We stayed for two nights in the Royal Athletes Room. Thought that was a weird theme but it's a comfortable room anyway. It's right by the reception and kitchen and dining area, so it could get noisy if there are rowdy guests there. It's a good-sized room that comes with a futon, dumbbells, a waist spinning disc, and rubber mats if you want to sneak in a workout during your stay. The queen sized bed is cozy, but the pillows and sheets are worn and thin. It didn't really bother us, though, as they were clean. The aircon works fine. The bathroom is large and the hot shower works properly, too. It doesn't have a refrigerator, though, unlike their resort view rooms, which are cheaper. Their wi-fi connection is really strong across the property, and my friends and I got to do work while we were there.
Our booking included a simple breakfast, which was a good serving of two pieces of toast, two pieces of bacon, an egg, and butter and jam. You have the option to upgrade to other Filipino breakfast meals for a fee. Their meals are relatively expensive, understandably since it's a resort, but the servings are generous and they were pretty good, too. They also offer budget meals, both adobo, for those who want to spend less. They don't provide house water but you can buy a liter of bottled water. They have beer, too.
The property is lovely. It's very private and quiet, unlike in White Beach. For the price, it's a steal. Lots of spots to lounge at comfortably, with great views of the sea. They don't have much
of a shoreline, but they have beautiful rock formations and it's so nice to swim when it's high tide. There's a little hut halfway down the beach and we spent our nights drinking there.
Their service is commendable. I've been exchanging text messages with them before we arrived and they answered all my questions promptly. They can contact a tricycle driver for you for pick-up or when you want to go to Moalboal town proper. They also know an able boat crew who can take you snorkeling in Pescador Island and Panagsama Beach for a cheap rate. The boatmen were very good so better leave them a small tip, too. The owners have a nice dog
who's very quiet and harmless. Their staff are very attentive and all smiles. They also take the time to chat with guests. The wife of Stefano even offered us some jackfruit, which they picked from their own tree. We had a really great time at Sea Turtle House. I would recommend it to families and group of friends who want a quiet and private place to enjoy the sea and make the most of their trip in Cebu.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Sea Turtle House Beach Resort is a resort for nature lovers and its rooms are located around 9 meters over sea level and is therefore very safe from tsunamis. It has stairs and handrail for to go down to the sea. It has a self made sand beach with beach volley ball, badminton and other games for our in house guest's free use. It has a great view to the clear blue sea. The difference between high and low tide here can vary vertically more than 3 meters depending on the position of the moon. The sea here has some very unique little animals because it has been reported that it was closed on its sides naturally many, many years ago. That's why some scientists are planning to study the phenomenon under sea level. From our sea shore of limestone with corals and sandy areas you can often observe sea turtles, especially when they swim up for air. The resort offers fresh air and tranquility for a great night sleep. Experience snorkeling, scuba diving or free diving. Just a short walk away you find also the well known White Beach. The resort has a size of around 5000 square meters (one of the largest resorts here) - that offers a lot of space, garden and possibilities for just 7 guestrooms and the resort practically has no neighbors - and most rooms have even built in noise reducers. These are great advantages in a lively country like that. The manager/co-owner of the resort loves the place so much he would never want to stay anywhere else. ... more less
