As others have said, the resort is faded and is in desperate need of refurb....
That takes money but is the easy side of running a resort...
What is hard is good customer service, but the staff here make it look effortless. They are fantastic.
We were looked after. Breakfast was fabulous.
The pool is good for kids, the beach is not great but once you get over the stones/pebbles it is very pleasant. Working beach next door with local families and fishing folk.
We came away relaxed and felt we had been staying with distant relatives who were hell bent on looking after us.
Not for the smart set. Not for people who fuss about their environment.
Excellent for a relaxing family break.

We checked in very late in the evening as we had to travel from the city by bus to the resort. There was no light outside the resort (except for the streetlights) which caused our bus driver to miss the resort by a few meters. The caretaker was waiting for us at the gate and welcomed us into the resort. We booked the beach house (Hannah House) which had two rooms -- each room had a queen sized bed and a double deck so it should comfortably fit just 4 and not 5 as advertised. There are two bathrooms but they are only separated by a wall (with a space on top) such that the person in the other bathroom can hear you when you do your business. The beds are clean but the pillows are not very soft and comfy to use. They provide towels, a small bar of soap and a sachet of shampoo which you will be using for the entire duration of your stay -- no changing of towels and no cleaning of rooms while you are there.
Utensils are provided in the kitchen but the forks and spoons are not good for 10 so we ended up using the plastic ones we brought for the trip. You can coordinate with the caretaker if you want to order food in advance (specially if you are in a big group). They have a pretty decent selection of western and local dishes but if you want something else, you can ask them to cook specific dishes for you like we did. They bought the ingredients fresh from the market and grilled seafood for us and ended up saving more than ordering from the menu. We ordered lunch packs for our island hopping activity and when we got to the island, we found out that some of the orders are missing while the other food packs are totally different from the ones that we ordered. They admitted that it was an honest mistake and did not charge us for the orders that we did not receive (although they did charge us for the wrong food that they provided).
They were also very accommodating and assisted us in booking a multicab for our activities (whaleshark encounter/Tumalog Falls).

Beach house is indeed beach front but it's not the same as in other beaches, you have to carefully go down the ramp to get to the water (waves are too high anyway so it's probably not advisable to swim there). If you intend to swim, it is much safer to swim in the pool.

Did not find any other resort/inn for a big group that has more than one bathroom so this is probably the best choice for big groups but if you don't mind sharing one bathroom with several other people or breaking into small groups, I would suggest trying a place near the whaleshark briefing area -- it is more convenient (surely, you chose Oslob because of the whaleshark anyway) and there are more food choices in the area.

FYI, I wasn't expecting that much from the resort but I am posting this so that other travelers can set their expectations accordingly.

My family and I stayed at Lagunde Beach Resort last weekend. There were about a dozen of us, and we rented the beach house, which has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious living and dining area, and a kitchen, good for 10-12 persons. While there may be other cheaper options in Oslob, Lagunde was perfect for our needs. We could cook and heat our food in the kitchen (no corkage fees), and while some of us went whale shark watching, the rest stayed at the resort and enjoyed swimming and playing at the beach and in the pool. Hannah was very accommodating and Ate Mol was very helpful. Thoroughly recommended. (A more detailed review can be found here - http://wp.me/p4cI1u-Bt)

Poor monkey and poor bird on very short ropes, acting depressed and aggressive! The Monkey was just sitting there and holding his hands infront of his eyes, the massive bird was just trying to get rid of the 1m rope! How can people do that? Awefull!!

This hotel has potential (location: 3 rooms with direct sea view, garden, swimming pool with nice bar) but is a faded glory. We didn’t dare to go on the teeter at the swimming pool because it might break off. Friendly staff, but the room was not clean. Please dust clean under the beds! There was a giant spider in bathroom living behind the mirror. The monkey on a chain in de garden was pathetic to see. Same for the beautiful bird on a chord. Weird smell in the outdoor restaurant. We never saw customers. It is fairly remote.

Update this accommodation (not only the extra rooms construction workers were working on) and clean properly. Customers and better reviews will follow.

We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute. The staff were absolutely fantastic and so helpful . They arranged transport and were very welcoming.

The location is also great, only about a ten minute drive from stunning waterfalls and the whale sharks.

The rooms were very clean and the surroundings were great, very homey. The pool was clean and in great condition. The rooms had AC , a tv and a fridge. The WiFi connection was also very fast. We ate in the restaurant the first night and there was a great selection on the menu , the food was delicious.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. Cannot praise the staff enough. Thank you!!

We went there as walk-in guests and luckily, they had everything we needed: an airconditioned room for two with CR, a clean swimming pool, a restaurant, a bar and the beach! Plus, they have a trampoline (which my boyfriend enjoyed) and animals (birds and a monkey) you can talk to 😂 Everyone was ver accomodating and nice. The resort’s design isn’t modern. It kinda looks like a resort based in North Korea or something. It’s near the town too where you can find other restaurants and local eateries, 711 and money remittance centers. Rate is 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼 very reasonable, food is great (free breakfast) and they have a kareoke youncan rent. All praises (except for the design and color choices) 😂

First of all, the staff was very helpful and kind. The Hotel itself appears to be not as clean as others. Its nothing which bothers me, but worth mentioning.

The atmosphere is very relaxed and calm. Good destination to start whale watching in Oslob.

The place was great! The rooms were clean. The staff are accomodating. The view from the balcony is amazing. I will definitely visit again! They offer van service for guests staying at their resort. The Oslob town is around ten minutes away.
