We had been staying at pangsama beach for a week and as the Saturday was my birthday my partner decided to treat us to a night at the Blue Orchid and booked the honeymoon suite. As well as being a nice way to spend my birthday it also got us away from the noise of the weekly Saturday night disco... More

The best snorkeling was right outside our door! Other boats would bring divers/snorkelers to that spot. Michael left no stone unturned when he tricked out this resort. Great room, great view! Stunningly beautiful surroundings were accented by the beautiful buildings he placed within the tree canopy, using native Nipa huts. Scuba/Snorkel Managers, Shannon and Matt handled any request with great... More

Our visit started after being welcomed by the manager Matt and his girlfriend Shannon. They make you feel at home right away with their laid back, relaxed attitude. Matt showed us to our giant ocean front room (all rooms are ocean front). The rooms are massive and clean, with very comfortable king size beds. The bathrooms are spacious, cozy, and... More

Me and my husband was just here for holy week, We wanted to get away from busy Manila and relax. Although there is not much of a beach at the hotel you could just go for a walk and there would be one not so far away. As said we were here to relax not to dive so we had... More

This is a very frindly place with beautiful surroundlings. A little off from Pangsama beach, but you can get there easily and cheaply by tricycle (a bumpy trip at the moment, but the roads are being renovated). The hotal has a wonderful house reef just outside - great for snorkelling, and even diving. And just a short walk to White... More

I enjoyed this place a lot. Good rooms,good food, great views, nice pool,attentive and cheerful staff, a place for a hideaway rather than nightlife and activities. The diving was so -so... The sardines were interesting and there was one magnificent wall of soft corals, and the cathedral dive at Pescador was geographically spectacular but the area is still trading on... More

First a warning - there is not much to do except for diving and relaxing. If you are okay with that you probably can't find a better place in the area to do that. When we arrived we were welcomed by the manager. And when we left at 6 am in the morning both managers and the owner were up... More

We went there shortly before Chinese New Year holiday, and were pleased to find that even at full capacity (expats taking advantage of the long holiday) this resort is great with friendly and helpful staff (Matt, Shannon, and the ladies in the kitchen too) taking good care of everyone. With around 10 rooms in total, it's great fun getting to... More

This was my 1st dive experience and thus wanted to be extremely cautious. However, with Matt & Shannon, the Managers of the resort, it all became fun and easy. A word about the resort: Beautiful property right up the beach. Food: Awesome, even for a strict vegetarian like me. Staff: Its a home away from home. In all a very... More

We stayed here four nights. It was a 3.5 hour drive from the airport. Only 90 kms but the traffic is always a challenge. It is the end resort on the white sand beach in Moalboal. The house reef is pristine and worth a good snorkel. Matt and Shannon helped us with our dives. We were not that experienced but... More
