The place is beachfront and has 2 types of rooms. Standard and superior The superior room is little bigger with a basic desk, small fridge and remote control a/c The standard has manual ac, no desk no fridge No room service to both rooms and no soap and shampoo provided. Bring your own The wifi on the premises is pathetic unless you are on the front At 2000 peso a room the place is exensive
Stopped in n here to watch the great live entertainment. Two girls with tremendous voices belting out a mixture of pop and rock classics. They were superb. Sadly the same cannot be said of the bar. We ordered gin and tonic and were shocked to discover that the gin was clearly watered down! We complained to our waitress who brought us fresh gins and this time opened the bottle in front of us. I know times have been hard but treating customers this way is not the way forward.
My weekend was amazing while staying at Hippocampus Beach Resort. They have well trained and accommodating staff to make your stay memorable and safe. You’ll feel like your part of the family. Rooms are spacious and clean to ensure that you will have a great sleep at night. A bar right at the beach front will spice up your night mood.
It’s sort of a home away from home. Except, people are more friendly. In the recent light of covid-19 scares, this is when you get to see people as they are. Here are the friendliest and most helpful staff, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. We got help with transport, pharmacy runs to the mainland and so much more, while still feeling we belonged. It’s the best place. Nothing else to be said about it.
If you are traveling to Malapascua, and you don’t know where to stay, look no further. Hippocampus has everything you want in a hotel. It’s directly on the beach, rooms are great, has a packed beach bar, staff are nice and very attentive. Manager will go beyond, and make sure you feel welcomed and have the time of your life. Nothing but love for this place, and we will definitely be back.
Stayed for 2 nights in a Deluxe beachfront room. Very convenient location. They had a faucet by the balcony to rinse sand off your shoes - very thoughtful. I also liked that they provided the complimentary drinking water in a glass bottle everyday rather than in single-use plastic water bottles. Everyone should be doing that! Bathroom was a bit cramped, there was no bidet or pail with "tabo". No tv so you will really be encouraged to go out and find stuff to do. Wifi didn't work most of the time. Didn't get welcome drinks even though the room inclusion said there were.
We stayed here for 5 days. Rooms are clean, have AC, wall fan, hot water shower come with decent size balcony. Bathroom is a bit small but ok with us. Cafe serves wonderful meals with friendly staff. There’s a Devocean dive centre operated there, local DM are knowledgeable and friendly too. If you want hassle free, the dive centre can help you to arrange pick up from Cebu Airport all the way to the island with charges. Hope to make a trip back there again...
Booked our stay through devocean divers. Little pricier then normal for us but the service is great and free a la carte breakfast every morning! Rooms are very clean and super convenient if you are diving with devocean divers.
We stayed here for 3 nights and we had a great stay! The place is very nice and the rooms are clean and nice. the restaurant facing the ocean is the best thing!! this hotel is located directly on the beach and they provide sun bed and towel for free!
Its a well known place for divers. What you might get from my review is that it retains its good value. Facilities are as good as it can be in malapascua and the vibe , especially around sunset is amazing.also worth mentioning is that you dont get lonely, even if you are solo.
