This was the first dedicated dive resort my partner and I have ever stayed at and we were delighted with everything. Dolphin House has been designed with everything in very close proximity - the rooms, the dive centre, the bar/restaurant, spa and fitness suite. Our room was very clean, spacious, had firm foam mattresses on the beds and really good storage space. The team at the dive centre were great to dive with and had a range of lovely dive sites to choose from. We made good use of the spa and had fantastic Philippine massages from experienced masseurs. And ... to top it all ... the food was “to die for”. The chef had a wide range of mouthwatering dishes to choose from each day and she really knows how to make the most awesome deserts ! I’ll miss them greatly ! We got chatting to lots of other guests and make new diving friends here. A tip for others considering Dolphin House ... the journey from Cebu airport is only c.60 miles but the roads are very busy and you have to cross the hills to the other side of the island. Our journey took 3.5 hours but, when planning our trip, we had contacted the Dolphin House team and they offered us their service to collect us from the airport and take us back at the end of our holiday. It was well worth the peace of mind. Make sure you allow 3-4 hours for your transfer to/from the airport and you’ll have enough time. Really noticeably, all the staff at Dolphin House were lovely, very helpful and friendly. We had a great

    We like the snorkeling area the best, very convenient in front the hotel is the snorkeling area, so many fish and corals the best. The place is very relaxing. We just don’t like the CR no bidet and the food is delicious but expensive. The staff very friendly and accommodating.

    beautiful oasis on a great dive/snorkel reef

    Dolphin House was a beautiful oasis on a gorgeous house reef. The resort has multiple areas set up for guests to sit, enjoy the views (whether of the water or the pool) and relax. The dive shop was well organized and professional. Your first dive will be a "welcome dive" on the house reef and after that you can extend to other local sites such as Pescador Island and the Sardine run. The house reef also makes for great snorkeling. Neighboring White Beach was a local hangout and not as inviting as I had anticipated, but between the house reef and the pool, there was not much need to venture out. There menu wasn't extensive, but there were always at least several appealing options. And the drinks were yummy. The wifi wasn't perfect, but worked ok. And the rooms had AC, which was a big plus for sleeping. We were very happy with our stay and would definitely recommend the Dolphin House to those staying in Moalboal. Do note that the hotel is opposed to the whale shark tours and will not help you make those arrangements. (I won't comment on that, but look it up for yourself).
