Absolute Disgrace/Disregard to Marine Life
First of all, there are 2 Halo resorts. I stayed in the new one in Secret Bay. Food and Room were fine. Hotel Staff was nice and attentive to you. However, let's talk about what I was for: DIVING. The DMs have a major fundamental diving issue. They broke coral with macro lives on every dive the whole time (5 days) I was there. On one occasion, I found some critter under a feather star. The DM came over and yanked out the whole plant and brought to another group of divers so they could take pictures. Not to mention, I have not even taken a picture yet. Worse yet, I later saw the DM broke off the tip of the feather star where the shrimp had no where to go so again, some photos can be taken. At the end, the shrimp disappeared. Eaten by a fish...maybe?! Also, harassing marine lives like octopus and seahorses just to "pose" them seems ok with the DM. What this "diving resort" does not understand is divers come to Anilao to see marine life. This kind of reckless behaviors destroy everything and at the end, nobody comes because nothing is in the water. At times, I doubt that they are actual DMs. Overall, shockingly disappointing underwater experience. If you like to contribute the destruction of Anilao, this is the resort to be in. Eww....
