“A home in Oslob”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Place is clean and peaceful. They only serve breakfast but Eva has a friend that serve good meals for lunch and dinner. She will take care of all your needs from food to whale shark watching, underwater camera, driver, waterfalls, everything. ;) I love this place. Thank you! :)

Room Tip: Rooms 3 and 4 has good view of the lawn and ocean.

We had aircon. and a big shower with hot water.
If you want to eat some nudles, drink Coke and talk, they have it.
For whale watching (swiming) and to the falls, they organise it.

Nice owners,
Thank you :-)

Had a lovely stay at the guest house even if it was only for one night. Rooms are spartan but spotlessly clean. The owners are what makes this place though they are so helpful. They booked the entire whale shark trip for us and when we arrived they even walked us to a nearby restaurant and helped us order some food.

Breakfast was lovely and served with much care and attention. It was the usual Philippine offering of eggs many ways or pancake but it was tasty.

When we left the owner even walked us to the main road and made sure we got on the right bus!

All in all I would definitely recommend if you want to stay in the heart of oslob.

Eva and Renee will go out their way to accommodate your needs in their simple but very clean and well run operation. We arrived extremely late because the flight was delayed, yet Renee was up to welcome us and early in the morning smiling and with all organized for our whale shark experience. Wish there were more replicas of the Malonzo Pension House around the country. Keep up please

stayed 2 nights with my family. malonzo pension house is in a quite street just 2min walk from the national highway where the buses stop. the simple but very comfortable and very clean rooms are lovely. there is aircon,hot shower in the rooms. the lounge area in the garden is lovely and has a cool breeze. you can buy snacks and drinks all day and night long on help yourself base and just write down what you had and pay at check out. they have a lovely young girl who is helping them out with whatever and she did our laundry and washed it so well that our white clothes were white again!the owner eva and her sister amor are such lovely people that you never want to leave the place! they have a friend,salome,who owns a little eatery and cooks the best food in town! its called ceasars place or ceasers restaurant and to be honest we found it was the only pleasant place in town to eat. the decor is lightful and she cooks everything fresh. if you want to eat fish or seafood just tell her and she will grill it for you! on top of it she is a very generous and very lovely lady who will do everything to satisfy your food wishes!
its just a five minute walk from malonzo pension.
you can order breakfast at malonzo but we ate at the bakeries at the national highway.
eva and her sister will arrange a driver for you to pick you up early in the morning to bring you to the whalesharks. the driver will wait for you until you are finished and will either drive you back to the pension or if you wish to stop at the waterfalls nearby he will bring you there too.
we found the driver picking us up at six in the morning very very convenient!!!!
the little town of oslob is suprisingly beautiful and very pretty! make sure you walk around and have a look to some heritage buildings and the sea.the people you will encounter will all give you a genuie smile and the whole village is very laid back and friendly! on the market you can buy all kind of fresh fish,veggies and fruits which you can bring to salome and she will cook it for you in a very delicious way!
eva and her sister and in fact the whole family is simply beautiful! when we left we all took photos of each other and everyone there was exceptionally friendly! that girl who did our laundry has an incredible smile and amor daughters are gorgeous and eva and her husband are very relaxed people! this is truly home away from home and i am very sure that my family and i will be back one day!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: we stayed in room nr four,first floor. all rooms have a little sitting area outside.

Seriously the best.

I was there at the beginning of Feb to see whale shakes and Eva arranged everything. When we first arrived, she asked when we were thinking of whale watching and helped arranged transport for the whale shark watching the next morning. She also told us the price and if I do not recall wrongly, transport was about 250 php for two and 1000 php per person for the whaleshark watching itself. She also gave us information on where we could eat dinner around Oslob and when we came back with some dinner, she provided us with utensils. Was an awesome stay.

when we left, Rene, Eva's husband, actually walked us out to the main road and waited for the Ceres bus with us - In the rain! (We did find shelter, just that he will didn't need to walk with us but he did.)

One thing I hope you would do is order breakfast from them: they aren't charging you much for your stay in compared to most places in Cebu so I seriously recommend ordering breakfast from them. It's a great gesture of goodwill :). Btw, breakfast was elegant and great! :)

Have a great stay :)
