Having stayed in several other places on Malapascua, it was delight to try out Evolution for the first time. The owners Matt and David are super friendly, helpful and takes great care of their guests. The Craic House bar serves excellent food and even sports a wide selection of drinks including a very nice cider. On my last evening they...

We arranged a private transfer from Cebu to try to save a bit of time on a fairly short trip which worked out well. The taxi driver was efficient and (relatively) safe, and there was a private boat waiting for us at the pier. When we arrived, the reception staff were friendly and welcomed us etc, I'm sure you have...

Overall I can't fault the accommodation or dive facilities provided by this boutique resort. I've travelled to about 50 overseas destinations , and normally there is always a problem. The staff are friendly and helpful and the restaurant food is excellent. I would stay here again.

We found the place over marketed compare to what we found on site. On the top of that, our first dive being poorly managed we have decided to cut short our vacation by 5 nights on 7 initially planned.

We visited Malapascua three years ago and enjoyed it so much that we came back, dragging a few more friends with us! We are keen divers and love the variety of underwater seascapes that Malapascua offers...it's not just all thresher sharks (although they are definitely a key attraction)! Evolution really look after you making everything easy...your gear is transported to...

My friends and I all stayed at Evolution to get our Open Water or Advanced licenses. The diving itself was quite stressful as we didn't have much time to relax and chill before or after and the days were quite full on. However, it was blissful when we got back to the hotel as it was never too busy and...

My family, friends and I planned to go diving in Malapascua and Evolution came up as one of the recommended resorts. I'm glad that we booked here as it did not disappoint. Having to arrange the trip for 9 divers as well as 4 non-divers (3 of which were children) was not as hard as I thought it would be....

We did the Open Water course at Evolution and stayed for more dives afterwards. Service is normally quite good (although slow) in the Philippines as people are friendly and generally happy - but at Evolution the service is great! - High quality instructors/dive masters: everyone was really nice and delivered high quality in terms of planning dives and showing all...

“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.”
