Tipolo Beach Resort: Moalboal, Cebu

I found myself back in Moalboal. It seems like it's my new favorite escape from Cebu City. I thought I could just go there and check in Ravenala, my choice of resort in the area, but when I arrived, I was surprised that it was fully booked. So I had to find another place. They recommended Dolphin House, which was also pleasant, but it was also full. So I had to go to Bas Diot more popularly known as Panagsama Beach, to look for a resort. We settled for this one.


Tipolo Beach Resort is actually at the end of the strip of resorts along Panagsama Beach. This beach area has a very relaxed atmosphere. There are a lot of dive resorts, since Moalboal is known for its diving, which is centered in nearby Pescador Island.


By being at the end, Tipolo enjoys solemnity. There are still a lot of resorts beside it, but the native design of this resort sold me to it. We got a room for P1,500 a night, with A/C and twin beds. The deluxe room cost a little more, P1,800, and had a queen sized bed. I found their rooms clean and thus, of good value.


Tipolo Beach Resort has a restaurant in front, the long standing Filling Station. The small restaurant cafe has been there since Moalboal gained fame. It serves wonderful crepes and yogurt.


Tipolo has a small sandy beach below. Tipolo is perched upon a rock, thus, you have to go down to reach the beach. Panagsama has little sand, and reminds me more of Anilao. If you want a beach, you'd be better off in Bas Daku, where Ravenala and Club Serena are.


I was able to walk along the coastline during low tide in the morning. The coral sand stretched further beyond Tipolo. There were several dive boats on the shore, which I thought were blocking the view.


Over-all, Tipolo was very laid back, and much like Moalboal. There aren't a lot of rooms, around 10 only, so the place can get full as well.


If you plan to go to Moalboal and not dive, I'd suggest you go to Bas Daku, where the beaches are wider and the sand finer. But if you end up here in Pangsama Beach, make your way to Tipolo, where you can be guaranteed of a real vacation escape, and enjoy the company of its friendly staff.
