I have been visiting Moalboal for 2 years now and only last fall I discovered IL SOGNO. I have not stayed anywhere since because this one is the best...Clean and what a view! When you walk out of your room, few steps and you are in the sea watching the most beautiful corals in Moalboal and the wonderful fish.

We have stayed here several times and this by far is the best in Moalboal. There's no place like it. Spacious bedroom and bathroom. Squeky clean. The staff are well-trained and very accommodating. The owner Franco and his partner Jorenda are the best ever. They will attend to all your needs. You wake up looking out the window and you... More

Wonderful two nights here. Ocean-front, with stairs down to the reef (no beach). We found the sardine shoal literally right in front of our room and snorkeled amongst them for an hour or so, but if they aren't there, go left (south). Our room was large with a good shower and air conditioning. Wi-fi worked well. On TA recommendation, we... More

We stayed at Franco's house for 2 nights- our room faced the ocean and our backyard was a legit aquarium. We went snorkeling, literally 5 steps away, and saw tons of fish, a huge turtle, and witnessed sardine runs!!! The house reef is AMAZING and not to be missed. Snorkeling gear can be rented for 100php from a dive shop.... More

Thanks Franco for your fantastic hospitality, this place is really amazing, ideal for relaxing in front of the sea, very clean and big rooms, a italian touch cousine and in top Of that this place is 10 meters from the rift... So also snorkling and diving are easy and really unique!

We stayed during Easter days this year; we have 14 months old baby and the staff was great also in keeping an eye on him while we were swimming. Place is simple but very well maintained and clean and it has direct access to the sea with the coral reef just 5 meters away from the shore: great for snorkeling!... More

Time to relax Franco and his staff are a treasure in Moalboal. I stayed for 6 days, it was very enjoyable. The rooms are clean, spacious and a comfortable bed by Filipino standards. They made it so easy for me and I always felt so welcome. Keep up the great work guys.
