We came to Evolution Resort on April 7th evening after 2 long days traveling and without our luggage and our diving equipment that did not arrive to Manila with us. The team that was updated by our agent (WildDive) on our situation were waiting for us with a warm and very friendly welcome , they made sure that we will have some new shirts, diving equipment and everything needed for our stay and diving until we will get our luggage. They made all efforts and were in touch with our agent, the airline company and who ever needed to make sure that our luggage is found, safe, on the way to the Island and finally to our room – just amazing! We stayed 5 nights in an AC DBL room that had been great with a nice view to the sea. The dives and specially Monad Shoal and Gato Island were WOW. Food was great and the WHOLE team were AMAZING, everyone did his best to make sure that we will enjoy and we really did. We faced the edge of an unexpected Typhoon including closing of the island by the coast Guard which held us for another day but the great team, again made everything needed for us to feel good. We want to thank everyone for the hospitality, professionalism, solution to every problem and creating a wonderful feeling for every day of our stay. Highly recommended also for a long stay for those who want to relax and forget everything and of course the dives are amazing, special and beautiful. So Big Thanks to Matt and the whole team and hope to come back soon.

Evolution Resort is situated in an excellent location, with a wide beachfront that has a perfect view of the sunrise and a sky full of stars. The rooms are clean and spacious, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The pets are extremely cute too! The resort made all transfer arrangements and of course it helped that they run an great dive shop too.

the resort was very private and has a wide beach front with clean, fine, white sand. it was very comfortable. rooms are big and roomy, all amenities are in tip top shape. very clean and relaxing atmosphere. the owner matt came to meet us at the pier and already we felt welcome and at home. we went around the island to take a peak at the other resorts. but really, if you're looking for a place to stay at malapascua, look no further because this resort is the best place to be. you have your privacy yet the staff and even the owners are at your service, friendly and easy. if you have any questions, special requests, they are more than accommodating. if you want to learn more about diving at any level, their team has so much experience, there is no better place to learn from. also, the sunrise and sunsets here are epic. at night, it was a sky full of stars, with little to no obstructions. it was beautiful. the only comment i would add for the place to improve is the food selection. it was good but not great and limited. understandable with less guests during this covid period. but it's still a very charming, comfortable place to chill. overall, this trip is definitely one for the books.

I recently spent a week at Evolution and had an absolutely fantastic time. From the responsive communication with booking to being welcomed as we arrived, everyone at Evolution went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful time. The resort is on the quiet end of the beach and our bungalow was cleaned daily. The food at the Craic House was quite good, we really liked the daily happy hour! My husband and I are active divers in the Philippines and were extremely impressed by the professionalism and passion of the dive guides. We had a blast diving with Vince and Josh throughout the week. They were so friendly and approachable, even during the early hours for Monad Shoal! We were lucky enough to dive Monad Shoal multiple times and while each dive was different, we saw the gorgeous thresher sharks each time. The dive boats were also large (good for social distancing!) and clean. We're already planning to go back again soon!

Best dive shop in malapascua and #1 in my list of top 3 shops in the Philippines. They offer the complete line of courses. Rebreather you want? They got you covered. Instructors teach you the proper ways of diving. How diving should be taught. Rooms are great. Food is really good. Not pretentious. Get the Hangover Sandwuch. Order it at least 5 times during your stay at Evo!

Stayed here for 6 nights with a friend and did some diving. The resort is incredible, right on the beach, super clean, helpful and friendly staff. Everything is really comfortable and the island is easy to walk around. I did an open water course and had 1-1 instruction which was incredible. We also did a few fun dives - everything was really professionally organised and the staff were all really nice and adaptable.

Evelution diving resort is a Wonderful, small and quiet resort with a very friendly straff. The Beaches, especially the North Beach, were an adventure, which we have not experienced before. The trip on the Kalanggaman Island with the locals we will neven forget. We want to come back to Malapascua Island again later. Thank you very much from the Norwegian.

Accomodation was lovely and clean. Seemed a bit overpriced for the Philippines for the size of the room. Staff were super lovely and restaurant had great food. If you’re not a diver no real effort made or offer of other activities eg snorkeling or island hopping

They provide seamless boat/van transfer from airport to resort at a fee of php 5200 one way. The van is not exactly in the best condition but does the work. Resort room is clean, they fill up a flask of water daily. Bedsheet they didn’t change it from previous occupant (plenty of hair left behind on white linen). Diving with them - it’s not pleasant but I have reviewed them separately under evolution diving. It’s probably one of the best resort in this small island, please manage your expectation well before the trip. Food is average, staff not smiley.
