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

Travelled with four friends and stayed there for 4 nights. I wasn't except much since last year typhoon but they managed to rebuild, their tidy room have hot shower, wifi and AC. Only saw one female staff thru out, she's helpful and friendly. Food doesn't take long to serve maybe she took our order the night before. The Dive centre... More

Malapascua is a pretty laid back island. There are many resorts here. Food takes awhile to prepare so order in advance. Expect to wait at least an hour during peak times. Slams is located right beside Dive Link. The only locally owned diveshop in Malapascua. Slams is pretty new (cause it was devastated by Typhoon Yolanda so they built it... More

I would certainly go back here again .... my room had hot water showers and aircon and was well located just back from the beach fronts and a short walk from Thresher Shark Divers on the main Beach. The staff kept it clean and I was very happy with my morning Breakfast with fresh Mango as well! Just next to... More

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
