The hotel has only few rooms scattered next to the ocean. There is not much to do other than snorkeling, diving or relaxing... which is a good thing. Small sandy area on the shore acts as a beach. Within a short walk (or swim) on the ocean there is an excellent reef for snorkeling. The rooms are basic and clean and most have good seaview. The staff could have a bit more attention to details though. Sun chairs and beds were dirty and not taken care of. Also the surroundings could use a little more upkeeping. The staff was very nice and helpful.
Only major issue we had with the hotel was that the restaurant was very overpriced especially considering the average quality of the food and drinks. The nearby Club Serena Resort has by far better food quality and selection for about half the price. It's strange that a high end hotel has cheaper food and drinks than a small place like Blue Orchid.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our beautiful, private, seaside resort accommodation is tucked away in a secluded corner of Mac Payong, just 30 meters from the 2km White Beach. Just a short drive away from Moalboal and Panagsama, it offers a quiet, idyllic setting for your holiday. The location couldn't get any better for diving as one of the best reefs in the area is directly in front of your ocean view room. The reef is perfect for beginner divers, and also for snorkelers. However the step walls make an exhilarating dive for seasoned advanced divers. The resort's architecture is a blend of Mediterranean and native styles incorporating local stone and thatched roof with white arches and Spanish tiles. Each room has either a large arched doorway or huge glass sliding doors to provide guests with amazing ocean views. Fall asleep after a hard day's dive to the sound of gentle waves and the wind gently blowing through the yucca trees. Office hours: 8am to 8pm Email to arrange airport pickup with a minimum of 24 hour notice. Check -ins are to be arranged in advance if past or before normal office hours. ... more less
