Malapascua Legends is the only place in the island that has a pool. This was the reason why we chose to stay here.
The rooms were big enough. They have all the basics you would expect from a hotel. Hot and cold showers, modern interiors, lcd TV. For me, Malapascua Legends looked like the best amongst all the other accommodation options in the island.
Their service however still has room for improvement. I couldn't help but feel discriminated since I'm a Filipino as the staff would always prioritize the foreign tourists.

A barangay of the town of Daanbantayan, Malapascua Island takes pride in its world class diving spots and pristine white sand beaches. It is widely referred by locals as the "Boracay of Cebu." As a diving destination, Malapascua Island has become known for its beautiful coral gardens and excellent local dive spots, as well as further out sites like Gato Island, Monad Shoal, and Kemod Shoal. Monad Shoal is an underwater plateau where thresher sharks and manta rays can be seen on a regular basis. The town's name is derived from two Spanish words, "mal" and "pascua", which translated in English means, "bad" and "Easter" or bad Christmas. According to locals, the Spaniards named the island that way after they arrived there on a stormy Christmas. Malapascua Island is a promise of a great dive and a relaxing beach experience, making it a popular travel destination for local and foreign tourists alike. ... more less
