Melronz inn - Oslob - Bedroom
1
9.4 Excellent (85 reviews)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I like the ocean front. Fantastic view. It was like a private beach front property. The host is super nice and helpful. The rooms are huge, clean and super nice! I think overall this is one of the best property in this region. In terms of price and quality! You must not miss this one from the bottom of my heart! I’d give a rating of 101%!!! I don’t earn a cent from this but I am really saying it is really really really a fantastic place to stay! The ambience... wow! The seaview... wow! The host.... wow!
Cons: I liked everything about the property.... no complains... the most satisfying stay in my life!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Located right on the beach was nice. Small tables with chairs were everywhere, making a romantic place to sit and talk with your someone special. Because M. I also like the location across the street from Kawasan falls entrance. We simply walked from our room to the falls which are not to be missed. I will post some pictures when I get them ready. This is a great place to stay.
Cons: The shower was not the best but that is no deal breaker at all. This gem is very special in many ways. It has a Mediterranean vibe with many artistic touches. Friendly staff, and seemingly a local hangout for guides. They never tried to sell their services while on their own time. They were happy and outgoing with me.

Overview Reviews
Located in Oslob, Island Front / Bangcogon Resort and Restaurant is within a 10-minute drive of Tumalog Falls and Oslob Church. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. A shuttle from the airport to the hotel is complimentary (available 24 hours).
9.5 Excellent
Pros: location was amazing, right at the sea, and the activities we did (whaleshark swimming and sumilon Island) were so close by, and the resort takes care of everything!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was close to Sumilon Island. The Manager/owner arranged the Whale shark swimming (1050php) as well as the Gopro (550php) I rented for this experience. They even helped me to book a ferry to Bohol, Panglao Island directly from Oslob [there are two times the ferry run ~ 10:30am and 11:30am]. They were very kind and the food was amazing. The shower was cool water which I knew about and it was cool and refreshing especially after a hot humid day. Throughout the day and during the night you can hear the waves on the shore. It's a very peaceful area. If you travel with a scooter 1.3km down you'll be at the whale watching area. There are a few convenience shops and other accommodations and mini restaurants. It was a great stay.
Cons: Everything was perfect.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The best view you get. The food was great and didn’t expect with a lot of food you can choose from the menu in their restaurant and also it was a great value with the free breakfast. The staffs are very accomodating.
Cons: Though you can ride a bus from this area it will still take a long ride going back to the city for commuters but overall it was great.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Seaview with amazing corals 10 meters from the beach. Local atmosphere as an adventage :)
9.3 Excellent
Pros: We were a bit worried about the location at first, but it was great! To Sumilon Island you just have to walk 20m to catch a ride on the boat and there was a Marine Sanctuary right in front of our rooms (which allowed for some amazing snorkelling)! It's not so near to the Whale Shark area, but if you're ok with walking (which we were) it's a 15min trip and we found the area to be quite safe (even in the evening). The rooms were good and the balcony had an amazing view where you can almost jump to the beach. Breakfast was quite diverse and tasty, especially the tuna sandwich.
Cons: I keep saying this, although it is common in the Philippines, but a separation between the shower and toiled would be nice (so the bathroom doesn't get flooded). We also had an issue with low pressure in the shower but the staff was quickly to fix it.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The room was clean and the staff are accommodating
Cons: They don't give complimentary toiletries aside from soap
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Family owned hotel with only 6 rooms. Very simple but also very clean. Extremely nice and helpful staff (mostly from the owners family). Good food. Good Snorkling area right in front of the rooms (5m), with corals, many fishes, few turtles and we even saw a huge whale shark. The whale sharks watching is only 3 minutes away.
Cons: The equipment in the rooms is very basic.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: We love the view!The sound of the waves is very relaxing and keeps your mind at peace. The place made our vacation so stress free and it's a little bit sad that we have to part with it. The staff are friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay!
Cons: Nothing whatsoever. It's value for money
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Staff was very accommodating & friendly. Room rates are affordable & they serve food as well, you dont have to go out of the resort to dine.

