We stayed 4 nights and despite the initial rainy weather, we enjoyed every second of it. The location is very good, diving run by locals - authentic fishing boats - nice atmosphere and professional. Food was perfect: healthy, tasty, just enough. Our room was simple with nice touches such as a yoga mat. Amazing corals, plenty of turtles and interesting...

We stayed here for 2 nights in transit to Kawasan Falls & Oslob as we heard Moalboal was a beautiful place, and indeed it is! The resort was exactly like the pictures on the website and on tripadvisor so we couldn't resist not to book. Despite the resort being quite secluded and far from the main town, the view from...

We were really surprised by the quality of the lodging, which was not to our expectation regarding the price paid. The accommodation are cabins in the local architecture style which is neat. The amenities inside are outdated; old fridge, bathroom very small and not renewed for 20 years, electrical cables stapled on the walls. There is no phone to call...

A small Resort. It was clean and tydi. The Staff was very friendly. The kitchen do her best, for enjoying our meal. I think more typical Philippines meals where better then European meals. The Divebase ist in good condition, the boats are small and not so comfotable for the divers they are typical for the Philippines.

Small hotel human size far from the maddening crowd. Kindness, availability, discretion of the staff. Wonderful diving sites for photographers. Nice coral reef in front of the hotel. Weather was cloudy windy hot and sea was rough but it never affected the dives in the morning.
