We were a big group of people and we had rented all rooms of the resort together. I must say that the Moonlight resort is exactly what we expected: a very neat and clean and comfortable, cosy place with wonderful nature around. Quiet enough to relax and be on our own, but close enough to the next lovely beach to walk within 2 minutes!!
When I read other peoples comments here, I don´t know what they expect when they book a resort by this price on a small Island like Malapascua! No ATM machine! Wow .... of course not. Its called nature what you will find there! I thought thats why people book on small Islands, to find a piece of nature remaining and NOT technical equipment all over. Well, too bad they don´t even know the difference between moonlight and midnight.
Anyway, I can say that our stay was very very positive. The place is a at a silent corner of the Island, 10 minutes walk away from the Village Logon where you will find several restaurants. The garden of the Resort is arranged very nicely. Quiet and beautiful flowers. Very relaxing and perfect for our kids who played there while we were sitting at the restaurant. The staff was very friendly. A little slow in cooking, but we solved this problem with ordering the food for dinner in the morning and then it worked perfect! By the time we came back from the beach, the food was already served!
Very positive was the way they wrote bills: Nothing, really nothing was wrong on it. I double-checked the bills each time and nothing was forgotten or added , they are very reliable in this point. The food was delicious and the servings huge, the price ok. The rooms were very big, enough space for 3 people to feel really comfortable. Wifi working well. It was very clean and the aircondition was working perfect! The matress of the beds was extremely comfortable. Sometimes there was little low water when we showered at the same time in all rooms. We solved this by showering one after the other. :)
Another positive point: the restaurant normally closes at 10. We wanted to sit there and talk until late night. They brought a karaoke system for us as soon as we asked for it. And there was one guy staying awake with us, patiently fulfilling our wishes until we went to bed. Thanks to him, that made us feel very special !!
The closest beach there is the Mongrove Beach, which is just around the corner. Its a nice silent sand beach wich is almost empty! We enjoyed to be there by our own. The legendary Bounty Beach is on the other side of the Village, only 15 minutes walk away. But you will find beaches all around, in whatever direction you go, as expected by an Island :) The nightlife is happening at Bounty Beach but we were not interested to go there as we wanted to stay by ourself anyway. The trip back to Cebu City was also arranged by the hotel and to our full satisfaction! We found a helping hand everywhere and for everything.
I would always come back to this hotel in this family-atmosphere!!!
