Best pension house I ever stayed in, in the Philippines”
I was pleasantly surprised by the hospitality of the staff and the overall attention to detail in ensuring that our stay in Moalboal Tropics would be a totally positive experience. The room was very very clean, the aircon worked well, the towels and beddings were new and smelled good, the water pressure in the shower was strong and yes, there was a brand new heater for added comfort. The hostel opened just last year and during our stay (in July 2016) the owners were adding a huge swimming pool which would be operational in two months. But the best asset of Moalboal Tropics were the staff who went out of their way to make our brief stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. When we came back late from our Osmena Peak tour, they did not charge us for the late check-out. The location of Moalboal Tropics may be a bit secluded, around 5-minute walk to the Main Road and a 5-minute tricycle ride from the local mall (Gaisano Mall, which has a grocery and a McDonald's!). But the owners have a tricycle which could pick you up and bring you around town, such as Panagsama Beach (for divers) and Basdaku Beach (for beach lovers) for a fair price. And by the way, I didn't hear the house dogs barking at all (this, as a comment to the previous reviews written here). Congrats and more power to the owners and staff of this lovely pension house!
Hidden Gem in Moalboal”
We were very pleased and happy with our experience in Moalboal Tropics. We got room upgrade at no additional cost! I like also that the resort is following protocols. All the staff are very accommodating and friendly. We were greeted with all smiles, no hassle with booking as well. Upon check-in they have explained very well the rules and guidelines, and have us signed a waiver. The rooms are very clean, with free water and coffee. Toiletries are also provided including slippers. What I also appreciate is the number of guests, I think they have controlled the crowd for everyone's safety. We enjoyed both of the pools since there are few people. It was also very thoughtful to have a playground and trampoline. The free breakfast was also great. We had a very wonderful experience and we will definitely book again in Moalboal Tropics. Thank you so much to all of the friendly staff, we really appreciate your hospitality.
Always a pleasure!”
Moalboal tropics is very clean and has amazing food and even a bar, tiki huts are available and the pool is amazing. The hotel staff are amazing and nice, breakfast is by order but during tourist season it is buffet style, both are delicious so don’t worry. The hotel offers many tourist attractions to be planned through them and a short 3 minute walk to the mall. The mall has a bus stop right across the street so it’s helpful to either get to cebu, or go down to badian or even further. If your going to a beach I recommend white beach using the hotel for transportation comes out cheap with return included and at the beach you can find food and snorkeling
My friends and I are first-time visitors in Cebu. We wanted to tour the south and stumbled upon Moalboal Tropics via Agoda. We didn’t think too much of the place until we got there and we were AMAZED! We initially booked a room with 3 double decks as we ran out of options during booking but Nanay Chona (owner) happily gave us an amazing room in the new building upon arrival. We really liked how the place was constructed - both interior and exterior. It was run by the family so if you see them that way, you will also be treated like one. Nanay Chona - thank you for efforts in providing us the best despite the fact that you were fully booked daily. Your place really felt a home to end the day with after tiring activities.
Two thumbs up”
We had our annual Company Christmas outing 2020 last Dec 29, 2020 and I didnt regret i chose Moalboal Tropics as our venue. Moalboal tropics made our outing one of the best experience we ever had, value for money since they have affordable and reasonable room rates considering the big sized rooms and big beds. And breakfast included. The Owners of the resort is lucky to have Rose and Jessa as their frontliners, Rose and jessa are both accomodating & approachable. Thank you for your excellent service. We didnt expect there'll be such nice resort in Moalboal. Hope to go back there again.
Good day sir!! Thank you very much for appreciating our efforts for making your stay in the hotel enjoyable and we're happy to know that we made your stay here as one of your memorable experience spent together with your family and company staff!! Praying to see you soon!! Stay safe!! Best regards!! God Bless!
Great value, family resort hotel!”
The building where we stayed is either new or newly renovated. The room was clean and well-maintained. We were looking for a place to stay for the night after our Badian trip and Moalboal Tropics fit the bill just right. Its a nice value for money hote with the right amenities and a very good breakfast to top with.
