At first we were unsure if its a good idea staying in Moalboal (the 3-4hours drive from Mactan Island was crazy!), but we want to be close to Oslob & Kawasan falls for the tours. Happy with the decision, we had an amazing 6day stay in Sampaguita!!
We were upgraded to a cottage as my partner is tall and our previous bed is short for him, we were happy about that, more comfortable and cozy.
This resort is all-inclusive so we were treated with good food, including snacks and tea/coffee, free shuttle to town, and Panagsama and white beach, plus the free laundry!!
And the best part- their inhouse reef!!! you can snorkel everyday, you don't have to go farther, too and a lot of seaturtles, it was amazing!!!! me and my partner aren't divers, and because this resort is a diving resort, we initially thought we wouldn't enjoy our stay, but we were so relaxed at the end of our trip, we spent days snorkeling and even tried the free dive at the resort (tried scuba diving for the first time), it was just great! my partner had few encounters with seaturtles, and he enjoyed it so much that he went for another dive the next day! the staff are so nice, we felt we stayed in a big house, nice to meet other friendly guests too. We will come back soon!!!! Hopefully by then they have renovated, this has a lot of potential to be 4-5stars resort! :)
