We stayed 4 nights and were most happy with all aspects of the resort. The beachside location is true tropical paradise material with white shelly sand, coconut trees and a warm gentle ocean to swim in. Dive boat leaves from right off the beach - so convenient!

Stayed here in march 2017. Weather was cooler than average, so diving was chilly. The resort is very small and simple. No pool, and it was missed since most dive resorts we've been to have one. - if you take public ferry from mainland to malapascua, the walk from the drop off to evolution is a solid 10-15 min walk,...

Magnificent part of the world and as someone who had never dived before, what a great place to learn. Great, friendly staff, our instructor Nick was excellent, facilities were amazing, location spectacular and would recommend to anyone. The Monad Shoal dive with the Threshers is a must!

Spent 6 nights here because I had read that the dive instructors were good. I can confirm that all staff is great, from reception, restaurant and the diving staff. The rooms are simple but clean. The restaurant serves really delicious food. I can highly recommend this place if you want good diving while chilling at a cosy place.

Evolution was all I was expecting and more, I had never dived before and my instructor was really good teaching me the basics. Hotel staff was always making sure I was comfortable and happy. Great food at the restaurant with good prices (comparing it to the prices on other places in the island). Great diving equipment and very qualified instructors....

“Would choose a fan room as you don't get much extra but an AC for double the price.”

“The best fan rooms are on the corners. If you go in Spring or Summer, I highly recommend aircon as it gets hot and not a lot of breeze.”
