We stayed there for 5 nights in one of their nice cottages, almost directly at the beach. The location is really nice and very good for relaxing, as it is located at the end of the beach and calm. I specially enjoyed the hammocks under the trees, where you can rest and enjoy the view of the fabulous beach and... More

Rooms were lovely. We stayed in villa casablanca. We were upgraded for free from the attached guesthouse siko. The villa had a lot of charm, it wasn't large but fitted in 4 22 y/o boys with luggage. The veranda was a lovely place for a evening beer. Provided by the well stocked and very reasonably priced fridge. Rooms were cleaned... More

Our first room was a little dark, but very spacious, with a balcony and hammock outside. Nice! Then we moved to another room upstairs which was absolutely gorgeous with a loft bed for our son. Recommend the upstairs room for families! The owners were very generous and kind. The only small cons were the staff were a little surly at... More

We stayed in the cheaper nanny room. If you are considering this, just expect a basic room with an ensuite (extra plus) That is unsually shaped but spacious and clean. Loved the resort, the beach location, hammocks and the big the breakfast. Really nice place to stay if you are on a budget. Book in advance. Rooms were full so... More

You can see the tripadvisor reviews. also Lonely Planet rates as one of its top four choices in all the western Visayas.

Thank you for your new edited Tripadvisor comment and sorry about your bad experience you had. When you checked out you had absolutely no complaints, you just said its due to some "family problems" that you have to checkout earlier than... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in June. We had the upstairs room at the back which was extremely spacious and clean - fridge, table and chairs and hammock on the large balcony. We were able to negotiate on the price which made it a real bargain. Good sized clean bathroom with hot water. The beach area and hammocks were... More

I just love everything about my stay here in this laidback paradise place. How I chose where to stay in Malapascua was over the internet and people’s recommendation. And I was pretty amazed as to how it feels like to be staying in a place I only get to check online. Since I was on a solo budget travel, I... More
