Beautiful spot, the friendliest and most helpful staff, the manager, Melissa is delightful and so so helpful! A really welcoming atmosphere and small enough to meet and get to know other guests. The property itself is beautiful with lots of places to sit and relax with a delicious juice or cocktail, as well as the opportunity to do all manner of activities from mountain climbing, diving, canyoning and whatever else you think of doing.
The food was delicious - I've never liked eggs in my life until i had their omlettes, not to mention the rest of the menu which made dinner choices almost impossible - everything was superb.
There's a perfect spot to watch the sunset from on the beach and everything is perfect and peaceful. We already want to go back we miss the place and the people so much!

Room Tip: the spa is the ocean - and a delightful one indeed. the fitness centre becomes the activities you choose to do.

stayed at many hotels around the world but never have i received service like i did at the Blue Orchid!

Food:

i have stayed on 4 different islands in the Philippines and this was the best , one day i mentioned that i felt like eating a pizza so the staff went to another resort to get me one haha,

Management / Service:

Melissa the manager couldn't be nicer, anything we asked for was delivered with her wonderful smile,

Mike the owner genuinely the most interesting man alive

Service staff were lovely and attended to all our needs

Location:

Set on a beautiful reef minutes from the beach, very peaceful and tranquil , go check out the sunset from the roof terrace

Rooms:

very comfortable


Look if you are looking for a luxury Burj Al Arab type resort then dont stay here, if you are looking to get a feel for the real Philippines and meet amazing people stay somewhere peaceful and have the option to do some exhilarating activities then this is your hotel

Me and my wife went to the blue orchid for a our wedding anniversary , on the night of our anniversary we ended up inviting half the guests and had the owner and manger at the meal because we fell in love with the people that much, it was like i was staying at an old friends house rather than a hotel,

Seriously happy and cant wait to go back to Moalboal's little slice of paradise

This is the perfect holiday location for everyone who just wants to relax in a classy yet homey setting: Far away from the fuss in Moalboal The Blue Orchid offers a beautiful garden, big and clean rooms, outstandingly friendly staff and a first class snorkeling reef just in front of the house.

We didn't mind that there was no sandy beach at the lot, since you can sunbath on a sandy platform and swim or snorkel easily thanks to a paved underwater path that navigates you through the starfish.

We also enjoyed the best food during our seven weeks in the Philippines - there are definitely different ways how to grill a tuna steak.

For those who easily get bored, The Blue Orchid offers a variety of daytrips or diving. We liked that a lot, though our impression was, that the dive school was rather chaotic. For nervous or perfectionist divers it might not be the best choice.

The Blue Orchid Resort is one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed in.

The room was comfortable and clean, with a massive bed and a lovely balcony facing the sea. Food was good, and it was great to chill in the restaurant and chat with Michael, the owner, Melissa, the manager, and the other guests after my daily dives. Both Michael and Melissa were very friendly and made sure that my stay was perfect.

Dino, the dive master, is vert experienced and very good. I felt perfectly safe with him, and massively enjoyed every dive - and got to see amazing places and animals, including sea turtles and whale sharks!

I had an amazing time at the Blue Orchid and I would definitely recommend the Blue Orchid resort to anyone traveling to Moalboal.
Such an amazing, beautiful place!

This is the place that I've dreamed about... The beach is beautiful, on the north of white beach, and also private, the icecream-sellers cannot disturb you. The apartmans are big with a huge bed :) the staff is very nice, the manager and the owner are very friendly and helpful. The food are very tasty and they have also european food, if somebody don't want to try the philippines food. You can also go diving or snorkling, the sea is beautiful!!! Thank you so much for this beautiful days!!! Highly recommended for couples!
