Excellent service. Extremely kind staff. Willing to help guests in everything needed. The best. Could be improved the size of the bathroom (too small), and the diving centre. Too simple breefings with no info at all.

This was our 3rd stay at a Lotus Resort, having previously stayed at their Papua Paradise in Raja Ampat on 2 occasions. Our expectations were that Sampaguita would be similar in standard to Papua Paradise, but regrettably this was not the case. My room was small and particularly comfortable. The bed frame was very large such that the mattress was...

The resort is far away from the city, nothing around there - but they have a shuttle car. food is ok, just ok... Moalboal seems to be basically a divers paradise, don't search for a beach there...but it's great for snorkeling/diving...

This resort has an excellent room, food, service and view. We didn't dive so we couldn't really enjoy the sea, just the scene. Its' location is somewhat inside a gulf, and so you can't really hear the sound of waves sometimes, except when probably the wind is really strong. This is an excellent place to relax, but probably you would...
