10.0 Excellent
Pros: The very warm welcome and Stardust!
Cons: Nothing.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing facilities - tennis courts, well equipped gym, swimming pool, clean private beach. Stayed in garden villa which was a beautiful room to lounge around in.
Cons: As it's a resort, it has all the usual advantages (beautiful surroundings, great facilities) & disadvantages...it's not really walking distance from town. Food & drink is overpriced compared to local average (~400PHP main meal, 150PHP beer) but not as horribly expensive as other resorts.
7.0 Good
Pros: friendly and accommodating staff
Cons: checked-in to our room an hour late , got to the resort at around 2:20 got in our room at 3:30 bathroom needs improvement in cleanliness - sinks were slimy/floor was dirty and a stool to put your toiletries on, really! the resort needs to re-think their resort menu , breakfast included , its the same item everyday
7.0 Good
Pros: - the private pool in the Garden villa - perfect for honeymooners - staff are well trained - very high level
Cons: - nothing to do around. We appreciated how calm the resort was but we got bored after 2 days. - the hotel makes you believe that the "city" is far and suggests to call a tricycle for you. They charge 200 pesos (4 min drive). When we got out on our own, we paid 20. I'm not sure why the hotel does this anyways. We want to reassure everyone- go our on your own, it's safe and cheap. Also, very cheap to eat in town (why limit yourself to the hotel restaurant?). - Activities and day trips are too expensive. Very disappointing. - although this is not the hotel's fault, the weather was coudy and rainy when we stayed. We could not enjoy the water activities included in our package (kayak + paddle) and the hotel did not have anything else to offer. - we asked the hotel to leave 1 day earlier because we were really bored and had nothing to do - they had nothing to offer. - we booked the room months in advance. When we got there, we saw that the rooms were half the price - maintenance: too many works going on in the hotel - too noisy and too many workers on site - we had to change our villa because the bathroom's door could not be closed. The staff was very helpful and helped us move on the second day but still - what a waste of time. To conclude, it was a dream stay for our honeymoon, but too expensive at the end of the day
6.7 Good
Pros: Friendly and accommodating staff Spacious room Quiet and not crowded resort
Cons: Arrived at resort 2:20 got keys to our room at 3:30 Bathroom needs improvement in cleanliness- sinks were slimy/floor was dirty and a stool to put your toiletries, really? Poolside was dangerous for slip and fall, materials used are nice but not appropriate for pool side Food was okay but does not meet 5star hotel criteria Btw, got pricked by a name plate left under bed covers, was going to report but somebody took nameplate from bedside table Again waited a day and an hour before the Karaoke was being set up
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Frankly there is little to fault. We opted for the Ocean View Suite: a very generously sized room with a sweeping view of the pool, beach and sea. The room had everything you would expect. Aircon worked to perfection. The bed and especially the mattress was better than anything before. Every day turn down service provides additionally delicious home baked oat meal cookies. Staff were all precious: smiles and friendly welcoming greetings awaited us everywhere. A nice additional surprise is the restaurant. Expect a good offering of flavorful dishes with local roots but for those who are in a more global mindset international offerings complete the listing. The wine list is excellent. And then the staff - the hotel employs a large number of people but we found them to be without any exception ambassadors of Visayan hospitality. During our stay we were especially pampered by Mark, Paul, Peter and Julius. Peter arranged crab for us off the menu on request succulently prepared local style. It was exquisite. The hotel provides many activities. We hopped on a speed boat to Malapascua under the care of Simuel and Euste and were pampered from beginning to end by these robust seamen. This hotel falls into the ‘sure-to-return-category’.
Cons: One small thing. The massage area was mosquito infested. Not a good situation when lying down half naked. I ended up stung several times and somehow Cebuano mosquitoes have nasty bites. Easy to remedy though.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Everything was perfect

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was third stay at Tepanee Beach Resort .... still great place to be. Has grown over the years but still keep it's intimate and quiet character. We did not use the new gym and jaccuzi, so can not comment on this. Ocean view cottage's are great.... waking up with view on the ocean... sleeping in sound of waves... cottages are well equipped and enough space. Lights in bathroom are a bit low, but is more detail. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is of nice quality - and new buffet style breakfast is nice enhancement. Overall great place to relax, and we will come back a fourth time :)
Cons: small details such as dim light in bathroom and one need to be fit enough to climb up and down to rooms :)

