Review by Traveloka users

1 Traveloka customers have stayed in this hotel and given reviews:

I wouldn't at all mind travelling this far if I'm going to get the same service. Staff were beyond friendly. They give you everything you need. They were so helpful. Please note that the room you are getting standard or deluxe does not include AC you have the option to but have got to pay Php: 500. AC is not really necessary as the room has enough coldness. Will I recommend this place? Absolutely! Coming back? Definitely!

Awesome hotel paired up with French Kiss Divers
Everything was great from the moment I set foot at Moonlight. All the people working there were exceptionally polite, courteous, and helpful. My room was always clean, safe, and nice grounds outside. Food was great and came to order as I wanted. Had an exceptional time with staff drinking and laughing on my last night after many, many scuba dives with French Kiss Divers. Both Moonlight and French Kiss gave me discounts for utilizing the two in conjunction. Exceptional staff. Just one thing. Remember to bring your own alarm clock for those early morning dives to Gato, because even the roosters won't be crowing yet. Have a great time with Chona, Rouly, Kenneth, Jessa, Marticeda, Tomas, Ailyn, Pamela, and Feliciano. Tell them Mark sent you and just enjoy.Very friendly place. Regards, M. Horsley

Not for divers, etc
It was a cute and cheap little resort but that's about it. Malapascua has a beautiful beach so I would suggest you stay along Bounty Beach. If you are a scuba diver and wants to dive with thresher sharks at 5am, this isn't the place for you. The distance from here to Bounty beach(where all the other restaurants are) is a good 10-15 minute walk which is not a problem during the day. There is a lack of lamp posts (generally around the island) so it was a bit of a problem for me as I was traveling solo. I had to arrange a bike ride from the resort to Bounty Beach at 4:30am for the early morning thresher dive. I stayed there for three nights and not a single day did I get room service. I never asked as I was always out (scuba, island hopping) but I dont remember putting the do not disturb sign on the door.

Very bad experience
We spent 7 nights in Moonlight but we don't recommend this resort because we did not have a good stay there for several reasons: - the staff was not really welcoming and not professional at all. From 9pm, nobody is there to attend your needs (extra blanket (the A/C goes directly on the bed and can't be directed) or water for instance), only a watchman who does not understand english. - the breakfast was poor... although it was included in our rate, we did not eat there in the morning. - we did not have hot water in the shower for several days. The reason that was given to us was unacceprable: they had closed the warm water because clients did not want it and were not able to use their own tap for having only cold water! - no wifi in the room. - the cleaning up was not done on the terrace and the rubbish were left over unless YOU ask for cleaning. - the noise is very disturbing all the time because of the motorcycles passing by. Well, as another reviewer said, it's cheap and in that case you get what you paid for.

If you pay cheap, you get what you pay for
Moonlight Resort was my mistake. I suggest you to be wise and do not make such mistake, only in case you really want to stay there. From internet descriptions it seemed to be a good resort. In fact it is a small resort of few rooms, with a garden, and breakfast area. But the facilities are far beyond expectation. At first the owner gave us a room which did not comply with our booking. Had to discuss, prove the written bookings etc. Finally were given another room. But……. In my sink the water was flowing to the bucket which was just under it, so be ready for “Donald Duck dish washing – water dropping” sensation. You have a tea/coffee making facility, but you have to pay for the coffee/creamer. The room was equipped with fan, but at peak temperatures which just occurred we asked for possibility to switch on the AC (room was equipped with it). It was to be charged extra, so be prepared to pay 12 € / 15 USD for 1 night of using of AC….. On Malapascua you have a white beach, behind that are hotels and dive centres, after that is a local village area, after that starts jungle with no single lamp and only after that, behind a hill, you find a Moonlight Resort, probably most furthermost resort on Malapascua. Getting there with a wheeled suitcase is a great challenge, so in my opinion it is mainly for backpackers. If you return late in the evening bring a torch so you will see the road among bushes and stones…… The resort is also VERY noisy as plenty of motorbikes are passing by 7/24 I am not sure if I can recommend this resort……… If I booked a cheap one, I got what I paid for…..

stayed one night only
booked it via booking.com for one night, which turned to be quite fortunate as we didnt like the place. for what it offers it is overpriced and we didnt find the people running this place friendly.you can get less expensive and nicer places on the beach. If you still plan to there try to avoid being put to one of the two rooms up the hill, as they are completely exposed to the sun. In combination with the resort being somewhere inland, it is getting very hot and nighttime sleep is a challenge.
