We arrived to Malapascua late in the evening and didn't have any clue where to stay. Luckily we found the Tepanee Beach Resort which situated right next to the beach where the boat took us to. Very decently priced hotel that could easily do its job as a honeymoon resort. Easy-going and relaxed venue with beautiful cottages right next to... More

I spent 5 days in this beautiful and spotless resort with its lovely owner couple Andrea and Silvia. The setting of the place is amazing with most bungalows overlooking either the small bay or the open sea and with its small but beautiful private beach. The rooms are convenient and very clean with a private balcony each. I went for... More

Malapascua is 2hrs drive plus a boat ride from Cebu City. Front of the resort is the docking area of the bancas, not so good for swimming and the back side of the resort have its own beach but i will not recommend for swimming either due to the fact that its right next to the cemetery. For swimming better... More

Had a lovely 3 day stay at this resort. Stayed in the most expensive accommodation which is the deluxe aircon cottage. I'm a local and have been to a lot of the good beaches and resorts in the Philippines so I'm a bit more exacting of "views". The view from the Deluxe AC cottages is great but not completely spectacular.... More

This basic resort is just five minutes walking from Thresher Sharks Diving, probably the best managed diving operation in the island. The rooms are clean, the mattresses are comfortable and the air-con works pretty well. Also, wifi is free and available in most of rooms. The bungalows by the sea are the most desirable, since they offer a great view,... More

My partner at I stayed at Tepanee for 5 nights in February. Whilst the resort was in a lovely location, the service was very poor and the staff were quite unhelpful. We stayed in a deluxe beach front cabana which was the most expensive (but well situated) accommodation. We found on arrival that our porch lights, and bathroom light wasn't... More

The cottages are so nice. A/C and a fan, refrigerator, safe and a very nice deck which is so nice to sit on in the evening and watching the water and boats go by. The value here is terrific. The staff is very nice and efficient.

It had a lovely bathroom/shower room and a mini bar fridge, safe and a lot of storage space. Also, the bed was very comfortable and the air con was much appreciated. But it was the... More

Fantastic place to stay on a beautiful island. I was there with my girlfriend about a year ago, and we were supposed to travel to different islands after our stay at Malapascua. But we decided to stay on this resort through out our vacation. The service is wonderful. The staff and the italian owners are very nice people, who invited... More
