5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

Dolphin house is a little paradise that me and my dong would like to go and visit again...they have warm smiles and welcome upon our arrival they even wrote your name in a white board welcoming u..during our check in they give us a welcome drinks and accommodate us.. bring to our room with ladies in colorful "sarong " (big handkerchief with tropical prints wrap around in their lower body) when we enter the room I was so stunned the room is full of colorful flowers in your bed in your towels in your mini bar even in bathroom in basin full of flowers...if I rate the room scale up to 5 it will be 4.5 nice and clean but NO TV.. my dong said they didn't put tv so people will not stay inside in the room but to have activities outside.the resort offer many activities diving kayak snorkeling they even have library and bar that so amazing..they have also a big shop for souvenir loving it..it's quite pricy the souvenirs but it's worth it's really nice..they have little cottage in the shoreline with nice bridge ...the food hmmmf it's kinda of great except the dinner they have fix dinner a night and they gather all guests in the resort to join dinner together,but dinner serve late..like 30 minutes late from the time expect..and transportation going to the city center or airport..they don't have that if they do have so few or not always available coz they have few guests in the resort coz their rooms Are few yet they wasn't able to give us car back to cebu... but all in all it's nice out of 10 it's 8.9

Driving off nowhere of Moalboal, haven't decided yet where to go, no idea where to stay...on the internet there's a lot of places but so expensive and the service is pretty bad... Fortunately we found this paradise.. 3 things I love the most about the place; the friendliness of the Cebuanas and the Cebuanos trying their best to serve you like a king and queen at the same time as a friend, the beautiful sunset that catches every single eye in the island, and the perfect beautiful and preserved corals for scuba divers like me... Unforgetable experience... We will definitely come back... ABOVE ALL AN EXCELLENT PLACE:::food, services, rooms, staffs and everything EXCELLENT!!

Room Tip: Any room is perfect in any angle of the resort...if you choose privacy choose a bugalow, but if you...

Quality of room, service, world class cuisine, all exceeded my expectations of a small boutique resort in the middle of no where in a little village in Cebu island! Dive center was fabulous with amazing dive guides and instructors. They made a world of difference for this dive trip!!
I am definitely going back as 4 nights were not enough!

The sunsets serve as a blazing backdrop for the beautiful resort. Don't miss the sunset cruise and sing along. Get a wonderful massage. Every meal is spectacular. Even the family owners are friendly and attentive. The dive staff was also exceptional. We loved our time at Dolphin House.

We had our wedding at Dolphin House and they absolutely went above and beyond to provide a warm, fun and comfortable stay for us and all our guests. They are primarily a dive resort, but they made an exception for us by agreeing to take carriage of all the arrangements for our intimate wedding ceremony. We have had nothing but glowing feedback from all our guests (all of whom also stayed at the resort), especially in regards to the service from the local staff. The staff are friendly, efficient, and accommodating. The food is always great - they prepare European-style dishes mainly. The ginger creme brulees are delicious and should not be missed! The rooms are always clean, simply furnished in the local style but very comfortable. Facilities are well-maintained. The games room upstairs is great, especially during rainy weather, as you can chill out with a spectacular view over the water and play pool or board games. The dive shop is wonderful, and we especially enjoy being able to talk to the on-staff marine biologists about the marine life we see during our dives. The house reef is a great dive site in itself, with turtles, sea snakes, sea horses, eels, nudibranchs and myriad other critters to be seen. The spa is also worth checking out - the massages are really very good. Thanks especially to Rudy, the owner, for being so patient and accommodating all our many requests during the wedding weekend and in the months leading up to.

I stayed there one night with my Wife and it was quite an experience ... I was in cebu city and i advise that minimum three hours of driving are requested from cebu city... Place is not that easy to find but once u are there you Will not regret it... There are a dozen of bungalow and i choose the deluxe room.. Room are nice but the view is outstanding especially from the table you can have breakfast and dinner.. Exactly in front of the ocean... Around there is no much but if you want to have a romantic experience this is your place...
Ps i am not fan of scuba diving but this is i think one of the best places on earth to do it!!
