Second time staying here, this time for our honeymoon. Beautiful and quiet location, with good privacy. Staff were excellent again and the owner Mike was very caring and helpful and seems to look after his staff well too which is a good sign. Lovely beach right at the front and you can also have meals served there. Short walk, maybe... More

Been there with my wife during a 6month tour across SE Asia. Couldn't imagine a better place for a budget traveller on Malapascua. Great standard, good price, amazing view :) We DO recommend. And we do hope we will be able to return there some time again.

We had an amazing 6 night stay at Mike and Diose's - a true home away from home. The cottage, Casablanca was lovely and very clean, perfect for 3! The grounds are very well kept. The included breakfast was plenty and delicious. We were also served lunch once, which was delicious ( definitely BEATS the food at Exotic ) -... More

From the booking, to the moment we got there, to the little walks to the cheap but really good restaurants he recommended, his stories, his eyes full of life, his helpful advice, the discount he gave us for the biggest cottage etc etc. Mike made our short stay at Mike & Diose's perfect! The place itself is at the very... More

1st of all, Mike (the host) is very friendly and helpful which made our stay very enjoyable. We booked the Bamboo huts but arrived late where the huts were given to others but Mike upgraded the 4 of us to the Casablanca which is even better. (Enclosed the picture of the house with it's own garden!). Although they only serve... More

He has a friendly voice. Me and four of my friends went there on June, we stayed here overnight. Since it was June, there weren't a lot... More
