Charming and ideally located hotel. Spotless rooms, friendly & caring staff AND super nice pool is always welcome to relax after a day exploring the island. Difficult to leave so ended up extending my stay! ;)

We were very happy with our week at Slams and would definitely stay again. Room furnishings are modest, but our bed was comfortable, the shower, ac and mini-frig worked well, and the housekeeping staff kept the room very clean. The grounds have many flowering trees and there’s a good sized pool with lounge chairs and shade options. Dining is in an open-air pavilion and the friendly, helpful staff kept us well fed. We were working remote and had some wifi trouble but found it worked best in this area. We appreciated that Slam’s had purified water available for us to refill our bottles from. Thank you for a good stay!

In between scuba sessions, I think I walked the whole island (rather untidy sadly..) and having seen the different levels of accommodation on offer, I think I can safely say that this is probably one of the best, all-round places you can get. The rooms are spacious and clean and the staff are friendly and accommodating. It’s nice to hang out at the pool and read or just chill on the balcony/porch. The food on offer at the restaurant (including breakfast..) is as good, if not better than anywhere else I ate, the prices are comparable and It’s only a short walk from the boat pier. I had air conditioning but I have to say I didn’t use it much, the fans are sufficient. The one gripe I have is the Wi-fi, it was so hit and miss and this didn’t seem to be the case in other cafes or restaurants. Having a good connection in this day and age enables some travelers, like me, to catch up with work AND travel at the same time, I found I could rarely do anything and I had to stand in the corner of the room closest to reception to get any signal. Overall it’s a very relaxing resort that actually forces those of us with busy, western lives to switch off.

Good location near restaurants (Villa Sandra, burger junction and the night market). Nice pool and surrounding area.

Rooms were basic but clean. Good A/C Pillows were really big and like rocks and we both had sore necks.

WiFi wasn't great. You're better to buy a sim card in the Philippines.

Breakfast was average. Big thick pancakes but eggs were undercooked a couple of times and my veggie soup had meat in it one day. (But was fine the others).

We didn't dive here.

Would stay again.

Lovely staff always pleasant, good selection for breakfast however nice mango on 1st day afterwards half a banana 4 days and a full banana 1 day. You make your own coffee in packets brought to table. Nice to have a welcome drink on arrival, the pool is deep and long enough to do laps. Pleasant garden and surrounds and a village market 5-10 minutes walk. Close (400 metres) to pier and beach landing for bangka boats from Maya ports. Meals are large servings and good quality.

Nice clean rooms and a good location and very well priced. A very nice place to stay with very friendly helpful staff. I would certainly recommend staying here. It feels clean and modern which was welcome after some other places we stayed.

Very accomodating staff. The place is clean and so the rooms. Not far from the boat Station. The pool is clean and perfect for family with kids. Food in the Restaurant is good and the price is ok. We did enjoy our stay.

Close to the little village, have their own dive shop (which I didn’t dive with), a nice and clean pool with some sun chairs. Internet working off and on but no impressive speed at any time, only in the restaurant area. Rooms with balconies. A breakfast menu to chose from. Okay value for the price.

It was my first time in Malapascua- and I was very glad to have stayed in Slams! The rooms and toilets were cleaned everyday and they changed the sheets and towels while we were out diving (magic haha). The people who worked there were very accommodating and friendly to me and my friends. Its located right beside the dive shop, Dive link -where I would set up my gear, so that was big plus as well.

The resort could definitely improve on their food though. All in all I would definitely stay here again!

Hello, we are in Malapascua island. North of Cebu island. It's quite far from Samar. Look in Google map. But from Malapascua you have to go back to Cebu to go to Samar. (Fly best). Thank you
