Location is the perfect combination between rest, great views and beach and only 15 min away the lively village with restaurants, bars etc. Rooms are very nice, close to the pool, sea and restaurant, but with all privacy also. Our favorite lunch and reading spot was the terrace in the sea with almost always a nice breeze. The diving school... More

Stayed here during a long weekend holiday earlier this year. The resort is quite nice, pool is okay and in the middle of the resort. There is no beach at the resort, so you would need to walk a bit to get to the public beach which is not very nice and too crowded most of the time. I don't... More

A little bit expensive, well if there is something everyone knows before booking us, it’s the rates. On the net there is plenty of choice on Moalboal accommodations down to approx. 800 php per night. Why some people book us if it’s at the limit of their budget, especially those who do not appreciate the particularities of Dolphin-House? It is... More

me and my friends stayed here for a few nights, it's a 4* resort for chilling but I didn't love the decor in the rooms, the view was lovely from the bar and restaurant area, you couldn't fault the breakfast choice, I was disappointed in the menu for dinner! Your far out from the town so you pretty much stay... More

Thank you for your comment Shelzabella31 and happy you liked the place. I feel sorry you misunderstood the dinner concept. There are plenty of little restaurants within 15 min by tricycle or taxi where you will find 100 or more dishes on the dinner menu. They are all rather cheap and bad compared to us but some are quite ok... More

Just spent four nights here and really enjoyed ourselves. The grounds and rooms are beautiful. The staff is quite attentive and the food was very good. I love the quiet atmosphere that is, in part, the result of cars not inside the resort area (parking is just outside) and that conservation and recycling are encouraged here. The reef is right...

Thank you Kathryn for your nice review! We have actually already worked on the Aircon Issue. We separated the compressors from the walls of the bungalows and renewed those that began to age and become a bit noisy. Sorry for that but sure that's ok now. Hope to have you with us again one day! We always have a little... More

We had a lovely time at Easter. The dive centre was fantastic, the training was excellent. I had my daughter doing open water cerification and I redid it with her, so I know it was top training and care. The rooms were large and air con all good. Food is a bit pricey we felt, but you can easily go... More

Thank you very much for your nice review. I am not sure if the food is a bit price, certainly not in terms of value for money. Please do also consider that US and especially EURO lost 30% and more of its value within the last couple of years compared to Philippine Peso and most Asian currencies. But as you... More

Whent there for lunch after reading all the nice reviews. The place is amazing, beautiful setting - must be a nice place to stay. We had a vegatable lasagna - wonderful.

Well…. as a restaurant even within a 5 star resort we don’t know what a guest ate before coming to Dolphin House, we don’t know what kind of foods they “secretly” brought in as a “day guest” but we know that none of our guest got sick that day eating the same dish. Going true the reviews on this same... More

We stayed in this resort for 6 nights, and It was lovely. Amazing for snorkelling and lots to see. It is also great as there is a walk way built into the reef so you don't damage the corals. This is a very comfortable place to stay and relax. The only this for us which was not great was the... More
