            Really nice”

            You’ll feel like home. The staff is friendly and the common area is a good place to have a beer and meet new people. Good pool. Food a little expensive but perfect location near the beach and so near to the best restaurant to have breakfast in Malapascua (restaurant with no name and they only serve pancakes and breakfast).

            Diving course exceeded my expertations”

            Amazing staff, Dave Beer was an absolutely first class instructor. I'm so pleased I had my first experience of scuba with him, he build my confidence level up from absolute zero to 90% and that's some achievement. Highly recommend him as an instructor or even for fun dives, the man is a fountain of diving knowledge and real fun as well

            We had a great stay here. The staff is very friendly. It has pool and a nice restaurant with pool table. Good location. The room was good, but we didnt have hot shower and the wifi only works in the restaurant. The only problem we had was that we booked a dive with them and when we wanted to confirm it the told us they were full. They arranged our dive with another company. It was not well organized.

            Price is Right!!! Upgraded to aircon which worked great. Nice pool. Resto is average and will need continuing attention. Diving was very ok very enjoyable and my young one was able to pass open water SSI in 4 days. Ready for fun. Serious con = how I wish the flies could be controlled on Malapasqua Island.

            A lot to be improved”

            Nice owner and staff, we received an email with a lot of info about how to get on the island and we were welcomed on the beach upon arrival. It’ location is not on bounty beach , but just behind it, 100 m behind the front line. BUT as the hotel was destroyed by a typhoon a couple of years ago, it’s is still under construction. The restaurant area wasn’t very welcoming to have breakfast or dinner. The WiFi was very slow and it only works around the reception area. If you are staying there on a Saturday, be aware that there is a Philippine disco on the square just in front of the hotel, and you better participate in it, because the noise travels into the whole resort. It last at least until 3 am. (Unable to sleep, even with earplugs). Dive shop was ok, good dive master, good prices and 5+1 dive.

            Erwin Really 5.6 what were you expecting the Taj Mahal? Normally I do let these reviews go as everyone is entitled to there opinion But I do have to correct some of your untruths . Internet on Malapascua is very painful. It's the Philippines. This is for every resort. As I explained to you, every one is on the island at the mercy of Globe the internet provider. Not just us. As for the fiesta it does not happen every Saturday as you indicate. It is moved around the island Sorry for the inconvenience of local culture. I do hope you find better accommodation next time. But for a 3 start resort I consider us better the 5.6 that really hurt.

            Better options available on the island”

            This place is right next to the main disco/nightclub on the island. This means when there is a party the music can be heard from your room until 1am or later. If you’re there to dive with the Thresher Sharks that dive usually leaves the island at 4:30am. So if you’re unlucky enough to have a shark dive the morning after a party there is little chance you will get any sleep. Plus the food is over priced and not very good. Facilities were what you pay for and nothing special. But there are other options available for similar price that are not next to the outdoor disco.

            Actually I little complicated to sort out the room categories, there are so many. But it is a nice quiet oasis standing out from the morning roosters shouting . 2 minutes walk from the beach and 5 from the food market in the middle of the village. Nice breakfasts and comfortable beds. But what really made my week a great stay was the simple niceness of the very helpful staff. I would have stayed one more week.

            It’s okay, but could be better!”

            You get what you pay for here and we had a pool view room with a fan. The rooms are basic but clean. We had a problem with the shower and were moved. The pool went really cloudy one day, but was treated and filtered so recovered . Breakfast is basic but did the job. WiFi failed on 3 of our 5 days! The worse part was getting the room serviced. Our room wasn’t cleaned in the five days we were there and bins were not emptied despite leaving our key at reception each day! If you ask us to use the bin for toilet paper then I would expect it to be emptied daily! +ve? It’s cheap and only a short walk from the beaches. As I said, you get what you pay for ....