4.5 Okay
Pros: the idea of the attic
Cons: the attic was HOT! it was never indicated that the attic was HOT! I understand it was a fan room.. but it was HOT! the bathroom was supposed to be included for the room rate! but what i got was just a sink and if we had to take a shower we had to fall in line downstairs.. very disappointed! i know the rate was good but we dis not deserve that room amenities that bad!...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: its easy to locate, only along the highway, just say the name and everyone will drop you there..
8.0 Excellent
Pros: What you see is what you get. It's cheap, clean and comfortable place to stay. I was happy learning there's a 'Seventh-day Adventist Church' near it. Have I known earlier, I should have brought a dress and extend my stay to attend congregation that Saturday. Anyway, the Hotel should mention it in the description about the church at the very least. It would have been nice if they have informed us in advance that there'll be a 'Summer Madness' event during our stay but we were clueless, as a result, we couldn't adjust our schedule anymore and was unable to join and enjoy the event.
Cons: The downside is the service they offer for the tour. My sister and I, booked a 'Swimming with Whale Sharks' tour which the Pension House offers saying it is a special rate. We took it with a Russian we met on the tour and we're disappointed with the service. The guide is not quick on his feet. We actually waited for 2 hours before we eventually secured a priority number. Furthermore, the contact no. stipulated in this page is 'Incorrect'. When we lost our guide, it was hard contacting the reception to help us locate him from the crowd. I think the guide is new; when we also took the 'Aguinid Falls' tour, we got lost. He doesn't seem to be aware of the locations. Moreover, I am disappointed with the cost of the tour. We paid 500 each for Aguinid falls which I think is not quite far from the Pension House and won't cost much for the fuel. There was another falls near Aguinid, he should have taken us there since the tour took only like more than an hour for a 500/head service. I was told by the locals, there's a 5-minute drive falls near Aguinid. And I learned from the Brgy. Counselor that there's cheaper services offered than that offered by Hotels. I learned my lesson then. So for future travelers in Oslob, when in comes to tours, might as well consider researching for cheaper services or a day tour outside of the services offered by Hotels. You might be able to haggle and score a cheaper tour with various locations on one tour.
7.0 Good
Pros: Great location, close to the market and with beach view, only drawback is they do not provide a free breakfast.
Cons: Breakfast should be included in the price
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner was so helpful and lovely. We had great time there. Really enjoyable.
7.5 Good
Pros: The owners was very helpful! If you are going to see the whale sharks stay here because they have the same price as everyone else but they have got their **** covered so you will be one of the first in line! They will drive you and make sure you feel good! They have local tips on where to go and when to go which is very helpful. Large portions for breakfast for 100-105 p
Cons: The pillows was very thin and not so comfy. The restroom smelled a pit and it seemed as somebody had smoked in the room before we visited.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wilma who runs the place is very lovely and knows anything you may possibly need. She makes great coffee, is very nice to talk with, and really looks after you. The location is great, the Ceres bus will drop you off right outside if you tell them you’re staying at this property. Or if not it’s a quick walk (or tricycle) back up the road from Oslob. It’s a really great place, great vibe to the town of Oslob too. It didn’t seem to be swarming with tourists which is a big positive compared to staying in a town like Moalboal for example. Although I’m sure the location of the hotel slightly away from the centre helped this.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: location is decent but the staff is AWESOME! the couple who run the hostel were holding our bags and taking pictures of us while swimming with sharks... felt like family when u are traveling! there was a great kid at the place as well, he was from bohol, super friendly and willing to do whatever was needed.
Cons: the fact the i was the only one at the hostel, but i went after easter so cant blame the place
4.5 Okay
Cons: No soap and towels in the room, you have ask for it as well as if you shower after 9:00pm you have to let them know because they turn off the water pressure at night.

7.0 Good

6.8 Good

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice and helpfull personal, great pool, good restaurante, close to the city, possibility to enter beach
8.0 Excellent
Pros: There are stairs to access the sea just back from the hotel, which is really nice that we can enjoy swimming in 1 sec out of the room. Moreover, the small pool inside the hotel could let us quick enjoy the water but not getting sands. The restaurant inside the hotel brings good food! I hope I could get one more Banana shake :) When we check out and take the bus, there is a staff helps us stop the bus under the big sun, we are so thankful for that!
Cons: I think is better to provide the hairdryer as a basic since the hotel is way pretty luxury. I'm surprised the hairdryer needs extra charges, though is a small amount but that makes me feel awkward. :) the WIFI is not stable both in the room and around the poll, perhaps is a strategy to avoid us keep using phones?!
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The place is on the ocean and has a pool,
Cons: The location is terrible, very far from the whale shark activity and the staff couldn’t advise of anything else to do in the area. I paid for a room for 4 people and they only offered breakfast to 2 we had to pay for the rest. The hotel restaurant very poor. I book ocean view room there was NO ocean view from the room. Not a good place to stay I’m aftaid

