If you are planning to dive or do your courses in Malapascua you should definitely come here. I have asked in all the dive centers around town and in this one since the moment that you step in you realize that they care about you, your necessities, they are really professional and passionated people. For them you are not just...

Good service from all the staff, clean room serviced every day. Aircon worked, Fridge worked, Safe deposit box in room, mosquito net over large bed, hot and cold shower worked, separate toilet & shower room. We stayed in a super deluxe room #17. Room #16 is next to the onsite dive centre so can get noisy at times. Breakfast was...

With the start of our Philippines trip beginning in Malapascua Island, and booking kind of last minute for a place to stay. We where happy with the choice we made to stay at this cute oceanside resort. From the moment we got off the boat and entered the bar/restaurant area, we were welcomed by one of the dive instructors (Santi)...

The good thing with this resort was that the room is big, the bed was quite comfortable, the breakfast is included and the shower was really good (compared to most of the places in the Philippines). The worst thing was the service, especially one of the girl from the staff which from the start had a very bad attitude. When...

This review is for the accommodation and food. We stayed at the fan room. The interior was pretty. They provide mosquito net but it didn't really work. There are many mosquitoes. The room was hot (one electric fan doesn't suffice) so it's advisable to just get the air-conditioned room instead. The flush of the toilet didn't work well, it was...

i booked a week in advanced at the Little Mermaid resort and ended up staying almost 2 weeks. Me and my partner stayed in the A/C rooms with private bathroom which are huge. Way bigger than any other in the island of the same price range which is a big plus if you plan to stay a few days and/or...

I took my open water and advanced diver course here. Took me 5 days, with a great instructor (Michael), where I was the only student and got all of his attention with a very professional approach. The head of the dive center (Roland was very attentive and helpful), welcomed me at the resort and offered the free accommodation in the...

Dived with little mermaid to see thresher sharks for just 1700 PHP and they did not disappoint. I had multiple sightings so very satisfied. I recommend DM Dexter - he has a good eye, and knew to check the shallows rather than just have us sit on the line waiting, like most other dive groups.

I'm not a diver, so the review is just about the lodging, food and service. The room was spacious, clean and nicely furnished, the staff relatively well trained and attentive and the food better than the average, especially the sumptouos and tasty breakfasts (the only thing deserving criticism are the powdered juices they offer, in my opinion, it would be...
