From start to finish, all the staff were absolutely amazing. They went above and beyond to help us with whatever issues we had. The house reef was one of the best I've seen. Some tips are to bring mosquito repellent (you'll get eaten alive here haha) and be careful under the cabana area that faces the ocean. Theres a lizard...

The staff is great. Probably the nicest staff ive experienced. Beautiful grounds but basic room without tv considering the price and competition. Very far from the rest of moalboal although some people might enjoy that. I talked to a local tricycle driver gave him my itenerary and that solved the isolation

The Blue Orchid has everything you need, fun and helpful staff and is in a beautiful quiet location. This resort is pretty secluded down a dirt road about 25-30 min ride to town, but it is quiet and lovely with good facilities. You are farther from town, but not at all stranded. The staff is super friendly and helps you...

The resort was tucked at the end of the white beach, required transport to travel in and out. This can be arranged by the helpful staff. We stayed for 3 nights, in the family suite. The room was clean but many mosquitoes, the netting was not very useful. We were doing snorkelling, discovery dive and refresher in the resort. The...

the place is good for divers. the rooms are quite pricey, but the room is big. the only good thing here is the food and the quite evenings. and for the pricey rooms and are dusty. if you want a white sand beach? you have to walk along the shoreline and walk for minutes and fine the public beach area.

Blue Orchid is the most relaxing, enjoyable, resort i’ve ever stayed in. Right off the bat we were greeted by the managers Bill and Lisa, who are friendly and gregarious and get to know all of their guests. Bill brought us to our room and I was stunned. High ceilings with an extremely comfortable giant bed, and floor to ceiling...

Upon arrival we were met with a drink and Steve discussed the many options for us to participate in while we were at the resort. No pressure, just making sure we knew that they would do whatever was necessary to make our stay enjoyable. The view from our room was fantastic overlooking the water and sunsets. Transportation was available to...

This is our first stop in Philippines. The pickup at Cebu airport went without a hitch and it was a three hour ride to Blue Orchid. Rene was great and you are made to feel welcome and at home. This is not a large resort and everything is very casual. We had the Romance package and it was worth the...

The hotel staff they are nice people but the hotel is way to far from the main road. About a 10-15 minute ride from the main road and the road to get there is full of rocks and potholes. This might have been okay if there were taxis waiting outside to take you but there is none . You have...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our beautiful, private, seaside resort accommodation is tucked away in a secluded corner of Mac Payong, just 30 meters from the 2km White Beach. Just a short drive away from Moalboal and Panagsama, it offers a quiet, idyllic setting for your holiday. The location couldn't get any better for diving as one of the best reefs in the area is directly in front of your ocean view room. The reef is perfect for beginner divers, and also for snorkelers. However the step walls make an exhilarating dive for seasoned advanced divers. The resort's architecture is a blend of Mediterranean and native styles incorporating local stone and thatched roof with white arches and Spanish tiles. Each room has either a large arched doorway or huge glass sliding doors to provide guests with amazing ocean views. Fall asleep after a hard day's dive to the sound of gentle waves and the wind gently blowing through the yucca trees. Office hours: 8am to 8pm Email to arrange airport pickup with a minimum of 24 hour notice. Check -ins are to be arranged in advance if past or before normal office hours. ... more   less
