Unfortunately we only stayed there for one night as I would have really enjoyed experiencing more of the things they offer. The snorkeling was fantastic - very few (no other) people and a very interesting and diverse reef with many fish and types of coral. The dinner was excellent and there is a good selection of wine. Breakfast was well... More

Driving off nowhere of Moalboal, haven't decided yet where to go, no idea where to stay...on the internet there's a lot of places but so expensive and the service is pretty bad... Fortunately we found this paradise.. 3 things I love the most about the place; the friendliness of the Cebuanas and the Cebuanos trying their best to serve you... More

Quality of room, service, world class cuisine, all exceeded my expectations of a small boutique resort in the middle of no where in a little village in Cebu island! Dive center was fabulous with amazing dive guides and instructors. They made a world of difference for this dive trip!! I am definitely going back as 4 nights were not enough!

The sunsets serve as a blazing backdrop for the beautiful resort. Don't miss the sunset cruise and sing along. Get a wonderful massage. Every meal is spectacular. Even the family owners are friendly and attentive. The dive staff was also exceptional. We loved our time at Dolphin House.

We had our wedding at Dolphin House and they absolutely went above and beyond to provide a warm, fun and comfortable stay for us and all our guests. They are primarily a dive resort, but they made an exception for us by agreeing to take carriage of all the arrangements for our intimate wedding ceremony. We have had nothing but... More

If you are reading reviews I assume you are curious about the 5 star claim this property receives on the booking sites. This is not a terrible place to stay...but if you are under the impression this is a top-end resort you might want to keep looking. Here is my review... -Staff/Service - 5 star -Restaurant - 4 star (wildly... More

Rudy P, General Manager at Dolphin House, responded to this review

Please keep a fair attitude! It is somewhat a pain in the neck to see how some guest would try to obtain additional discounts by hinting that they “would be very pleased to write a good review.” The person and his fellow who wrote this review benefited from our “Off-Season Special” Summer rates – less 20%. On top of that... More