7.0 Good
Pros: Beach Close, bathroom.
Cons: Wifi. Both day they started to clean at 8am the room next to us, which ended up being our alarm. Rooms very limited for the price.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is amazing, the breakfast 5 stars and the Cottages are a dream!!! Really advise everyone, who comes to Malapascua, to stay here!
Cons: Just one small advise: They should inform better, during the booking about the difference location of the "Superior Cottages" as for the same price, you can get completely different ones in quality terms, as in our case; one looking at a restaurant with te AC not functioning properly and after we change, for one looking at the sea.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: one of the best resorts in malapascua. no regrets on this hotel. the location is good. considering that we were on an island of malapascua, i dont mind that there is no tv inside the room, or the running water is salty and you get to pay p20 for a refill of mineral water (1liter). Slams is a good deal considering its price, amenities and very nice staff. upon check in, we were given an overflowing welcome drinks. our rooms are clean and comfy. my room is a family room, 2nd fl, facing the pool, with superb AC. it has great view and have a mini sala/ terrace, for smoking or drying your wet suits. they provide toiletries, too. the free plated breakfast that goes with our accom, have a generous serving plus the drink that goes with it. they have good options for breakfast and its drink. the swimming pool is well-maintained and i like it's depth (good for diving practice and for swimming). actually, the resort itself is always clean. staff walk barefoot at the cafe, wherein, guests also follow suit even if it's not required. they have darts and tv at the cafe. the dogs are all sooo cute, especially Cookie. most importantly, you will feel the warmth and hospitality of the staff. no wonder, guests are also nice. good vibes flows in Slams. i highly recommend Slams! more power!
7.9 Good
Cons: The bathroom could be more cleaned...
7.5 Good
Pros: The staff are pleasant to talk to. The place is clean and within a walking distance to sea transport.
Cons: The water in the shower and faucet is a bit salty
5.4 Okay
Cons: Our room had bed bugs and my girlfriend and I have been bitten badly as a result. We requested to move rooms but the staff insisted they change the sheets instead-we tried to explain this would make no difference but they were unable to understand. this room is a health hazard and we are not very happy. It is a shame because other than the bed bugs (cleanliness) of our room we were happy with the place

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Right across the road from the markets, attentive staff, rooms and property clean & tidy. Was very impressed with how they recycle their plastic bottles, turning them into pot plants or filling them with sand and making garden borders. Relaxed atmosphere, secure also.
Cons: If you're not into hearing local karaoke then you may not like it. However we enjoyed it. Not beachfront if that's what you're after but only a 3 minute walk away.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Good location. There is a market in front of the resort where you can grab a meal and fruits.
Cons: Everything is worth the price.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location it's in front of restaurants and market, 5 min to public beach and port area.
Cons: WiFi is slow and ac not.much cooling.the room
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Easy to get to, a 5/6 minute walk from the beach. The room was very clean and spacious, with a good sized balcony and the bed was a great size. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and there is a water refill at the desk for relatively little money.
Cons: The location is central and close to a late night eating/karaoke area which means there’s always some noise until 10 or 11pm. There is a party on the island regularly, although it does move location it can be heard from here quite often, not great if you’re on an early dive.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Friendly staff, comfortable beds. Great if you are looking for the ”local” experience.
Cons: Ants in the bathroom, loud noises from a karaokebar close by, far from everything except the local marker/square (which is supersmall and smells like bbq - if you want to live like a true filipino this is the place). We turned our clothes in for a wash and they smelled worse after than when we turned them in. Almost every restaurant is at the beach so you have to walk for about 15/20 min in all the small alleys which are full of stray dogs etc to get there. So in hindsight we should have stayed at the beach. But the staff tried the best they could to make it work!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very convenient location to diving shop, clean room and nice breakfast
Cons: Dirty environment around the hotel
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Right next to the market for cheap and good meals. 5 min walk to the beach
6.7 Good
Pros: Classic room Beds were okay Cute hotel Good place to see the Sharks
Cons: The AC was right next to my legs ..... just horrible I was 5 cm next to it. I had to move one of the bed in the other side. And the other Bed was in 1 meter .... I had to switch off the AC many times during the night.

