We stayed here over the weekend of 3/24/18 for 1 night, our experienced was wonderful the best experienced I had with any hotel in the Island. And I have been frequently visiting Malapascua yearly. We arrived in the island earlier than the check in time, upon registering in the front desk we were informed that the room we booked online is close to an on going contraction so to avoid all the noise we were upgraded to an Ocean View Room. Very big room, very clean, the linens were clean, towels were changed daily. The staff are very attentive, interactive it seems like they are enjoying there job. Food was okay, we enjoyed our Saturday Night in the resort, they had a live band and it played until 1am so it was kinda noisy from our room but it was fine.. above all I highly recommend

Food was perhaps the best on the island. It was our go to place to eat! After a stressful journey to the island, our greeting and welcome drink from the owner put the biggest smile on our faces. The live music nights were always fun. The staff were lovely. Diving experience was great. I honestly couldn't fault the place. They have it all! Thank you for a wonderful stay!!!
