Everything was worth it. Not to mention, the resort has accommodating owner (Mike) and staff. Mike even arranged our Malapascua Island Tour. Their beach is peaceful and is away from the crowd. I will definitely go back!🤗😊

Aabana beach resort is a relaxed quite smaller resort at the end of the main tourist road of hotels. This means it was quite and peaceful. We visited with a group of 7, Mike the owner was very accommodating and couldn't have done more to assist us. The grounds of this small resort were natural with hammocks throughout. The rooms...

We spent 4 nights at Aabana and it was relaxing after the travelling from Cebu. I personally love Aabana because it's located on the end of the beach, which was very quiet and less crowded. The only downside was the low water pressure shower but it does not really matter.

We stayed 4 nights at Mikes beach resort and had a wonderful time. Our room was really nice and clean and the whole resort is just lovely. You can find different hammocks around and you have beach chairs on their beautiful quiet privat beach. In our opinion Mike has the best value for money on the whole island and we...

Aabana has the best location on Malapascua Island. It is at the quiet end of the beach but is not totally isolated as there are a couple of nice eateries within a two to three minute walk. The beach in front of Aabana is kept very clean and there are loungers for use by Aabana's guests. Our room was large...

Good evening Swansea Girl. Just wondering that there is a room with CR without Showerholder? All Showers have showerholder in all our CR's. What room have you been? So why did you not complained about that to our Housekeeping or manager? We would have repaired it in minutes... Sorry for that. I will inspect all shower rooms tomorrow again to...

All of the staff at Aabana's are excellent and go out of their way to ensure you have a wonderful stay. It's right on the beach and there's plenty of hammocks and sunbeds to relax in. I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Malapascua!

Really liked the place. The houses were really nice, good and serviceminded staff and good location, both to the beach and village. The breakfast could have been better but okey. If I come back to the Island I would go to this place!

We went to mike's place when arriving at malapascua island and asked for a room. The backpacker room was already taken but we could stay at one of the cottages for less than normal price, which was really nice. The resort is on the more quiet part of the beach, but still close to the bars and restaurants. The bungalows...
