We stayed here while visiting Oslob to swim with whalesharks and visit Tumalog falls. The rooms were quaint, clean and definitely worth the value. They were much more spacious than other places we have stayed in while in Cebu. However, the best part about this accommodation was how wonderfully helpful and friendly the owners were. Someone was always around to... More

We are a travelling couple, staying for one nite at Oslob for whaleshark watching the morning next day. Malonzo Pension House is cute little pension house in the town of Oslob, owned and run by a very hospitable local family. My husband had problems with his legs after completing 42k marathon in Kawasan Falls. Mom Eva was quick to offer... More

This is more like a 3 star hotel rather than an inn or pension house. Absolutely crystal clean, average size room for a family of four, and Filipino hospitality at its best! On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give this inn a rating of 9 but if they provide TV's in the room, a PERFECT 10 for... More

Stayed here while visiting the town of Oslob, south of Cebu City for whale watching. For $34 you get a room good for 2 adults with full bath/shower. Staff/owners are very friendly and helpful in arranging the whale watching and a waterfall side trip. The pension house is very clean!

The first thing we noticed upon entering the room was the welcoming towel folded into a flower which made us feel at home in an instant! All the people there are polite, friendly, social and willing to help all the time. For example: I asked the manager how to fold the towels and she humbly came and gave us a... More

Only stayed here for a night and actually regretted not staying there longer, because we were booked and already paid for another place in the area. If only we could get our money back, we would have gone back to Malonzo and spent the rest of our stay there. The house is relatively small and even though the place doesn't... More

I was very pleased with my stay here. I came to Oslob to see the whale sharks and I needed a place to stay. I was very pleased with the whole experience. The owners are very nice and super accommodating. The room itself is just fine. Has excellent wifi connection and also has a very nice flat screen TV. The... More

It's a big surprise that my best staying experience in Philippines happened in a small town like Oslob. The hostess Eva is a sweet and reliable lady. The environment is clean and relaxing. I won't hesitate to stay there again if i ever go back to Oslob.
