This was our 4th or 5th trip to Moalboal, which has really nice diving but not much else. We have not been there in years but like going there in June, as we did this year. Of course there are many changes, but what surprised us most was really the lack of changes or progress as well compared to other... More

I visited here with my daughter (16) and son (8). I was a bit nervous about bringing children, but it was brilliant. The hotel seemed to be aiming at a family / adventure / eco-tourist market, and most guests seemed to be there for snorkelling and diving. It isn't the best diving spot in the Philippines, but it is better... More

Tipolo Beach Resort is a wonderful guesthouse close to the main action of Panagsama. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with spacious verandas for an afternoon of relaxation. Excellent restaurant on site, and the adventure operator attached to the resort does some of the best adventure trips in Southeast Asia!

Sea-facing rooms are really seaview room. Seaview are all blocked by tall trees, which is quite disappointing. Anyway, you could have the full seaview at sunbeds corners. I saw the most attractive sunset there. It was amazing. Beside the window view, everything it offers are just prefect. Snorkeling right in front of the resort was a nice experience to me.... More

Lovely place to stay, clean and comfortable. Excellent location for snorkling just outside, and for going to sleep to the sound of the sea... And, very thoughtfully, there's free drinking water! The only negatives, no mozzie net provided (take your own if you're tasty!) and the bedside lamps are too dim to read by.

We stayed at Tipolo for 2 nights ['villa queen size bed']. . We were aware that the balcony would not be sea-facing but little did we expect it to be overlooking the lane right below. What's worse, the balcony was not private - the adjacent room also had access to it. If you tried to draw the flimsy curtains, the... More

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights at the Tipolo last month. Strongly recommend the adventure tours offered with Planet Action. We did the snorkelling and the river trekking, and both were just amazing. Snorkelling we saw a wall of sardines, a turtle, a lobster and a lion fish amongst so much else - more than anything else we saw... More

My son and I stayed at Tipolo for several days in January 2011, one of several stops on our Philippine adventure. The resort is very attractive with nice landscaping and very comfortable and well appointed rooms. What really stood out, however, was the friendliness and courtesy of the staff and the owners - we truly felt like family friends. The... More

Tipolo Beach Resort basically allows us to relax and to have fun, depending on your preference. Tipolo have the best people there. One fine example would be the boss. Rarely do you see at any other resort that the boss actually bothers to come out and have a beer/chat with you! Another would be the Adventure guides. They are REALLY... More
