I stayed here for a week and like many other reviewers was very happy with the resort . It is a short (two minute) walk to the beach but what it lacks in sea view it makes up for in other things.The staff are lovely, very friendly and go out of their way to help you with any requests. The rooms are clean and well presented with a range of options to suit different budgets. The resort has free internet/wifi and you can make free international calls to a number of countries - great if you are away from home for a long time. There is also a swimming pool, table tennis, pool table and movies. The breakfasts, included with the room rates are great, I really liked the stuffed french toast. The only improvement I would like to see made is more vegetarian options on the menu.
I also dived with the resort and really enjoyed the experience all of the equipment is brand new and Tony and Lee were very friendly and helpful.
One final point I know a previous reviewer mentionned creepy men in the village (this almost put me off booking) I am a solo female traveller and I felt perfectly safe at Purple Snapper and on Malapascua, the locals were not creepy and were very friendly.
