I traveled solo to do some diving and stayed here for 6 nights. This hotel is conveniently located close to the ferry drop off. It is also very close to a number of dive shops. The bed is comfortable even with just a fan but you have to keep the window open at night to keep cool air circulating. The... More

Staff are really unhelpful here and as a result we stayed down the beach at legends resort, who were far more accommodating, and better value. Upon arriving we found that the internet was down, and as a result they could not process our booking. Although we had a screen shot of our prices from agoda, they refused to accept and... More

Thank you for posting a review about our place. We are glad that you find a place more accommodating for you stay in Malapascua. First: Upon arrival there was no internet to process you booking. Since the typhoon last November 8 the signal is on and off. And that is for the whole Island. If no internet in our place... More

Room was big, good, clean and had the standard, bed was absolutely terrible, 6 inch foam mattress, luckily there were two double beds in the room so we put the other mattress on top, 12 inches of foam mattress is better than 6. We had complimentary breakfast for the 3 days we were there, only had it once, not very... More

I stayed at Slam's with a dive group. There is nothing inherently WRONG with the facility, it just lacks polish and finish, and could easily be improved. The rooms in the new wing are spacious and the beds comfortable. Breakfast orders were always a challenge, with the staff not REALLY understanding English, and most things had to be asked for,...

We loved our stay at SLAM's. The room was very clean and the stuff friendly and helpful. The food at restaurant was also really good. Try the pancakes for breakfast! The location is also excellent, there are dive shops next to it and it's 20 meters to the beach. We would definitely go back.

Slam's Garden is a mid-range property according to Southeast Asia standards and a basic bargain property based on Western standards. As previously mentioned, this is not an oceanfront property. Unless that was the sole purpose of your travel, then the 3 min walk around the corner is worth the savings, especially if you are diving. After traveling through Thailand, Malaysia... More

This is my second time there. This time we stayed in the new wing and the rooms are spacious. Again, I love the location as it is near one of the villages and it is much quieter on this side of the island. However, the service this time wasn't very friendly. It is a little more efficient as now the... More

We stayed at Slam's because it is near DiveLink. The rooms are clean and spacious(with balcony)-where we had our gears hanged to dry. Stayed at the 2nd floor (only 2 floors). We had free breakfast and it was average. They had only 4 guests, my partner and I and 2 koreans. So they attended to our needs, specially when we... More

Nice and comfy expensive but worth every dime! Food is great, staff is shy but accommodating, some of them needs to be reiterated regarding customer service. A little improvement will make this resort worth staying.

I stayed with a dive buddy at Slam's from 30JULY to 5AUG. He was a repeat customer. I got a basic aircon room for about $60 a night. They have fan rooms for half as much. I only really needed the AC a couple of times due to it being the rainy season. Owners Leizel and Antonio were at the... More
