We arrived very late at night and first impressions were very good. Had a lovely pool and the room was huge with an ocean view. However not much furniture in the room and NO TV which was my husband wasn't happy about. We chose to stay here due to the location on White Beach but the beach was a huge...

This place has a very nice feel to it, and when you arrive here, they welcome you with open arms. At checking it's made clear what kind of activities they offer and they are rather expensive. The food is good, but also pricey, and since you are away from Moalboal hub, you tend to stay here for dinner. Rooms are...

We stayed in one of the "deluxe" ocean front rooms and whilst the view was beautiful the room was tired and in desperate need of updating. There's a lack of furniture, no where to sit in the room except the bed and what they do have is old (despite responses from management saying it's been updated). There is a shared...

Stayed at this resort for 1 night in Jan 2017. I'm giving this resort 5 stars because the staff made our stay really great. Having had a bad experience the night before at another hotel, Renee gave us a lovely warm welcome and the staff couldn't do enough to ensure everyone was looked after. It was bad weather during our...

The staff at Blue Orchid could not have done more for us during our visit. In fact, we liked it so much that we stayed an extra couple of nights! They serve the best food in the Philippines out of a kitchen filled with happy, laughing staff. We were greeted with mostly rainy weather, but the Blue Orchid staff went...

We originally only planned on staying at the Blue Orchid for 3 nights Over Christmas, but had such a good time we stayed an extra night. We were made to feel very welcome on check in by Bev and given lots of helpful info about the things to do. The rooms were lovely, spacious and a very comfy bed :-)...

I only stayed at the Blue Orchid Resort one night so I can't give a true review really, only to say that it is quite difficult to find in the dark! You will also need to pay a fee to enter the property, even if you are staying there. Apparently you can have this refunded to you but of course...

We spent 6 nights at Blue Orchid in December and it seemed like our only option in Moalboal for my friends who wanted to dive, and for me who wanted a place for rest and relaxation. Note to travelers, the hotel is 3-4 hours from the airport so plan to stay 3+ nights in Moalboal. (Unless you arrive at 1...

We were a group of 13 persons having a perfect holiday in Moalboal over the Christmas time. We really found a perfect place to spend our holiday in Moalboal further away from the noice and people.

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
