The facility and staff is so warm and welcomed. Also the food is nice.. The bed mattresses are so old and totally used up ... almost unbelievable that the hotel owner does not give any attention to the bed mattress problems.

Everything was quite nice, aside that during the time of our visit most of the hotels got problem with the water supply due to a problem with one of their major water source the 'Tumalog Falls'.

I cant find anywhere bettet than here”
i went to this resort two times. It is not far away from town- 10 peso tricycle. 200 peso come and go to whale shark watching in the early morning. Here is very quiet, so i could enjoy deep relaxed time with sea view. There is a private beach directly can go into the sea. Actually the swimming and snorkeling in the sea, watching small colourful fishes swimming were beautiful. Staffs were calmly , and friendly. All of those created amazing retreat for me and mum's trip. I love to go again someday in my life. Thank you lighthouse.

Great view and friendly & helpful staff”
The view is amazing, you go to sleep and wakes up to the sound of the waves from the ocean. For us this was our first time in Philippines and didnt know what to expect really. Oslob is a not a heavy tourist attraction as Bangkok, Phuket etc. Which is good but however the connection on the island is not as well. So we had a problem to withdraw money from 7 different ATMs around Oslob. However the staff was superb! They was so nice and helpful in everyway with this and other thing around too. The locals are very friendly and the environment amazing! Really recommend a trip here and also to stay in The Lighthouse resort.

it was very nice staying before, and i came back again. yes, it is very nice to come back. here was perpect place for me and my mum. the view in the room and in front of room was beautiful. the wave, flowers, trees, wind and light house created calm and beautiful harmony. i just enjoyed with my mum relaxing and lazyness in the swimming pool or in the sea, walked around nearby or took the tricycle to the town...but it was more than best. also appreciate kind & smiley staffs. thank you.

We had only one overnight there but we wish we could have stayed longer. As we wanted to come back it was fully booked, not surprizing! Thank you for your help organizing our pick off from Cebu and further travel to liloan! And thanks that you cooked for us in the evening as we arrived late in your place

Lovely hotel, lovely staff”
This is a real little gem of a hotel. The rooms are simple but equipped with what you need. The pool area and little private beach as well as the cute little ‘lighthouse’ lit up at night make a really nice setting, and it is all located a very easy distance from the whale shark swim making the early start manageably early. The manager is really lovely and always happy to help with arranging trips or transfers, or with meals or drinks.. the food menu is small but with some lovely options, unfortunately quite a few things were not available, which was understanding as there were very few guests when we stayed but still a shame as there is little else available close by... that said all the food we had was really very good. Highly recommend this place!!

Like all Filipinos I have met in hotels/resorts, the proprietorsame of this resort go out of their way to help and assistance you any way they can. The one downside to this property which it common with all resorts is they advertise a swimming pool, which is not big enough to swim in.

tranquil, value for money”
If you need to stay overnight in Oslob, then this place is a great resort to stay in. With only about 5-6 rooms, they are well-designed to take in the scenery. All rooms have their own balcony with sitting area to watch the sea. There is a pool, and an enclosed private beach with white sand. The sunrises are spectacular. Room is well-cooled, shower has hot water, very clean comfort room. It has a small resto with limited food choices but not overpriced. Place has good security. I think the only downside is it's a bit far from the main town and also the whale-shark observation point so one does need a car or another mode of transpo if they need to go to said places. Also right next to highway so it can get loud when big trucks/buses pass by especially at dawn. But all in all, not a bad place to stay in just to recharge from the stresses of city life. The staff is very helpful and courteous too. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Great Place and Value for Money”
The Lighthouse is visibly situated next to the main highway from Cebu to Oslob and you can tell the bus driver to alight u conveniently next to its entrance. The place is generally well-maintained, clean and quiet, and it's good to have their own small private beach and a swimming pool. There is nothing fancy about the room, and at least it has a functioning hot shower and cold aircon. However, there is no bar fridge and you actually have to ask the owner (Margie or her husband) to allow you to put your cold stuffs or drinks in their kitchen fridge. Free breakfast is provided and it's a simple Pinoy breakfast with eggs cooked fresh when u are ready to eat. The location is relatively far from the Oslob town and whale watching sites (about 10-15 mins by tricycle), but at least you can easily get a tricycle transport from php8/pax per trip. We usually travel like this to town for cheaper and more variety of foods, rather than eating in the resort's restaurant.

The room is spacious for 6 people. The resort has a beach front and a pool where you can hang out. The only thing I did not like was the toilet. It is quite untidy and the shower and heater isn't working. Overall, we had a good time.

Nice Seaview”
Love it that there is a seaview right in front of the rooms, with a small beach where crabs go in an out of holes. It was a pity that our days were packed with activities and we did not get to spend much time in the resort. The resort is by the main road so there are sounds of vehicles zipping by once in a while. It was no biggie for us but i am not sure whether this will affect the light sleepers. Only issues were the mosquitoes. But i think it's an issue of the area (near a mangrove swamp) rather than an issue of the resort. Staff was proactive in offering insect repellant to spray in our room.

Amazing place. Extraordinary hospitality”
The place has everything we need. A small private beach and a nice pool. Margie is amazing and the rest of the staff so accommodating. They even cooked food for us that's not in the menu. They even did our laundry. I would definitely come back. I already promoted the place to my family and place. They arranged the trips for us and took care of our food. It's an 8 pesos tricycle ride to the city center and a 20 minute ride to whale shark activity which they can also arrange your ride.

We had an amazing stay at the Lighthouse resort. The friendliness and superb customer service of the staff especially Margie is really commendable. The place is like your own rest house, you can request whatever dish your want in every meal from fresh seafoods to grilled or bbq pork for a very reasonable price. Margie is very accommodating, you will feel so at home at this place plus the relaxing ocean view right outside your room.

Water Supply may be a problem”
As the villa we stayed was newly furnished, water supply was not very stable, and due to the weather and season, water was not sufficient enough (i think this is the problem for the whole area). Other than this, the whole experience was perfect, and we really appreciated the staff to share with us the experience, and helped us a lot to make the whole trip memorable. High recommended!

had a great time in a great place. It was a pleasant surprise. great value for money. I like it that their main concern is that we have a good time. what pisses me off most local resorts is that they put too much attention about their policies rather than the desire of the guests. They put a lot of restrictions, that takes out the enjoyment of our stay. I'm pleasantly surprised with this resort because they really put emphasis on what would make the guests happy. The caretaker - Marj really made us feel very welcomed. The place is also a few minutes ride to the waterfalls and whale shark watching. Will definitely go back..
