the place is good for divers. the rooms are quite pricey, but the room is big. the only good thing here is the food and the quite evenings. and for the pricey rooms and are dusty. if you want a white sand beach? you have to walk along the shoreline and walk for minutes and fine the public beach area.

Our rooms are spacious with amazing views but i do apologize if you found some dust. White beach is a 5 minute walk along the...

Blue Orchid is the most relaxing, enjoyable, resort i’ve ever stayed in. Right off the bat we were greeted by the managers Bill and Lisa, who are friendly and gregarious and get to know all of their guests. Bill brought us to our room and I was stunned. High ceilings with an extremely comfortable giant bed, and floor to ceiling...

Upon arrival we were met with a drink and Steve discussed the many options for us to participate in while we were at the resort. No pressure, just making sure we knew that they would do whatever was necessary to make our stay enjoyable. The view from our room was fantastic overlooking the water and sunsets.

This is our first stop in Philippines. The pickup at Cebu airport went without a hitch and it was a three hour ride to Blue Orchid. Rene was great and you are made to feel welcome and at home. This is not a large resort and everything is very casual. We had the Romance package and it was worth the...

Finally a resort that knows what customer service is. From the moment you arrive is smiles all round from the staff a friendly welcome and a sense you have found somewhere special.

The hotel staff they are nice people but the hotel is way to far from the main road. About a 10-15 minute ride from the main road and the road to get there is full of rocks and potholes. This might have been okay if there were taxis waiting outside to take you but there is none . You have...

Decided to visit Moalboal from Cebu last minute and found a good deal at Blue Orchid Resort. An email confirmation alerted me that the resort is cash only. So I brought enough for the room and meals. Unfortunately I didn't realize the resort has a huge menu of activities to do. So my one big tip is check their website...

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
