“Very pleasent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Stayed at Slams for 6 days in July 2012. Despite the construction work gong on, it was a very pleasent stay, with very friendly staff always standing by to help you and offer advise on what to eat and what to do. Slams is a small well kept lodging with nice clean rooms. just a short 2 mins walk to the heart of the island.

Love the place !

In 2010, my family stayed at Slam's with great pleasure. The resort is clean and lovely. The smile of the staff impressed us deeply. In 2011, I chose Slam's again. I found their rooms became more, and Wifi acess and restaurant are available. What's more? We met a cheater/guide who cheated our money. Although it's not a large amount, but May(Slam's manager) helped us and got a success. For me, Slam's is not just a place for accommodation. I will always choose Slam's as my place when I stay at Malapascua.

I stayed at Slams for a week during my diving trip with TSD. Rooms are basic and clean, though they only change your towels once every 2 days. Overall good value and proximity to the beach and the dive resorts near TSD.

Note: they didn't seem to provide blankets and only gave a thin sheet. The beds seem to be surrounded by small ants as well.

I stayed with them in May 2012 for 4 nights. The room was kept very clean every day and it was the result of the thorough job done by the house keeping team. Bed sheet and towel was snow white. The toilet and the shower was separated by a 1.5 meters plastic wall, this is a very good idea to keep the toilet dry after showering.

Slam's Garden Resort is value for money accommodation in Malapascua Island.

Room Tip: If the resort are full and you are arriving early, be prepared to wait until 2pm or even 3pm to chec...

I was in Malapascua for 4 days diving. Slams was someone I chose because it looked up together and clean. I was not wrong. The thing that really made the experience for me was the staff. I ended up spending a fair amount of time at their bar (small but quaint) during happy hour. All of them were helpful and really friendly. I could hardly fault the place on anything. Rooms we spacious and clean (they cleaned them every day). The location was close to everything but a little out of the way from the main strip. I left Malapascua completely in love; with the island and the people.

Thanks to everyone at Slam's for making me feel so welcome.

Close but not on the beach.
Nice new rooms.
Good air con
Good wifi
No inhouse resturant but has an inhouse bar.
Friendly staff.

There seemed to be a bit of a plumbing issue with our room as the toilet did have a constant smell of wee. The door shut and the window open big a bit of a job on that. The room was not affected unless you left the bathroom door open.

No TV in the room but why would you want one on an island like this.

In room safe.
