I stayed at Malapascua legends on a recent dive trip. I'm not much into writing reviews but the service I received here was excellent. The staff along with Mr M. The general manager was extremely helpful with any and all questions I had. They were very prompt in resolving any problems that I had as well. I am extremely happy... More

Date of stay: July 2-4, 2015 Price: Php1,800 originally then marked down to 1,600 with the help of a local tour guide with dark humor. We initially planned an overnight stay only, but due to the low pressure area, there were no boats going to Kalanggaman Island so we stayed for another night. Budget Room This room is good for...

If you read my review of a bed and breakfast on Malapascua you will see that I am not Mary Sunshine when writing reviews. As well, one of the strengths of tripaadvisor is you can read a wide range of assessments. Having said this, however, I just plain don't understand the negative reviews of this hotel. Our stay was excellent.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a long and lovely vacation in the Philippines. On the plus side, the pool is lovely and big and they have good sun loungers. also, massive credit is due to the chef who cooked the most delicious pizzas under their Italian menu -they were honestly the best...

This was our second hotel in our two week holiday to the Philippines. We came to this island to dive and were recommended this hotel. The hotel itself is in a prime location and rooms were large and nice. The aircon in our room didn't have a remote ! The toilet didn't flush properly and the shower was a trickle... More

It probably has the largest swimming pool in malapascua. Overall, the room is alright and comfy with tv. Breakfast is also good with unlimited coffee and porridge. The only con is the towel which look worn. Also, the aircon is quite noisy at night/

We stayed a couple of nights in Legend which is in the better end of Bounty Beach. There is more sand here as opposed to the other end where Blue Corral is where the beach is more dirty and there is coral sand. But the beach is not really super good for swimming, you can go a few meters out... More

It took me almost 2 months to plan where exactly we would stay in Malapascua Island. I've sent some inquiries through emails regarding other resorts, then I have sent one to Malapascua legend and the reply was quick. Thanks to Rainer who assisted me from all the bookings and reservations of the rooms then the boat pick up. We stayed... More
