The kitchen serves fresh, homemade foods from all over the world. Choose from great Mexican, American, Continental or Asian meals. Of course local fresh seafood from the market is also a specialty.
Diving with Mikes Beach Resort
The world wide web is full of praises for diving in Dumaguete, respectively Dauin and Apo Island. To enjoy this world-class destination in Negros Oriental at its best, one also need to dive with a professional and safe dive operator.
The two 70 foot bancas are designed to meet all scuba diver needs, no matter if you go on a daytrip to Apo Island, snorkeling with the whale sharks or do muck diving in Dauin. Mikes dive-guides have thousands of dives on under their belt and know each clownfish and turtle by their first name.

If you want to try diving for the first time in your life, sign up for the Discover Scuba program. You get either a great “once-in a-lifetime” experience, or become an addict to the underwater world.
A day at Mike’s Beach Resort
If planning to go to Mike’s Beach Resort with family and friends from Dumaguete, one is usually more than welcome. There is a small fee to use the facilities and the pool. In any case, one should get in touch with the Beach Resort in Dauin ahead of time. When it is high season, the Resort closes sometimes its gates for walk in guests.
We heard some bad mouthing about that practice around Dumaguete. However, we think this is more than appropriate. The main source of most Dive and Beach Resorts in Dauin is simply Scuba Diving. Now if guests fly around the half world, spend thousands of Euro or Dollar to spend their week of holiday in a nice small boutique resort. The facilities from pool to kitchen and toilets of those resorts are also planned and build to serve their in-house guests and staff. A resort with 8 rooms usually caters up to 20 people maximum.
