“Perfect stopover in Oslob”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

We wanted to swim early with the whale sharks so decided to spend the night in Oslob prior to our visit to the Whale Shark area. This place was perfect - the room is simple but very clean with good wifi and the staff are wonderful. They helped us organise transport to and from the Whale Shark area at a very reasonable price and then also helped us with details on how to get to our next destination - they even walked us to the bus stop to make sure we got on the right bus, made sure the conductor knew where we were going and even hugged us goodbye - they were so sweet! They can organise a great breakfast too for just a few dollars - just let them know the night before.

Good place to rest after whaleshark watching and after swimming in tumalog falls.
The place is well-kept by the Malonzo family. It is very clean, organized and the room is very cozy. The service is great and the place is ideal for couples, family and even solo. The price for the stay is relatively cheap and reasonable. We hope to visit again, soon.

We only stayed here for one night, to go snorkeling with the whalesharks in the morning (which was a fantastic experience).
The people from Malanzo were very nice and very helpful with everything. Arranged our rides and after we came back from snorkeling with the whalesharks our breakfast was ready, excellent service.
Rooms are fine, clean and nice size, pretty basic, but very good value for money.
Next to whaleshark watching there is not much to do in Oslob, so you probably won't be staying there for long.

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!
