              Best dive center and accommodation on Malapascua ”

              This is on of the only places on the island that is own by locals. The hotel is very cozy and new. Rooms are nice and clean. Our room had one queen size bed and one twin bed. We also had plenty of space for our clothes. Location is on the beach and close to the good restaurants. We did 7 dives with Mabuhay and we didn’t regret it. The staff is really friendly and every night the staff and guests have a beer or soda together. We are going back in 2 weeks to do some more diving and we will be staying at Mabuhay again.

              Lovely little bungalows”

              We stayed here whilst diving on Malapascua. It’s right next to most of the dive shops and some of the restaurants. The food is ok and reasonably priced. Rooms were big, nice beds, air con and a little porch which is useful for drying things after diving. Water in the shower is warm but salty, but that didn’t both us. Definitely would recommend.

              I was not best impressed”

              I had to change resort, started at Malapascua Garden Resort MGR which was much better but also more expensive (I extended my stay and their were fully booked then). Here at Mabuhay the shower was dirty with bird shit or something and very little water pressure, the hot water was not working at first. Only 2 electrical outlets and no adapter at reception (all the ones they have were given to other guests already and they don’t have enough for all). Also the air con is super noisy running at night and no blinds nor curtains on window so difficult to sleep. The man who appears the manager (father of the family I guess) never smile and seems to not give a shit, not very nice feeling for me overall I prefer spending a little more for better accommodation especially at Malapascua were facilities are limited due to size of the island. To finish on a good note, the bed was ok and the breakfast was good. The view from the restaurant right on bounty beach is ideal location also. finally, if you want to dive do check out French Kiss Divers ok Logon beach (west side) and they are opening a shop on bounty beach soon, not just cause I am French myself, but it is a very safe and professional dive shop. I dive everywhere and I was very impressed. Have a good holiday all!! :))

              Clean room. Cold AC. Location is a beach front. Food is pricey in the hotel. If you want an easy access to boats going to Maya and a walking distance to Malapascua Market, this is one of the best hotels. Thank you, Frida and the rest of the staffs.

              Location is great... some staff are not happy, no please or thank you. Others are great. Good is hot and miss.. they forget things, undercooked rice, is a bit like faulty towers. It is a pity the allow smoking there, especially in the attached dive shop. A clean air area, but smoking all the time. The allow smoking on the dive do at, but provide no ash trays, so the smokers throw their butts in the ocean. Disgusting
