We dived with Blue Water as they offered the cheapest Thresher shark dive we were quoted on the island. Very poor equipment, very badly led dives, extremely rude dive master who was quite aggressive with several people on our boat who voiced issues around safety. Unbelievable really. The rooms are also grotty and much worse than other options nearby. If...

I was GRANDPAcking in Malapascua for 11 nights. Accommodation in The Philippines is, generally, poor value for money. Everywhere. Malapascua is no exception. On the internet, you will find it hard to find anywhere on the beachfront for less than PHP1,500 per night. I booked one of the few beachfront properties that I could find and afford: a Fan Room...

I didn't stay here but I was looking for a place to dive. I ended up choosing this place because they was going to Gato Island on that day. Diving price is quite reasonable here and you can try asking for discount. Dive leader was quite experience but doesn't know the correct name of fish (maybe just because it's in...

We stayed there for 6 nights, the room was good and the service was fine. But is not advisable to go diving with them. I dived with them once and regretted it, the equipment is in poor condition, the dive master was very unfriendly and impatient. Defenetliy not go back to dive with them.

We decided to chill at Malapascua Island after our trip Kalanggaman Islet. We ordered Fruit shakes and Fruit Salad, they were average restaurant price. Fruit is depending on the availability so the Fruit Salad was only Mango and Banana in a Milk with Ice.

Quite a nice place in front of the beach and close to dive clubs... The price includes breakfast which is quite complete and good. The staff is so kind, the rooms are nice for filipino standards and I think it is located in a really good place to go explore the island, go diving or snorkeling. Also, it is "chicken...

We stayed 3 nights there, we got a discount on a double room. for the price we paid, the room is ok but nothing special. Everything should be renovated, rusty shower head, door lock should be fixed... That's a real pity because the location is nice on the beach and the even have a big swimming pool. with more maintenance...

We stayed at this resort for 5 nights last week. Got a good price for one of the wee rooms at the back of the resort with breakfast included.
