Once you've got the 2.5 hour drive from Cebu behind you, through beautiful mountain and coastal areas, Moalboal's Pagasama beach area where this resort is located is as idyllic a place as you'll find. This part of the coast is very provincial, not sophisticated city style resorts, but well fitted spacious relaxing environments next to a coast line of white...

I must admit breakfast was good and the common areas are nice and well maintained, huge swimming pool and the gardens are beautiful. The room is basic, lacks ventilation, old and expensive for what you pay. I had payed the room online beforehand, otherwise i would have walked away. But what made me write a negative review is the staff...

I stayed in a double bed room with a friend I travelled with. Conditions are really basic, there was airconditioning, fan. We arrived way past 12am, and found the reception desk was closed. It closes at 7pm. We did not know this, until we arrived. We thought we would not be able to get in, so I went across to...

Tucked away in Moalboal right off the beach. Couldn't ask for a more serene location. Stayed at a seaside cottage and it was roomy. Breakfast was also good - had the mango pancakes (delicious!). No fancy frills here, but perfect if you're looking for a reliable, clean and comfortable place to stay. Also, literally right outside the resort are some...

A very good place to stop for a couple of days. Nice, clean cottages. Very well equipped. Nice terrace in front. Quiet. Nice garden. A short walk to the nearby village and diving clubs. Good breakfast. Nice swimming pool. As for the local condityions, well working WIFI. Pleasant and helpful staff. Worth recommending for a stay in Moalboal.

European style double bed (2 singles pushed together made up seperately) and big day bed. The Aircon worked very well which was good for sleeping that night as we had...

Stayed here for one night in November 2016. The cottages are very cute and spacious, with one of the biggest bathrooms we saw in Philippines. Had a nice poolside bar and dining area servung slightly overpriced but tasty food. They can arrange for activities, like whale shark watching in Oslob.

We are extremely well travelled and have recently returned from the Marcosas Cottages, where we stayed as a family for 21 days. When we first arrived the whole attitude of Edith was unwelcoming from the word go. She tried to tell us that we had only booked for two adults and a baby, but our travel voucher from Agoda clearly...

We were in the marcosas resorts this week. The room can use renovations, it looks old and dumpy. But the hotel itself is allright and the staff are nice. In addition, it is 2 min walk from the beach so it is fantastic.
