Absolutely loved it. Had eaten here on our last visit to Moalboal and came back to stay for two nights this time. The food was delicious as always - super fresh herbs and vegetables from the garden, with all sorts of international meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. The bungalows are super charming with a swing and cushions on each front porch, and a very tropical outdoor bathroom. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Kiko and to the staff

Me and my boyfriend traveling for 3 mounth, and for this far this was our favourite place.
The owner of the place Kiko and Sabine so kind and lovely, and especially kath- one of the workers there. Helped in anything!
We loved the location of the place, neer an amazing snorkling reef where you can see sea turtles and we did it really everyday it was beautiful!
Also a really good and cheap resturant 3 min walking away from there.
We stayed in the bungalow which was nice and clean.
Really good place, hope to come back!

Not sure where to start... from the second we walked through the door we were made to feel at home, kiko and Sabine are two of the nicest people I’ve ever met! they have an amazing oasis garden surrounded by bedrooms, hammocks, bean bags, music and a fridge full of beer! the best atmosphere you could want at a guesthouse, they offer motorbike rental and all the help you could ever need about things to do in the area. you can snorkel with turtles a few minute down the road!! Marc and Helen who are working here for the next few weeks are also amazing people, very helpful and made our stay here unforgettable, we were extremely sad to leave this amazing place and can highly recommend to anyone who really wants to enjoy their stay in Moalboal.

Kiko and Sabina made you feel like home in there guesthouse. Cooking up delicious meals around there homely table and just chilling in the hammocks spending hours sharing stories and talking. One of my favorite stays so far in the Philippines. Although me and my girlfriend are not divers, many came through here and loved diving with Kiko. Over and all we loved this stay and would happily return! Thankyou for everything guys we will miss you!!

This place had the most accommodating staff ever!!!! They helped us with everything! The little bungalows where super cute and homey and the bathroom was so unique we loved it!
On one of the days our fan broke and they brought us a new one straight away to make sure we had some sort of aircon which was extremely helpful. On the last day there was a power cut of some sort which was completely out of there control but we had our flights that evening and needed to shower so the owner ( I think) and the wonderful reception brought us huge buckets of water that I have no idea how they carried to us as they where extremely heavy but they didn’t everything they could to help us before we leave which was so helpful and we appreciated it so much as it was a life saver! They even offered us complimentary drinks as an apology for the situation! They where all so amazing especially the two girls (who I didn’t ask for names unfortunately) but the girl in reception and the girl at breakfast they where amazing!!! We also got a tour with one of the girls husband who took us to see the turtles and sardines and he made the the experience amazing so I would highly recommend asking for that!
I would highly recommend

Sadly we haven't actually had the chance to stay at Herbs Guest House due to the travel ban imposed by the Philippine government in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
What I can say though is that the staff was really flexible and incredibly understanding of our situation in a climate where businesses are the first ones to suffer and travellers are often left out of pocket and this was greatly appreciated.
The reviews I read from guest were impeccable and we will be looking forward to book our stay at Herbs Guest house as soon as we can reschedule our trip!

Stayed at Herbs for 2 nights. Would had loved to stay there additional ones if it wasn’t for that we were about to leave for another city. Friendliest place you’ll find in Moalboal and the owner Kiko is amazing. Kudos to everyone working there for an amazing trip. Big rooms with good fans. Private bathrooms and great place in between the rooms (in the garden) to socialize with other guests.

Loves from Sweden, Kevin and Louise!

The owners and staff are very nice, as are their lovely dogs, and the communal area is comfortable with lots of hammocks and places to sit. There is a fridge stocked with drinks which is self service and useful, and 10P for 1 litre water refills was very good.

However there are few downsides. Wifi was practically nonexistent (worse than anywhere we've been in our 5 weeks in the Philippines which is saying something). It is also quite far from the main area of restaurants etc but we werent too bothered by this (JG grill is very good nearby). What really made this a 3 was the rooms however - it was very small with very little floor space and you were able to hear everything outside (including the couple next door). The outdoor bathrooms also attracted a lot of insects. The free breakfast also only includes toast, you have to pay for any cereals or a banana.

Overall, despite these drawbacks for us, we had a fairly pleasant stay.

Response from Anne A, Owner at Herbs Guest House
Responded Feb 13, 2019
Hello Kaladin, thank you for your review. You booked a nippahut bungalow for a backpacker price, as you can see before your booking with booking.com. Nippahut is made of bamboo and is the traditional building material in Asia. Of course this bungalows are not noise insulated. we are sure that other more expensive hotels offer insulated rooms and as well a complete breakfast buffett! The wifi has its ups and downs like everywhere in the countryside in the Philippines. Experienced backpackers can handle that, especially when they travel of the track, some islands like Palawan don't have even wifi. Right now only cites have wifi lines all others around are depending on pocket wifi and towers. And their signals are depending on the weather as well, which is in a tropical country quiete stormy sometimes and unpredictable. Best regards, herbs guesthouse

We came to stay in Moalboal for a few days and couldn't have ended up in a better place. The guesthouse is a little oasis (just a few minutes from town and Panagsama beach area) with a relaxed vibe, hammocks, clean and comfortable rooms. The hosts are the best - full of information and anecdotes about their time travelling and living in different parts of the Philippines. They go out of their way to make sure you have the best experience possible - everything from little maps, coordinating waterfall trips and motorbike rentals. We ate dinner at the guest house a number of times - the food cooked by our hosts was delicious, local cuisine and always filling! We also went diving (also coordinated by our hosts!) off the local shores and it was great - lots of healthy coral, turtles and sardines. We highly recommend Herbs Guest House!

I was truly sad to leave...!! I even extended my stay here because I felt so at home and welcome with Kiko and Sabina <3 the house is beautiful, the diving is amazing, kawasan falls a must to do!
The hosts;
Kiko and Sabina are an amazing couple with so many cool stories and experiences to share! For sure some of the best people I've ever stayed with! Kiko is an amazing chef and dive guide, with a good sense of humor ;) Sabina is a very loving and hospitable person and is a certified dive instructor, this couple definitely know how to enjoy life and do it the right way <3
I experienced one of my favorite dives with these two, seeing Mandarin fish (!!!), 4 turtles and enjoying a beautiful wall of corals for over one hour! Kiko is very good at spotting the little things in the water so especially if you have a camera don't miss out going on a dive with him!
Herbie, Stoner and Putput! Lovely dogs with a lot of heart who fit the picture perfectly!
The house;
Is wonderful! I honestly expected much less for the price and was very positively surprised when I saw the place, pictures don't do justice to this beautiful garden and relaxed oasis area! The rooms are clean and well set up, everything works and is fresh :) the prices for food and what not are more than reasonable, I could tell there's not much profit there, just looking after the guests :) top quality! It's not a standard in most places so these guys have really stepped it up.
I could go on about my perfect stay here (8 days!) But I think you should see for yourself, and definitely won't be disappointed!
THANK YOU KIKO AND SABINA FOR EVERYTHING, I WILL MISS YOU A LOT <3
