No beach view

Posted Nov 28, 2017
I booked this place thinking (from the pics ) that it had a beach front. Nope they didn't. The picture was misleading. The staff were very nice and accommodating though.

Backpackers Paradise

Posted Nov 27, 2017
If you've decided to travel the world....Firstly, YOU'RE A ROCKSTAR. Secondly, I would recommend this hotel to you. The hotel provides everything you need and is literally in the backyard of town. Convienviently, located beside a dive shop - where I spent most of my time - the 4 AM wake-up calls to see the Thresher Shark weren't too painful. There is a price increase if you want 'Air Conditioning', so to stay cool I stuck by the pool. The staff are uniquely funny and super helpful. One dude (name left my head) had a few great one-liners about the slow internet was which made my day. Internet on the island is very slow, so this was not the fault of the hotels. Overall, this place is perfect for you backpackers and divers looking to spend a few days on the Malapascua island. Advice for divers - have your Advanced Certification if you want to see those amazing Thresher Sharks. Until next time!

OK room, so-so location, surcharges

Posted Sep 4, 2017 on Hotels
We are seasoned Philippines travellers and value air conditioning. We paid extra for a triple deluxe room even though a double deluxe has identical size and setup (2 queen beds) and costs $7 less, because the website didn't show the double room had air conditioning (which it actually has). The second day the manager asked us extra because we were 2 couples, stating that we booked only for 2 persons. On the website the price for 2 or 4 people is exactly the same. After a very loud and unpleasant dispute with the manager we refused to pay the requested extra charge. We received only 2 free breakfasts instead of 4. Signs posted all over the property advise guests of ridiculous surcharges for lots of things that are free in other properties including a 500 Pesos cork fee for bringing in your own beverages. The unpleasant interaction with the manager ruined our vacation here and consequently we do not recommend that you stay here!

The only thing that I have to complain is that I book for a room with partial view on the beach... and there was actually only tree and the pool that I could see. But otherwise I enjoy my stay.

Very Relaxing Holiday

Posted Jan 10, 2017
Pros: Bedroom is extremely clean, although a bathroom is rather small. The hotel has a good size of the swimming pool and it was quiet most of the time.
Cons: Having a few hunger rails in the bathroom might have been very useful in order to dry laundry.
Location: Since the island is very small, peaceful and quiet, it is one of the best places to relax if you are not an active diver.
Members of staff in the hotel are very friendly, who kindly answered a lot of questions of mine about local food, stores as well as local people. Malapascua is such a small island that you will get to know local people, tourists and divers after spending for a couple of days. Local food is extremely tasty and unbelievably cheap.
