In short: we simply loved it and want to go back A.S.A.P. The food was really good...in such a remote place to get quality food is extremely surprising. Oh, and their mango shake in the morning ROCKS!!! I am already thinking to do a Rescue Diver course with them just to feel the air and sense the sea next to...

Me and a friend stayed here for four nights and it was definitely not enough time. The resort is great and has a family feel to it. Everyone was so friendly to one another. The staff were amazing and couldn't do enough to help!! They were always around for any questions or queries. We interacted the most with Renee and...

We stayed here for 4 nights and from the moment we arrived after a 4 hour car journey, we were made to feel welcome. They have a great set up here (in fact other boutique hotels should visit and follow their suit) the open kitchen/bar is open from 8am to 8pm serving the whole menu so no restrictions on what...

This is the kind of place that I would love to give top rating. But I do think there is a bit room for improvement. It is a small place – only 15 rooms, which I think is great. The 4 guys running the resort & dive center are so nice and helpful – and very, very personal which is...

I was fortunate enough to stay at this lovely resort for a quick weekend getaway and really enjoyed my stay. As others have pointed out, in addition to the magnificent view, spacious but simplistic rooms and the great food, the true sparkle in this gem of a resort is the staff. Everyone I interacted with was so incredibly nice but...

I'm traveling around with my new scooter... Moalboal we needed some gasoline... And a small lunch... While we were eating I look in TripAdvisor what places they have here... And we booked it immediately... And we were impressed...! A really warm and familiar welcome, shown us around the whole resort (small, only 15 rooms!)... Tropical garden, birds and a oriental...

Many thanks to owner Mike and the dive team of Renee, 'Bev', Steve and Michelle and the whole local crew for a super 3 night stay and a memorable birthday weekend. Nothing was too much effort and the food was great with fun cocktails at happy hour. The resort is very relaxing with the great views and a lovely sea...

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
