Malonzo Pension House
Ranked #1 of 23 Oslob B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We arrived a bit late to Oslob, after 7 pm, and got an amazing welcome. As we entered the house, the family was celebrating their son's birthday and they immediately arranged a table for us with drinks and invited us to join a great buffet dinner. The next morning they arranged a driver to take us to the whale sharks and helped us rent an under-water camera which was great.
They were all so nice and helpful and really made us feel at home, their son even escorted us to the ceres bus when we left and waited with us to make sure we are taking the right one.
The pension and rooms are really clean and nice. Highly recommended! Thank you Eva and your all family for such an amazing stay!

Really enjoyed my stay here. All the family members were so helpful and genuinely friendly. Organised Whale Shark transport and camera.

Rooms basic but immaculately clean, honesty system for drinks fridge and some instant food available. Very small town so only local eateries available so bring food or be happy to eat in the local restaurants. I recommend take away hot chicken from market with some rice and chilli. Hosts organised this while I went for run.

Highly recommend.

The owner, Eva, is the reason why Malonzo Penion is a Gem. She makes sure that the rooms are immaculately clean and tidy. The dining area where the snacks and drinks are located is neatly arranged. . Guest can get his snack and just write it down on the paper provided on the table. At the end of the day, Eva will just compute and include in your room bill. Wifi is strong and the best of it all, the linens and towels smell good. The towels are pristine white...better than those of the 5-star hotels. Btw, she will not let you bring the towels to the falls and the beach. That is why her towels are very clean.
Eva will alsoarrange the transport for the guest and recommend good place to eat. She makes sure that your trip in Oslob is worthwhile. We didn't bring underwater camera and she provided one for us.
For the budget conscious travelers, I highly recommend the place. You get more than what you pay for. Friendly and helpful owners and staff. Eva, you are really a gem. We will definitely go back to Malonzo.

Nice, homey, clean, reasonable - really a good place to stay while visiting Oslob. The owners are extremely nice, and they take care of organizing transport for whale shark watching, waterfalls and whatever else - they even walked us to the bus when we were leaving!
The garden is nice to hang out on during day, as there is not that much to do in Oslob.

I'd recommend getting dinner there as well, as food in Oslob is, in best case, slightly sketchy (at least not refrigerated).
Some reviewers recommend Caesars - I strongly disagree! When we went there the food just looked old and bad, and one of the plates had more ants than food on it. Stick to bakeries and fresh, cut fruit from the fruit market.

Oslob itself is kind of boring (except whalesharks and waterfall), but Malonzo's is a great place to hang out and relax!

My family and i stayed with Rene and Eva for one night about three weeks ago. We had spoken with Eva on the phone that morning, but after a long Ceres bus ride we got there early evening. Rene greeted us at the gate and two minutes later we had a room and a cold San Miguel! Rene and Eva could not have been nicer. Before we went to bed Eva asked us what time we wanted our breakfast, we said 6:15, and it was on the table at 6:15.

Just fantastic service, when we are in Oslob again, we'll be staying with Rene and Eva.

The owner is the sweetest. Super helpful, lovely family, good value. Clean nice rooms and bathroom, worth the extra money, 15 min drive from whale shark site (which I dont really think was worth it but thats another story) Great breakfast.
Really nice vibe, great outdoor garden, loved this place.

ps. pension house on opposite side of street is noisy with karaoke, but didn't bother me too much.

We stayed here 1 night so we could do the whale sharks in the morning. Very easy to find if you got their by bus. Just get off the bus at the market in town and ask anyone and they will direct you their. Short walk from bus stop. The family was so helpful in arranging a driver for us to see the whale sharks. The driver showed us where to go and what to do and stayed and waited for us to take us back. We were invited to share in a buffet dinner in honor of their sons birthday as well. Great food, awesome family! The room was spotless and we had no complaints at all. They have an area that is open with a fridge and goodies. You just take what you want and write it on the sheet with your room number on it and pay at check out. We were even escorted to the road when we left to make sure we got on the correct bus!!
