This was a great holiday for us. We went for the diving and really enjoyed ourselves. The house reef is pretty good, some interesting macro, we saw a variety of nudibranch, porcelain crabs, leaf fish, turtles etc, and the sardine balls along Pagsama beach. The resort is close to white beach, (just a few minutes walk). Location wise it is... More

During our week diving in Moalboal we stayed with Matt and Shanon in the Blue Orchid Resort. We had a great time! The resort is an oasis of rest. All the rooms are situated with a magnificent view, they are very clean and comfortable. From 8 am till 8 pm, you have the possibility to order breakfast / lunch /... More

This was an amazing place to stay. It was clean, tidy and well maintained with a good food selection for adults and kids. The staff and other guests were really friendly and we really enjoyed getting to know them in the communal diving area. We went snorkelling and saw turtles, sardines, the coral reef, puffer fish, starfish and lots of... More

Wow, this gem of a resort absolutely exceeded expectations. If you’re looking for a tranquil paradise off the beaten track then look no further. I would recommend this place to any type of traveler even non divers like myself. On arrival we were greeted by the lovely Shannon, Matt and Esmeralda (there resident hornbill) who were extremely helpful and friendly.... More

I would recommend this to anyone (even if they are not divers) who would like to experience peace and tranquility in Cebu. A breathe of heaven on earth. The location is superb, as well as the staff, facilities and service. What the resort offers is 5 star at 3 star prices. Shannon and Matthew can be proud of what they... More

We stayed here with our 7 year old daughter in October, and we loved it. Matt and Shannon were very helpful and accommodating from the time we arrived until the time we left - organising private transfers, day trips. The staff were very polite and friendly, and produced some amazing food. Being able to walk out to the house reef... More

We visited this resort because of the snorkeling in the house reef and because it was quiet and private. We loved it. If you like lots of activities and noise then this isn't the place for you. However if you enjoy snorkeling and seeing fish and starfish and coral and you enjoy a quiet relaxing place with good food, drinks,... More

Stayed here to me near my wife's reunion in Malabuyoc, a town 45 minutes south of here. I thought I would miss all the fun but was thoroughly entertained talking to the guests, staff,managers and using the pool. Shannon, Matt and staff are the greatest, give them a try.

As a non diver I am often wary of dive centre/ resort places as many of them are set up for divers and not much else. This is most certainly not the case with blue orchid. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome starting with being greeted and given a quick tour of the resort... More

Paradise it is! Shannon and I are so lucky to be the managers here, able to meet amazing people from all over the world. The owner has worked hard to keep the resort nestled amongst the natural bush scenery right by the sea. Staying here can be as tranquil or as busy as you like with many activities on offer... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and 4 days for a wonderful Moalboal adventure. We have been welcomed by Shannon and Matt and took us for a brief tour around the resort. The staff are all friendly and does the service much personalized which is a plus. The place is located at the farthermost part of the white beach which... More

Thank you so much for staying with us here at Blue Orchid Resort, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! Having bedbugs in any resort is, of course, a big concern and we do have regular inspections for them here at Blue Orchid. After reading your review we made sure to schedule another additional inspection straight away, which... More