We enjoyed our holiday”
Had a very pleasant and relaxed time at Moalboal Tropics and can definetly recommend it. Our 3 years old daughter had very good times there especially in the large swimming pool. The rooms are large and clean, open buffet breakfast was also ok. One evening they had live music with was also very enjoyable.
Welcoming, clean and charming hotel close to surrounding attractions.”
We stayed for one night at tropics and were overwhelmed by the friendliness and hospitality of the hosts. Lovely people who were there to help and assist you with everything. Good food, cheap drinks, comfortable, clean and air conditioned rooms with cable TV. Transportation available from the hotel at a fair rate to beaches, kawasan falls and for getting buses to Cebu and other destinations. Great spot. Thank you for our stay, good luck in the future! See you again.
Nice Hotel but Beds Need to be Much More Comfortable”
This was my first time for my girlfriend and me to stay at Moalboal Tropics as we were on a tour of Kawasan Falls and Island Hopping in the region. The staff here are extremely helpful in assisting you with your needs/requests (we stayed here for one night and when we checked out, they were nice enough to store our bags while we went out). Rooms are clean; however the beds are not that comfortable. The WIFI on the second floor is not very strong; you have to go to the main floor just to be connected. All in all, it’s an ok hotel.
The hotel was wonderful!”
My family of seven stayed there for a week and had the best experience. The food and variety was so delicious, staff was beyond kind, and the facility was that of a five-star. We could not have had a better experience. Thanks Moalboal Tropics!
Dear Douglas, We thank you for writing a positive feedback at Moalboal Tropics. We are delightful that we reached your expectations and give you the right service during your stay with us. We are hoping that you'll be able to stay with us again. Best Regards, Reservation Management Team
They have animals here that have not had their rabies vaccinations! One cat came up to us while we were eating and scratched my daughter. Now we have to deal with a month of rabies injections and moalboal didnt have a hospital and nearby badian couldnt do the injections promptly. We ran her to Naga. Ruined our vacation. Nobody offered to pay for them or to make sure they get rid of their stray animals so they dont prey on their guests. Not even an apology. Lucky it wasnt a dog bite or a mauling. Nice place, but they just dont care. Dont bring your kids here. ...and the pool is over-treated and burns your eyes right away.
Dear Robert, We would like to extend to you our most sincere apology regarding this accident. And I would like to inform you that we don't raising animals here at the resort. We are hoping to serve you again. Best Regards, Moalboal Tropics Reservation Team
The room were clean and they have hot and cold on their shower. Though their frontdesk is not open 24hrs since we arrived there about 12 midnight, their cook arrives at 6am so we werent able to claim our breakfast since we are leaving in the morning around 5am from our tours, The pool is so relaxing the night after our Canyoneering, we were able to use it, and they allow us to get our breakfast for the next day as dinner since we are leaving early again for our Bohol Trip. All and all we enjoy our stay with Moalboal Tropics.
Thank you so juch
Great jump off point in southern cebu”
The place is near the center of Moalboal and provides activities such as island hopping and canyoneering. For the activities that they don't offer directly, they have recommendations, such as diving, for competitive prices. Their service is good and they have a heated pool that allows for night swimming (up to 10 pm). Their complementary breakfast is also good, with free flowing coffee. Their dorm was clean and had aircon and cable TV.
Thank-you for the positive review. it's been a pleasure to serve you again.
Lovely staff and new built modern rooms”
we moved in when the room was (barely) finished. some cables hanging from ceiling in bedroom and cement dust still in bathroom, but staff taped cables away and cleaned the bathroom. The best part is the personell the was extremely helpful and friendly. Beds were better than average for Philipines (but not hilton style of course) and we got a lot of extra pillows when asking about it. we kept extending our stay every 2-3 days instead of moving on and ended up staying here for 11night I think it was (very long for us, normally 7nights is a long stay). The pool has a ²small and one big water slide that is fun (just tell them to put on water pump if its not on) and the laundry service is good and well worth it (good price). breakfast is small but ok and you can buy an extra portion ot two cheap. food often on the cold side as usual in Ph. except rice or bread on each brekkie you can choose Egg/bacon, eg and sausage (2kinds), egg and dried fish, egg and ground meat, egg and traditional pig (very red) and some other i camt remember. defintely our favourite stay on cebu island.