4.6 Okay
Pros: The pool was nice when it was not being used to train divers.
Cons: The dorm rooms were cramped and not suited to guests who were not diving. The 14-bed dorm was noisy from 3 am with guests getting up to dive. The roosters and dogs directly behind the dorm were crowing and barking before the sun rose. The sheets were clean but the surrounds of the beds and walls were dirty. Staff were talking badly about the guests in the restaurant. Do not expect this to be a resort experience if you stay in the dorm. The 'welcome meeting'/drivers sales pitch was late to start, long and unnecessary.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very nice staff, always keen to help you. Restaurant is great. We loved the relaxed vibe at the resort and it’s filled with passionnate (new) divers.
Cons: One night the aircon broke down and we couldnt contact any staff member, we slept in a 35degrees dorm which was impossible. But the next morning they fixed it asap.
9.7 Excellent
Pros: Staff were all very pleasant and very customer oriented. Food was good and the staff were great in restaurant .Location on the water is nice. Nice private beach.Security was very good as well. I would definitely stay there again.
Cons: A minor complaint is that we wi fi. Signal in the rooms could be better, I know it's a remote spot and wifi can't be expected to be always good. No real complaints about Thresher Cove
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Very good location with private sandy beach, easy access to diving. Perfect for relaxing. Nice staff, very friendly and helpful.

Pros: We had a beautiful beach cabana with shared bathroom. We loved everything about it. The dive boat and dive crew we very professional with the best service I’ve ever had. Delicious food en very friendly staff and management. We will definitely be back!
7.9 Good
Pros: It couldn’t have been more pretty on the beach sat watching the waves from the front porch. The staff were incredibly sweet and the hotel grounds were set in a stunning secluded bay in a quiet corner of the island.
Cons: Unfortunately if would taken someone a little tougher than me to stay longer in the small room bed with that intense heat without air con. The humidity was really high so every thing was damp and sticky. I’m sure it’s fine in the drier heat later on in the season Needed a mozzie net to have the door open for extra air.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was perfect, I recommend this resort , the personal are very welcoming and the pool and a private beach with a unique sunrise are the best! I will comeback! The food at the restaurant is delicious

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Josephine the host will treat you like family. Food is excellent very tasty. She will take you to Dans Dive the cheapest and best on the island. I seriously recommend this hotel you will be treated like family
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The resort grounds were gorgeous! Walking through the paths lined with tropical plants and flowers, I felt so at peace. The resort also has access to its own private beach, which I could see from my balcony. The resort staff were so warm and hospitable. I travelled to Malapascua alone and they made me feel so welcome and taken care of. They went out of their way to help me rent a bicycle, provide me with Wi-Fi so I could continue my work, enquire about diving courses and they event dropped me off at the beach when it was time for me to leave the island. Thank you!
Cons: The lighting in my bungalow could have been better. In the day time, even with the light and my open windows, my room was still dim. BUT this may not be the case with the other bungalows.
7.9 Good
Pros: Peaceful and quiet location The room was gorgeous and very spacious Large and very comfortable bed Beautiful garden/nature and views of the ocean Because of our last-minute deal we found it very good value for money
Cons: Our check-in experience was not so good. We had a last-minute booking deal with Booking.com and paid beforehand, but upon arrival the owner tried to put us in a cheaper room or have us pay extra because supposedly the rate was incorrect. Arriving at the room, a dead cockroach lies on the table. We say this to the owner, and clarify we really do not want to be around cockroaches. Owner reassures us that there are none around.. Then when hopping in the shower, what sprints over the floor? A cockroach! And no staff around anymore to help us out. When complaining about this next day, owner blames the previous guests and is very reluctant to provide us bug spray.. The second night we had a gigantic spider in the room (really, enormous) Both nights we had a gecko behind our bed wall making sounds, but again "that is no problem, gecko is an useful animal" -according the owner. Restaurant closes very early (6:30PM) and after 7PM nobody is at the property anymore. Limited breakfast times - which we could not combine with fixed thresher shark diving times.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I had a wonderful stay. The staff was amazing and the owner was so nice. I suffered a laceration to my leg while snorkeling and hit some coral, and the owner went out of her way to tend to my wounds and help me. She arranged my ferry ride to Kalaanggaman island. I would highly recommend. It is very cozy and quiet. The staff go out of their way.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Truly IT-Hotel in Malapascua! If you want to be relaxed and stay in peace, definitely it is the best choice. Our favorite place is the veranda of the restaurant, Calm and cool breeze to the top hill, beautiful ocean view through the leaves, and bright but nice in tree shade. Time goes such slow in this place. Hotel is very quiet and relaxing. Madam and all people are so nice and friendly, feeling like staying at nice home. You can go for a little trail walk to Marmaid Cave and enjoy snorkeling (if you are trained enough) Room is clean and nice beautiful!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff is very warmhearted and the place is vey quite with beautiful beach. The price is good. The room is big and comfortable.
Cons: WiFi signal is not very strong .

