We stayed in a deluxe seaside bungalow. The decor was a bit outdated but the room was huge and it had a separate kitchen, bathroom and large terrace with direct access to the sea! The bed was also huge and really comfortable! The view from the room and terrace was the best we've had!!! Their breakfast is nothing special, although... More

I have never had the desire to write a review about any places that I have ever stayed in around the world. However Marcosas is an exception, the place is the best value for money resort I have ever been to. The place has all the creature comforts needed for the western traveler and includes the best breakfast I had... More

We stayed at Marcosas for one week, it almost felt like home. Location: perfect. Very near to all the restaurants and dive shops, but far away enough to not be bothered by the loud music of bars. And the pool is a nice refresher if you come back from snorkeling or diving. Food: breakfast is included and very very good.... More

Stayed at marcosas cottages for 5 nights in January whilst enjoying the scuba diving in moalboal. It was a pleasant stay with a big bed, aircon, cable and breakfast. The only criticism and biggest let down for me was the lack of water pressure in the shower which made taking a shower not to be relaxing or enjoyable.

We had one night booked here, and extended to two. For memory through Agoda it was about $85 AUD/night and good value for money. There’s no wifi in the rooms, just in the reception and café area. There’s a money changer facility in the lobby, but you can pay by credit card too. The rooms themselves are very generously sized... More

We booked 2 superior cottages. The room was very spacious for 4 people. It was clean and the temperature of the aircon was good and controllable. The bathroom was really big and tidy. The only thing that I noticed is the shower head wherein I prefer a different one because the water isn't that strong but the good thing is... More

A great little mid-range resort, rooms are nice, bright and clean and there is a beautiful pool and grotto. Would suit families or couples. The breakfast was included and was quite nice. No complaints from us, staff super friendly, although their massages and motorcycle rental was a little on the expensive side.

This secluded place is just fab. Obviously it is owned bij a German. Everything is also translated to German and there were a few coming and going in the 4 days we stayed. Perfect service, lovely cottage we had number 24 all the way in the back. Perfect with just one neighbor. We did not have a double bed unfortunately... More
