Definitely the best value for money you Will get on Malapasqua. Pros: - their own private beach. On the end of the developed area and hardly any outside guests on the beach - spacious, new rooms with all amenities you Will need - friendly lady who takes care of the place Cons: - the roosters. We didn't have one good... More

Staying in Mike and Diose's Beach Cottages was a highlight to my visit to Malapascua. As a solo traveller on a budget I was offered a single room, very reasonably priced. The cottages are past Evolution diving on Bounty Beach, so very close to all dive shops and restaurants, however, the place is tucked away just enough to offer a... More

My friends and I had a great time here. The staff though most of the time confused, was very helpful and nice. Yes, the owner was unavailable at the time we were here. But that's fine. It was a great experience for me and my fellow diver friends. The location was a good 20 minute walk from the dive shop... More

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