Pros: Nice place. Friendly people.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were super friendly, caring and hospitable. The view on the private beach is amazing. Facilities are perfectly clean. The cottages are so beautiful, big rooms, beautiful interior, comfortable, and you really feel like your’re living in an oriental fairytale. Location is good for couples or people who enjoy the quiteness, but your also at the markets and bars etc in a few minutes by walking. We had a wonderful time at mangrove oriental, and we’ll defenitely come back!!!
Cons: Wifi connection is not working in the beach cottages (too far away from the main building). No swimming on the private beach - too shallow water and too many seagrass.

Featured amenities include a business center, dry cleaning/laundry services, and luggage storage. A roundtrip airport shuttle and a ferry terminal shuttle are provided for an additional charge.
7.0 Good
Pros: I liked that it was a bit off where most people were. This made it quiet and not so much people just drinking to get high and busy. It was more laid back and friendly.
Cons: I don't like to be charged for water, but really they have to filter it, and bring it up a couple flights of stars. I can tolerate it. Could have better reefs in the area, but they suffer the results of a typhoon a few years ago.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Location was perfect.
Cons: Low pressure shower, difficult to wash in. Mosquitoes in the room. Breakfast was basic.
7.5 Good
Pros: Their american breakfast and pancakes are so good.
Cons: Kindly inform customers that you're using filtered sea water in the bathroom.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The location is fantastic, just next to the ferry drop off point. The views from the rooms looking east are beautiful. I would recommend getting an air conditioned room. The staff were great and sorted us out a taxi transfer.
Cons: The rooms were pretty basic and we didn’t think the breakfast was great: We asked for the fruit each morning to be told they didn’t have any, but lots of other places on the island had fruit so it seemed like they couldn’t be bothered
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Rooms in the hotel part have a fantastic view! It’s a quirky place but great value.
6.0 Good
Pros: Front beach
Cons: No plug near the bed .
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic location! Beautiful sea view from rooms
5.4 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was decent. watch out for the literal plastic in the smoothies.
Cons: I left my prescription glasses at the front desk with the receptionist at check out, and messaged the hotel 30mins later to say i had left them there and if i could make a payment for them to be posted to my next location in the country- and baring in mind when i was booking the accommodation they replied within a couple of hours- they have not replied at all to my numerous emails regarding this, so in other words keep tight of your belongings because you won't be getting anything back. (such a shame) Also twice!! myself and my partner nearly chocked on plastic that was in the mango shakes.. like how??
7.9 Good
Pros: The hotel was in a great location and the room was clean. Breakfast was nice and personnel not very amiable.
Cons: This property was the first we chose in Malapascua which was surprisingly overpriced and old compared with the Slams Garden Resort we booked after. The location of the second one was good, the facilities were very new and the swimming pool was an extra. This made us feel as if Blue Corals would have ripped us off the double amount of money that Slams charged us. We didn’t even get sea view in Blue Corals so no difference between the hostel views but a big price difference.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Proximity to the beach and just a short walk to the market. Room is clean and they also do daily cleaning. I was in staying the aircon room on the 2nd level so air flow was good Dive shop was just adjacent so was easy to organize. It was also a great crew to go with
Cons: The aircon was too high for me to control so had to always get on a chair but wasnt a big a deal
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff and relaxed atmosphere.
Cons: I have nothing negative to say.
7.5 Good
Pros: Decent hotel with dive shop on Bounty beach for the money. Some amenities are a little outdated; but overall everything functions. They appear to be expanding, so maybe the whole place will get a make over soon. Dive shop gave me a good deal on rentals and guides were good; Roland treated me fairly and was friendly; I think he gave me the best deal in the area for the dives (Did Thresher shark dive twice and saw them! Awesome!). Pay a few bucks more if you want newer accommodations nearby. Their restaurant was also a few pesos cheaper even though their food was just as good as neighbors with beach seating; excellent pizza for Philippines. Pros: Free breakfast even though it's basic, great Wifi signal,Comfortable bed, quiet room even though common areas, dive shop with compressor, and construction immediately outside; aircon worked excellent, water pressure and temp excellent, dining area has nice ambiance in courtyard, location is right on beach, motor bike rental available but can possibly walk whole island or get a lift.
Cons: Cons: Lock on door functioned but was kinda getting loose (felt like property was safe though, even left door unlocked a few times because could see room in common areas), Should wear footwear because pathways have some debris and rocks (I stubbed my toe in the dark one night, seems to happen every time I visit Philippines- I was barefoot, but it's a beach), some peeling/chipping paint in shower stuck to bar of soap, a few ants in bathroom, took them over 36 hours to do my laundry, typical Filippino hang ups in service but we're coaching them! Smokers everywhere on property which I detest.

