We arrived Malapascua by bangka from Bantayan...and wow is this a beautiful island! We had a little look around at different resorts, and when the kids saw the pool at Legend...no need to look any further. We got a very nice big room with a big tiled bathroom and two big comfy beds, breakfast included for 2500 pesos(low season price). The pool is fantastic with lovely soft clear water. The beach is lovely with white sand and clear waters, best for svimming on high tide, on low tide our kids played with the sweet local kids looking for crabs and little fish.
The restaurant on Legend serve good food, nice pizza and good drinks. The staff is very sweet and helpful. The room is cleaned every day.
Malapascua is a wonderful island, people is fantastic and friendly. Logon village is nice, some little shops and nice to have a chat with the people there. There are massage ladies on the beach, we got nice massages and I got manicure and pedicure:)
I have to come back one day!

This is a beautiful island and a nice place to stay. The rooms are the most luxurious on the island, as they have air con, cable TV and hot showers.. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. They do not yet have any childrens cots or baby chairs for the restaurant though so keep this in mind if you are travelling with young kids. The pool is beautiful, very warm and great for the kids to play in. The food is just OK.... not horrible, but not served with any finesse. Our tip would be go on down the beach to the restaurant at the Evolution dive centre, as they have a very delicious bistro style menu which changes every day. Negotiate with the manager for a good price and a room proce inclusive of food. We negotiated and ended up getting all our food and drink included in the proce of the room... this included alcoholic drinks and was a great saving.

A bit rough around the edges but overall a good place to stay.

We originally stayed at White Sands cottages which if you are looking for a cottage is great. BUT the cottage was right next to a loud nightclub and we wanted some AC and a pool. We found Legends and because it was off season we got a good special price 2500 a night - including breakfast. Beautiful rooms, lovely bathroom (somewhat brakish water - small island), cable tv. The internet was down on the entire island - guess it was SmartBro and they didn't have Globe (but The Exotic down the beach did have it and it was great - The Exotic also had a great restaurant). The pool was key in our decision making and it was a great pool. Breakfast was ordinary, nice staff. Would stay here again for 2500 but not for 5000, 2500 is about our limit for what we like to spend on a room. Oh- the rooms were really soundproof which was important for the loud discos on the beach that you might end up near on the weekends. Rent a bike from the hotel to ride around the island.

We moved here for some luxury during our stay on Malapascua and were impressed with the rooms at Legend. Two huge double beds and a big wardrobe and tv, plus a large bathroom with a walk in shower. This hotel offers something not yet available elsewhere on the island - luxury. Breakfast was included and was nice. We also received a welcome drink upon arrival!

The luxury comes at a price and rooms are far more expensive than elsewhere on the island. We negotiated a good rate with the manager as we were walk in customers but I doubt such a good discount would be available when booking in advance.

The hotel offers a boat shuttle back and forth from Cebu and you can share with other guests making it good value and far less hastle than walking to take the ferry.

The pool is perhaps not required on such a pretty island but it was a nice way to relax after a days diving.

Diving with Evolution Diving was superb. We saw the thresher sharks and dived Gato Island which was incredible!! Highly ecommended!

All in all Malapascua was an incredible island and if you want luxury there the Legend is a good choice!
