Clean and comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful service staff, no-frills breakfast available.

Pros: Located near enough to the great dive shops of Malapascua, right next to the best Italian restaurants on the island, Italian quality beach towels available on request, strictly no smoking in the rooms.

Cons: Only provides 2 500ml bottles of drinking water for your whole stay - but they allow you to refill your bottle at reception for PHP15 per fill.

Would come again, definitely would recommend.

We stayed in a Deluxe Room with balcony and a nice sea view. They assigned us a room on the upper floor as requested beforehand. The interior of the room was beautiful, mostly in white, with a big mirror at the wall. They provided free crackers each day which was a nice treat.

The beach around the hotel is calm, but rocky, so not so suitable for a swim, so you might better go to Bounty Beach. However, there will be some boat traffic there.

Breakfast was quite basic.

We organized pick-up and drop-off at Cebu City with the hotel and it worked out perfectly.

Absolutely wonderful place! First time visiting Malapascua, we arrived on a red eye flight and the hotel made all the arrangements for a nominal fee to have a driver pick us up and transport us the 3 hrs to the port where there was a charter boat waiting for us. Once we arrived we were warmly greeted and were able to partake in the breakfast buffet. The resort is nicely laid out to provide privacy, it us also in a beautiful location with views in both sides of the ocean and to allow for the wonderful ocean breeze. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owners, they treated us very warmly, like we were friends, rather than guests. All the employees in the resort were kind and friendly and went out if their way to make us comfortable. We loved our experience so much that we extended our stay and are already planning our next one. Malapascua is a bit of heaven on earth. Highly recommend visiting and make the Blanco Resort your place to stay.

We stayed over New Years and had a fantatsic time. From our first communications with staff about our trip to the organization of transport from Cebu Airport to Malapascua island, we received amazing service. Located on the southern tip of Malapascua on a quiet bay, the grounds were lovely, rooms simple, clean with fantatsic views of the ocean. Front office were great gicing us advice on diving and organizing massages and the nearby spa. Will definitely be back to Blanco and Malapascua soon!

Hotel Blanca is one of the NICEST places to stay on the island. The room is clean, I loved how it was decorated, it includes a stunning balcony view and we loved spending time looking at the sea and island life from our balcony. The beach area behind the hotel is fabulous with a beach bar and all kinds of loungers, flowers everywhere! It’s the best place to watch the sunset. It has one of the only working ATM machines on the island. The breakfast is excellent with fruit and fresh breads and everything you could want. I highly recommend one have dinner at the restaurant, but select one of the tables that are beachside for a very private and romantic and memorable dining experiences! The staff was very considerate and helpful.
Malapascua is an island with only 6000 residents. It’s remote and rustic, one should not have insanely high expectations about this backpackers destination, its island vibes, things are simple here. That is a part of what makes it so very special. If you have time, a visit to Malapascua Island is a MUST for your Philippine adventure. Diving with the Thresher Sharks is a once in a lifetime experience. The island is something special. If you have a little extra to spend, staying at this hotel will take your adventure up a notch. It’s beautiful, the staff are great and the restaurant and beach area are top notch.

The online reviews and photos looked great (as most do). We checked in with front desk receptionist. We then followed her up two more flights of steps, she led us to a small room (room 9) with a queen bed, shared balcony. I showed her the reservation request for king bed- she shrugged her shoulders, said “this is all we have” and she then walked out. The WiFi was poor, no TV at all. Your “view” and beach access is Cemetery Beach (not joking). This was the first trip to Malapascua Island for my friend and I. Neither of us were happy. Rather than let a crappy reservation ruin the trip here, I just ate the 3-night cost of the reservation (~$300) and we found another place to stay. It was an easy decision.

We loved everything about Blanco!

Starting from the very first contact, you know you are in good hands.
Family-run, elegant and quiet resort with personal touch and great assistance. Protected beach with coral restoration project is full of sealife and very private.
Generous, tasty breakfast (note: homemade jam and chocolate cream!) and Italian-Filipino cuisine for lunch and dinner, hooked us up for every day of our stay (real al dente pasta and fluffy pancakes).
Extremely clean rooms, decorated with Italian taste are facing both sides of the gulf, so you can be assured with nice view.
We felt welcomed and truly taken care of.

Thank you Blanco Team!

Best place in Malapascua, beautiful rooms with an excellent view. I recommend the ocean view, it was lovely to fall a sleep with the sound of the ocean.
The resort is in a quiet area on the island with a private beach, where you can snorkle with small black tip reef sharks.

The resort vibe is easy going, beautiful garden, sweet and friendly staff.
The owner and his parents make you feel right at home.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights over Christmas 2019. Very friendly staff and nice rooms. Run by Italians so food, coffee and overall design were of high standard. Unfortunately we were hit by a Type 3 Typhoon on Christmas Eve which was quite a frightening experience. If it hadn't been for the well built house we stayed in, the outcome could have been disastrous. Anyway, kudos to everyone at Blanco who made our stay very enjoyable.
