My boyfriend and I just left Blue Orchid and were sent off by two of the managers (Michele & Steve) with a hug and well wishes. We could not have felt more at home here. The entire staff is incredible and so so so helpful! Don't miss happy hour and enjoying a "Bee's Knees". Most of the guests hang out...

Stayed there for 3 nights in February 2017. Perfect location, good food, great dive center. But the most intriguing there is the staff. We were welcomed by Renee, part of the management team. She and all the other members of the staff were always at hand if we had questions, always friendly, with a big smile, never tired of our...

Stayed here for a night while in Moalboal with the kids. Place is clean and relaxing. Lots of trees and big mosquitoes so better bring a repellant with you. Doesn't have a shoreline but you can swim during high tide. Wished to have a TV in their rooms though.

I was originally just going to book 2 days here but I am so glad I realised that wouldn't be enough time to do everything! I loved my time at the resort, firstly the restaurant is the best in the area, I did try a local restaurant which was very disappointing. Restaurant at resort makes the best food by a...

We stayed 11 nights at the Blue Orchid and it is very much to our taste. It was very much as expected and in our opinion fairly priced, it is not a budget resort, but you do get what you pay for. The hotel is located on a reef with a submerged causeway with easy access to a fantastic reef...

We stayed here at the very beginning of our travels for 5 night. It was ideal for what we wanted; peace, calm, friendly hosts and staff, beautiful surroundings..... The rooms are huge, the beds clean and comfortable, the only lacking area is storage. The resort is spotless, clean swimming pool and full of colourful vegetation. The staff are perfect, with...

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
