My wife and I stayed for just one night at the Blue Orchid resort, as we wanted to see more of Cebu island before heading on to Bohol. The resort helped us arrange a transfer from our hotel in Cebu, and although it was a lot pricier than the bus, it's a long journey and it was nice to be... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. The resort is tucked away in a quiet corner at Moalboal. (Please carry some change since there are a couple of entry charges you need to pay on the road from Moalboal city into the resort area). Once you reach the place its nice. The rooms are large and spacious and very well maintained. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our beautiful, private, seaside resort accommodation is tucked away in a secluded corner of Mac Payong, just 30 meters from the 2km White Beach. Just a short drive away from Moalboal and Panagsama, it offers a quiet, idyllic setting for your holiday. The location couldn't get any better for diving as one of the best reefs in the area is directly in front of your ocean view room. The reef is perfect for beginner divers, and also for snorkelers. However the step walls make an exhilarating dive for seasoned advanced divers. The resort's architecture is a blend of Mediterranean and native styles incorporating local stone and thatched roof with white arches and Spanish tiles. Each room has either a large arched doorway or huge glass sliding doors to provide guests with amazing ocean views. Fall asleep after a hard day's dive to the sound of gentle waves and the wind gently blowing through the yucca trees. Office hours: 8am to 8pm Email to arrange airport pickup with a minimum of 24 hour notice. Check -ins are to be arranged in advance if past or before normal office hours. ... more   less
