We had a deluxe room and we found it to be just that in a no-frills sort of way. There was AC, but we rarely had to use it because the fan was powerful. There was a small refrigerator that stayed on when the key was removed which was nice for emergency charging of phone batteries. The room was extremely...

This place has got to be the best. The diving was great, even if some days the viz wasn't super. My dive guide, Gino, was absolutely fantastic, really knows his stuff, and Carlos a real character, you got to love them both. The captain and his crew couldn't do enough to please you, their pretty special people in my book....

If you're in for a PADI course or fun Dive, this is the place. The dives was really nice. You got to go at Gato Island. The room was OK. The restaurant was nice and number of choices was perfect. The staff was really kind, funny and chatty. I did my Open Water with Vanessa and it was perfect!

This is truly the best place to enjoy Evolution Dive Center due to the location. But, I want to mention some dissatisfaction on my room. I don't know if every room is like this. Bugs The room was clean. Nevertheless, there were so many ants and some other bugs. When I come back in the afternoon, my case was having...

The resort has clean facilities and the room we had at the second floor gave us a good night sleep after the island hopping and other activities in the island of Malapascua and the neighboring Kalanggaman Island. You can pay thru credit card with an additional 2.5% charge rate. The Craic House, the resort's resto serves appetizing food.

Evolution is a dive resort. And so it's focused on diving. The rooms and service is still great. Not expecting much when arriving I was very happy about the whole experience. Friendly staff and great food from the kitchen. Easy to organise the dives with the guides. Some early mornings though. Nice boats and a great atmosphere. If you don't...

My friends and I had an incredible experience at Evolution. The rooms are clean, spacious and come with your own balcony. The overall atmosphere was very relaxing and peaceful. It never felt too crowded and was never too loud. All of the staff I interacted with were friendly and helpful. I completed my open water certification with Nick who was...

Probably the nicest place to stay at while scuba diving in Malapascua. Right on the beach, at the end of the path along said beach. The rooms are great, clean, with a nice balcony.

“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.”
