorable collection of picture perfect moments under the sea. Food is great and service meets a five-star standard.
We will certainly go back to Dive Solana and recommend it to everyone looking for tranquility, beautiful natural setting, great diving and a sense of being among family in your own piece of paradise.

I recently took a weekend break at Dive Solana with my family and mother who was visiting from Australia. Everything was superb at Dive Solana, the food, the service, the rooms. We were especially appreciative of the little extras, like the free use of the kayaks and the playdough for the kids to use in the lobby area. This place is a gem we'll be going back as often as we can.

I was part of a large group of ladies on a "girlfriends' getaway", seeking some bonding time away from the hustles of our everyday lives. Your resort provided us a beautiful and serene place to be as active or as dormant as we pleased. It had perfect spots for intimate conversation as well as areas to assemble the group. Your staff has been very courteous and pleasant. Thanks for a very memorable visit!
