Rooms and staff were fantastic. Location amazing. Great snorkelling off the house reef. Great dives at arms' reach. Food was buffet style, but good. Plenty of it. We had an amazing time! Would recommend for divers!

Dear ‘obynrogers002’, sunny greetings to Singapore! Your comments make our hearts sing. The way you describe your experience at Sampaguita is exactly matching how it is meant. A beautiful place, where divers, snorkelers, sea and nature lovers find “their” holiday hide-out for nothing less than an amazing time. Thank you so very much for your stay and your comments.

Sampaguita hotel is beyond expectation. I am so please with everything they offer. The room is surprisingly huge for the price that we paid, the resto bar is well stock, the layout of the whole resort is traditional but impressive. The staff are super nice and friendly too. Diving was second to none.

You will love this small quiet resort with great amenities for diving and simply to relax. Perfectly located at the sea with nice views, garden and restaurant (nice food).

Moalboal is a place where you go basically only to dive. But Sampaguita resort, other than just a diving resort, sets you in a fantastic atmosphere, where you feel totally relaxed and in contact with nature. It's a bit more expensive than usual resorts in Cebu island, but it comes with full board so all in all is a good...

This is so because it did indeed take quite awhile to get to Sampaguita resort after flying into Cebu. It seemed we could drive no further and there it was, the beach, the sand, the beautiful blue ocean, the thatch hut bungalows. It's a very calming gentle environment to relax to and worth the 3+ hr drive to get there....

A very secluded, quiet resort with good food and friendly staff. It's very convenient for divers that they have their own diving centre inside the resort. It will be an excellent choice if you are looking for a quiet peaceful resort. Probably not suitable for party people.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sampaguita is for divers that insist on an overall delightful experience, above and below the surface. The small-scale OCEANFRONT dive resort of 16 traditionally styled bungalows, is nestled in a tropical oasis of calm and ease. Our lush garden is shadowed by gigantic palms, rustling in the marine breeze, lapped by crystal waters. You appreciate sea, nature, good cooking, diving and congenial company? This is your little heaven! Our "Gangga Divers" Diving Center is manned by Excellent and professional dives guides who, as native, know the diving sites as well as their own houses. Non divers are always welcome on the boats during diving excursions free of charge, space permitting. Great swimming and snorkeling also in front of the resort. Unlimited diving on the drop-off! according to the center rules and timings. ... more   less
