Stayed here overnight for our moalboal island hopping and badian canyoneering. Location is near the town center. Room is clean, toilet feels brandnew. Ate and kuya are super maalaga. Free coffee and self service luto of pancit canton(for sale), they have kitchen open for all. Free tricycle rides to where u want. And they will let u shower for free even u already checked out. Like our case, we checked out early morning, then came back around 3pm just to shower and freshen up on our way back to cebu city. One thing bad about this place is the weak water flow.

Had 3 nights at emoks with the family, really enjoyed it. Very welcoming from the second we arrived, nice clean big room with good air con. They helped with transport into the beach, arranging scooters and an awesome CANYONEERING trip to Kawasan.
Thanks Emok and your family :)

Arrived in the evening, one person sitting in the reseption didn't speak english, got the room, no introduction.

Spent 3 nights, no restaurant or bar at all. People say that the owners are very nice and its welcoming place. Well, we saw no owners and there was no one anywhere, but the lady who doesnt speak english..

Good thing was that coffee and water was free, and you can just take toiletpaper or towels from the selfes in the common area. The place was always dead quiet. Rooms are basic guesthouse level.

The place is abit far from everything, so you need to take a tricycle if you want to eat anything else but mcdonalds.

Hi villem199. Thank you for the review at your recent stay at the guesthouse. We apologize for the inconvenience that you experienced with us. At the time of your stay, our cook and bartender were out of town for their short vacation. The staff that was left can't speak English well and timid. While we wish, you had a better experience, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it’s apparent in this case, we fell short. If you give us a chance to earn back your trust, we are happy to make your reservation personally and see to it that you enjoy the experience that so many of our guests have grown so fond of. Cheers!!!!

Arrived to Emoks guest house with a great big friendly smile . The owner was bubbly and extremely friendly . After a very long commute traveling I felt just at home here at Emoks. The room and private suite were of a clean standard . Beds however are uncomfortable as it feels like you are sleeping on a board of wood . Complementary clean sheets towel and locker was a bonus . Emoks Bar is filled with a personal touch when the owner makes all the drinks for you himself . Upon checking out free ride to the bus stop was offered . Great place to stay if you are looking for a warm and welcoming atmosphere , not a party place , great if you just want to chill out on the hammocks in the peaceful garden and enjoy your own personal space . Highly recommend .

We absolutely loved this place!
If your a travelling and are looking for cheap accomodation with character then this is the place!
It's a family run business who all live on the property and they are all so friendly. Little bit out of town but close enough to all busses and food, still walking distance or they have tricycles. the owner has a car and offers to drive you around locally which we thought was fantastic.
We stayed in a room that slept 6 people but asked if was possible to have the room private which they did for no extra charge. They have a cute seating area outside the room with little fish ponds that also has a baby turtle, so cute!
The bathroom is your typical backpacker style, bucket of water to flush and low water pressure but if your travelling cheap then your probably used to it. Didn't bother us at all.
Can't recommend this place enough 😊
Do yourself a favour and stop in here, only 10 min bus ride to Kawasan falls.

It was my first time to travel Cebu. I did not plan for any itineraries because I usually like to travel spontaneously. The staff recommended the best place to go snorkeling. I did the canyoneering and it was one of the highlights of my travel. Thank you Emok's.
