We arrived on malapascua during festival time and struggled to find somewhere affordable. After spending the first night somewhere overpriced we found a large twin room at slam. It was very clean and well maintained and the staff were friendly. Safe deposit in the room was handy. The farmers breakfast in the restaurant was excellent. I'd stay again.

I just stayed 13 nights at Slam's. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was ok, nothing special. Laundry worked fine. I wasn't too bothered about roosters making noise as the noise from AC unit covered them. Wifi worked only on couple of days. I didn't spent too much time in the hotel area as I did about 3-4 dives a day.

Pros: 1) very friendly down to earth simple kind hearted staff. 2) it's not at the beach, but it doesn't matter. The beach is one minute walk shared by all hotels. 3) rooms are very spacious and can accommodate up to one couple and two young children on two double beds available in every room. 4) food and drinks prices...

I really think that some of the reviews for this place are a little harsh...or maybe things have just improved... Slams is in a very convenient location, right next to the port from Maya. The room was clean, large, and had everything I needed. There was no TV, but for me that was not a problem. Each room has a... More

We were there on December and the wether wasn't so good- it was rainy, but for diving it's ok if you have a proper clothes to be on a boat. So, we choose a standard room and were given room 14. Avoid this room if you are sensitive to sleep, because: 1.the room has build-in aircon and it works like... More

Slams is a nice chill place. The staff are very hardworking and went out of there way to make sure I got what I needed. Therefore I applaud them for that. They make great sandwiches and have a delicious breakfast menu. Be prepared for the flies but that is everywhere you go. Perhaps Slams could consider investing in some light... More