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great position, excellent food, helpful and friendly staff.
Cons: Shower pressure was terrible, noisy aircon, noisy and busy road behind hotel.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: I love the quaint Cape Cod ambience. Facilities were very basic but served it's purpose. Location is perfect for those who want to have an early start for the whale shark watching. My friends loved my pictures and made a lot of inquiries about it. The rooms were freshly renovated just before we arrived. Staff were very efficient and helpful in moving our stuff to the other room when we had to give up one room. They called the owner about our concerns with the paint smell right away.
Cons: We booked 4 rooms but the paint smell in one of the rooms was unbearable. The owner was gracious enough to give us a full refund for that since we had to squeeze into the remaining 3 rooms. There is also a pig farm nearby that the smell also wafts into the area...depending on the wind direction. WiFi and mobile data are still a little spotty but that would have to be because of the networks.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Good location and environment.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff , the contemporary design
Cons: I would have given it a higher rating except the really low water pressure, the water from the shower was practically dripping and we had 4 rooms and it was the same on all rooms. Somebody came to fix the problem but never made a difference.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Good view
Cons: No hot water to shower .
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were absolutely perfect from the start, I’ve stayed at a few places in The Philippines and they far exceed the service. The room was nice and had a beautiful view of the sea. The whale shark tour was organised through the hotel and got us fast tracked to the one of the first boats which was great considering how many people were waiting on the shore.
Cons: On my second night the electricity was gone and there was a very loud generator there which was disappointing but this appears to be common throughout the country. Some members of our group weren’t happy with the food.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: Not very hygienic. Hairs everywhere Food was not always available

Overview Reviews
Located in Oslob, Angler's Hub & Resort is a 2-minute drive from Oslob Church and 7 minutes from Tumalog Falls. Free self parking is available onsite.
3.0 Mediocre
Cons: Facilities are so-so, we ok with it. But being charged for the whole day for keeping bag pack just for couples hours without us being notified? That's definitely we classify under "Black List" place to stay.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great place to stay. They will organize all of your activities and even boat trips to Bohol. They were really helpful and friendly whenever we talked to them. Especially liked how Kent took us to see the Whale sharks and did everything so we basically didn't have to stand in any lines.
Cons: Nothing to complain about.
7.0 Good
Pros: Receptionist are very helpful. We booked our tickets for whale shark watching and boat to Bohol island here.
Cons: Water stop coming out sometimes.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: In terms of service and helpfulness, this is hands down one of the best places I’ve stayed at. Ken is not only happy to help, he goes above and beyond his duty of care. Two days after checking out, we needed some help in terms of transportation and he jumped on the task immediately. Having said all these, he never ever once made us feel obligated to take on any of his additional offerings in the resort. It was always up to us without any pressure from him. We went on a whaleshark tour, and he was there to take care of all the logistics from the beginning towards the end, despite not being part of the activity. Highly recommended, you will not regret staying here!
Cons: Water supply problem in the bathroom.
6.8 Good
Pros: Location is convenient
Cons: Wifi is worse
4.3 Okay
Pros: I thought expensive for what was a very basic room no TV shower bad but the host was a nice guy and helpful
Cons: Lots
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The staffs are rlly helpful and friendly, they took us for the first boat to watch whale shark!
Cons: The room’s shower water sometime doesn’t work
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The owner and the staff were excellent and very nice. The unit was comfortable, the shower was clean and there were NO ROOSTERS waking us up at all hours, which is very common. Oslob is a small, developing town and is a 10p (20 cents), 5 minute trike ride to town.
Cons: A mini-fridge and flat screen would be good. There is no wi-fi and they are working on this. There is no beach. Oslob is a 4-5 hour bus ride from Cebu on an aircon bus.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The Price is right, the staff and vibe are great, the outlook and air con are lovely. Its a short tricycle ride to town and 15 minutes to the whale sharks yet you feel like you have the area to yourself. Very relaxing. Being new to Cebu and sceptical of being misled I couldn't fault the managers advise, recommendations and information on everything we did. Honest, genuine and knowledgeable . Thanks.
Cons: There was nothing that I didn't like. I expected something a little more elegant as being my first visit to the Philippines, I didn't know what to expect but it was certainly adequate and the position, hosts and atmosphere you can't fault I would certainly stay here again. .

Pros: Close to whaleshark site, good host, clean, overall it is a good place to stay.
Cons: The sharee bathroom/ comfortroom is shared by multiple rooms
6.8 Good
Cons: This place is run by a psychotic dog. The dog sits on the reception counter as you arrive and the woman behind the counter tries to check you in around the dog. The woman carries the dog with her when she gets up from the counter and if she doesn't the dog barks in an uncontrollable and vicious way. It is impossible to have a conversation with the woman when the dog goes into one of it's manic barking frenzies, it is totally terrifying and bizarre that the woman has allowed this to happen. I hated my whole time in the Philippines for so many reasons. Trying to get into and out of this hotel without encountering the mad dog was just another reason to stay away.

Cons: WiFi didn’t work and the shared bathroom wasn’t too clean. The staff aren’t very friendly, don’t think we saw them smile once and only gave us some advise about the whale sharks when we asked lots of questions! Don’t arrive to Tan-Awan early, there is absolutely nothing to do here and very few restaurants. Glad we were just here for a very quick stay.
6.3 Good
Pros: It’s so close to the oslob whaleshark
Cons: We were so restless on the night we checked in as there was blackout all over the barangay. The host explained that no notice was announced. Terrible experience! We didn’t sleep and we were so tired on the next day on the whale shark activity.
