I stayed 3 nights in May. I went to diving and kawasan falls. All hotel staffs are very kindly and helpful, smiling every time. I enjoyed good vacation. Inside hotel area is very quietly and silently. I had good relux time. Next time, I hope to come here.

Hotel room: We ordered a king room which had sea views from the porch, not direct views but views nonetheless. The room was large, huge king sized bed, TV, old school victorian style furniture. The only problem I had with the room was the aircon wasnt sufficient to cool the room to make it cool to sleep. I was hot... More

We stayed in the sea view room. The room was clean and the breakfast good. Staff was friendly. Poor wifi. Be prepared for a 5-10 minute drive into the resort from the main road by car or tricycycle. We went snorkeling right out of the back door and it was amazing. Also took a trike to kawasan falls, about 30... More

We travelled here from Sydney, Australia for a week with the family to learn to scuba dive. The group included my 11 year old son and 14 year old daughter, 2 beginner adults, 3 experienced divers who have been here before, and my 70 year old mother who doesn't snorkel. We had an amazing week. The dive staff were superb... More

Wow what a beautiful resort. This is the most beautiful resort I have stayed in during my stay in the Filipenes. Spacious rooms, great staff, beautiful pool. It is a absolute must to go snorkling in the bay the resort is located at. Especially around 8 am or 4 pm when the turtles come to check out the reef. Would... More

The staff and dive masters were a 10/10! Very nice experience and the dive sites are exactly what we were looking for. Really loved the pool as well. The food was not that great. Over the 4 days we tried almost everything on the menu. Breakfast was good enough which is important.

We had a lovely oceanfront room (there are only a few). The main room was air conditioned, and there was another room that had been a kitchen at one time, plus a bathroom, both very hot but providing a lot of extra space. This area seemed hotter and drier than other areas in the Visayas. There were outdoor drying racks... More

I had a great time during my stay but much better if Wifi would be available inside the rooms. Very accommodating receptionist and other staff of the resort.The only problem I experienced is the water interruption during my stay. Overall, Very nice place and staff.

When we turned onto a dirt road I thought it was over- I've never stayed in a resort that was this far off the main road. The hotel grounds are wonderful- very relaxing and comfortable feeling, small enough to get from reception to ocean in a couple of minutes, but spaced out enough that it never felt crowded. Our villa... More

If you came to Moalboal to dive, this place is it. Amazing coral reef right in the hotel's pier. The reef is so amazing, IMO, you don't even need to scuba. Grab your snorkel and fins and you'll be in for a treat. The name is legit, and I saw turtles several times snorkeling there, no more than 200m from... More
