Marcosas Cottages Resort
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Moalboal
Reviewed December 7, 2016

It is not a resort by the sea side, but across the road from the sea, and just opposite the dive centre that we patronise, very convenient. Mattress tend to be a bit thin, but ok. Quiet sleep. Wifi only at the lobby/cafeteria. Breakfasts start at 7am, so we normally go there before 7am to make order, otherwise we might miss our first boat dive at 830am. You can choose breakfasts from about 8 choices. Mango shakes + ice cream at the cafeteria was good to refresh after dives. Guests can enter/exit through back gate during day light hours, and there is a minimart near the back gate.

The hotel is very clean and the nice was very nice and friendly. Good location by the beach and the touristy street by the beach. Rooms are very clean, beds lack of comfort a bit but are large, rooms with fridge and air con and large bathroom.
The pool area is very nice. The food is good as well.

Stayed 3 nights at this resort in one of their seaside cottages. The room was excellent - very roomy and comfortable. Great aircon and the kitchen made it convenient.

The resort has a really nice pool and the restaurant food was also good. No wifi in rooms but not sure they can do much about that. They rent motorcycles at reasonable rates. Resort has a good location on the quiet side of Panagsama but easily walkable to everything.

This hotel gives two different moalboal experience. If you like a green environment, pick the garden room near the pool area. They also have a suite nearby which gives you direct access to the sea.

Pros
+Amazing place. Like what others mentioned, staying in one of the garden rooms would give you a relaxing stay. I checked the sea view suite but liked the garden better.
+The free plated breakfast comes in a generous serving. Their banana pancake is delish!


Cons
-Food is expensive but tasty. It seems the menu here are consists of Filipino fusion dishes and american/german breakfast. Not to my liking unfortunately (i.e. ordered pork adobo and ginisang munggo for dinner and both didn't taste like a Filipino would have grown eating). We ended up eating less than half of what we ordered for dinner.
-It's far from the white beach. The tricycle ride would cost you as much as the bus ride to moalboal each way. That's P300 roundtrip for a short ride to a so so beach.
-Bring water. They don't serve service water even if you eat at their restaurant. You don't want to buy bottled water from them all the time as it's x2 to x3 of the real price.

We stayed at Marcosas cottages for three nights. I really enjoyed it. The rooms were clean, well air conditioned, and private. We had our own little porch with a garden area that was very nice. The staff were completely lovely and helpful. The pool was very clean and quite warm. The on site restaurant was also pretty much the best food in the area. We came back twice after we switched resorts. The cashew chicken curry yummmm. It's on the pricier side, but I found that to be very reasonable.
