Rooms are basic and a little bit outdated, but clean and comfortable. The hotel is very well located in a quiet area close to restaurants and diving centers. The swimming pool is big and wonderful with lots of deck chairs to lay. A perfect place to stay between dives or to use wifi. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The... More

Pros: 1) Walking distance to where all the actions (dive shops, bars, restaurants) are 2) A small swimming pool to chill out after diving. I like the small pool bar. The deepest is 5m and length i think is approx 12m 3) Good masseur 4) cable tv to kill the night 5) large clean room and bathroom 6) A mini... More

We were there as a group as my son was participating in a longboard competition, near moalboal. We have chosen Marcos's as the staff, Edith, was very responsive to our queries on providing transport arrangements. She is also helpful in helping us to tie with the transport operator. Thumbs up. The resort is pretty cosy with not many rooms. We... More

We've been there for 3 nights and I must say it's a more than decent accommodation in Moalboal Panagsama beach. They have a big nice swimming pool, different kinds of breakfast menu to choose in the morning, from the american to the philipino one with fresh grilled fish. The straw roof cottages are scattered throughout the tropical garden, they are... More

Stayed at Marcosas for a couple of nights last Jan 2014. The room we originally booked for was the Hideaway with kitchen but found it too small for 3 people and decided to move to a room with out the kitchen. The room we end up with was more spacious and also clean. The only downside was the shower was... More

This is a little oasis with beautiful gardens and charming cottages. The cottages are clean and modest. The swimming pool is great but not used by us enough during our stay as we had mild weather. The staff are polite and unobtrusive. Highly recommended if going to Moalboal.

This is a great place to stay if you are ever in the Philippines. I would return to stay here again if the time ever arose. Good points Wifi is available in the lounge/restaurant area, making sure that you can still keep in contact with your loved ones back home. Definite plus point when being aboard. Just a note, keep...

Spent 13 nights with a group of friends from Australia on a diving holiday. I stayed in Cottage No. 3 which was large, adequately appointed, quiet at night and at Aus$80 per night including breakfast great value for money. This is a small resort and we had the garden and large pool to ourselves more often than not. Edith and... More

Great place to stay, clean and great value. Edith and EnEn are great hosts and look after all of your needs. The rooms are air Con and cleaned daily. Breakfast included and easy access to the Blue Abyss Dive shop. Spend a little extra and get the seaside villa!

Super clean with a great staff! The food, drinks, and pool (w/ slide) were great as well. Centrally located in Panagsama Beach. Plenty of nearby restaurants, bars, and dive shops. Wish I could have stayed longer.
