For the size of the room, and type of facilities, their rates are very reasonable. This hotel's proximity to our dive shop of choice (seaquest) was our primary reason for staying here. Their rooms are clean and comfy though they are quite basic. Most of their staff are very friendly and accomodating except for Ms Edith Palomares with whom I... More

Here is nice and peaceful just off the beaches and not far from all the dive shops - the rooms are basic with no wifi but you can gain that in the food and pool area - I found this resort great value for money - it's about 4km from the town and you can get a lift for 100... More

Marcosas has a very friendly staff, it´s very clean (even if theres a lot of garbage all over Cebu!) and they have a nice pool and wifi. The food, on the other hand, is very boring, little taste, but the coffee is ok. Eat you dinner at Chili bar or the amazing resaturant on top of a diving shop across... More

Nice hotel with clean rooms and helpful staff, good pool also. Close to a few dive shops but the main restaurants, and many more dive shops, are about 10 minutes walk away. However this means the hotel is in a quiet area and there were no noise problems anytime.

We (family of four, with kids ages 9 and 7) stayed at the Marcosas for five days in December. We loved this area of Cebu and really enjoyed the hotel. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and the area around the beautiful pool was the centre of our activities for much of our time in Moalboal. There is... More

Well maintained cottages, although a little expensive for solo travelers. Ended up here by referral from the dive shop and I really liked the place. Good pool and decent breakfast, which is included. The cottages have everything you need, including hot water and a safe. The minibar has very reasonable prices. Place is quiet at night, which is a big... More

Stayed 8 nights and enjoyed all about the Marcosas. Clean and well appointed rooms, maintained resort grounds, friendly and professional staff and a good location. After looking at other accommodation close by, we were glad we chose Marcosas. The pool is a big advantage and the bar / restaurant area is pleasant. Everybody was very helpful and the food was...