My go-to hotel”
This is my go-to hotel when I travel for business in Moalboal. I go there once a month. The rooms are clean and spacious. The pool is great plus they clean it everyday. Lots of facilities plus they offer tour packages--very convenient. Recently they just changed they breakfast from plated meal to buffet which is actually better. However, the food is not so tasty. I mean, it's okay. It can fill up my stomach but doesnt really taste great.
Friendly clean lodging”
+ staff were friendly and helpful, clean and spacious enough room for our family of 4. Location is ok, away from beaches but fine if you hire a scooter to see the falls or go to beaches. Pool is not finished and probably won't be for awhile. It'll be even nicer with the pool. Air condition works fine and there's hot water. After reading differing reviews I found it to be a very nice lodging. - location it's a bit of a walk if you want food or anything else. But further perfect for our purposes of seeing the falls and a base to head down to oslob before heading back to Cebu.
Relaxing and hassle free stay”
Staff were helpful - we booked our canyoneering trip via this hotel and they arranged everything for us. Bar staff are great and the drinks are strong! Only a short tricycle ride away from the main part of Moalboal - definitely check out Chilli Bar, there are nights when it turns into a huge party. Rooms were clean, very pleasant stay!
Hello Christina, Thank you for choosing Moalboal Tropics! We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us, your feedback is extremely valuable to us . We love to see you again. Regards, Gold
Resort is new and service is very good!”
We celebrated my 8yo girl's bday in Moalboal and we stayed for a night in this resort with a group of 12 including 3 kids. we had so much fun, pool is clean and rooms are big. We highly recommend this resort to all!
Warning for Robbery in the Rooms!”
Gute Anlage ABER NICHT SICHER! Die Gästeräume haben keinen Safe. An meinem letzten Tag im Moalboal Tropics wurde von den Angestellten einer fremden Person, welche nicht mit mir eingecheckt hat, eine Schlüsselkarte zu meinem Zimmer ausgehändigt. Als ich wieder in mein Zimmer kam war mein ganzes Geld gestohlen! The Rooms, Pool and Restaurant is ok but: At my last Day in Moalboal Tropics the Staff give a Keycard to my Room to a Person they not come there with me together and not check in with me! The Staff give the Keycard to the Person and dont care anymore what happens next. When i come back later to my Room my Bag is opened with a Knife and all my Money is stolen! When i speak with the staff of Moalboal Tropics they say to me its not their fault and they think the Person is with me. So everyone can come to Tropics and ask for a Keycard to the Rooms and steal your belongings because there are no Safety box in the Rooms and the staff is not responsible who they give a Keycard.
First of all we are very sorry for what happened. this is the first time that happened for more than 5 years of operation. With all due respect to you sir, but the lady that ask the keycard was your girlfriend and you that very well. You booked for 3 nights and you checked in together. We always saw you together day and night holding hands in and out of the property. Our contact tricycle driver would drive you together to the house of your girlfriend for 3 days. It's not the hotel's or staff's fault if your girlfriend steals your money on the day of your check out. Most hotels would give 2 keycards, in us only one. As much as we can, safety and security of our guests are our top priority. But in your case, you are responsible with the actions of your girlfriend.
The hotel and rooms themselves are very modern and in good condition, and are fairly well appointed including decent tv and a fridge. The pool is really lovely and was kept very well. The reception area was on loose stones and strangely under some old temporary shelters and really was in contrast to the rest of the hotel. The staff were generally friendly and helpful and helped us arrange day tours and transfers very easily. Food options were very simple but was cheap and perfectly acceptable. Unfortunately there was building work right outside our door which started very early in the morning. Location wise it’s not amazing as it’s a bike ride or a long walk into moalboal town, but there isn’t much there anyway for tourists so you will probably end up getting a bike to panagsama beach which is easy enough
