The Barefoot White Beach Resort was an ideal place for my wife and I to spend our 1st Anniversary together! The Honeymoon Suite is right on the beach and very relaxing and intimate and the prices are very reasonable and affordable.
I was very pleased that the weather cooperated and was pleasant and that Moalboal, in general, seems to be void of mosquitoes!?!
The Honeymoon Suite, itself, is wonderful. It features a grass-roofed dining cabana out front, a combination kitchen/living room area, a bedroom in the back complete with a romantic canopy bed, and both an indoor and outdoor shower.
The resort itself is a little unusual in that it is very narrow - not much wider than The Honeymoon Suite itself - and The Honeymoon Suite is the only room/suite/cottage with direct beach access. All other patrons of the resort access the beach using a little path that runs adjacent to The Honeymoon Suite.
Getting to the resort was a little confusing, since the resort doesn't have it's own direct driveway. So it was a slight adventure trying to find it at first. It is just south of the Club Serena Resort, which is a nice thing anyway, as The Barefoot Beach Resort does not feature a restaurant or bar, and the Club Serena Resort is a surprisingly short walk up the beach.
Before traveling there, we had read articles online stating that is was possible the woman running the place would cook fresh fish dinners for us, but I didn't know quite what to expect or how that would work out. We were delighted with Avon (I hope I am spelling it correctly) and the young man helping her (his name escapes me, but I certainly will never forget him or his polite and helpful demeanor). The dinnner meals Avon cooked were fabulous - fresh grilled fish, a variety of shrimp dishes and her chop suey was the best we have ever had! (And we were greatly entertained by a few feral cats that seemed very attracted to our grilled fish!?!)
Avon would come to our suite, take our order for our choice of meal items and would do all the shopping required (even picking up a few other requested items, such as staples or things to make lunch with the following day) and would only charge us for the cost of the items - no surcharge for service or cooking.
There are some spartan aspects to Barefoot Beach resort, but overall our stay there was very warm, friendly, and relaxing because of the care and attention by Avon and her helper.
I hope my wife and I can stay there again in the future, and preferably on a regular basis, if we figure out how to afford the airfare!?!
