Our second visit and came away wanting to go back!. Superbly managed but with a laid back comfortable feel. We reserved 9 rooms for our dive club and everyone agreed, for a dive resort the room facilities were excellent. Their good organisation for all 20 of us from the South China Diving Club meant we came away very happy. The...

Second time diving with Evolution, was perfect! This time with a group of 20 people from HK South China Diving Club. We had fantastic time mixed with recreational diving, technical diving, CCR diving. Room was very nice and clean. Really appreciate their awareness of the environmental protection. Definitely will be back again. I miss Bruce, the cutest dog.

We were lucky to stay in one of their newly added AC rooms - it is clean and neat, with all the necessities provided: beach towels, shower towels, shampoo, shower gel, drinking water, hot shower water (although we understand that on this tiny island, the water pressure is not always stable) and mostly importantly, the AC :) Although the pillow...

As already said in my review of the Dive shop itself, it is very professional, from the great seriousness and extended knowledge of the instructors, to the professionalism the Dive Masters, and without forgetting the amazing boat crews working hard to prepare all your equipment by day or by night. The resort also has a great restaurant with a good...

Staying at the deluxe AC room we had an amazing time! The resort is in a walking distance from every interest point on the island but offers all you could ask for, with the amazing restaurant, diving resort and beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful, offering his instant help with every problem that we might have, around the...

The rooms are clean and neat, very modern, with 24h warm water. The staff is very helpful, professional and smiling. The food is very good (my favorite was the veggie beans burger!). Definitely recommended!

I booked Evolution as I was thinking of sparing myself from the hassle of booking a different dive operator and thought it'll be best to book both lodging and diving with them… NOT. Booked the first flight out of Cebu from Manila to reach Malapascua as early as possible thinking it'll be a good excuse to escape the hustle and...

My partner and I stayed in the Evolution Dive Resort for week of diving with Evolution. (Review of the diving on the diving trip advisor page) The rooms are simple but nice and very clean. We chose a delux room as we wanted aircon. Because we were on a diving holiday we don't need anything fancy when it comes to...

In comparasion to other resorts on the island the budget rooms are reasonable as in value for money. The aircon rooms are expensive, but it is an island! The staff are good and the restuarant serves decent food at reasonable prices. BUT! Probably the main reason to come her is the dive centre which is also at the resort. The...

We recently enjoyed a wonderful stay at Evolution with a group of friends from Hong Kong. Although we were delayed by 4 hours, our transport to Malapascua was handled with ease. Considering the ride is 3 hrs by van and then a 30 minute boat ride, we were happy to pay the very reasonable price of roughly $25 USD per...

“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.”
