It was in the middle of typhoon Dante when we went to Loboc. There were floods everywhere. But the owners of Fox & Firefly were so kind and accommodating that they even gave us a free cottage upgrade. They even gave us emergency lights and water just incase there will be power interruption. I would like to thank the owners for being so kind to us as well as the guards and the incharge at the resort. I will go back definitely.

Stayed here overnight for only Php2,100.00 for 4 pax. We get to choose which room we would stay, of course we chose the room located at the 2nd floor facing the rice paddies, which was cool and relaxing😊 Love: Bathroom is truely one with nature😊, Staffs were accomodating😊, Food and drinks is yummy, we get to bring also food that we bought from the outside stores, we felt safe staying at this resort despite such open areas😊 Though the room has really awesome view from the terrace, we felt it was a bit hot even with the 2 electricfan on, even without aircondition rooms there is a mosquito net which is cool. They lived up with the image of the resort wherein it is really indeed one with nature❤️ Overall we enjoyed our stay at Fox and firefly and how we wish we could stay longer🙂

We keep coming back to this small hotel along the Loboc River because of its super chill vibe, lovely view, and impressive vegan menu. The sisig and samosas are awesome! The staff’s service is great too. The only downside is the access road and lack of parking. The road is quite narrow and not in the best condition.

Where do I start with this wonderful place? From friendly, helpful owners and staff to an amazing location with the the banks of the Loboc river on one side and rice paddies on the other; This resort is so peaceful. With one of the best, healthiest menus I have seen in the Philippines, you will be spoiled with choices of what to eat. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. We stayed in one overlooking the rice paddies and what a sight to wake up to in the morning. We also availed of the activities on offer going on a lovely SUP tour in the evening and a very challenging mountain bike tour the following morning. We will certainly be returning to The Fox & the Firefly in the future. Oh, did I mention the food?

I stayed in one of the new rooms (recommended) at the back. The rooms are very nice, with eye for details. Good mattresses and pillows, nice outdoor terrace with very comfy hanging chair, nice outdoor shower with warm water. Lots of storage space. I had a great sleep. There is no aircon, but that did not matter as it was much cooler here than in Panglao. They have an amazing 200mbps internet. I also reviewed their restaurant (food and fables), which is very very good, separately. Their tours are very nice too. Supping is relaxing with beautiful views of the river. Mountain biking is horrible and the owner Frederic is a sadist for driving up the mountain and waiting for us walking and vomiting, while he was taking pics and video. ha ha. Once at the top views are amazing and downhill is like skiing which I liked a lot. I will be back.
