Over a month of travelling around Philippines and this has been by far the most amazing and our favourite place to stay, even though it was during typhoon. From the moment we walked in, we had a very warm welcome and were treated like part of the family for the duration of our stay. The rooms are beautiful and very well thought out, all have balconies or small terrace where you can relax. The main restaurant/bar area is also incredibly welcoming with comfortable tables and beds. There is a pool table, football table and various board games to keep you entertained. Huge choice of food, so you really will never be bored of eating here. I honestly can't praise this place enough!!

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of 3 weeks travelling through The Philippines. Had a truly wonderful time in the resort and would recommend it to anyone staying in Malapascua. First thing to mention is the boat journey from the mainland to the island. I definitely recommend getting on the boat early in the day, the later you leave it the choppier the water can be. On arrival to the beach we were met by 2 of the girls who presented us with a welcome drink and a shell necklace. I knew from this moment we were going to have a great time here. Rooms - stayed in the premium double room. Large comfy double bed with balcony overlooking the beach, separate shower and toilet and cheap minibar. Restaurant/Bar - large menu and everything we had was delicious Breakfast is a buffet but can get eggs, bacon, omelette's made to order also. Ate lunch and dinner here almost everyday. Pizza, curries, steak all extremely tasty and well cooked. Good atmosphere in the bar during the evening. Some background music playing through the speakers and pool/foosball tables there also. Diving - great team and enjoyable experience with Dive Society. We completed our Open Water Diver course with Jera and following that took the early morning trip to see the Thresher Sharks. Kalanggaman - the definition of a paradise Island and a great day trip well worth doing. We arranged with Jera in Dive Society who put us onto the day trip to Kalanggaman. PHP800pp for the boat transfer including lunch plus PHP500pp for entry fee to the island. Staff - couldn't be more helpful. Always smile and say hello when you are walking through the bar/restaurant. After writing this review I wish I could go back again tomorrow! Thanks to everyone at Kokay's Maldito who helped make our stay on Malapascua Island unforgettable

Kokay’s Resort is located In Malapascua, a famous destination for scuba divers looking for thresher sharks and mandarin fish 🐠. It’s more than 3 hours drive from Mactan International Airport plus a 15-minute boat ride to the Island of Malapascua. It offers excellent service, good food, hospitable and friendly staff, and homey room accommodation with stunning sunset. The diving service and dive sites are also amazing. It was a short trip but fun. Waking up at 4:00 a.m. everyday to see a thresher shark 🦈 was indeed a rewarding experience. I would never forget my first encounter with the thresher shark at 101 feet.

We book for a week to stay and dive. The staffs are super friendly and all waitresses are very beautiful and cute :). Due to the extension of the previous guest, we were arranged to the top roof room for 2 days in the beginning. It's a huge room with modern facilities, however, the slope shape of the roof, we had to be very careful when we were walking around the room. We hit the head and arms for few times. If the manager could provide some notice or protection would be much better. Also, it is a little bit not convenient for diver as there is no hanging place in/out of the room. Later we moved to the room we booked, it is a lovely room. The food in the resort is remarkably good with the big dish. As it was not the best season to dive, the visibility was not that good for early morning shark dive. Besides, if you are planning to do underwater photographic, it would be better to request a private guild as the DMs has different level. We would love to come back for future trip.

Rooms are well maintained. Clean and cosy. The staff are helpful and friendly. Although staff really should not be knocking on our doors at 11pm to get us to sign our bill! It happened 2 nights in a row. (We needed to wake up at 4am to dive!) Wifi was mostly non-existent. The food is good! Best food on the island.

kokay's maldito dive resort , well I can say that this place is nice,what you will see in their website photos are the same when you see the place. we arrived early at malapascua and mariel, one of the staff allowed us for an early check in. Thanks to her we had a chance to freshen up. Me and my husband are all wet because of that bumpy boat ride .. when it comes to food variety, they have a wide range of menu you can enjoy. ooh and they have this delicious ice cream, I think it's an italian ice cream. our room is pretty nice , we stayed in the room near the shore . from our room you can see the beach and there is a hammock to sit on and relax. malapascua is a pretty laid back town , if you are looking for a place to relax this is the place to be. not congested and at night you can just seat , listen to the waves and watch the stars while enjoying your favorite drink..

I am enjoying everything about this place even with a bad weather. Ah the food is good too and breakfast is included. If you make to beautiful Malapascoa stay here. You will probably like it as much as everyone I met in here. Just amazing.
