Stayed for 2 nights in a Deluxe beachfront room. Very convenient location. They had a faucet by the balcony to rinse sand off your shoes - very thoughtful. I also liked that they provided the complimentary drinking water in a glass bottle everyday rather than in single-use plastic water bottles. Everyone should be doing that! Bathroom was a bit cramped, there was no bidet or pail with "tabo". No tv so you will really be encouraged to go out and find stuff to do. Wifi didn't work most of the time. Didn't get welcome drinks even though the room inclusion said there were.

Hi there and thanks for your comments! We are glad you enjoyed our environmental touches as well :) We try to keep our environmental footprint down as much as we can. We apologize about the welcome drinks - please come back and visit us after this pandemic and we can offer you some yummy cocktails in place of those welcome drinks! As for our Wifi, it's a curse on this island... most places wifi doesn't work at all because we have no solid connection to the mainland. Thanks for the feedback and the kind words. Hope to see you again!

We stayed here for 5 nights and wish it was more. By the time we left we knew nearly every staff member by name. We were treated so well and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. One night I had a head ache and someone went to a store and got me Tylenol, our daughter needed a life jacket to swim and one was provided. We needed an extra bed, no problem. Every request was enthusiastically met.

Our suite was ground level, right on the beach, which was a very much appreciated spot to be a young daughter.

The restaurant is right on the beach too, the chef comes out during every service to check on the guests meals, where do you see that kind of service? oh and the food was incredible, every plate.

The managers Lee and Dor were awesome as well. Very approachable and friendly.

We were thankful the live band scheduled for the Saturday night had to cancel, because Lee has some serious skills on the guitar and microphone, he entertained us for hours!

It won’t take you long to tell this is a well cared for hotel with a team that loves what they do. Yes it’s on the beach and malapascua is paradise, but the love you get from the staff makes it just that much more special. Hippocampus deserves more than 3 stars. Based on my experience, it’s better than most 5 star resorts in the Philippines.

This place stole our heart.

I stayed here as I wanted to dive with the Thresher sharks and the hotel was convenient for that.

The room and bathroom was clean...the restaurant and bar was good (I wasn't tempted to eat elsewhere).

It was above functional without being exceptional. But for island accomodation is was just right.

Right on the beach. The live band and karaoke can be loud at night, so ask for a room at the back if you prefer less noise. Rooms are standard. Devocean divers is attached to the resort but you can dive with any company you want. Happy hour at the bar from 4-7. Restaurant food is amazing! Not as cheap as local food, but good selection and delicious, especially the breakfast. Nice to enjoy a drink with a view.

Hi there! Thanks for the kind words, by why only 3 stars dude? ;) To clarify, the live band is only on Wednesday and Saturday nights and goes up until 11PM. We never have karaoke, so that is not a problem. We have three categories of rooms, each having more amenities and thus a higher price than the other, depending on which you choose. Thank you again for the review, we hope to see you back again!

Myself & my partner have decided to take a little break from our online jobs and find a little escape on a gorgeous island of Malapascua. Whenever we travel around South East Asia, we don't focus on the actual accommodation that much, since we are always out and about exploring, and we think that the basic amenities such as bed, shower, toilet & air-con is a must, everything else is a bonus. However, Hippocamus not only met all of our expectations but they actually went above & beyond.

When we arrived, we realised that the resort is right on the beachfront of Bounty beach so it only took us 1 minute to walk from where we got dropped off. Super easy!
We were welcomed by lovely staff of Hippocampus, they all had lovely smiles and seemed to be very approachable. We've also met up with the owner of the place - Lee. He kindly showed us around and told us what is there to do on the island and around which was super nice of him!
We stayed at this resort for two nights and we couldn't be happier! We had a room with a sea view, it looked like a picture rather than a window, couldn't believe it ourselves how beautiful it was! Our room was very spacious, perfect temperature, the bed was extremely comfortable, big and soft and the water pressure was very strong in the bathroom.
We have also enjoyed some live entertainment at the resort, they had a live band on which was very engaging with the public and we danced the night away with some delicious mojitos in our hands!
In terms of food, they serve a variety of items, from Filipino to Western food. We highly recommending trying their 'all meat pizza', pork chop, pork adobo and Caesar salad. In terms of breakfast, go for eggs Benedict and mixed fruit granola bowl - to die for!
We have truly enjoyed every single bit of our stay at Hippocampus and there is nothing bad that we could say about this place. Great atmosphere, amazing ambiance during the evening, easy to meet foreigners and locals and very comfortable rooms with stunning views!
p.s. if you collect a bag of rubbish, you can get a free coffee and they also use bamboo straws which helps to save the environment! They focus on plastic-free environment which is a very nice aspect of their ethics!
We will be back! Best wishes from Micha & Justina ( Beer For Breakfast )