2.5 Mediocre
Cons: The support for customers is NONE! I booked the hotel and had to contact them for adjustments on my booking. Even if no adjustments could be done a simple “sorry, we cannot change anything in your booking nor attend any of your requests” would be much more appreciated than a no reply on email, Facebook or booking.com.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful, clean, secluded private beach. I've stayed in similar style cottages where I've had lots of problems with mosquitoes and staying cool but no problem at all here :) Public boat dropped us off at Bounty Beach (not the main port marked on Google maps) which is only 5min walk
Cons: Not really a complaint about my stay - had dinner at Amihan (where you have breakfast) which was a bit bland. There is a much better Italian (Angelino's) next door

Cons: N/A
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was third stay at Tepanee Beach Resort .... still great place to be. Has grown over the years but still keep it's intimate and quiet character. We did not use the new gym and jaccuzi, so can not comment on this. Ocean view cottage's are great.... waking up with view on the ocean... sleeping in sound of waves... cottages are well equipped and enough space. Lights in bathroom are a bit low, but is more detail. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is of nice quality - and new buffet style breakfast is nice enhancement. Overall great place to relax, and we will come back a fourth time :)
Cons: small details such as dim light in bathroom and one need to be fit enough to climb up and down to rooms :)

7.0 Good
Pros: Beach Close, bathroom.
Cons: Wifi. Both day they started to clean at 8am the room next to us, which ended up being our alarm. Rooms very limited for the price.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is amazing, the breakfast 5 stars and the Cottages are a dream!!! Really advise everyone, who comes to Malapascua, to stay here!
Cons: Just one small advise: They should inform better, during the booking about the difference location of the "Superior Cottages" as for the same price, you can get completely different ones in quality terms, as in our case; one looking at a restaurant with te AC not functioning properly and after we change, for one looking at the sea.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: They offer a free breakfast for their guests. Clean and nice staff.
7.1 Good
Pros: I liked the bright resort and the little oasis they’ve created. Comfortable room. Good banana pancakes for breakfast.
Cons: The aircon stopped working on our last night and they said they couldn’t fix it, which was disappointing as it was very hot. Our room had a leak that ran inside the cupboard so all our clothes got wet. They didn’t seem too concerned about this when I pointed it out. The lady at reception who served us breakfast most days was not very friendly.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff, big rooms
Cons: If I knew that the owner is German I didn’t book ther ....
7.1 Good
Pros: Clean, nice staff and pretty good location at 8 min walk from the beach where the dive trips go. The value for money is below average though... it's a good hotel, just not worth the price we paid for it.
Cons: The staff could have been a little more present, especially in the evening. Also the pillows were too low so I asked for more, I was told there was none.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice attention, clean and well maintained.
Cons: It is nor very far from the beach line but the access to the hotel is not easy to find. The access from the street to the main entrance could be cleaner just taking care a bit

Cons: Nothing
7.9 Good
Pros: Malapascua can get really noise after night (karaoke especially). MGR was really quite at night so that was perfect for us. The staff there is super helpful and very kind.
Cons: Not a very big deal but the shower are a little salty. That was maybe the only downside.

