                    Glad we moved here! ”

                    Prior to Emok's we were booked at Le village hostel , since we couldn't extend our stay and private rooms in Panagsama were fully booked and seems to be pricey, ive decided to book in Emoks since the reviews arent that bad. They helped us with our bags, when the staff saw us immediately. Rusty made sure that we have the towels, soap and gave us the wifi password. Place was clean, there were hammocks outside and submissive dogs whom you can play with. I am so in love with Pia, the brown one. Food could be better, Affordable cocktails in Pitchers! Wifi is extremely fast, it was turn off for a bit because there was a couple who shouldnt be there from other hotel but using their wifi. We really appreciate Rusty for sitting with us, exchanging stories about Nursing stuff. We checked out early the next day because we were going to Oslob, they helped us reached the bus stop at no additional costs with their tuktuk. Disclaimer: Poblacion is far from the Panagsama beach, if you have the budget, rent a tricycle, haggle for a back and forth service. If you're on a tight budget, look for a tricycle that will bring you to the Panagsama Market, from there ride another tricycle going to Panagsama beach. If you wait for other passengers, it would cost you 25php per head. Location was not a problem for us, since our itinerary was just for Kawasan falls and Oslob tour for the following day. Overall, If i am gonna travel with my friends ill prefer to stay here again, if solo, i would choose hostels near Panagsama to save.

                    When we arrived, at first there was a mix up. The room was listed to 181 sq meters is size. When we inspected, it might have been 12-15 sq meters... According to them it was a typo... They offered an additional room that was not being used for 500 Philippine Peso's or approx. $10. It worked out fine for the 11 people in our group. The owner, her son, and the other staff were very gracious, and warming. The rooms were basic. Bed, Shower, and toilet, a desk, and a TV, the shower also had a hot water unit for hot showers. They have a café/kitchen, where they will either cook for you, or you can use the facilities to cook your own food for free. You are asked to clean up after yourself. There is a bar with beer, and alcoholic spirits if you wish. There was free coffee available at any time of the day. They were apologetic about the room mix-up. Everyone in our party enjoyed the stay, and the hospitality of the staff, and owner. Thanks you so much Emok's for a great weekend...

                    Really Accommodating Staff and Owner!”

                    I must say that this is close to the dock area for Moalboal activity center. If you're really in a tight schedule and wish to be somewhere near the activity center of Moalboal this is a place to be. The activity center is like 10min. walk (brisk walking) They serve breakfast at 7:00 am to 10:00 am. The room has: - hot and cold shower - hygiene utilities - towel but they don't have slippers. The facility has free hot and cold water anytime. There's a water dispenser every corner of the facility. Please don't expect too much in the room because its really simple and the surrounding is quiet and you can really sleep and relax. I recommend this for people who are a BUDGET TRAVELER. The mother of the owner allowed us to take a bath and change clothes in their restroom area even if we already checked out from our room. She's really kind.

                    I booked on Agoda a 1 night stay, ended up staying 3 nights. I stayed in the 8beds dorm with fan, I was alone so I had it all for me. The family who owns the place is awesome, friendly, helpful and generous. They had a family dinner party and invited us, food was delicious, we tried the Cebuan linchon. Also you can order food there if you want. You can rent a motorbike for 400p/24hrs and easily reach the beaches, hot springs and waterfall. There are hammocks in the garden to chill and you can cook your own food if you want. They just let you feel like at home, I really enjoyed my stay at Emok's, definitely recommended! Also they organize karaoke nights quite often.

                    Budget Saving”

                    The location is walkable distance from Moalboal Highway about 20 meters at the back of Petron Gas Station very accesible if you will take the South Bound Bus. It is not a beach front property hence cheaper than most.. It will cost you about P200.00 1 way tricycle ride to get to Panagsama Beach for the Sardines Run snorkeling activity and another P200.00 to get to the White Beach. The advantage of this location considering its proximity to the town proper is you get cheaper food choices near the market area and catching the Ceres Bus in and out of Moalboal for your other Southern Cebu adventures. The owner especially Mdm Elsa is very kind and accomodating she is extra nice to me and my group. Unlimited coffee and filtered water, wifi and TV IN THE DINING AREA. Id stay here again if i will be around Moalboal.

                    This is a well recommended place tonstay in moalboal. Aside for the budget friendly price. Their staff is so nice and friendly. They allow us to use the kitchen so we can prepare our food. Also they offer unlimited coffee here. They also have bar where you can chill and hangout with friends. Thay even allow our friends stay there while waiting for the room to be vacant since we did’nt expect that we will be there so early in the morning! Hoping to stay here again in our next visit.

                    Our stay at Emok's was very satisfactory. The people managing the place were so warm and hospitable. Despite the hot weather, their place is breezy because of the trees surrounding the place. Highly recommended. :D

                    If you like a peaceful place this is where you should go. Its far from the discoes but thats what I like. Nice clean room. The family is kind and helpful. When I visit Moalboal again its more than likely I would go there again.

                    Place is apt if you're a budget traveler. Rooms are okay. We didn't need anything fancy just a place to sleep. The owner and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They gave us tips on how to explore Moalboal.

                    Stayed here for 1 night with my 4 friends. They offered spacious room that can accommodate us. Staffs and the owner are welcoming and approachable and do offered us to hitch with them back to Cebu City, less hassle. Will recommend this to everyone. :)

                    Awesome owners, super knowledgable, great and cheap food as well as drinks if you don't mind partying there. For the price it's crazy hard to beat, comfy enough rooms and beds, it was great for what it was.

                    Atmosphere was a little quiet, apparently quite a few people had happened to check out the day before I arrived and it was better on other times. This place is useful as it's nearish to the buses, good if you're exploring by bike, but there's no nightlife. Everything, including the hostel bar, closes early, the action is down by Panagsama beach. Might be better if the place is busier. Staff were helpful and room was comfortable enough for the price. Wifi worked well. Would recommend

                    It's good value for money and the rooms are clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. It's not close to the beach but it's not a problem because they help you get around too. Food is really affordable. This is more a backpacker/budget place though so obviously don't expect 5-star facilities.

                    I booked our room on the exact day of our stay. We had it booked just for the night as we have to leave early the next day. I booked just right before we were headed there. I have been calling/texting them just to make sure that they saw my booking appointment but no one is answering, so we braved the night and walked in instead. They were expecting us (my friend overheard them as we walked in), meaning either they have seen our booking online and/or saw my calls and text but just preferred not to answer. The place was accessible and has acceptable amenities, but really, communication sucks. Staff were all polite and hospitable in person though. I got their number from Agoda.