Cons: Nothing.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing facilities - tennis courts, well equipped gym, swimming pool, clean private beach. Stayed in garden villa which was a beautiful room to lounge around in.
Cons: As it's a resort, it has all the usual advantages (beautiful surroundings, great facilities) & disadvantages...it's not really walking distance from town. Food & drink is overpriced compared to local average (~400PHP main meal, 150PHP beer) but not as horribly expensive as other resorts.
7.0 Good
Pros: friendly and accommodating staff
Cons: checked-in to our room an hour late , got to the resort at around 2:20 got in our room at 3:30 bathroom needs improvement in cleanliness - sinks were slimy/floor was dirty and a stool to put your toiletries on, really! the resort needs to re-think their resort menu , breakfast included , its the same item everyday
7.0 Good
Pros: - the private pool in the Garden villa - perfect for honeymooners - staff are well trained - very high level
Cons: - nothing to do around. We appreciated how calm the resort was but we got bored after 2 days. - the hotel makes you believe that the "city" is far and suggests to call a tricycle for you. They charge 200 pesos (4 min drive). When we got out on our own, we paid 20. I'm not sure why the hotel does this anyways. We want to reassure everyone- go our on your own, it's safe and cheap. Also, very cheap to eat in town (why limit yourself to the hotel restaurant?). - Activities and day trips are too expensive. Very disappointing. - although this is not the hotel's fault, the weather was coudy and rainy when we stayed. We could not enjoy the water activities included in our package (kayak + paddle) and the hotel did not have anything else to offer. - we asked the hotel to leave 1 day earlier because we were really bored and had nothing to do - they had nothing to offer. - we booked the room months in advance. When we got there, we saw that the rooms were half the price - maintenance: too many works going on in the hotel - too noisy and too many workers on site - we had to change our villa because the bathroom's door could not be closed. The staff was very helpful and helped us move on the second day but still - what a waste of time. To conclude, it was a dream stay for our honeymoon, but too expensive at the end of the day
6.7 Good
Pros: Friendly and accommodating staff Spacious room Quiet and not crowded resort
Cons: Arrived at resort 2:20 got keys to our room at 3:30 Bathroom needs improvement in cleanliness- sinks were slimy/floor was dirty and a stool to put your toiletries, really? Poolside was dangerous for slip and fall, materials used are nice but not appropriate for pool side Food was okay but does not meet 5star hotel criteria Btw, got pricked by a name plate left under bed covers, was going to report but somebody took nameplate from bedside table Again waited a day and an hour before the Karaoke was being set up
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Frankly there is little to fault. We opted for the Ocean View Suite: a very generously sized room with a sweeping view of the pool, beach and sea. The room had everything you would expect. Aircon worked to perfection. The bed and especially the mattress was better than anything before. Every day turn down service provides additionally delicious home baked oat meal cookies. Staff were all precious: smiles and friendly welcoming greetings awaited us everywhere. A nice additional surprise is the restaurant. Expect a good offering of flavorful dishes with local roots but for those who are in a more global mindset international offerings complete the listing. The wine list is excellent. And then the staff - the hotel employs a large number of people but we found them to be without any exception ambassadors of Visayan hospitality. During our stay we were especially pampered by Mark, Paul, Peter and Julius. Peter arranged crab for us off the menu on request succulently prepared local style. It was exquisite. The hotel provides many activities. We hopped on a speed boat to Malapascua under the care of Simuel and Euste and were pampered from beginning to end by these robust seamen. This hotel falls into the ‘sure-to-return-category’.
Cons: One small thing. The massage area was mosquito infested. Not a good situation when lying down half naked. I ended up stung several times and somehow Cebuano mosquitoes have nasty bites. Easy to remedy though.
